Citrus Lane: Rave Review & a Discount Code!

Even as a mom of a 14 month old I still get stressed about what to get for friends as baby gifts. I try to stay on top of all of the latest things but some days I feel that is next to impossible with all sorts of new products popping up every time you turn around. That's where Citrus Lane comes in. 

Your shopping from now on is done. Yep, you're welcome. 

Here's "How it Works" from the Citrus Lane site:

We think of our monthly boxes as care packages for parents!
With your subscription to Citrus Lane, you'll receive a monthly box filled with 4-5 healthy and delightful baby products recommended and reviewed by real moms.
When you subscribe, you can pick any box to start with, based on your baby's age, from newborn up to 18 months. The goodies inside will be tailored to the developmental stage of your child.
We're dedicated to helping parents discover the best baby products on the market. Sometimes it's an undiscovered gem that catches our eye. Other times, it's a tried-and-true parent favorite.
Either way, we're looking for that certain something - a wow-factor that makes us say, "Ah-ha! Now this is something every parent should know about!"
Basically, it's like a wine of the month club for parents. Each box contains items that total up to $50 in value, but the subscription is only $25 and shipping is included. 
I know, I know, I had you at wine. (No wine in here, but don't you worry! I already made that suggestion!)

My experience with our Citrus Lane box:  
I let Trey inspect it, of course. He was VERY interested in everything inside. 
The only thing I had told Citrus Lane about Trey was his age and boy did they NAIL IT!!! This box was full of all the things we needed right now!!! I was shocked at how perfect it was (and I'm totally not just saying that!) as you can see we immediately put everything inside to good use. 
Here is what was included:
  • OXO Tot Plate - slip proof bottom, rounded sides, BPA-fee. LOVE. We used it for dinner tonight and Trey's green beans definitely weren't able to hop out like they do with normal plates. 
  • OXO Tot Fork & Spoon Set - these are great because of the way the handles are curved. Trey has been self-feeding for a while and loves his forks and spoons but these seemed to make it even easier for him to do at lunch and dinner today. I'm actually planning to go get more of these at the store tomorrow!! 
  • Kushies Waterproof Bib with Sleeves - I mean, SERIOUSLY? Sleeves!? Genius. Trey won't always have to eat nakey with this thing around!! Ha! 
  • Little Duck Organics Blueberry Apple - IT"S EMPTY! The package showed up THIS morning and Trey (and um.. myself... yea...) ate the WHOLE thing. It's freeze dried, organic, Non-GMO fruits cut up into little bites. Trey is obsessed! (Ok, fine, we are BOTH obsessed.)
  • Sprout Baby Food - we have been a long time Sprout Foods fan so I was pleasantly surprised to find a pouch of these in the box. As you can see Trey actually had this for lunch today. He gave it two thumbs up! 
Can't you tell how much we loved this?! I haven't been this impressed by anything in a long time. Every single thing included is something that I 110% would have purchased myself for Trey. 

Just ask my husband, I wouldn't shut up about it during dinner.....hey at least I know what we are getting his long-time friend & wife for their baby shower gift!! 

Do you want to try out Citrus Lane? You can get your first box for $12.50 - a 50%  discount if you order by November 14th ~ Just use code: CITRUSHALF 

(Disclaimer: I was provided these products for free in exchange for an honest review. These opinions are my own. So yep, the things inside were actually that good.)
