I am an HR professional and an AF wife currently residing in Santa Barbara County. I enjoy reading and watching romantic comedies. I also enjoy video games, but with my busy schedule, I haven't had a chance to play in a while so I'm pretty rusty. My kind of Saturday night is sitting on the sofa with my husband with a cold glass of moscato.
I absolutely loved this toothbrush (my teeth felt clean all day) until I had to replace the batteries yesterday. I've had this toothbrush for a month. I brush my teeth twice daily, sometimes more if I feel the need to. The first time that I opened up the toothbrush to insert batteries, it was fine. No problems whatsoever! However, last night, I had the hardest time prying the two pieces apart. My fingers were in pain! To make matters worse, once I had the darn thing open and had inserted the new batteries, it is now impossible to close the toothbrush. I've placed the toothbrush on the counter and have attempted to use all of my body weight to snap the two pieces in place with no luck. The only way that I can use the toothbrush now is if I hold the two pieces in place. Until Oral-B can find a better solution, I would not recommend this toothbrush. That is, unless you wouldn't mind purchasing a new toothbrush every month when the batteries need to be replaced.
As a first-time mom, I was nervous about clipping my baby's nails for the first time because I was afraid that I might cut him. My fear of hurting him was so great that I would avoid cutting his nails myself by having my experienced guests (parents) clip his nails for me when they visited. This product definitely helped to ease my nerves. The attached light is bright enough so that I can differentiate between the whites of my baby's nails and the pinks. Also, when placing the clipper under my baby's nails prior to clipping, I can see the outline of the clipper under his nail (ensuring that I don't clip his skin) - I attribute this to the extremely bright light. I would recommend this product to all parents.
I was using another brand of diapers and received these Huggies Snugglers for testing purposes. After going through the package of diapers, I have become a Huggies convert. We received the other brand from the hospital so we figured that they were a great brand to stick with. Boy, were we wrong. Now, we did not experience anything extremely negative with the other brand, although Baby did develop a bad rash while on the unnamed brand. He also had a few leaks with that brand. But Huggies Snugglers did outshine that competitor. Huggies' diaper for newborns is exceptionally softer than the other brand - great because Baby has extremely sensitive skin. I also noticed that any urine is soaked up by the Huggies diaper - so much so that the only thing that gives away the wet diaper is the bulging diaper and the blue line. Thanks to the diaper study, we are no longer consumers of the other brand. These are great. If you haven't tried them, you should!
This concealer is amazing! I recently gave birth to my son and have had very minimal sleep resulting in undereye circles/bags. This concealer has been a lifesaver as evidenced by my son's pediatrician telling me that I looked well-rested. This product provides great coverage (a little goes a long way) and does not require a reapplication. It is also extremely inexpensive. The only thing that I dislike is how hard it is to get my hands on this product because it flies off of the shelves so quickly. I've had the best luck locating this product at Wal-Mart.
This pump is great! I can easily get 5 oz after 20 minutes of pumping. It was also great that my insurance covered the entire expense. I would have to say that the bottles that come with the set are terrible. I can't even count the number of times that I have lost breast milk due to the faulty bottle cap, which is used for feedings. I now no longer use the bottle for feedings.
The Medela Nipple Shield is a lifesaver!!! I just had my son a few days ago. Even before his birth, my husband and I had decided that we were going to solely breastfeed. Well, baby had plans of his own. He would latch and suckle for a few minutes and then fall asleep. I was so worried that he wasn't getting enough to eat that I started supplementing with formula. Then everything started going downhill. My milk came in and my baby refused my breast. He would scream and push me away. I was getting frustrated and was ready to admit defeat when I remembered that I had purchased this nipple shield per the recommendation of my sisters. Thank goodness that I listened because it has worked wonders. No more constantly engorged breasts because he actually eats now! Not only is this product useful, it is also relatively cheap. I believe that I paid around $6 on Amazon for one shield and would gladly pay this again.
I love this conditioner! It made my hair very noticeably softer. Think dry, tangled hair. My husband enjoys running his fingers through my hair and his fingers used to always get snagged in the tangles. Well, no more tangles with this product. This conditioner also smells amazing! Initially, I thought that the scent was overpowering, but after rinsing it out of my hair, it is lovely! Every time that I used this conditioner, my husband would randomly come up to me and smell my hair. He has never done that with any of the other hair products that I have used. Another great product by Herbal Essences that I would recommend.
This product is amazing! If you're looking for a reason to get out of bed each morning, this is it. I love sitting by the Keurig as this product is brewed. It smells great and tastes even better. I can't handle much caffeine so I always brew myself a small cup using the k-cup that I used for my husband's coffee. Then I'll add some hot chocolate and milk. Delicious!!!
I haven't been able to find this product at my local commissary, but it can definitely be found at Wal-Mart.
These are delicious if you prefer sweeter mixed drinks. I would avoid drinking it at room temperature (after holding it for a while) as it is best cold. I also love that there is a variety of flavors to choose from so you never really get sick of them.
I have been able to purchase this product in most grocery stores (Von's, Albertson's, Foods Co) and/or liquor stores.
