Summer Favorites from Belly Ballot

We have seen some amazing products this summer, and we wanted to share six of our favorites during these hot summer months! With three small kids, these products have been lifesavers!

Cloud B Sleep Sheep – This is a must for new babies all the way through the toddlers years. The Sleep Sheep is the original plush that plays nature sounds and an option for a heartbeat to help calm baby for a restful night sleep. What is so great about the Sleep Sheep is its portability, with its velcro straps in the back. During the summer, we are on the go, and often out later enjoying the summer nights. The Sleep Sheep easily secures to a car seat, pack and play, or crib. It instantly soothes my youngest to sleep no matter where we are!

Munchkin Swaddle Angel – We have found the perfect blankets for these hot Texas summer months! Munchkin just released a new line of swaddle blankets and burp cloths in an ultra soft rayon made from bamboo. These are high end boutique quality blankets, with beautiful patterns. They also have loops on the corners making the blankets more easily to secure if you are nursing or want to use in your stroller. The center is also double layered which is nice added touch. They definitely hit this one out of the park!

Woombie Air – These swaddles are tried and true. Woombie has come out with a new swaddle, which has a built in ventilation allowing excess heat to escape. Amazing! This is a great swaddle for the summer and I no longer have to worry about my baby getting too hot. The zipper allows greater ease for those middle of the night diapers changes. This is a fantastic swaddle, and securely calmed by baby from day 2.

AppeTEETHERS – Babies can now hit up your summer backyard BBQ in style with their own AppeTEETHER! These teething toys provide great textures and are made from food grade silicone, free of BPA, Phthalate, PVC, and lead. AppeTEETHERS look like real food, so your baby can chomp on a Baby-Q Rib or a Chompin’ Chicken Wing. The babies love them and they provide a huge amount of laughter for the adults.  They are unveiling four new styles this summer – Broccoli Bites, Nopainapple, Ice Cream U Scream, and LOL! Sucker.

SwimZip – I am fanatic about skin protection during the summer, and to beat this heat, we are swimming almost every day. Swimzip provides the most stylish UV 50+ swimwear and rashguards for babies, toddlers, and children. And my personal favorite feature is the full-length zippered front making it easy to get on and off! That has been a life saver. These are the most comfortable and stylish suits, and friends constantly ask me where I found them!

PackItCool – This cooler makes me so happy! With built in patented freezable gel-liners, you can keep baby’s milk and food cool – for up to 6 hours! There is no longer a need for those pesky ice packs – you just keep this cooler in the freezer and it is ready to use. This cooler allows us to pack healthy snacks while we are on the go this summer, and know that they are staying cold. They compact down very small, allowing them to store easily in the freezer. These are a perfect accessory for all of your summer acitvites. They come in multiple sizes too, including the Baby Cooler (perfect for bottles) up to the Shop Cooler (size of a grocery bag).
