This giveaway has ended -- thanks to everyone who entered!
We are excited to bring you yet another great giveaway from our military mama (and Daddy, too!) must-have list. Our last giveaway was a huge success, with over 140 people entering and the prize, a fantastic, brand new Alpha Omega Elite child car seat, going to a deployed Soldier and his family.
Maybe it's just me, but I think this giveaway is an even bigger deal. This time, thanks to the generous support of the Ergo Baby Carrier company, we are giving away an ERGObaby performance carrier.
This. is. huge.
A few weeks ago we named the Ergo carrier as one of our top-four pieces of gear for military parents. Here's what we said about it then:
We like the Ergo Baby performance baby carrier for its comfort and versatility. It is one of the only carriers that has been tested for children up to 90 lbs. We have used it for long hauls through the airport for up to 40 lbs (the recommended limit – and really, who wants to haul more than 40 lbs of kid on their back?) and have found it to be surprisingly comfortable considering the size of the child.
The Ergo carrier can be worn both on the front for smaller infants using the Ergo infant insert (which we have tested and love) and on the back for larger children. And after a little practice it is easy to put a child in it on your back solo – and we know from experience that doing so leaves all bystanders in awe. It’s also super easy to adjust, making swaps between mom and dad a breeze.
Since these bad boys retail for $135, I think it's safe to say that "free" is a much better idea. Plus, who doesn't love winning a giveaway? And let me just say: if you have a infant, you want an Ergo. Really.
Here's how to get your name in the hat:
