Natural bottle link love (sponsored)

Thanks to Philips AVENT for sponsoring this post today.

I’m on the first day of a two-week break from sugar, caffeine, and dairy.  This morning I dropped my kids off at school and came straight home. NO COFFEE STOP. I need a medal or some brownie points — or a brownie. Mmm. Brownies.

No. I’m sitting down with my lemon water to share a few links with you. Some things I’ve pinned or admired over the past couple of weeks:


Baby bottles with monkeys

Philips AVENT Natural Bottles, whose wide mouths make them easy to clean, have new designs: Monkeys and Flowers. If your baby is at daycare, this could be an easy way to make your bottles stand out from the other babies’ bottles. New pacifiers are available to match, too.


(These designs are only at BabiesRUs, but clear AVENT Natural Bottles are everywhere, including Walgreens.)

Grey Kimono-style baby top

This grey kimono-style top is so sweet and perfect for babies of either gender. $8.99 on zulily today!


Cute idea – make letters out of LEGO for child’s room. Via Apartment Therapy.


Wonder twin infant portrait! Wish you had boy/girl twins now? Aren’t they the cutest? Photo from Erin Morris Photography, via by Audrey from Mom Generations.


Shadow puppets templates you can print yourself, from Handmade Charlotte. Just add straws.


This post on Alpha Mom is a funny list of tips for maintaining your sanity.



I’m not sure where this came from — I think maybe this etsy store. I’m obsessed with geographically inspired wall art. I’d like to have these showing the three places where my kids grandparents live.

Thanks for spending a few sugar-free moments with me, and to Philips AVENT for sponsoring this post. Did you know their natural bottles feature an advanced anti-colic system, come in glass and polypropylene and the extra soft, flexible nipple shape mimics mom’s real breast? Follow them on Facebook if you’re a fan!

P.S. The natural bottles go with the breast pump we talked about recently.
