Flying Squirrel. A New Kind Of Sleep Sack by Sleeping Baby. *GIVEAWAY!*

sleepingbabyburritobuzz
…notice blanket all the way at the end of his bed!

Every night I sneak into our baby’s room to re-tuck him back in and ensure his room is warm enough. Some nights I used to even turn the heat up in the house just to make sure he was warm. The winter months are brutal here in Ohio and our little one makes it worse by NEVER staying covered up. I always thought sleep sacks, and ‘toddler sleeping bags’ were unnecessary and ridiculous looking. A cozy fuzzy blanket is MUCH cuter. We are well past the stage of not being allowed to have extra bedding in his bed, so swaddles and sacks shouldn’t be needed, right? WRONG. BK#2 HATES being covered. He appeases us, snuggles up with his lovey, lets us cover him with an adorable Aden & Anias dream blanket, and then the second that we walk out of his room he pushes it to the opposite end of his crib. Really kid?!?!

Thus, began the search for the perfect toddler sleeping solution. I really wanted a way to help my baby sleep without waking, because he was cold, but he is much too old for traditional swaddles. I found some awesome sleep sacks, but the fact that they are a sack makes him pretty mad. He was getting used to it, but I kept on searching to find something to keep him warm AND happy.

I FOUND THE BEST SOLUTION FOR ALL AGES!our-brands-zipadeezip.jpg

Sleeping Baby has the perfect products for infants transitioning out of swaddles, for toddlers like mine refusing to stay covered and warm at night, for preschoolers needing a sleep solution for nap time at school, even teethers,  and necklaces for mom!

Sleeping Baby is AMAZING COMPANY with an even better story. They truly have a heart for their customers and LOVE what they do! They started their company making something to transition their daughter out of the traditional swaddle and created the revolutionary Zipadee-Zip, that was discovered and aired on Shark Tank! I could go on and on about this couple, because they are truly an inspiration to all parents to follow your dreams and to do what is best for you and your family, but I really want to talk about the FLYING SQUIRREL so I encourage you to read all about it here!Sleeping-Baby-522x348.jpg

WHAT IS A FLYING SQUIRREL?FS_Woodlands_Blue_Front_large.png

  • They are an extension of the Zippy because they’re the same basic shape, but have option openings/covers for the hands and feet.
  • The convertible hand and foot covers (like a new born onsie’s optional mitten flip overs )are to  to keep your little one extra cozy and warm without the need for socks. Seriously, ADORABLE! BK#2 hated the mitten option on his hands, but it gave me all the feels remembering  the itty bitty baby onsies. I am going to keep trying and maybe he will indulge me and let me cover his hands!
  • It comes in sizes 2T-5T.
  • Fleece or SUPER soft cotton option. We received the cotton material. – I suggest the cotton for spring and the fleece for winter months. (I put a set of PJ’s under the cotton material, because it wasn’t as heavy for winter as I normally would use.)
  • At LEAST a dozen prints for each gender, and many are gender neutral!sleepingbabyburritobuzzzippersleepingbabyburritobuzzzipper2
  • Zipper coverings! The top of the zipper is always enclosed and there is a layer of fabric covering the zipper on the inside to ensure you don’t snag your baby or their clothes.
  • They run big and look at little baggy on your child. That is how they are supposed to be! Don’t worry! You want your baby to be able to move around freely in their bed AND if gives the product more longevity! All parents know that baby gear lasts for no time at all.
  • They wash up wonderfully! They stay super soft and buttery, and the print doesn’t fade one bit!
  • Fairly priced at $36.95 . This might sound a little high for “pj’s”, but for sleepers and sleep sacks its just right and around the same price as SIMILAR products on the market. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE LIKE THIS DESIGN AVAILABLE!

Aden+Anais Dream Blanket {Review}

You might already know about Aden+Anais, because BurritoBuzz moms love their products. We did a review not long ago on their toddler bedding, but I want to share my new favorite love with you all: The Aden+Anais Dream Blanket.

Their super soft muslin dream blanket is four layers of rayon, made from bamboo. The blanket is breathable, but still thick enough to be plush and warm. The quality stitching keeps your blanket from falling apart like many other blankets do, particullarly when being machine washed over and over again.

