Young Bananas Sponsorship Spotlight for A Blogtastic Extravaganza Plus Review *** Extra Entries***



Young Bananas Children's Boutique is full of great handmade items for babies and kids made with designer fabrics. Of course, there are some items for mom thrown in there too. The "Just for mom" section is filled with this makeup bag, breast pads and diaper bags! Bethany from Young Bananas has been sewing and crafting since she was a girl and the passion to create has only grown. She now loves to sew for her three kids and you! Young Bananas carries just about any accessory you can think of; bibs, shoes, jumpers, and hair bows.

Minky Blanket - Dino Dudes
This all purpose blanket looks so soft and snuggly!


Gnomeville Reversible Jumper 0-6mos-4T
My children are obssessed with gnomes. This jumper would be perfect for my daughter!

Check out Bethany's shop to see the other great item she has! You won't be disappointed!

I'd like to thank Bethany for being a sponsor for A Blogtastic Extravaganza!

The Review:

Not Your Mama's Burpies - Set of Two Organic Bamboo Burp Cloths - Teatime


Bethany sent me a set of "Not Your Mama's Burpies" burp cloths to review. These arrived just in time. My dryer has been "eating" certain items, mainly the ones i need the most (i.e diaper inserts and burp cloths) so when I got these in the mail, I washed them right up! I also have forceful letdown (my milk flow is so strong that it sprays everywhere and can sometimes choke my little one) and my kids spit up ALL the time until they are about 12 weeks old (when your milk supply evens out). Young Bananas offers so many cute fabrics to choose from. The Burpies are designer cotton on one side and bamboo on the other. At 10"x 15", they are the perfect size to lay over your shoulder. They are turned and top stitched for durability.



Materials: Cotton and Bamboo

Care: Very easy; throw in the washer and you are good to go! I followed the washing/drying instructions and noticed that the bamboo side shrunk slightly, whereas the cotton side did not. This of course does not effect the usability of the item but your can tell when looking at it. Perhaps if i took an iron to it it might look more even but, really, why would I want to iron something my baby is just going to spit up on? Perhaps a pre-washing of the fabric before construction could help with this issue.

Cost: $12.00

Buy It: To purchase your very own "Not Your Mamas Burpies" visit the Young Bananas shop!

Overall Opinion: I really liked these burpies! The bamboo was super soft and really absorbent. They come in really cute fabrics and are affordable. The craftsmanship of these is really nice; you can tell that time and effort and love were put into these! These are great to keep handy and throw in your bag as you head out the door. A must have diaper bag essential!
