Honestbaby with Giveaway **Closed**

Honestbaby was founded by a mom frustrated with the myth of perfect parenting. From the moment a new mother holds her baby, she’s bombarded with the “right” and “wrong” way to parent; breastfeeding, ferberizing, nipple confusion, the family bed, Baby Einstein, organic food, pacifiers…everyone has an opinion. Whether it’s other new moms, family, friends, or self-proclaimed parenting experts, they push their views and make us doubt our ability as parents. Desperate for answers and prone to guilt, we believe everything we’re told. Until we realize…there is no “right” way to raise a child and few women can live up to those super mom expectations anyway.

Honestbaby is a place where it’s okay to tell your real stories, the good and the bad, without being judged. Where parents can admit they’re just giving it their best shot. Because truly that’s all that we can really do.

It’s time to bring parenting back to where it belongs – humorous, light, enjoyable and above all realistic. It’s time for all parents to celebrate imperfect parenting.





We got to try out the Honestbaby tee in 12-18 months, I am not a performing monkey! I love it. Yellow isn't a color I would normally choose for my son but it looked great on him. And I was very nervous about a size 12-18 month tee because he is 18 months. I put the shirt on him before I washed it just in case it shrunk and didn't fit him anymore but it was great! If it shrunk at all you can't tell. I washed on cold and even fully dried it in the dryer. I don't have time to hang the kids clothes to dry. This shirt gets a lot of complements and I just love it.

Honestbaby also has a selection of Melissa and Doug toys. If you haven't heard of Melissa and Doug check out there stuff on Honestbaby. They have some great products!

My kids arn't great sleepers, and we've tried everything, so they sleep with us sometimes, and people have a lot to say about this!. It used to get to me and make me feel bad, but then i realized that ya have to do what ya have to do. Also i say "are you there at 2 am ?, because at 2 am i like to get sleep so if that means they sleep with me so be it!. I know it won't be forever .. soo who cares ..i don't !!

I love the pink on brown "I only eat carbs" shirt.
When my oldest was little we were dealing with a lot of control issues and she had started waking up a lot during the night and screaming to get up. One night she woke up screaming for me as usual, I tried to ignore her and let her fall back to sleep. Suddenly the screaming turned to a funny gagging sound. I ran into her room to find vomit all over her bed and herself. I stayed up the rest of the night taking care of my poor sick vomiting baby. What a mean mommy. :(

My son is almost two, and he's not walking yet. For him, it's perfectly normal, because he is a Little Person and he will probably walk sometime around his second birthday. But people always ask if he's walking yet when they meet him! So I like the "I'll walk when I'm good and ready!" short sleeve t-shirt in red with a denim bubble, size 2T.

I would choose the: "I am my Mom's job" in light blue with purple....

Everyone has an opinion about raising your baby and my family is no exception. My MIL raised six kids with the air of a Seargent Major..when kara hit 3 months old I was told to start her on cereal, that it would be okay since her kids all had been fed pablum from about 2 months of age. Well that was 35 years ago and we know better now. So against mt better judgement, we bought a box of rice cereal and started giving Kara a tea spoon each noght for a few nights. On the third night, my daughter started to cry pitifully because she has so much gas...after about 2 hours of burping and tummy massage I was rewarded with a huge diaper of brown goo and a large amount of vomit down my shirt and all over her. Needless to say, I threw the box of crappy rice cereal away and told my Hubby no more stupid advice from family, we were going to listen to our daughter, she would let us know when she was ready to try rice cereal... now when my family starts in about pablum and other stuff, I just smile sweetly and laugh in my head.

I would love the Don't Expect a Lot.I'm Big For My Age Pink Patch on Red Tee in size 6T for my 3 year old granddaughter. Perfect.
I was getting ready to take my oldest daughter to a mother daughter camp weekend. We were packing and all of a sudden we noticed my youngest wasn't there. I started to panic and was screaming her name and we were looking everywhere for her. All of a sudden my other daughter came running to me and said she found her sister,she was on her bed sound asleep. That was scary and I never turned my back on any of my kids again busy or not. Thank you!

i would chose the shirt that says i wouldnt expect much i am big for my age.. a red one with a black bubble.. in a size 2t.

My imperfect parenting story. Lets see, I start my children on rice cereal at the age of 6 weeks, so that they would sleep through the night better.

Worked with my first and gave my second a belly ache

my imperfect mommy story. my son ate fast food before his first birthday. i know i swore he would never eat that crap, but during a few nights of long commutes, we ended up at the drive-thru.

I would get "Not sleeping through the night" in pink!
I am sick of people asking if DD is!
My bad parenting moment: DD was up crying one night as usual and we thought it was her teeth, she sleeps with us so I just nursed her back to sleep but she was up quite a bit more then normal. When we woke up we found that she had pooped in the middle of the night (She NEVER does that!) and clearly that is why she was so upset!
I felt soooo terrible and she had a bit of a bum rash for the day :(

I would get "sharing is over-rated" pink patch on olive tee.

when my twins were at the eating puree stage, their hands were everywhere - constantly grabbing and knocking the spoon. When I was in a hurry to get out and they were already dressed, I sometimes pinned their arms down by their sides with the tray so that they couldn't make a big mess. I just couldn't push both their hands out of the way and feed them both at the same time. I always felt like a rotten mommy, but they've turned out ok so far!
