I have the honor and privilege of hosting this week's Sugar Bolus! And it is worth the wait... Trust Me!!
This week I am partnering with Too Sweet Boutique! And does she have a gift for you!!
Diabetes can be tough. It can be ugly. Being attached to a medical device 24 hours a day can be a drag.
I have always been of the opinion that if you've gotta do it (and we do), then you might as well do it in STYLE! And THAT is where Too Sweet Boutique comes in!
Amy, the creator of Too Sweet Boutique and ALL of the handmade works of art, is offering one lucky reader a $40 GIFT CERTIFICATE to her shop!!!
Have you been to the Too Sweet Boutique website to check out all of her amazing products??? I seriously have to reign myself in when I visit... because I would buy one of everything!
Amy is incredible! She personally makes all the pump pouches (for all pumps, Omnipods and cgms) she offers. And her work is simply amazing! Her creations are not just beautiful, they are delectable! The selection of fabrics for girls AND boys is incredible! There is so much to choose from! And you can even mix it up and use multiple fabrics! I tend to get overwhelmed by all the options... so I often tell Amy the main fabric I want and then leave the rest up to her! I trust her totally to create amazing pouches for Sweetpea! And she does! Every. single. time!
But these pouches are not just CUTE... they are comfortable and well made! Sweetpea often will get a new pouch, fall in love with it, and NEVER TAKE IT OFF! I mean it.... NEVER. Only for baths. I literally have to sneak them off of her in the night to clean them because she is THAT attached. So, obviously they are comfortable if she never wants to take it off! And they are well made because they stand up to that constant wear... on a very active five year old!
The other thing that I LOVE about Too Sweet pouches is that they are discreet. They fit against the body in a way that they don't bulge out. You'd never know she was wearing one... However, the pouches are so darling that she often WANTS people to see them!
And people do notice them! Sweets gets tons of compliments from adults and other children about her cute pouches! Of course, many people have no idea what is inside! But that's ok! Instant education lesson!!
In addition to being discreet, the snug fit makes them perfect for an active child. Sweetpea wears hers to gymnastics class. She flips and flops and tumbles and they never fall off. They never get in the way. They never bounce around.
Amy is not just the creator of Too Sweet Boutique... She is also an amazing D Mama! She writes this in her bio...
I am the mother of a beautiful little girl who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was only 9 months old. My husband and high school sweetheart was dx'd with type 1 at age 26 and has been pumping for nearly 10 years.I lost my father to type 1 diabetes when I was 5. I want a cure!Check out Amy's blog HERE.
I have an amazing son who is 12 and the picture of health, which I am beyond grateful for!
My little sweetie has multiple autoimmune diagnoses in addition to her diabetes, so our life with D is beyond complicated. I am dedicated to helping her live a full, happy life, no matter what it takes.
I'm a HUGE FAN! Can you tell?!? I think that Amy is one of the very best things about the DOC! She and her beautiful family are an inspiration!
I am also IN LOVE with Too Sweet Boutique! And I hope that you are, too! If you have not tried one of her pouches... it's a must!
