Peapod Creations Mother's Day Review and Giveaway - Ends May 9, 2010

 
 
At Peapod Creations they believe in the importance of close, nurturing family ties. That is why they are particularly focused on the needs of infants and young children and how parents can best fulfill those needs. One of the most basic needs of a newborn is to be held in close contact with mother, father or other caregiver. This helps infants develop their trust in the world. It also enables parents to develop their awareness of their baby’s cues and confidence in their ability to meet their baby’s needs.
Babies need and love to be held. It calms and soothes them, promoting health and development. There is a better way of carrying your baby than using a conventional baby carrier. The CuddlyWrap™ from Peapod Creations is a hands free way to hug your baby close so they feel safe and secure.
I was pretty excited to team up with Peapod Creations for a Review and Giveaway here at Organic Girl and I was so very fortunate to be sent a Cuddly Wrap, Blanket and a set of Peapod Burp Cloths for Review.
The CuddlyWrap™ I was sent is a certified organic cotton product. Many have contributed to its’ production, all with the goal of preserving our planet and achieving fair trade. Peapod Creations is committed to the environment, Fair Trade Labour Practices and quality craftsmanship.
    This is a very lightweight and breathable wrap and I was  thrilled to be sent Chocolate Brown.  A wonderful dark color!!

Organic Cotton is so soft to the touch, and this Baby Wrap is  lightweight, breathable, washable and it takes up less room than other carriers.  It can easily be rolled into my Diaper bag if I am taking it out on the go. 
This is a super wrap for smaller babies. Cuddle your baby in comfort with no bulky fabric between you and your baby, helping you to be more aware of your baby's needs and cues.
Complete in the box you will recieve a Video and Booklet explaining step by step instuctions on ways to use your Cuddly Wrap.  My favorite way to carry Emma is both back and front. Emma loves to be cuddled to sleep and this can really can break my hips now that she is older and have been using my Cuddly Wrap to help me out and  this Wrap seems to put her out within minutes of carrying her. It is really amazing.  The back way of carrying her works just as wonderful and what I like the most is it is very adjustable to your body. 

There are so many wonderful advatages to using a Cuddly Wrap:
  •      It Distributes baby’s weight over your entire upper body.
  •      Everyone can carry without stress or strain.  There are no seams, straps, snaps, or buckles to adjust, break, or lose.
  •      Be Active With Ease, Wraps you and your baby together in a soft, secure fabric. The strength is in the fabric and the security is in the way the CuddlyWrap™ is tied. Hands free movement helps with day to day activities.

  •      You can feed your baby without removing the CuddlyWrap™. Even when your baby is removed, you can continue wearing it until the next time it’s needed; it wears like a piece of clothing.
  • The ends of the CuddlyWrap™ are tapered so that there is less bulk around the waist for smaller adults who may need to bring the ends around their waist a couple of times. The length of the wrap also makes it possible for most adults to use over heavier outerwear in colder weather.
  • The CuddlyWrap™ has been designed so that it is possible for adults of all sizes to use it with comfort in all the various positions. It does not need any extra adjustments between adult users – each adult can tie the wrap to fit for them.
  • There are no age or weight restrictions. The CuddlyWrap™ is completely ergonomic for both adult and baby or toddler, and there are no straps to adjust or sizing for adult or baby. The CuddlyWrap™ can be used as long as you and your baby/child are comfortable. The way the CuddlyWrap™ is tied evenly distributes the weight of your growing baby over your entire upper body without any stress points. Many have found that it is much easier to carry a heavy baby/toddler in the CuddlyWrap™ than to carry in arms only. We have experience carrying baby/toddlers over 30 lbs. and up to 3 year.
 Peapod Creations also makes wonderful Double lined Blankets for your baby. 
I was sent a  Black and Sage Blanket from their collection.
  Emma is "blankie" baby and even at 16 mths, this is a great Blanket for her to cuddle with. The Double Layer makes it really comforting and cuddly and its big enough for her as well.  A great swaddling blanket, this also has a handy little pocket for what ever you may need close by, such as a tissue, soother, teething ring etc.
  • 100% organic cotton;
  • dyes meet Oeko-Tex 100 Standard
  • Ultra soft against baby’s delicate skin
  • 32” square, great for swaddling newborns
  • A pocket for a tissue, soother or teething ring
  • Double-layered, reversible
 The next must have for any new mom are Burp Cloths. Peapod Creations sent me a set of their Burp Cloths for Review and they are a wonderful size and for a baby with a sensitive stomach these are perfect. Double lined, they are soft and well made.  I love the kidney shape and I have found mine to be most useful lately when Em is sick and I have to tote her around.  {She gets snotty and they really are soft and help my shoulder!} The extra accents and  trim make Peapod Burp Cloths very durable and stylish.
Burp Cloths
  •          100% organic cotton;
  •         dyes meet Oeko-Tex 100 Standard
  •     Ultra soft against baby’s delicate cheeks
