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!

Noodle & Boo Skin Care {Review}

If you haven’t noticed (or are a first time reader, in that case – hello!), BurritoBuzz loves finding and sharing new skin care products for baby. I look for products that are hypoallergenic for baby’s delicate skin and with no harmful chemicals. I recently found a fantastic, luxurious skin care line for babies and for mamas that I have to share! Noodle & Boo sent me several samples to try with my four month old and I am in love with every single one of them!

NandBlogo_2

Noodle & Boo is a skin care line designed developed specifically for ultra-sensitive skin. The founder Christine Burger worked with holistic and natural healthcare providers to create products that nourish, protect and replenish delicate and sensitive skin. The ingredients used in Noodle & Boo products are certified organic and derived from natural resources. I love that the products are made in the USA and are manufactured in a pharmaceutical-like environment so the quality is superb. Noodle & Boo also has a complete line just for those with super sensitive skin and eczema.

You can rest easy knowing the products are free from a slew of harmful ingredients:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Sulfates
  • PPG’
  • Dyes
  • GMO’s
  • Triclosan
  • Formaldehyde Donors
  • Bisphenol A (BPA)
  • Essential Oilsgift_newborn_deluxe_detail

The first thing I noticed (and loved) was the smell of the products. It’s the epitome of what a baby smells like. They somehow bottled the smell of a newborn and it is fantastic. I received four amazing samples, Noodle & Boo Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Bodywash (8oz for $14), Super Soft Lotion (8oz for $14), Ultimate Ointment (2.5oz for $15) and Baby Balm (4.5oz for $16). I love all of the products I got to try. The hair and body wash gets my little babe clean, even in all of her rolls (and there are a lot!) and keeps her smelling great. The lotion keeps her skin hydrated, soft and smooth all day. She’s had a few dry patches on her elbows, I’m really hoping it’s not eczema (it’s not bad, so I don’t know if it is or not) and I applied the Baby Balm which provides long-lasting moisture and comforts irritated skin. I love that it’s super thick and after using for a few days, the dry patches have subsided for the most part! The Ultimate Ointment is perfect for diaper rashes, dry skin or eczema as gift_big_sister_brother_detailwell. It creates a moisture repellant to promote natural healing of rashes. I use it for the rash on my little one’s neck. Her rolls are trapping moisture and the Ohio heat has caused a heat rash. The ointment has helped tremendously.

I love Noodle & Boo products and I would love to try more, especially products for mama! The only issue, is the price. This is a luxury brand (so many celebrities swear by Noodle & Boo, check out their testimonials and who loves Noodle & Boo here!) so the cost is a little high but totally doable if you want high quality products. Be sure to check out Noodle & Boo’s website here. They seriously have so many awesome products to offer for both baby and mom!super_soft_lotion_detail

For Sticker Lovers: Pipsticks {Review}

My almost four year old is obsessed with two things: getting mail and stickers. Every time I check the mailbox she asks if anything came for her. When I say no, she gets so upset. She gets our junk mail and I even write her little letters and put them in the mailbox for her. ItFullSizeRender (63) works for now because she doesn’t recognize that it’s my handwriting yet. So when I came across Pipsticks, I had to reach out to them! They were kind enough to send my Stella one of their monthly sticker packs.

Pipsticks is a monthly subscription of stickers for adults and children alike. There are two tiers for both kids and adults.

The Kid’s Club Classic offers 15+ sheets of stickers, 1 postcard and 4 sheets of craft paper for $14.95. The Kid’s Club Petite offers 7+ sheets of stickers and 2 sheets of craft paper for $9.95. The Pro Club Classic offers 15+ sheets of stickers, 1 postcard FullSizeRender (73)and 1 quote card for $14.95. The Pro Club Petite offers 7+ sheets of stickers and 1 mini quote card for $9.95. *Pipsticks can be cancelled at anytime.

Pipsticks searches far and wide for the best, coolest stickers to send each month so your sticker stash (or your little one’s stash) is always on point. I mean, who doesn’t love stickers? We sure do! My daughter has stacks and stacks of stickers to decorate letters, cards (we send a lot of letter to relatives and even a few pen pals), her face, her baby sister’s face.. she finds uses them for just about anything. She was so excited when her Pipsticks pack came in the mail. As we opened it together, she was naming off all the different stickers with such excitement. The joy stickers bring to my daughter is unbelieveable. I wish I got excited about something so simple (being an adult sucks). She plastered all her stickers on tFullSizeRender (72)he included craft paper within a matter of 10 minutes. Now we have beautiful sticker covered paper branding our refrigerator. My daughter said her favorite sticker in the pack was a sheet of pickle stickers that smelled like dill pickles! They really smelled like pickles! She even licked it but she said it tasted like nothing. Good to know, right?

