Toddler Time with BabbleBoxx
This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.
Zoe jumped up and down when I told her there was a box coming in the mail just for her. We recently received a toddler themed BabbleBoxx containing a Cup Strap from Lil' Sidekick, Else Nutrition Plant-based Nutrition, CoComelon Musical Yellow School Bus, Squishmallows® from Jazwares, Reach Out & Read Bookmark, and Baby Magic's Bath and Calming Lotion. Each of these products were a hit with Zoe and has made our lives just a little easier.
Cup Strap from Lil' Sidekick
I'm so amazed at the invention of nifty products like the cup strap from Lil' Sidekick. The cup strap prevents small items like cups, phones, toys, spoons, teethers & more from being chucked to the dirty floor. The mission of Lil' Sidekick is to create products that solve real world parenting problems to make raising happy and healthy kids easier. When Zoe was a baby, her sippy cup must have fell on the floor a thousand times. There was one time we took her to the zoo and the she threw the sippy cup out of her stroller. We had to literally chase it down the hill and had to figure out a way to disinfect it. GROSS!
Zoe and her dad tried out the cup strap for the first time on their daily evening walk and she loved the fact that she could pull the strap up to get her water bottle. Thankfully, she rarely throws her bottle on the ground but it does happen on occasion. I would highly recommend this amazing product as a gift for new moms!

Else Nutrition Plant-Based Complete Nutrition for Toddlers
My worst fear is that my child becomes a picky eater. Thankfully, Zoe has not completely gone that route yet. I do, however, notice that she will eat sparingly for dinner and worry that she is not getting the most complete nutrition for her development. Else Nutrition Plant-Based Complete Nutrition is a plant-based formula primarily made of almonds, tapioca and buckwheat; three core ingredients that go through a clean, all-natural process that offers the protein, carbohydrates, and fat directly from the whole plants, along with phytonutrients, fiber, vitamins, and minerals nature intended to provide optimal nourishment for children. We supplement her nutrition by adding a scoop of Else Nutrition into her delicious smoothies. It gives us peace of mind because we know that our child is getting the purest, cleanest, complete nutrition nature intended. We love that Else Nutrition is a great source of protein, calcium, iron, fiber & healthy fats (with less sugar than other formulas/cow's milk/plant-based milks).

CoComelon Musical Yellow School Bus
If your kiddo has not seen or heard of CoComelon, they are living under a rock. When Zoe opened the BabbleBoxx she immediately gravitated to the CoComelon Musical Yellow School Bus and shouted "Look, it's, JJ!". If you press on the grill of the bus, it starts playing a clip of the song "Wheels on the Bus". I had no idea there were CoComelon toys for kids and this one was a definite hit with Zoe. The free-wheeling motion allows her to take control of the vehicle and use her imagination.
Squishmallows® from Jazwares
Squishmallows® is indeed squishy and super cuddly. These little soft toys each have a bio on their tags, such as their favorite food, career aspiration, etc. There are over 500 characters available sold by the manufacturer Jazwares and available in more than 40 countries. Can you believe that more than 55 million Squishmallows® have been sold around the world?
Squishmallows® from Jazwares is available at a retailer near you!
Reach Out and Read
Reach Out and Read is the only national early literacy non-profit organization working directly with pediatric care providers to share the lifelong benefits that result from families reading aloud to their children every day. The Reach Out and Read program begins in infancy and continues through age five, with a special emphasis on children growing up in low-income communities. The program promotes healthy child development and leads to stronger communities. Last year, 33,000 pediatric clinicians served 4.5 million children and shared 7 million books at 6,100 program sites around the country. How amazing is that?

Zoe has a love and hate relationship with bath time. Some days she willingly takes one and some days it's a struggle. One thing she does love about bath time is the soap. She definitely loves smelling good and being clean. Baby Magic Calming Baby Wash has made her bath time routine a lot easier. Zoe loves the lavender and chamomile scent and has helped her transition to bed seamlessly. The Baby Magic Calming Lotion is perfect for her dry skin, especially in the winter season. We love Baby Magic because it's hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and free from sulfates, dyes, parabens and phthalates.
Baby Magic products are available at your local Walmart retailer.
