American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win Goods from Gerber!

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Every baby looks like he or she could be the Gerber Baby, no? But the sketch is of a woman named Ann Turner Cook, who was 5 months old in 1929 when her neighbor drew her for what would become the iconic baby face. She visited our offices a few years ago, and we loved it! 

Gerber is running a nationwide baby-photo search on Facebook right now. The winner will appear in an ad campaign but even better, get $50,000! You have until August 26th to upload your little one’s photo. Best of luck, maybe your own kid will be the 2012 Gerber Baby!

As for Gerber’s baby food, my own daughter was an infant when they debuted their first organics. Now, the organic recipes come in pouches that are easy to throw in your diaper bag and less heavy in your grocery bag than the traditional glass jars. (Though the jars can be recycled, so they have that going for them.) I have such fond memories of planning out baby Grace’s meals. She loved prunes and apricots most of all, so we’d often do one of those for breakfast, but always got a green vegetable in at lunch or dinner. It’s still pretty much the same for her at age 10; fruit with breakfast and broccoli or peas or salad with dinner!

I’m happy to say that Gerber is going to give one lucky family almost $110 worth of free baby food just for leaving a comment at this post. Tell me your baby’s favorite puree flavor, perhaps? You have from now through the end of the day on Wednesday, August 8th, to leave a comment. We’ll randomly pick one person to win 15 Gerber Graduate Puffs, 15 Gerber Graduate Lil’ Entrees, and 25 Gerber Organic 2nd Food Pouches, a $108.95 value. You can read the official rules here. Good luck!
