It can be daunting to figure out the best items and services to bring into my family’s home, but it’s so gratifying when I find a good fit. I was recently sent a handful of baby and kid-friendly products from Babbleboxx to give a whirl and they were so great that I wanted to share with you!
Each product they selected helps make parents lives easier and keeps kids happy.
Here’s a little bit about each one:
Cup Strap from Lil’ Sidekick
In 2011, Amy Vohs, the mom boss and creator of Lil’ Sidekick, found herself with a little one who constantly threw anything and everything that was in sight. As a parent, you know the drill — crawl around trying to find the item and then look frantically for a clean place to sanitize. Yikes! Amy created the Lil’ Sidekick as a safe way to attach cups, phones, toys, spoons, teethers, and more to strollers, grocery carts, and car seats.
This innovative product is made in the USA from FDA-approved materials and it’s available in blue, pink, charcoal gray, and green. It’s easy to clean and features patented built-in breakaway points making it a perfect option for baby shower gifts.

Else Nutrition Plant-Based Complete Nutrition for Toddlers
Else Nutrition began when one of the co-founders’ granddaughters became ill as an infant. She simply could not tolerate any of the available formula options on the market. He remembered an old family recipe centered around almond paste and after his granddaughter was on the mend, the rest was history.
The three core ingredients of this plant-based alternative to dairy-based formula are almonds, tapioca, and buckwheat. It’s free of harsh chemicals, non-GMO, and free from corn syrup solids, dairy, soy, and fillers allowing for peace of mind and promoting healthy growth and development during a key time. You’ll find Else Nutrition ideal for toddler nutrition, weaning off formula, picky eaters, and those who have dairy allergies. It’s also great in smoothies and baked goods as it’s an incredible source of protein, calcium, iron, fiber, and healthy fats!

Reach Out & Read
Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based early literacy nonprofit that works with pediatric care providers to share the long-lasting benefits that result from families reading aloud to together. Founded in 1989 in Boston, MA, it remains the only organization that has potential to reach nearly every child in the United States. The first three years of a child’s life are critical in creating a foundation for success which is why Reach Out and Read provides tools and encouragement for infants through age 5 with all backgrounds and means with special emphasis on children growing up in low-income communities.
Reach Out and Read creates much-needed healthy child development — cognitively, socially, and emotionally — that leads to stronger communities. They currently work with 33,000 pediatric clinicians and have served 4.5 million children and shared 7 million books at 6,100 program sites around the country over the last year.
