Time for another giveaway! (Think Kokopax)

Remember our last giveaway? And how thrilled our winner was with the Belle Baby Carrier she won?

Well, we had so much fun then that we’ve decided to do another giveaway before the summer ends. Lucky for you, right? This time, we’re giving away a Kokopax eco-classic baby carrier to one lucky winner. And this time, you get to choose which eco-classic carrier you get!

The Kokopax eco-classic carrier has great padding to keep your baby comfortable, and you will love all the support this carrier offers. Unlike other carriers, this one has a firm frame to give added support. This is also a great carrier to use with your growing baby—even when he gets a little bigger, you can still use this carrier. Unlike a wrap or smaller carrier that is only convenient when you child is smaller, the Kokopax eco-classic carrier can be used for children from 6 months to two years, or up to 35 pounds.

The Kokopax eco-classic carrier is also convenient to use, with a simple buckle system and comfortable design. It’s sturdy enough to be used on a hike or while camping, but it’s also trendy and compact enough to make a trip to the mall or grocery store simpler. And with different styles to choose from, you’re sure to find one that fits you (and your baby’s!) style.

Head on over to Babes and Kids Review to enter. Tiffany at Babes and Kids has done a great review of her Kokopax baby carrier and has offered several ways to enter.

Giveaway Winner Update

Carissa won our Belle Baby Carrier last month, and she’s had plenty of chances to try it out with her little ones. It looks like the baby carrier is a hit! Here’s what she had to say:

(Remember you can still get 10 percent off the Belle Baby Carrier and other products until the end of the month with the code 10off511)

This picture is from my brother's graduation. I needed to haul both my kids into the building and then hike back to the car, but there was nowhere to store a stroller once I was in the building, so my baby carrier was perfect.

Where to begin…I LOVE this baby carrier!

My bruised legs are a thing of the past! The Belle Baby Carrier is about a million steps up from baby’s car seat and better than any other baby carrier I’ve used.

I have owned a baby wrap in the past, but it took a really long time to get my baby in and out. Her weight wasn’t distributed evenly which gave me a lot of back pain, so I never used it.  This baby carrier is completely different! Every piece that touches your body and your baby is very well padded and soft. It has mesh fabric to keep you and baby cool and the criss-cross straps relieve pressure on your back and shoulders. It reminds me a lot of how my baby’s weight is distributed when I’m pregnant, especially when she is facing me.

She has fallen asleep several times in this carrier and the extra attachment for head support is great for keeping her comfortable. It’s awesome for a sick, whiney baby and I think it would be a lifesaver for a mom with a colicky, fussy newborn.

It’s really easy to put on after the first time of adjusting the straps; I’m down to about 20 seconds. And the most important part, my little girl loves the Belle Baby Carrier! Whenever she sees me put in on she squeals! She loves having a bird’s eye view of the world and kicks her legs and laughs almost the whole time–so I think it must be pretty comfortable for her!

It frees up my hands to chase around my toddler and I don’t have to worry about my baby tipping when I bend over or lean to the side; she is completely secure.  My toddler loves that she gets to walk instead of ride in the stroller.

Some of my favorite places to take the Belle Baby Carrier are the park, church, and short trips to the store.  It’s great for those stores that have narrow aisles. Next time I fly I will definitely use my carrier instead of dealing with the stroller hassle. It’s perfect for me because I have two kids and need an extra hand, but I think moms of one will still put some serious miles on it because it’s so convenient and comfy.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about it.  Out of all the baby gadgets; jumpers, walkers, strollers, high chairs, swings, this is probably my very favorite.  In my baby’s mind, it’s probably second only to her binky!

Thanks again!
Carissa

And … We Have a Winner!

It’s been a busy day around here, but I’m really excited to announce the giveaway winner! There were so many great responses. It was awesome to read about all you great moms who do so many fun things with your babies! And even if you didn’t win this time, you can still get a discount on Belle Baby Carriers and other products throughout the month by using the coupon code listed in our newsletter (subscribe using the form on the right of this page).

So without further ado, the random number generator has spoken. And the winner is comment number 19 …

Carissa who said, “Boy do I need one of these! I’ve got a 20 month old and a 7 month old (that’s right–13 months). My husband is deployed to Iraq and getting to and from church is a disaster. The little one is too heavy for her carseat so I come home each week with black, blue, and purple shins from it banging against my legs while I help the older one walk/carry her to nursery. Don’t get me started on Walmart trips and other excursions! :) I would LOVE to be able to put the baby in a carrier and not have to worry about her falling out or tipping while I chase around big sister, and I even might show my non-bruised white legs off in shorts this summer!”

Congratulations, Carissa! It sounds like you will put the baby carrier to great use. 🙂 Look for an e-mail from us requesting your shipping information.

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Look for more giveaways in the future!

Giveaway: Belle Baby Carrier

Happy April! Hopefully, summer is well on its way wherever you are. Spring has been teasing us around here, but we’re hoping the snow will melt (yes, snow…) and the warm weather will come to stay!

In honor of this yearly miracle, we’re hosting our first giveaway. Hooray!

This month, we’re giving away an awesome Belle Baby Carrier. We love these carriers because they grow with your baby—when she is just a few months old, you can keep her warm, wrapped up and close to your heartbeat, just like she was in the womb. But as she grows, you can turn her around and let her see what you can see. The Belle Baby Carrier also has:

• Head support that is detachable so it grows with your baby.

• An easy-to-use buckle system that is both secure and comfortable for your baby.

• A design that allows direct contact between mom and baby for comforting closeness.

And there are LOTS of ways to enter. Each of these will get you one entry.

  1. Leave a comment telling us what you will do with the Belle Baby Carrier.
  2. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter by e-mailing newsletter@aroundmybaby.com, then comment and tell us you did.
  3. Blog about our giveaway with a link back to our site, then leave a comment with a link to your post.
  4. Share the giveaway on Facebook, then leave a comment letting us know you shared the love.

There you have it—four possible entries! We will choose a winner on April 28, but even if you don’t win, we’ll still have a little something for those who subscribed to the newsletter. Stay tuned.

OK. Ready, set, go!
