Infantino Fresh Squeezed Line Review #TestandTell @infantino

* Disclosure: Party of 5 received samples in order to facilitate this review.All opinions are my own. *

Feeding my 1 year old on the go is often a pain in the tush. We are so busy and I have been on a clean eating kick. I want to know what I am putting in my kids bodies. 

With the Infantino Fresh Squeezed Line I can make Amelia any type of food I can think of that can be put in a squeeze pouch! 

 The Fresh Squeezed feeding line offers you everything you need to make your own purees into those super convenient, easy to store, single serve pouches. The process is so simple. I created a video that shows you how I made some Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal Pouches for Amelia.

                                         *Warning: Olivia tries to take over*


The whole process is so easy and as you can see from my video even the thicker oatmeal goes through. Amelia didn't have much difficulty getting it out of the pouch at all.

The pouches are perfect for our family and our super busy lifestyle.

We were sent the Squeeze Station which is where you will add your pouches and your tubes to fill the pouches! It's super easy to clean and easy to store! This piece retails for $24.99

A 50 pack of  Squeeze Pouches  which is where you will add all of your homemade goodness! I mean you could mix a bunch of store bought stuff together but then that would kind of defeat the purpose, right?!   A box of 50 retails for $14.99  These are not reusable and should be thrown away after each use. The plus is that they are BPA free! These also have a spot where you can write the date and exactly what you have inside so no guessing games!

The Fridge and Freezer Sleeve is great for holding up to 12 pouches either in the fridge or freezer. Retails for $9.99

Couple A Spoons are the best thing since sliced bread! They attach to the pouches and make feeding smaller babies on the go a breeze! For $3.99 for a 2 pack with a ring that hooks onto your diaper bag so you are never without these are a MUST have for every Mom, Dad, and Caregiver!

Keeper Squeeze Pouch is a non disposable squeeze pouch, This means you can wash it and re use it over and over again! This is so versatile because you can either use it with the Fill Station or just fill it yourself. This also comes with a hook so you can clip it on your diaper bag. $7.99 is the retail value.

I absolutely love our Fresh Squeezed Line so much and can't stop making new concoctions for Amelia to try out for when we are on the go!

If you are looking for an easy, inexpensive way to make your babies food I would suggest you check out the Infantino Fresh Squeezed Line. I don't think that you will be disappointed.

PetzBeach Review @ubisoft #PetzBeach #CleverGirls

My girls love playing video games especially when we travel long distances.  We had the opportunity to try out Petz Beach and they were so excited. They both love animals of all kinds, especially Olivia. There are more than 50 different types of animals in the game ranging from cats to dogs and dolphins and whales! 

Petz Beach partners with Encyclopedia Britannica to include learning along the way. My girls learned facts about animals, plants, and insects as they played the game. The things they learned was amazing. They both kept yelling out facts as we drove along! 

As they played the game it also expanded so I didn't need to purchase a second game to go alongside. Helping the new friends they make along the way help to expand the game. 

You can purchase Petz Beach on

Casetify Review @Casetify #Casetify #HGG14

* Disclosure: Party of 5 and Counting received a sample in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. *

Every time I go somewhere without my kids, I always seem to run into someone I know, and of course, they ask about my kids! Most of the time they also want to see pictures.

Cue me pulling out my phone and while they stare at me and try to peek at my phone, I have to scan quick through my embarrassing selfies I just took in the parking lot because I'm alone and well, I can. Anyone else...? 

This case from casetify saved me from that. I ran into some old neighbors while out at the store picking up some medicine for my sick kids and instead of searching through selfies, I pulled out my phone and showed them the case!!! (Seriously, can my kids be any cuter!)

Making this case was seriously fool proof. I went to, chose my phone, picked a template, and it allowed me to grab my photos right from Facebook. It took me longer to pick my favorite pictures than anything else! When I placed my order it said it would take 10-14 days, it was to me within the week! 

This case is not for someone who requires a lot of protection for their phone. It's not going to protect it like those other super duty cases. However, I hardly ever drop my phone, it's normally in my pocket, in my purse, or sitting on a table. This suits my needs perfectly and I love it! 

Casetify phone cases can be made for not only Samsung Galaxy phones but also for iPhones and iPads as well as Blackberry phones, wait they still make those?!

If you don't want photos of your kids on your phone, Casetify also offers some pretty neat collections of photos you can have put on a case for your phone as well.

The cases are very affordable, pricing around $40 and make a pretty awesome gift!
