I stumbled upon Vitamins Baby through another blog, and the name was the first thing that grabbed my attention. But when I finally checked out their site and products, I was hooked! Vitamins Baby is an online baby store complete with clothing, layette items, shoes, education materials, and accessories.
From their website:
"For over 45 years, we have clothed America’s babies. We have made it our mission to provide some of the best-designed, highest quality baby products for newborn, infants and toddlers.
Our efforts have resulted in a combination of children’s awards and nominations. The satisfaction of knowing that we have helped parents connect emotionally with their newest addition is the most important reward of all."
For my review, I was sent one blankie buddy. Though I wanted a monkey to go along with our theme for Mason, I had to settle for a lion, as they didn't have any monkey blankie buddies at the time. Since I first received my blankie buddy, Vitamins Baby have several more different options for blankie buddies in their online store.
I especially love these leopard print blankie buddies for little girls:
I have to say though, I do like the lion blankie buddy we received, and so does Mason:
Blankie buddies are light weight, and so soft! They are small too, so they are easy to throw in a diaper bag and take with us on long car rides or overnights, so he still has a snuggle buddy at night and on naps. So often, we find stuffed animals or other toys that are too heavy for little hands to hang on to, but blankie buddies are so light weight and easy for little ones to hold and play with.
Most of the time though, Mason's blankie buddy stays in his crib for his nap and bed times, as those seem to be the times he loves it most. I love it at these times too, as he usually cuddles it or strokes the soft fabric and dozes off....and a napping baby makes for a stress free mama! ;-)
For my older children, they had blankets they took everywhere that they snuggled and loved (and still do!) While I love that, there have been times I wished we had something smaller and easier to take places for them to snuggle and find comfort with, such as these blankie buddies. But with Mason being the more difficult sleeper of the 3, and slightly harder to please, I am so thankful I discovered Vitamins Baby and blankie buddies for him and me.
