Bobee Diaper & Wipe Dispenser- Wall Mounted & Easy To Use!

Bobee Diaper & Wipes Dispenser

When you have little ones, you find yourself with baby stuff everywhere! Diaper bags in every corner, diapers, wipes, bottles, toys, clothes, burp rags, bibs, on every inch of your home! Having a baby seems to make even the most organized person a little crazy with clutter! But with so many products to choose from, different sizes, colors, shapes, materials, and so on, it can be hard to find something that will fit you and your families needs! Then I found Bobee Diaper & Wipes Dispenser!

Getting to test out the latest Diaper and Wipes Dispenser from Bobee was something I was looking forward to! I love having everything organized and feel that you must have a place for everything or you will end of with clutter every where! So having a designated place for just wipes and diapers was pretty interesting!

Bobee Diaper Stacker / Diaper Caddy / Wipe Dispenser Award Winning Diaper Organizer for Nursery (Customizable, includes Colored Decals)Your dispenser will come with all the items you need to mount to the wall, decorate and dispense your favorite diapers and wipes! There are many colors you can choose from, mix and match to make your own combination- making your own design is half the fun!

The dispenser slides onto a mounting plate that attaches to your wall. You may install the plate with provided drywall screws and anchors, or you may mount it into a wall stud. Complete mounting instructions and mounting hardware (drywall screws and drywall anchors) are included with your dispenser.  We do not recommend you hang the dispenser directly over the changing table or anywhere that is accessible to your baby.

This dispenser holds about 40-50 standard cloth diapers, regular diapers and pull up and a regular size pack of wipes! With the easy to dispense design, you can use one hand to grab a diaper or wipe while using the other hand to hold that rolling baby! I would have to say this would be best for the hubby! I don’t know how many times I have seen him scramble trying to figure out how to keep one of our girls on the changing table while he tried to grab a diaper or wipe! This way you have one hand FREE to keep your baby safely on the changing table!

Bobee Diaper & Wipes DispenserMy favorite part about this dispenser is that it will be a product that I will continue to use for years to come. Even after the babies are out of diapers and fully potty trained, you can add this dispenser to your bathroom. This dispenser can be easily removed, change your stickers to match the bathroom decor and mounted right near the toilet. This will make a great place to add our little ones flush-able wipes and pull ups then keep them nice and organized in this super cute dispenser!

Check your local baby retailers for this Bobee Diaper & Wipes Dispenser, Bobee listing here or on Amazon! You can snag one of these for around $50!

Belly Fat Diet for Dummies + Berry Smoothie Recipe

Belly Fat Diet For Dummies (1118345851) cover image

One of our goals this year, not only for myself, but for my family as well is to eat better and for my hubby and I to drop a few pounds! One spot that my hubby and I both have problems with is belly fat! It never seems to go away and just looking at food, I seem to gain 2 more pounds around my waist!

Belly Fat Diet for Dummies is the latest book from the For Dummies collection giving you a complete layout and easy to follow process to loosing that belly fat!

  • Identify what type of belly fat you have and see how it effects your health
  • Safely loose the belly fat with tips and nutrition
  • Try belly slimming foods and fat burning exercises to slim your waist
  • Get immediate results with this proven program

My hubby was my guinea pig on this one, since he feels that he has the least amount of time to work out and slim his belly! After just one week he did notice a difference in his waist line! He started out slow and follow their step by step basic exercises like Basic Planks, Arm Circles, Swingin Abs, Chair Leg Raises, Laying Leg Raises Oblique Planks- which he thought was great since he could do them at home with out the need of a expensive gym! I am sticking to this routine, since I don’t seem to like exercise as much as the hubby! Although these moves are simple enough for me to do throughout the day, between chores, driving the kiddos back and forth to school and running errands, which I love!

Once you have mastered the basics, you can head right on into the Super Belly Blasters which can help you drop belly fat pretty quickly. I am still working my way up to these, but the hubby had no problem! There is a Week by Week Workout schedule to help you keep on track with what you should be accomplishing each day during your Belly Fat workout! Even though exercise is key to helping you burn the belly fat, you need to incorporate better and healthier foods into your diet to keep that belly fat in check!

Knowing what you are eating and what is in your food is going to help you learn quickly what is good for you and what is not! Chapter 11 has a whole section dedicated to decoding food labels and nutritional claims on packaging! There are many things that I did not know, that there is a difference in the meaning of low calorie, light calories, low fat and light fat! I guess I had just always assumed that they all pretty much meant the same thing, but there is a break down of what each claim means!

Here is one of my favorite recipes from the book- Berry Smoothies! This was great to be able to make ahead of time and take with me on the go!

Belly Blasting Berry Smoothie Recipe- 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen organic berries (blueberries, strawberries, etc)
