Mixie Baby Formula Mixing Baby Bottle: “The First Fix-Now-Mix-Later Formula Bottle for Babies on the Go
Keep Mixie prepped ahead of time — it’s the only 2-in-1 formula bottle that makes it possible to be ready for a feeding morning, noon or night. Put formula powder into the patented, airtight compartment. Fill bottle with water. When baby’s hungry, press the button on the bottle bottom and shake while the agitator does the mixing. It’s so easy, and it’s ready in a heartbeat.”
With two children that suffer from eczema and sensitive skin, you can guarantee that I am prepared for baby #3 to have similar type skin as his/her siblings. Unfortunately my children inherited their skin conditions from me and I have learned quite a bit over the years as to what works and what doesn’t. Never… ever use anything that is simply a lotion because it will cause more damage than good. I remember a recent incident (at my in laws) where my three year old was complaining about some dry skin on his back. His grandma immediately grabbed some of her lotion and proceeded to put it on him. Not even 10 seconds later he was screaming in agony, as the lotion was causing him pain. As a person that has suffered with eczema for years, I know the pain and irritation that regular lotions can cause and had to instantly flush his skin to get the lotion off. It was a great lesson for grandma, but not something that I would want a newborn to have to endure. That is why I am encouraging my fans with babies on the way to make sure that they are providing their newborn babies with the best skincare products out there, because you don’t know until its too late if your baby has sensitive skin. The saying “It’s better to be safe than sorry” applies here greatly. I am excited to introduce to you a brand which offers amazing skincare products for those of us with sensitive skin. I just love the two products they provided me for review and can’t tell express enough to you how wonderful they are. They provide immediate moisture to my children’s eczema, causing them no pain whatsoever. They also do not leave a greasy feeling after, which is something that my children really appreciate. I am greatly looking forward to using these on the new baby and knowing it will be safe for his/her skin, no matter what his/her skin type may be.
This baby bottle is by far one of the most convenient and ingenious ones I have yet to discover! The Mixie allows you to store formula in a small compartment at the bottom of the bottle. You then fill the bottle with bottle and put it away for later. When you are out running errands or woken up by a crying baby in the middle of the night, it will only take you seconds to have the bottle ready. You simply press the bottom of the bottle and the container on the inside will pop open. All you have to do is shake the bottle and it is ready to go. How amazing is that!? I am just in awe of this product and can think of so many places it will be useful once the baby is here.
