April Bluum Box Review

Hooray! My second bluum box has arrived! I loved last months box so I was anxious to get this one!

First Look:

These boxes are adorable. I also love the crinkled filling they use. They don't include a information card but they do send a card with the theme of your box. Our bluum box theme this month was "tiny chompers." This couldn't be more perfect for Oliver's achy mouth.

The Goodies:

Camilia- Teething Relief ($9.15): We haven't tried this out yet but I'm very interested in this. I haven't used any homeopathic medicines but I've been hearing a lot about them lately. Oliver is teething hardcore right now. We will be trying this out TODAY. Anything to help my little guy from being in pain!
Spiffies- Baby Tooth Wipes ($2.88): I've never heard of these wipes before but I think they're pretty cool. You can use them for swollen gums and for cleaning their little teeth. We received the grape flavor!

Priddy Books- Baby Shaker Teether Animals ($6.54): This teether/ book combination is genius. I had Oliver a toy, book, blanket, really anything, and he puts it in his mouth. This will help him get used to holding a book but also give him something to chew on. Love it!

BabyLegs- Leg Warmers ($12.00): Let me start off by saying, I LOVE this company. We received a pair of cute striped leg warmers. They are great for crawling babies and they make it super easy for changing diapers. We happened to already have this pattern. I emailed BabyLegs asking them if I could possibly exchange this pair out for a different pattern. I really thought it was a long shot but to my surprise, they emailed me back within an hour! They told me not to worry about exchanging them out and that they will send me a pair of my choice. I definitely did not expect that. This company has amazing customer service. Customer service is a big deal to me and I'm pretty sure this is the quickest response I have ever had from a company! I recommend them to everyone!
Weleda- Diaper Cream ($13.50): I've seen Weleda products around but haven't had the chance to try them out. Oliver doesn't get very bad diaper rash but I'm glad to have this for when he does. It smells great and I like the consistency.
Family Bedrock- Siliconies Teething Bangle ($12.95): I'm not thrilled over this bangle. I don't really wear bracelets and do I really want to teach my baby that it's okay to chew on mommy's jewelry? I don't think that's a habit I want to start. BUT this will work just fine being a teether on it's own, so we will get some use out of it still!
Luna Protein Bar- Chocolate Peanut Butter ($1.25): I had a total chocolate craving this morning (which is weird because I usually hate sweets in the morning) so I had this for breakfast. It hit the spot. I will gladly welcome Luna Bars in any boxes I get!

Box Value: 

All totaled up this months bluum box was worth $58.27. Wayyy more than the $24.95 a month I pay.

 My Thoughts:

I liked a lot of the items in this box but I didn't love this months bluum box. It wasn't bad by any means. Last months box was just more up my alley.
