American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win Eric Carle Books and Rompers from Jaxxwear

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

One of my favorite books to read my kids is The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which gets sillier and sillier as the character eats more and more. (He finally feels better when he settles down, stops eating cake, and nibbles a green leaf. There is probably a message I should heed in there!)

In our February issue of American Baby, we show an adorable new line of rompers and playclothes based on Eric Carle’s books, The Very Hungry Caterpiller included. It’s fun to dress your little character in clothes that are covered with his or her favorite characters! Each romper is $37 and you can check Jaxxwear.com for stores.

And this week, Jaxxwear is offering TWO lucky winners each two shortalls from the Eric Carle collection as well as two of the author’s popular books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Each prize is worth about $113.

To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day February 5. More Qs about our giveaway? Read the official rules. Be sure to check back on February 6 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won.

Toys That Tame the Terrible Twos

Monday, October 14th, 2013

The tantrums and the insistent chorus of “No!”: There’s a reason that the time between Baby’s second and third birthdays is called the Terrible Twos. Help keep drama at bay with play that hones your toddler’s motor skills, improves her linguistic abilities, and fuels her imagination. Need some inspiration? Try these picks from Shop Parents.

• A well-rested kid is a happy kid. Help yours get his Z’s with a soothing song from the cuddly Lullaby and Goodnight Elmo.

• She wants to express herself by drawing everywhere: on the walls, the driveway, the sidewalk. With this chunky chalk designed for little fingers, you can let her.

• Reading is fundamental, and it’s one of the best ways to teach children about language. Inspire a lifelong love of books with stories such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.
