Shop Launch

Mom's Advice Magazine is now launching our Shop, available through our website! This is a great way for moms to make a one-time stop if they are wanting to shop online as they browse Mom's Advice Magazine. This frees up your time and rids you of un-needed trips to other websites for multiple items.

We're now allowing businesses to start listing their items; Mom's Advice Magazine Shop is great because it's convenient and easy to get to. As a business, you will have the option to list as many items as you would like, with unlimited quantity. No more cut-offs or absolutes. Our Shop provides a way for you to market your business, whether it's a smaller home-based business or more expanded. Because Mom's Advice Magazine is already pre-marketed towards women and parenting, this gives you less headaches in trying to get the word out to a specific crowd, and it is also a great opportunity for moms who work from home and can't market as much as they would like. Our prices are very affordable and fit everyone's budget. Please email us for more info if you are interested in listing your items in our Shop:

Baby Nap Cap Review

Adeline wearing the Baby Nap Cap!
Baby Nap Cap: What I love about the Baby Nap Cap, is that it doesn’t look or work like a contraption. When I read about a product and how it says that it promotes napping by blocking out distractions, and instead relax and calms my baby to regulate sleep, I immediately think “Whoa! This sounds awesome! So I just need a few plugs to hook it up and some extra space in that corner for this jig to fit in to… “ Thankfully with the Baby Nap Cap, it’s simple, it’s safe, it’s light, and it's great at blocking out distractions and the light so my baby can nap better.

I don’t have to worry about trying to get my baby to fit into some special baby bed or any of the likes—it’s as simple as putting a hat on their head that has a very soft visor. The Baby Nap Cap is a useful accessory for my baby, and I know I’ll be using it for quite a while.

Review: Wee Can Too Edible Fingerpaint Tottle Set

Wee Can Too Edible Fingerpaint Tottle Set Review
As my daughter is entering into her toddler years she’s becoming more and more active. It’s hard to find anything that will keep her occupied for very long. I had thought about getting some type of craft or paint set for her, in hopes that she’d like it, but I was always worried that she’d eat it! She has a knack for wanting to taste everything that she plays with. Wee Can Too Edible Art Supply ( was an absolute life-saver. I was able to try out their edible fingerpaint tottle set both myself and with my daughter. The great thing is that the fingerpaint set is organic, vegan free without wheat, sugar and preservatives. There are 5 colors made from real fruit and vegetable powders:  blueberries for a lush purple/blue, beets for a bright red/pink, orange and yellow from pumpkin, and spinach for a realistic green. They’re extremely simple to use, all you have to do is add water and shake and you’re ready to go. It’s important to keep in mind that after you use the paints, you need to refrigerate them. I had forgotten to do so with one bottle and it got a little runny. Fingerpaint Tottle Set
Isn't our goofy painting beautiful?
My daughter loved playing with the tottle set, and I felt at ease with her using them because I didn’t have to worry about her licking her fingers or eating the paints—if she did (and of course she did try a few times), I was content with knowing that the paints were all natural and safe! What I really liked about Wee Can Too’s fingerpaints was that it was easy to clean off.  Gone were the days when I would have to scrub and slave over the table trying to get the paint to come off, or worse, live with a stained tabletop. The paint set had a slight stain to them (especially on our fingertips) after they were wiped off, but with a little soap, it washed out right away. I loved the fact that since the paints were edible neither of us had to worry about cleaning our fingers through to switch to a different color. It was as easy as licking our fingers.
My favorite color to paint with is the yellow; I can’t get over how bright and luminous the color is. I found that all of the colors in the set had a very nice glow to them, and seemed brighter than other fingerpaints that I had used before. Their consistency at first didn’t feel like other non-natural store brand fingerpaints (the tottle set is a little grainier) but don’t let that fool you! It dried absolutely the same as other store brands, and kept its bright luster. The painting set definitely went a long way and is still going a long way in use. I had first doubted how much I would get out of the set since not even half of the bottle was full, but after adding water, I was surprised at how much the mixture thickened and expanded. I would highly recommend that you add water, literally almost to the very top. At first I added water to only a little bit above the middle, but this wasn’t enough and the paints were a bit too thick and grainy. It was so convenient though to only have to add more water to even it out, and if the paints ever got too watery, I would merely let them sit and chill out in the fridge for a while. Before I knew it, the consistency had gotten thicker.
Overall, the Wee Can Too Edible Fingerpaint Tottle set was excellent, and I had fun using them just as much as my daughter. They’re safe, convenient, and clean.

We’ll be having a giveaway from them soon as well as a video-review, so keep an eye out:
