When my daughter was a newborn, I carried her in a sling, which was great, but not always the MOST practical way to get around with her. As soon as she was old enough to sit in a lightweight stroller, I started doing the endless research for which lightweight stroller I wanted to purchase. And that's when I stumbled across Aprica. Vibrant colors, sleek design, easy to move, and at barely more than 13 pounds, easily one of the lightest strollers on the market. Yes, please!

My family recently moved into a brand new house, but unfortunately, we've yet to fill it up with the furniture we need. Like a kitchen table. We have one in mind, but we're very indecisive, so we haven't made the plunge to buy it yet. And that means we and the kids eat in the living room or wherever else is convenient at the time. And as many of you can guess, with a toddler, that's just downright crazy. I'm trying to convince my husband that we need to buy a high chair, if not just to keep the little one still while eating, then for the sake of our carpets. But he doesn't want to pay too much for one, and I don't want to settle for a plastic one with tons of parts that doesn't really fit our decor. I know, I know, it's baby gear, it doesn't have to fit in, yada yada yada. But I would like it too, and that's why I love the Carter's high chair from Summer Infant. It has dark espresso stained wood and removable padding, which is pretty near perfection in my book. That's why I'm so happy that Natural Mommie will be giving one of her readers this very high chair, and I sooooo hope that reader is me. But if not me, then you. lol Please go enter for yourself and check out the rest of her blog while you're there.
Mommy Katie has done it again and brought yet another great giveaway to her readers! What amazing prize does this one include? Gourmet Sandwich cookies from Dancing Deer Baking Co. ! Yummy! These cookies look so scrumptious! Included in the adorable gift box twelve individually wrapped sandwich cookies. Six each of their new flavors, Boston Cream Pie and Chocolate Peppermint. Now, I'm a chocoholic, and I know my husband would probably elbow me out of the way for the Boston Cream Pie, but I think if I were to win this giveaway, I'd gift it to my parents. The cookies and the container are just too cute to keep for myself. Would you give it away or keep it for yourself? You'll never know the answer to that unless you enter the giveaway! Visit Mommy Katie to find out more about these cookies and to enter for your chance to win.

Ragababe is a relatively new cloth diapering company that is taking the diapering biz by storm. I have never heard of a single complaint from Ragababe users, and you can bet that had they been around before I made my own diapering purchases, these would have been in my cart for sure. The only negative aspect of Ragababe diapers is the somewhat steep price tag, but even that is understandable if you've researched their product. They use more expensive materials to manufacture their diapers which result in a superior diaper. And they produce their diapers in the USA instead of outsourcing work to other countries. That means a slightly more expensive diaper for us, but it's a great way of supporting local families, and it keeps a trustworthy diaper on our babies' butts. :)
Now here is your chance to try Ragababe products for free. Head over to the Ragababe facebook page, like them, and check out how to enter yourself into their Black Friday contest. It's simple to enter, it spreads the word about a great company doing great work, and it's a great chance to win amazing products for your little one. Good luck!

My family and I recently moved into a new, larger home. The extra space is wonderful, but it's also currently empty while we try to decide how to decorate. We are lucky enough to live in Hawaii for the next few years, so we have a back patio and porch that we can use year long. Well, we can use them if they had any kind of seating available. Right now, they are empty. I'm very decisive when it comes to how I want to decorate my home, and I go back and forth between my options for what feels like forever. Or at least what feels like forever to my husband. Sigh. He just does not get it.
I've been looking for pieces that are unique. I want fun, casual, comfortable, affordable, and different than what every neighbor on the block owns. And thank goodness I found Wind and Weather chair swings! I love these! The designs are gorgeous, and they look so comfortable. I can just imagine myself sitting in one, enjoying the breeze and a good book while the girls play in the yard. And an added bonus: I showed my husband and he immediately knew they were the right chairs for us. I've entered to win one from Thanks, Mail Carrier and so can you. Simply visit http://www.windandweather.com to check out their chair swings and other great products, then enter the giveaway at http://www.thanksmailcarrier.com/2010/11/checking-our-list-14-wind-weather-chair.html
Whoever wins this prize is an incredible lucky person. Good luck!

