Glow Baby Giveaway

**Contest is Closed**

Y'all know I'm a list person. I like to write things down. I've always been this way but more so now that I'm chronically suffering from mommy brain... if I don't write it down, I forget it or forget to do it, simple as that.

Glow Baby is a fabulous Canadian company that creates products that make Moms' lives easier. Perfectly timed, I got the chance to try out the Baby's First Foods Journal. This "baby" has everything you need when you're starting solids with your little 'un. Basically every doctor you speak to will recommend that, when introducing new foods, you stagger them and keep track of when it was introduced in case of allergy or sensitivity. Baby's First Foods allows you to keep track of, not only, the time and date of when a food was introduced but also the amount that was give, the texture, temperature, and your child's reaction (using a series of smiley faces - see picture - click to enlarge). The journal is broken down by food group too which makes it easy to keep track of progress into new and "exciting" adventures (e.g. meat and dairy)! :p

One of my favourite features of the Baby's First Foods Journal is the meal planner. I find if I don't layout a general "plan" for what Jane will eat during the day, I end up doing one of two things (1) not realizing how much or little solids she's had during the day and, usually, not giving her enough or (2) not giving her a well balanced mix of veggies, fruit, meat, etc. throughout the day. The meal planner rocks! There's also an area for writing down your favourite recipes - which, of course, you know I love because I love to make my own baby food (
click here to see some of the recipes I've shared).

Within the first pages in the Baby's First Foods Journal is the Allergies and Sensitivities page... probably the most important page in the book. Perfect for keeping babysitters, grandparents, and even your husband up-to-date on the latest reactions your child has had to certain foods. This is one of the nicest benefits to a journal like this - it makes it easy for other caregivers to see what your baby typically eats, how much she eats, what she likes, etc. Saves you a bazillion "does she like _____?" or "have you ever tried giving her _____?" phonecalls when Grammy is on baby duty!


Glow Baby has several other products to help Mom's (and Dad's - yeah right, I can't imagine my hubby tracking anything) stay organized...

Baby's First Journal looks like it would have been perfect for those first few months with a newborn... allowing you to track breast (or bottle feeds) by time, which breast, how much, etc. (see picture). For a new Mom - a lifesaver, especially when you're in the those first few weeks and trying to get baby back up to birth weight. It's no surprise that Baby's First Journal is a PTPA Award Winner and you know what that means - other Moms and Parents have given it the THIS PRODUCT ROCKS stamp of approval! Glow Baby's also created several note pads for everything you need - To Do Lists, Babysitter Notes (Hallelujah), Shopping list and Medicine Pad.


What would I change about these products? That I had known about them earlier! :p

So, yeah, yeah, yeah Jen - you want one???

I've looked at these before, but didn't know they had a first foods journal! That's the one I'd love to win. Currently pregnant with my 2nd, I remember how hectic those first few months of solids can be - this would be such a help!

Oh - and I voted and became a fan on facebook too.

I would have loved to have had the journals when Lucas was newborn and first starting foods. I may have to pick them up for my next one :) And I think those note pads would be very helpful right now! Thanks for continuing to let us know about great products!

Baby's First Fooods journal is something I could definitely use. I think it will be a very hectic time and this would help me keep track of everything!

Sarah said...

wow, what great products! The baby's first journal would have been really handy, I still have all the random papers with that info on them, a nice book would have been much more handy. And the solids journal is awesome too! I will have to remember these things for the next babe....right now though the list pads would be really handy since I can't remember a thing anymore!

Kate said...

These look great!

I love the baby first foods journal.

My daughter is 7 months old now, and I'm already confused as to what she's tried so far.

My friend who is a mother of 3 just called me the other day to ask about cereals, because she can't remember what she fed her other two and how they reacted. She advised me to write it all down!

Angelene said...

Voted! I think Babies First Journal looks great. I already have a baby book for Abby, but this journal would be great for baby #2. I actually saw these books in halifax today at "Nurtured" on Robie.

Another great giveaway!

Stephanie Chaisson said...

Would love to win the first foods journal! My son tried solids a month ago and had an allergic reaction. We've stopped and will be trying solids again and the journal would be so helpful for me to keep track of any other possible allergies. Wish I would have bought it last month!
