ONE MONTH + A GIVEAWAY! closed

Our little Phoebe turns a month old on Monday. It is surreal. I've been wading in dirty clothes and baby kisses and coloring books with Til in a sleepless haze. It feels like a huge accomplishment. Had it not been for some extra hands and my amazing husband, not sure I would have fared so well. This month has been a real adventure and I've learned just how much my heart is capable of loving my little ones. They are incredible. Matilda loves Phoebe to pieces. She talks to her in the highest pitched voice imaginable and always wants to kiss her head and to hold her while I read to them. Gush. Just more cuteness than I can handle sometimes. This month has also been a bit overwhelming, days where we don't get out of our pajamas, not without tears. It's been a true test of endurance.
We are slowly but surely finding our new rhythm. We went out to dinner for the first time as a family of four, we're keeping the house a little cleaner, and we're feeling a bit less over our heads. As far as Phoebe goes, she is the sweetest baby. As long as I feed her and give her plenty of snuggles she is a happy camper. The only thing she really hates is... the car. We drove Matilda through the Lights at Life and she screamed the entire time. Ha! Poor Til.
When I was pregnant and putting together a wish list for Phoebe, at the very top was an Ergobaby carrier. So many people had sung its praises and I really wanted a carrier with some longevity, that was comfortable, and that Sam would also enjoy.
There are so many details about the Ergobaby that I really love, the sleeping hood being one of my favorites. Simply pull the hood up and over baby and they have a cozy, shaded spot to sleep. I also love the large front pocket - perfect for keys and my phone. The most wonderful feature of course is how comfortable it is. The padded straps are amazing and it's super easy to get on and off. The carrier comes ready to wear, no confusing wrapping or buckling.
Phoebe loves being in the Ergo. Here she is nestled in the infant insert happily dozing away. The carrier works with infants 7-12 lbs (with insert) all the way up to 40 lbs. I also think it's great that there are three carrying positions: front, back, and hip. The carrier works on most adult body types and heights. Sam and I have both worn the classic carrier and he loves wearing it while he's working in the leather shop. It's really adorable. Nothing sexier than a baby wearin' man working on some leather.
I am so, so excited to be teaming up with Ergobaby to give away this Bamboo forest carrier (infant insert not included). A $120 value. I guarantee that the lucky winner will love it. The pistachio green color is really lovely in person and I dig the embroidery details and printed hood.

Here's how to enter:
open to us residents only - deadline is 12/21 midnight eastern
the winner is cassandra eastman!

    4. I would love the ergo baby because I am about to have my first baby and I am an active person and have heard that the ergo is one of the only ones that is so simple and fast to put on and you dont need any other assistance. I just know I will love it and use it everyday!!

      ReplyDelete
    5. My second is due in may, and I predict a lot of baby wearing! Hope I win!!

    6. My husband and I are expecting our first baby at the end of January - I love exercising and would love to get the Ergo as it would enable me to, at least, easily walk a lot with our new little one!

    20. Ok, I've been seriously regretting not registering for the ergo. I like the moby, but the bjorn doesn't work for my boobs! So I think the softer carrier would work.

    27. Hi Lesley- I found your blog through my friend Ginny Branch. I live in Atlanta too and just had my first baby on Nov 28. A little girl (the gender was a surprise we saved for delivery!) named Lillian. I've really enjoyed reading your blog and knowing that I'm not alone in how hard the newborn phase is. I've heard nothing but great things about this carrier. I'd love to win so that my husband and I can comfortably wear Lillian when we are out or even just around the house. With the cost of diapers etc buying one isn't in the cards for us right now.

    32. I would love to win an Ergobaby carrier! We just found out we're expecting, and I have been doing lots of research as to which strollers, carriers, etc are the best. Ergobaby tops the list, and I'd love one (= Plus, winning it makes one less item on the daunting list of baby things to buy or register for and hope we get!

      ReplyDelete
    33. P.S.--I liked you on Facebook! I'd like ergobaby as well, but my friends and coworkers still don't know about our little "peanut," and I don't want anyone to be suspicious (=

    47. Lesley-
      I found your blog about half way through my pregnancy, and have thoroughly enjoyed following your journey. I have found such inspiration by reading your posts.

      I would LOVE to wine this carrier, my son was born on Nov. 23rd and loves to be close to me ALL the time. He does not like to be set down for even a moment! I also have a toddler (2 Yrs.) so having a way to have my hands free while taking care of him would be so AWESOME! I'm a stay at home mom, so, I appreciate any good accessory that allows be to do more.

      Thank you for sharing this opportunity :)

      Happy holidays!

    56. Baby #2 is due in march for us- second boy! I didn't have an ergo with my first son- we had the baby bjorn and I hated it! We also tried the moby wrap which always took me too long to figure out. With baby 2 coming and an almost 3 year old I need something easy and on the go and something that looks stylish!! I am excited to get the ergo for this next little guy and hope it will help me wrangle two kids at a time!! I'm hoping I can win this through your website- just one less thing to worry about as a full time working mom, 6 months preggers with a toddler! I already liked your website and have it bookmarked and will like ergo on Facebook too. Keep me in mind when choosing your winner!!

      Congrats in phoebe!!

    69. I have an ergo and love it. This is not for me. I'm a teacher and one of my friends at work is having her 4th child, all which are boys. They range in ages from the oldest being 13 to the youngest being 7. This is a wonderful miraicle for them. They just went through some really terrible things with her family in Mexico. I would love to do something great for her like winning this ergo. I know she would love it as much as I have loved mine.

      ReplyDelete
    70. I would love to win the ergo carrier as Ive heard it is a great baby carrier! I am 23.5 weeks pregnant with our first child. We had a rough fertility journey and after figuring out the issue preventing conception we quickly conceived twins only to miscarry them both at 7 weeks. Thankfully we conceived our baby girl a few months later and we can't wait to meet her and be her parents! I subscribed a few months ago and have enjoyed reading about your pregnancy and now mommy of 2 journey!

    71. Hi Lesley!! We are expecting our first child on Feb 28th, a little girl!! We are soo very excited. I am rather short at 5'2" and I've heard that the Ergo baby carrier fits smaller women well. I would LOVE to have this for our little one. I've been doing yoga and fusion classes, trying to prepare for her arrival. This would definitely help me carry her a little easier; maybe it would help save my back a bit too. Thank you for your blog, I love reading your adventures in parenting.

    76. Hello, I love the Ergobaby carrier & used my Babybjorn with my son but it was handed down & almost too firm. I firmly believe in sharing baby items but this time I'd like to have a new & more ergonomic carrier.
