Freshly Picked Moccasin Giveaway

When your boys are as rough and tough as mine, you like to stick with brands that can keep up in their quality. Once Max outgrew his first two pairs of Freshly Picked moccasins I knew he would love another pair for this fall season. My boys feet and bodies grow at a rate of a snail, so Max actually wore his first pair of moccasins for an entire year (and as you can see from the picture below, they still have a lot more life left in them).  Freshly Picked moccasins worked amazing as a first shoe when Max was taking his first steps and are still my favorite as he explores the world around him.

 

We have Baby #3 on the way and I love that his old camouflage pair can be worn for either a boy or a girl. Since the first pair was of such great quality, it's something that can easily be handed down to the next child. Freshly Picked moccasins are our favorite because:

1. You do not need to put socks on their feet when wearing them, which for me is one less thing to worry about. 
2. They fit true to size and are easy to put on. Freshly Picked has a very easy to follow sizing chart so it is easy to find your child's right size online. Max used to wear a 3 and now he is in a size 4.
3. The quality and customer service cannot be beat. I love ordering online and with that I need quick customer service and Freshly Picked does not disappoint. I wish that more companies had the same practice of delivering both quality and service.

If you are looking for your baby's first shoe or are looking for a practical everyday shoe for an experienced walker (like Max) then I would highly recommend investing in a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins. I ordered Max a pair of For the Win moccasins, part of their Lyn-Z Pastrana collection. I love that they are so unique and not something you can find anywhere else. As soon as I showed Max his new shoes he screeched, "Wow, Mom!" and begged for me to put them on him. I think we might need to get big brother a pair too because he was pretty excited that Max had cool new moccasins. 

Max just started wearing his new pair of moccasins and I can't wait to see his little imprints on the bottoms. It is hard as a parent to see your little baby grow up but it is the little things, like the stories his shoes could tell that I will cherish forever. 

I partnered up with Freshly Picked to giveaway a pair of their soft soled moccasins to one of you. I know that once your little one puts on a pair of these moccasins, you too will fall in love with them for the same reasons we did.  Please head over to my Instagram to enter HERE. The winner cannot have won any other Freshly Picket giveaway (including a Freshly Picked moccasin) within the last 60 days. You must live in the U.S. to enter.

All opinions are my own. I was given a pair of moccasins in exchange for my own review and opinion. No other compensation was given.

lansinoh review and giveaway.

There are a few companies in which I have trusted for a few years now when it comes to being a mom. Lansinoh is one of those brands which I have always trusted and used. When I first became a momma and was nursing Calvin it was their Lanolin cream and soothies that saved me during some awfully painful nights. 

I have been using Lansinoh's Breastmilk Storage Bags for almost 3 years now. I have never had a leak with them and I love how there is space to write the date, ounces, and the double seal. Even though I am starting to wean Max I am still in need of Lansinoh's products since (as you all know) I have a huge oversupply. 

I have used their breast pads for a year when I was nursing Calvin but this past year went for a generic brand and even tried reusable nursing pads. With both I was disappointed with how quickly they became moist. I was surprised and thankful to have tried their new Ultimate Protection Nursing Pads. They are curved and have a sticky back that helps them to stay in place while I go about my day. I love how they are thin but still help me with controlling my leaks--keeping me dry. Another great feature is the texture: they are extremely soft. When you are first beginning your nursing journey this is so helpful to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Any mom who has a good milk supply knows how essential this is in a nursing pad. 

Lansinoh also sent me their Lansinoh Momma Bottle with Natural Wave. As some of you may know, both of my boys never took a bottle. I am a stay-at-home mom so this was never really an issue 99% of the time. Max just turned one so I feel like it is a little late to try to get him to take a bottle but I wanted to see what he would do with these ones. I put water in the bottle for Max (Why waste any precious milk knowing his history with bottles?). Max actually took three sucks from the bottle but then was fascinated with the nipple part and thought it was a toy (typical 1 year old).

I wish I tried these when he was a newborn because I truly loved everything about this bottle. The nipple is extremely soft and flexible which would make it very easy for a baby to go from nursing to taking a bottle. The bottle is not bulky at all, making it perfect for storage or packed in a diaper bag and there are only three parts (nipple, bottle, and cap). My suggestion for those of you who breastfeed: introduce a bottle very early on, like 4 weeks. One bottle a day can help your baby be okay with both nursing and taking a bottle. A lot of people are afraid of nipple confusion but if you are only introducing a bottle once or a few times a day I think you would have better luck than me on having a flexible baby, eating-wise.

Even if your baby is not breastfed or drinking breast milk, this bottle would be great for formula as well. It is compact, has different flow nipples to grow with baby, and has clearly marked ounce markers. 

Lansinoh is teaming up with me to give one of your little ones a Natural Wave bottle. Please comment below with one of your favorite activities to do with your little one and your email address AND like them on Facebook. . The winner will be announced on Thursday, December 10th. May the odds be ever in your favor ;)

Freshly Picked Moccasins Review and Giveaway

I first heard about Freshly Picked moccasins during an episode of Shark Tank. I was amazed at how Susan's company was doing so well and to hear how many moms were buying these soft soled moccasins for their babies and toddlers. After following them on Instagram for a couple of years now and hearing about so many moms who loved these shoes, I knew I wanted to try some out for my sweet Max. 

Max has just begun to walk (insert ugly mom tears) and since he is such a little guy it is important to me that he has good balance and a shoe that stays on his little feet. I am able to put these moccasins easily on him and have not had to worry about them falling off when he is walking or crawling. But by far my favorite feature of these shoes is that the ankle comes up a little high. Most shoes I have tried on him are way too low and as a result he is able to pull them off easily. These moccasins help him to be able to walk with ease since they are not bulky and protect his feet. 

I love high quality and am not one to get something for my boys that I know won't last since they go at life with so much energy and speed. The quality and workmanship of these moccasins are amazing and worth every penny. They truly form to your child's feet and look super cute at the same time. I chose green camo because they were versatile in color and looked like a little manly shoe. I was surprised that they were suede even though it does say that in the description (I obviously didn't pay close attention) but am pleasantly surprised how much I like the suede.

Freshly Picked is a company that you can rely on to have amazing customer service, durability, fashion, and professionalism. I have teamed up with them so that one of you can win a free pair of moccasins for your little one. I hope that you will fall in love with this brand as much as I have.

Head on over to my Instagram to get all the details. The giveaway will go from November 30th- December 7th at 10:00PM PST. The winner will be announced on December 8th!
