BabyBond- Review (CLOSED)



I was very excited to have the chance to review on the BabyBond. I am very pro breastfeeding and also feel it’s a baby’s rights to feed in public when needed. Babybond will make this easier and more pleasant for everyone. Your baby won’t need to be covered up, mommy can watch baby and your breast is covered up.
I am not currently breastfeeding any babies right now so I asked my good friend Steph to review the Babybond with her 11 week old. She doesn’t usually use any cover-ups for breastfeeding but was more then willing to try this out. Below is her lists of pros & cons.

Pros-
- Lightweight
- Folds compactly (won’t take up much space in diaper bag)
- Great colour
- Unique design
- Worked well for sash style (nursing from the top)
- Liked that the directions were sewn in in case you forgot

Cons:
- Required some maneuvering to get baby in place where nothing else showed
- If baby pulled off, you were very exposed
- Wearing it belly band style (nursing from bottom) I found the wrap didn’t stay in place as easily

Overall, I’d give it 3.5 out of 5.

Thank you so much Steph for reviewing this product for me and taking the photos.

hairfree Brushes- Review (CLOSED)

I have THICK FRIZZY hair, and I really hate it. I’ve tried many different brushes and products just to make my hair look kind of nice and most of the time it’s been a huge fail. Until I found hairfree brushes.

Out of their two brushes their flat one is my favorite, my hair feels softer after using it and it doesn’t frizz my hair out. One thing I love to do with my hair is straightening it with a flat iron. One thing I HATE about flat ironing my hair is the fact it dries and damages my hair. With hairfree brushes they use the “latest in ceramic technology to produce straight, soft, manageable results!”

Below is a photo of what my hair looked like right after straightening it with one of the brushes brush. It was a lot faster to get straighten but the only down side was about an hour later my hair puffed up. I can’t say if this reflects on the brushes or on just my stinkin frizzy hair, but I don’t usually have a frizz problem when I use a flat iron. I also could have followed the directions wrong, I’m no good at doing my hair.

One of my favorite features of the brushes is the fact you can remove the hair from them but just simply pushing up on a switch. I loose a lot of hair so this is a nice feature for me.

I know for sure I will not be going back to my regular brush. hairfree has helped my daily hair brushing/styling by making it a lot easier and happier.
