BornFree Sippy and Twist’nPop Cups Review and Giveaway

Being a mother of two I have had my share of sippy cup purchasing experience. With our girl we tried several different kinds and she ended up catching on with one particular brand so we stuck with it until she was able to drink from a non-lid cup, even then a cup with a lid comes in handy when your kids are determined to spill just about everything.

With little guy it’s been different. We have tried him with his sister’s old sippy cups and he refuses to drink from them and says they are her cups unless of course she is using one then he wants what she has, typical little brother behaviour. We have bought several different kinds and styles of sippy cup, even one that almost resembles a bottle but nope, no dice. He can’t manage to drink out of them. The spouts flow too fast or are too slow. We have been looking for a good quality sippy cup that doesn’t leak and our little guy can actually drink from properly.

We were happy to review BornFree sippy cups and the newest line in BornFree cups -the Twist’nPop cup. Incase you didn’t know, BornFree is the worlds leading BPA-free baby brand and specializes in designing baby and toddler products like baby bottles, pacifiers and sippy cups using safe materials with the smartest innovations. BornFree cups and bottles feature the unique BornFree venting system, designed to reduce colic and middle-ear infections.

The sippy cup is what we were most interested in although the Twist’nPop cup will come in handy for our girl to use or for little guy when he is a bit older and masters the first stage of drinking like a big boy!

The sippy cup came in blue, which he loved. It’s leak-proof and has the unique BornFree venting system, rubber spout, removable handles so you can use it as a beginner or for toddlers and of course the lid. The size is good, holds about 12oz. Very simple to take apart to clean and very simple to assemble back together, no more fighting with crooked lids. It is also dishwasher safe.

As for little guy, it seems he had a very easy time drinking out of this one. No complaints, in which case he would usually throw the cup on the floor and say “it’s broken”. He’s enjoying his new BornFree sippy cup and I’m happy at the fact it works for both of us.
The Twist’nPop cup is a 14oz toddler drinking cup with a twist-straw mouth and silicon straw. It is quite big in size and has an ergonomic design making it easy for smaller hands to hold it. Although I find the cap is harder for little guy to twist open and close but he is still just mastering the sippy cup itself. To open the Twist’nPop you twist the cap counter-clockwise until the straw pops-out and to close you just twist the cap the opposite way until you see the arrow and know that it’s properly sealed to keep the straw clean and prevent leaks. All parts are removable, easy to wash like the sippy cup are also dishwasher safe.

Iams Healthy Inside, Healthy Outside

Iams ProActive Health – Review and Giveaway!
“Healthy inside, Healthy outside”

Giveaway closed! Thank you and congrats to the winner!

Meet Zeus. Zeus is our family dog, a 3 year old 110lb Fawn Doberman Pinscher. His breed is rare but it’s his personality that makes him ours. He’s a great pet, loyal and loving. Although, at times he can be a little crazy by mudding up the house, barking at the mailman/neighbourhood kids or whining to no end, we still love him. He’s our Zeus & we wouldn’t trade him for anything, he’s truly a special member of this family.
As a member of our family he not only deserves love and attention but he also deserves the best food and nutrition. Our only problem: finding a good quality dog food Zeus both enjoys and is healthy for him!

He is picky about his food, we haven’t found a quality brand he enjoys – he will eat what he’s offered but you can tell he’s thinking “yuck”. There are so many different brands of dogfood out there from store brands to the more expensive brands, there is a difference in the ingredients so read the health information on bags of dog food you purchase carefully to find out what exactly your dog is eating. Certain foods are made for certain types of dogs, ages and breeds. Zeus had the opportunity to try out a new type of dog food – Iams ProActive Health!

Iams has come out with a new type of dog food called Iams ProActive Health. Iams ProActive Health formula has PreBiotics which work inside the digestive tract to promote healthy digestion and strong defenses.”Healthy inside. Healthy outside.”

There are different formulas for every dog – large breed, mature, puppy, small breed etc. We picked up a *bag formulated for large breed dogs*

Zeus took to the food as he does any new food – with precaution. He hesitated on trying something new but after a few attempts we got him eating it! He usually eats once a day, out of his very LARGE dog food bowl, half a bowl usually around the same time we have supper. With the other brands we noticed he wasn’t eating enough, he always seemed hungry. Now since he’s been on Iams honestly, he’s eating everything in his bowl. So we don’t know if its because he knows its good for him or that it taste good but either way he likes it! So far so good, knowing my dog likes it, will actually eat it and it’s good for him inside and out, I recommend trying Iams Proactive Health for your furry, four legged friend! One feeding tip that can help reduce the stress of introducing a new food to your dog is, mix a little of his old brand with the new brand and generally eliminate the old food, let him introduce himself to the food, don’t push him or make him eat it if he doesn’t want to. Also, make sure to have a fresh bowl of water for fido to wash it down with!

Sorry! The giveaway ended on May 14th but for more information on Iams, their products and pet care tips visit

Lysol Healthy Touch Winner!

Lysol Healthy Touch Review and Giveaway!

Germs are gross plain and simple. They cause bacteria which is easily shared among people in a household. I can admit I have become somewhat of a germaphobe since having children. I wipe things after sticky hands touch them, tables, chairs, door knobs, railings, toys you name it, especially when they are sick!

We try to enforce hand washing in this household – hundreds of bacterial germs can get on you just by using something like a public door handle. With the oldest in school and the youngest who puts everything in his mouth – cleanliness is not an option.

The kitchen gets a lot of traffic, kids running in and out the back door – rule: wash your hands if you’ve been playing outside. Sounds simple until my five year old tries it. Dirt on the soap dispenser and soapy water all around the sink from using way too much. Bar soap? Forget it. They harbour bacteria which can spread to the next one to touch it plus they aren’t as effective for killing germs. What a mess, until now.

Lysol came out with a great way to keep the dispenser clean & get hands washed – the Lysol Healthy Touch, No Touch hand soap system. We have all used the automatic hand soap/sanitizers, water taps and hand dryers in public washrooms and now Lysol is bringing it into our homes.

Having had the opportunity to try it (thanks to the people at Lysol for sending me a cute gift basket), I can honestly say I wish I had tried it sooner! A neat looking, counter top soap dispenser that uses a automatic motion sensor to distribute just the right amount of soap needed to sanatize those dirty hands and it’s made by Lysol who are one of my favourite brands for household cleaning products.

My daughter was amazed at the fact there are no pumps or buttons to press and parents there is an on/off switch at the back just incase, you wouldn’t want to waste any soap! It doesn’t drip or leave any residue where the soap comes out so no left over soap mess on the counter. The hand soap itself smells good & fresh with moisturizers leaving your hands feeling silky soft too!

The Lysol no touch hand soap system can be purchased at most stores that sell Lysol products like Walmart – $9.95 for a starter kit which includes the dispenser, soap & 4 AA batteries and $4.95 for a refill bottle of hand soap. The hand soap comes in two great smelling fragrances – Hydrating cucumber splash and Cleansing green tea & Ginger.

WIN IT!!!!
It’s time for a giveaway! Lysol and I are going to give one lucky reader their very own Lysol Healthy Touch-No Touch HandSoap system!
