MBP's Back to School Blast
So, now that summer is officially winding down, and school has begun, we are working hard to try to get back to a 'school year routine.' B had not started pre-K yet, but he does go to church school once a week, and our schedule has been so wacky this summer, that it's been really hard to get a solid bedtime down. Since we know what our nights will look like from here on out for the year, I have rearranged B's personal schedule, which includes an earlier lunch, earlier, shorter nap and bed prep at 8 pm to have him asleep by 8:30. I know it won't happen the way I'd like it to every night, but a mom can hope, right?
Part of a sucessful night's sleep for my son is dependant on a few factors. We're (still) working on that last leg of potty-training at night time, so every now and then we have potty interruptions to deal with at night. The other factor, is B's comfort. If he's too hold, too cold, or doesn't feel comfortable in what he's sleeping in, he'll wake up, and so will mommy and daddy, and that makes for a tired bunch of Witt's the next morning.
Janessa and Nick Whatcott
Lucky for us, I was able to partner with Sugar Doodle Kids a few weeks ago. Sugar Doodle Kids is a super cute and cozy company, offering sweet sleepwear for infants and children. The inspiration behind Sugar Doodle Kids comes from baby Cole, who was born to Sugar Doodle Founders, Nick and Janessa Whatcot in 2008. Cole was born three weeks early to the couple, who were very excited for the birth of their second child. Unfortunately, baby Cole suffered several complications, and returned to the arms of our Savior just days after his birth. (Please take a moment to read the inspiring story, here.) From the unthinkable situation that the Whatcott's were in, they knew they were incredibly blessed to have had their son, even for just a few days, and their experience inspired them to begin Sugar Doodle Kids. Sugar Doodle Kids has a heart for helping kids in need, and a portion of the proceeds from every sale go toward purchasing meals for hungry kids- because no child should ever go to bed hungry.
Janessa and I connected, and I was honored to be able to share a bit of their story with you all, as well as showcase their adorable line of children's sleepwear. Janessa kindly sent us a set of Sugar Doodle Kids' signature Vintage Owl Cotton PJ's for Balian, and we couldn't wait to try them on and test them out!
Sugar Doodle Kids PJ's
As I opened up the sweet little PJ package, I took notice right off, how incredibly soft these PJ's are. They are made from 100% cotton, and are very soft! I knew Balian would love these! The pair of PJ's comes with a long sleeved top and bottom, perfect for the fall and winter months!
Boy's PJ Top
I love the adorable owl printed on the pajama top! The top features a stretch band around the wrist area of the arms, to help the sleeves stay in play while your little man is at play, or dreaming sweetly!
The long PJ bottoms have an elastic waist, with plenty of wiggle room. Like the top, they have the stretch band around the ankles, to help them stay in place. No one likes jammies that ride up- not even little kids, so this was a great idea to implement!
The PJ set looked adorable on my dining room table, but I couldn't wait to see what they looked like on my son! He was so excited to have a new set of PJ's for this fall, and couldn't wait to try them on and have a little fashion show for mommy.
Ta-da! Happy boy in his adorable Sugar Doodle Kids Vintage Owl PJ's!
Oh, my goodness! Balian looked so, so cute in these PJ's! Having cute new pajamas is sort of a great incentive to the kids, and helps them want to get ready for bed. Balian couldn't wait to snuggle with me, and read a story before bedtime in his Sugar Doodle pajamas. He said he loved the owl, because it reminded him of one of his favorite characters on a kids program he really likes.
'Look how I can sleep, mommy!'
We went with a 4T for my soon-to-be 3 year-old son. Since he's so tall and broad shouldered, I always order one size up, and sometimes even two sizes up in pajamas. I was so pleased that these PJ's fit him so nicely. They are snug for safety, but they also have growing room, which means that he'll probably get to wear these all fall and winter without out-growing them.
Look who we found embroidered on the back of the PJ top!
The Sugar Doodle Kids Vintage Owl PJ's for boys retail for $38.00, and are a must-have PJ set this season! These are available in sizes 3T - 8, and are made to sustain rough and tumble boys at play before bedtime, and keep them cozy while they sleep. We've had great success with Balian being comfortable all through the night in these Sugar Doodle Kids PJ's, which make them a winner in my book!
Frowny face, because it's actually time for bed!
Sugar Doodle Kids sizes start at 0-3 mo, so they have great options for little babes and kiddos, too! Check out some of their other designs, we just happen to love!
