Pacapod Diaper Bag

Hosted By: Formality of Frugality

I never found a diaper bag that was convenient for us. They were either too small, too big, or didn’t have compartments I found functional enough. We resorted to using a backpack, which was alright for awhile, but again, compartment issues. Bottles would fall and get tossed around. Annoying. I came across this giveaway for a Pacapod diaper bag, the first I’ve ever heard of it. It looks AMAZING. There are pockets for keys and cellphones. Plus the fabric patterns are gorgeous. I’m in love with the one pictured above. Ends November 18th, 2011.

We had a travel system for when our son was an infant, but when it was time to upgrade to a big boy seat, I was overwhelmed trying to decide what was the absolutely BEST for him. In the end my mother-in-law bought us a giant gray seat and I honestly don’t even recall the name of it. Since money was tight, we accepted the gift and considered it a done deal in the car seat department. It works fine, but we hate it. Hate that way it fits in our car, hate the way it has a tendency to slide so easily (yes it is installed correctly). So we’re in the market for another car seat. Two, actually. Now that we’re alternating who picks the kid up, having two car seats would be convenient. Enter the Combi Coccoro car seat. I love the look of it! And the reviews online are all great. This would be a great win for anyone needing a car seat for an infant/child up to 40lbs! Ends November 25th, 2011.

IntelliGender Test

Hosted By: In The Know Mom

When I was pregnant in 2009/2010, the first 20 weeks I was anxious to find out the sex of the baby. I thought for sure it was a girl. All the old wives tales on pregnancy symptoms pointed to a girl. I have zero patience, so making it to that BIG ultrasound was stress-inducing for me. I wish I had known about IntelliGender! I know it’s not 100% accuracy, but 80+% is still good in my book! Now that we’re actively TTC #2, I’d love a girl (we had a boy in 2010!), this would be fun to try out! Ends November 13th, 2011.

We’ve used a variety of brands of diapers on our 15 month old son. It seems as though with each size, a different brand works better. Right now he’s in a size 4 and we use Pampers, exclusively. For some reason we’ve encountered leaking problems with the other brands. I find that Pampers are slightly wider and more loose than say, Huggies, who tend to be very stiff and tight-fitting – not good for an active toddler. I always jump at the chance to win some diapers. They add up quick, so to save a few bucks and win our preferred brand of diapers would be awesome! Not only do you get the diapers, but you’ll get a box of wipes AND a Let’s Rock Elmo toy! Diapers and wipes to please mom and dads wallets and a toy to please the kid, you can’t beat that! Ends November 14th, 2011.

Being a first time mom, I’ve definitely learned my lessons on what-to-do and what-not-to-do. Since we’re hoping for a second, these lessons will come in handy. For one, I want to breast feed as long as possible! And second, I’d love to make my own baby food! The Baby Bullet System would be an amazing win for that very reason. You can blend your own fruits and veggies, freeze for later use, and save a fortune by not buying jars upon jars of baby foods at the grocery store. I love this healthier, organic approach and hope I get the chance to use it! Ends November 14th, 2011.

Cleanwater Infant Tub

Hosted By: In The Know Mom

As a new mom, I had a hard time giving my son his first bath. I was terrified that what felt like luke-warm water to me, would be scolding hot to my delicate baby. I only had one of those basic, plastic tubs you can get for $10 at any box store. Thankfully I’ve never scorched my son and he loves baths. However, this would be a great solution for our next child! The 4moms Cleanwater Infant Tub has a built-in digital thermometer. Now you’ll never have to question the water comfort level! Ends November 13th, 2011.

I’m a huge fan of Peg Perego products. They have a great line of modern, yet functional, baby/kids products. Like this amazing high chair! We’re officially actively trying for #2, so I’m trying doing my best to enter lots of baby contests. With #2 we’ll be down to one income and money will be tight. I greatly appreciate these amazing giveaways and the chance to win useful items I would not be able to afford to purchase. We have just a booster seat for my son right now, but he’s definitely worn it out, and I must say I’m not a fan of having him bang my vintage table. Next time around we’ll have a regular high chair! This Peg Perego Tatamia chair would be an awesome choice. The seat reclines, the height is adjustable, the tray is removable for easy cleaning, the features can’t be beat! Ends November 12th, 2011.

When my son was born, we didn’t have a bassinet and couldn’t afford one at the time. We used the Pack N Play. It was highly inconvenient and basically I had 3″ between the Pack N Play and my bed to get up, not fun when you’re also recovering from a c-section. Since we’re trying for a 2nd, I’d love to get my hands on a bassinet. It would work out so much better for us. This beautiful 3-in-1 wooden bassinet by Kolcraft is not only pretty, but highly functional! Casters for easy movement, storage underneath, etc. Definitely a great piece! Ends November 14th, 2011.

When I was pregnant, I was pretty damn naive when it came to stretch mark prevention and post partum care. Let me tell you, that hit me like a ton of bricks. I wish someone would have told me about The Spoiled Mama and their huge selection of body products for your pregnant body!! My cousin-in-law is pregnant with her first and I’d love to get her one of the gift baskets available on the website. So go check it out for a chance to win a $75 gift certificate. This could be an amazing gift for yourself or a pregnant friend! Ends November 2nd, 2011.
