Christmas Gift Guide - Baby Gear + 4moms bounceRoo Giveaway!!


Maybe it was because I had a late fall/winter baby, but I feel like Christmas is always such a good time to stock up on some baby gear.  We all know how expensive it can get.  We had Leighton on October 22, so come Christmas, we knew exactly what we needed and what we didn't (and then we just crossed our fingers that Leighton would like them all!)  You know how picky babies can be sometimes. 

With all the great Christmas sales going on right now, it's the perfect time to buy those baby gear items for yourself or a friend or family member.  Believe me, they'll thank you.  I've rounded up some of my favorite items from car seats to bouncers to diaper bags.  And I also have a special treat for one lucky reader today.  4moms is one of my favorite brands for baby gear.  We had a couple of their bouncers and even their high chair, and the bounceRoo is one of their newest bouncers that will be such a lifesaver.  I'm so excited to be teaming up with 4moms to give away a bounceRoo today.  To enter just use the widget below and good luck!  What was your favorite baby item you couldn't live without?

This giveaway is a part of the 12 Days of Giveaways.  Twelve bloggers, twelve days, twelve amazing prizes! Be sure to check the calendar below, and to visit each site to enter on their giveaway day.  All giveaways will be open until the 18th......so lucky you, you can enter them ALL!

rush said...

My favorite baby item was a reclining seat. It helped with feeding and keeping my daughter up so she could see what was around her. We would "talk" to each other while keeping my hands and arms free. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Francis said...

My sister bought me a glider and it was the best for nursing.

Abbie said...

Love my BOB jogging stroller.

Mindy said...

I would choose the nice warm snuggle. That comes in handy in the middle of the night, I had 2 kids born in the winter months.

The MamaRoo was by far my favorite baby gear gift! And now that I am expecting twins, I'd love to add another or a bounceroo to my collection.

Nicole Kleckner said...

Where did I even begin?! These giveaways are such huge staple items for any mom! I'll be a first time mommy soon so to own any of this would be so incredibly helpful!!
However, I've been a nanny for years so one thing I couldn't live without is the quinny moodd stroller! It's a lifesaver when you need to get out!

Lacey Giffin said...

My favorite baby item is a bouncer. My son had horrible reflux when he was an infant and it was the only thing that helped. We're now expecting a little girl in March!

Rebecca G

Gabriela Anderson said...

My favorite is my nursing cover/car seat cover

Christy Hermogenes said...

I'm going to say I think a wrap is very essential for Mom to get anything done around the house because a newborn baby requires a lot of attention and truly just wants to be held. So the wrap makes it just a bit easier. For some reason with my second baby I don't hardly have anything, no glider, no swing, no pack n play, no bouncer. His birth kind of crept up on us very very fast. Heck he was even born within an hour of getting to hospital, no time for pain meds! So basically my procrastination did not pay off all around!

Anonymous said...

Our dockatot has to be my favorite. It's been a lifesaver, especially if you travel!

Shannon F said...
