Review of Nuby's Whale Pail Scooper & Splish Splash Cups!

DISCLAIMER: I received a Nuby Whale Pail and a Nuby Splish Splash Stacking Cups from Nuby USA in exchange for my own and honest opinion which may differ from yours. No compensation was received.

Lil Poppyseed always love splashing water and playing with bath toys while bathing. He has a bunch of bath toys which always keep him busy and laughing. He got very excited when he received the Nuby Splish Splash Stacking Cups and Whale Pail to add to his colorful and fun collection.

The Nuby Splish Splash Stacking Cups package comes with 5 adorable cups of different sizes to help babies learn coordination and development through stacking. As the cups are filled, they can watch water drain out from beneath. This product is BPA-free, good for babies 9 months + exceeds all government safety and regulations and standards.

Lil Poppyseed was instantly drawn to the stacking cups because they are so colorful and he enjoyed watching the waterfall. I personally prefer these stacking cups over many others of Lil Poppyseed’s bath toys because of the drainage underneath each cup. One of the biggest problem we face with his bath toys is mold. Many of lil Poppyseed’s bath toys contain a little hole underneath which sucks in water and form mold overtime. I, then, would have to painfully discard some of his favorite bath toys. 

After all the fun, the Nuby Whale Pail Scooper came in handy because I can quickly scoop up all his bath toys in the tub. Lil Poppyseed tried scooping too, but at 8 months of age, he is still too young to catch any of the bath toys into the whale’s big mouth. It definitely does help promote hands/eye coordination. Afterwards, I can hook the Nuby Whale Pail against the bathroom wall to allow water to drain out of the many built in holes in its belly and toys to air dry.


Overall, I really like the two because both products prevent water from collecting in the toys for mold to form. For more information, visit

How to Get Breastpumps Covered By Insurance!

Thanks to Obamacare, breastfeeding moms can get pricey breastpumps and visits to lactation consultants covered by their insurance. The government does not bear the costs of providing breast pumps. Instead, insurers will have to pay for the new benefit.
Though the Affordable Care Act was passed months ago, I still come across many breastfeeding new mommies who are unaware of this wonderful benefit. Those who did know didn't know where to start or who to go, and more importantly that the insurance companies will provide coverage only if the breastpump is purchased directly from a medical supply company, such as Edgepark Medical Supply. Call your insurance company to find a list of medical supply companies. I was insured by Blue Cross Blue Shield and got a Medela Pump In Style Breastpump (ARV $300) from this Edgepark Medical.

NOTE: Do not purchase from retailers such as Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby etc., as the most insurance companies will not cover if purchased through them.

Please pass this news onto other new mommies!

Review & Giveaway of the Ingenuity Sahara Burst Automatic Bouncer (ARV $49.99)!

Disclaimer: LilyRoseBee received an Ingenuity Sahara Burst bouncer free of charge from KidsII in exchange for my own and honest opinion.

Since 6 months of age, little Poppyseed’s been experiencing a bad case of separation anxiety. The minute I put him down in his playarea, he would immediately wail until I give into holding him again. I would put all kinds of toys in his playarea to keep occupied while reassuring him that I would immediately return. Sometimes I even sneak out when his back is turned to me, but lil Poppyseed was always too quick and smart. I could never escape far enough. He even needs to be held in order to sleep throughout the night.
My hubby and I thought lil Poppyseed’s separation anxiety was only temporary so we gave in each time. We would hold him or babywear him while we try to cook or clean. But now at 8 months of age and at a whopping 20lbs, he’s gotten WAY too heavy to be carried around. Nothing ever gets done in the house.
So I was super excited when I received the Ingenuity Sahara Burst automatic bouncer from KidsII to test because we were desperate to give anything a try. The bouncer is made of super soft plush fabric which is great for babies’ skin because often times they love to roll. It also comes with a headrest to keep babies’ wilting head upright and a 3-point safety harness to protect them from falling off. The wide selection of melodies is soothing and the hanging elephants is fun for kicking. The design is absolutely adorable and easy to assemble. Operates on three C batteries.
