Frogmama Giveaway – CLOSED
WE HAVE A WINNER! Comment #82 – Samone Bayles. THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE GIVEAWAY!
I’m so excited to bring you all an AWESOME giveaway from Frogmama! I was blessed to find Frogmama just about a year ago. I was desperate for a baby carrier for my 6 week old. He got to that stage where babies decide it’s much more interesting to be awake than asleep even though they’re incredibly tired. Oh-so-fun. I needed a solution ASAP. Frogmama was recommended over and over.
I made my way over there and found a FANTASTIC deal on a Beco Butterfly II (sold as a second but in perfect condition). I tried numerous baby carriers with big E and never found one that worked well for us. The Beco was perfect. Still is, as I happily carry Preston around in it when he’s fussier than normal and I really need to get stuff done (like make dinner). It’s also worked great for trips to the zoo. I LOVE to have two hands free (so I can wrangle the preschooler) and still hold my baby.
Sometime last spring I also found a love for Ring Slings. I have a linen ring sling that works well for me because it slips on and off so easily, is light-weight and breathable. I get hot very easily (and sweaty – ick, I know). The Ring Sling was my sanity-saver while we were in Disney World a few weeks ago.
I was surprised that I only saw two or three other parents wearing their children the whole time we were there. It was the perfect solution for us and I felt so lucky that I had it with me every time I passed a mom or dad carrying a sleeping child (which was WAY more than I ever expected).
So now I get to share the Babywearing LOVE with you! If you’re unfamiliar with babywearing there are a few sites you should check out. Some moms (and dads) babywear nearly full-time, whether at home or not. I choose to babywear when we’re out and about – not always, but it is often the most convenient option for me. It’s the perfect solution when we’re shopping at Target or a grocery store. I pop big E in the cart and carry little P. Everyone’s happy. Ok, big E’s not terribly happy, because, really, he’d rather be out of the cart. But that’s not going to happen for a long time because I’m not a huge fan of playing chase with a 3-year-old in public. I digress.
If you need help choosing the carrier that’s right for you, Lorene (the fabulous WAHM behind Frogmama) would be happy to help. This is directly from her site:
I have tried out all these types of carriers myself with my children and am happy to try to help you find one that will work out for you in the long haul. One of the most common questions I get is “which carrier is the best?” I have heard of someone else answering this question by asking “well which shoes are the best?” There are obviously lots of variables to take into account. Your size, your babies age, what you plan to use it for, quick trips or long hikes, what fabrics you like, will you want to breastfeed in it and more. Most carriers I sell will work well for most people. I will also be glad to help you try to find a good fit, but like a good shoe many times you just need to try it out and break it in to get it to work well for you. Click here to email me now.
So, are you wondering why in the world a website selling baby carriers is called Frogmama? I was too. Here’s the answer: “Frogmama came to be from an acronym for F.R.O.G that I came across years ago. It stands for Fully Rely On God. In my life I continually realize that God is faithful to provide if I just rely on Him.” Isn’t that awesome?!
And are you wondering what you could win from Frogmama and pureMotherhood?! Wait no more. We are giving away any one baby carrier up to $100 in value from Frogmama or you can choose a $100 gift certificate good toward any one baby carrier in the Frogmama store!
