AVENT Natural Glass Bottle Review - Watch Your Toes!

I'm a breastfeeding advocate. It hasn't always been this way. Eighteen years ago when I had my first son I managed to breastfeed for only a few weeks. I remember those exhausting days of pacing the floors waiting for his bottle to warm up as he cried in my arms. I'm much more rested now that I have mastered nursing my little ones, yet our newest little guy (already 18 months) is still nursing like a newborn. I could give you a million reasons why but really it doesn't matter to me, this is what he needs so this is what I do. Very soon I will be attending a trade show, two days in a row for 7 hrs per day. I found myself anxious and almost backing out ...what will I do. Rather what will he and my husband do? Now I know this is backwards but I thought why not try a bottle? (yes he is 18 months and drinks out of sippys and even small cups) but I was thinking more for the comfort why not a bottle of warm milk? So I tried it...and....he liked it. I don't know how their day will go but I feel more comforted knowing it is an option.

When my oldest was born I used AVENT products. It was a brand I knew and trusted. I checked the website and saw many changes that I liked, first of all they offer amazing support for parents. You can sign up and receive personalized tips, advice and exclusive offers. You can sign up for free at Philips AVENT. If you sign up before baby's first birthday you'll even receive $37.50 in coupons.

24 Hour Marathon Gaming with Extra Life to Raise Donations for the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto

Next weekend I am going to be taking part in a marathon, a gaming marathon, where we will be playing board games for 24 hours straight to help raise donations for the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.

On Saturday Oct.25th I'll be joining in with hundreds of other gamers across North America, playing games for 24 hours straight as part of the 2014 Extra Life Event.

Personally I'm using this as a chance to raise funds for the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. And you can help. Here's what I'm asking....

Let me have your coffee. Come on, I'm going to be staying up for more then 24 hours straight. I think I'll need the caffeine more then you do. All kidding aside, I'm asking that you take the $2 or $3 you would spend on coffee one day next week and instead donate it. It's super easy. Click through this link and donate directly via the Extra Life website. It's quick, it's secure. You get a charity receipt. All of the proceeds go directly towards helping hospitals in the Children's Miracle Network, in this case the Sick Kids Hospital of Toronto. So what do you say, can you spare me a coffee?

If you're in the Windsor area you can check out the full details for our local event HERE. For the second year in a row our Friendly Local Gaming Store, Brimestone Games, has been awesome enough to plan to stay open overnight for us; providing us with a public place to hold our marathon gaming session. We'll be there from 10:00am on Saturday October 25th until 10:00am on Sunday October 26th.  Even if you aren't up to 24 straight hours of gaming feel free to stop in for a visit or to play a game or three. At 8pm on the 25th there will be a live auction full of all sorts of gaming goodies (with of course all monies raised going towards donations to the Children's Miracle Network).
