Blow-Out Blocker {A Review}

The Blow Out Blocker

A Review

 
 
http://melzybaby.com/
 
There is nothing quite like picking up your amazing beautiful little one only to plant your hand on the small of their back and smoosh it into goo...
Yeah you know what kind of goo I'm talking about..... yep, that kind....
A blow out of
 
POO
 
You might be gagging a little or maybe even a lot but one thing will always remain the same... you have to clean the mess. And as a mom of a cloth diapering bundle who should have the middle name of "blow out king" I know a little about this adventure in parenthood better then I ever wanted to.
I have been blessed to try out, test, and review an amazing product called The Blow Out Blocker or as we call it in our house the short and shirt saver! This great product wraps around your little one and secures with hook and loop (velerco). We had no problems with it wiggling or shifting.  And it's thin, so you don't have to worry about it being bulky and trying to get clothes to fit over it. Once you have diaper on your little one you just wrap this around them and secure it with the hook and loop.  The larger part layes against babys back so when your little does have a blow out it doesn't get on shirts and such when it travels up their back.





 
Here is a link to a you tube video how it goes on

Still wondering how well it works? 
 
Let me tell you the story of how well it worked out for us .....

Currently {as in right at this moment while I am writing this posting} we are traveling from our home in northeast Texas to Orlando, Florida to Walt Disney World. Max hadn't pooped in 3 days and we are talking about a kid who poops at least 3 times a day on a normal day. Yes, yes, I was a little scared for that diaper that I knew was to come! Well it finally happened.... while we stopped at Panda Express for dinner, I was so excited to have 'Panda' again! We haven't had it since we lived in California.
Well, first it was a glance at me,  then a bit of a distored look, redding of his cheeks, then it was him telling me he had to potty... then the smell hit like a slap in the face.  He then suddenly seemed much happier and relaxed. As he got out of his seat and waddled over {Yes! Waddled it was so full!} I already knew there was no diaper in the world that could handle all that was in there waiting for me.
Thank the good luck of having "The Blocker" on him, it caught it all! I was kinda shocked and elated all at the same time. It was an easy clean up and I took off his shirt and shorts and unwrapped The Blocker from around him.  I wiped off his back and then changed his diaper. I have never been so happy for a "good" wetbag like that before! When we get to the hotel room, I'll rinse everything out and wash it with the diapers. Easy peasy! I think every parent should have several of it these! Traveling with them have been a blessing so glad we had it when we did! I don't even want to start to think about the mess that I would have had to clean if it hadn't of been for "The Blocker" being on him when it was!
 
Here is a you tube video of the blowout blocker in action
 
By the time I get home and get this posted it this event will just be a memory- one that I'll be glad to have behind me! HA! HA!
These are going to be one of my new 'go to' gifts for any baby shower that I am invited to and any time that I need to get a gift for a new parent, this is going to be of those  every parent 'need to have' types of gifts!

Target {Breakfast Twist}

Target

{Breakfast Twist}



"UGH it can't possibly be morning already!" is what I normally tell my self when the alarm goes off at 530 am and then from there it's "Get up! Get up! Get up!!!!" as I pull covers off of kids heads, turn on lights, and turn off heaters......  then it's "Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up!!!!" for about 20 mins. We need to get out of the house by 7 am so that my entire day doesn't end up 'late'  and somewhere in the middle of that is....
 Breakfast
 Does this sound like your house and your mornings yet? Mornings can get stressful and in the middle of that you are trying your darn-est to make sure that you are feeding your kiddos a healthy meal and that they are ACTUALLY eating it.

The other day I got a nice big box delivered to me and it was like breakfast Christmas opening it up here is what was inside:
  • 1 pouch Nature Valley® Protein Granola
  • 1 box Nature Valley® Granola Bars
  • 1 box Honey Nut Cheerios® Medley Crunch™ cereal
  • 1 box Trix® cereal
  • 1 package Quaker® Oats
  • 1 jar Jif® peanut butter
  • 1 package Nutella® mini cups
  • 1 pouch Grandma Hoerner’s® Big Slice™ apples snack
  Provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op we were sent all this yumminess to try out. And we had a great time trying it out! Mornings are always going to be a little rushed in our house, but they don't always have to be boring and blah. And this gave up the jump start that we needed to get out of our rut!
 
Here are a couple of the things that we did:
  • So we used some of the granola like cereal and ate it with milk
  • we toasted 12 grain bread and put peanut butter and Nutella on them.
  • We had oatmeal with Grandma Hoerner's big slice apples in them { OH MY GOSH SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!}
I had several pictures for you that I took with my phone but Max deleted the entire album that they were in :(   
 
 
 I did make this Oatmeal smoothie though*
 
*picture from site
 
 
You see I am a texture girl which means I'm not the biggest fan of Eating oatmeal but I love the benefits of it and I can drink smoothies all day long. So it was perfect for me to have on the go and it filled me up with out making me feel bloated.

All prize pack listing were given and sent free of charge to me for review through Platefull Co-Op and General Mills.
