Put the ChooMee Sip’n through the Liquid Test

We have been talking about how the ChooMee Sip’n soft top comes with a innovative valve design that helps to prevent accidental spillage from food pouches. We also shared about the additional benefits of the Sip’n such as encouraging your toddler to feed independently with the pouch, protecting your kids’ delicate gums and teeth from damage due to them chewing on the plastic, and preventing the spout of the pouch from being chewed out of shape (in case you need to keep the leftovers for later).

When we got our Sip’n from ChooMee, we were also curious to see for ourselves the limits of this simple design. So we called in our product tester to try to pull out the attached top and to try to shake the contents out from the pouch. So far so good!

 

 

But as you know, contents in food pouches can sometime be rather viscous or thick. So we thought, why not test it on liquid. If the Sip’n can hold in liquid, thicker contents will not be a problem. And so we did!  We attached the Sip’n to a packet of Ribena drink and the results are pretty awesome and convincing. See it for yourself.

Bitatto Wet Wipes Cover

Before we became parents, wet wipes is not something we would usually carry around. But now, we will have wet wipes everywhere we go, and at least a few packets left opened at home and at different parts of the house.

Talking to friends and other parents, we quickly realise that we face common problems with the current packaging:

  1. The sticky cover kind of loose it’s stickiness after some time
  2. It is difficult to open the lid especially when our fingers are dirty
  3. Some practice is required to close the wet wipes properly to ensure a good seal

If you too face these issues, then the Bitatto wet wipe covers maybe something for you. It is a reusable plastic lid that replaces the sticky tape. It is easy to attach (see below) and once it is on, it stays on.

Awesomeness of the Bitatto

One finger action is all you need to open the wet wipes. No more fiddling and struggling to remove the sticky tape cover. This is especially useful when your fingers are dirty and you only have your knuckles. Think after eating the IKEA chicken wings!

Next, one finger action is all you need to close the lid and that ensures a good seal. Current sticky tapes usually require us to run our palm over it, to even out the wrinkles on the packaging in order to ensure a good seal. With the Bitatto wet wipe cover, one finger is all you need to close and seal the wipes, keeping the wipes moist. Learn more about the Bitatto covers.

One More Thing

It is always good to keep a packet of wipes in the car. Never know when you need it, to wipe away the bird dropping on the windscreen, to clean your fingers after you refill the air for your tyres, to clean up the occasional mess by the kiddos (and adults) etc.

Problem is that the temperature in the car can climb to a very high level. And this means that you are literally ‘steaming’ your wet wipes in the car. If the seal is poor, the wet wipes will lose its moisture very quickly. The Bitatto lid may be the answer to this. Not to say that the seal is perfect, it is definitely better than the sticky tape ones.

Two Sizes to Choose From

The Bitatto lids come in two sizes: Regular and Mini. The regular size fits on larger packet of wipes while the mini ones fit on smaller tissue sized packet of wipes. There is also a variety of colours for you to choose from.

Sucking Pads for Ergobaby, Tula, Manduca Carriers

Already own an Ergobaby, Tula or Manduca baby carrier, or just looking to purchase one of these carriers? Whichever the case, one accessory that is often overlooked are the sucking pads (or drool pads) that go around the straps of the carrier. Because of the design of these baby carriers,  your baby will easily learn that they can chew and suck on the straps. Without the sucking pads, the straps will be soaked in saliva in no time and you will have to wash your carrier quite often in order for it to not smell.

The sucking pads are designed to go around the straps (secured with velcro) and to protect the straps and provide a soft spot for your child to rest his/her cheeks. The straps are reversible so it doubles the usage time and most importantly, prevents the accumulation of saliva.

Most of the carriers, such as ErgoBaby and Manduca have their own line of suck pads, for instance “Fumbee” for Manduca. However, a short-coming would be the lack of loops for you to clip or attach any teething toy or pacifier. We recognise this problem and let us present to you the Red Charlotte suck pads. They come with loops sewn into the suck pads so that you can easily attach toys or teethers. What’s more, they are brightly coloured and helps to enhance and personalise the look of your carrier! Because the suck pads are wide enough, they can double as strap covers for your baby car seat belts or the stroller straps.

The Benefits of Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is the edible oil pressed from the pulp of the avocado. It can be used as a beneficial skin care product, for special scalp treatments, medicinal purposes, and in healthy cooking.

