Product Spotlight: Win a free yoomi bottle warming system!

Zippyz - yoomi GiveawayWe absolutely love this awesome product that makes life easier for moms – you have to check it out! yoomi is a self-warming bottle; just press a button and in 60 seconds baby’s milk is warm!

Yoomi – The award winning, self-warming, 3-in-1 baby bottle system.

It comes with one eight-ounce bottle, a warmer, and a charging pod.

Most babies prefer drinking warm milk, but warming their bottles while you’re out of the house can be a challenge. You can heat the bottle briefly in the microwave, but that risks overheating, which can damage the vital nutrients within.

The Yoomi bottle contains a unique warmer that’s activated at the push of a button. This triggers an internal solution to warm in less than a minute. When the bottle is tipped for drinking, your baby’s milk will be gently warmed as it flows through specially designed channels outside of the warmer, so by the time the liquid reaches the nipple, it’s at a natural breast milk temperature. The self-warming baby bottle can stay warm for up to an hour!

The liquid is safe from spoiling because if it isn’t being consumed, it never becomes warm. It remains cool until your baby drinks it. This also saves you from reheating half-finished bottles.

The internal, non-toxic solution is a gel that’s similar to those used in hand warmer packs, so it’s entirely safe. Just in case, they have added a food colorant so leaks are visible and a bitter taste so your baby will immediately stop if he/she accidentally drinks some.

The best part is that the Yoomi can not overheat your babies milk. There is no possible way for it to expose your baby to liquid that’s too hot.

Vents in the nipple ensure that air does not bubble through when your baby drinks, which helps prevent colic.

You can even use the bottle all by itself. It’s lightweight and ergonomically designed, which makes it easy for your baby to hold. The whole unit assembles without you ever having to touch the nipple, which keeps it sterile. The wide mouth makes preparation and cleaning easy. The nipple is a natural breast-shape that’s easy to latch. This is great for helping your baby transition from the breast to the bottle.


Yoomi Features & Benefits

  • Yoomi is ideal for traveling or busy days.
  • It’s great for night-time feedings.
  • Vent system helps prevent colic.
  • It warms liquids in 60 seconds, or ever faster on the warming station.

  • The system is 100% portable – no plugs, batteries, or begging for hot water in stores/restaurants.

Things to do with a 6 Month Old

My daughter is just about 6 months. She is at that time in her life where she is awake much more, can sit up on her own and flips out everytime I get up to walk a few feet away. She  has major separation anxiety right now! So here are a few activities to play with your 6 month old to pass the time!

1. Let the baby play in the grass! – I have noticed touching and pulling at grass leads to many uninterrupted minutes of play by herself!

2. Have the baby look into a mirror – Alexa loves to look in the mirror and make noises and faces at herself!

3. Bubbles – I have NEVER met a baby that doesnt like bubbles. Best Bubbles are from Gymboree.

4. Have A Conversation  It’s so much fun when babies start to babble. When your baby starts “talking”, talk back. With Alexa, I wait for pauses in her babble, and then I babble back at her or say things like, “Oh yeah?,” “You don’t say,” “Isn’t that interesting,” “Tell me More” etc and then wait for her to babble more.

5. Talk Talk Talk Talk – Carry the baby all around the house and introduce her/him to EVERYTHING.. I am always saying stuff like “Alexa this is the refridgerator lets look inside and see all the food, blah blah”

6. Stacking – Stack blocks, your baby may not be able to stack anything yet but will like to watch you stack things and then will love knocking it down! Talk about what you’re doing: “I’m stacking the blocks. Look, one, two, three. One on top of the others.” Then when your baby knocks them down, laugh, and then start another stack.

7. Out of Reach – Take an interesting item and set it down just outside your baby’s reach. After a moment be helpful and hand the toy over if needed, but you may find that your baby soon loves to scoot, crawl, and wiggle around to get things. I also like to sit or lay a few feet away from Alexa playing with a toy myself. Sometimes it will catch her interest and she’ll come crawling over to check it out.

8. So Big – I sit Alexa on my lap and hold her hands and say, “How big is Alexa?” Then I raise our hands over her head and say, “Soooooo big!” I do this two or three times, and then the next time I say, “How big is Alexa?” she raises his hands on her own. So cute!

