Day 5: Christmas Blogging Challenge

When your sick, it's really hard to keep up with this on top of everything else on my blog, and with our family. Hailey, my five month old baby girl, is now sick and coughing. She is really congested and she wouldn't nap at all yesterday. I really needed to put her down, but every time I put her down, she's wake herself up coughing or choking on mucus.


This cold/flu whatever the heck it is needs to go away now. Everyone is still coughing and congested. My son Matthew has had this now for 11 days, Chloe for 9 days, Me for 6 days, and my husband for about 6 days also. Now Hailey is just starting...  She will be sick for the rest of the month with this. All I want (Need) is ONE good night of solid sleep without anyone waking me up. I don't feel it's much to ask for, but it looks like it's going to be a while. I guess it's time to start taking naps with Hailey laying on me in the recliner, IF Chloe will let me sleep and not wake me up. Oh, so tired. So if the low entry giveaway post doesn't get done, you'll know why. Because I didn't get a chance to do it.

Perrigo Nutritionals Infant Formula Prize Pack Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/13

With a bundle of joy who you always want the best for, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed as you strive to make smart purchasing decisions. When it comes to feeding your little one, while breastfeeding is the gold standard, as many as 80% of moms supplement with infant formula at some point during the baby’s first year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). 

Many moms are not aware that they can save up to 50% on infant formula, by choosing a store brand over a national brand. In case you are not familiar with store brand infant formula, it is sold under individual retailer brands, such as Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up & Up.  They are as nutritionally complete as the national brands, yet are typically half the price of the national brands, and can save you about $600 a year.  Perrigo Nutritionals is the largest supplier of store brand infant formula and nutrition products in the world and one of only four companies recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for meeting the strict FDA requirements for safety, nutrition, and quality for infant formula-manufacturing in the United States. 

Armed with advice on what new parents can spend less on without compromising on quality is Sandra Gordon, one of the nation’s leading baby products experts. Sandra has just released a new book, Save a Bundle: 50+ Ways to Save Big on Baby Gear, where she shares her top money-saving tips for new parents, including her advice on safe products, like store brand infant formula, that parents can buy for their baby without compromising nutrition or spending a bundle.

Enter for a chance to Win a Perrigo Nutritionals Prize Pack, which includes:

  • One can of Parent’s Choice Premium (nutritionally equivalent to Enfamil Premium® )
  • One can of Up & Up Advantage (nutritionally equivalent to Similac® Advance®)
  • One copy of Save a Bundle: 50+ Ways to Save Big on Baby Gear
  • Munchkin Baby bottle drying rack
  • Formula dispenser
  • Munchkin Bottle brush

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Now that you've entered, go try your luck with the Free Baby Formula sweepstakes at You have the chance to win a new Origami® Stroller by 4moms, the world’s first power-folding, self-charging stroller, or a weekly prize of two cases of baby formula. The Origami® Stroller comes with four cup holders, daytime running lights, and pathway lights that turn on in low-light conditions. It even comes equipped with an LCD display dashboard, featuring a thermometer, speedometer, and lifetime odometer.

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: SnuggyBaby Baby Doll Sling Review, Discount Code, and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/12

I have many mom friends who like babywearing their babies in slings, carriers, ring slings, wraps, etc. When I was looking for a ring sling for myself, I came across SnuggyBaby. SnuggyBaby ring slings are fashionable and stylish. You can purchase a matching sling for your daughter or son to carry their baby dolls around in! I thought this was a silly idea until my daughter started asking me if she could have one like mine to carry her babies around in too. I didn't think she would actually do it, let alone, wear her babies in her sling out in public. But she does! She does it proudly! 

Since Chloe has been wearing her baby dolls like I wear her baby sister, I have been so proud of her for being a great little mommy and taking care of her babies. I also know that I am teaching her the importance of keeping her babies close, and teaching her how to bond.

SnuggyBaby also sells Baby Wraps, Mei Tai's, Wet Bags, and of course, Children's Doll Slings! If you have a little girl, granddaughter, or niece in your life who loves her baby dolls and loves to do everything just like her mommy, then one of SnuggyBaby's Child Doll Slings would make a great Christmas gift to go along with that darling baby doll you just got her!

Use discount code AIRPLANES to receive 10% off your total order!

SnuggyBaby is also giving away a $15.00 gift code to one of my readers! You can put this towards any Child's Doll Sling or towards purchasing one of their other products. Enter using the Rafflecopter Form below.

Day 2 - Christmas Blogging Challenge

So I missed a day of blogging yesterday, kind of. I am sick. Everyone in our house has some form of nasty cold. Of course my husband can't breathe, so he was snoring most of the night. Baby girl woke up 3 times to nurse last night. She is finally down for her first nap. Even she is coughing and not feeling well. All she wants is for me to hold her, so that means putting blog work on hold and my daily posts on hold. I will try to get them out, but the low entry giveaway lists might not be as long.

I hope that you are all having a nice weekend.
