Well now, that was a rollercoaster! Note to self: Running a multi brand giveaway with daily prizes is hard work behind the scenes!!
I hadn't anticipated how many people would email me to ask questions - I thought I'd answered them all in the lead up post introducing the brands, the big "how to win a blog giveaway" post where I told you what I was looking for in an answer and how I pick the winners and the terms and conditions. Turns out no. Well, we live and learn, right?
But nothing can take away from how awesome it feels to get an email saying you've made someone's day, that they've never won anything before and are so excited. The warm fuzzy feelings are intense and make it all worth while.
So you're all waiting to hear who the winners were aren't you? I'll stop blabbing on and get to it:
Amby Baby Hammock - Cassy N
Breastmate Breastfeeding Helper - Virginia M & Angela V
Closer To Nature Breastpump - Sarah B
Juggle Family & Parenting Consulting - Sarah B, Vyky B & Emma G
Hugabub Baby Carriers - Megan T
Britax Steelcraft Infant Carrier System - Jenn U (who wrote an amazing 6 stanza poem!)
Il Tutto Designer Nappy Bag - Tamara B
Shloer Hamper - Carissa M
Congratulations to all the winners!
Without you all entering (there were thousands of you - and yes, I read ALL the entries!) and sharing the love, Bobbin's Babyshower would not have been a success, so thank you all so much.
And a massive thank you to the brands, marketing folk and PR reps who were so generous with their products and tolerant of my baby brain.
Now we just sit back and wait for this child to make an appearance some time in August. I don't know why they give due dates considering there is a massive five week window of "full term" between 37 and 42 weeks. I'll be ready from 37 thankyouverymuch.
Unlike the Royal Baby there will be no official press release when I'm in labour, no armed guards and no easel to display the details (unless an Instagram pic with a frame counts?). But according to tradition, there is a bet on amongst friends for the date, weight and sex!
Any guesses when Bobbin will be born?
