Wee Rock Eco-Friendly Rocker Giveaway


I love rocking horses. They are the perfect addition to a nursery! There is something so classic and timeless about a rocking horse. They are an iconic symbol of childhood that people of all generations can relate to. Whether it’s sitting in a nursery or getting plenty of use in the playroom, a rocking horse can add a certain esthetic to the room. Wee Rock Toy Co. has put a new spin on the classic rocking horse by making them sustainably in a convenient new design.

Catherine O’Sullivan and Michael Galea, founders of Wee Rock Toy Co., used their architectural training to create a classic rocking horse that has only six pieces, allowing them to be shipped flat and assembled with no tools, no glue and no hardware!

These unique rockers are crafted from bamboo plywood – an ultra high quality, renewable and child-safe material. Unlike most plywood, the bamboo plywood used by Wee Rock Toy Co. uses a soy-based adhesive that emits zero VOCs and is a responsibly sourced renewable material. The bamboo parts are simply finished with a food-grade butcher-block conditioner. A huge bonus – all of these toys are cut, finished and packaged in the United States!

In addition to being sustainably made in the USA, the Wee Rock Toy Co. rockers are adorable, and currently available in five designs, including a classic horse, gorilla, elephant, rhino and giraffe. See the designs here.


Each of these five designs has the same critical dimensions. The seat is 13" off the ground and the assembled toy is approximately 13" W x 33" L – making the rockers ideal for kids from ages 18-48 months. If you’ve been looking for the perfect rocker for your little one, or need a unique baby shower gift idea, be sure to check out Wee Rock Toy Co! This is the perfect heirloom quality rocker that any child would absolutely love to have!

The Giveaway

I’m excited to share that one lucky reader will win the Wee Rock Toy Co. rocker of their choice ($300 value)! What is your favorite design of the 5?

This giveaway is open to the lower 48 US states only, ages 18+ and runs through February 7, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EST. To enter, simply complete the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique Review & Giveaway!

Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique is "a unique shop offering natural baby products designed to make your life a little sweeter and the world a little greener." Sweetbottoms is a wonderful shop that is stocked with cloth diapers and accessories, baby carriers and a  great variety of natural products and necessities for mama, baby and the whole family. On top of the awesome selection of goodies, everything ships for free! At Sweetbottoms, they have put so much thought into the items that they carry - each item has truly been chosen with care. Also, when you shop at Sweetbottoms, you are supporting a mom owned and operated company!

Sweetbottoms was so kind to send me a new Clover newborn organic fitted cloth diaper with lime stitching. I had never heard of Clover Diapers before, so when I received the diaper, I looked into what made them special. These fitted diapers are made in the USA  from US milled organic cotton fleece. Doesn't that just sound like the perfect fabric to wrap your little one up in!?! There are soft little gussets at the legs and at the back to keep that runny newborn poo in. The diaper has a snap closure, plus a snap down option for when the umbilical cord is healing. The diaper also comes with a soaker that is made out of heavy weight organic cotton fleece and it is easy to lay in in the center of the diaper before you wrap it around baby.

Little Riley was born at 8lbs 15oz (definitely bigger than I thought he would be!) and he lost his umbilical cord stump at 5 days. The sizing for the Clover newborn diaper states that it should fit babies that are between 5-12 lbs. This diaper fit Riley right away and at a month old now, he is around 10lbs and this fitted diaper still fits him really well, with room to spare. My little boys seem to be long and thin, rather than chunky monkeys, but the leg gussets are flexible and there are enough snaps that this would fit a bigger baby.

I absolutely love using this diaper! It is my go-to fitted diaper for night times and when we go out and about. It is soft and a very trim fitted diaper. Even though it is trim, it is super, super absorbent! I have never had a leak with this diaper and it has also contained it's fair share of poop-splosions. Hubby has started calling them "blow-ins" rather than blow-outs, since nothing escapes. Hahaha... 

I mostly use Bummis Super Whisper Wraps in the newborn size with this fitted, but I have also used a Blueberry Mini Coverall and a size 1 Weehugger diaper cover with the Clover diaper and they fit over it perfectly.    

Overall, I love the Clover newborn fitted diaper! I would highly recommend this fitted to anyone with a newborn or a newborn on the way. It is perfect for nights or trips in the car or even if you are just hanging out at home gazing into your little ones eyes. I actually wish this diaper came in bigger sizes so I could get the next size up for Riley.

Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique is a wonderful shop that values excellence in customer service for their customers. They "believe in natural living, natural parenting, and going green!" The goal at Sweetbottoms is to help give your little ones a natural start in life. They are such a fabulous resource to parents and they are here to help in your journey toward greener living! I couldn't be happier with my Clover diaper and I definitely recommend Sweetbottoms as a wonderful place to shop for cloth diapers and more!
