Baby Butz Bum Cream | Kicking Rashes in the Bum

August 7, 2017

This post was sponsored and made possible by Baby Butz. All statements remain my own.

With summer reaching its hottest points this usually means more swimming and (tentatively) more outings. As a cloth diapering family, sometimes extensive heat can cause prolonged changes to not go so well. By this, I very much mean rashes! Sometimes these can be unavoidable and always pesky to deal with. We are really excited to bring you a sponsored post from Baby Butz! While the cream is not cloth diaper safe, it is bum safe and effectively relieves sore and chapped bummies. We are completely obsessed!

July 20, 2017

Parenting has some interesting gigs (especially at Little Gummi) to it and certainly a lot of aspects that follow along. Rather it is going to the gym for some well spent ‘me time’ (what’s that??) or hitting the park and the soccer games, the taxi doesn’t stop so why should you? Precidio has this awesome Total Hydration solution for all of your daily needs; The Multi Flask!

HABA On The Farm Threading Game

July 14, 2017

We absolutely love toys that promote learning and education over at Little Gummi and the HABA On The Farm Threading Game is the perfect toy with the best of both worlds. For children as young as 18 months, it encourages hand-eye coordination and development. Jensen is 2 and still loves hers!  It more or less is great for teaching patterns and just a wonderful introduction into directions and problem solving. It sounds silly because I don’t think we truly ponder teaching our young 18 month olds about patterns and directions but it is such a crucial age for beginning developments.

I absolutely love games for the entire family and HABA gave just that with their On The Farm Threading Game. Sometimes traditional boardgames can give an overwhelming feel and I love the simplicity of the On The Farm Threading Game. It sparks just enough curiosity to hold a young kiddos attention but at the same time does not feel overwhelming.
Threading the animals are so easy! Especially for little bitty hands. It comes with 8 pieces, four template sets and a bag to hold it! The templates have easy to follow directions that include patterns for your young ones to mimic while threading. We love to turn this into a counting experience as well! So we count the items we are threading and not only learn crucial hand-eye coordination but educational developments as well.

The On The Farm Threading Game is a perfect gift for any party, or just a great buy for your own kiddo to enjoy. I love that it catches and sparks the interest of younger babes all the way up to toddlers and gives a great opportunity for us as parents to teach our young ones animal identifying, names, sounds and multiple other educational developments!

You can begin your kiddos On The Farm Threading Game fun by shopping the link below! The made in Germany game is composed of beech wood and gives me peace of mind knowing my child is playing with something safe and fun! Keep in mind, the pieces are small and always need parental supervision when enjoying!

Disney/Pixar Cars Booster Seat | The First Years

June 25, 2017

The First Years

With Cars 3 fresh in the cinema we partnered with The First Years to bring you a booster seat that will have your Little zooming in to meal time like Lighting McQueen.
At Little Gummi we love products that make meal time easier, especially with very exploratory kids who have other agendas. When you bring in a product that your child loves just as much as you do, things get that much easier! The First Years Disney/Pixar Cars Booster Seat is great in that it can work not only on your standard dining chair using the table top, but also with its own individual top as well. Just remember, it is never to be used aside from a chair and this can be easily secured using the provided straps.

The First Years

The booster seat comes equipped with everything you need to bring your little Racer to the Family meal:

  • straps to secure the booster to the chair
  • A lid that is dishwasher safe and fully adjustable to fit snug to your Littles body so it truly grows with your little one
  • A built in cup holder
  • Three Point Harness for safety. The adjustment is so easy on this.
  • Foldable back for easy storage and transportation

The First Years

We absolutely love that the The First Years seat can be folded and taken on-the-go especially during travel so your Little doesn’t lose their regime even during something like meal time! This is really important for us as we maintain a really strict eating schedule for our children. With our daughter having special attention to her mealtime needs, one of the things that helps her stay on track and focus is familiarity so anything that is portable, such as The First Years booster is a definite win for us!

The First Years

Recommended for: We recommend The First Years Disney/Pixar Cars Booster Seat for your little racer between 6months and 50 pounds who ideally can sit up unassisted. This gender neutral booster will be a hit for any home and on the go as it customized for optimal comfort for any babe. Shop the link below to get your own Disney/Pixar Cars Booster Seat directly from Target!

Bambino Mio | Changing the World One Nappy at a Time

June 15, 2017

Bambino Mio

We are huge cloth diapering advocates at Little Gummi and we have been thrilled to partake in  The Great Dad Challenge from Bambino Mio. This is a brand that has taken the cloth diapering world by storm with their award winning products that are designed to protect baby’s bum as much as it is the environment. Their aim is to bring superior customer service and products that will enable you to focus solely on the joys of parenthood. This shines through each nappy and the kindness behind the brand.

As part of The Great Dad Challenge we were given 5 challenges, one each day as part of a way to incorporate fatherhood into the cloth diapering world of uncanny messes and making cloth mainstream!

CHALLENGE #1 THE STAY AT HOME CHALLENGE

For this challenge we really capitalized on testing performance over anything else and found that Bambino Mio truly outdid their diapers from strong velcro to strong performance. One of the aspects we closely followed was the soft material on our sons skin. Because he has eczema sometimes different materials can flare it up and we were so happy that Bambino Mio has created a lush fabric delicate enough for even the most allergen ridden skin.

We absolutely adore the Miosolo and think it is a great fit and great alternative to get you started in your cloth nappy journey!

CHALLENGE #2 THE OUT AND ABOUT CHALLENGE

This challenge was all about testing and trying Bambino Mio Miosolo out on the go. We took our nappy downtown and hit the shops and dining without having an ‘uh-oh’ moment of “did Miller get water on him…or?” which was awesome! Bambino Mio also makes a super sleek and compact wet bag so when you do have that dire need to change the diaper, you have a leak proof bag that will handle all your needs!

CHALLENGE #3 THE OVERNIGHT CHALLENGE

As we wrap up the overnight challenge (too early, I might add! Where does the energy in these kids come from?!) We were very pleased to see that these nappys held up with our 6-8 hour sleep session and came out on top. We usually have to change the sheets for our son when he wakes up as he is a very heavy night soaker but when adding the Mioboost it really maximized protection. For overnight I would try to limit any extremely long spans of usage so you don’t have a leak but we were pretty pleased overall!

CHALLENGE #4 THE WASHING & DRING CHALLENGE 

The sound of my washing machine going and the smell of soapy clean suds. Am I the only one that likes that?! We are not usually super picky about changing up brands for laundering our cloth nappies but Iove how fresh the miofresh is! Hence the name, eh?! As we complete our weeks challenge we are preparing for many more uses of our cloth diapers from Bambino Mio and their ever-so perfect designs.

 

We have absolutely loved partaking in The Great Dad Challenge and all of the daily activities we got to try out in doing so. Bambino Mio is giving away a start pack complete with

15 x miosolo all-in-one diapers
160 mioliners (biodegradable diaper liners)
26 oz of miofresh (diaper cleanser)
1 x pack of miowipes (natural baby wipes)
3 x mioboost (diaper boosters)
1 x diaper pail
2 x laundry bags
1 x reusable plastic tub
