Yenithing

This giveaway is now over with 171 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner - Shel!

I remember the days of bathing my two little ones. Not only would they get squeeky clean, but I would get soaking wet. Not my idea of fun. I wish I had known about Yenithing. Say what?!? A Yeni is a decorative apron designed to keep you dry when bathing your baby, toddler or pet.

They are really easy to use. Just slip the adjustable strap over your head, adjust and you're done. Use the bottom portion of the long apron to wrap up your child when it's time to dry them off. Brilliance meets convenience!

They come in 6 very cute patterns. I chose the pink seersucker because I absolutely love pink, but I had a hard time deciding because they were all great. They also offer personalization! This would make a terrific baby shower gift.

I took my Yeni over to my friend and her new baby daughter. She loved it! It worked great and we both had the "Why didn't I think of that" moment! I had to fight her for it, but I got to keep it. Don't worry, she'll be ordering her own!


My family has a golden retreiver. Yep, one big dog. It's a nightmare bathing our beauty, but someone's got to do it. The Yeni works great when Zeke decides to shake it up. It works wonderful with pets.

Now I know what you're thinking....you want one. Where can you get it? Right here at The Funky Monkey of course! Julie over at Yenithing is offering one of my lucky readers a Yeni of your choice. Fabulous!

  13. I have 3 dogs that I usually bath in the bathtub. Two of them hate baths and shake themselves constantly. I usually try to keep the shower curtain closed and I strip down to just my jeans when I wash them because I usually end up saturated. This would be a real help during bath time.

  15. I do have a funny bathtime story. My biggest dog Bo was outside one night and got severely skunked. I immediately brought him into the bathroom and stuck him in the bathtub. We have this suction cup leash that goes in the tub to keep the big baby inside because he thinks we're going to drown him.

    Of course, when I picked him up..I was covered in skunk juice, too. Both Bo and I were in the tub, me stark naked, with 5 huge cans of tomato juice. That poor dog was miserable because he got it most in the face and I had to wash his face with the tomato juice. He's a light brown color and he looked so funny with tomato juice all over him. I didn't look any better standing there stark naked, stinking like a skunk and pouring tomato juice all over the dog and me.

  23. I don't know if this is extra funny or not but I while giving my second son a bath when he was a couple weeks old he pooped all over me! I was nursing and it was that nice yellow mustard poo. Lots of fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the blue seersucker! What a great idea--I need this for both my baby and my dog!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeni can definately help me during bathtime--for both my baby and my dog. My baby loves to splash and my dog loves to shake! I usually get wet all over and have to change after I finish bathing them

    ReplyDelete
  26. Funny bathtime story (well funny to us)--So we are new parents and we are just learning all the tricks of the trade. My husband was bathing my son while I was cooking dinner. I heard "he peed on his face!" I couldn't believe what I just heard so I had to investigate. Evidently it's possible.

    ReplyDelete
  37. A funny bathtime story...when my now 7 year old son was about 3 or so, he was in the bathtub happily playing when he suddenly screamed one of those screams that makes a mommy's heart stop, I snatched him out of the tub like "what happened??!!" Turns out there was an ant in the tub...a dead one at that!!

  47. The Yeni would be a huge help during bathtime! First of all, it would be something to put on first so I don't have to go hunt down the towel. Second, when they're so young it's hard to pull them out of the tub and dry them with the towel without letting them lean against you. And being able to cuddle would be a plus! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Funny bathtime story? Well, my daughter does like to try to drink the bath water which both amuses and grosses me out, lol. And she likes to lay back in her infant tub and stick her feet straight in the air with a big grin on her face while I pour water over her feet. :-)

  60. Yeni can help me at bath time. My three year old thinks it is hilarious to leave wet hand prints on my clothes and the 19m old LOVES to splash. I will use it for years, even after the kids are older it will be great for washing the dog

    ReplyDelete
  61. funny bath tub story- my three year old heard the song "singing in the rain" once when I was watching the classic movie and thought it was "singing to the drain". I couldn't figure out why he kept putting his mouth to the drain and singing "goodbye water" until he told me he was singing to the drain like the song says LOL

    ReplyDelete
  62. Cam Green Gingham is muh fave. THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Funny bath story: he usually ALWAYS pees right when he hits the water, and it usually ALWAYS ends up on his face. GOO!

    ReplyDelete
  64. And, a Yeni can help us on those days when both of us can't be there - it'd make a solo job 10 times easier!

  68. As a mother of 6 I know how it is to transfer baby from bathing area to dressing area as well as when giving a young child a bath. Normally having to change clothes. This would help my busy daughter to stay dry and enjoy her child without having to redress after giving the baby a bath
