It's A Giveaway, Baby!

We're teaming up with CSN to give one of our readers a $60 gift certificate. You can use it on any of their websites, but we are going to show you some of the goodies found specifically on CSN Baby because we're going baby crazy this week!

To Enter:

1. We've JUST added the follower function to our blog, so please add yourself as a follower.
2. Leave us a comment telling us your favorite baby names right now. I think this will be fun, because I happen to know there are a bunch of pregnant ladies out there currently!
(Also, leave your email address or make sure your name is linked to your own blog so we can contact you if you win)
3. Optional, if you blog or tweet about our giveaway, come back and enter again!

We will be picking the winner randomly on Monday, May 31st at 9pm EST.

Now on to some of my favorite baby items available at CSN Baby. I'm only adding things that I think are really useful, because you tend to go overboard as a new mom buying EVERYTHING, and really not everything is necessary.

My must-haves...

A diaper bag is key. You need lots of space, those little bundles require LOTS OF STUFF. Here are three dot options from three price points. Starting at the top and most expensive is Dwell, then SkipHop, and lastly Carter's.

I really like a mobile, and so does my daughter. She still spends lots of time staring at her birds. I'm a little picky about these, however, and only like the ones that hang from the ceiling on thin wire. I love how they move so beautifully and here are some cute options...

The hooded towel is a good idea. All babies are wiggly, and these help to keep them warm and cozy after a bath. Plus, what baby does look darling wearing a hood?! I love these Dwell patterns...

Lastly, all kiddos need toys. I really look out for non-toxic wood toys, and love these options. My daughter loves her clacking pull toy, shape sorter and is quite the musician with her xylophone...

I better hurry. Speaking of babies, mine just woke up and is demanding rather loudly that I rescue her asap! More baby design coming this week!


  1. I'm a new follower.

    Of course I love my children's names the most, but I'll suggest a few that I like as well (I don't want my kids' names suddenly becoming popular...teehee!). For a boy I like Noah and for a girl Lila.

  2. I follow.

    I like the names Asher and Lucy.

  3. I am a follower and I like the names Kristjan
    and Sophia.

  4. I'm a follower. I love the name Daisy for a girl. Anyone I suggest it to seems to hate it but I would have used it if I had a girl. Chance is my favorite boy name (and happens to be my son's name).
