The Mombo Nursing Pillow

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort and Harmony for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you looking for a new nursing pillow? The Mombo may be the perfect pillow for you. I used a nursing pillow for so many things, and I will be really honest-- I even use one now that I am done nursing. A great nursing pillow, like the Mombo can be used to support the baby while breastfeeding. This puts the baby in an elevated position, so that he/ she is a little "up" more. It also gives your arms a little break. We also used our nursing pillow for assisting in letting younger siblings in holding the baby, as well as bottle feedings. The c-shape conveniently fits around your waist, making it comfortable for you and the baby!

Having a nursing pillow is so helpful and useful, especially if you are breastfeeding. I found it to be a lifesaver after my c-section with my children. We love this soft design of their deluxe pillow.
And when your baby gets a little older, it makes a great support pillow! We love that The Mombo comes with a soothing vibration insert! 

 The Mombo is available at Toys R Us (and Babies R Us). The Mombo is from Comfort & Harmony, which supplies some amazing products such as portable swings and soothing rockers for babies!

mn8 for Period Pain

Do you ever have those situations where someone is telling you how wonderful something is, and you should try it . . . and you are thinking, "Yeah, right! Like that could really work!" I have to say when I started looking into mn8 to review, I was VERY skeptical. An object that eliminates period pain . . . by attaching it to your underwear????



The mn8 is a magnetic device that you attach to the upper part of the front of your underwear right before your period. You then wear it throughout your period to eliminate or reduce your period pain. And I know what you are thinking . . . "Yeah, right!"


So, here is the truth. I used it last month during my regular cycle. I have had VERY intense cramps and pain during my period, to the point that the doctor has suggested taking birth control pills in order to alleviate the pain and other symptoms I have been having (dizziness, lightheadedness, etc). This is the strange thing . . . IT WORKS. And I mean it REALLY WORKS! I have no idea HOW it works, I do not know why it works . . . but my pain was greatly reduced to almost nothing. My dizziness was eliminated, and in general it was not the normal horrific experience it has been since having my third child. I have tried hormone creams, hormone over-the-counter supplements, and just a ton of things-- none of them worked. But the mn8-- it did!!! This allowed me to stop taking needless supplements!!!


I read the testimonies online before getting my own mn8 and was very skeptical that actual people could have those kinds of results, but I am a 100% believer now! I am going to wear my mn8 every month!!!

Citrus Lane April 2013 Review

The links in this post are referral links and MamaBreak may receive a credit for their use. 

Hello, Mamas!
Well, I think we FINALLY received ALL of our Citrus Lane boxes, but it was well worth the wait! In case you do not know, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box service. Prices normally at $25 a box, you can use this LINK (CLICK HERE), and you should get $10 off of your subscription. Ordering more than one month? Click on the LINK (CLICK HERE) Use code BREAK10 to save 10% off. If this is your first box FIRSTBOX will take 50% off of your first box!

If this is your first review of a subscription box, please let us clarify our valuing system. We generally use Amazon prices. We find this is the easiest and most fair way of applying value. In that, it is according to the Amazon price we find at the time of our post. If an Amazon price cannot be obtained, we attempt to find the best web price available.

On to the boxes. We have tried to get a sampling of all of the boxes available this month, so we hope we have a representation of what everyone got. If not, we are always happy to add to our post what others may have received.

Zaggora Pants to Sweat the Weight Off!

When I first heard about Zaggora, I have to tell you-- I did not know what to think. Clothing that can help you to lose weight??? Really?? REALLY!!!!



I was so excited to try out Zaggora when working out, because every little bit helps! The outside of the pants are not much different than most work out clothes. They do not look really out of the ordinary.


That is until you can actually feel them. The inside is an almost cushioned fabric and when you put on the pants, it is very similar to putting on a surfing or scuba suit.


Do they work? Holy cow! They DO!!!! I put them on, and they do cause me to sweat more and feel like I have worked out my legs, thighs, and even stomach a little more! They are now my go to pants when I work out!

You can check out their full line of athletic gear at: http://zaggora.com/

SodaStream Review and Giveaway

We love our original SodaStream that we have had for about 6 months, and were thrilled to be offered a review of the new "Genesis" SodaStream.

What makes this SodaStream different? It dones with 2 bottles rather than 1 (which I love). I cannot even tell you how much easier this makes it, especially with a family of 5! It also has a sleeker design than our original SodaStream, so it fits in more with our new kitchen appliances.


We really liked this sampler set they included with the SodaStream! What a great way to try a TON of flavors.

