5 Ways to Get in Shape as a Busy Mom

get in shapeA lot of new moms think that once their baby arrives that they’ll never find time to work out. They resign themselves to not getting back in the shape they crave. It is possible for moms to get fit even while they’re caring for their baby, you just need to find the right fitness regimen that works for you. Many gyms offer day care to mind your baby or classes designed for both of you. There are also many ways to work out in the comfort of your own home or outdoors at the park - with your baby! Here’s five ways you can get in shape as a busy mom.

1. ‘Mommy & me’ yoga classes

“Mommy & me” classes are designed not only to help you get in shape, but also to help you and your baby bond while playfully interacting. Moms build strength, flexibility, and muscle tone through the traditional yoga movements, and babies to get explore movement as well through poses and massages.

Helpful tip: Bring a convenient, double-sided padded play mat to keep things clean.

2. Hiking

Use a front or back carrier to haul your little one around as you take a long walk or hike. Go early in the day when the sun isn’t so harsh and be sure to dress baby (and yourself!) appropriately for the weather. Bring plenty of snacks and water to stay fueled. Sing or talk to your baby while you hike for a bonding experience.

Helpful tip: It’s best to bring a hiking buddy. If you have to go alone, always inform someone when and where you’re going, as well as when you should be expected back.

3. Stroller fitness classes

These total body work outs are made for moms who want to work out with their baby in the stroller. They include power-walking, muscle toning, and activities to keep baby entertained through it all. These fun classes can be found indoors and outdoors. Check out programs like Please N Thank You Fitness in NYC or the nationwide Stroller Strides program. For outdoors classes in cooler weather, don’t forget to pack a Babee Covee. The 6-in1 baby blanket and cover makes the perfect stroller blanket and can also be used as a nursing cover, car seat cover, play time blanket and more.

4. Go for a swim

It’s safe to bring your little one into the water around four months. He or she will love splashing around! Lift baby up and down to work out your arms. Move baby back and forth to work out your chest and back. You could also find a safe flotation device for baby to sit in and splash while you work out, but always remain right along side. Be sure to make sure the water is warm enough so baby is comfortable.

5. Dance party!

Dancing is a great way to get in shape without feeling like you’re exercising. Babies are easily entertained by music and they’ll quickly imitate your silly movements. Not only will you get your heart rate up and build muscle, but your little one will learn muscle control, balance, and coordination. All you need is 20 minutes a day to feel better.

5 Time Saving Tips for Busy Parents

time saving tipsBeing a parent isn’t easy. The demands change as your kids get older, but you never seem to get a break. Whether you’re changing diapers or driving to soccer practice, you probably feel like it would be helpful just to get a few extra minutes back in your day. Here are 5 time saving tips for busy parents. Use them individually as needed or combine them all to maximize the savings.

1. Plan your meals ahead of time.

Create a detailed meal plan of every meal you’ll be cooking for the week. Shop accordingly to get everything you need. Then, when you have some time, prepare as many meals as you can. Cook it ahead of time and store in the fridge until dinner time, or just combine the necessary ingredients. Consider cooking more soups and stews that can be prepared at any time and don’t take much of your attention when cooking.

2. Invest in multi-use items.

Not only can you save money by buying only what you need, but you save space and reduce clutter by having fewer items around. By reducing the number of products you’re forced to lug around, you’ll spend less time packing and unpacking the car, and you’ll find yourself more mobile with your kids. For example, purchase a stroller with built-in car seat. Leave the stroller piece (which is smaller than a regular stroller) in your trunk for easy mobility. Also, eliminate the need to pack everything except the kitchen sink when going out with baby or toddler; overflowing diaper bags take time to pack, not to mention the time it takes to go back to the house if you forget something!  The Babee Covee is a 6-in-1 baby blanket and cover that can be used as a car seat canopy cover, shopping cart cover, nursing cover, stroller blanket/cover, high chair cover, and playtime blanket. Products like this will save you time and money too!

3. Establish a routine.

Humans are creatures of habit. We naturally like to do the same thing at the same times. Exploit this trait by creating consistent, healthy habits. Your body and mind will naturally fall into rhythm and your daily tasks and chores won’t seem so stressful. Plus, once your family knows what they have to do (personal chores, dinner time, bedtime routine, etc.), everything will run smoothly. For example, set a bedtime and stick to it. It’s easier to get your kids to bed if they’re little bodies are naturally falling asleep

4. Hold weekly family meetings.

Meetings are helpful because it makes everyone feel like they are a part of running the family unit. This is especially helpful for kids. Use these meetings as a time to discuss the week’s meal plan (so no one objects right as you sit down to eat) and discuss any activities or plans that are upcoming. This way, everything can be accounted for and nothing comes up last minute.

Helpful tip: Pair your family meetings with a fun game or activity to promote bonding.

5. Let your family and friends help.

If you’re honest with your family about your goals and your need for more time, you’ll be surprised who is willing to help. Often grandparents and other relatives are wishing they got to see your kids more often but don’t want to be intrusive. Use them as helpful tools. Let the family spend quality time with your little ones while you get through your chores, prepare a week’s worth of dinners, or run some errands. Not only will you get more done, but you’ll strengthen the relationship between your kids and their family.

