Now for the surprise... Hehe...
There will be a small runner-up prize. If you're the runner up and you don't want the prize you can turn it down. BUT I am out of envelopes! Gotta hit Wally World this weekend and buy some more. So the runner up will not get their prize for a little longer. I will contact the runner-up via email and they will have 48 hours to respond. ;)

Safety 1st potty

She started using the potty on Monday night, and by Sunday morning I wanted to throw this seat away! :( Why? Because the seat is a sponge. So guess what happens to the pee when she goes? That's right, it soaks into the sponge and WON'T COME OUT. I ring out the seat and wash the whole thing with antibacterial hand soap every single time she pees and yet the seat REEKS of urine. And her behind reeks of urine from sitting on it. Last night after her bath she sat on it but did not pee, and when she got up and I was dressing her I noticed she suddenly once again REEKED to high heaven of stale urine. JUST from sitting on that stinky seat, fresh out of a bath! Oh I am just so MAD, SAD, and feeling like I've been HAD! This thing costs nearly $20 (alot in this economy) and you get to use it for a whopping 5 days before the stench is so bad it could knock you over?!
Also, after just 3 days of use by one single child, my 3 year old daughter, there is a yellow stained ring around the inner seam of the seat.

There are way better options out there I'm sure. There's got to be. My advice is to forfeit the padded seat ones in favor of something that can be sanitized so it won't stink. They have to get used to a hard seat eventually right? Or else you'd never be able to take them anywhere with public restrooms.

Baby Mum-mums: Review

Not really "Pancakes" but according to my then-2 1/2-year-old they are! When my baby boy was learning to self-feed I saw some Baby Mum-mums in the store and decided to try them. They are Gluten-free, Egg-free, and Peanut-free for peace of mind. They have no artificial colors or flavors, and they are wrapped by twos for convenience! This means you can grab one out of the box and toss it in the diaper bag- no mess, no prep.
Mum-mum Original
My son loved them! So did his big sister! She asked what it was called and I told her they are "rice rusks" but she couldn't pronounce rusks so I called them baby ricecakes. She had never heard of a ricecake though and so they became the only kind of cake she knew at the time: pancake! Lol!
Mum-mum Vegetable
They come in Original, Vegetable, and Organic. In the US, you can buy them at places like WalMart and Target. They are available in Australia, America, and Europe. Mum-mums are easy for small hands to hold and dissolve easily. My kids have tried the Original and Vegetable flavors and loved both. I can't find the Organic ones anywhere here.
