Baby's First Foods Review and Giveaway


There are So many things to remember when you have a new baby. Yet this is a time when for most moms our memory is put to the test the most. We are getting little sleep and yet having to take care of the most important thing in the world.
I don’t know about you but I love keeping track of every little thing with my boys and writing in their baby albums; but who has the time. I often say I am going to write something down and then I forget and a couple months later I am making up when I ‘think’ one of my kids did something.
That was until I ran across Glow Baby. Lindsay has you all covered when it comes to keeping track of things with your new baby. She has:

I was given the Baby’s First Food’s Journal to Review. I love the details in this book and how it is broke down into categories. The neat thing about this is not only do you have something to keep with your baby book to give to your child someday but it is wonderful for leaving with a sitter, family member, or anyone who might need to feed your baby yet has no idea their likes and dislikes. I have already used the recipe section several times. I mean how many times have you been at church, a friends house, or somewhere and found something your child really like. Even more how often have you read a recipe and thought this would make a great one to try? Well now you just write it in the recipes section of the book and have it handy. Here is one I have already added that I have to try:
Teething Biscuit Recipes - Vanilla Teether Shapes (DAIRY FREE)
1 egg, beaten
4 oz (1/2 cup) sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 oz (1 cup) flour

Preheat the oven to 325 deg F, 160 deg C.
Place the egg in a bowl and stir in the sugar and vanilla.
Add the flour and stir in, until the dough is stiff.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface, then cut into shapes.
Allow to stand for 12 hours (it's a good idea to make these in the evening then leave the dough overnight).
Bake until golden and hard.


A really great idea is Glow Baby has a gift basket that is so wonderful for any Baby Shower or Welcome baby gift. I have a few friends expecting little ones this year; I may consider this. It includes:
·    Baby's First Journal (Green)
·    Baby's First Foods
·    Babysitter Notes
·    Shopping List
·    Medication Pad
·    To Do List
·    All products decoratively wrapped in clear cellophane and tied with matching ribbon
