Rockin' Baby Sling Give Away!

This week I have a new article over at the Baby Buzz Blog. It is all about my experiences nursing. If you are a new mom or a soon to be mom you might find my insights helpful. And, if you are a veteran mom you might like to read this light-hearted article about a new mom getting used to the "art of nursing." I hope you'll stop by and leave me a comment!

If you missed last week's article it was all about traveling with a baby. If you are planning a trip with your new addition this is a must read! We recently went on two trips with Judah, my now three month old. One was a LONG car trip (across the United States from Georgia to Lake Eerie) and the other was a plane trip.

I couldn't have made the trip without my Rockin' Baby sling! It was a life saver! And, I am so excited that I get to give one to one of my awesome readers!

The Rockin' Baby Sling that I have is the baby pouch style. I never knew how much I would love this thing! It came in the mail just a couple of days before we made our trip to Miami, Florida for the Word of Mouth Marketing (Womm) conference. The pouch made it so much easier to get through the airport and I loved that he was tucked safely inside from well-wishers and thier germy airport hands. (Need I remind you that this was the same time as the swine-flu hysteria). I was able to tuck him inside and use both of my hands to push the stroller with my carry on bags stowed in the stroller.

What I didn't know was how much I would love it once I got home. I practically use it every time we leave the house. First, when we go to the grocery store or CVS I take Judah out of his car seat and tuck him inside the pouch. Even when he is wide awake at first, Judah always falls asleep in the pouch because it is so snuggly. That is great for me because I can whip through the store without him fussing and get right out. Plus, it is better than keeping him in the carseat in the grocery cart because the carseat takes up room in the cart and again people are more likely to touch him (I know, I know, I am obsessed with strange people touching my child).

The biggest question I get about the sling/pouch is if it is awkward or heavy and uncomfortable. It really isn't. If you have it adjusted right it is a lot easier than carrying him and you have both of your hands free to do whatever. It actually distributes the weight a little better too. And, Judah loves it too. I think it is because he is right up against me and can hear my heart beat - kind of like when he was in the womb. It comforts him too! When he is fussy you can put him in the sling and he'll be off to dream land.

Okay so on to the give away!
