The Little Things Matter – How Love Is In The Details

#LoveIsInTheDetails. This is the hashtag we’ve been using as part of my partnership with Philips Avent. As a mom, this resonates with me. I know that the little things matter.

I know that the little moments all add up and forge our relationships, drive our child’s growth, and create long-lasting bonds. I know those little details are all going to be memories one day, and I’ll eventually look back and miss those little moments. A hand to hold, a diaper that needs changing, an extra hug at bedtime. The little things.

Focus on The Little Moments

When I make the decision to use a product for my baby, this is why I want it to be a product I know will work, from a company I trust. I want to use products that are best for my baby so I can focus on those little moments and not worry about whether or not I’m making the right decisions on things. Things like how to feed my child shouldn’t be hard decisions. Philips Avent has been making it easy for a long time and the bottles are ones I recommend to anyone.

I’ve been using the Avent Classic Bottles for nine years now (that’s four kids), and the one-piece anti-colic system that is integrated into the nipple makes these bottles so easy to use and clean. Philips Avent is a name I trust, and the Classic Bottles have always worked well for us, making feeding time simple and enjoyable no matter who is feeding the baby.

When the Little Things Matter – For the Last Time

My youngest, now six months old, is getting to the point where he is almost able to hold his own bottle. I’m a little sad at the fact that he’s moved on from the Natural bottles that we use when I am primarily breastfeeding because this means that soon he won’t be using a bottle at all, and soon he’ll be walking and talking and — oh, all those little moments that happen when they are young!

Little Things Matter

My youngest rolling over to get his toy, he was so excited!

These will be the last little moments I get to experience so each one is a bit more emotional for me. #LoveIsInTheDetails really rings true, because I know these moments are not here long. Perhaps if I can slow time down and make them last just a bit longer……

    Those bottles are great, I believe I had some along the years. What a fun giveaway and super helpful for any parent of babies. Those memory making moments are worth investing in too, because the kids grow way too quickly!

    Enjoy them at this age! Before long they’ll be off to school, then a teen wanting nothing to do with you!

    You have to take the time to enjoy the little things. Before you know it you’ll blink and look and the kids will be grown.

  5. diane April 25, 2016 at 7:46 am #

    I am a firm believer in enjoying all the little things in life. Kids grow up way too fast to miss a single moment!

  6. Jeanette April 25, 2016 at 12:24 pm #

    Defiantly savor every day it goes faster than you think for sure. I miss those days with my kiddo.

  7. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle April 25, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    I totally get this one. The little things make it all worth it, and while it’s amazing to watch the kids grow up, when they hit those milestones, we see some of those little things pass by for the last time.

    Love Avent bottles! I used them with both of my boys. They grow up too fast. I have taken a crash course in “letting things go”!

    This is such a great brand! I am not a parent but I have a niece and nephew and this brand was our number one go to!

  10. JENN April 25, 2016 at 5:14 pm #

    I tried so many different bottles with my dd4 when she was a baby. Avent was the only one she would take! I loved how easy it was to clean and use.

  11. Jamie April 25, 2016 at 5:40 pm #

    I doubt I’ll ever have another baby, so I’ll never get those late night feeding snuggles again. My girl would only take the Avent bottles and pacis.

  12. Inspiring Kitchen April 25, 2016 at 8:29 pm #

    My kids are all grown up and I miss those little things. Savor every moment because they grow up too fast.

    Ooooooooh! So adorable. Yes, savor the moments because they’ll be tweens and teens before you know it. Then they’ll be grown, but then you’ll have grandbabies so you can start all over again. LOL! 😉

  14. Crystal April 25, 2016 at 10:09 pm #

    Those are the bottles I used with my babies too. It was so easy having bottles that also worked with my pump.

  15. Lynndee April 26, 2016 at 9:51 am #

    This is heartwarming! 🙂 Little things do matter to me too. I always find joy in those little things.

    Avent were some of the products I used for my girls when they were babies. I love their brand! I know many other mothers that do as well. This is a great giveaway too!

  19. Ann Bacciaglia April 26, 2016 at 4:33 pm #

    I used these bottles when the kids were little. It is so important to focus on the little moments with your child. Time goes by so fast they are grown up before you know it.

    I used Avent bottles with both of my younger children. Love the design and style. So easy for them to hold too .

  22. Shauna April 27, 2016 at 9:10 am #

    You know, it really is in those small moments that memories are made. I remember sitting on my Dads lap while he read to me as a kid. No matter what he was doing he would take the time to do so. I love doing the same for my kids and love making every moment count.

  23. Travel Blogger April 27, 2016 at 11:54 am #

    My little guy is only two months behind yours. 🙁 They’re growing too quickly!

  24. Marielle April 28, 2016 at 11:56 am #

    That’s the brand that I use for both my son and now my daughter. I love how the bottles are to clean.

    We have tried these bottles before and my son really liked them. They were easy to clean also.

    My kids both loved their bottles! It’s so true, you need to cherish every moment!

  27. Dawn Lopez April 29, 2016 at 5:03 pm #

    Avent bottles are really great! I have more than a few friends who swear by them. Those sweet little moments do pass by quickly but every stage has it’s own neat “thing” to make up for it. 😉

    I miss when my girls were babies! These bottles are some of the best. Avent makes such great products for babies. I love many of them.

  30. Emma Spellman April 29, 2016 at 11:49 pm #

    I used Phillips with my last baby and I thought their bottles were amazing. My son will turn 2 in June it is so crazy how fast they grow.

    All my kids are grown ups now, so the little milestones that give me joy nowadays are from my grandchildren. It seems like they are growing up so fast, I wish they could just stay little cuddly babies for a longer time.

  32. natalie z April 30, 2016 at 9:40 am #

    I have 3 boys and have lived by this philosophy! Of course my baby is now 6. However I remember relying on avent when I returned back to work. The right bottle like avent can make the transition from breast to bottle so much easier!

  33. Dawn April 30, 2016 at 10:12 am #

    little things def mean a lot. also i watch how fast my friends kiddies are growing and its amazing.

  34. Christy Garrett April 30, 2016 at 1:11 pm #

    I love the little moments. Especially, snuggling with baby. I breastfed mine so I didn’t use a ton of bottles. These look nice though.

    I have 4 kids, and with my older two boys, I miss this so much. They remember all the little things I did with them when they were little.

  38. Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey May 1, 2016 at 6:32 pm #

    When it comes to our children or family, I absolutely agree that even the littlest of things matter. Time flies so fast and every moment is a gift.

    I love Avent bottles! I nursed my babies, but when they did use bottles, the only ones they would take were the Avent ones. Love them!

    I used Avent bottles when my kids were babies. Now, they are all grown up and I definitely miss the things they did when they were babies.

  47. Tammy May 3, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    I loved Avent bottles too. I bought them to use with my kids, but most of them would not take any bottle at all. Oh well, we tried! We were able to use the lids for our Avent sippy cups though! Love how they make interchangeable parts.

  48. HilLesha May 4, 2016 at 6:57 pm #

    Wonderful campaign! The Avent Classic Bottles were always my go-to brand when my children were babies.