Mom’Preneur Spotlight + Giveaway‏: Buzzy

buzzyspotlightThis month’s MomPreneur Spotlight features MMJ Labs’ Dr. Amy Baxter, mom of three and the inventor of an innovative device called Buzzy. Dr. Baxter began her journey about 10 years ago when her 4-year-old son had a traumatic experience while getting a routine vaccination at the doctor’s office. She then wanted to find a fast and effective solution to provide pain relief for the many children and adults in the world suffering from needle phobia.

Dr. Baxter’s “aha” moment occurred after driving home from work one night; Dr. Baxter noticed when she got home her hands were numb from the vibrating steering wheel in her car. She began testing her idea in her basement (later called “The Hive”) and found success with a personal massager and a bag of frozen peas. Buzzy today consists of a palm-sized high frequency/low amplitude vibrator and a wing-shaped ice pack to confuse the body’s nerves and distract attention away from a needle’s poke. Buzzy’s effectiveness comes from the physiology called Gate Control. Larger cold and vibration nerves crowd out smaller pain nerve sensations when both are felt simultaneously. Like running a burn under cold water or a dentist jiggling a jaw, the brain cannot separate the sharpness of a poke from the cold and motion sensations.

While Buzzy began as a vibrating bee for Dr. Baxter’s son’s shot phobia, it quickly became a solution for adult injection pain and burning. Now, Buzzy is being used for everything from itching to splinters to bee-stings to blocked milk ducts. To her surprise, Dr. Baxter has heard from users enthusiastic about Buzzy for autism distraction; eczema itching; botox and tattoos (and tattoo removal) laser hair removal and tick removal and even tummy tickling to keep infants from rolling off the changing table.

Winning the 2011 Medical Design Excellence Award in Over the Counter and Self-Care product category, Buzzy is the perfect solution to bring to the doctor or use for shots at home. “To many adults, needle pain may not seem like a big deal, but Buzzy has actually saved lives,” says Dr. Baxter. Over 36,000 Buzzies are now around the world and used in over 1200 hospitals helping people overcome needle and other types of pain.

Car Seat Safety Tips for Parents Traveling With Small Children

car seat tipsWhen it comes to traveling by car with little ones, parents want to be prepared to make the trip as safe as possible. It’s not always easy to know what to do to protect your children, which is why you can find different resources online to help guide parents on how to keep kids safe in and around vehicles. As a mom of four and as a certified car seat safety instructor, I encourage parents to do their research on vehicle safety.  Below are four tips for choosing the right car seat.

One of my favorite sites to help parents find the right car seat for their situation is Healthy Children, which is from the American Academy of Pediatrics. They have a list of car seats on the market each year that gives the sizes and prices of each car seat.

Parents should remember that four things need to be true for a car seat to be the right one for them:

1. The car seat must fit your child.

You should choose your car seat based on your child’s age and size. As children grow they may no longer fit in the same seat. Check the manual for your car seat to determine the maximum weight and height allowed by the manufacturer.

2. The car seat must fit your car.

Car seats are not designed to fit every vehicle. To make sure it’s the right fit for your vehicle you should test the car seat that you are planning to buy and also read the car seat section of your vehicle’s owner’s manual for more information.

3. The car seat should fit your budget.

Car seats can be expensive but just because it costs more does not mean it’s a better choice. Making sure that it’s the right fit for your child and vehicle are the better criteria to go by. Choose the car seat that best suits your needs. Keep in mind you should never purchase a used car seat without knowing the history of the seat and checking to see if it has been recalled. If you have any questions about the seat, call the car seat manufacturer.

4. Most importantly, you need to use the car seat correctly EVERY time.

You have to make sure that your car seat is facing the right direction according to your child’s age. Infants and toddlers under age 2 should ride in rear-facing car seats. It’s also important that you use harness straps and chest clips correctly so they fit snugly across your child’s body. Always follow the instructions from the car seat manufacturer to ensure that you are following all of the guidelines.

Just because a seat is fancy or a brand name doesn’t mean it is the right one. Every car seat on the market meets all of the U.S. standards for car seat safety. Cup holders, colorful decorations, or licensed characters do not help at all with safety.

For more information on car safety for kids visit www.safekids.org and www.safercar.gov.

Find a car seat inspection station near you at http://www.nhtsa.gov/apps/cps/index.htm. A certified technician will inspect your car seat and show you the correct way to install it.

no slip baby bowlWritten by Brabara Schantz or Baby Dipper Bowl

As a stay-at-home mom of 2 sets of twin babies, Barbara faced the daunting task of feeding them. Frustrated with the bowls she had already purchased, she researched and bought other bowls, but still remained disappointed. She needed a bowl that required only one hand to successfully feed a baby, but wasn’t able to find one on the market that satisfied this need. The vision for the Baby Dipper® bowl came to her when her twin girls were about 6 months old, not long after they started eating baby cereal and other pureed foods. After much learning and hard work, she was able to bring the Baby Dipper bowl to market so that others can enjoy true one-handed feeding.

