#Giveaway The First Years Family Video Contest + Prize Pack


When we are expecting or have a new baby, we welcome a new member to the family. This is something that we rejoice in, capture and share with everyone we know. Many of us see those expecting announcements on our social media and share our own joys as well, and when those little ones make their way into the world, we all see those moments, share them, and congratulate the families! Well, with a new baby, there are so many congratulations we get, and right now, The First Years is hosting an amazing contest where to enter, you share your, (WTF!) Welcome To The Family moment!

By sharing your Welcome to the Family moments, you can enter to help make your family the next online reality stars! To enter, upload those real, family moments, where you make that announcement of a new baby or you bring that new baby home, and welcome them to the family, and enter those videos in the contest, where you might not only make your family a online reality star family, but also be entered to win $2,000 in baby products, a $5,000 Savings Bond, and a iPad Air 2 so you can document your parenting journey!!!

The contest is open now and will close on March 1st, finalists will be announced on March 21st, and the web series will begin airing this June! So get those cameras out, and create your families winning video so you can become the next online reality stars!!!!
Well to get the excitement going when it comes to celebrating those Welcome to the Family moments, the wonderful people from The First Years would like to give one of my amazing readers a prize pack filled with some great baby products which include a Quiet Expressions Plus Double Breast Pump, some Gum Drop bottles, Gum Drop Pacifiers, and a Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn to Toddler Tub with Sling!

We are a a really low key family, so we just brought the baby home. Of course, we also had preemies that needed quiet once they were out of NICU.

thalia h said...

when we had our daughter we kept it as quiet as possible and requested no visitors for at least a week so we could adjust and so i could establish a feeding routine and get much needed rest. will be doing the same thing with baby number 2 coming this june. it worked out well for our first and dont plan on having visitors or visit anyone plus baby will make an appearance by Fathers Day :)

We had a peaceful home birth the second time around and because I was in my own element, I was okay with immediate visitors during and after birth without the stress of hospital staff coming and going. It worked out well and I enjoyed it. We had a few party platters and it basically was that, a quiet party.

Amelia Drew said...
