Mom Select Swag Suite

I was excited when Mom Select contacted me about participating in the Swag Suite reviews. They said they would send me some products for me to try and they asked that I review at least three of the products. I was super excited when I opened the box I received and found this loot inside!

I was also very excited to find that it contained some products that I'm already a fan of. So, I thought I'd go ahead and tell you about those.

First, up is Hyland's Calms Forte'. I am a huge fan of the Hyland's products! Calms Forte' is a sleep aide, sort of.. It is made with all natural ingredients like Chamomille. I'm going to be honest, this product is not going to be a replacement for a prescription sleep medication. It won't even do the job of Benadryl. It works more like a relaxant. It's a great option for dealing with nervous tension or if you don't have the full 8 hours to dedicate to sleep. My sleep problems seem to be more of a an inability to wind down. It seems that after a long day of work that is physically taxing, my body is tired but my mind is running wild. Calms Forte seems to do the job of calming, hence the name. The thing that I like the most about it is: since it doesn't leave the groggy effect that sleep medication leaves, when I wake in the wee hours of the morning, thinking about my to do list for the next day, I can even take it at that time of the morning and still wake up without that drugged feeling. There is also a formula for children. Works like a charm..And, if you are a couponer, there is a coupon in the 6/1/09 Smart Source packet for a dollar off that doesn't expire until 9/1/09

Another product included was Hyland's Teething Gel. I've used this as well as the Hyland's teething tablets. Both products are absolutely wonderful. It took me by surprise the first time I used them but just a couple of minutes after using either of these items, my children were sleeping soundly.. I have yet to try a Hyland's product that I don't love! You can print a coupon for teething gel HERE

There was one other Hyland's product that I have yet to try and that is the Hyland's Cough and Cold medicine. And from the looks of the runny nose that Chloe started yesterday, it looks like I might have a review on that soon too.

More great products coming soon!
