Sling and Swaddle

I read about a contest on a blog put on my Miracle Blanket and HotSlings, and decided to enter.

Here is the info from their site...

Moms throughout the U.S. and Canada are encouraged to submit pitches between May 1st and 15th to be one of the 30 moms selected. Individuals must have a baby between the age of newborn and 3 months old. Submissions will include photos, a quick survey and a 200 word write-up. Representatives from Miracle Blanket and Hotslings will select the top
30 moms based on criteria to include visual creativity, writing creativity, overall writing style, uniqueness of family, location, story, enthusiasm, etc.

I WAS SELECTED AS ONE OF THE 30 MOMS!!!! I should be receiving 2 miracle blankets and this sling in the mail in the next few weeks. They picked me even knowing that baby boy may not arrive until the 5th. I am very excited to be a part of this competition.

This is where ALL of YOU come into play...

Each mom selected will be provided a Hotslings carrier and two Miracle Blankets, as well as the necessary parameters and custom Twitter accounts with “Journey” branded backgrounds. Links will then be listed on the host website at The competition begins June 1st as moms compete by micro-blogging daily about their journeys in motherhood. Daily features must include usage and experiences with the Hotslings carrier and Miracle Blanket as well as weekly photos. Representatives from Miracle Blanket and Hotslings will select the winning mom based on select criteria to include number of followers, creativity, collective daily average hits, etc. Moms will be encouraged to use their own personal blogs to increase visitors.

What's in it for me you ask... The chance to win all of this!!!!
