American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a $300 High Chair from BabyBjorn

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

My niece is fully onto solids. On most Tuesdays I do Facetime with her, and I eat my dinner while my brother spoons food into her mouth. She seems fascinated to watch me eat while being fed herself! 

This week, when she was done, she started to try and dismantle her high chair. The one she is using is portable and not super sturdy. That got me thinking, gear-obsessed editor that I am, about the Baby Bjorn High Chair. It’s sturdy as a rock, great for small spaces, has a comfy shape and footrest to keep a kid sitting, and wipes down quickly. The $300 pricepoint stops a lot of people, but I would maintain that if you watch the video on the product, you can understand why the design and features are worth it.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that it isn’t giant; a baby doesn’t need a big seat (and you don’t want to clean one). This high chair fits a 5-month-old to a 3-year-old, and BabyBjorn is giving it away to ONE lucky winner. (But not to my brother! He’s going to have to pony up.)

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a Gerber Graduates Basket Worth $200

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Here is my #tbt: My daughter, Grace, demanding dinner. I remember trying to explain to a childless colleague in the office that when a toddler is hungry, even a 20-minute supper is too much to ask. Two toddler lessons we all learn: When a toddler says she has to go to the bathroom, she means right now, and when she says she’s hungry, she means very and seriously now.

My main strategy has always been to serve my kids an appetizer while I cook dinner, usually something like fruit or crackers. But we all have days when you just need to feed a kid immediately, and that’s why Gerber makes Graduates Lil Entrees. I kept them on hand for times when I wanted to feed Grace, then eat something more elaborate with my husband later on. It wasn’t every night, because we are huge fans of family dinners, but it definitely happened!

Gerber just released four new toddler entrees: Mashed Potatoes & Meatloaf Nuggets in Gravy with Carrots, Peas & Corn; Creamy Chicken Stew with Vegetables with Green Beans & Carrots; Spiral Pasta in Turkey Meat Sauce with Green and Yellow Beans; and Yellow Rice & Chicken with Vegetables in Sauce with Green Beans and Carrots. There are also two new flavors of their Bitty Bites multi-grain snacks: blueberry and strawberry. 

To celebrate, Gerber is giving away a gift basket full of baby food from its Gerber Graduates line for TWO lucky winners. Each gift basket retails at $200 each!
