Best nursing cover for $1


**update - looks like these are sold out now.**

I swear I'm not turning this into a baby product blog - but this is such a great nursing cover and at an AMAZING price. Oslo Nursing Cover By Dria (Breastfeeding Poncho with Organic Modal Fabric, Grey and Black Stripes) - is normally $79.95, I remember I got mine on sale and paid $68, no joke.  But for the next 3 days (or until supplies last) they are selling these for $1 when you enter the promo code DOLLARDR at checkout.  I used this regularly when I was nursing my son, it can be used as a car seat canopy cover by tying the ends around you car seat, AND it's super light weight and small if you need to toss it in a bag.  Pair it with an Ergo carrier and you can nurse hands free, anywhere, because it also covers your back -which when I had a 4 and 2 year old running around was great, we could still do whatever we wanted to and not worry about me sitting down to feed the baby.  Buy this as a second cover, as a baby gift, as a trial, just buy it.  It's $1.  You've spent more on less.
Alternate color that also works is Solana Dria Nursing Cover (Breastfeeding Poncho with Organic Modal Fabric)

Fisher Price & Mattel Sale

Peeps, can I interrupt our normal subscribe & save feed to just tell you about the Deal of the Day at Amazon?  It's up to 40% off select Fisher-Price & Mattel items.   


One of my top 3 baby products of all time (have I mentioned I love baby products...) is the Fisher-Price Deluxe Newborn Vibrating Rock n' Play Sleeper, My Little Snugabunny - and the vibrating one isn't necessary.  But, since today it is down at the sale price for the normal one, you may as well get it.  Normally $74.99 for the vibrating one and right now it's $44.99, I bet these go fast.  Any new mom will love one of these.  It keeps them propped up a little, and cradles them like they are in mom's arms.


In terms of high chairs, I don't love this as an everyday use, but some people swear by it.  However, it's great to have to take to Grandma's and even better to use as a booster without the tray - which is how my 2-year old is using it now.  Fisher-Price Deluxe Booster Seat, Red/White - today is $17.99, which is the price it will go for on Black Friday at ToysRUs.  Save yourself that headache and grab it now.





Lastly, my girls love these Disney Princess Fairytale MagiClip Cinderella Fashion Bag little dolls.  The old ones are a rubber dress that always ripped.  These are now a clip that you pinch at the bottom and they can put it on themselves.  Normally a set like this is $9.99 at Target, today it is $6.59.  I love keeping one of these in my purse to hand to them and keep them occupied, but really my girls play with these all the time.  They are the 'babies' to their barbies.


These are only available today until supplies last so hustle over!

Amazon Prime Pantry

So, some of you may have heard that Amazon just launched a new program called Prime Pantry.  It's a companion to subscribe & save - it is not replacing their subscribe & save gig so don't stress it.  I thought I would give you a basic rundown on what it is and how you may benefit from it.

In a nutshell, Prime Pantry lets you have a 45lb box delivered for a flat delivery fee of $5.99.  They offer tons of items, but specialize in those items on the inside of the grocery store that typically won't be on subscribe and save because of the weight.  You order these boxes one at a time, it's not a subscription like the normal subscribe & save.  The fee applies every box and is an added perk to your Prime membership.

Some of the main benefits of Prime Pantry over subscribe & save is that you won't be buying in bulk. Imagine if you were going to the grocery store and anything you may want on the inside of the store (so excluding fresh items) is basically eligible.  The great news is that the prices on things are very reasonable, unlike most online grocery retailers.  In looking around the site I found that most of the items are the same cost as the grocery store or a little bit cheaper.  Amazon is also helpful and will tell you what percentage of the box your item is filling up so that you know how much you can cram into it.  Also, just like subscribe & save, they have Prime Pantry Coupons that you can use on lots of basic items.

Let me know what questions you have - I think the verdict for me is that it is a cool idea, but not something I will use regularly because of the $5.99 delivery fee.  But, when I was on bed rest when I was pregnant, or sick, or whatever the circumstance may be, you bet I would have loved something simple like this to use temporarily.

Here are some of my fav picks:

Diet Coke Can (12 Count, 12 Fl Oz Each) - these go on sale for 3/$12 at my grocery store fairly regularly.  But $3.64 for a 12 pack?  And no tax in most states?  That's pretty sweet.  Please bless that they bring in Dr. Pepper very soon so I can order that for my husband!
Happy Baby Organic, Stage 2, Simple Combos, Broccoli, Peas and Pear (8 Count, 3.5 Oz Each) - an 8 pack is $8.75 which is cheaper than Target, plus there is a $1.75 coupon bringing it down to $7.00 for 8 pouches.
Ortega Green Chiles, Diced, 4 Oz - ok it's not like I use diced green chiles that often - but my point is to show that their prices on canned goods are almost identical to my regular grocery store.  And these little guys don't even take up 1% of your box!
Crisco Pure Canola Oil, 48 Fl Oz - large bottle of oil for $3.18.
Tide HE Liquid Laundry Detergent, Original Scent, 100 Fl Oz - ever wondered why you can't get anything more than 50 ounces of Tide on subscribe & save?  It's a weight issue, too costly for them to ship.  Now they have 100 ounces.  Not a smoking price, but in a pinch, it's competitive with what you'd pay for it at the grocery store.
Beneful Dry Healthy Weight, 15.5 Pounds - I admit, I've never owned a dog, or really any pet for that matter - so I have no idea if this is a good price for pet food.  However, I'm sure you regulars do.  Here's a link for all of their pet products.
