Bonny & Bounce Review by Nazia – July 2019

As some of you know I’m almost 32 weeks pregnant with my first baby. Both my husband and I are absolutely ecstatic and can’t wait to meet our little girl but it’s also a little scary to know our lives are about to change forever! Subscription boxes are all the range now, from beauty and skincare to men’s grooming boxes, so when I found out about Bonny & Bounce I was thrilled to see a box for expectant/new mothers – anything that helps make parenthood smoother is a plus in my books. So, I’d like to say a big thank you to Nell for sending out this wonderful box for me to review!

If you missed my live unboxing, you can catch it here on our YouTube channel:

What I thought:

The items are packaged in a medium sized recyclable box much like a shoe box, that has the Bonny & Bounce logo printed on the top. The products are wrapped in a sky-blue tissue paper, and inside the box I found the contents card detailing the products within:

Mam Oral Care Rabbit – Pink

Oral care rabbit cleans baby’s mouth even before first teeth and easily removes plaque and bacteria. Just slip an index finger into one of the ears. As a first time mum I didn’t even know things like this existed! The soft microfiber material is said to be gentle on baby’s tender and sensitive gums, and not only is this handy rabbit great for cleaning it’s also ideal for cuddling and playing with too. I’ve heard lots of positive things about the mam brand so I’m really looking forward to trying this product out when my little one arrives. I’m hoping the fun design can distract my bubba from teething pains.

Burt’s Bees Nourishing Lotion

Formulated with buttermilk, shea butter and sunflower seed oil, Burt’s Bees Baby Nourishing Original Lotion leaves baby’s skin smooth and super soft. It absorbs quickly, will not irritate delicate skin and provides scientifically proven moisturisation up to 24 hours. I was pleasantly surprised to see this brand in this box as I adore Burt’s Bees’ products; I regularly use this brand but haven’t had the pleasure of using this particular product before. I’ve been testing out this product on my skin and I must say it smells so lovely. It sinks into the skin effortlessly leaving the skin feeling soft and hydrated and a little really goes a long way! I love that the ingredients are almost all natural too.

Philips Avent Pink Edition Classic+ 2 Feeding Bottles

Clinically proven to reduce colic, as your baby drinks, the unique valve on the teat flexes to allow air into the bottle instead of your baby’s tummy. Designed to prevent leakage whilst feeding. If I am able to, I plan to breastfeed but will also express so that my partner is able to bond with our baby during feeding time too. These bottles are a great size and a lovely pink colour, I was surprised that there were also two bottles in the box! I like that it comes with less parts, so the bottle is easy to clean and is quick to assemble, just what you need when your baby is hungry. It’ll be interesting to see how well the anti-colic system works with my little one.

Aden and Anais Bandana Bib

Made of four layers of 100% cotton muslin, this stylish staple features adjustable snaps for a stay put fit that grows with your baby. This bib is ultra-soft and comes in a lovely pattern. It has adjustable buttons at the back to secure to you little one and is fairly large and wide to catch dribble and spit up. It feels very durable so I’m hoping with the four layers it’s as absorbent as it looks.

Skip Hop Bandana Buddy Activity Unicorn

Little ones stay active as baby explores rattles, crinkles and more. This colourful character’s soft bandana teether detaches for mum to wear around her wrist for quick access. Perfect for multi-sensory play, this cute companion is ideal for fun at home or on-the-go. I love this unicorn toy as it is full of textures, patterns and sounds so you know little hands are going to be kept busy. It attaches easily to a pram, car seat or carrier and is great for sensory play. I’m looking forward to watching my little girl play and interact with this toy.

Verdict:

Finding ways to juggle life as a new parent can be difficult…That’s where Bonny & Bounce come in! This subscription box brings joy to parenthood by helping mums and dads discover the best premium baby products from brands they’ve grown to love – that’s the essence of what Bonny and Bounce is all about! Discovering new products each month is exciting and both you and your baby can enjoy monthly treats. Unlike other subscription boxes, Bonny & Bounce only include full size items that you can thoroughly trial and that you will want to use again and again!
