We received some wonderful feedback (and an adorable photo) recently about The Zaky hands by Nurtured by Designs that was too great not to share. Below is what she said: After our daughter was born at 28 weeks, a group of friends sent us the Zaky hands. They are wonderful! I actually call them magic [...]
Three weeks after Tanner was born our family was in town running errands. Dinnertime approached so we decided to stop and eat at a new restaurant in town called Wing Stop. I am not sure why, but it seems that the majority of wing eaters are men as Ashlyn and I were the only female [...]
Just got off a water ride at an amusement park, and he was completely soaked… And the Safety Tat is still on and the marker is still in tact! He loves his “cool sticker” (even though you can’t tell from this look on his face – HaHa!)! Thanks for such a great product!! - Sarah

Last year a friend of mine delivered early and her little girl spent several weeks in the NICU. We don’t live near each other so I felt helpless to be able to do something to show how much I cared. Then I remembered The Zaky hands that we offer on Mom 4 Life and together with a few friends we sent two Zaky’s to enfold and embrace the little bundle of joy in her incubator. When my friend sent me this photo below, I couldn’t help but smile. Isn’t it simply precious the way her hand is wrapping around the Zaky finger?
The Zaky is a soft but weighed pillow, partially filled that conforms to the baby’s body. It imitates the look, feel, weight, scent, and warmth of the parents’ hand and forearm. It assures proper positioning, helps with pain management and sleep, provides a sense of protection, and assists with the physical and psychological development of the child.
Growing up is a big job. So many things to learn and do. So many new things to try. . . Quinten is so over his high chair, he is almost two years old after all and the high chair is just too babish. On to the big boy chairs! Oh wait, hold on there [...]

Don’t you love when you find out a second use for a product you already own? This happened to me when I was looking over our Siliskins Silicone Glass Bottle Covers. My kids are too old to use bottles, BUT they do use cups. I often use small glass jars for drinking cups for the [...]

“My two year old daughter has gluten intolerance, dairy protein intolerance, soy protein intolerance, and is allergic to eggs. Needless to say, it is very difficult to feed her – especially while we are out and about. I purchased the Baby Banquet in hopes that I could pack her special lunches when we’d go out [...]
Let’s talk diapers! Do you use cloth diapers? What brands do you like? What is the average price you are willing to pay? These are some of the questions I want to ask you so I created a quick survey and hope you will take a moment to view it and share your thoughts. Thank [...]
Moby Wrap oh Moby Wrap, how I love you. Let me count the ways: 1. Your one size fits all design fits me every time 2. You support my baby so well I can hold him longer 3. You are so soft and comfortable 4. You give my back great support 5. You come in [...]
Thank you to Catherine Brooks for this guest post (she will be writing a 5 part series – one blog post per month) on a topic that has or will affect many moms: cesarean recovery. Ok, the baby is out. You are in love…and you had surgery. Any other time, a 7cm opening and abdominal [...]
“I just thought I’d add my two cents about BabyLegs….. yet another great use. Late last week, Ronnie fell on something in his room (the boys were in the middle of cleaning it) and sliced his wrist open BAD. Luckily, although it was nasty (double slices), it wasn’t bad enough to require stitches. So I [...]
"The Moby Wrap that I purchased is fantastic! I am a chiropractor and I have tried many slings and baby carriers with my 3 children….this is by far the best. It distributes the weight evenly between your back, hips and shoulders making it more comfortable and better biomechanically than any other I have tried. Just [...]
"I just wanted to give a RAVING review about the BellaBand…I know, I'm not the first to applaud the invention of this product; and I definitely won't be the last! I bought it while pregnant with my 4th baby and used it through the whole pregnancy and even postpartum and loved how I felt more [...]
"I have to write to tell you how great the SplatMat floor protector is by BooginHead! I have used several other kinds of floor protectors under my daughters chair at our table and I am so much more impressed by the SplatMat. The material is so durable and it's the perfect size. I love the way the Brown Flourish [...]
Since my girls live and breathe soccer, they’ll put them to use whenever they arrive! The BabyLegs work so much better with their soccer jerseys than putting a long sleeved tee underneath because they get hot as the game goes on. Taking BabyLegs off is easy… and modest, lol! Since the older kids started borrowing [...]
(Don't miss the 10% discount mentioned below!) Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a new policy statement calling on manufacturers and the government to institute labels on foods that pose the highest risk for choking in kids. Citing choking as the leading cause of death for children under 14, the AAP estimates that 1 [...]

"I just wanted to comment that I LOVE the Skinies top I got a few months ago. I wear it all the time it is comfortable. It keeps my belly covered while nursing- since I am 6 feet tall almost nothing is long enough. It also keeps my belly covered when my shirt gets moved around while babywearing. I [...]
Every so often I discover that a product on Mom 4 Life has more uses than I expected. The My Gooling Body Pillow by Hedy's Creations has been just such a product. Originally created to be a set of toddler sized body pillows, we at the Ledeboer house have found they can be useful for [...]
Mom 4 Life, DeAnna, made this adorable Diaper Cupcake for a friend's shower. Isn't it great? The napkin (if you'll have it) under the cupcake is a Yaya Blanket Customizable Rag Quilt. The base, or wrapper, for the cupcake is a SwaddleDesigns Lightweight Marquisette Swaddling Blanket™. The frosting is the minky side of a Lil' [...]
ADORABLE! I really can’t say it any other way. The challenge for you is to figure out if I am talking about the My Biby Tee or Quinten:)! I will say that we get presented with more than a fair share of baby tee shirts and snap tees to consider at Mom 4 Life. It [...]
If I were to create a list of my favorite winter baby products the Snuggle Me’z would be toward the very top of that list. This combo car seat snuggler and blanket is the perfect product for our cold weather. I don’t ever have to worry about having a blanket with us when we leave [...]

We had to share this great TummyTub feedback we just got with you! "Good morning! We received our TummyTub a couple days ago and I just had to write to you. Bath time was so difficult with my second child (born in December). Once his cord was no longer an issue, we started using the [...]
Here's what Mom 4 Life, Sarah, has to say about Sock Ons: I just wanted to give a testimony on the “Sock Ons” product that you carry. We are forever putting Piper’s socks back on her. Now that she’s crawling full speed ahead it seems like her socks are left behind her! Or she’ll manage [...]
Quinten is turning a corner. This weekend he tried his first meal of rice cereal and man did he love it. I first mixed up a small amount just to let him try it and as soon as that spoon was brought close to his mouth he was ready for it. I made multiple trips [...]
