GIVEAWAY - SwaddleDesigns Ultimate Receiving Blanket! (CLOSED)



SwaddleDesigns, founded by Lynette (a registered nurse) and Jeff Damir, focuses on stylish, innovative, modern, and quality baby products that help parents comfort and care for their baby.  They manufacture in the USA with a vast majority of their products sewn in Seattle, Washington.  SwaddleDesigns is an eco-friendly company that uses many domestic fabrics, sustainable fibers, recycled fibers, and recyclable packaging.  In addition, they offer a certified organic collection.  SwaddleDesigns line offers a wonderful assortment of mixing and matching that coordinates with your baby's style - swaddling blankets, wearable blankets, security blankets, stroller blankets, adult blankets, burp cloths and bibs, baby apparel, towels and washcloths, baby bedding, and baby gift sets.

SwaddleDesigns is proud to announce their Safe Sleep Program that helps educate parents and caregivers by providing the most current information and research to increase awareness of Safe Sleep practices and help reduce risks of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).  The SwaddleDesigns Goldilocks Guide states that "baby should be dressed appropriately for the current temperature of their environment - not too hot, not too cold, but comfortably warm."      


Wow, the SwaddleDesigns Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet is exactly what I was looking for!  Not too many companies offer stylish fitted flannel crib sheets.  Before I received the Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet, I have been using SwaddleDesigns Ultimate Receiving Blanket over Baby Hsu's other fitted crib sheet to keep him warm throughout the night.  During chilly nights, I noticed that Baby Hsu would toss and turn and sometimes even wake up until I thought of placing the flannel receiving blanket underneath him.  Now, I only need the Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet and don't have to pile all the other layers in his crib.  The Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet is made in USA using 100% premium preshrunk cotton flannel.  It is sized to snugly fit a standard 28" x 52" crib mattress.  Not only is the SwaddleDesigns Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet warm for babies to sleep on, but it is also incredibly soft on the skin.        


Baby Hsu has been cozily sleeping through the nights on his SwaddleDesigns Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet (HSUper Parents-Approved)! 

BUY IT!  The Fitted Flannel Crib Sheet - Pastel with Brown Mod Circles (blue, pink, or lime) may be purchased for $32.00 at SwaddleDesigns. 

WIN IT!  SwaddleDesigns has generously offered an Ultimate Receiving Blanket of your choice to a lucky HSUper Parents reader!

Modern Rugs From CSN Stores (AllModern.com)



Hubby and I  have been searching for modern rugs for our family room, which has a contemporary feel.  Our entire first level is filled with laminate flooring and we definitely need to accent the rooms with nice rugs.  I think it's critical in choosing the right rug for a particular room.  It all depends on the room's furnishings, window treatments, and decorations.  If the room is filled with plain and simple patterns, then a bold-patterned rug with bright colors may bring out the room.  On the otherhand, if the room is filled with colorful and detailed designs, a simple rug will do the trick.


AllModern.com, one of 200+ CSN Stores, carries a wide selection of modern rugs, each design with several different sizes, for any room in the house - kids room, living room, family, dining room, master bedroom, etc.  They offer free shipping on orders over $69 with some exclusions that apply.  Currently, they're running a promotion for 20% off Domitalia furniture.  After browsing through their selection of rugs, I think the Calvin Klein Rugs Loom Select Buff Contemporary Rug (pictured above in the middle) would look very nice in our family room.  It totally matches the color of our drapery.

Costume Discounters - Lil Monster Infant Toddler Costume Review



Costume Discounters is an Internet retailer that provides a large selection of costumes for the entire family, including pets.  They promote on offering the lowest prices guaranteed (details here).  They also offer free size and product exchanges.  In addition to US orders, international ordering is available to Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia.  At Costume Discounters, you may find a variety of costumes for girls, boys, women, men, infants/toddlers, teens, plus sizes, and pets.  You may also find accessories to match your costumes, such as hats, wigs, masks, makeup, props, and decorations.


For Halloween this year, the Lil Monster Infant Toddler Costume will be Baby Hsu's first costume to go trick or treating in.  Of all the toddler costumes that Costume Discounters carry, this is my favorite costume that I adore.  The costume features a lined zippered jumpsuit with snap leg closure for easy diaper changes.  The Lil Monster's head is a hood with a fuzzy face and yellow and orange striped horns on each side.  The arms and legs are blue, while the stomach is yellow with orange spots.  Faux fur accents are found on the shoulders, cuffs, and hood.  The non-skid, slip-on booties are decorated with paws on the bottom and are intended for indoor use only.  The suit is a little too big for him now, but here's Baby Hsu with the Monster's head and feet.  Now, all Mommy and Daddy have to do is find costumes to match with Baby Hsu's costume.  


By Halloween 2011, Baby Hsu will be a little over one year old.  Hopefully, he will not be a true monster turning our house upside down.  But, he will definitely be able to "pretend" to be a monster in his Lil Monster Infant Toddler Costume (HSUper Parents-Approved)! 

BUY IT!  The Lil Monster Infant Toddler Costume may be purchased for $44.97 at Costume Discounters.
