We’re dealing with some pretty big changes around my house. With twins on the way, bedrest is just around the corner for me — which means I’m not going to be able to get out much. I’ve done it before. I know I can do it again. It can be emotionally draining though and I know from experience what a difference the little things make in my mood (and ultimately my health).
So I’m starting the hunt now for fun little things that will break up the monotony of bedrest. I was excited to hear about Citrus Lane, a monthly subscription service that delivers care packages that are customized to your baby’s age and gender. I was impressed by the quality of the products that were included. They were all developmentally appropriate, non-toxic, and prices start as low as $16.33 a month!
Who doesn’t love getting something fun in the mail?
With younger kids, (or with the potential of bedrest in my future) it can be hard to get out and explore new things sometimes. I don’t do a lot of window shopping because, well, I have kids. My trips to the store are in and out as fast as I can without someone breaking something or getting lost. . . not that we’ve ever done that.
My toddler was thrilled to death to find a box on our doorstep and she was more than happy to dig right in and see what she could find. Citrus Lane’s award winning boxes can be customized for kids from newborn to age 5. They give you a great assortment of products including, toys, books, snacks and personal care products.
My 18 month old was fascinated by the Baby Bug Magazine that came in our box. She tends to rip books so I loved that she could handle the magazine style book without too much stress on my part. It’s not something I’ve considered before but a product that I’ll very likely purchase for her in the future. I wouldn’t have been exposed to that without Citrus Lane introducing me to it. We’ve read that book over and over again and she’s happily carried around the house for days.
She happily read her book and snacked on the organic chips that came in her box. It was such a novel thing for her to have a package just for her that it easily occupied her for the rest of the afternoon — that’s something I’m going to have to remember for when I do end up on full bedrest.
I really appreciated the sheet that included information on each product in the box. It made it easy to flip through and see the benefits of each of them without having to filter through a bunch of marketing material if I’d gone directly to each of the brand’s websites.
