Boutique Product Placement

We are now starting a new section for product placement. We decided to do this because we as a magazine are here to help and support mompreneurs and growing businesses out there, as well as to connect you with moms and families that will appreciate your product! We are now helping small boutiques get a model, an ad, and great exposure, since we have a diverse group of mom fans that follow our magazine.  

How it works:
1) We will give you an address of a model that you will send your product to
2) She or he, depending on what the product is, will get photos taken wearing your product
3) They will mail the photos back to us and we will chose which photos we are able to use

What you are getting out of this:
1) We will email you back over in high resolution, 5 photos that you will be able to use for advertisement
 2) A 1/2 page ad will be used for our fall or winter issue, depending on how soon you decide to work with us. We will add your website and logo to the photo, so please make sure to include that information in your email to us.

In order to participate, the fee is 20.00 dollars and the model must be allowed to keep the product. Let me know if this is something you are interested in so we can get your product out ASAP to the model and they can get the photos back in time.

Family Facts Pregnacy Organizer & Planner Review



Pam Socolow’s Family Facts Pregnancy Organizer & Planner Review!

Who around here is obsessed with organizing and all things organizer related? I for one am, but after getting pregnant my organizing skills decided to take a few turns for the worst. Where did I leave my address book that I spent hours coding? Where’s my pocket calendar? Where did I leave the business card to that store that had the awesome baby formula? I’d be lucky if I found it in a few weeks, and I couldn’t always depend on my husband to remember absolutely everything that I would wind up forgetting. When I received Pam Socolow’s Family Facts Pregnancy Organizer & Planner, I couldn’t stop worrying about losing it. After a few days of using it, I discovered (to my great satisfaction) that my days of brain-forgetting and item misplacement will probably forever remain if I’m pregnant, but at least this thing will back me up.
The number one advantage that the Family Facts Pregnancy Organizer & Planner has on its side is that it does everything. I have my calendar (bye-bye pocket calendar!), I have my contacts (farewell address book!), and I even have a section for health check-ups, and baby planning (goodbye random scraps of paper!). I adore the checklists available in the calendar section, the little tips randomly spewed at the bottom of pages, the fill-in-yourself calendar, and the bountiful supply of baby resources. I can track my maternity leave, my gift registry and my gift cards, and any baby names I like. I can even create checklists for what I need for myself and the baby, and any types of classes that I want to attend with my newborn! The delivery day bag check off list is great to have as well. This planner is geared towards pregnancy, and because of this it immediately helps my (shall we say, lacking) brain when it comes to staying organized for all things baby. If the vast amount of checklists isn’t great enough, there’s even stickers such as “appointment”, “class”, “week 28” and “hospital tour” that I can pull out and stick onto the calendar so I don’t have to fill it in myself. Helllooo lazy people like myself! Business cards don’t need to fly away anymore, since there’s even little plastic holders in the back for such things.

The Family Facts Pregnancy Organizer & Planner is awesomely packaged, a perfect size (not too big, not too small) and conveniently comes with a pen and pen slot built into it so I don’t have to fish around in my purse anymore. This is one I’ll be recommending to any pregnant lady who loves a good organizer.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com created by WebBizIdeas a Minneapolis SEO and Web Design firm. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

Shop Launch

Mom's Advice Magazine is now launching our Shop, available through our website! This is a great way for moms to make a one-time stop if they are wanting to shop online as they browse Mom's Advice Magazine. This frees up your time and rids you of un-needed trips to other websites for multiple items.

We're now allowing businesses to start listing their items; Mom's Advice Magazine Shop is great because it's convenient and easy to get to. As a business, you will have the option to list as many items as you would like, with unlimited quantity. No more cut-offs or absolutes. Our Shop provides a way for you to market your business, whether it's a smaller home-based business or more expanded.

Our prices are very affordable and fit everyone's budget. Please email us for more info if you are interested in listing your items in our Shop:

Baby Nap Cap Review

video

Adeline wearing the Baby Nap Cap!
Baby Nap Cap: What I love about the Baby Nap Cap, is that it doesn’t look or work like a contraption. When I read about a product and how it says that it promotes napping by blocking out distractions, and instead relax and calms my baby to regulate sleep, I immediately think “Whoa! This sounds awesome! So I just need a few plugs to hook it up and some extra space in that corner for this jig to fit in to… “ Thankfully with the Baby Nap Cap, it’s simple, it’s safe, it’s light, and it's great at blocking out distractions and the light so my baby can nap better.

I don’t have to worry about trying to get my baby to fit into some special baby bed or any of the likes—it’s as simple as putting a hat on their head that has a very soft visor. The Baby Nap Cap is a useful accessory for my baby, and I know I’ll be using it for quite a while. 
Make sure to check out the Baby Nap Cap's website!
