Charlie is a luxurious rocking animal with super soft colorful fabric and crinkle in his caterpillar antennae. He is not only super fun for baby but encourages development of sight, touch, fine motor skills, imagination and exercise.

Mamas & Papas Baby Bud (Winner #2)

Dinnertime is for everyone and that includes your holiday meal! Nothing beats getting the whole family round the dinner table, but the littlest sometimes get left out. That’s why Mamas & Papas created the Baby Bud booster seat. With four adjustable, non-slip feet and easy to use harnesses it, fits securely to any kind of chair. So wherever you feel like eating, baby always gets a front row seat – from when you start to cook up until the fun’s over. It even comes with a removable activity tray and seat insert, so it will stay part of your family until baby’s 3 years old.

We don’t have Baby Gizmo videos for either of today’s fabulous products, so we are continuing to feature our classic Baby Gizmo videos because they are just too fun to not watch again.

With the holidays approaching, the family might be spending more time together. Which means that dad might be getting extra baby time. Just as another PSA from Baby Gizmo to demonstrate things that “Dads Should NOT Do with their Baby”. Watch the video and share with any of your new and expecting parent friends! 🙂

Now that we all had a chuckle at dad’s expense, let’s get you entered.

  1. I love being able to be a kid again with my daughter and share so many things with her that I loved growing up (aside from the school all over again! LOL)

  2. The best thing about being a parent is watching my children learn new things and be excited about it! My baby just learned to clap and she thinks it’s the greatest thing ever. My older daughter is excelling at reading and is thrilled to be moving on to chapter books.

  3. I think one of the greatest things about being a parent is, your kids love you no matter how you look or how bad of a day you’re having. It’s the best feeling in the world.

  4. Oh my goodness, this makes me sappy. the love that i feel for this sweet darling child is amazing. and now I get to share that love with TWO coming this spring! I love seeing my daughter grow and hit amazing milestones! so lucky to be part of her life!

  5. One thing I love is all of the sweet snuggles and giggles I get. No matter how bad of a day I’m having, that is always the best pick-me-up, hands down.

  6. I love having the best of my husband and myself in our mini-me’s. 🙂 I love the unconditional love, teaching them what I know and helping them to expand beyond what I know, watching them learn and grow, I love it all!

  7. There’s so much I love about being a parent, I love all of the firsts. And that doesn’t end with childhood, my 20 year old just got her first tattoo!

  8. Excited to become a parent for the first time – a whole new adventure with learning experience… and best of all, someone to love and cherish in a whole new way that I never could imagine to be possible 🙂

  9. So excited for my baby in April. She’s not here yet, but there’s so much I look forward to in being a parent. The first thing I’m looking forward to is seeing how much she has Daddy (who wanted a boy so badly) wrapped around her little finger. Also, I seriously have been dreaming about an adorable rocker like that. It’s the cutest thing, and I am SO getting one for my little girl.

  10. One great thing about being a parent is watching you kid(s) learn something new everyday and seeing them grow as person. I love when my son learns something new.

  11. Greatest thing about being a parent seeing seeing that smile on your childs face. All u need is that smile to make u happy & know what a blessing you have in ur hands.. God Bless!! Happy Holidays!!

  12. The best thing about being a parent is seeing things through my children’s eyes.. my oldest is 12 and my youngest is 1 so I see things so differently than I did 11 yrs ago.. I enjoy the snuggle a little longer I enjoy the moment and try not to rush.

  13. One great thing about being a mom to 5 is getting to relive parts of my childhood by introducing my kids to them. Like the VHS, they are learning that it sucks when you pick a movie that was not rewound after it was last watched. We love playing Mario Kart together on the N64!

  14. Best thing about being a parent is looking at your child sleeping & as soon as they wake up 🙂 it’ smy favorite time because they always wake up with a smile. It lifts up my spirits & makes me stronger as a person every day.

  15. Oh the best thing about being a Nana …. you get to spoil them. You are older, wiser, more patient …. life is less stressful …. there just seems to be a different type of love you can pour out into your little one. Wish mine wasn’t so far away … I could love him every day if he wasn’t 6.5 hours away

  16. Being a grandparent is very special when grandchild just comes and sits in your lap without being encouraged. It’s all about the love!

  18. The best thing about being a new Momma to a one month old is learning and growing together. Enjoying every moment <3 Thank you for opening up the giveaway to Canadians. We would love and appreciate this prize, good luck to all !