By and far, our favorite is the Grapefruit soda! We love that the soda does not contain high fructose corn syrup, making it just a little healthier than traditional soda. It also saves money because you can make your own soda at home! My kids love using the SodaStream, and that is how easy it is to make. My 9 year old has already mastered making her own soda.

As a part of our healthy journey, soda may not seem the perfect fit, but we think it is a much better choice than traditional soda. You can also buy flavors called "my water" which is like drinking soda, but with just a touch of flavor. They also now have Crystal Light flavors, so there are many healthier options for soda drinking! When we are craving and absolutely MUST have soda, we have started turning to the SodaStream rather than regular soda!

You can find all of the SodaStream models and flavors at: http://www.sodastreamusa.com/

Navitas Naturals for Snacks!

As you know, I am on a journey to be healthier, and I will tell you my weakness is CHOCOLATE!! I LOVE chocolate, but hate all the calories! Chocolate is my go to food for stress, and I cannot imagine my life without it.
I am so happy I got to review for Navitas Naturals, because I found a way to incorporate chocolate into my new healthy eating plans! Healthy chocolate??? YES!!!!!!



These are Navitas Naturals Organic Sweet Raw Cacao Nibs. I am not crazy about the 6 grams of saturated fat that they have, but that is for a serving size of 1 oz, which is NOT how much I eat. I eat about this much, when I start to have a craving for chocolate.
It is enough for my craving to be taken care of, and is a nice little mid-day treat! 1 ounce also has 5 grams of fiber, so they are much healthier than just eating an entire chocolate bar (with 150 calories for 1 oz). Our measurement should that we eat about .05 ounces per serving rather than a full ounce.

We also are enjoying these Cacao Goji Superfood as a snack. We eat one little "bar" to give us energy and sugar when we need it. Although there are 120 calories and 53 fat calories, that is for a considerable amount more than 1 bar (in our measurement, a serving is about 2 bars).

While these would not be good to replace a meal, as a small snack in between meals, it is a great way to satisfy "sweet" craving!!

Juil Review: Connecting Me to the Earth

I love shoes, and I especially love shoes that are both stylish and comfortable! I was thrilled to try out a pair of Juil shoes, sent to me for free by Juil to review here, and see for myself how truly wonderful they are!



I tried out the Holland shoe, which is a clog shoe. I chose this style because, as you can see, it is still VERY cold here in ND. I am VERY glad I did because shortly after I received the shoes, I started to experience a lot of foot pain. Years ago, I had surgery on my left foot. I am extremely flat footed and had a bunion-like surgery on that foot. Well, I got married, kids came along, and I lost track of time-- never getting the surgery done on the right food. When they x-rayed my foot, it was clear the main bone near my big toe had slipped out of place, meaning I would need to have surgery again. I am a busy, working mom-- having surgery right then was NOT an option, so I was advised to wear a pair of shoes with a sturdy sole-- "just like those," the doctor said. I was, of course, wearing my Juil shoes!


Juil shoes contain copper in their soles, which is both on the bottom of the shoe, as well as in the shoe at the heel and at the toes.

My Holland shoes are perfect and I actually do not have foot pain when I wear them (as I do with almost all of my other shoes). They are easy to put on and take off, and fit wonderfully! On top of all of that, they are actually quite stylish and can be worn with jeans or dress slacks!

If you are looking for a comfortable, stylish pair of shoes, then you need to look into Juil! The bet part? They are having an Earth Day Sale right now with sales up to 50% off!!!!

Nature Bright for Light Therapy

Who would have thought that in the middle of April I would be talking about light therapy? I want to share with you my front and back yard.


It seems that winter will NEVER end, and I can tell you that the lack of sunshine and warmth has greatly impacted my mental and physical health. I am more tired, crabbier, and NEED spring-- NOW! Such a long time with lack of sunshine and warmth can often lead to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). From living in such a cold place, I can tell you that SAD is VERY real We have now had winter for 6 months, which is a LONG time to not be outside!

I had read a lot about light therapy, and am thrilled to bring you a review of the NatureBrite SunTouch Plus Light and Ion Therapy Lamp.


This is a wonderfully sized lamp that you can turn on and use while doing other activities. You can have it on in your office, whie watching television, any of your daily activities-- as long as you are within 18 inches of the light. I have been turning mine on while blogging for 30 minutes each day, and I cannot even begin to describe the difference it has made. I am happier and have more energy.

