One Whole Year Event Day 7: EcoMom!

Welcome to Day 7 of my One Whole Year Event! (Remember, to enter you must visit the original One Whole Year giveaway post, and complete the mandatory entry first. ALL extra entries must also appear on THAT post!)

So far, I’ve announced 6 prizes in the package:

  • One Kawaii Minky Bamboo one size cloth diaper in the new olive green color
  • The in-stock baltic amber teething necklace of your choice from Inspired by Finn!
  • A prize bundle from HappyBaby, including the book, HappyBaby: The Organic Guide to Baby’s First 24 Months!
  • A BabyBond, for nursing and conversing!
  • A snuggly Keptin Jr. organic cotton Rabby from Hazelnut Kids!
  • A 2-week supply of Milkin’ Cookies (lactation cookies for mom!)

This has been a fun week, but it’s not over yet!  :D

Today’s featured sponsor is EcoMom!


As you may recall, I recently did a review of Plum Organic Baby Food from EcoMom. That’s because EcoMom was generous enough to sponsor my One Whole Year event AND offer a separate giveaway for a $25 gift card to their site!

To visit my EcoMom review and enter the $25 gift card giveaway, click here. (This link also includes a 15% discount code!! ) Ends 11/25.

My super lucky One Whole Year winner will be receiving one of our favorite baby products ever! One of my very first blog posts was about Under the Nile veggie teethers (check it out here) and we still love them just as much today. My winner will be receiving the organic cotton carrot teether, just like this one:

Just a reminder, EcoMom carries great eco-friendly products for all members of the family! In fact, I’ve given the link to Santa so he knows where to get me a new lunch carrier for work! :)

Thanks again, EcoMom! If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go check out the Daily Deal…

Why CSN is even cooler than I thought…

A few months ago, I was introduced to CSN Stores through some of my foodie blog friends, and I spent a little time browsing through their 200+ online shops, looking at everything from ice cream makers and bedding to wardrobes and cool baby gear. I was intrigued by the huge selection available through CSN, and I promised myself I’d visit again soon…

Well, little man’s birthday is creeping up on me fast, and it’s time to do some shopping! So, I headed back to CSN to find some toys and other fun stuff.  I wasn’t sure what I’d find, but I had a few things in mind and I was hoping to get enough of my gifts there to meet the $69 requirement for free shipping (not hard to do, considering you can buy just about anything at CSN.)

I headed over to CSN Baby and clicked on the “Go Green” option (just look for the little leaf at the top of the page.) This is an AWESOME feature, because it enables you to put a “green” filter on your entire search. Priceless, especially if you’re also trying to make lunch while chasing a baby who has recently learned how to run…. 8O

Imagine my surprise when I found TONS of toys! :D I could do every bit of my birthday shopping here, and my holiday shopping too! I was thrilled to find Plan Toys, Green Toys, Wonderworld, and so many others. I promise you this goes way beyond any blogger/sponsor partnership. Anyone who has spent time searching stores for better play alternatives knows that this is a goldmine!

There were cute organic stuffed animals, sleek modern toys, old fashioned wooden classics…and I didn’t have to worry about screening them for yicky plastic and toxic paints, because CSN already did that for me. So what should I get?

This cool Svan Scooter?

This creativity-inspiring  Bilibo Play Shell?

This Wonderworld Rapping Kangaroo Push Toy?

I made a preliminary list of about 20 favorites. This coming from the mother who says things like, “I don’t think babies need a ton of toys.”

Oh dear. I think I’m in trouble.

Ready to shop? Head over to Crave to Save where you can enter to win a $35 CSN gift certificate! Ends Oct 23!

or, visit Psychic Mama, Indigo Child and enter to win a $75 gift certificate! Ends Oct 17!

I love shopping online! Do you shop online? Do you do it because you prefer it, or do you do it out of necessity?