  19. unfortunately I am not a parent because my husband has been one of the lucky ones to have cancer and that affected his fertility. IVF will be the way to go for us, so as of now I cannot tell you what I love most about being a parent. I am a nanny and have taken care of the little boy since he was 3 months old. Some parents will say its not the same thing as being a parent and having a child, but I feel it is. I have spent more time with him than his own parents and I have taught him everything he knows. The most rewarding part of my day is when he looks up and me and tells me “i love you.” I imagine the way i feel for this baby is the same as any other parent.

  20. My favourite thing about being a parent is hearing my son’s laughter. He is quite the ham and is always laughing. We are very lucky to have such a happy baby! Every time I hear his sweet giggles and hearty cackles, it warms my heart like nothing else. ❤️

  21. My favorite part of being a parent is hearing my toddler say mommy as she wraps her little arms around my neck! It makes all the frustrating diaper changes of the day fade away!

  22. I think the best thing about being a parent was when our daughters suggested we be Foster Parents. Their reasoning was that we were such wonderful parents, we should share continue and share our love with more children. When they told us that, my husband and I both cried. You always wonder how you’re doing raising your children, and that moment gave us our answer. We knew our children were strong, caring and loving young adults….but that moment said so much more. Being a grandparent is wonderful! We watch as our daughter teaches our granddaughter the same values we taught her. We know she will loving and accepting of all around her.

  23. I love both of these giveaways! My baby boy would adore the caterpillar! The best thing about being a mom is the love I get. No other lovr compares!

  24. I love seeing my daughter grow into the amazing tiny human she is. So smart and funny, I love seeing all her accomplishments. I can’t wait to have my son in a couple months and relive the baby days! 🙂

  25. The best thing about being a parent is just seeing them smile when you enter a room and the wet kisses they give you. I always question whether I’m doing a good job between juggling a full-time job and being a mother and I’m reassured that I am when they smile.

  26. One of the many good things about being a parent are the ugga mugga’s and little snuggles. Having my little one get nose to nose with me and look right in my eye and snuggle me. These are the moments I feel truly present in the moment and truly loved.

  27. I love being a parent seeing them reach every milestone warms up my heart with excitement and puts a big smile on my face

  28. The great thing about being a parent is that I can pass down the things I have learned in life to my children in hopes that they do not make the same mistakes. Love to experience life through the eyes of my child.

  29. I love watching them experience things for the first time. We just took my 18 month old to see Christmas lights. It warmed my heart seeing her face light up.

  30. The best thing about being a Mom, is watching my baby grow and learn new things. Also, the middle of the night when he is wide awake and I just want to sleep but he gives me this big huge smile and cuddles.

  31. Becoming a first time grandma in June, 2016 is, next to having my own, the most exciting feeling. Knowing your son is becoming a dad is fantastic. We are so happy and excited for Brad and Holly. I cried for 2 hours after they told us. Tears of happiness and joy of course.

  32. The best thing about being a parent is the unconditional love you feel each day and the happiness your children bring into your life!

  33. Being a parent is so awesome because instead of having play dolls I have real ones now… it’s fun doing hair, and getting the cutest clothing! The kids are little people with big personalities, and each day I get to learn about who they are. Learning the love and values important to me, as they grow, we all become a stronger family team, and that means a lot!

  34. I think one good thing about being a parent is realizing that this life is bigger than you and that you would do anything to keep your kids safe,

  35. The best thing about being a parent is the feeling of getting a redo on life. We try to give our kids all the things and experiences we never had growing up . 🙂

  36. I love the unconditional love!! Every day, when I get out of work and go to the daycare, my baby boy runs and throws himself in my arms! It’s the best feeling in the entire world!! I love it!!

  37. I would love to do what you do. Any tips on how to become a baby gear expert. I must say I do have some baby gear experience, considering I do have six kids and love to buy all the newest gear. But I would love to review gear before I buy. Thanks for doing what you do.

I am pregnant with my first baby and am a disabled veteran.. I will be a single mom. I am very thankful for the VA and all the resources they provide, but I’m also thankful for these giveaways! My baby will have a lot of hand-me-downs, but I would love to provide him with something very nice and new.. This really is a great opportunity. Thank you!

  42. One of the greatest things about being a parent is unconditional love and you don’t teach them the value of life they teach you..

  43. It might be selfish of me, but I love that I’m never alone. Even if I go shopping without my kids, honestly I’m not thinking about shopping, and always come home with things for them!

  44. One thing I love about being a parent is that I have two mini-me’s that I know I get to corrupt, guilt-free, and let loose upon the world.

  45. The best thing about being a parent is learning about unconditional love and realizing how much my parents truly love me.
