As a community of moms, SmartMom feels a responsibility to provide resources that can change a family’s life. In honor of SIDS Awareness Month this October, we have partnered with Finnbin, a baby box company, to launch a brand new online resource Safe Sleep School.
Safe Sleep School features online video “courses” raising awareness for the prevention of SIDS, as well as other topics that concern family wellness like car seat safety and nutrition for nursing mothers. The site includes an online quiz parents can take after viewing the online video courses to showcase an understanding of the information on how to help keep babies safe. Continue reading

Come join Monica Royer from children’s clothing company Monica + Andy in an exclusive live chat in the SmartMom app Wednesday, September 20th.
Monica will lead a discussion about raising our daughters to be strong, independent, self-confident women. As a mother of a 6 year old daughter, Monica leads by example not only for her young one but tries to emulate this feeling of empowerment through her clothing line.
Besides mom’s arms, where is baby’s favorite place to sleep? A safe, snug and cozy swaddle. We know there are plenty of swaddles on the market these days, so SmartMom is bringing you the one backed by science: The Ollie Swaddle.
For SmartMom’s September Contest:
Three SmartMoms will win an Ollie Swaddle from The Ollie World!
In 2017, SmartMom launched the Real Life SmartMom series featuring your favorite Mommy Bloggers, experts and influencers. We go to these women for advice, recipes, support and whenever Google comes up with an answer we don’t like. Let’s get to know these amazing mommas a bit better – why? Because they are SmartMoms; and smart moms talk to SmartMoms.
This week we hear from Maura Winkler who is the owner of Chicago Birth and Baby, a company dedicated to supporting women through the entire process of motherhood. Maura has also personally helped hundreds of women as a registered nurse, midwife, and certified birth & postpartum doula.
SmartMom is featuring Maura in a live discussion Wednesday, 8/16 at 10am CT as part of Postpartum Depression Awareness with SmartMom. Join the discussion by logging in and clicking the post at the top of the feed.
Here are some questions we asked –
SmartMom was created as an exclusive question and answer forum for mothers to ask any question and get answers in real time from peers. In the last three years, SmartMom has become so much more.
SmartMom is a place to celebrate big milestones and small wins, a place to vent frustrations and blow off steam, and a place where we find inner strength and the energy it takes to “mom so hard.”

For the July monthly contest, we switched things up: instead of announcing winners at the end of the month, we have instant giveaway winners weekly during July!
3 SmartMoms will each win 2 sports bras from POWWFUL!
POWWFUL is an active lifestyle brand that believes in empowering women with fun styles and bold colors. As a mother, we’ve all had those days when we don’t have time to focus on ourselves. This often leads to messy buns, sweat pants, and an overall feeling of not being put-together. With POWWFUL, we know our value. Throw on one of their hot colored sport bras, tanks, or cover-ups and you’ll feel brighter throughout your day knowing you have something cute on – even if others can’t see it.
Going to the grocery store can be a mom’s worst nightmare. Your 30lb car seat takes up half the cart so you can’t get nearly as many items as you need, while lugging around the car seat plus groceries is virtually impossible. Getting out of the house with a baby is hard enough!
Binxy Baby is here to help. Leave that heavy car seat where it belongs and unwrap Binxy Baby’s Shopping Cart Hammock! Your little one can literally hang out while you shop and your shopping cart can fill up with much needed goodies. And no need to worry – this mom hack meets all applicable safety standards.
For our June Contest, three SmartMoms will be rewarded with a Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock!
We chat in the app daily. We ask each other some of our most embarrassing questions. We log in at 4am. But do we really know you that well?
