Innovative Products for Babies and Kids
There is a new option out there for parents who have children with asthma. A German company has manufactured a child friendly inhalation aid (aka spacer) for children called the "Watchhaler®".
This may not be the diaper bag I choose for myself, but this is one I would definitely consider for my husband (and many of my mom friends). When my kids were younger, they didn't have as many choices for dads (or maybe I was just too darn tired to look on theInternet for them). read more »

My youngest son loves stuffed animals. I think the stuffed animals in his bed take up more room than he does. I hate stuffed animals. And with the holiday season around the corner, I know I have to prepare myself for more stuffed animals. Did I mention I hate stuffed animals? But I've got to admit, I wouldn't mind my kids getting this stuffed animal as a present. read more »

We went to a children's museum a couple of months ago and it had a roman arch puzzle. If you assembled all the wood pieces together correctly, it could support itself with out any help (like from nails). My kids spent quite a while on it. It was really amazing when it was completed. So when I saw this Roman Arch wooden puzzle available from Edmund Scientific, I thought what a great puzzle for my kids. read more »
I took my boys to the dentist on Monday. Before the dentist cleaned each child's teeth, he asked what flavor he liked. My oldest got his teeth cleaned with bubble gum flavored toothpaste. My youngest got his teeth cleaned with marshmallow flavored toothpaste. This experience left me wondering why there weren't more flavored toothpastes being sold. We've seen bubble gum flavored toothpaste at the stores before but never marshmallow.
So, I'm walking out of the dentist office and I stop at the desk to make sure that my insurance information is good when I see tubes of weird looking toothpaste on the check out desk. It looks weird because I've never seen this toothpaste in the stores before. I look closer and pick up the first one; it says it vanilla ice cream flavored. read more »
Back in June, I wrote an article about about adorable plush animal TVs titled, Animals,TVs and Humidifiers - HotSpotMama Recommendations. The company that made the plush animal TVs, Hannspree, has come out with some new stuff worth checking out. Hannspree has a TV for your big kid (yes, I am talking about adults) and your little kid.
I think its safe to say that Hannspree easily makes over 100 TVs. To give you an example of the ones they make, here are a few (some old and some new): read more »
Back in September, I wrote an article called "Coolest Combo: Phone and Video Baby Monitor - HotSpotMama Find". I really loved this product when I found. I still love it - so much that I decided to repeat myself.
Holidays are coming up fast. This has got to be one of the best presents for new parents. I was walking through two of large baby stores today and came to a realization, this is still a brilliant product There is nothing else out there that's similar. Here's my article from September:

Looking for a great video baby monitor?
When I had my first baby (who is now 5 years old), we bought a video baby monitor. We thought it was the coolest thing that we could watch our child while he was sleeping without him seeing us. The problem was that it was too big and a bit too bright. The screen had to be about four inches wide. So when we went to bed and left the monitor on (yes, like a typical first time mom), it pretty much lit up our entire room. Also, it was a huge eyesore on my dresser. Luckily, you can avoid all that now. read more »
