Boon Care Package ReviewSponsored By: Boon Inc.
#boonsentmethis I received this wonderful health & grooming kit from Boon Inc! I have owned a few kits similar to this but this one feels more complete to me. Also, the different items don’t feel cheap and I love that it came with a bag to carry everything in as well. Each of the parts is BPA, PVC and Phthalates, they have easy grips so that they don’t slip from your hands. This kit is available at Target (I actually saw it for the first time the other day at my local store.)
- A quick read thermometer
- Silicone toothbrush
- Nail clippers
- Nasal aspirator
- Medicine spoon
- Cradle cap brush
- Bag for travel
Soon after receiving the kit, I put the nail clippers to good use. Normally, I am petrified of clipping baby’s nails. I took my son into the bath so that his nails could be soft and I snipped away. The nail clippers had a barrier around the top which prevented any kind of accident from happening. I loved the grip on these clippers two, the ends were not open and connected which made for betting handling while holding a squirming baby.
My Favorite Thing:
The thermometer is an 8 second quick read type. This is great for children of all ages. The last thing you (or they) want to do is wrestle to get a good temperature reading. With this thermometer, you have a flexible tip which can be used 3 different ways – mouth, rectum and under the arm. In addition to using it for children, there is also a bathtub mode which you can use to test the temperature of the water before placing your baby in it. Shortly after receiving the kit, we had a big come through our home. We tested this thermometer alongside two others and the Boon Inc. thermometer reached the same reading as the other two but within just seconds. The thermometer let us know that our child had a fever by turning red as opposed to the normal range color of green.
We also used the medicine spoon for our two-year old who unfortunately had the big the longest. She was fighting a fever that was on the high side and out of range. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try the spoon. Normally when she sees the typical medicine syringe, she is freaked out and clams up. The spoon looked more natural to her and therefore she took the medicine with little fight.
We unfortunately had to bust out the thermometer for the first time since our little Ben was born and to my surprise, this thermometer also takes the temperature of the bath water! The screen changes colors to show which temperature zone you're in and to make sure that baby is safe. It has a flexible tip so that you can take baby's temp in different areas depending upon their age! This thermometer by @booninc is really just perfect, it's affordable and It comes in the Boon Care health & grooming kit. You can purchase the kit at @target, I think this will have to go on my top baby items list! Are there any products you'd like to see a review on? Let me know! #boonCAREpackage #boonsentmethis
#boonsentmethis I am so afraid of clipping tiny baby nails, I just really don't like doing it and for the most part I don't. My son loves to scratch especially while I'm nursing him so when I realized it was time for a trim, I used these from @booninc! They're so easy to use and they clipped his claws nice and short. I like to take a bath with my son, that's our bonding time and it helps him to sleep better at night. So while nursing him in the bath I clipped his fingernails and gave him a super good scrub with the cradle cap brush! I used @drbrowns baby wash and the two made a perfect pair. Half of my kids had cradle cap, the others didn't so to see the little brush in the #babycare kit, that was great! He loved the way it felt and fell right to sleep. The #boonCAREpackage can be found at @Target!
Overall, I love this kit and I think it is the perfect registry gift for expecting parents. I am currently in the process of creating a post of my favorite baby items that parents should look into, this will definitely be on there so stay tuned for that!
The cradle cap brush is great for babies who are prone to getting the dry skin up top. 2 of my children have had cradle cap (with one of them it lasted until she was 3) so I tried this brush and I thought it was a great way to stimulate hair growth as well as to get rid of the dry skin that was forming.
