3 Hot Selling Father’s Day Gift Ideas for 2018


Sponsored by Everything Tech Gear

Is it Father’s Day again? It’s tough to come up with a great gift idea every year, and, honestly, how many different kinds of coffee mugs does does he really need? Never fear, here are 3 new products going viral in 2018 that make the perfect Father’s Day gift:

1. Retro inspired video games iPhone Case




If Dad is a 90’s guy, there is a good chance he spent a lot of time playing hand-held video games. This retro inspired video game iPhone case will allow him to keep a piece of his glory days with him at all times. The case comes with a separate battery and is preloaded with classic games from the 90’s.


2. Portable Solar Powered Phone Charger



This small, portable, waterproof, solar powered phone charger clips onto a backpack, belt, tent, or anywhere the sun shines. The problem with most portable chargers is that you need to remember to charge them. This powerful 10,000 MAH battery can charge a phone up to 3 times, and the solar panel allows it to continually charge itself whenever it is exposed to sunlight. Great for outdoor activities, emergency preparation, and traveling.

3. The Everything Portable Lantern



Light up the night with this all-in-one camping lantern. This device folds up to easily stow in a backpack or give it a twist to expand into a super powerful LED lantern.  Recharge during the day with the built in solar panel, and the battery can be used as a portable phone charger. The perfect gift for the outdoorsman who still needs to charge his phone.



Make sure to spoil him this Father’s Day with love… and maybe a thing or two from this list! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads!

Dads, Sons and Competition


We’ve all seen it–what started as a little friendly competition between elementary aged boys turns into a full scale war and ends with tears–lots of them. This is an age where it’s hard to teach the fact that “we’re just having fun”, that life is not always about winning; one must enjoy the ride. This article came about because a dad wrote in to Breezy Mama--he was organizing a “friendly” kick ball tournament, and instead of enjoying the game, his 8-year-old son was out to WIN, and when things didn’t go that way, he lost it. How, the dad wondered, do we handle this? How do we teach our boys that’s about effort and good attitude? Breezy Mama turned to Dr. Ronald Levant, a professor of psychology at The University of Akron and the nation’s top expert on the psychology of men, for some answers.

How do I let my son know that I’m (dad) not disappointed when he’s not getting first place?

Convey to your son that sports are not just about winning and losing, but about how you played the game. I think the best way to do this is [Read more…]

LA Fitness Bans Mom From Breastfeeding in Locker Room

Baby banned from LA Fitness Locker Room

Monique Golueke’s 9 month old and 2 year old sons.

When Monique Golueke was exercising at an Oceanside, California, LA Fitness last week, she was told her sons were having trouble settling down in the child care area. After collecting her 2 year old and her 9 month old baby from the “Kids Klub,” she took her two young boys to the women’s locker room, realizing she needed to breastfeed her baby. What followed has many of us mamas in disbelief. Breezy Mama shares her story.

After breastfeeding your baby in an LA Fitness, an employee told you that you weren’t allowed to feed your child in the women’s locker room and escorted you out. What happened next?

Are Dads Better Than Moms?


Yes, I’m aware that you read that headline and spit out your coffee with part disbelief and part laughter. How could Breezy Mama ever imply such a notion? In fact, I have read a few articles lately saying how the care-free parenting approach stereotypical with fathers can benefit children in the long run and those raised by a stay at home dad have an advantage over those children stuck with us uptight, play by the rules moms. For real? Turning to Child and Family Psychotherapist Dr. Fran Walfish, I just had to get to the bottom of this obvious rubbish… kidding… kind of.

A few articles have come out in the press comparing moms to dads lately, saying dads are more care-free in their parenting. For example, dads don’t mind if a child gets muddy, which, in theory allows them to explore and use their imagination. Meanwhile, a mom might stereotypically encourage the same child to slow down, not get hurt and not to ruin their outfit, which, in theory, teaches them to be cautious and to care for things. What are the advantages to both types of parenting?

I agree that [Read more…]

How Rob Reiner Came Out From His Father’s Shadow

Morgan Freeman and Rob Reiner

Continuing on with our Magic of Belle Isle interviews, Breezy Mama‘s Melissa Ota had the opportunity to sit down with legendary director, Rob Reiner, who she found to be one amazingly cool guy (as did everyone else on the Magic of Belle Isle set).

From Melissa:

Renowned Hollywood director, actor, and writer, Rob Reiner, was shockingly normal!  His praises have been sung for movies like, The Princess Bride, Stand by Me, When Harry Met Sally, and A Few Good Men.  With an impressive resume and the candor of an old friend, Rob divvied out life anecdotes in nearly every response. In the current film, The Magic of Belle Isle, Reiner continues to inspire audiences with a positive underlying message to embrace life regardless of its difficulties.

So you mentioned a little bit in the press release . . . what do you want people to walk away from this film thinking or feeling?
Well, a similar kind of feeling that they had when they walked away from [Read more…]

How To Tell If A Bump On The Head Is Serious

Every parent understands why there should be no more monkeys jumping on the bed… but when should mama call the doctor if they bump their head? All making myself giggle aside, now that my twins are walking, the bumps and bruises are visiting often. And then of course there are my three big kids – at least one of who gets a “strawberry” (that would be my three year old today) once a week or so. Breezy Mama turned to Dr. Vincent Iannelli– a pediatrician and author of The Everything Father’s First Year Book — to find out when a child bumps their head (on a toy, the dining room table….again…falling backwards, etc.), when to call 911, when it’s safe just to call the pediatrician, signs to be cautious of and how to treat a minor bump on the head.

Under what circumstances after a child bumps their head should a parent dial 911?

A parent should seek immediate medical attention if their child has [Read more…]
