Earth Week Giveaways, continued!

Tuesday, April 21, 2009
This blog entry is by far the most popular of all my blog entries...even 2 years later (I had 65 hits on this entry in January 2012 alone...). I am sorry if you found this via google search for FuzziBunz giveaways only to find out this one ended 2 years ago! But, welcome to my blog anyway! Feel free to stick around and explore, since you've made it this far already :)







Earth Week Challenge update for day 2:  we are doing AWESOME on this minimal lighting thing! We went on another evening walk before dinner.  I cleaned up the kitchen tonight without using paper towels--used a cloth instead.  Kept the chargers unplugged.  How are your challenges going?

I am glad so many people have had a chance to enter the FuzziBunz giveaway!  I am so happy to be able to provide the chance for one of you to either try cloth diapers for the first time, or add to your current stash, courtesy of FuzziBunz

I am also pleased to be able to share with you another giveaway, this time from The Boppy® Company.  (for some reason, I almost always type "Bobby" instead of "Boppy"...my apologies in advance if I miss one throughout the post.  I'm not sure how this keeps happening because the "b" and the "p" keys aren't even typed by the same hand, so why does my brain keep doing that? I'm open to your thoughts on why, if you've got them...)

Moving on...

As soon as I became visibly pregnant with Lincoln, I started receiving TONS of advice from people about pregnancy, birth, babies, nursing, products....etc.  The "Boppy®" name was dropped more than a few names.  At the beginning, I feigned like I knew what they where talking about.  "Oh, the Boppy®.  Of course I'm registered for the Boppy®.  Psh.  It's practically the first thing on my list."  Meanwhile, I kept a mental note in my head to look up what in the world people were talking about once they had left--I admit, I had a picture in my head of a balloon for some unreasonable reason.  

The Boppy®, it turns out, is not a balloon.  Surprise!  What it is, though, is a c-shaped pillow designed for aiding moms (or dads ) in nursing or bottle feeding baby.  It can also be used as a support for baby during tummy time or to help baby sit up while playing.


To use as a feeding aid, the Boppy® wraps around mom's (or dad's) waist.  Baby lays on top of the pillow and is supported at a comfortable height while feeding.
  
I received a Boppy® Bare Naked® pillow (meaning an uncovered pillow--hence the "naked") and an organic slipcover as a gift before Lincoln was born.  When he was first born and was so tiny, I did use the Boppy® to help raise him up when nursing him because I was so exhausted it was hard for me to hold him up there for that long (he was a marathon nurser at the beginning--we're talking 45 minutes to an hour every 2 hours).  Now that he is bigger and doesn't need to be propped up as much (and is much more efficient at eating), I don't really rely on the Boppy® for nursing purposes, but I do like to use it to help Lincoln sit up when we play, especially in the morning when we are just waking up.  He also does like to use it for tummy-time.  He isn't tummy-times #1 fan (I'd place him more along the lines of fan #3489, but who's counting?), so being up higher on the Boppy® seems to help him tolerate tummy-time for a little bit longer. And, not really a recommended Boppy® pillow use, but they also make great neck supports for parents when watching TV or reading in bed. The Boppy® Bare Naked® pillow is meant to be covered with a Boppy® slipcover that can be removed and easily washed should baby happen to spit up on it (as if that would ever happen--ha!).


The Boppy® Company also makes some other great looking products, such as the newborn lounger pillow, play gyms, bouncers, tummy play pads (this looks great, actually), and more. For moms-to-be, they also make a line of pregnancy pillows that is awesome.  I had the Total Body Pillow, and I am forever indebted to it for helping me get any sleep at all during months 6-9 of the pregnancy!

In honor of Earth Week, one lucky Our Lincoln Log reader will win an organic Boppy® slipcover and a Boppy® Bare Naked® pillow from The Boppy® Company!

  6. Kelly, thanks for stoppin' by my blog yesterday... cvs is awesome, walgreens is complicated. I love helping people get started on it though, so if you have ANY questions, shoot me an email and I'll see if I can help!! (momnixon at gmail.com)

    What a fun giveaway! I love the boppy, i already have one... however, I have two prego buddies who don't have one yet! :) I love the star power cover and would try the shopping cart liner.

    Also, I love our boppy 'cause when our boy started sitting he was super wobbly and would fall over backwards... we'd set the boppy behind him and it would protect his little noggin!

  24. I would love to try the Boppy Swing; I've read some good reviews on Amazon about it. My favorite slipcover is the Pismo Stripes Blue. AND... I actually DO have a Boppy on my list, but only because I'm a newborn nurse and have seen quite a few in action!

  46. Hi Kelly! I might as well do all of them, right?
    So what if I don't have a kid yet.
    So I really like the Carry in Comfort Dual Support Sling and the Confetti Stripes Cover. I became a follower and subscriber of your blog too.

  50. I've been trying to do what you suggested and keep the lights to a minimum. Not off completely, but only in the rooms I'm in. Nathan scolded me last night for leaving the kitchen light on and coming in the living room. I guess I still have a lot to learn :(

  54. I think I would like to try the Carry In Comfort Dual Support Sling from Boppy with baby #3 due this summer. It looks comfy. I loved my Boppy with my other two children. It was just a nice place to set the baby down, not just too nurse. This one looks so comfy. I really need a new one after two little ones have been through it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like the organic boppy cover with the sweet little peas in the pod.

    They also sell the flower noggin' next head support, which looks like a good idea for newborns.
