Mompact teaching kids independence

Encourage Independence In Your Children

These are some of my very favorite products – and I love that this giveaway package is all centered around helping kids learn new skills, gain confidence, and become more independent. And really, isn’t that the goal? We love that our kids need us now, but we want to raise them to be strong individuals who are ready to tackle all the challenges in life and reach for success. Providing them with products that make it easier for them to do daily tasks without your help gives them a big boost of self confidence when they accomplish things on their own. And that’s one of the best things to see.

Take a Peak at the awesome products one winner will take home:


The Aqueduck

This is a super clever little gadget that attaches easily to any type of bathroom or kitchen faucet, and streams the water in a different way to help little hands reach it so that they can wash up on their own. You can learn more about the Aqueduck Faucet Extender from some of the other moms who have used it too:

learn to feed yourselfBaby Dipper Feeding Set

This little set features a totally innovative bowl that angles to make it much easier for little ones to eat on their own. When they are a baby, the triangular slanted shape makes it perfect for one-handed feeding times, and as kiddos grow, it’s an amazing starter dish. It’s BPA free {very important to me} with a skid-proof bottom, and smartly designed utensils. Love it. Learn more about the Baby Dipper Feeding Set from these two mommas who are both big fans:

Antsy Pants cloth diapers

Antsy Pants: The best cloth diapers

We are just now starting on the potty training journey, so I haven’t tried these out yet – But I have been hearing some great feedback from the other moms in the group who are using them. And, can I just say – these are stinkin’ adorable! Seriously – almost too cute to cover up with pants, which would make them a really great option around here in the summer time. But I’ll let the moms who have used Antsy Pants Pull-Up Cloth Diapers in their homes give you some tips:

Thumbuddy to Love

This is a very sweet little product helps kids learn to stop thumb sucking in a way that’s fun, gentle, and positive. You can get the Ballerina version shown above, or a Fireman story and plush character, and they are seriously adorable. Read stories from a couple other moms who used this –  Stop Thumb Sucking with Thumbuddy To Love – gift set to help their kiddos learn better habits…

Mess-Free Potty Training Solution: Tidy Tots! #Mompact

Finally, a mess-free solution to potty training! Tidy Tots are a disposable plastic liner that you add right into almost any size or shape of potty chair, then place the included absorbent pad right into the liner.

A mess-free solution to potty training!

Potty Liner for Mess-Free Potty Training

We are just getting started with potty training… Abby is ready, but I’ve been so busy, I haven’t been able to give this new challenge as much focus as I should. One of our favorite gifts as part of the Munchkin Bunch was a brand new super-cool potty chair a couple months ago, and Abby loves to sit on her chair while mommy gets ready for the day. I just recently started sitting her ON the potty every couple of hours, trying to get her to catch on to the idea of what it’s really for – no luck yet. But I can tell ya I was SUPER excited to learn about these Tidy Tots liners, and will definitely be giving them a try. Mommy’s favorite words are “no messes!”

Tidy Tots is a hot new must-have for busy moms!

As you can see, these mess-free potty liners are getting a lot of attention! And they deserve it, since they are another super smart solution, invented by a busy mom just like us. She saw a yucky challenge, and thought, “There must be a better way?” Luckily for us she figured out this simple solution, saving the rest of us lots of big messes to clean up! You can read more over on Mallery’s Deals – She shows the Tidy Tot in action, and shares some really helpful feedback that she got from the women in her mom group that will help you figure out if these are the right fit for you!

Connecting Brands & Bloggers at Reviewer’s Retreat #RevRet12

Most of you guys know by now that I’m going to be attending Reviewer’s Retreat in just a couple more weeks. Well, not just attending – I’ll also be speaking at the event! I’m going to be presenting with a couple of other amazing social media gals, teaching our best tips on growing your audience using social media, email newsletters, giveaway events, and more. I’m pretty excited to meet some new people, share some helpful info, and get to see some of my favorite blogging friends again too!

Reviewer's Retreat

“Position yourself as a center of influence – the one who knows the movers and shakers. People will respond to that, and you’ll soon become what you project.” – Bob Burg

If you’re going to be at Reviewer’s Retreat too, I’d LOVE to love to connect with you there. I’ll be speaking on Monday, June 4th, at 10:30, presenting the Undergraduate session titled Growing Your Audience. {If you haven’t signed up for that session yet, you can visit the site to build your schedule.} And, I’m also going to be helping out during the Sponsor Speedway portion of the event, meeting with bloggers at the Mompact table. The first speedway is during my presentation, but I’ll be at the table during the second one, later in the afternoon.

What is the Sponsor Speedway?

This is a bit of time set aside for bloggers and brands to connect with each other. Bloggers will get to take a seat, about 5-6 at a time, with each brand. You’ll get a little less than 10 minutes to quickly introduce yourself to the brand, exchange business cards, and hopefully make a totally charming first impression. Then your group will move on to the next table, until everyone has had a chance to connect. There will be some really great brands – from big names like Kia and Pampers, to fun brands like Mompact and Uncommon Goods. At Mompact, I’ll be looking for some really passionate and talented new reviewer’s to join our team this year – so don’t forget to stop by and get me one of your card. {Need a card with a totally memorable design to catch all of these great brand’s attention? Check out my very favorite blogging business card company to find some awesome inspiration.} I’ll also have some actual products on hand, if you’re interested in taking something home with you to review on your site later.

Mompact Logo

“Networking is simply the cultivating of mutually beneficial, give and take, win-win relationships. It works best, however, when emphasizing the ‘give’ part.” – Bob Burg

About Mompact… “It’s time for moms to support other moms in business the way we do in motherhood. The compassion we feel when we meet a mom in need of encouraging words at the check out line, or struggling to quiet a fussy toddler at a restaurant, is the same kind of compassion and connection moms have in business. We get what the other mom is going through: how she has to juggle work and family, sacrifice financially, and learn along the way. We’re here to provide a platform for that support.”
