My new online hangout – plus a giveaway from Citrus Lane!

What's in the box?

We have a winner! Scroll to bottom of the post to find out who won.

As you probably have figured out, I’ve been pregnant – and a new mom – quite a few times. And while my second pregnancy and beyond never quite matched the information-seeking fervor of that first one, for me there’s nothing like expecting a baby – even if it is the fifth – for causing a sudden, uncontrollable desire to do extensive research on the best baby butt creams and uterus-toning herbal teas.

If you can relate, you’ll understand why I was so excited when asked me to be on their panel of mom bloggers. Think of Citrus Lane as a jelly-of-the-month club, but instead of a monthly delivery of spreadable fruit, you’ll get a beautiful gift box containing 4-5 fun and highly-recommended baby products. The products are tailored to baby’s age, and you can subscribe at any time (boxes are designed for babies up to 18 months old.) Basically, they’re lovely monthly care packages from moms, for moms.

Check out the brands included in some of the gift boxes – they include long-lived trusted brands like Weleda and Baby Bjorn, along with newer gems like Aden + Anais (they make those awesome huge muslin swaddle blankets) and Plum Organics. Each box costs $25 but contains up to $50 in retail product, so it’s a great value.

I’ll be blogging weekly at about pregnancy, new mom-hood and beyond – you can check out my first post here. I’d love if you’d stop by and say “hello!”

To celebrate our partnership, Citrus Lane will be giving one of my readers a three-month subscription to Citrus Lane. Use it for yourself, or give it to a friend or family member who’s got a little one. It’s a gift I would have been thrilled to get.

Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment on this post!! Do you think this is as cool an idea as I do? Would you keep the boxes for yourself or send them to a friend?
  • For additional entries (up to 2), you can check out the Citrus Lane Facebook page (a “like” is always appreciated) and/or stop by my first CitrusLane blog post and say “hello.” Then come back and leave an additional comment(s) on this post letting me know you did! (I can’t enter you more than once if you don’t leave the additional comments, so don’t forget that part.)

Winner will be chosen randomly from all entries using the plugin “And The Winner Is.” Contest will end at 3 PM EST on Wednesday, Sept 21, and I’ll announce a winner in this post by Friday, September 23.  Thanks, and good luck!

Using the plugin “And The Winner Is”, I randomly selected one commenter to win the Citrus Lane subscription. The winning comment is:

Your Winner
