Welcome to the the ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY hosted by 5 Minutes 4 Mom !!!
I already made a mistake and linked the wrong post at the Linky. But I made it here - panting, but I'm here! So let me do a quick introduction - I'm Jamasise - a product review blogger, Momma to two silly boys and soon to add a baby girl to the bunch (if you only knew how excited!), I'm a conscious consumer and as natural as I can be.
This is my second year participating in The Ultimate Blog Party. Last year when I participated I was only a four month old blogger - I don't know how I did it! Like I said I already messed up this year :) It is so ultimate though and I look forward to the hopping I'll be doing over the next few days - Saturday will be a perfect day for getting out and mingling around the blogosphere. See you then - Have FUN & good luck in winning a prize!!!
My top three prizes I'd like to be entered for are -
INTL #2 - Drooling here- a custom Wordpress blog by Uniquehorn Designs - I would love to switch to WordPress but am not sure how to do it at this time & her designs are PERFECT!
US # 101 - $450 Human Touch Foot and Calf Massager @ Still Blonde After All These Years! - I'm in my last trimester and my poor feet & legs are not happy about that!
USC #35 - $50.00 CASH ~ Paypal Transfer from American Muslim Mom :) I would probably buy some tiny pink clothes with it if I won. Definitely something pink!
After that, there are so many great prizes listed ... USC # 3 , USC # 15, USC# 8 , USC #34 , US #10
Thanks for stopping by my little party :) I hope you have fun visiting all the stops around the blogosphere - I know I will!
For my first party prize, I'm offering Baby Elephant Ears which is such an impressive product. Think of all the times you've worried about the discomfort of a wobbly head in a car seat, or rolled up a blanket to prop up a sleepyhead during a car ride.
I know it was always a problem even with the wings that have been added to most car seats and carriers.
So, when I saw Baby Elephant Ears, I thought - What a simple, yet brilliant idea! At the same time so cute - they look like little elephant ears in a range of cute designs and organics to suit your style and baby's gender. It's one of those wonderfully simple products that is exactly what the phrase " necessity is the Mother of invention" means. Also one of those that makes you think "Why didn't I think of that!!!".
About The Creators:
Every mother is a working mother.
No one knows this better than Alicia Overby. She is the wife of one, mother of four, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. The Overby’s four children range in age from 5 to 1, which means that for the past five years the Overby household has been filled with love, joy and, of course, babies! Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. Alicia truly loves being a mom, but in 2005, when their second child, Finn, was an infant her heart ached for her tiny baby boy. Finn cried all the time and just couldn’t seem to get comfortable. As Alicia recounts from those fretful days of parenting, “We had to run our vacuum cleaner for hours on end because the noise was the only thing that seemed to give him comfort.”
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where Finn was successfully treated for a subluxation. The chiropractor explained that Finn’s discomfort was most likely the result of the strain Finn experienced during labor and was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. The hope was that Finn would experience relief in his sore neck and his digestive tract would be aided by proper head, neck and back alignment. The chiropractor suggested the Overbys try using something to support their baby and better support his head and neck when he was in a seated position (such as a car seat, stroller, or carrier). Unsatisfied that she couldn’t find anything that fulfilled her needs perfectly on the market, Alicia did what any good parent would do- she took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
Over time Finn changed and adjusted to life outside of the womb with much help from his new support pillow. Alicia determined the experiment had been a success worthy of sharing with others.
Baby Elephant Ears:
A win, win, win situation!
A win for the consumer: Baby Elephant Ears is a beautiful and useful baby product: great for babies, great for parents, and great for friends and relatives seeking thoughtful creative baby gifts.
A win for the community: Baby Elephant Ears is a woman owned small business that utilizes local resources and supports fair and honorable labor practices for production. While Alicia has a hand on each and every product, all products are sewn partially by students at the Minneapolis based non-profit, Project Regina, a sewing school for refugees and immigrants, whose mission is to assist refugees in their adjustment to American life and in their efforts to become self-sufficient.
A win for the creator: Alicia and Scott want to acknowledge what a blessing this opportunity is for their family. Baby Elephant Ears is an opportunity to create a product they can feel passionate and proud of while allowing Alicia to be a work-at-home mom and satisfy the needs of her most important clients- Lilly, Finn, Sylvi, and Pearl.
Again, Baby Elephant Ears are an amazing product that EVERY mom could use. The peace of mind that your comfortable baby brings is priceless.
Perfect baby shower gift, gift for any new Mom, or gift for your own child :)
