Janie Burkett’s Must-Haves & Favorite Things

check out this mama's faves

Mom Next Door and The Biscuits Bar‘s Janie Burkett shares her favorite things from strollers and sleep formulas to what she does to stay active. Read the full interview with Burkett here.

Fave Family Product
“I love the UppaBaby VISTA because it gives the flexibility to put three babies at different ages all on the same stroller. Also, they have a style called Bryce, the name of our oldest baby who passed in the NICU.”

Hack for New Moms
“Try the Angelcare Baby Bath Support. If you have a single basin kitchen sink, the Angelcare will fit right in. It is much easier on your back to bathe a baby in the kitchen sink!”

What Gets Her Through the Night
Neora Wellness Chews Sleep Formula helps me fall asleep quickly while still being able to get up with the baby in the middle of the night if he wakes.”

Menu Items She Loves
“My favorite Biscuit Bar menu item is The Hoss. It was named after my daddy (whose “Grandpa” name was Hoss), as he passed away just two months before we opened our first restaurant. The biscuit is our best seller and features fried chicken, sausage gravy, bacon, jack cheese and honey butter inside one of our fresh and fluffy biscuits.

My kids absolutely love The Biscuit Bar’s Chicken Nuggets Kids Meal! It comes with tater tots or apples, a drink and a small scoop of rainbow sherbet. Obviously the sherbet is their favorite part—hello, sugar!—but they love dipping their chicken into our house-made ranch as well.”

Cause Close to Her Heart
“We feel so passionate about March of Dimes. Every November, we do a big fundraising campaign called ‘Biscuits for Brycee.’ People can round up their change or donate a separate amount, but our main fundraiser is selling our Biscuit Nuggets dessert. During that month, 100% of the price of all Biscuit Nuggets is donated to March of Dimes.”

For Moving and Grooving
“For post-pregnancy workouts, I got the Peloton bike and love it! They have workouts that are only 10 or 15 minutes long. I don’t really have time for more than that!”
