Make Bathtime Safe with Puj

Bathtime is one of our family’s favorite parts of the day. My oldest loves bubble baths and pretending the bath is the ocean with her Octonaut toys and my youngest, who is just now starting to sit up, loves splashing around while sitting in her bath chair. While bathtime can fun (and relaxing for me, as I know bedtime this close), it can be dangerous. This American Academy of Pediatrics article from 2009 states that on average, 43,000 children are hurt in bathtub or shower-related falls in the United States each year. pujbaby_1396039444_280When my daughter was two, she slipped in our bathtub and chipped her front tooth. It was terrifying! I reached out to an amazing company, Puj, who has innovative and simple products, included bath safety products. Puj was kind enough to send me two awesome products that will help keep your little ones safe!

Puj (pronounced Pudge) was created by parents of four, Ben and Katie Richardson, with a simple mission: to simplify parenting with great products, designed to make parents’ lives easier. Puj was born when Ben and Katie were searching for a better way to bathe their second baby. Their solution was the ultimate baby bathtub, the Puj tub (check it out here, it’s an absolute must for infants). Since then, Puj added many, many more innovative and simple products.

I was fortunate enough to have received two of those products, Puj bath treads ($14.99) and an elephant Puj Snug ($9.99), to review. You can get a plain old bathtub mat anywhere, but Puj bath treads are super spunky and fun! Each pack comes with six 6” round bath treads and there are two colors to chose from. They are also BPA and PVC free, so no worrying about chemicals! The grippy surface helps prevent slipping for both parents and children and can even be placed outside of the tub for added traction when stepping out of the tub. They’re super easy to apply: clean the surface of the bathtub with bathroom cleaner, r51Nwg-RxyML._SL256_.jpginse with water and allow the bathtub to dry completely. Once it’s dry, apply the self adhesive treads and allow 24 hours before using the tub. The good thing is they’re easy to remove and don’t leave any residue or damage!

The Puj Snug is so simple and so necessary with children. It protects their little heads and limbs from hitting the spout. I know my oldest has hit her head several times on the spout, (and I have too!) It’s made out of a super soft foam-like material, (made from excess material from the Puj bath tub) that is BPA and PVC free and can easily bend and flex. The Puj Snug elephant comebundle_context3_2100x2100_grandes in four colors: gray, white, kiwi (yellow) and aqua. It allows access to the shower diverter and because it’s flexible, it can fit on almost any spout. Simple and easy but makes a big difference during bath time.

Puj has amazing products, not just for bath time but for mealtime, and body products for mom and dad. All of their products are gender neutral, so it makes it easy to plan for baby. I give the Puj Snug and Puj bath treads 5 out of 5 stars. They have made bath time so much safer for both of my girls and for my husband and I as well. The price points of Puj products great, they’re very affordable and the about the same as similar products on the market. Check out all of the products Puj has to offer here! You won’t be disappointed!

A Teal Pumpkin for My Porch


I keep seeing all of these random Facebook posts telling me I need a teal pumpkin this year so I finally got curious enough to do some research. Turns out, the motivation behind the Teal Pumpkin Project is pretty awesome and will help many of our BurritoBuzz families with LOs that struggle with food allergies.

imageWe have been so fortunate to have only experienced mild food sensitivies with our LO thus far. So naturally the fear that my child will be receiving treats during Halloween that could trigger an allergy simply hadn’t crossed my mind. But I’ve come to find that so many of our friends and family have had to experience the heartbreaking moment of taking your child’s Halloween bag and removing half of the treats that could be potentially harmful to them.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is on a mission to get as many homes as possible to offer non-food treats this Halloween. Leaving a teal colored pumpkin on your porch lets other parents know, hey we’ve got treats here that won’t harm your kid. It’s quickly becoming a symbol of relief for parents that live with the constant fear of “what if she accidentally eats something with nuts (or gluten, or dairy….)?!”

So what is a safe treat? The Teal Pumpkin Project recommends staying away from candy or food completely and offering a fun alternative (like our kids need one more piece of candy this holiday anyways) Here are some ideas that would be super easy to find:

  • Crayons
  • Notepads
  • Pencils
  • Toothbrushes
  • Stickers
  • Bracelets
  • Fake tattoos
  • Bouncy balls
  • Silly putty
  • Bubbles

Any of these would be inexpensive to pick up in bulk and a great alternative that kids would still be excited to get while out trick-or-treating.

I love any initiative that keeps kids safe and lessens the sugar-high insanity that becomes my early November. You’ll be seeing a teal pumpkin on my porch this Halloween!
