GM Gave the Mommy Who Gave Birth in a Chevy Cobalt Free Diapers

I just heard that GM gave the mommy who gave birth in a Chevy Cobalt Free diapers for a year! It's been reported that she also got some free baby gear including car seats, a stroller and some other stuff. about winning free stuff the hard way!

HERE'S A MUCH BETTER WAY TO win some free cloth diapers.


Stephanie, over at My New Life As Mom is offering a much more user friendly way to score some cloth diapers that you are gonna love! The Fluffy Bottoms Cloth Diaper Event will be going on from June 1-30, 2010. You will not want to miss out on the month long cloth diaper event shedding some light on all the wonderful benefits of diapering your baby with cloth diapers. I'm going to be there to enjoy seeing the styles, price comparison and GIVEAWAYS as well as to hear the misconceptions of using cloth rather than disposables.

To get all the details and read the rules you will need to visit My New Life as a Mom!

Meanwhile back to the mommy who recently had her baby in the car...

Some might say that she made out like a bandit for giving birth behind the wheel of a car (is that what happened? Is that even physically possible?) but I'm here to tell you that there's no way that I would think that that was a good deal!

No amount of free diapers, free strollers or baby car seats would tempt me to jump in the family's Chevy fully dilated, my friends.

All that aside, this seems like a win-win situation for the GM motor company as well as the new mom. She gets freebies and they get a boatload of free promotion. Could all that free advertisement be the reason that GM gave the mommy who gave birth in a Chevy Cobalt free diapers? Can you see an ad sometime in the future saying something like "Check out our new Chevy will double as a delivery room in a pinch."?

Yeah, this has to be the worst way to win free baby diapers EVER and I'm just glad everything turned out OK for baby Joe and his mommy.

Here's a chance to win some free baby laundry detergent to use on your baby's clothes. The gift basket of free Dreft laundry detergent samples that you can win in this contest actually looks more like full size products to me but the blog giveaway page says they are samples.

Dreft is the baby laundry detergent of choice for many mothers and has a great reputation so I went out and bought a large supply of Dreft when I was expecting my first daughter. Then I found out the hard way that she was very, very allergic to it. What a waste of money that was! If only I had picked up some samples to try before I jumped in with both feet...sigh....

Well, you may be able to avoid my mistake by winning the giveaway contest prize of a Dreft New Mom Baby gift basket including a Dreft product of your choice (either power, liquid or high-efficiency for HE washers), a baby blanket and a cute teddy bear. You will need to visit here to fulfill the requirements to enter for a chance to win your free baby laundry detergent, baby blanket and toy!

Even the budget for baby showers are feeling the pinch these days so the chance to win free baby shower stuff should be very appealing to the hostess who finds herself being challenged with the task of planning a function with very little available funds.

I don't know about you but the first place that I look to cut corners is to make all of my own snacks and the only reason that I still use a bakery for the baby shower cupcakes is because I'm just not very artistic or handy with a frosting tube. Because of this, these edible icing sheets look like the answer to a prayer! All you have to do is bake the cakes add a layer of frosting and then put these decorations on top...SIMPLE AND EASY AS PIE!

So, buzz on over to Mommy's Sweet Things to enter the giveaway contest for a chance to win free baby shower stuff that you will probably fall in love with and never want to be without ever again because I believe this stuff is one of the best baby shower ideas ever and another cool thing is that there are lots of styles to choose from that will fit with most of the popular baby shower themes and colors!

I'm always looking for contests where I can win free Iphone accessories and this one popped up on the radar. To enter the giveaway you go to BABY DICKEY and leave a comment stating how you would put the prize to use.

Oh yeah...about the prize. The free Iphone accessory that you are trying to win is a little case that hold your iPhone, iPod Nano or iPod Touch in an upright position. If you think about how many times a day you have to pick up your phone to look at the screen you know that being able to use it hands-free more easily could be a really cool thing.

The IDOX would make watching videos, surfing the net, looking at photo slideshows or making speakerphone calls much, MUCH more convenient. I personally like the idea of using the clock app and the IDOX case to turn my phone into a travel alarm clock.

I'm looking forward to reading all the comments left by others so I'll have some ideas on how to use the accessory if I win. The last day to enter to win is June 8th 2010, at 11:59 pm CST. It's not every day that you find contests where you can win free Iphone accessories like this so hurry!


Enter the MOMMA IN FLIP FLOPS FREE Dittany Baby Mei Tai Carrier giveaway contest for a chance to win one of Dittany Baby's new Bliss Contoured Mei Tai baby carriers. The fabric patterns and colors are absolutely lovely and those of you who know me are well aware of just how much I love to color coordinate my shoes, purses, diaper bags and baby slings.

When hubby is tagging along, I usually prepare by bringing HIS favorite (manly) baby carrier because he doesn't appreciate the pretty colors and floral patterns of my ring slings and Mei Tai's. But if I had to choose my favorite kind of carrier, slings and Mei Tai's would rate high on the list because they are so convenient and lightweight. They don't take up much room in the diaper bag (or even a handbag) and they are good for breastfeeding. Plus, they are very attractive.

And the prize offered in the Free Dittany Baby Mei Tai Carrier Giveaway contest is REALLY cute. I read the review of the Dittany Baby Mei Tai and the opinion of the authro said that it has nicely padded shoulder straps and if you've ever carried a baby for an entire know this is a big deal. For the most part my baby carrier ratings are based on baby wearing comfort and padding is a large part of a comfortable experience for both mommy and baby.

There should be padding in the sides of the leg openings so that the carrier doesn't chafe and leave marks on the baby. Another thing I look for is the length of the straps. I'm above average in height so short straps don't work for me but the review states that the straps are very long on this mei tai so it would fit most anyone. That being said, if you are petite, you may find the Dittany Mei Tai a bit long and that they may get in the way of your work or activities.

Oh yeah...if you win the free Dittany Baby Mei Tai carrier giveaway, you don't just get the carrier you get a pretty matching carrier for the carrier! LOL

So, rush on over to the blog contest page and get your entry in before the deadline of Wednesday, June 9, 2010!