 I love monthly subscriptions, who wouldn’t love a surprise each month? And Pipsticks is the perfect surprise for my sticker-and-mail-loving girl. If you (heck, I think I’m going to order myself the Pro Club Classic for next month!) or your little one loves stickers, I highly recommend Pipsticks. If you’re thinking about signing up, use the code PICFullSizeRender (74)NICTIME for 10% off! And remember, you can cancel your subscription anytime! You can also pause your subscription at anytime, too! Check out their website here!

Silikids Siliskin Sippy & Straw Cup {Review}

When you’re the parent of a toddler, you know all about sippy cups. You know how important a good sippy cup is and how necessary it is for it to be leak-free. Nothing makes me angrier th5FnjE1uVan a sippy cup that leaks everywhere. If I wanted my toddler to spill sticky liquids everywhere, I would just give her a regular cup without a lid. What would make a sippy cup even better is a sippy lid that is universal and fits on any cup. While searching for a such a lid, I came across Silikids Siliskin Sippy Cup and Silicone Straw Cup. After reaching out to Silikids, I was kindly sent a fantastic sippy cup and straw cup.

Silikids is an innovative company, started in 2006, that’s main focus is products made of silicone. Silicone is a safe alternative to chemical-laced plastic. Silikids products are made of 100% food-grade silicone and they’re easy s500774824218195250_p40_i15_w640to clean and super easy to use.

Silikids silicone is:

  • Safe
  • Durable
  • Free of BPA, bisphenol-A, lead, PVC and phthalates.

I love using silicone cups instead of plastic when I can, and I just love Silikids’ sippy and straw cups! The cups are thick and extremely durable, my toddler is so rough with her cups and it’s really held up, it pretty much looks like I just took it out of the box. The lids are incredible! The lids are so soft, flexible and stretchy. To get liquid out of the spout, you have to gently bite down and suck, making it truly leak-free. The straw cup does leak but I chalk it up to being a regular straw. I love that they can be used with practically any kind of cup (depending on the width of the cup), as it stretches around the rim. It is secure enough to where it can be thrown and tossed around but it doesn’t budge from the cup. I love being able to just throw the silicone lid in my purse and take it with us when we go out to eat and not have to worry about bringing a sippy cup for my daughter. I just put the lid on a regular cup at the restaurant and she’s good to go!s500774824218195250_p41_i12_w640I give Silikids Siliskins Sippy Cup and Straw Cups a 5 out of 5 stars. Silikids’ cups are new staples in our household. I love how travel friendly they are and how easy they are to clean and use! I will say I can’t put the lid on the cup with one hand (as my 4 month old is s500774824218195250_p49_i2_w640always in my arms) but that’s the only “bad” thing I can say about it. Silikids has a lot of awesome and innovative products, we’ve even reviewed a few of them – Silikids Silicone Spoons & Bags and the Silikids Silibib. Be sure to check out their website to see their entire product line!

PlaSmart Wonky Wheels {Review}

More than a toy car!

Wonky-Wheels-Logo-Top-Cars-Red-Blue

We try to focus on non-electronic play frequently because C will literally sit and do the shape sorter game on his iPad all day if I let him. So anything that moves, makes noise, helps his motor skills, hand eye coordination or just stimulates his little toddler brain, is okay by me!

I received the Wonky Wheels from PlaSmart and it took C less than 30 seconds to figure it out! I told him to put his finger in the indention on top and then drive it around! He laughed and giggled the entire time while the car twisted and turned all over the kitchen floor. He was thrilled that it drove in circles and whichever way he pushed, it did something completely different. He got quite upset when it wouldn’t follow the roads on his car mat, but we quickly explained to him that it’s not supposed to!

The construction is very solid and well put together. He carries it with him almost everywhere and we have had no issues with it being dropped and breaking or paint chipping or peeling off.wonky wheels.png

It runs about $9.99, which seems like an ideal price point. Overall, Wonky Wheels are fabulous little toys. They would make a good addition to any little boy or girl’s birthday or holiday wish list!
