Mom's Choice Awards® Names Best Products & Services of April 2019
Allison Edwards, author of the best-selling book Why Smart Kids Worry, gives a glimpse into the ways worry whispers to young minds, and offers a powerful tool all children can use to silence those fears in her book Worry Says What? Worry and anxiety are currently the top mental health issues among children and teens. Children have a number of worries throughout childhood that will come and go. The problem is not with the worries themselves, but that children believe the worries to be true. With a relatable story and beautiful artwork, Worry Says What? will help children (and adults) flip their thinking when anxious thoughts begin and turn them into powerful reminders of all they are capable of accomplishing.
Elvie Pump is the world's first silent wearable breast pump. Elvie Pump is a complete departure from existing pump technology, putting women at the center of the design process to create an entirely new pumping experience that offers more freedom and mobility. The truly hands-free pump gives women the flexibility to go about their daily routine while pumping, without worrying about cords, wardrobe changes or the undignified sound of traditional electric breast pumps. Elvie's differentiated technology means the pump is silent. Worn under clothing, Elvie Pump offers unprecedented discretion when pumping, soundlessly collecting milk in the self-contained pump. Elvie Pump connects to a free smartphone app, allowing women to view real-time milk volume and track their pumping history for each breast. Elvie Pump uses proprietary technology to detect the amount of milk in the bottle, enabling it to identify when the bottle is full and automatically pause the pump. Users can also control the pump from their phone, avoiding the need to fiddle with buttons on the pump inside their bra.
