Amazon Review of Kumfy Soft Nursing Pads

Today’s unbiased review is for Kumfy Soft Nursing Pads. They are cute and useful as well.

These are very cute, colorful, and soft nursing pads. Since my baby is three and a half months old I am past the stage of randomly leaking buckets of milk. Since my body has pretty much regulated Itself by this time I only leak just a little bit sometimes. I had been using regular disposable nursing pads, and I feel like I was wasting a lot of money. I would put a pair in every time I knew that I was going to be away from the house for more than a couple hours and sometimes I would leak and sometimes I wouldn’t. Or sometimes I would leave only a tiny bit and have to throw those pads away and it was definitely a waste.

Since these nursing pads are washable I can wear them anytime I’m going out of the house and not have to worry about throwing them away if I only leak on them a drop or two. And in addition to saving money, they are really extra super soft.

I love the colors, they are so much more fun than boring old white. These Kumfy Soft nursing pads are made using three layers, organic bamboo velour that goes next to the skin, microfiber in the middle to absorb milk, and on the outside is a water-proof layer next to your bra to keep it dry. I think that this is a great combination of softness, thinness, and leakage protection.

These are great nursing pads, and since they are washable I’m happy to say that I will be able to pass them on as hand-me-downs to my sister-in-law when I don’t need them anymore.

Opshorie Ionic Hair Straightener Brush Review

I am lucky enough to be able to test products for free or at a huge discount. This is my Amazon review of the Opshorie Ionic Hair Straightener Brush

I am really super happy that I ordered this ionic hair straightening brush. I already have one of the more common NON ionic hair straightener brushes with the rubber tips, and I have to say that this one is MUCH better.

This ionic hair straightener came in a very nice black box with a picture of the brush on it. In the box is the black ionic brush straightener, a hot mitt glove type thing, two alligator hair clips, and a user manual.

Everything on the brush is made of plastic except for the bristles and buttons which look to be metal, and there is a rubberish guard around the metal bristles. The buttons are metallic and the ionic button lights up. It is little heavy but still comfortable to use as a hair brush. I could see if you have very long and very thick hair that the weight of this brush might be a turn off, but since I have medium length and medium to thick hair the heaviness was a sign of durability. It feels WAY more sturdy than any of the other straightener brushes that I have tried out. Which, by the way, is 4 of them.

The buttons are located on the front of the handle which is better than the other hair straightener brushes that have them on the sides. It also has a small LED display to show the temperature of the hair brush as it’s heating, which I thought was an awesome feature. The LED screen flashes while the brush is heating up and stays lit when it’s reached the optimal temperature that you set it for.

The bristles are hard and stiff but very comfortable for me to use. They don’t have those rubber tips that can get caught in your hair. I like to use the straightener to just make my hair smoother, and when you turn the ionic button on you really only need one pass through your hair to make your hair nice and smooth and straight. Just take a look at my video and you can see how my hair went from kind of wavy and messed up looking to perfectly straight with just one pass through with this straightening brush. I also like how when you use the straightener it makes your hair automatically so much more shiny and smooth and professional looking.

I really like this hair brush straightener, I think that it was a great purchase. I would recommend this ionic hair straightener to with all types of hair, I think that this particular hair straightener would work on even curly hair. The other straightening brushes that I have tried definitely would not work on really curly hair. This one seems like it is a lot more powerful.

Medela Symphony Breast Pump Review

The Medela Symphony pump is hands down the best pump that is available on the market. Like most of the other reviewers I started out using this pump in the hospital. When my baby was born a few months ago he went directly to the NICU, I didn’t get to hold him other than for a few moments right after he was born. I wasn’t able to hold him let alone try to breastfeed him due to all of the wires and tubes. So very shortly after birth one of the nurses brought by a Medela Symphony pump and encouraged me to pump every 3 hours round the clock to establish my milk supply. Thank goodness that she did that, because otherwise I probably wouldn’t have been able to breastfeed since my baby didn’t get to come home until a week after I was discharged.

