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!

All of their products are vegan and cruelty-free!

Because they want the best for our families, their products are also free of:  Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Sulfates, Parabens, Synthetic Colors, TEA, DEA, Silicons, PEGS, Dairy, Egg, Oat, Lactoperoxidase, Citrus Seed Extract, GMOs, Triclosan, and Synthetic Dyes.

“Wash With Water is dedicated to crafting all-natural, organic skin and hair products. All of their award-winning, made-in-the-USA products are created using only ingredients chosen with the utmost care.”

The products are made using Moroccan Argan oil and Calendula so their products are ultra-gentle, and hypoallergenic. They are perfect for the most sensitive skin

I received the biG kiD best hair day set, biG kiD buBble bAth, and their biG kiD buG rePellEnt. My kids love bathtime and I couldn’t have been more excited. Bath time isn’t just washing up for us. It’s time to wind down, wash off the stress of the day, learn, play, and relax to get ready for bed.

We loved all three of these products! They are top of the line for a reason.

biG kiD best hair day set – This set is great for children and babies alike. I felt comfortable using it on my almost 3 year old and my 1 year old.

The shampoo was extremely gentle and didn’t create too many suds. It didn’t leave their hair dry or oily. My kids have very curly hair, so protecting their natural oils is extremely important. The scent for both products in the set is a very gentle citrus.

The conditioner has a pump that comes with it to make it easier to use. This conditioner was perfect for my son who has curly hair, but it is still pretty fine. With my daughter, who has very thick curls, I felt like I couldn’t get enough conditioner on her head to get the same result. In my opinion, it probably doesn’t have the correct formula of oils to saturate coarse hair. Her hair is a lot of work and I don’t hold it against a brand if the product doesn’t work. Finding the perfect products for her are still a work in progress and we have been using products for adult natural hair. If any of our readers have suggestions, feel free to comment! My son’s hair looks like a little doll’s though. Silky and perfect little curls forming without any work and detangling on my part! It is great! I am so thankful to have found something that tames his little flyaways and baby hair.

The set will run you about $40 for two 8 oz bottles. Amazon usually has it a few dollars cheaper.41SytRcZFVL.jpg

buBble bAth – My kids both adore bubble baths. It just makes bath time so much more fun! When else are you allowed to cover your sibling from head to toe in something and not get into trouble for it? There is barely any scent and it’s a light fresh “baby” scent. You do have to suds up the water yourself to create the bubbles, because there are no chemicals or additives to do it for you. I did like that they bubbles lasted the entire time the kids were in the tub, unlike some other organic bubble baths I have tried that go flat within a minute or so. An 8oz bottle runs around $17.

biG KiD buG rePellEnt – I was extremely excited about this. At the end of summer and beginning of fall, the kids tend to roll around in leaves and we stay out later for bon fires, so you need something to keep bugs away! Even though we need to protect ourselves from bugs bites, I hate all the chemicals that are in most sprays, deet especially! You can read more here. Like all of their products, it’s all natural. Instead of using harsh chemicals, it is made with eucalyptus and lemongrass essential oils. You kind of end up smelling like a citronella candle, but it’s fresh and my husband and I even used it on ourselves!  A 4oz bottle is $16.95.31og7xuthll-_sl300_

The biggest downfall with these products is the price. The brand is high quality, but not much higher than others that I have found in stores in my area. You can only find these online and they’re not in everyone’s budget. Even though they are pricey, I will definitely be purchasing the bug repellent again!

Wash with Water is based out of South Carolina. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram for updates and new products!

Babymoov Lovenest {Review}


Before bringing home baby from the hospital, you’re told that putting baby to sleep on their back is the safest sleeping position. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends back sleeping for babies newborn to twelve months old. But spending mostBabymoov_logo1 of their time lying on their backs, it can cause a flat head, also known as Plagiocephaly or flat head syndrome. The weight of baby’s head almost always lays in the same position, awake or asleep, which causes the flat head. If baby’s head is found to be too flat, his or her pediatrician may recommend a helmet to round out baby’s head. I’ve had several friends whose children have needed a helmet and they’ve worked wonderfully! But what can you do to prevent the flat head before the need of a helmet?

With over 20 years, Babymoov a comprehensive range called COSY: unique concepts for comfortable sleep and launched the Lovenest, a heart-shaped headrest that prevents flat head syndrome! Created and patented by Pediatrician Dr. Manuel Maidenberg, the Lovenest is the original ergonomic headrest. It’s tilt and special shape guarantee even distribution of pressure across the baby’s skull, thereby preventing the risk of a flat head. Made from bre8914_2athable cotton spandex, the Lovenest is comfortable and adapts to all rockers, bouncers and swing. It can be used from birth, as baby’s head is supported so that its weight is spread out evenly, preventing it from being flattened.

I have been using the Lovenest ever since Babymoov sent their product for me to review about 3 weeks ago and I’m really happy with it. My little one doesn’t mind it one bit, it’s really soft. I do not put it in her crib while asleep, per guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics, as nothing is to be in the crib to prevent the risk of SIDS. When she’s awake playing on the floor under her activity mat or in her mamaRoo, I use the Lovenest to prevent her head from getting flat.