I was thrilled to throw this into my son’s crib, knowing that it’s a safe product for him (he’s now 16 months, so well beyond the age of keeping items out of the crib.) This is a good starter blanket for him. The designs are truly beautiful, and I chose the Midnight – Stylo. What I like most about this blanket is how easy it is to quickly fold up and transport– it isn’t bulky, so it easily fits into my diaper bag.
The price point is a little high for the Dream Blanket, at right around $60. The cost of most muslin products, especially of such good quality, is generally slightly higher than a typical blanket.
Many thanks to Aden + Anais for always providing quality products.

Aden + Anais Baby Clothes {Review}

Aden + Anais is famous for their amazing natural muslin blankets. Seriously, they make the softest swaddles and blankets I have ever felt. They are so popular, I bet if you have ADENBYAA-01had a baby shower, you most likely were gifted at least one Aden + Anais product. Over the years, A + A really expanded their product line, from bedding for babies and toddlers to bibs and burp cloths to skin care products to towels and washcloths (check out all of their products here). Every single one of their products have left me feeling nothing but impressed. But my favorite product they have released is their baby apparel. Yes, the muslin fabric that makes their blankets so absolutely fabulous now makes up their beautiful baby clothes! We reached out to A + A a few weeks ago and they kindly sent me a few outfits for me to try (and ultimately fall in love with) on my 3 month old and review them for Burrito Buzz.

I was sent a beautiful romper, a short sleeve kimono onesie, smock top and ruffle bloomers from their little girl’s line, but there are several other pieces, including a one IMG_5855piece short sleeve kimono, long sleeve kimono onesie, jersey pants, muslin pants, hoodie, tunic, tank top bodysuit and long sleeve zipper one piece. All of their clothes are available in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months (hopefully the line will be available in bigger sizes soon so toddlers can enjoy them!) and fit true to size in my opinion. I washed the clothing as soon as I received them and they of course came out of the dryer even softer, as they will with each wash thanks to the awesome muslin. The muslin is breathable which is definitely needed during hot and humid Ohio summers and because my baby is a little furnace – she’s always so warm. The romper’s straps are also adjustable which I love, so baby can wear it all summer without outgrowing. There is a little bit of spandex (turning their muslin into a super fabric!) added to the fabric to allow for some stretch which is the perfect amount for always-on-the-move babies.

Caring for A + A clothing is super easy. Wash with like colors in warm water, tumble dry on low. There’s no need to iron or dry clean. Easy peasy! They also offer the FullSizeRender (29)cutest prints! From bright stripes in pink or blue, to bright stars in pink or blue, little hearts and butterflies and a gray star – the perfect gender neutral print. There are several other prints and a few solids to chose from and all of them are simply beautiful!

If I could, I would give Aden + Anais clothing a 6 out of 5 stars. My expectations have been exceeded. The quality is superb but it is to be expected with such an amazing company. I feel like the pieces are timelessly stunning and will definitely be saved to pass down to my girls’ children and hopefully their children. The one and only problem I can find is the price. The pieces range from $14.95 (bloomers) to $34.95 (hoodie) which is expensive to me. I’m a stay-at-home mom with 2 little ones trying to survive on one income, so it would be very hard to outfit my little one in A + A clothing on a regular basis.. unless they are on sale because I live for sales!

Aden+Anais Toddler Bedding: Liam the Brave

81ur7Y0U1EL._SY550_
My son is finally a year old, which is a huge milestone for bed time! We kept Lucas’ crib free of any bedding/extras for the entire first year. After he turned one we got the go-ahead from the pediatrician to give him a blanket. (In all reality, he moves around enough in his crib that it’s rarely on him anyway.)

I really wanted to find something that was breathable since he still smashes his face up against his bedding. I love Aden+Anais, and their muslin products, and Lucas got the Liam the Brave set for his birthday. It’s a full bed in a bag, with a crib sheet attached to a thin muslin sheet, a thicker comforter, and a pillow. All were great quality.

The bed in a bad can be found on Amazon for between $70-$80. A little pricey, but because they 91bNuj6827L._SX522_have such a good reputation, I thought it was worth it to have some safe, quality bedding. It has washed very well, with no fraying.

The pillow is exceptionally thinner than it appears in the photo (so thin, that I actually thought it was part of a sheet at first.) Again, my LO doesn’t keep his head on it right now anyway… and it’s breathable, so I don’t have to worry about him bunching it up. It’s a good introductory pillow, but he’ll eventually need one a little thicker, I’m sure.

 

I highly recommend Aden+Anais for your toddler’s first bedding set!
