Moms on Call Giveaway

Before I had my first child, there wasn’t a plant, puppy, or goldfish that had a prayer of survival. I was hopelessly inept to care for another life form so you can imagine the predicament I found myself in once Salem arrived. I’ve heard it said that most new moms wonder if the doctor threw away the manual with the placenta. I was definitely one of those moms. I had read the gospel according to “Baby Wise” but still felt like I had jumped the plane without a chute.

Enter Laura Hunter of Moms on Call.

There I was in the throes of postpartum depression, covered in spit-up and thrush, when Laura showed up at my doorstep. She was nothing short of a miracle sent from Heaven. She walked Clark and I through everything from feeding, bathing, swaddling, and bedtime routine. She even showed us how to use those little rubber water tower-looking things the nurse slipped into our hospital goodie bag. Who knew babies required a nasal aspirator? By the time she left, we thought we’d earned a PhD in baby care. We followed her routine to the letter. Salem was sleeping through the night by the time he was 5 weeks old and we were well on our way to resuming normalcy…. relatively speaking, of course.

It was Moms on Call that broke my free fall and gave me the confidence to navigate my baby’s growing needs. Their in-home private consults are priceless {so if you’re in the Atlanta area, do yourself a favor or for someone you love…. call and book ’em}. But for those of you that are not in their radiant vicinity, there is still hope.

I am thrilled to announce that Moms on Call has agreed to sponsor a very special one week giveaway for Lady Lullabuy readers. Enter to win a free copy of the Moms on Call Guide to Basic Baby Care which covers just about everything you need to know about fevers, feeding, and first aid for babies age 0-6 months. This book includes an instructional DVD on how to properly swaddle your newborn and bonus…. They’ve even thrown in a Moms on Call blanket especially suited for swaddling your newborn. Once I used their swaddling blanket, I simply could not go back to using store-bought receiving blankets. They are large and square, and… life-changing. There’s something in the water here in Charlotte, as I have four girlfriends that are currently expecting. I can’t think of a better gift than Moms on Call.
