Win It: CaringBridge Onesie and Friendly Frog


This week we are giving away a onesie (in the size of your choosing) and stuffed frog, courtesy of CaringBridge. This is a non-profit organization that is near and dear to us MommyBetas. 

Earlier this year, we lost a friend of ours to a rare form of cancer. Her name was Maggie and he was only 29 years old. She was one of those rare people who you meet and love immediately. She was kind and funny and magnetic. Her passing has left a hole. 

Maggie kept up with her friends over CaringBridge. It is a social network of sorts where people with serious illnesses can connect with friends and family. Maggie and her family used it to let us all know how she was doing as she endured treatment after treatment. It meant a lot for her to be able to express herself to those who cared about her without having to tell her story over and over again to concerned loved ones. 

CaringBridge is a really great service that I think we should all know about, and hopefully never really need. The site runs on donations so the more we can help spread awareness, the better. Even if you don't ever visit CaringBridge, please consider keeping those that need it in your thoughts this holiday season. 

This onesie is good karma baby clothes and so is the adorable stuffed frog. Win it for the little one in your life by entering the contest below.

Win It: Kodak Hero 9.1 All-In-One Printer

This week we are giving away a Kodak Hero 9.1 All-In-One-Printer! This is a beautiful color printer, valued at $250! 

As a tech reporter, I often hear "Who prints anything anymore?" Parents of course! The holidays are here, like it or not, and now is the time for cards, photos, and other festive projects. Who couldn't use an awesome color printer/copy/fax machine? 

Kodak has put out some of my favorite digital imaging products in the last few years. What I like the most about this printer is its built-in Wi-Fi and ability to print directly from your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, BLACKBERRY, or ANDROID Device with the KODAK Pic Flick App

This printer also has a 4.3-inch color LCD touchscreen that allows you to create, copy, scan, print, and fax straight from the machine. 

This printer is yours simply by entering the Rafflecopter contest below!

Win It! Sonos Play: 3

UPDATE: Apologies for the late notice but Naldo P is the winner of this giveaway. Late entries were not taken into consideration but we appreciate your consideration. Stay tuned because we have more Sonos speakers to giveaway on the MommyBeta Podcast!

This week we are giving a suh-weet gadget, awesome for parents and non-parents alike! It is the brand new Sonos Play: 3 speaker, valued at $299. 


The video below shows off some of the cool features. We absolutely LOVE ours! 

Sonos speakers are Web connected so they use your home Wi-Fi connection to let you listen to Internet radio, podcasts, and even stream whatever music or audio content is on your home computer. You can listen to different things in different rooms if you have multiple Sonos set up in your home and you can control what you listen to with the Sonos mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. 



We use these all the time! I like to listen to podcasts or music while I'm in the kitchen while Clayton listens to something different in his office. The speakers come pre-loaded with Pandora so I often play the Disney station with Baby Mo. 


And the sound quality? Forgettaboutit! This is high quality sound. It is an impressive piece of technology. You don't have to have a little one to want this. My husband Clayton had two in his New York City apartment when he was single and living alone! 


Here is how you can win yourself one of these to impress your neighbors with your eclectic musical taste: 


  • Like MommyBeta on Facebook
  • Like Sonos on Facebook
  • Leave a comment telling us how you would use a new Sonos in your house on this blog post - not on Facebook. (Note: you must include your email when you comment so that we can reach you if you win.)

Contest closes Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Rules can be found here


Win It! BABYBJÖRN Gift Pack


We are not giving away a BABYBJÖRN this week but we are giving away something from the company that makes the popular baby holder: It is a BABYBJÖRN kitchen gift pack!

In honor of the launch of the upcoming BABYBJÖRN High Chair, which I REALLY want, the company has agreed to give away a branded gift pack that includes a BABYBJÖRN Plate and Spoon, BABYBJÖRN Cup, BABYBJÖRN Eat and Play Smock, and a BABYBJÖRN Soft Bib.

In my attempt to rid our lives of plastic, I have limited my use of the plate, spoon, and cups but I use them on the go and I do not wash them in the dishwasher. They are all BPA-free. The bib is my favorite from this gift pack because it has a lip that catches the debris of a messy eater, which Baby Mo definitely is! 

If you would like to win this, here is how:

  • Like us on Facebook
  • Post a comment in the comments section of this post (not on Facebook) about your messy or not-so-messy eater. 
  • NOTE: you must leave your email when you comment. It will be kept private and not shared with anyone. We need it to alert the winner. Entries without emails will be disqualified.

Deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. EDT, Thursday, August 11. Rules and regulations found here.
