American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win the New Halo Bassinest Plus a Gift Set!

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

The mission of safe sleep for babies is something that HALO takes very seriously. While they’ve always been a leader in safe baby nightwear, such as their SleepSack Swaddle and SleepSack wearable blanket, they’re now introducing their first piece of gear, the innovative HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper.

Use the bassinet to have your baby sleep by your side, but not in your bed (which poses a suffocation hazard; if you don’t believe them, read about safe sleep habits from First Candle). Unlike traditional bassinets, this one can slide right next to you in bed, plus one side lowers down, making it easy to lift your baby out for feedings. Also, the mesh sides provide both good air flow and a clear view of your sleeping infant, for peace of mind. It’s good from the moment you bring your newborn home until he or she is about 5 months old.

The Bassinest just launched for $230 at Giggle and Right Start. But HALO is also generously giving one away here! HALO will send ONE (1) lucky winner a HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper and a HALO gift set (including a SleepSack, Swaddle and a SleepSack wearable blanket); a retail value of approximately $294.00.

To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day October 8th. More Qs about our giveaway? Read our official rules. Be sure to check back on October 9th and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

Congrats to our winner, Casey Hoffman! Please check your “other” message folder on Facebook in order to claim your prize.

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a Cloud b Sleep-Well Package

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

You know who sleeps well? A newborn, as demonstrated by my niece, below. When you’re one day old, what else are you going to do?

But as a mom of two, I know that this new baby is going to wake up and want to party like all of them do. And for that, my Bro and his wife are going to need strategies. Here are some from Cloud b (a company that focuses on products for baby’s sleep) that I agree with completely:

* You need a routine. If you do the same things night after night in the same order, eventually it signals sleep to a kid. Your routine can be bath/nursing/song/swaddle/lights out, or any variation, it’s just the consistency that matters.

* Swaddling helps most newborns. Not all, but most! It makes them feel like they’re still in the womb, and keeps them from waking themselves if they involuntarily startle.

* Noise helps nearly every infant. They are not used to the sound of silence because the womb is noisy 24/7 thanks to mom’s whooshing blood. A white-noise device helps babies feel at home. 

I’d also add that babies need to be put down awake so they settle themselves to sleep. I failed miserably at this; I nursed each of my babies to sleep and then carefully laid them down conked out, and let’s just say it didn’t do anyone any favors. I finally read Have a Great Sleeper, from Parents magazine advisor Dr. Harvey Karp, and now I get that I should have rocked them gently awake after laying them down, so they could resettle themselves in those first few minutes. It’s such good advice. Have any of you tried this and had it work?

And if any of you are struggling with sleep issues, Cloud b may be able to rescue you with a Sleep-Well package valued at more than $100. One lucky person who comments below will win the Cloud b Tranquil Turtle (which shines soothing dots of lights on the ceiling and plays sea sounds), Sleep Sheep, shown above (a great white-noise device), a Lullabag for safe sleep since you never want a blanket in the crib, and Twinkles to Go Octo, so you even have a soother for vacation. Leave a comment below, up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, June 26th. We’ll pick one lucky commenter at random to win. Here are the official rules. Goody luck!

 

Congratulations to out winner Roxanne Winkleman!

Parents’ Goodies: Win a Disney Comforter and $150 Walmart Gift Card

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Does your child’s room have a theme? Often we start out theming a baby’s room, and then as he or she grows, it becomes a bit of a hodge-podge of whatever they’re into at the moment. My daughter’s room started out red and flowery but then grew pink as she went through her pink phase, and now it looks like an American Girl store exploded into a stuffed-animal emporium. My son’s room had a transportation theme originally, but now he’s put Star Wars stickers all over one wall and pictures of penguins on another. And graffiti on the closet. Sigh.

What I need is a weekend to devote to cleaning/organizing/painting and yes, giving a real “look” to each of their rooms. Maybe it will happen this summer.

Part of what’s inspiring me is that the Disney folks came through our offices to talk up their Disney paint line, with lots of pictures of perfectly pulled-together kid rooms. I know our rooms won’t ever look as clean as their models, but at the same time, I know I can do better than we’re doing now!

Disney Paint is going to give two lucky commenters a Disney-themed comforter plus a $150 Walmart gift card to get going on your child’s room upgrade. You can choose between a Cars 2-themed comforter and a Disney Fairies comforter. All you have to do is leave a comment below; you can leave up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Thursday, June 13th. Check back here on the 14th and we’ll announce the winner (and contact the winner via Facebook; look for our message in your “other” Facebook message folder; I’ve included a picture so you can see where I mean!).

Read the official rules here. Goody luck!

Congratulations to our winners Nicole Amorosi Rollins and Nicole Crisafulli Grant!
