September is car seat safety month and the Britax Endeavours Infant Car Seat is the perfect new car seat for your child. Find a Britax & Lexus Test Drive Parenthood Event near you!

Things have changed a lot the past 3 years since I’ve had Addie, but one thing has not changed for our family- our love for Britax. Britax is an industry leader in safety and quality, and as I researched car seats for Addie before she was born, their name just kept coming up. Soon enough, we bought a car seat and stroller from Britax, and both have gotten LOTS of use the past 3 years. We have a great system when it comes to Addie and all her equipment, and I’m thankful that Britax covers all our needs for our family.

If you didn’t know, September is Car Seat Safety Month, and I’m thankful for it because even though I think I’m a stickler for car seat safety, there’s always information that can change. It’s always good to brush up on your info, right? Crazily enough, I recently found out that every 33 seconds, one child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Road injuries are the leading cause of unintentional deaths to children in the United States. Of those children ages 8 and under who died in vehicle crashes in 2014, 26 percent were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant seat, booster seat or seat belt. Lastly, children should ride in a vehicle back seat until they are at least 13 years old.

As a mom, those statistics are terrifying. As a special needs mom, it’s even more terrifying because I think of Addie’s equipment and what would happen to her and that equipment if we were in an accident. There is great news though- you don’t have to be terrified. Later this month I’ll be at the Britax Test Drive Parenthood car seat event where you can have a child passenger safety technician show you how to properly install a car seat, you can check out the brand new Britax Endeavours Infant Car Seat, as well as provide other helpful safety tips. It’s a great opportunity to have a professional make sure your child’s car seat is installed correctly! Not only that, but you can come meet me and we can hang out together!

Halo Bassinest Giveaway

Hey everyone! I’ve teamed up with a few of my favorite bloggers for this awesome Halo Bassinest giveaway. I hope you’ll enter, because I’m sad that I can’t! This is a great sleeper for parents that want to co-sleep safely.
Halo Bassinest Giveaway

Welcome to the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper giveaway, sponsored by HALO Bassinest
and hosted by Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro.

The HALO Bassinest swivel sleeper is the only bassinet that rotates 360 degrees for the ultimate in convenience and safety. Now your little one can sleep as close as you like, while still safely in his own separate sleep area, reducing the risks associated with bed-sharing. In addition to bringing baby close, it swivels to make getting in and out of bed hassle-free. Its unique design means baby is visible at your eye level, allowing you to soothe your baby quickly, while mesh walls provide maximum breathability. In addition, its patented side wall lowers and returns automatically, allowing you to tend to your baby while still in bed – ideal for all mothers (especially those recovering from C-sections). Its stable, adjustable base fits next to almost any bed. Designed for babies up to five months of age or 30 pounds, it also includes a soothing nightlight, sounds, music, 2 levels of vibration and nursing timer.

Check out the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper review that Thrifty Nifty Mommy just shared for more pictures and details.

The Vintage Modern Wife All Things Pink Giveaway

Let’s face it- I’m obsessed with the color pink. Before we knew Addison was going to be a girl, I told everyone, “If the baby is a girl- everything is going to be pink, pink, and PINK!” I just can’t help it. Since finding out that our sweet baby IS a girl, I’ve found so many great Instagram shops and just oohed and ahhed over all the adorable baby things. It’s my birthday this Thursday, and to kick off my birthday week I thought, why not share all the goodies that I love for Addison with all of you? So, I teamed up with 5 of my favorite Instagram shops for The Vintage Modern Wife All Things Pink Giveaway! Scroll down to the bottom to enter!
SO excited for the #VMWallthingspink giveaway on The Vintage Modern Wife's blog! I want to win so badly!

Freshly Picked is one of those companies that has just taken OFF lately on Instagram. Although their moccasins are a little on the more costly side, they’re worth every single penny. The quality of their shoes goes above and beyond those I’ve seen from any other moccasin company, and I love the variety of leather colors they offer. Not only do they offer moccasins for children, they recently came out with their carryall bags made from the same leather as their moccasins. SO. Freaking. Cute. I can’t wait to put these Neon Pink Freshly Picked Moccasins on Addison’s little feet!

These neon pink Freshly Picked moccasins are too cute! Definitely need to get these for my baby!

SugarPlum Lane Baby is another favorite shop of mine, and I can’t get over this Summer Swaddling Blanket and matching headband set. The blanket is really soft, big enough for swaddling Addison in really good, and has these cute gold glitter dots that don’t come off when you wash the blanket. The glitter not coming off was a BIG thing for me- because I would never be able to forgive myself if she got glitter in her eyes. I can’t wait until she’s born so we can get some professional pictures of Addison all swaddled up.

I'm in love with this Summer Swaddling Blanket and matching headband from SugarPlumLaneBaby. Too cute!

Sara Ellie Bows has the most adorable bow headbands I’ve ever seen. Y’all know I have a huge collection of flower headbands, but Sara Ellie Bows has bow headbands that I just die for. I asked sweet Sara (the owner) if she could make me a trio of her medium sized bows in various shades of pink, and asked her to “surprise me” when it came to the elastic bands. I was SO surprised at how perfect these headbands turned out, and immediately put them on Addison’s DIY baby headband holder. We already had a mini gold bow headband from Sara Ellie Bows, so I’m excited to add these to our collection.

These bow shaped headbands from Sara Ellie Bows are too adorable. I need this set!

I had the privilege of meeting The Printed Palette owner, Alissa, at Blissdom over a year ago and she’s such a sweetheart! Not only does she have a successful shop online, but she has a storefront location in Carlsbad, California that is so freaking cute. Although this She Leaves A Little Sparkle Wherever She Goes Puff Sleeve Baby Tee is more of a coral than pink, I can’t help but know that coral looks good on practically every skin tone, and I can just picture Addison in this tee with little shorts for the springtime.

The Tulle Box carries these adorable door signs for moms, and the The New Mom Baby Sleeping Doorbell Sign is a must have for tired mamas everywhere! The dial options have “Shhh! Baby Sleeping,” “Knock Softly,”  and “Do Not Disturb” perfect for those prone to guests, mail deliveries, or solicitors. I absolutely love this because I wont have to worry about someone waking up Addison during nap time when I’m on maternity leave, and I can put the “knock softly” option up whenever I know friends or family will be coming to drop by.

I’m really so excited to share all these awesome goodies with one lucky winner. I urge you to not only enter this giveaway, but check out these shops individually. They all have so many cute baby things (and several have stuff for moms too!)
