Favorite Finds Friday – Buddy

While my favorite find of the week is not directly related to food allergies and eczema, it has definitely helped with everything in many ways.   Over the past couple of months, TJ has grown to looooove his stuffed animals.  He not only carries them around with him but also loves to pile them up and roll around with them. (At first, while I thought it was beyond adorable, I worried the rubbing against his skin would cause hives or an eczema flare up. However, to date, it has never done that!)
Out of all of these stuffed buddies, Buddy  is his favorite.
Buddy comes on walks, grocery shops,  plays with us, and has brought TJ additional comfort.
In addition, Buddy comes on most car rides and has helped with keeping TJ from scratching at his eczema during most of these drives. During last school year, car rides were stressful for both of us. No matter my antics, many times TJ would throw his toys, take off his sneakers and scratch away at his eczema, sometimes causing it to bleed. Thank God for protecting us during those times as I am not sure how I didn’t get into an accident. Driving with screaming babies on traffic-packed highways is not an enjoyable experience. So far this year, we have only had a couple difficult rides. Thank you Buddy and your pals for that.
Also, with the start of day care again, Buddy helps bring TJ comfort when I drop him off. I no longer drop off just my son but also this awesome stuffed guy or one of his other pals. Mostly Buddy though…
This Friday, I thank Taggies for their excellent and adorable product and products.  Mornings are brighter and less stressful because of this stuffed pup. Last but not least, thank you Buddy for watching out for my little guy and bringing even more smiles to our days …

 


What is your child’s favorite toy? What was your favorite toy growing up? How did or does it bring comfort to your days?

    Too cute. We have a buddy too that is a favorite puppy. When Bailey was diagnosed with dust mite allergies I read that she should not sleep with stuffed animals. After some unofficially tests. We still break that rule. She just loves them so much and it does not seem to make her allergies worse. We are entering into a baby doll phase where she wants to bring a baby everywhere with her.

      When he first started to show an interest in his stuffed animals, we were super cautious too. However, only one of them seemed to cause irritation. We hid that one for now. (I know that sounds mean but it is better than random hives.) And we break the rule for Buddy and the rest of his pals because they have been totally fine. I think it is so adorable when young children carry around their stuffed animals and dolls. I certainly loved doing that as a child. Thank you for reading and sharing! Have a great weekend!