After such a LONG winter, I think this light should be a standard in all homes in the upper midwest. It has been a while since we have been able to enjoy the sunlight, and your body need the sunlight to properly function. This light allows you to get the benefits of the sun, even in the cold, winter months. It has time settings and an Ion Therapy, which you can turn off an on.

Mmmm Monday: White Lasagne

So I really think it's a good thing I don't come up with any of these recipes. I find them from friends who cook well or bloggers or good ole allrecipes.com.  I love trying new recipes, but I rarely find ones that I LOVE. The ones my family loves, I feel comfortable sharing on the blog.

My confession:  Yesterday, I MESSED UP hard boiled eggs.  Our thrifty lunch of egg salad on toasted (aka: OLD) bread turned into....re-doing the eggs, peeling warm eggs (it takes FOREVER) and then realizing the yolks STILL weren't cooked enough.  EW.  Now, We have a dozen hard boiled egg whites--for Cobb salad tomorrow, I guess!?  YIKES! Bad day!

Photo from Recipecan.com


With that said, this recipe is NOT from me!  My friend Katie made this awesome White Lasagne. She got her recipe from a site called recipecan.  I've made this before and loved it.  We will make it this week too.  I love using the veggies I have available and that my family loves. A flexible recipe makes mama happy!  Thanks to recipecan.com for feeding my family this week!

White Vegetable Lasagne

Ingredients
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 bag (8 oz) froze spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 container (32 oz) part-skim ricotta
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup low fat milk
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 log (10.5 oz) goat cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 box whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Directions
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cook noodles according to package.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in zucchini and peppers and cook until the zucchini are soft (about 5 minutes). Stir in spinach and garlic and cook for an additional minute. Remove from heat.
  • Mix ricotta, basil, oregano, thyme, salt and egg in a bowl.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook one minute. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and whisk in Parmesan, goat cheese, and salt. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • In a 13×9 pan, layer 4 noodles, half of the ricotta mix, half of the veggies mix, half of the goat cheese sauce and half of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat for a second layer. Place the remaining noodles on top and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for 45 minutes.


Drink Chia has a larger bottle!

I was speaking with someone yesterday and told them I had given up Pepsi. She was shocked and said she just could not do it. I never thought I would be able to do it, and I will tell you, I have not done it on my own.
A few months ago, I talked about Drink Chia, and this has been my "go to" product for giving up soda. I do not drink coffee often, so I would have a soda every morning to help "wake me up." Now, instead of reaching for a soda, I reach for a Drink Chia. Drink Chia used to come in just an 8 oz bottle, but I am loving this larger version in 10 ounces!




It gives me the energy boost I need in the morning! As an added "perk" I have also noticed my nails are growing stronger and healthier. Usually I have very fragile and weak nails, but they are a decent length now, and the only thing I have changed thus far is drinking more Drink Chia.


I found it on sale at Lucky Vitamin, and ordered 2 more 12 packs! It is not a HUGE discount ($1.00 off a bottle), but it was enough to make me buy a couple of 12 packs. I drink about 2-3 bottles a day because I LOVE the taste!

Starting my Journey with Journey Gym

Well, my Journey Gym arrived and today I start Day 1! I am doing a 5 minute workout, which is just a start on my path to getting fitter and getting healthier! As you may remember, I have signed up to review journey gym for the next 70 days! That is 70 days to break my old (very bad) exercise habits and form new ones!

You can follow my entire journey under the tab "Getting Healthier Journey". 



This is what the system looks like folded up. You can see that it is fairly compact, so even if you have a small living area, this would easily fit into almost any space. 


Once you unfold it to work out, it lies flat and is fairly easy to set up and to use. It was lightweight enough that I could easily bring it to my office, or even on while traveling.

This is a great value for the box at only $18/ month, especially when you can see before you order! I am sure we will be placing another order soon!

Citrus Lane April 2013 Big Boy Box Review

My 3 year old received these items from his Citrus Lane box. I have to say I am more thrilled with my little man's box for a 5 month old, but the items are a good value for the cost.

Melissa and Doug paint with water, Amazon price 5.60
Oogaa silicon mat, Amazon price $8.99
Plum mash ups for kids, web value $1.85 ( ours expires May 2013 :(
Honest Shampoo, web value 9.95
Keepa, drink holder, web value $5.99

TOTAL:  $32.38.  Since they cost $25 per month, this is still a good deal!  We love that we got a full sized Honest Company product and the fun soft silicon mat!

Order yours for May before they sell out (like this month did)!!!! CLICK HERE to order and your FIRST box will be $10 off!!! or for a limited time use the code FIRSTBOX and get 1/2 off of your first box!!!
