Baby Swags is giving away Psi Bands – they help relieve nausea


Psi Bands are stylish acupressure wrist band used to relieve nausea commonly caused by pregnancy, as well as travel and medical procedures. Psi Bands (pronounced “sigh bands”) were conceived by two girlfriends who discovered the positive effects of using wrist acupressure to alleviate the severe morning sickness they suffered during each of their pregnancies. Unsatisfied with existing products on the market, they decided to create something both functional and fashionable.

Though acupressure bands have been used to relieve nausea for years, there are three main attributes unique to Psi Bands:
1) These are the only bands to be fully adjustable – both around the wrist and at the acupressure point.
2) Psi Bands are waterproof and can be worn in the shower, pool, ocean, etc.
3) They are specifically designed with fashion in mind – Psi Bands are available in five different colors and designs.

To enter to win, all you have to do is head over to Baby Swags Blog and follow the entry directions! You will be able to select your color/style too if you win!

On Friday I received a wonderful package containing a great selection of Hanes products.  Now I know from shopping for three children, Hanes makes great underwear, socks, under shirts and I remember awhile back buying sweat shirts,  but that is all I pretty much knew of them.  I was so excited to see that they have a nice sized clothing line as well.  There is stuff for anyone, any size, any age.  Ok, so back to my package of clothing.  My youngest who is 3 spotted her goodies which included Tinker Bell underwear, which she was ever so thrilled with along with some socks, two shirts and a matching skort.  Of course she tried everything on, one right after the other and instantly formed her favorite, even though I loved them all on her, she is her own self and has already developed her own sense of style.  She particularly loved the Monkey Tee and Tinkerbell Underwear.

  When my son, who is almost 7 heard the commotion, he came in to see what he can score.  He was thrilled to find new socks, new underwear, a zippered hooded sweatshirt (in red…which he happens to be playing on the Red Sox in this seasons little league, so it was as if it was meant to be!), a long shirt tee, short shirt tee and sweatshirt.  He tried everything on and was really happy, as much as a boy could be, about his new clothes.  The one thing I noticed, he didn’t really ever take off that red zippered hooded sweat shirt, which may warrant a good washing by now!

 My oldest, being a girl, age 9, going on 19 loved to see her new tees.  She wore one yesterday and loved it because it was a longer style; everything according to her style needs to be long and semi-fitted.

 For me, as a mom, actually getting to see at first hand the quality and style of the clothing is what impressed me the most.  They were able to hold up well with three kids, different ages, different sizes, different styles.  That right there is a huge task to tackle.  We all really enjoyed our Hanes clothing and you can to by simply going to and checking out the different links for girls and boys.  (And, if you have time, find a few things for yourself!)  One big contributing factor for our family is cost of clothing and I was happy to see that Hanes was priced for perfection!  With Hanes, in my opinion, you just can’t go wrong.  Style + cost + quality = One happy mom!

 When you go to the website, be sure to check out the articles posted.  You will find some really good tips on getting your children involved in physical fitness and provide them basic fundamentals for making healthy life style choices.  

Kathy Kaehler, expert fitness trainer stated,

“Lack of time is one of the biggest reasons that people, especially children, don’t exercise regularly; between school and extra-curricular activities, the days sometimes don’t feel long enough! So, when there isn’t enough time for a full work out, do a little at a time. Shorter periods of exercise can also help hold your younger children’s attention better and keep them interested. The “one minute workout” is a great way to put fitness into your children’s day, at the beginning, middle and end, if possible. With your kids, do 10 punches, 10 march-in-place, 10 jumping jacks, 10 touch-the-floor and jump-up, and finish with 10 run-in-place. You’re done in just one minute and best of all, you can do it anywhere in the house and at any time! I also encourage your family to walk more. Even if it’s just once or twice a week, 10 minutes of brisk walking will get everyone’s collective heart rate up, and you’ll be spending quality time together, too ( no cell phone allowed!) which fosters closer relationships and better communication.” 

  And here is another great idea that Kathy makes, have the kids help carry the groceries!!!   

Best of all, busy moms can create a customized family calendar with different icons for all the different activities in their children’s schedules such as soccer, homework, movie night, dance class, etc… just drop and drag.  Wonderful, easy tool that can help keep your whole family fit, and organzied!  Take a peak at the whole Kathy Kaehler article by visiting her page at – Kathy Kaehler

Baby Lists – What to Do and What to Get to Prepare for Baby by Elaine Farber – Enter to win this giveaway!

This book is the newest member of the Baby Swags product family. If this book had been around when I was first pregnant, I would have had everything I needed to have.

From choosing the hospital to what toys are best for your one year old, this book goes through every category and pin points everything that is needed to get you to the next stage of your pregnancy journey on through your child’s first year.
