Special Giveaway: Baby Book!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend BEA. It's a gigantic book expo where you can meet authors and even pick up some free books.

One book in particular caught my eye and I knew it would be perfect for all of you. It's called Postcards from the Bump: A Chick's Guide to Getting to Know the Baby in Your Belly by Ame Mahler Beanland and Emily Miles Terry. You can learn more about the book and the authors on their Web site It's a Chick Thing.
Postcards from the Bump is a joyful book about pregnancy. What sets it apart from other pregnancy books is that it encourages expectant mothers to get to know their baby before giving birth just by paying attention to their bump!

There are lots of tips, recipes, sweet stories, and fun facts. For example, did you know that your baby can taste what you're eating while you're pregnant? This would be a wonderful gift for any expectant mom, but especially for nervous firsttimers who might need some help enjoying the process.

The book has been featured on Good Morning America Health and you can watch the clip here. You can also watch a very sweet, very homemade book trailer.

I have one beautiful copy on my desk, just waiting to be sent to you. I'm going to keep this contest sweet and simple, so here's how to enter:

1. Leave a comment in this post only. Comments in other posts will not count. In your comment tell me what stroller you would recommend as the best "do it all" stroller for an expectant mom--whether that mom is you, a friend, a daughter, etc.

2. Your entry will count twice if you include a link to that stroller on

You'll have until this Friday, June 26th at 6 PM (EST) to enter. After that I will close comments. The winner will be chosen at random and will be announced next Monday. And since I'll be shipping this one out myself, I'm going to have to limit entries to the continental US.

I just got a Baby Jogger City Classic, and it is wonderful! It's a smooth ride and an easy fold-up. I use it for everything! Here's the link for Baby Jogger City Classics. Thanks for the giveaway. The book sounds like a great gift!

I can't recommend anything but what I use! And it's not on, but here's the link:

It's not a fancy schmancy stroller, but it gets the job done, and has served us well! Thank you for the giveaway!

wow that's a tough one! There are so many...I have had well over 10 strollers and I'd have to say the best all around was the Peg Perego Pliko can see it here:
