Loving Lately | The Toddler Edition ♥

I wanted to bring this feature back to my blog as there are so many great products, toys and clothing which Tyler Lee gets to enjoy every week. I love sharing our finds with other parents and their children so hopefully you and your little ones may benefit a little from these posts and find some gems for yourselves in all the things we love for little ones. Below are just some of the things which Tyler Lee and I as his mama have been loving lately for toddlers...

 Burts Bees Baby Bee Range. I absolutely love using the Burts Bees Baby Bee range on Tyler Lee, the smell of the products is a delight - it has a slight sweet smell of honey and the products are all perfect for his sensitive skin. I know it shouldn't really matter as ultimately about the product inside but the packaging is really lovely too and it looks lovely on display in the bathroom in his little white wicker basket full of bath and body treats. It may not be proven but I am convinced that the wash/shampoo makes his hair grow quicker than other shampoos he has used in the past. The Burts Bees Baby Bee range is a bit more expensive than other baby bath and body products available out there but I think it's nice for my boy to have a little bit of luxury in his life. Also, the products have been great for his hair and skin so if paying a little bit more means that his skin reaps the benefits then I am more than happy to do so. Our favourite products from the range so far are the Calming Lotion which I massage Tyler Lee's skin with every night. The lavender and vanilla fragrance really helps him to relax and soothe him to sleep and the lotion itself keeps his skin soft, smooth and free from dryness. We also love the Cream-to-Powder which has been amazing at keeping Tyler Lee's bottom free from nappy rash. This is a cream which dries to a powdery formula keeping him dry and his skin free from irritation. Burts Bees Baby Bee range is a big winner with us.

 Weleda Marshmallow Face Cream. This is a product which I wouldn't normally buy as I find is very expensive at €14.99 but Tyler Lee needed it as he had patches of dry skin on his face from the cold and over-reliance on his dummy when he was sick. I picked this product as it has marshmallow in it and I used a marshmallow face cream on him before and it made his skin super soft. I have now been using this product on his face in the morning when he gets dress and at night when he's getting into his pyjamas and it has done wonders for his skin. It got rid of the dry patches instantly and it has left the skin on his face soft and supple. I will be purchasing this product again once it's gone.

 Teddy Mountain. We took Tyler Lee to Teddy Mountain on his birthday as he loves his cuddly toys and we wanted to get him one as a keepsake and also let him have the experience of seeing it being made up, etc. The experience was fantastic, the staff were so friendly and Tyler Lee really enjoyed making his cuddly toy adoption certificate, seeing it being stuffed, putting in a little 'wishes and dreams' label in the inside of it and we also chose a baby powder scent to go into the middle of the cuddle toy which you can really smell on it, it's so lovely. We called the dog cuddly toy Tilly as it looks a bit like Tyler Lee's grandads dog, he loves it and it was cheaper than Jacek and I were expecting too.

 Cuddledry Apron Towel. I wish I had discovered this towel a lot sooner because it would have been a godsend to us these past few months for bath times. The feel of the Cuddledry Apron Towel is super soft and is so lovely against baby's precious, delicate skin. It's made from natural bamboo fibre and cotton and I'm a big fan of baby clothes and products made with bamboo as they are so soft. I love the design of this towel, it's made so that parents can wear it as an apron, perfect for keeping themselves dry whilst taking their little ones out of the bath but also great for snuggles too - my boy loves the feel of this towel on his face especially which makes for lots of post-bath time snuggles - they didn't name it Cuddledry for nothing! Cuddledry have a fabulous range of towels, robes, wash cloths and more for little ones and I have to say that everything looks fantastic quality and so sweet. I just love things like this for little ones, I think they make the experience of bath time for them all the more special. I now have my eye on their snuggle bunny towel, it's so adorable!

 Slumbersac Winter Sleeping Bag - Pirate. Tyler Lee has been in sleeping bags since he went into his cot at six weeks old. Sleeping bags like the Slumbersac winter sleeping bags really give me peace of mind that my boy will be warm, snug and safe while he sleeps. The Slumbersac winter sleeping bag in pirate design is the first sleeping bag he's had that has arms attached and I thought the design of this was great as it has kept him so warm during these cold winter nights, to which there doesn't seem to be an end in sight! The pirate design is so sweet with it's blue and white stripes, decals of a pirate ship and treasure chest and 'ahoy captain!' embroidered on the breast. With an approximate tog rating of 3.5 t's the perfect sleeping bag for keeping little pirate loving girls and boys warm and snug at bed time. I know my boy is as snug as bug in his and thankfully it's super long still meaning that it will do him for next autumn and winter too. You can also get your little ones name embroidered on their sleeping bags to make it personalised to them too.

Have you or your little ones ever used any of the above products before? Did you love them as much as we did?

    I have never tried any of the Burt's Bees baby products, but I have been wanting too! Also - my youngest son (4 months) has been suffering terribly from eczema the past few weeks. I need to try this marshmallow cream! Where can I buy it? :)

  24. These are great products. My kids slept in sleeping bags when they were little.

  25. I love visiting your site. Tyler Lee is so precious. His little smile is so contagious. We love Burts Bees here. It's one of few lotions and potions that don't break out my skin. Kiddo loves to use it too because she gets really dry skin in the winter and this is good for her young skin. The cuddle toy pup is super cute. We have those here, the most popular is Build a Bear. We did that a few weeks back. Kiddo made a My Little Pony, my husband made a Captain America teddy bear and I did a rock star kitten. So much fun. You can get smells and heartbeats but we opted to not do those.

  26. As a dog lover, I want a stuffed pooch like Tilly! I still collect plush animals. Products that have marshmallow always get me because it makes me think of the sweet treat instead of an herb.

  27. I'm sure these are all great products for kids. I would definitely use the Weleda Marshmallow Face Cream on a toddler, but is it wrong that I want it for myself??

    ReplyDelete
  28. My daughter has such bad skin. I always feel just so bad for her, but I have never tried the Weleda.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I definitely need to try Burt Bees! Great product list!

    ReplyDelete
  30. First of all - those eyes & those curls....just too adorable! I love the idea of the towel that can be used as an apron - can't tell you how soaked I get giving my twins a bath. One of my twins also has dry skin, which gets bad in the winter.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have never heard of Burts Bees before. I am passing this information on to my daughter for her little girl.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Marshmallow face cream? That sounds kind of amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  33. We've used similar products to the slumber sack and the apron towel on all of the littlest set of kids - there is nothing like that snuggled up feeling to keep them happy and secure.
