Two Tinas

Two of my friends are having babies, very very soon. I should be a very good friend and sew them something myself, something personalized. But the truth is that's likely not going to happen. I don't have the time and I certainly don't have the energy. Solution? Two Tinas.

Maybe a snapsuit or my name blanket, but probably one of their signature blankets.

Save yourself the hassle, stock up on a few baby gifts, or spoil yourself.

Warning- this website may lead to Pregnancy!

If you're not already pregnant or a brand new mama, beware! So many of my friends and many of you are emailing, "Your website makes me want to have another baby SO bad!" I feel a new tagline coming on... "BabySteals.com, overpopulating the world one baby at a time!" I'm sitting here looking at these Aden + Anais swaddling blankets and I want them for myself badly, but my daughter is TWO! Tonight Emily and I are debating. We don’t need them, our babies have outgrown them, but shouldn’t we have a few just in case?

BabySteals.com Giveaway - Boogie Wipes

UPDATE: Contest is now closed.

I'm not a neglectful mother, but sadly I regularly look like one. My little guy detests having his nose touched, wiped or even looked at. So we tried boogie wipes and I can't say he's turned into a perfect angel, but he likes the grape and wriggles less when I use them.

Boogie Wipes are the latest innovation in a moist wipe product for busy moms, dads & kids. With added saline, they offer quick, gentle, effective relief of stuck on Boogies (mucous) caused by the common cold & allergies.


  • Alcohol Free
  • Unique Formula
  • Moisturizes with added Chamomile, Vitamin E and Aloe
  • Gentle Enough for all Ages
  • Lightly Scented
Contest ends Wednesday June 25th at 9amMST.

Winner will be announced here Wednesday June 25th at 5pmMST, be sure to check back!
If you don't want to take your chances here, you can buy your own Boogie Wipes at boogiewipes.com

Stuff for Sprouts

Stuff for Sprouts, good for soothing every dry and crunchy part of your kid, but I'm going to use the product for something far more important.  Some of these little beauties are going to be safely stored until I get pregnant with baby #3.  Why?  Smell.  They smell so very lovely, like chocolate and muffins.  I'm going to pile it on under my nose as soon as morning sickness starts and keep it coming for 6 months.  Yes, I puke for 6 months when pregnant!

In the meantime I'm going to buy a few for my littlest guy.  He inherited mama's dry skin and when you suck your thumb at night things get ugly.  The little lip balm case is so easy to open and it's flat, so it's not rolling anywhere.  Thank goodness, I've lost enough tube-ey shaped dry skin products.  It smells like food so the little tank doesn't mind me slathering him in it.

Since we love you.. well, since Stuff for Sprouts loves you, you can get 15% off your order by using this coupon code:

15% discount
coupon code: BBYSTL15

Shout Out to the BabySteals.com Daddies!

We wanted to wish a very special Happy Father's Day to the 3 BabySteals.com Daddies! One of the Daddies helps run the company and has 3 of the eight BabySteals.com kids!

The other two Daddies (our husbands) are behind the scenes of BabySteals.com. Some of you have met one of them before at Local Pickup- Dr. Eric of Murray Park Chiropractic. He is Jana's husband and not only has he has spent countless hours helping her pack and ship your things, but he is on a first name basis with everyone at the post office! Sometimes they cringe when he comes in (up to 3x per day) with boxes and boxes of your 'Steals' in hand! Many of them are very curious about what the Steal of the Day was and tell us they're jealous they missed out on the Steal.

The other Daddy you can hear on the biggest radio station in Utah or online! As late as he works every night, he still is very patient when he gets home and Emily is just getting started.

All of the BabySteals.com spouses are very patient in the midst of our very late nights bringing this site to you!

Last but NOT least ... Happy Father's Day to the supportive daddies out there that cheer as their wives check BabySteals.com at 9am every morning and don't complain at all when they catch the day's steal!


Baby Slings by HugaMonkey

With toddlers it's got to be simple, fast, and no fuss. That's why HugaMonkey Baby Slings are perfect for us! No rings, no folding, and no layers and layers of wrapping fabric around you.

And for that, mad props to you HugaMonkey! Now, go get yours and Hug your Monkey. Thanks to Janet Jonas Photography for the pictures!


Lovin' the BabyLegs

Trendy Tadpole, Funny Baby Clothes

Funny is right, my husband giggled about the "AB/CD For those about to read, we salute you" for days.

The owner has such a lovely (and familiar) story:

"What is Trendy Tadpole? Fun tee shirts on super quality fabric that is made in the good ol' U.S. of A. It all started in 2004 when I decided it was time to work for myself. My therapist says I am running a sweatshop but I am the only one in it! Yikes. My inspiration came from the students I was teaching and the kids I was babysitting and I love challenges. Trendy Tadpole and it's owner, me (Julie Pruitt), are a work in progress. I am bringing pop culture, a hint of nostalgia, and a pinch of fun to the table in every tee shirt. I am constantly changing designs, styles, and ideas to meet the needs of, well, um, you! I love feedback, so if you have brilliant ideas that will make this mom and pop, minus the pop, shop even greater, lemme hear 'em. It only took wine, lots of sweat, and plenty of tears, but it was all worth it. I hope you enjoy the tee shirts as much as I like a glass of wine making them."

My son has already placed an order.

Now it's your turn, trendytadpole.com.

see kai run

Oh little Kai, keep running in my direction.

There is one reason why these shoes are abso-fabulous.


When my husband held them that's the first thing he said. Oddly, he couldn't shut up about it, but why not! Squish is important for baby piggies, as it's their first time smashed in a shoe.

A very generous company...

See Kai Run® Donation to Match All Sales Made During Month of June

Seattle, WA (May 2008) One for me. One for you. It’s a lesson children learn early on about sharing. See Kai Run, popular manufacturer of the perfect first shoe for new walkers wants to take that philosophy to a global scale by matching the sale of each shoe sold in June with a donation to Soles4Souls. It’s all part of See Kai Run’s continuing campaign to share its shoes with children who need them the most.

Soles4Souls is an international charity dedicated to providing footwear to disadvantaged people around the world. The June matching event includes both sales made online at www.seekairun.com as well as through our retail partners. Since establishing a relationship with Soles4Souls 2 years ago, See Kai Run has donated over 16,000 pairs of shoes to children in need and expects to add many more to that total as a result of this event.

"We are excited to bring this idea directly to the parents and grandparents who purchase See Kai Run shoes,” says Cause Haun, Founder. “By the end of June, we expect to put thousands of new See Kai Run shoes on the feet of children who need them most. We're grateful to have the opportunity to work with Soles4Souls who does such a fantastic job of getting the footwear to those who need it."

About Soles4Souls

Soles4Souls facilitates the donation of shoes, which are used to aid the hurting worldwide. Everyone from shoe companies to retailers and individuals can donate footwear (both new and used). The Soles4Souls team has used the gift of shoes in the relief efforts for the Asian Tsunami and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. More than 900,000 pairs were collected for these disasters. For more information, visit www.giveshoes.org.
