We just finished our school year here and I am searching high and low for activities to keep both of my boys entertained this summer…thank goodness for Pinterest, right?! Recently, we made straw rockets and my boys had a blast :). It’s taking the fun of shooting the wrappers off your straws at restaurants and repeating the fun over and over again at home.

When my 4 year old was born, the nursing pillows were just starting to become popular with new moms, though I never got one due to expense while living on a student budget. I never realized how versatile those pillows could be from nursing to tummy time to a llittle lounge pillow for baby. It seems like a nursing pillow would be really nice to use because of it's curved shape...ideally it stays in place better than just a regular pillow, right?
Mombo is a nursing pillow with even more to love. One side of the pillow is firm, but the other side is soft, so mom and baby can have their choice of firm support while nursing, or soft comfort while resting and playing. This design is called Firm2Soft™. Every mom can customize their Mombo pillow with a variety of slip covers, and the pillow comes in Standard, Deluxe or Nude.
Also, Mombo is the only pillow with a vibration feature to soothe baby while lounging. Even a bottle fed baby can benefit from a Mombo pillow while eating or playing.
Mombo pillows are sold at Toys R Us and Babies R Us, as well as other Mombo products. You can like Comfort & Harmony on Facebook, as well as Comfort & Harmony on Twitter (@ComfortHarmony) where you can learn more about their products.
Have you used a nursing pillow? What was your experience? Would you recommend them to a new mom? Is it worth the cost/investment?

All I had to do was level the cinder blocks with the holes facing up. It's on a slope so I cut "steps" out of the slope for the blocks. Then I put tulip bulbs in the holes and filled them with dirt. Personally, I think this is a million times better than staring at cinder blocks full of spiders or something gross like that :). And, it keeps our puppy from escaping under the fence. Win!

Do you ever set your kids loose on Pinterest? Sometimes, I open the “kids crafts” board and let my boys pick what project they would like to do that day. One day, my 4 year old saw this train and wanted, so desperately, to make a train of his own. I don’t tend to collect toilet paper rolls, but I had a cardboard box, so we set off to make a train of our very own…