MomPreneur Spotlight: Psi Bands – Enter to Win!

nausea reliefMompreneur Romy Taormina always knew she wanted to run her own business, but had no idea that it would start with her head in the toilet! Romy invented Psi Bands, stylish drug-free wrist bands for the relief of nausea, after she experienced terrible morning sickness during her two pregnancies. She finally found relief by using acupressure wrist bands. Acupressure, an ancient healing art that uses pressure to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities, has grown in popularity because it is effective and easy to self-administer. However, Taormina was dissatisfied with existing products on the market that she felt were drab and uncomfortable so she came up with the idea for Psi Bands. FDA-cleared Psi Bands are both fashionable and functional for others who suffer from nausea.

With Psi Bands, those who suffer from the VERY common, yet debilitating condition of nausea can feel better – in style and comfort! The drug-free wrist bands work for the relief of nausea due to morning sickness, motion sickness/travel, chemotherapy and anesthesia. They are adjustable and worn around the wrist like a watch and at the acupressure point. They are comfortable, waterproof, reusable, affordable, and, of course, fashionable — with six fun designs to choose from. The product makes a thoughtful gift for holiday travelers who suffer from motion sickness.

Psi Bands have been featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, The Jeff Probst Show, and Good Morning America. Psi Bands were voted the most buzz-worthy product of the year at the 2012 Travel Goods Association (TGA) trade show, and are a 2011 Huggies MomInspired Winner. Entrepreneur Magazine called Psi Bands a “stroke of genius” and Oprah’s O Magazine called them “grace under pressure.”

Now through 12/31/13, receive 15% off Psi Bands on Amazon (and sold by Psi Bands) using code MOMPACT1. Psi Bands sell for approximately $15/set depending on retailer and location. For a complete list of retailers and/or to learn more about Psi Bands, visit www.psibands.com.

We can make it fun—and dare we say cool–to know more words than we ever imagined possible.

PullyPalz

never lose pacifer

This innovative toy not only entertains baby, it keeps a pacifier in view and reach!  With PullyPalz, dropped pacis even come back… Which is great for those times when parents need an ‘extra hand’.

The toy uses something similar to a pulley system… When baby drops one, and it falls to the side, another is in view and reach.  By grabbing the one in view and pulling toward mouth, the dropped paci comes back!

Mo Mo, Moo Moo, and Puddles are always ready to lend a hand…or hoof!

7 Must-Know Car Seat Safety Tips for Parents

car seat tipsParents want their kids to be safe while riding in a car so it’s important they take the time to learn how to properly use a car seat. There are several options when it comes to car seats and the type you need for your child depends on factors like your child’s size, age and also the type of car you have. Once you’ve determined which car seat is appropriate for your child, you have to learn what mistakes to avoid making with the car seat. Here are seven tips all parents should know when it comes to car seat safety:

1. Plce the car seat in the right position. You should never place the car seat in the front seat of the car where it can be hit by an inflated air bag and injure your child. The car seat should be placed in the back seat and preferably in the center seat, away from the car doors.

2. Make sure you install the seat correctly. Properly installing a car seat may take some time to figure out so it’s important to read the instruction manual. The car seat needs to be secured tightly and facing the right direction. There are child car seat inspection stations across the country that you can go to and see if it’s been installed properly.

3. Buckle up. When buckling up your child, make sure that the harness or clip is even with your child’s armpits and not placed over the abdomen or neck. You also want to check that the straps or harness are not loose and instead lie flat against your child’s chest. To keep the belt from becoming slack, look for a special locking clip at your baby store.

4. Keep baby from slouching forward. You can use tightly rolled baby blankets or cloth diapers and place alongside your child’s shoulders in order to prevent slouching. Even better check out Baby Elephant Ears which is the perfect solution!

5. Get the right booster seat. Older children need booster seats that use both a lap and shoulder belt. Even booster seats that are backless still need to be used with a shoulder belt and never just a lap-only belt.

6. Know when to switch to a forward-facing car seat. It’s recommended that a child rides in a rear-facing car seat until they reach age 2. You should also check the car seat manufacturer’s instructions which state the highest weight or height allowed. Rear-facing car seats are safest for infants because the back of the seat protects baby’s head, neck and torso.

7. Check to make sure your car seat hasn’t been recalled. If you’re using an older car seat or a used car seat, find out how long it can safely be used for by contacting the manufacturer. You might also be able to get a replacement model from the manufacturer if your car seat has been recalled.

Invented by accident by Alma Moussa during a playdate, the Babee Covee is a versatile baby blanket and cover that has six uses in one! This award-winning, must-have baby gear eliminates the need to buy, pack, and carry bulky single purpose items while protecting baby from germs where ever you go; no more overflowing diaper bag’ no more blanket falling off the car seat and no more germs on publicly shared items!

The Babee Covee can be used as: 1) car seat “tent” cover 2) stroller cover/blanket 3) shopping cart cover 4) high chair cover 5) nursing cover and 6) playtime blanket. It easily attaches to a car seat or stroller and does not fall off! It can also be used to cover the baby for privacy while sleeping (includes a peek in window).
