Favorite Things: Toddler Edition + Boogie Wipes Giveaway!

I posted a while ago about Grace's Favorite Things and I wanted to share the things that I have found useful as a parent now that she is a toddler.

1. An Ear Thermometer- One night last week, Grace felt warm to me and so I quickly took her temperature and got a reading of 103 degrees. We were able to get her temp down before she went to bed, but the situation reminded me of how glad I am that we got a nice ear thermometer. When she was a baby, we would take her temp with a normal thermometer under her arm. Now I can't imagine trying to get her to sit still long enough for that. I can barely get her to stand still for the few seconds it takes to get a reading in her ear. We have the Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer and it is great. I love how fast it is and it is very easy to use.

2. Food pouches- I had never heard of these amazing things until I had Grace. Basically, they're fruit and veggie purees in handy little pouches. It seems like just a novelty right? Why can't you just give them purees out of a jar or feed them real fruits and veggies? There is something magical about these pouches in our house. For some reason, Grace will not eat veggies. No matter how I offer them, she eats around them or flat out refuses to eat. But if I give her one of the pouches, she devours it. Plus, there is no mess! They're great for travel. They have become my go to snack for when we travel to Wichita to visit my family. Grace prefers the Plum Organics brand, don't ask me why, probably because they're one of the most expensive. She's acquiring my taste levels.

3. And last but certainly not least, Boogie Wipes. If you have not tried these wipes yet and you have a kid in your house of any age, you should. Grace hates getting her face wiped off. When she has a cold, it is a constant struggle to keep her face snot free. And cleaning her up after a messy meal? Well, lets just say it's exhausting. Boogie Wipes make these jobs much easier and are a great alternative to a normal tissue or paper towel.

Boogie Wipes are made with natural saline to dissolve boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold, allergies or otherwise booger-filled kid moments. Extra soft, alcohol, phthalate and paraben free, Boogie Wipes are available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Minty Menthol and Simply Unscented. 

They are really soft and don't irritate the skin like a tissue does. Grace likes the smell of them and will use them to clean her own face! She won't do that with anything else. When she has a cold, we can quickly and easily get rid of the snot and there's no skin irritation at all. To me, that makes them worth every penny!
