ChiIL Out With ChiIL Mama's Countdown to Summer Giveaways

Today marks the last day of school, here in Chicago, and we're celebrating with LOTS of giveaways for babies through adults.  ChiIL Out with ChiIL Mama all summer long, in Chi, IL and beyond! Giveaways are open to anyone in the US.  Enter through midnight on summer solstice, June 21st.

Disclosure:  ChiIL Mama was elated to be chosen as a top Blogger within the BABYBJÖRN Blogger Program.  Thanks to BABYBJÖRN for the opportunity to review and host a giveaway.  As always, all opinions are our own.

Enter HERE for your chance to win The HOT NEW BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier One Silver Mesh Carrier! (MSRP for $219.95) This new color and fabric just hit store shelves mid-May 2014. 

We dig the Baby Carrier One because seriously, one IS all you need. This comfortable carrier works for newborns through 3 years/33lbs. 

BABYBJÖRN carriers are made to last through multiple kids too. We're especially excited about the stylin' new silver mesh, just released this spring!  It's quick drying, light, simple to use, and too cool.

Here at ChiIL Mama, my ancestors came from Sweden, and I've been back there as a child and then again in 2010 with 3 generations of our family!  So, I know Sweden, and BABYBJÖRN in particular is renowned for quality, safety, comfort and style. 

To me Sweden is:

Famous wooden Dala Horses

Delicious pastries, fresh strawberries and the best chocolate in the world....

High quality, safe, baby gear we trusted for our baby Swedes and you can trust for your little loves... no matter what your heritage, gender or style.

Maypoles, hand made wildflower crowns, and folk dancing...

Children melding past traditions with the promise of the future!

Stockholm art...

Red barns, summer cottages in the country, and gorgeous, stunningly cold lakes like sweden's siljan lake in Dalerna.

And Santa Lucia celebrations.

We adore Sweden and trust Swedish companies like BABYBJÖRN to have style, safety, comfort and quality in mind.  And that's hugely important when it comes to our kids!

Baby Wearing:
Here at ChiIL Mama we're also all about baby wearing. The benefits are huge. Mine are past that stage now, but I carried them both frequently, well into the toddler years. It hasn't been so long that I've forgotten those days. I look back fondly now, but at the time, it seemed like my kids were ALWAYS on me. BABYBJÖRN carriers are great because they're made to last through multiple kids and work for newborns through 3 years/33lbs.

Hands free is KEY. 
People rave about hands free phones, etc, but think of how much bigger babies are than phones! They love to be held and moms NEED to get stuff done. So, BABYBJÖRN's Baby Carriers are a win/win. I got great at eating, working and tending my toddler while wearing my baby. I could even carry them both in comfort, because as much as little mobile ones love to climb and run, they often get tired and need a lift! 

This is a new generation baby carrier with plenty of options. There are four front and back carrying positions. The waist belt and padded shoulder straps provide ergonomic support to relieve pressure. Suitable for children aged 0-3 years.
Optimal height position for newborns. There is a special inward-facing carrying position for newborns to allow you to carry your baby high up on your chest and close to your heart. This provides you with eye contact and all-important closeness, while allowing you to supervise your child’s breathing.

The Baby Carrier One has a unique function that allows you to safely place your child on your back. You move the baby carrier from front to back while your child sits in the baby carrier, safely and securely. The shoulder straps will remain on your body like a closed loop during the process. This unique solution allows you to place your child on your back without assistance. Simple, safe and comfortable!

The Baby Carrier One has a sturdy waist belt and well-padded shoulder straps to allow you to carry your growing child as comfortably as possible. The waist belt enables you to transfer the child’s weight to your hips to relieve your back and shoulders. You can vary between four carrying positions and your child will sit in the normal or wide leg position. 

Imagine if your head weighed a third of your entire body weight! That’s how it is for newborns. Newborn babies are not strong enough to hold their heads up without support for the first five months. Just like our other baby carriers, this baby carrier can be adjusted to provide your baby with the correct head and neck support.

All fabrics are kind to your baby's skin and safe to taste. Free from health hazardous substances and certified according to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class I for baby products.

  1. My baby is due in 2 weeks so I have not been able to try baby wearing yet. I know I will love it though! She will be my first and I cannot wait to be close with her and soothe her all day!

  2. I love baby wearing because of the close bonding with my child.

  3. I love baby wearing because it keeps baby close and my hands free. This will be especially helpful with baby #2 since I have a VERY active 2.5 year old to chase after all day:)

  4. I love baby wearing because I am hands free and I love being close to my newborn
