Organic Mei Tai Giveaway!

After such nice warm weather, it's suddenly cold and rainy here in East Texas. As I sat here sipping my yummy Mother's Milk Tea (with added Radiance C and Orange Essential Oil to keep myself and my sweet nurslings healthy!), I decided I needed a little extra something to warm me up. ;)

So to bring back that spring mood... is giving away an Organic Mei Tai!!

  1. Hi Katherine,

    I'm on your facebook group and also your facebook friend, so that's how I heard about the contest. I am preparing my garden soil and will be planting various vegetables, including cucumbers, tomoatoes, radishes and lettuces. I'd plant corn but my plot has a shady side.

    BTW, I have been bringing my bag to the store, and avoiding plastic bags :-) So easy to do with a compact whole foods bag.

  2. Hi Katherine,
    I am a facebook friend as well. My favorite babywearing story:
    I won 1st place in the Ice Cream crank off at the State Fair of TX wearing my 2nd son. This was about 3 years ago.

    have a great day,

  3. Hi Katherine,

    My favorite babywearing story is when I was wearing my son, that was 4 months old at the time, while at the Detroit Zoo with my husband and father-in-law. I had so many people stairing at me. I told my hubby that I felt like I was on exhibit at the zoo more than the animals were! :o) He just laughed. Then I had a mother with a toddler and an infant in a double stroller come up to me and say, "Your baby looks so happy, and I wish I could wear my baby. I think it would be so nice and easier." I assured her that she could baby wear and we chatted for awhile. It was a great experience and I felt awesome to be an inspiration to another mother!

    We LOVE the outdoors, so I will be hiking where ever I can. I don't have any places in particular in mind right now, I'd love some suggestions of places that you have enjoyed! :o)

    For our garden, we are expanding our garden this year. We will have tomatoes, cucumbers, red bell peppers, garlic, onion, rosemary, thyme, zucchini, kale, strawberries, snap peas, watermellon, cantalope, and a lot of other things that we are adding to our list right now!

    I found out about your contest from you, because I am a facebook friend, crunchy bunch fan, and a facebook networked blogs crunchy bunch blog follower, and an email subscriber.

    I have been trying for over an hour to get your button on my blog at, but have not been successful yet, I will keep working on it. I did blog about your contest though!

    And emailed a bunch of friends about it!

    I hope, hope, hope, that I win. I was just thinking to myself the other day that I would LOVE to have a mei tai, and organic is perfect, because I will be starting to watch a few children from my home in May and could definitely use the Mei Tai, especially since I think that I might be pregnant, don't know 100% for sure yet, I sure hope so though. ;o)

    Peace and Blessings,

  4. Hey Kathy,
    I heard about the giveaway from you on DFW Area moms ;p I have been searching high and low for the past month trying to find an affordable mei tai that my hubby would let me buy but he is being much better with our budget than I am. o well. As soon as daddy gets home today, we are off to find some strawberry plants. What I really want to accomplish this weekend is a compost pile. I am trying to decide whether or not to do worms. Anywho I blogged about the giveaway, I emailed three friends, signed up for the newsletter and became a fan on facebook. I can't get a button on my blog either. Do you have a script you can give us? I am not very tech inclined. My blog is

  5. HI Kathy!
    I also heard about your giveaway from DAM. I don't really have one favorite babywearing story. I have so many people come up to me everytime I wear my little one. I love sharing my experiences with them. I didn't wear my first two, but love it. I don't know what I would do without it. I also became a friend on Facebook.

  6. I want one :) I also became your fan :)

  7. I heard about your give away from DAM. I have 10 month old twins, and I have found that after experimenting with a lot of different carriers, the Mei Tei is my fave. I would love another!


    Here is my blog where I brag about needing this!!

  9. Wohoo what a great contest! My son loves to be worn. :) We wore him for a week straight last summer through the rainforest and along the beautiful beaches of Puerto Rico. He was a champ and loved every minute, and it made the trip so much easier for us!

  10. Yea! Thank you for promoting babywearing!!! I'm excited about the giveaway. I wear my sweet little 6 month old in a both a ring sling & moby-like wraparound. Winning this would be fantastic.

    I don't know everything there is to know but, I teach everyone I know about babywearing. I even have my friends wear my daughter when we are out shopping.

    A good friend of mine is due in July with a baby boy. When throwing her shower, I am actually going to teach the group about baby wearing as well. I figure it's a great focus. I am continuously amazed that so many people have never seen, let alone heard of, using slings.

    Being a nurse & a new Mama, I am impressed with the ease & comfort of wearing my little one. She is more content, healthy, happy, alert & aware.
    Hope you have a good night
    Off to sleep,

  11. Hey I am so excited about this contest. I sent a lot of e-mails. I posted your button and a blog on And signed up for your newsletter.
    Good Luck everyone!!

  14. I posted your button on my Blog

  15. I blogged about this

  16. Just today a friend asked what must-have item she should be giving at baby showers, and my sister-in-law and I both thought of baby-wearing gear.... I suspect my daughter is getting big for a mei tai, but I would love to give it to my niece if I win....

  17. Hello!

    I randomly found you on the internet as I was searching for a Mei Tai giveaway :)

    Thanks! Mikayla