I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars, only because it can’t be used in the crib or bassinet and that is where baby is lying on his or her back the most. But it does work and I think using it outside of the crib when baby is lying down will certainly prevent a flat head which is what parents want in the end. If you or your pediatrician notice baby’s head i8706263294568ms getting a little flat, perhaps give the Lovenest a try to round it back out before it possibly gets worse and a helmet is needed. It’s also available in 3 beautiful colors: red, ivory and taupe and also comes with a lifetime warranty

CeraVe Baby {Review}

groupI love finding and trying new baby care products, especially lotions and washes, as I want to find the best and healthiest products for my infant and toddler. For myself, I love CeraVe products. They make my skin feel so good and I love knowing they’re not loaded with harmful chemicals and parabens. On a recent shopping trip I saw that CeraVe now makes baby products and I was excited to try them on my 11 week old. I reached out to Valeant Consumer Products (who developed the CeraVe Baby skin care products) and they were kind enough to send me all of the baby products in their line to try. The baby line was developed with pediatric dermatologists to help protect and maintain baby’s delicate skin barrier. All of the CeraVe Baby products have been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance and are hypoallergenic and fragrance-, paraben-, gluten-, sulfate- and phthalate-free.

CeraVe Baby Sunscreen SPF 45 // Retail price: 3.5 oz tube – $16.99

Although my baFullSizeRender (4)by isn’t in the sun quite yet, I was eager to try the sunscreen on my 3.5 year old. So far this year, every sunscreen I have tried has made her break out in a rash which has never happened before. And because she is always outside playing in the summer, I needed to find something that could protect her but also not make her break out and needing a dose of Benedryl each night before bed. CeraVe Baby Sunscreen worked! No rash, no sunburn after several hours in the sun. If she plays in water, I will need to reapply every 80 minutes to make sure she was covered. The lotion is white and thick enough to know here you are applying which is key if you don’t want to miss any spots. It’s formulated with natural sourced ingredients: 7.4% titanium dioxide, 11.4% zinc oxide, soothing aloe and essential ceramides to help repair and restore the protective barrier. Available at: CVS, Walgreens, DuaneFullSizeRender (3) Reed, Wal-Mart, Meijer, Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Amazon.

CeraVe Baby Moisturizing Cream // Retail price: 5  oz tube – $9.99

This heavenly, thick moisturizing cream is the bee’s knees! It keeps baby’s skin moisturized and protected for up to 24 hours and is formulated for baby’s with sensitive skin or eczema. My 9 week old doesn’t have sensitive skin or eczema but I want to use a product that is gentle on her delicate skin and this fits the bill. She feels so soft and smooth after applying and I love that I don’t have to reapply several times throughout the day, once is enough! It has been designed to use on the face and body and utilizes a patented Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE) technology, which allows for a controlled and steady release of ingredients over time. Available at: CVS, Meijer, Rite Aid, Babies R US, Buy Buy Baby and Amazon.

CeraVe Baby Wash & Shampoo // Retail price: 8 oz tube – $9.99

FullSizeRender (5)My 9 week old gets a bath every other day and almost always has some (gross) formula trapped in her neck rolls (she’s a chubby one) and I love that the baby wash & shampoo gets her squeaky clean, smelling good and keeps her skin hydrated. It’s so gentle on baby’s hair and skin and is fragrance and tear free so it protects her little eyes as well. It contains three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and vitamins that work to lock in and restore moisture in the skin. Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and dyes leaving baby with nothing but healthy hair and skin! Available at: drugstores, mass market retailers and specialty baby retailers nationwide.

FullSizeRender (6)CeraVe Baby Moisturizing Lotion // Retail price: 8 oz pump – $9.99

I love CeraVe lotions so much and the baby lotion did not disappoint! It keeps baby’s skin so soft and hydrated for up to 24 hours which means less application and the bottle will last longer, in turn saving you money! As much as I love scented lotions, I love that this is fragrance free which is better for baby’s skin. It also temporarily relieves chafed, chapped and cracked skin so baby is always protected. Available at: drugstores, mass market retailers and specialty baby retailers nationwide.

CeraVe Baby Diaper Rash Cream // Retail price: 3 oz tube – $9.99

FullSizeRender (7)Luckily, my 9 week old hasn’t had many (if any) diaper rashes in her short life. I chalk it up to putting cream on her behind every single diaper change as a preventative measure. I love that it’s non-greasy but it’s thick and creamy without causing a sticky mess that most creams leave behind. A little goes a long way so the tube lasts a while. The cream contains dimethicone to help protect chafed skin, while also sealing out wetness. InvisableZinc works to sooth and prevent future diaper rashes. Available at: drugstores, mass market retailers and specialty baby retailers nationwide

If you love CeraVe products, you will love CeraVe Baby products! I am so impressed with the quality and effectiveness in every single product they offer. The sunscreen if for sure a daily staple in our household from now on. Well, they all are actually. It’s our new go-to line for shampoo, lotion and diaper cream.
