October is National Children's Health Month

October is National Children's Health Month, and in our family that is important because we have a lot of littles running around. Keeping them healthy and safe is always paramount, so I am glad there is a month set aside each year to remind us that awareness should always be in the forefront of our minds when it comes to protecting our children.

There are many ways to protect children, including physical and mental safety, cyber security, and so much more. There are also other smaller but equally important ways, every day ways like nutrition, monitoring, and instilling a sense of gratitude and thankfulness in our children that will help to serve them for a lifetime. The following sponsors are doing their part to help with National Children's Health Month, so I'm helping to share their products; my way of showing my gratitude.

Angelcare | AC527 Baby Breathing Monitor with video
Dependable, trusted, and beautifully designed baby care essential. Now available online at Amazon and soon launching on Buy Buy Baby and more.

    Wishing Pixies App

    More than a toy, app, or game, it’s a parenting tool that helps families create and reinforce positive and healthy behaviors for their child and raise emotionally strong, mindful, and confident children who believe in the power of positive thoughts.  
    • Children use the mobile app and parents use a responsive website to manage the interactions with their children acting as the pixie doll. Parents can assign daily affirmations, tasks, and meditations for children to complete to receive pixie dust that can be used to earn a reward.
    • Pixies come in two versions - Cailin (girl) and Gasur (boy)
    • What started this unique idea? One mom who pretended to be the tooth fairy with her child, writing notes back and forth. She learned more about her child than she ever would have as her mother. This is why her favorite feature is the chat section, where parents can talk to there kids as if they are the Pixies.
    • The pixies and app must be used for the full effect, or else it can be difficult for kids to stay engaged long term. Here is a video to help visually explain.
    • Website
    • Following your purchase, an adoption certificate will be immediately sent to your email. Edit, personalize, and print!

    Thank you to those who are taking part in helping to promote National Children's Health Month. The more who do, the better, and our parents (and children!) appreciate that you do.


    1. Every month should be National (and International) Children's Health Month. Sadly none of your images loaded for me.

    2. The monitor would sure help many a new parent not be as paranoid. The app is a great idea too. Health sure is #1 for the kiddos.

    3. People should always be thinking about this instead of just in a month. They need so much!

    4. Your granddaughter is just beautiful. All of these are great products to use for a baby!