9. Textures Crawl – Arrange different textured items on the floor together – use a bathmat, door mat, carpet, shower curtain, etc. Anything that has a different texture and takes up a bit of space. Then crawl around on the items and talk about the textures. “This one is smooth. Do you feel the bumps? Ooh, soft!” And so on.

10. Diaper Changes – MOST IMPORTANT!! If diaper changes seem like an irritating chore, you’re not doing them right! First make sure you are using  Zippyz baby pajamas, to assure you are keeping your baby covered and warm, and making your diaper changes quick and easy. Also, make diaper changing into a game that you can both look forward to over and over throughout the day. Peek-a-boo with a diaper, Tickling, or singing a cute song about body parts (Tony Chestnut or Head Shoulders Knees and Toes)

Launching Zippyz

Little Trendyz is so excited to finally be launching Zippyz! Zippyz are patented footed infant pajamas that zip from the foot to belly (belly to foot) so babies can stay covered and warm while parents can change diapers quick and easy! This was the brainchild of mom Lisa Youngelson. Lisa thought of Zippyz late one night while she was changing her son Ryan’s diaper. She was so frustrated by the endless mis-snapping of all of Ryans baby pajamas, she knew there had to be a better way! She found zip-up pajamas, but they left her son exposed and cold when she went to change his diaper.. She couldn’t understand why there wasn’t an infant pajama out there that kept babies covered and warm and allowed parents to change a diaper quickly.. After lots of research, she realized there was nothing and decided to invent Zippyz! In August, Lisa welcomed her second baby, Alexa and has been using Zippyz since day one! Not only is Lisa loving diaper changes, but she now has more time for sleep, cuddles with her new baby, and snuggle time with Ryan. Below are pictures of Lisa with Ryan and her beautiful new daughter!

Hello from Zippyz by Little Trendyz!!

As we embark on a new year and the exciting launch of sales with our new website www.littletrendyz.com, we thought it would be a good idea to take stock in how it all began and where we are going!

Creating Zippyz has been an epic journey, with many ups and downs. It took exactly 2 years to the day to take a germ of an idea to a product we are proud of and can introduce to new parents everywhere. It feels like it was just yesterday, when we were sitting on Lisa’s couch and she came up with the idea.  Ryan (Lisa’s Son) was just 2 months old.  Although Erica didn’t have a baby, she knew the idea was genius and we decided to partner up. Now came LOGISTICS!

How do 2 best friends on 2 different coasts, with full-time jobs, hectic lives, and no background in clothing design or manufacturing create an innovation in baby sleepwear? Good question  – one with a VERY long answer.  But to make it short and sweet, it took allot of trial and error, determination, and many sleepless nights.

The day after Lisa shared her idea, we set off to JoAnn’s fabrics with Erica’s mother and baby Ryan in tow, we had no idea what would be in store for us.  We knew what we wanted and we knew we had good taste – it was just a matter of making it happen.

We wanted a product that felt great, had cute designs and was user friendly.  After hand drawn designs, searching for pattern makers, cold calling manufacturers all over the world (many laughs along the way) – we finally have something truly great.  Zippyz are an innovation in baby sleepwear that will forever change the way diapers are changed.   The product is everything we set out to achieve. First off, they make diaper changes quick and easy and keep babies comfortable, covered, and warm at the same time. Second, Zippyz are insanely soft! They are an amazing blend of bamboo and organic cotton.  Bamboo is our secret ingredient! Eco friendly, breathable, and anti bacterial – it’s the perfect fabric for baby-wear.

Our patent pending (we should hear any day now) design zips from foot to belly – keeping baby’s chest covered and making changing so easy.

We decided to blog about our journey because we are 2 friends with an idea that decided to take a chance. If we can inspire someone to follow their dreams through our story, it would be that much sweeter.

We will keep blogging and keep you posted on the evolution of Little Trendyz and our signature item, Zippyz.

In November, we had a soft launch for Zippyz at the Mother of all Baby Showers event in Tampa to a great response. The crowd of interested expectant and new moms around the booth was huge! We were so excited to see how many people loved Zippyz and the feedback was amazing!  Look out for us next in Miami at the Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower event January 29th!
