A few months ago, I was passed along a special promo code to try out Citrus Lane's subscription box service.  I had been dying to try it out for a while, so I decided to give it go! If you don't know anything about this service, here is a little bit of information directly from their website:

Our storyOnce upon a time, I was a first-time mom. And like many expectant mothers, I spent months planning for every last detail of motherhood.
To find the absolute best products for my baby, I emailed all my mom friends and asked which brands they loved the most. Soon my inbox was flooded with advice on everything from breast pumps and strollers to pacifiers and swaddle blankets.
Being a parent is an amazing experience! But let's face it, it's not an easy job. There are so many options that it can be overwhelming.
How'd I finally make my decisions? I turned to other parents for their sage advice and words of wisdom. And that's why I created Citrus Lane--to help parents discover innovative products, share information, ask questions and find inspiration.
I like to think of our monthly boxes as care packages to help moms and dads on their parenting journeys. Every product we include has been recommended and reviewed by our advisory board and our community. No marketing gimmicks, no paid placements -- just real recommendations from real parents for products that solve real problems.
I hope that you enjoy being here as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
Happy parenting!

Founder, CEO and Mother of Two

Now that you know a little bit more about this subscription box, I will share with you the fun we have experienced! When I signed up for the box, I decided that it would be a special box just for Savy Baby and I to enjoy every month! While I have two older children, I thought it would be nice for the third child in line to get some new things every month since most of what she wears and plays with is hand-me-downs. Upon signing up, I provided her birth date and gender. I also selected to receive a 3 month subscription. 
The first month we received was November. We received:

Bumkins Melamine Plate - Ribbon: This is a great plate for serving Savy Baby her meals.  It's divided which helps us portion out multiple foods easily.  It's also cute and dishwasher safe!
Bumkins Super Bib - Pink Chevron: This bib is lightweight, easy to clean, waterproof and super cute! 
Plan Toys - Bunny Racer:Made from sustainable rubber wood with vegetable based colors, this little racer is perfect for Savy Baby to push around the house.  It's really cute and definitely well-made.
Barefoot Books - "Fast & Slow" Boardbook: This is a fun book all about opposites! It's a board book, so it's perfect for your baby/toddler to page through and "read" on their own or with you. 
Definitely a must have for any baby/toddler!

In December, we received:

Under the Nile - Scrappy Cat: This is made of 100% Organic Egyptian Cotton and each one is unique.  Also, this is a product produced specifically for Citrus Lane! It's perfect for Savy Baby to hold, hug and carry all over the house.  Also, now that she is over 1, perfect for in the crib for playtime before/after sleeping. 

Hape Counting Stacker: A fun wooden stacking toy that is made with wood and non-toxic paint. It's the perfect size for little ones to use and I love that the little pegs fall down if something falls onto them.  It's a great safety feature for this toy.

Chronicle Books - "Little Pea" Boardbook: This book is so cute! It's the perfect size for Savy Baby to hold and "read" and the story in it is absolutely adorable! Even the older kids love listening to us read it!

Love Child Organics Yogurt and Grain Food Pouches: We received the Pears/Bananas/Blackberries/Raspberries & Strawberries/Peaches/Bananas pouches.  These look really yummy and are fully are healthy organic foods with no fillers.  Unfortunately, since Savy Baby has FPIES and can't have dairy, she can't have them. However, her older siblings are happy to gobble them up!

So far, I really loved the boxes we received! They were full of things that we wouldn't normally have purchased.  Savy Baby has enjoyed using almost all of them and her siblings enjoy some of them too!
