Organic Start Giveaway + Coupon Codes!

It’s been two whole years since I last collaborated with Organic Start on a giveaway. That’s far too long when it comes to working with one of my favorite vendors of organic formula from Europe! (You can read about my review and vetting process here.)

Today, I am happy to announce that Organic Start is generously giving away 3 boxes of the formula of your choice (up to $100 value!)

In conjunction with the giveaway, I want to take this opportunity to also announce that – exclusive to Mommy to Max readers only – Organic Start is offering the following coupon codes:

Organic Start – use coupon code MTM10 for 10% off your order – new customers only! If you need smaller quantities or your formula ASAP.

Organic Start Wholesale – use coupon code MTM5 for 5% off your order. Provides the same great service and products but at bulk prices.

  • 2-minute mini documentary edited to royalty-free music
  • A 15-minute initial phone consultation
  • A 30-minute virtual meeting prior to your filming session
  • Preparation tips sent prior to your filming session

Jaq Jaq Bird – Doodle it Chalk Book Review

On the weekends, we frequently dine out with the kids. Recently, Max started asking us if we are going to a “grownup restaurant.” (Which basically means, a restaurant that doesn’t provide free crayons.) If so, he asks if we can bring crayons and a coloring book for him to draw in.

And, because I’m terrible at being prepared, when the time comes, I always forget to bring them.

This has happened enough times that when I saw Jaq Jaq Bird’s Doodle it Chalk Book, I realized that this was the PERFECT solution to my problems. Thank you to Jaq Jaq Bird for sending us two for review!

Basically, the Doodle it is a portable chalk book with eight 8 in x 8 in “chalkboard” pages. There’s several cute design covers to choose from with a velcro strap to keep the book secure when not in use. There’s also a little pocket attached to the last page to store their included 4-piece ButterStix. (Butterstix is their own formulation for dust-free, creamy chalk writing.)


PLAE Shoes Giveaway

I enjoy running giveaways as a way to thank my readers, both new and old. Oftentimes, I host giveaways sponsored by the companies I collaborate with. But, other times, I like to sponsor my own just so I can share some of my favorite products with my readers.

PLAE shoes is definitely one of those items. Many sneakers later, my family’s love for PLAE shoes is still going strong!

You can also check out my review to get $20.00 off your first pair, combined with a 10% discount.

Today, I am giving away a pair of PLAE shoes to THREE lucky readers!

The giveaway will run until March 23, 2018, 11:59PM EST.

A few things to note:

  1. There is a “free” entry option for ALL of my giveaways for those of you that hate signing up for something just to enter a giveaway.
  2. If you are already an e-mail subscriber or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter, you can submit your information and it will count as an entry.
  3. I check the winning entry. Please don’t waste my time (or yours) by submitting entries without performing the requested action. (This happens much more often than you think.)
  4. I will e-mail the winner and publish the winner’s name on this post, within 24 hours. If I do not receive a response within 48 hours, I will redraw. The winner will be able to select from any in-stock children’s shoe.

Good luck!

2018 New York Baby Show – Ticket Giveaway!

The 2018 New York Baby Show, on May 19-20 from 10:00AM-4:00PM at Pier 94, is the largest baby show for new and expectant parents in the country. It is now in its eighth year, featuring top baby and maternity brands, innovative products, great speakers and seminars, and giveaways.

This will be my third time attending and, as such, I have picked up a few tips and pointers to maximize your experience:

  1. Arrive early. Pier 94 is gigantic but it can still get pretty crowded. I like to go early so that I have more time to speak with the exhibitors.
  2. Print mailing labels that includes your e-mail address. Many exhibitors will have sign up sheets for freebies and/or giveaways. It can get annoying when you have to write down your contact information for the umpteenth time.
  3. Dress comfortably and bring water/snacks. You can easily spend a couple hours at the show if you end up speaking with exhibitors or attending the seminars. Much of that time will be spent walking around.
  4. Bring cash. While most of the vendors will take credit card, paying with cash can make the process quicker and easier.
  5. Go with another adult. You’re going to need/want someone to help you carry all the freebies and baby products that you buy. While it’s entirely possible to carry it all yourself, bring a helper if you can.
  6. Baby wear. If you are going with a baby, I suggest babywearing. Personally, I hate maneuvering through large crowds with a stroller. Popular exhibitors get swarmed and it can get difficult to push a stroller through the masses. (However, if you do use a stroller then see point #5 because you will want someone who can help watch the stroller when necessary.)

Free Ticket Giveaway

Today, I am giving away tickets so that you and your family can experience the show. Winning is easy – the first 10 readers to register here get free entrance.

50% Off Ticket

If you aren’t one of the first 10 readers, no worries, you can still purchase tickets here for 50% off.

Give me a shout-out if you plan on attending because I am definitely going again this year!