I rented the Medela Symphony pump from a supplier that the hospital recommended, and continued building my supply. When my baby came home I was mostly breastfeeding him, but also using the Medela Symphony pump to try and make my body produce more milk. The Medela Symphony pump is really awesome – I used a cheaper Medela Pump InStyle with my daughter 4 years ago, and the Medela Symphony pump is SO MANY steps above the InStyle that I’m surprised that they are even made by the same company.

However, it’s really convenient that they ARE the same company, because you can use the same pump parts such as the flanges (the horn things that go on the breasts), the membranes, the bottles, etc. The only thing that you have to get that is proprietary to the Medela Symphony pump is the tube kit that includes the membrane caps that attach the hoses to the pump motor. I personally didn’t have to buy the kit, because the hospital provided me with a set to use with their Medela Symphony pump when I was there, and encouraged me to take it home with me because I ended up renting a pump. So if you are in the hospital and are using a Medela Symphony pump or plan on buying one, make sure that you ask for the membrane and tube kit from the lactation consultant or your nurse, because otherwise you will have to buy it separately, and I believe that they run around $30 or so.

As my Medela Symphony pump rental was running out I dragged out my 4 year old InStyle pump, and it seemed like the motor was dying. So I ordered a new “hospital grade” pump of a different brand. It was SO UNCOMFORTABLE to use that I considered just scrapping the whole thing, and just letting nature take it’s course and not actively try to keep my supply up. However, my husband was very encouraging to me, and it was very important to both of us for our baby to get breastmilk as long as possible, and that meant that I needed to pump not only an extra time or two per day to keep my supply up, but also when the baby started sleeping through the night to keep things going.

So I ended up buying my very own Medela Symphony pump when I had two days left on my hospital rental. And it was the best decision ever. The Medela Symphony pump is so gentle on my poor sore chest, and it gets out ounces of milk where my InStyle was just struggling. I LOVE my Medela Symphony pump.

Of course, the main (and only that I can think of) drawback about the Medela Symphony pump is of course the price. However, if I didn’t go ahead and buy the Medela Symphony pump my milk probably would have dried up when my baby started sleeping through the night at 10 weeks old. And since he isn’t even quite 3 months left, that would have been about 9 months worth of formula that I would have had to buy. So I kind of figure that the cost if kind of a toss-up, I just had to pay for the pump up front instead of spreading the cost of formula out over the next 9 months. And of course, I can always sell this Medela Symphony pump when I’m done with it and try and re-coup some of my initial cost.

Very long story short – This is a wonderful pump that works awesomely and was a Godsend to my family. I would recommend this pump to any woman who is having any challenges with breastfeeding such as a NICU stay, a C-Section, poor latch, etc.

Review Of Dr. Whitening

I love to review products on Amazon. I am lucky enough to be offered quite a few products for free or at a huge discount to test and review.

Here is my Amazon review of Dr. Whitening for teeth:

I received this doctor whitening kit in the mail from Amazon last week. I have used it a few times, and so far I am happy with the results. Teeth whitening is an area that I have experimented with in the past, I have tried whitening strips, I have tried whitening gels, of course I have tried whitening toothpaste. However, usually things ended in my teeth and gums being too sensitive to continue.

Using this unique system by Dr. Whitening is different in its design and how you apply it. The directions say that it’s most effective for coffee and tea stains, which is where all of my tooth discoloration comes from, and I could tell a very small difference after just one use.

Each kit comes with twelve uses, and if you use them all within a two week time period you should see some real results, better than you will see on my video from my first use.

This product is easy to use as you will see on my video, and super convenient to take traveling on the go. It’s very difficult to open the blue holder to replace the whitening strip., I had to use tweezers to pry it apart.

The grammatical errors and such on the pamphlet really were halarious!! Example: they substituted “plague” for “plaque”!!!

Included below are before and after pictures, and I will also attach a “first impressions” video as well.
