January SmartMom Contest – Win $100 in Dapple Baby Products

Dapple Baby Products - SmartMom

During the first 12 months of your baby’s life, there are bound to be a few messes. Scratch that – there are bound to be a TON of messes. During these first months you’re likely to scrap the chemicals in favor of more natural cleaning products that are safer for baby.  And while it’s easy to love the idea of natural cleaning products, so often they fall short of being effective.

Dapple Baby products are the best of both worlds. They’re made with naturally-based ingredients that are environmentally safe and biodegradable.  But they’re also specifically designed to tackle even the toughest crusty, drippy, and sticky messes. We love Dapple products and we think you’ll love them too! That’s why we’re partnering with Dapple to give 5 lucky moms the complete line of dapple products. Continue reading

This November: Win a Swaddling Blanket from Embé!

As the weather gets crispier, you’re probably looking for more ways to keep your baby (and yourself!) warm and cozy. I don’t know about you, but I pretty much have a cup of tea in my hands from November until about March or April. I mean, half the time it’s not even tea – just a mug of hot water to keep my hands warm.

This November we want to send coziness your way with a soft, snuggly swaddling blanket from embé! This month 10 (that’s right, ten!) moms from the SmartMom community will win a patented Embé® 2-in-1 Swaddle — a convertible swaddle that allows for baby’s legs to remain either in or out of the swaddle, helping to reduce the risk of overheating.

The 2-in-1 design also allows for quick and easy night-time diaper changes by keeping baby’s hands away from the diaper and allowing for easy access. These swaddles are made with 100% Peruvian Pima cotton — a rare cotton often referred to as “the cashmere of cottons.” Check out the Embé site to learn more!
