Giveaway! ~ MEG Original Baby Gear



i thought that the cookie giveaway i did a couple of months ago was kind of fun, so i thought i'd do another one. i'm really excited about this giveaway because these products are amazing! i received some MEG Original items at samuel's baby shower and they are truly of the best quality.

my friend connie delivered her 3rd baby girl early, at 32 weeks. while in the NICU, connie and her husband were told by the doctor to use only a cloth changing pad with their little 3 pound preemie, since the vinyl ones can harbor a lot of germs. when their search for a cloth changing pad came up fruitless, they decided to design one. another mom whose baby was also in the NICU saw their design, asked to purchase one for her child, and that is how MEG Original began.



MEG Original still sells cloth changing pads, but now they also offer a variety of gorgeous hand made items such as bibs, burp cloths, diaper clutches, security blankets and minky blankets. samuel sleeps with his blue and red minky blanket nearly every night, holding onto it as if for dear life. it is incredibly soft, yet light weight and, though i've washed it over 100 times it looks just as perfect as when it was brand new.



the bibs however, are my favorite. seriously, i tell everyone about these bibs! samuel's has little retro cowboys on his which is, of course, completely adorable. they are lined with a cozy chenille backing and are super absorbant, but the best part about these bibs is that they fasten in the back with a sturdy bronze snap. none of those flimsy baby snaps that are easy for the baby to tear apart, or (even worse) that awful velcro that not only attaches itself to everything in your laundry, but also begins to lose its hold after awhile causing the poor bib to be thrown onto the floor between every bite.

so, MEG Original is generously giving away a $25 gift voucher to one of my readers, which can be used at MEGOriginal.com! all you have to do in order to have a chance at winning, is go to the website, pick which item you like the best, and then comment on this post with your answer. for an additional entry, go to the MEG Original page on facebook and "like" it. then, leave a separate comment on this post, stating that you did so. this contest will run until midnight on friday, june 18th after which i will pick a winner via random.org.

good luck!

I really like the Lavender and Green Minky Dot Blanket. It's fun to see Coranelle finally cuddling with a blanket!

i'd like to have them all. i wonder why i've never seen minky blankets in adult size? i'd LOVE one! :)
difficult choice to narrow down to one favorite, but I'd go with #307 Blue Lolli Dot Blanket as my top choice.

Very cool product! What wouldn't I love? But I think I would first want to try a bib, because I cannot keep a bib on my boy AT ALL!

I love the Safari Animals Stroller Blanket.

Heather said...

What a fun giveaway ... and an AWESOME company. Seriously, I want it all. Since I have to pick though, the green dot security blanket is my favorite. For a boy who has to sleep with a lovey tuckey around the thumb in the mouth, this looks perfect ;)

Adele said...

I would have to agree with Kari about the lavender minky blanket...We had Coranelle at our house Friday night. She seems to finally have a favorite blanket...I did go to the MEG site and liked it..on Facebook... Thanks for posting all this...

Julie said...

I like all of it, very cute and very soft looking products. I think though that I would have to say my favorite is the changing pad. I always think the ones that come with diaper bags seem like they dont get all the germs off even after wiping them down. Hence when I change a diaper at the store I just do it on my lap.

I also liked them on FB.
