Win Some First-Time Mommy Gear

27 October 2020 890 views 64 Comments

I realize that many people who come to this site might be first-time moms or at least thinking about having a baby. While I won’t pretend that early motherhood is right for everyone, I did want to give someone out there a chance to win a great prize! And guess what? This post is one of hundreds giving away cool stuff this week! You can see a complete list of Bloggy Giveaways here.

What’s up for grabs? Your choice of one of the three following products:

“Go Hybrid” Organic Cotton Onesie

A little reminder that even thesmallest of us can take a stand, this 100% organic cotton onesie lets your baby tell everyone that “”I Only Ride Hybrid.”" The green carriage echoes the message on this white short-sleeve onesie, which encourages us all to make a difference. Facts and features: 100% organic cotton Great for boys and girls 0-3 months. Read more here.

Dainty Violet Bib and Burp Gift Set (Available personalized) Dainty Violet Bib and Burp Gift Set (Available personalized)

Made with 100% soft cotton interlock knit, the bib has a side Velcro closure for easy access. The burp cloth is woven in super soft absorbent cotton for those unexpected burps! A wonderful gift presented in a fabric zipper bag! The burp cloth can be personalized in matching purple with baby’s name (up to 10 characters) for an extra $5 (personalization not included if you choose to win this prize). Read more here.

“Dilly the Duck” Plush Growth Chart in Organza Bag

Babies grow up so fast, even though we’d love to slow it down just a tad. Dilly the Duck can’t slow down baby’s progress, but this delightful growth chart can keep track of every inch. Dilly’s adorable face with an orange beak tops the chart, with orange “”duck”" feet at the bottom. The growth chart measures approximately 46″” l x 6″”. Read more here.

How can you win? Read these directions VERY carefully, because otherwise you’ll be disqualified! Luckily, it is super easy - there are only two steps!

UPDATE: PLEASE REMEMBER - YOU MUST DO BOTH OF THE BELOW TWO STEPS TO ENTER. There are a lot of people just doing one, but your entry is no good unless you complete BOTH steps!

  1. Leave a comment on this post telling me which item you like best and why. You can change your mind later if you actually win, but entries that just say “pick me!” will be disqualified!
  2. Then, leave a valid comment on ANY OTHER post on this website. By “valid” I mean a real contribution, such as a tip, opinion, etc. Comments like “cool post” do not qualify.

So, you must leave TWO comments in order to qualify (and please, use the same name with both to make my life easier). That’s it though! These are some totally cute baby prizes, and winning is fairly easy! Want to earn additional entries? Here’s how:

  • You’ll earn ONE additional entry if you link back to any post on this website in a blog entry of your own. If the link back doesn’t show up as a trackback, leave a comment telling me about the link. Yes, blogroll links to the homepage or a specific category count!
  • You’ll earn TWO additional entry if you blog about this contest on your own website. Leave the link on this post as a comment if the trackback doesn’t show up.
  • You’ll earn THREE additional entries if you subscribe to this website via RSS. It is the honor system, but I know how many subscribers I have right now. Leave a comment here if you’ve subscribed!
  • You’ll earn a whooping FIVE additional entries if you cc me on an email to the correct department of your college alma mater (or a local college if you did not attend) telling them about this website and asking them to include an announcement about it in their student newsletter, daily announcement email, bulletin board, etc.

You don’t have to do any of the extra stuff to win - it just increases your chances. The winner will be chosen at random from all entries on November 1, 2020 at noon, and remember, I’ll be contacting you via email so make sure the one you use is valid (I’ll never share it with anyone). Sorry - this company only ships to the United States (including Puerto Rico) and Canada, so you must have a mailing address in one of these two countries to win.

  • Wingnut said:

    I would pick the growth chart. I’m not terribly impressed with the onesie, just because, well, it’s a onesie…it just isn’t very impressive. The bib set…well, I like to try to go with unisex stuff as much as possible, although it is very cute. So I like the growth chart thingymajobber.
