Stephanie, created of the Zipadee-Zip wearable blanket, is one of our favorite people in the world, and when she heard that we were doing a birth-story themed Labor Day giveaway, she was eager to share her own birth story with all of you! Here it is:

Stephanie Parker, Creator of ZipadeeZipI was induced into labor with our daughter, Charlotte, who is now 3 years old because of how far past her due date she was, so when I became pregnant with our son, I was hoping that things would happen a bit more naturally. Our son, Maverick, was born on February 16th of this year and he came into this world in a way that only a baby named ‘Maverick’ could!
Maverick was always an active little guy and would often wake me up in the middle of the night while I was pregnant because of how loud his hiccups were! On the 16th, he woke me up once again, but this time it was with more than hiccups! I woke up to a hard kick followed by an audible ‘pop’… followed by my water flowing like Niagara falls! I was so excited that he came into the world in his own timing and I will never forget the excitement of rushing to the hospital knowing we were about to meet him. After having lost a baby to miscarriage only a year before Maverick was born and being told that I may not even be able to get pregnant again, the birth of our little guy brought more joy than I can even express in words!

Swanling Slumber Sleeper™, Slumber Swan, and Slumber Silkie

MySlumberSleeperThe Slumber Sleeper™ is an innovative approach to creating a cozy, loving and safe sleeping environment for your child. Created by Swanling Innovations, this innovative 3-in-1 sheet is the perfect safe sleep solution for your child – it’s a mattress protector, fitted sheet, and sleep blanket all in one! Paired with the wonderfully soft Slumber Swan and luxurious Slumber Silkie, both with the snap-in-place system, you and your child will enjoy a better (and safer) night’s sleep. One lucky winner will receive the Slumber Sleeper™, the Slumber Swan, AND the Slumber Silkie.

2014 National Sleep Awareness Week Giveaway – 10 Awesome Prizes!

sleepawareness_fb2Happy National Sleep Awareness Week, readers! Bet you didn’t even know this was a special week, did you? Well, it is – at least, it is for those of us who tend to be preoccupied with sleep! Thanks to the National Sleep Foundation, we have a week each year that promotes and highlights our favorite topic – sleep! Coinciding with the start of Daylight Savings Time, this week is designed to help promote the benefits and necessity of healthy sleep habits.

Here at The Baby Sleep Site, we certainly want to do our part to help promote sleep awareness. (It’s kind of our job, after all!) So, in the spirit of National Sleep Awareness Week, we’re offering up 3 tips designed to help you maximize your baby or toddler’s sleep. Check them out below:

  1. Amount of Sleep – The amount of sleep your baby or toddler needs varies by age. Newborns and young babies will obviously need more sleep than an older baby or toddler. For more information about how much sleep your baby or toddler needs by age, please see this article.
  2. Schedule and Routine – A good schedule and routine are essential to helping your baby or toddler get the sleep they need. It also creates a sense of predictability and helps set their body clock, which will ultimately keep your baby or toddler from getting overtired and being able to go to sleep when it’s time. Please visit our Schedules page for a full list of our sample baby and toddler sleep schedules by age.
  3. How to Get Your Baby on a Schedule – Having a good idea of what kind of schedule your baby or toddler should be on is good information to have, but the next step is to then help your baby or toddler to adapt to that schedule. We suggest you read this post for some additional information on how to put your baby on a nap/sleep schedule.

In honor of this sleep-themed week, we are so pleased to host a Sleep Awareness Week Giveaway for you, our dear readers! And this year, in addition to our Grand Prize, we have a fantastic list of other sleep-related prizes to help your baby or toddler get the sleep they need (and you too!) Keep reading for more details about the prizes and how to enter!

Entries to the giveaway will be accepted today through 11:59 pm EST, March 9, 2014. Please note that some prizes are only available to US entrants. Prizes will indicate whether they are only available to US winners or available internationally.

Baby Shusher

Babyshusher-web

The Baby Shusher™ has been called a “Sleep Miracle” and was created by real parents with a genuine passion to help babies sleep.

This is a doctor-approved and thoroughly tested technique designed to break a baby’s cry spell and engage their natural calming reflex. The rhythmic shush reminds baby of being inside mom, where they were inundated 24 hours a day with loud sounds of blood flow and other in utero noises (up to 85 dBs, or the sound of a very loud vacuum cleaner). What may sound harsh at first is actually very calming to a baby. The Baby Shusher™ has two timer options, 15 and 30 minutes. It also easily attaches to car seat, stroller, swing or crib and works for newborns and up.

You can read more on the Baby Shusher website, or you can purchase one directly if you don’t want to wait to see if you’ve won!

10 lucky winners will each receive a Baby Shusher. *This prize is available to U.S. and International entrants.

Tuck Me In! Book

Tuck-Me-In-smallTuck Me In! by Dean Hacohen, is the irresistable, best-selling, interactive bedtime book that was an Oprah 2012 favorite. The stars are out. The moon is rising. All the baby animals, from peacocks to pigs to zebras, are ready for bed. Will you tuck them in and say good night? Just turn the pages and the big inviting flaps that serve as blankets cover each little creature up to its chin. This simple but endlessly satisfying novelty, with its array of goggle-eyed baby animals, bold patterns, and vibrant colors, is sure to be the book of choice for little ones everywhere, night after night.

Based on the idea that kids are more receptive to being tucked in if they first get to tuck in others, Tuck Me In! has been published in multiple languages and has been delighting little ones and their parents all over the world.
