Back to School with Santa Cruz organic review and #GIVEAWAY {US only}

It's back to school time here... and you know what that means? Packing lunches for my littles. I was so excited when Santa Cruz reached out to me and asked me if I'd be interested in trying out some of their products! If you know me, then you know that eating local and organic foods is high on my list of priorities!
I was sent a 4 pack of apple sauce in a squeezable pouch, a jar of strawberry fruit spread, and a jar of peanut butter!
This is what I received:

I cannot tell you how yummy they were! They are awesome! My kids loved them even more! I really appreciate that their peanut butter had no added sugar. Ingredients 'organic roasted peanuts, *may contain 1% or less of salt.'
I sent the applesauce with my 4 yo to preschool. It is so easy for little ones to open and eat! No need to send a cup of applesauce with a spoon (which never makes their way home to me anyway)!

Santa Cruz offers a wide variety of awesomely organic products. To see what all they have to offer, visit their website. Oh and you may also want to check out their 'recipe' page for a list of delicious recipes!!

Santa Cruz has generously offered one of you the chance to receive these same items I received (open to residents of the US only)!

Good luck!!

#GIVEAWAY Tots Bots New binky diaper review and #GIVEAWAY {US/Canada}



I am so thrilled to introduce to you my latest obsession I mean go-to diaper!! TOTS BOTS!
Now I may be partial to this diaper because it's made in the UK (Scotland to be exact) and my father was born in England. Or maybe it's the absolutely adorable prints that these diapers come in
These are the new prints ^^ that have come out in the new V4 version!
The diapers pictured below are a part of their 'story book collection' and come in the older (V3 version)! If you are stateside, you can still get the V3 version (I saw a few in snaps only) from retailers such as Thanks Mama!



Or perhaps it's the way these diaper work, the high quality of production, or maybe it's a matter of all of the above combined!

Tots Bots has a few different versions of their diapers to choose from. There is the TeenyFit (which is an all in one (AIO) diaper designed to fit babies from 5-12 lbs; the EasyFit (also an AIO), and a one size diaper, designed to fit babies from 8-35 lbs; and lastly the Bamboozle. The Bamboozle is a stretchy bamboo fitted diaper, which comes in two sizes. Size one designed for babies weighing from 6-18 lbs and size 2 designed for babies weighing 9-35 lbs! Tots Bots also offers swim diapers and training pants!

The new TotsBots easy fit V4 has a bamboo, cotton and minky blend fabric booster!
Here is some more information on this diaper (taken from the TotsBots website):
The perfect daytime nappy
  • Pop in booster comes as standard for increased absorbency.
  • Fast drying.
  • Integral waterproof outer means there is no need for a separate cover.
  • Hook & loop fasteners enable quick and easy changes.
  • Wrap-around stretch for ultimate comfort and fit.
  • Super absorbent bamboo interior is so soft next to baby’s skin.
  • Made in Scotland.
  • Fits from 8lbs to 35lbs.
  • Oekotex certified.


I was thrilled to have been sent the brand new V4 TotsBots "binky" in the Hickory Dickory Dock print in hook and loop closure! For those of you that have been a reader of my blog for any amount of time, know that I am a DIE HARD snaps (poppers) girl!! Read on to find out what I discovered while using this diaper!!

This is what I received:

 This print is so much more vibrant and rich in real life!!
 Clocks, and mice and cheese!!! When I was stationed in Germany... I flew home for Christmas the first year I was there and I bought my parents a cuckoo clock from the Black Forest! It was awesome! This diaper kind of brings back memories of that! 
 The inside of the diaper:
 
 A good look at the print!

 Ok, here is the inside. It is indeed an all in one diaper with a pocket near the back that you stuff the inners into! As you can see in this picture, the snap in soaker which is bamboo, cotton, minky blend (aka binky) fabric gives this diaper superb absorbency and is GREAT when used at night!! 
 The soaker simply snaps to the inside of the diaper with 2 snaps:
 Here is the diaper with soaker attached and unstuffed:
You simply fold the soaker at the snap and stuff it into the back side of the diaper's pocket. 
This is what your diaper will look like when it's ready to go onto baby's bum:

 Let's talk hook and loop! You can see here the vibrant red strip of hook and loop material. You can also see the two rise snap settings here:
 My daughter (who is about 14 lbs at 1 year old) wears this diaper on the second rise snap as shown here:
This diaper is amazing! I LOVE the prints (and solid colors of the diapers which can be found here)! I LOVE that it's an all in one (AIO) with the optional snap in soaker for heavy wetters or overnight use!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the prints! I can't wait to get them ALL!
I also love the quality! These diapers are very well made and Tots Bots really does a great job with their customer service!!
Here is this diaper on my little girl:

 No gaps in the legs 
 As you can see it is a bit 'fluffier' with the snap in soaker:




What's not to love!?