Nutritional Benefits:

  • Protein and Fats. Avocado oil contains a high amount of proteins and unsaturated fats, both of which are strong skin agents. Avocado oil actually contains omega-3 fatty acids – those very same fatty acids as found in fish oil. Thus, not only can this oil be used as a beneficial lotion, but also as healthy cooking oil!
  • Sterolin. Avocado oil is high in a substance called sterolin, which studies have shown to facilitate the softening of the skin and to reduce the incidence of age spots;
  • Antioxidants. Avocado oil is rich in antioxidants, making it useful for healing sun-damaged skin. Antioxidants like vitamins A, D and E in avocado cause the skin to be suppler, and are thus particularly good for dry or aged skin.
  • Lecithin and Potassium. Avocado oil contains lecithin and potassium, which are all highly beneficial for the skin as well as the hair;

Health Benefits:

  • Moisturize the Skin. Avocado oil applied topically helps relieve dry and itchy skin. Once applied, avocado oil is deeply absorbed by the skin, thus making it an ideal moisturizer and skin care agent.
  • Boost Scalp Health. In addition to helping clear scaly skin, it can also relieve itchy scalp symptoms. Avocado oil, when regularly applied to the scalp, can stimulate hair growth.
  • Increase Collagen Production. When applied, avocado oil increases the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin plump and decreases the effects of aging.
  • Treat Skin Conditions. Avocado oil is useful in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
  • Others. Avocado oil facilitates the healing of wounds and burns to the skin. It also helps to relieve and heal diaper rash.

Our Little Innoscents Moisturising Lotion is full of this Avocado Oil goodness. It is non greasy, absorbs into the skin very well, whilst hydrating your skin. Try it, at $15.50 for 100ml, or $6 for 30ml

Bio Shield Body Protectant

What is the difference between Bio Shield Kiddie body protectant and a hand sanitizer? 

With a hand santizer, you are just cleaning your hands before you touch something. After you touched an object, if it has bacteria or germs, your hands get infected again. You are carrier of germs and bacteria, and you may ingest the said contaminant if you do not wash your hands thoroughly, or you may even pass the germs and bacteria to someone else. 

With Bio Shield kiddie, you are not only cleaning your hands. You are protecting it for the next four hours. If you were to pick an object with bacteria and germs, the germs and bacteria will die upon contact with this protective layer on your hands. You do not bring the germs and bacteria around with you.

You may ask, if Bio Shield kills germs and bacteria, what about germs and bacteria on our skin that actually protect us?

Bio Shield is vitamin based, and is made from vitamins that our body is already producing. So not only will it not kill beneficial germs and bacteria, our skin will also not grow any resistance to it.

Bio Shield is also organic and alcohol-free, hence not damaging skin. It protects us from common germs like cough and flu, E. Coli, Samonella, HMFD (A16 strain), H1N1. Perfect for the toddler who wants to touch everything and anything, lift buttons, door handles, hand rails, shared toys, ball pits, etc.

Why not protect your family with Bio Shield Kiddie?

Reusable Wet Wipes Cover

Wet wipes or baby wipes is a huge thing in Singapore. Head down to the hawker centres and you can see families using wet wipes to clean the tables, utensils, hands and mouth. One common issue faced by people is that the seal on the wet wipes packet no longer sticks. This means that your wipes are getting dry over time, leaving you with dried up wipes in the pack. Some wet wipes also come with flimsy plastic stickers that fall off easily.

If you too face this problem, check out the Bitatto reusable wet wipes covers. All you have to do is to peel off the sticker seal on the wet wipe packet, and replace it with the Bitatto wet wipe cover. It is reusable as the cover is designed to be taken off the emptied packet and stick it on a new pack. If the adhesive is no longer sticky, simply rinse it with water, rub off the dirt, air dry and it will be as good as new! Each cover is expected to last around 4 months. It is that simple and economical.

The Bitatto comes in two sizes: Regular and Mini. The regular Bitatto fits on larger packet of wipes like baby wipes, wipes for nursing care or pets. The mini Bitatto fits on smaller tissue sized packet of wipes. There is also a variety of colours for you to choose from. There is one to suit everyone.

A Natural Degreaser

Okay, rave of the week has to go to the Bio+Green Crystal Natural Degreaser. I can’t believe I am trying to cook more often just so that I can dirty up my cooker hood filter so that I can demo to people at the flea market how it works.

#auntiemode “来啊来啊auntie uncle come and see ah..”

See that familiar yellow stain on the filter? That is at least half a year of oil build up stuck on it. When you touch it, it is sticky and it doesn’t come off your fingers easily. I would soak it in A LOT of hot boiling soap water many times. And even then, I am not satisfied with it. It is still..yech, greasy or sticky.Then came the Natural Degreaser. Spray, sit for 5 minutes. Wipe.

See the paper under the filter, oil residue has dripped onto it. It was broken down by the degreaser.

Spray another time, sit for another 5 minutes, wipe and rinse.

Can you see how clean my lovely filter is? This is a non-toxic, organic filter. I do not need to use harsh chemicals to clean or scrub it. Just spray and wipe.

Simplify your life today.
