ReSqueeze {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

You know those little portable pouches of applesauce that kids are crazy about?  You know how they cost practically a dollar a piece?  When they’re in sight at a play date, my boys inhale them.  I’ve been so tempted to buy a box, but I just can’t stomach the cost!  Have you thought of having your own set of portable and reusable pouches that could hold applesauce, yogurt, pudding, etc,. and that they could cost you a one-time $3/pouch?

PrintIts true, ReSqueeze is a brand of reusable squeeze pouches for soft foods.  Your kids have a fun way to eat on the go and you have minimal mess to deal with.  I just might serve everything “Little Brother” eats in these pouches from now on, considering how he’s been in a food-throwing phase lately.

IMG_9005We’ve had the opportunity to review a similar kind of reusable pouch, but after trying out these ReSqueezes, the differences are very evident.  These pouches are made of a thinner pouch material, which is several layers of food grade plastic and high quality nylon, and I actually like that so much more.  The tough, thicker material of other pouches made it difficult for the kids to squeeze all the goodness up.  Secondly, I like this design much more.  Other pouches we’ve used (see below) have the spout on the side, which was kind of awkward for the kids to hold, and squeezing food up and over was super tricky.

pdIt probably won’t surprise you that ReSqueeze knew exactly what they were doing when they designed their pouches this way.  Laura, one of the founders, is a Registered Nurse and Lactation Consultant, and this product was born when their son starting eating solids and the one-use food pouches were getting too expensive.

Pouch_all_design1_94d3c893-fcad-4063-af76-f5b3afd8117cThe pouches fit a full 6 oz. of food.  Scoop in whatever you’d like with a soft texture.  Fill it about 3/4 full and rinse off any spills.  I can testify that the seal is very thick and tight.  Having the seal on the bottom doesn’t worry me at all.

IMG_9015Eat up!  Did I mention how adorable these pouches are?!  Like little pikachus!

Untitled-1My kids are hooked.  I’m buying more applesauce and yogurt than I ever have before, but they’re eating great, the mess is contained, and its not costing us another dime.  Visit the ReSqueeze shop to purchase these cute little pouches for your little ones!

One lucky winner will receive a 4-pack of pouches!  ($14.99 value)

I couldn’t agree more that no two children are alike.  I’m finding that is more and more the case with my two boys as they grow up.  One of the most obvious divergent characteristics I’ve been picking up on lately is how ‘dependent’ my oldest seems to be, and how ‘independent’ my youngest is.  Child #1 will find a problem, try to tell me what it is, and wait for me to fix it, while Child #2 will dive right in and solve the issue himself.  Feeding is no different.  #1 preferred to be fed for quite a while, but #2 has been grabbing the spoon out of my hand and attempting to feed himself for several months now.  Since he’s not quite a year old yet, there is a LOT of spilled food, splatters, and nasty floors around here!  I have a few friends who really like this plastic and portable food container called Yummi Pouch for its on-the-go usefulness, and since I was able to review several of these pouches, I found them to be the perfect solution for the super-independent baby who wants to feed himself!

These little pouches are fabulous!  They are reusable and refillable, so a set of six for $14.99 will keep you in business for as long as you’d like.  They are dishwasher safe and can even be put in the freezer.

They are made of a very sturdy plastic with an intense seal, so you don’t have to worry about any leaking or any explosion out the top.  The pouches expand on the bottom and can hold up to 6oz. To easily expand it, you can blow into the mouth piece with the top sealed or just use your fingers to expand apart.  The pouch can hold probably 3 heaping tablespoons of yogurt, which is just right for the baby.  He LOVES being able to feed himself, and I love that I’m not cleaning up yogurt splatters from him waving a spoon around!  No spoon required!

The toddler is a big fan as well 🙂 He keeps pulling these out of the cupboards and begging me to fill them with food–yogurt, applesauce, anything squishy…

We took a few of these on our big roadtrip earlier this month, and they were great in the car.

While I think these pouches are fantastic, what I’m really loving more than anything is this Grass Countertop Drying Rack from Yummi Pouch!

81qQuhRzheL._SL1500_The whole time that “Rocket” was using bottles, I never found a good system for where to place the bottles and tops while they were drying.  They really took over our counter, and since I always needed them accessible, they rarely got put away for long, before I had to pull them out again.  The counters were always soppy, cluttery, and all the plastic really distracted from the clean kitchen I was trying to maintain.

This grass is the perfect thing for all my assortment of bottles, and SO IDEAL for drying these Yummi Pouches!  When you expand the bottom of the pouches, they can stand up by themselves and generally stay open pretty well by themselves, but I still worry about them drying completely after being washed, so the grass blades on this drying rack keep the pouches open, upside down to drain, and kept in a contained space off my counters!  I’m just so happy to have found a system that works, and I think its kind of fun next to my plants in the kitchen!  It measures a little larger than 9 x 9 inches, and comes in two pieces so you could rinse it off if desired.

Yummi Pouch has some other way fun and useful “accessories” for your pouches–like useful funnels, markers, and even mustache stickers!  And there is even a Yummi Pouch Kids Boutique with some adorable tutus and leg warmers!

From one mother to another, I will definitely be recommending these to a other mommy friends!  Thanks Yummi Pouch!

TWO winners will each receive a set of 6 Yummi Pouches!
