Little boys and dinosaurs seem to go hand in hand. My Son is obsessed with dinosaurs at the moment, he has dinosaur clothing, dinosaur books, and dinosaur toys. When I told him that we had been invited to a special screening of the movie – The Good Dinosaur – it was just the icing on the cake. What 5-year-old, doesn’t like a good Dino flick?
Hippocrates, considered the father of Western medicine, is often quoted as saying, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Most of us know that a poor diet can contribute to poor health, but there are also certain foods that can support your immune system and increase your body’s resilience. As flu season peaks, here are a few foods that can help you boost your immunity through your diet.
With Thanksgiving only a few days away here in the United States, we are excited to share another vegan, sugar & gluten free desert recipe following Cara’s fruit-topped cheesecake, to be sitting pretty at your table this year.
This recipe is also from the book – Love On A Plate – which is filled with plant-based recipes which do not require cooking, also know as raw food. For raw food enthusiasts, this is a book which will nicely complement others in your library. Or, if you appreciate the benefits of uncooked food from time-to-time and need some inspiration, then Love on A Plate is a good place to start.
Okay, so Thanksgiving is just around the corner and with Thanksgiving comes the tradition of eating copious amounts of food. Thanksgiving is a bitter-sweet holiday for me, I am always so completely devastated by the by the estimate that close to 45 million turkeys are inhumanely killed in the United States for this day, each year. It is definitely not a thanksgiving for the turkey.
Looking after your teeth, (and your children’s teeth from an early age), is imperative to ensure you will all have a healthy set for the rest of your life, but what about natural options? Most of the common sense steps you can take are pretty straight forward, like –
- Brushing your teeth after every meal, or at least twice a day, aiming to brush for a solid 2 minutes of cleaning for the best results
- Floss daily
- Avoid eating damaging foods and drinks, such as fizzy drinks and sugary foods
- If you drink coffee, rinse your mouth out with water afterwards to avoid staining
- See a dentist regularly, I take my Son and I also go every 6 months for a cleaning and a check up

Here at Willy B Mum we are excited to be teaming up with fellow parenting blogger Mommy on the Money to be giving away a Tula Baby Carrier to one lucky winner. If you do not know what a Tula is, rest assured the brand has kind of like a cult follower, and is a very popular choice for carrying your Little One close to you while moving through your day-to-day business. One of the reasons I personally love it, is because there are so many bright colors to choose from, but there are many other pros to consider too.
This giveaway is not sponsored by Tula or any other brand. Instead, it is an amazing group of bloggers who pooled together their money and time to give away this awesome prize. Let’s shout out to Michigan Savings and More, This N That with Olivia, Live Life Naturally and Tales from A Southern Mom — this is a product that we all honestly love!
So Why Tula?
We appreciate the award-winning Tula brand for its overall practicality. However, in particular for the carrier we are giving away; it can be used in both front and back positions to carry your Little One, it holds a child from 15 – 45 pounds, it is so easy to use and very comfortable to wear, and it can be used from birth by using the additional buy of the infant insert. Among many other reasons!
As some of you are probably already aware, there are so many benefits to baby wearing and Kristi over at MommyOnTheMoney.com is enjoying wearing her second baby, right now. And, of course she is using a wonderful Tula baby carrier. No she didn’t win the Tula, or get it for free for talking about it on her blog. In actual fact she bought not 1 but 4 of them because she couldn’t decide which one she liked best! As an after thought, she figured she would choose one, return 2 and collaborate with some bloggers to give one away.
So which one are we giving away?
Well that would be, the beautifully colorful new Tula ergonomic baby carrier in the Parker design (seen at left).
It’s Giveaway Time
We are giving away a Tula Baby Carrier valued at around $150 USD.
This giveaway is open to residents in the United States only who are over 18 years of age.
This giveaway ends on Thursday the 5th on November, 2015.
