Now, back to the Earthy Crunchy Mama Baby K'Tan Carrier Giveaway; you might be curious as to what an "Earthy Crunchy Mama" may be. Well, according to the host that is giving away this wonderful FREE baby stuff an Earthy, Crunchy Mama is an environmentally healthy person who displays a high level of social consciousness and does their best to build a strong bond with their babies for natural living in no doubt attachment parenting via high quality baby carriers and slings. Sounds like they have a good thing going on to me!

When I visited their store I found some very cool natural parenting and baby products like cloth diapers, some very nice nursing tops and baby carriers including the Baby K’tan™ Baby Carrier.

If you aren't familiar with the brand you should know that it is a (patent pending) cross between a sling carrier and a more structured front baby carrier. The unique thing about this product is that it offers the positions and benefits of both sling and highly structured front carriers with some added security features beyond what you can expect from a traditional sling. They also claim to provide a higher comfort level than your traditional carrier. And what new mother doesn't dig the concept of more comfort?

Go HERE to download your free alphabet nursery wall poster! It's not your average (read: boring) alphabet poster, this is a colorful picture of needle felted letters that will look absolutely adorable on your baby's nursery wall!

Even if you have never come across a free printable poster that was worth the time it took to download you can easily get this one sent to your inkjet print and framed in a jiffy because there are no PDF files to hassle with. All you have to do to get the free downloadable poster ready is simply click on the link that I gave you above which will take you to the original posting and you can download and print your free alphabet nursery wall poster from there.

I first printed mine on plain, old white copy paper to be sure that I had my printer settings right. By the way, you should set your printer to "fit to page" to size it to either A3 or A4 paper. After I was sure that everything was perfect, I then printed it on photo quality paper to make the colors of the ABCs a little brighter. Then I framed the picture in a black document frame to give to a friend who is decorating her baby's room in an Alphabet nursery theme.

I promised one of my visitors some free baby stuff that you don't have to work so hard for and here it is! Enjoy!

Go HERE to enter for a chance to win a FREE SWADDLE BLANKET! To swaddle or not to swaddle. If you can't decide maybe if you WIN a FREE SWADDLING BLANKET and try it out you can make a educated, informed decision. My mother-in-law talked me into swaddling my first baby even though I insisted that I would never, repeat never put my newborn in a straight jacket. Well, colic will take you places you never dreamed of going and she caught me in a weak moment when I was willing to take her advice.

Long story short, I changed my mind about swaddling infants. In fact I became such a fan of swaddling blankets that I swaddled all of my girls on occasion because I found that the practice helped them calm down and sleep better at night, which meant mom and dad slept better and we all know that if mommy is well-rested the entire family from newborns to toddlers seem calmer and more relaxed. PLUS, I have read articles that state that perhaps the most important benefit of using a swaddling blanket is that it helps reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).


Say that you fall in love with swaddling or you don't win the swaddle blanket in this giveaway. Do not despair because I waded through all the spam and bogus links to find two very nice FREE swaddling blanket patterns and here you are!

has instructions for making the flannel receiving blanket as well as for how to make a baby burrito.

has lots of pictures of the baby pattern pieces and embroidered details as well as a more fitted style.

The blog giveaway contest for the pink TrueWomb baby swaddling blanket, valued at $39.99 will close at midnight CST Wednesday, February 2 but you can check back here to find more contests giving away free baby stuff if you happen to miss the deadline or you can make your own swaddle blanket using one of the free baby patterns that I found for you!
