Since my little cub was born we’ve been trying out products from Vital Baby as part of their #ParentingThe VitalWay campaign.
We’ve been sent a selection of goodies to put to the test and some have become firm favourites in our house.
The Sanitising Water is one of my favourite products I’ve used with Bear (and Lamb!) I recommend it to everyone. It’s a 100% Natural Cleansing water that kills 99.9% of bacteria in seconds. Totally safe for newborns, infants & adults, even if swallowed! It can be used on hands, skin, bottles, teethers, and soothers etc. I have the large bottle in my kitchen (which has now run out) and a small travel sized bottle in my changing bag.
Secondly is the Health & Safety kit. When Bear was a newborn he has a stubborn cold for about 4 weeks (which developed into an ear infection). His nose was full of yukkiness and he couldn’t sleep. I remembered I’d been sent the health & safety kit from Vital Baby so tried the nasal decongester. OMG it’s amazing. All you need to do is squirt a couple nasal drops into each nostril then use the decongester to clear the nose. It works brilliantly and was one of my most used products in the early days! You also get a 2 in 1 digital bath and room thermometer in a fun teddy bear design and a 3-in-1 FlexiSafe® thermometer suitable for oral or underarm use.
We have been using the Vital Baby weaning products since Bear was around 5 1/2 months. Originally we wanted to do baby led weaning. With Bear’s sleep being so broken we thought filling him with porridge or puree may help him sleep longer. Turns out he loves spoon feeding as much as he loves eating off our plates. so we have naturally done a bit of both.
Some of my favourite spoons we have for Bear are the Vital Baby Soft Tip Weaning Spoons. The tips are super flexible so very gentle on your little ones gums. Their curved handle makes it really easy for baby’s to grip. For the first few months of weaning Bear had one in each hand, while I used one to feed him!
We were also sent the Press ‘n’ Pop Mini Freezer Pots. I had to figure out how we would use these, as I wasn’t going to make any purees for the freezer. These have actually some in use for lunch box snacks. They hold little cubes of cheese, raisins (for Lamb) and even slices of cucumber. It keeps Bears lunch fresh and means I’m not taking more than I need. I also used these to hold porridge oats if we stay away from home, so I don;t have to take the whole box.
Bear hasn’t been that good at using beakers. I’ve only just got him to take a bottle (at 8 1/2 months) and now we’re working on him sipping from a beaker. The two we have been sent from Vital Baby are the Soft Spout Baby’s 1st Tumber and the Soft Spout Trainer Cup.
The Swim Rings are loads of fun for both my boys. Lamb loved linking the rings and making a train, while Bear loved chewing on them (of course). The Stick and Slide is his favourite. He already has lots of rubber bath animals and spends hours sliding them into the water.
Lamb has recently started eating better, which is such a relief. We’ve struggled with his eating since he was 10 months old (which we are quickly approaching with Bear and are dreading). He’s now almost 4 and has started trying foods at pre-school and asking for lunch! He now has a new set of Vital Baby Cutlery to eat his lunch with (even if it is only waffles and sweetcorn!)
We have loved trying out the Vital Baby products. It’s not a brand I was aware of when Lamb was a baby so I’m glad I’ve been introduced to them with Bear. They offer such a huge range of products I really recommend you take a look at their website to see what they do.
Thank you to Vital Baby for letting us be part of the #ParentingTheVitalWay campaign. We will, of course, continue to love and use your products!
