just for fun shopping guide: baby gear bath book giveaway
I’m excited to begin working with our new advertiser, a baby registry, BabyLi.st this month. BabyLi.st is your all-in-one baby registry site. You can add items from any store on the web and save them all on one list. There’s no need to limit your choices to just what is available at the national chain retailers! Add your favorites from etsy, Ikea, a local boutique that you love or directly from the manufacturer. BabyLists are easy to create and easy to share. If you’ve figured out how to add a “Pin It” button to your toolbar, you’ll be able to add the easy “Add to Babylist” button as well.
To test BabyLi.st out, I created a sample baby registry at babyli.st/buy-modern-baby with 10 of my favorite registry items. It was easy to add the items, change the pictures, add descriptions and sort the list how I wanted it to appear. If you’re expecting, make sure you give BabyLi.st a try when putting together your gift registry!
I had such a great time putting together my “Ultimate Baby Registry,” that BabyLi.st and I will be giving away EVERYTHING on the list to one lucky winner!
If you have any friends or family who are expecting, you will want to send them our way because this is an incredible prize package! You can see all the items on BabyLi.st and I’m going to tell you a little something about all my picks right here as well.
1. First we have the Tiny Love 3 in 1 Rocker Napper- $100
This stylish multi-functional rocker converts from a baby seat to a comfy napper without disturbing your baby.
2. Loop Diaper Caddy from Boon Inc.- $50
This is one diapering accessory that I really wish we had when my kids were babies. The Loop stores all your diapering tools in an organized, stylish and easy-to-carry caddy.
We love our Soapster and I think it’s a must-have for any child’s bath. Parents can get foamy soap with just one hand and eventually, kids can get their own soap and wash independently.
Aden + Anais swadding wraps are known far and wide to be the softest, most beautiful and best natural muslin swaddling wraps for your modern baby. These are an absolute must-have on any baby registry.
Wearable blankets are another must-have in my book and I really love this bamboo/cotton one from Gunamuna. The material is lightweight and SUPER soft. The Gunapods are designed with the Wonderzip system that has 4 zippers all around the blanket so that you can change or dress baby easily.
It’s never too soon to start baby proofing. I’m impressed with the modern baby proofing products from Rhoost and had to add a starter set of cabinet locks, outlet covers and table corner guards to my Ultimate Baby Registry.
7. Flexi Bath from Prince Lionheart- $44 + $17 for the Infant Support
One of my favorite baby bathtubs is the Flexi Bath. It stores flat but pops open into a nice sized tub with a convenient drain in the bottom. With the addition of the new Flexibath Infant Support, this is the only baby bathtub you will need! This tub can be used for children up to 4 years old and will save water over using your regular bathtub. Take your pick of either a blue, green, pink or white Flexi Bath.
8. WallCandy Arts Gift Certificate- $50
Get started decorating the nursery with a $50 gift certificate for WallCandy Arts. Take your pick from their collections of wall decals, chalkboard and dry erase decals or removable wallpaper.
Everyone loves those monthly baby photos and take it from me, if you’ve got a set of these handy stickers ready to go, you’ll be so much more likely to actually capture a set of these precious moments before they fly by… because believe me… they do!
I wish I had an official set of monthly photos for my boys’ baby books. And speaking of baby books…
10. The last prize is a copy of This Is Your Book by Ryan Maconochi- $17
“This is Your Book” is the modern baby book you don’t have to be intimidated about filling in. It is easy to complete and will become a fun keepsake for your child when they are grown.
I’m thrilled that we’ll be able to share all of these great items (with a total retail value of over $430) with a lucky follower! The giveaway is open to US residents over the age of 18. It starts right now and ends June 11th, 2012 at 12:01 am EST. There are several ways to enter via Rafflecopter below.
