Obseussed - Bumkins Super Bibs

Today you are you, that is truer than true
There is no one alive, who is youer than you.

I admit I've been bitten by the Dr Seuss bug. And to my delight my husband shares my crazy obsession. Such fans are we that we have a lot of Dr Seuss merchandise for moms and babies on our webstore and our son has used them all.
Its hard to pick a favorite from them all, but one of the products I've used a lot is the Bumkins superbib. Made of a waterproof fabric, this bib can just be easily wiped clean, resists odors and stains. Mine still looks as good as new. It is extremely easy to wash and I usually toss it into the washing machine after a couple of uses. The bib is very soft, yet durable and very light. Easy to store and carry along in a diaper bag. The velcro at the neck is adjustable and doesn't fray. I have managed to make use of this bib for the last 10 months, ever since my son was 4 months old. It has a catch all pocket that is well designed and roomy. It stays open unlike many other bibs and saves many a spill. The selling point is that the bib is PVC free, lead free, BPA free, phthalates free and vinyl free which is of utmost importance owing to the fact that invariably the bib will find its way into the little one's mouth more often than not. This bib is imported from Bumkins USA. Makes a great gift for a baby too!

So it's time for the first birthday and preparations are in full swing. Ofcourse the theme is Dr Seuss's The Cat in the Hat and ofcourse we are super excited. Our son.....he hasn't a clue, though he does love his Dr Seuss books. His 1st birthday is really a party to satisfy the child inside us all. My OCD has taken over completely and the DIY skills are being put to test. Google and pinterest have become my best buddies. I've been burning the midnight oil every night to complete all the preparations.
I will blog about the preparations in details after the birthday,  until then' Think and wonder, and wonder and think!'

Barnyard Theme 2nd Birthday

Our son turned 2 last month and we decided to throw a Barnyard theme birthday party for him. After the Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party last year, this year we chose a theme he could relate to and enjoy. He can now recognize all farm animals and the sounds they make and Old MacDonald is one of his favourite nursery rhymes. It took weeks and weeks of preparations and that meant burning the midnight oil once again for us working parents, and a sabbatical for me from my blog for over 3 months. Here is all that we did and more.

Were made on photoshop by my husband and were sent out via email and whats app. We used the same invitations as reminders a week before the party for last minute rsvps.

Birthday Boy:
Ronav was dressed in denim overalls and a checked shirt to resemble a farmer in the barn, Mom and dad played their part too, wearing checked shirts and denims.

Go Green with Snappi Diaper Fasteners!

If you're planning to go the cloth diaper route, Snappis are a must have! Made in South Africa, they are a great substitute for diaper pins and so much safer too. I cannot imagine trying to fumble around with safety pins while the baby is squirming.I love using my Snappi! This product makes using prefolds almost as easy as using disposables. In fact, they are so easy to use even daddy has figured them out! You can fasten the diaper with just one hand and they really stay. With snappis, I can easily close prefolds, flats, fitted flats, and non-snap fitteds! There's no metal and no chance of poking the baby. They are stretchy, reusable, and extremely durable. I've even washed a Snappi on accident and it was still perfect. The composition is 100% polyurethane ( thus safe for the baby). A single snappi can last you the life of diapering your child (as long as you don't lose it!). And to add to a list of pros, they come in a variety of boy, girl and neutral colors. Also, th…

Dr Seuss themed 1st Birthday!

It seems like yesterday that we brought our son Ronav home from the hospital, but a year has just flown by and all that we are left with are memories and lots of photos!
Since my husband and I are huge Dr Seuss fans, we decided to throw Ronav a themed birthday party to satisfy the child within us. The planning and execution took 2 months of burning the midnight oil as that was the only time we would get after putting Ronav to bed. All the decorations were hand made by us, only the balloons were outsourced. Here's how we did it.
The Invitations: Were sent via what's app and email 3 weeks before the party and was created on photoshop.

Reminders:  Were sent out 4 days before the party to get a better idea of the RSVPs. 

Thing 1 :
Ronav was Thing 1. We customized a T-shirt for him which read "Thing 1".

Mom & Dad of Thing 1 :
Mommy and Daddy got customized T-shirts too. They read "Mom of Thing 1" and "Dad of Thing 1".