We all know one of the hottest fads among kids right now are Pillow Pets. They're a cute concept, really, but if I could get my child a similar product that has improved features, I would. Enter Zoobies. Zoobies are adorable, super soft, plush animals similar to Pillow Pets, but I think they have improved on Pillow Pets features and have added more. Zoobies are not only plush animals that double as pillows, but they turn into blankets as well. And there are so many Zoobie friends to choose from. Koalas, turtles, horses, wolves, cats, dogs, tigers, bears, and lions, oh my. Okay, okay, they may not have lions (yet), but they have so many more than listed here. And did I mention they are adorable? If you think your child would enjoy a Zoobie of his or her own, head over to The Baby Store Plus blog. Anna is going to give away a Zoobie of choice to TWO DIFFERENT WINNERS! Yep, two incredibly lucky children will be enjoying Zoobies this Christmas courtesy of The Baby Store Plus, and your kid could be one of them.
The giveaway is here:
I'm a huge fan of The Bragging Mommy blog reviews and giveaways, and I'm especially a fan of this one. This week, there is a giveaway for The First Years Compass B570 Pathway Booster Car seat. It's good for children between 30 and 100 pounds or 3-10 years old. How awesome is that!? Some other features of this car seat that I LOVE are removable dishwasher safe cup holders, an easy one fold system so it's easy to move, and an anchor system to keep it in place when your child isn't in it. With my current booster seat, every time my daughter climbs in and out, I have to adjust it. If she spills her drink in the cupholder, I have to soak up the spill, clean it out, then dry it off, and hope that I got it clean. And in my two door car, taking the car seat in and out to clean is almost more trouble than it's worth. The First Years Compass B570 Booster would be an incredible improvement than what we have now. And best of all, these are only a few of the features that makes this booster amazing. If you'd like to learn more about this car seat and enter for your chance to win it for your own child, visit:

Yay! Another chance to win one of the great Safety 1st Air Protect car seats I told you about in my last post! If you missed it, let me break it down for you. Safety 1st has designed a line of car seats and boosters that protect our children from side impact crashes, one of the leading causes of child fatalities. One in every three children that die from car accidents die from side impact wrecks. There is hardly any cushion or buffer to absorb the force of impact in side collisions, and Safety 1st is has provided that cushion with the Air Protect products. Air Protect car seats are equipped with air cushions in the head and neck areas. In the case of accidents, these cushions absorb some of the force of the impact and dispel it away from a child's head. Any product that increases the likelihood of survival in case of a car accident is a product worth having, in my opinion. If you'd like the chance to win one of these for your child, enter here:
Safety 1st is well known for innovative, cutting edge technology and design when it comes to children's safety seats, and now they've improved their products again with their Air Protect Revolutionary Side Impact Technology. Did you know that 1 in every 3 child fatalities from car crashes are due to side impact? I didn't know that, but it's not a statistic I'll be forgetting any time soon. As a parent, I worry about countless mishaps and accidents that my children can get into, so of course, car accidents are at the top of my list. Even following proper installation instructions and advice for my car seats and boosters, I'm not convinced that they'd make much of a difference if they were (Heaven forbid) ever put to the test. For the safety of my children and for my peace of mind, I would certainly trust Safety 1st. Their products can be a little pricey (worth every penny, wouldn't you say?), so the wonderful mama of My Silly Monkeys is bringing you the chance to win a Safety 1st Air Protect booster seat of your own. Visit http://airprotect.safety1st.com/ to learn more about Air Protect technology, then head over to www.mysillymonkeys.com/2010/11/holiday-gift-idea-safety-1st-air.html to enter the giveaway.

We all know and love Melissa and Doug products in our house, and now we have the chance to win yet another amazing product. On the Melissa and Doug blog right now is a giveaway for a Deluxe Puppet Theater and the winner's choice of 3 accompanying puppets. Our oldest daughter is 4 and currently quite the storyteller. And luckily, her younger sister adores her and loves sitting and listening to whatever she has to say. If your kids are anything like mine, this theater could keep them occupied for HOURS. Okay, maybe not hours, but at least a good chunk of time. And this type of interactive play is great for kids. I really hope to win this giveaway, but if not me, I'd love for it to be you! Good luck! This giveaway ends at midnight on 11/18. Enter before it's too late!

When I was expecting my youngest daughter, my family of 3 lived in a two bedroom, 1 and a half bathroom townhouse that fit us well, but thinking of the impending addition made us feel cramped. Perhaps it was because there was less room for my growing family or maybe my huge belly made me feel squeezed on all sides, but our just-big-enough for us house soon felt microscopic. When our little one was born, baby gear covered every left over inch of our home. Soon we were tripping over bouncers, falling over swings, and stepping on the ever errant baby toy. Buying smaller things for the baby or items that could be stored easily is now my mission. Cue the Zooper To-Go high chair. This high chair folds flat, weighs a mere 14.5 pounds, fits a baby up to 45 pounds, and is convenient for travel. In other words, it's perfect for a square foot challenged mom, such as myself. And now I have a chance to win one of my very own and so do you. Simply go to http://www.poshlittle.com/baby/posh-little-baby-a-mommy-blog/the-to-go-high-chair-you-can-take-it-with-you-win-it.html for your chance to win.
