Yesterday marked seven weeks until my family of four becomes five. Pretty soon the family won't fit into a New York taxi, we won't be a "girls only" club, and as my husband loves to say, we will go from man-to-man to zone defense. In thinking about all of these milestones and how close they actually are, it's becoming totally real to me that all this hard work involved in being pregnant is going to pay off soon and we are actually going to have a baby.......and that baby will need baby gear. Thank goodness for Momtrends and their annual Ultimate Baby Shower which is all about mamas and babies.
We celebrated last week at V Bar in Southstreet Seaport with some amazing brands, special friends, and NYC bloggers. While laughing and chatting, we sipped on La Croix sparkling water and mimosas (only La Croix for me!) We were treated to a demonstration of the Gerber BabyNes System. We learned about Baby Bjorn's Baby Carrier One new Woods Collection and Bamboobies’ products that support “nursing with heart.” And as a result of all this celebration and education, I feel like I might actually be able to survive life with three children. More importantly? So can you! Momtrends is giving away one product from every sponsor of the Ultimate Baby Shower in a giant giveaway that goes through the end of October.

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
After seeing Lauren from Momtrends' awesome BabyNes demonstration, I am SO excited to use this product in a couple of months. The convenience factor along with the tracking capabilities make me feel like I am going to be a more relaxed mother already!
LaCroix was so incredibly refreshing that I expect to be drinking this water far beyond my pregnancy - and the winner of the Momtrends' giveaway will win two cases!!
The fact that Baby Bjorn's Baby Carrier One new Woods Collection has four positions and lasts until age three is such a treat for a this third time mom!! I am thrilled with the time and money that this is saving me (and the winner of the giveaway!)
As I head into days and nights of nursing, I am happy to have the support of Bamboobies and nursing pads. For any of you mamas who have nursed your babies in the past, you know that while breastfeeding is beautiful, it can be painful and these products look amazing!
Nine months of pregnancy has given me a lot of time to wonder how I will get everything done as a mom of three. So I have to say that as I traveled home from the Momtrends Ultimate Baby Shower, I finally felt a sense of relief in knowing the answer. Along with good family and friends including the ones who showered me at V Bar, the incredible products included in this amazing giveaway are going to make all the difference in the world! In addition to BabyNes, Baby Bjorn, La Croix, and Bamboobies, the winner will also receive products from Joovy, BOOB, Sillinoogi, Aden and Anais, Babo Botanicals, and ergoPOUCH. Thank you to the Momtrends team for such a special baby shower celebration and cheers to all expectant new mothers and your babies!
