NewBornMom Giveaway

NewBornMom Giveaway


Today's giveaway is for a Smoothie Spa-at-Home Kit from NewBornMom! {ARV $59}
Open to US, Canada, and Puerto Rico

Go ahead and pamper yourselves, ladies --you've earned it!

Here's more info on it:
"You need to feed your skin to elasticise it and The Smoothie Kit has everything you need to treat yourself to a home version of those expensive spa treatments. Includes: Moisturizing Shower Cream, Body Buff, and O-Mega Body Oil."

Although I do not yet have children, I am quite fond of shops who actually try to provide quality, affordable products to moms and babies. What immediately interested me about NewBornMom is that the available products are not only lovely but they are also eco-friendly and made from sustainable materials. Case in point, the Smoothie Spa-at-Home Kit (pictured above) description states that the moisturizers in the kit are "free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and cruelty-free." Personally, any company that avoids testing on innocent, helpless bunnies is fine by me!

After exploring the site for a good, long while I can confirm that NewBornMom is a great shop for other reasons too: 1. They offer gift ideas for proud moms and dads. 2. There is a wide range of green selections for people with all sorts of different tastes and preferences. 3. The listed items are adorable but with an appreciated dash of quirkiness. (The Rockabye Baby music, Fleurville diaper bags, wooden toys, organic pajamas, refreshing shampoos, and Svan and Fresco high-chairs are all prime examples.)

Now, on to my interview with Fernanda and Aliette
--founders and owners of the NewBornMom boutique!

1. How did the idea for NewBornMom originate?

Two newborn moms ourselves wanting elegant, modern and environmentally safe essentials for our babies and us, but feeling too overwhelmed between late-night feedings and fast-paced careers to go shopping… We decided to take matters into our own hands and after much chatting and e-mailing ideas back & forth, NewBornMom was finally born the summer of 2007!

2. How do you select which specific items are going to be featured in your boutique?

We carefully choose all the products in our store, as many of them are what we personally use on our babies. We made sure all the products were, not only, chic and beautiful but that they also contained hypoallergenic, organic or baby-friendly materials. It is also important to note that we support Fair Labor Trade and have made sure that every item we offer was made in proper working environments (no sweat shops here.) In keeping with this belief, we have also been mindful that our company uses recycled office supplies, mailers and boxes; we pride-ourselves in being a relatively paper-free business as most of our correspondence is via e-commerce.

3. What motivates you to offer eco-friendly selections?

When we started the company we had both become first-time mothers and the new experience brought upon some dramatic changes to our lifestyles, principles and outlook on life. All of a sudden junk food, chemical-filled products, toxic toys became major areas of concern. We felt an urgent need to improve the environment our daughters would grow up in and the answer seemed to be – to go GREEN!

4. Which item, so far, has been the most popular with NewBornMom customers?

We have a lovely line of apparel which includes bodysuits, pants, socks and hats designed with delicate soybean protein fiber which has an ultra-soft feel. Soybean protein fiber is a "green" fiber using leftover pulp from tofu and soymilk production as raw material. Our customers love the look and feel of this line and if they buy one item they tend to come back to buy more! The Rockabye Baby Lullaby Collection is also very popular. Who wouldn’t want to listen to their favourite bands while putting their baby to sleep!

5. If you had to put together a gift basket using items from your shop which three would make an ideal package and why?

This is a tough question as we love everything in the store, but three items that are not necessarily essential but are absolutely gorgeous and very practical are the Bambu™ Baby Bowl, Bambu™ Spoon & Fork Set and any one of our slings. The bowl, spoon and fork set will help you "Green" your kids' mealtime. They are a stylish non-plastic alternative to traditional kids' plates and utensils. Made from 100% organically grown bamboo (that means no pesticides or nasty chemicals), they are perfectly sized for tiny hands in the learning stages of self-feeding. A sling is a very comfortable and healthy alternative for taking your child for a stroll and encourages bonding between the baby and Mom or Dad! The slings we sell are free of formaldehyde and dyed using low-impact inks - which means safe for baby, parent and the planet.

6. If you could write a haiku about NewBornMom's mission what would it be?

Eco-friendly essentials,
Elegant babies,
Content, satisfied and relaxed parents.

i love the organic crib sheets in cupcake and monkey...there is something really comforting and vintage about the design so they look like nursery classics. But I love that they are organic, green and so also modern at the same time!
