Thursday is the New Friday Giveaway

It’s Thursday!  We couldn’t let this one go by without a giveaway, could we?  So,  it’s time for another Baby Gizmo Thursday is the New Friday Giveaway!!! (The crowd goes wild!)

Yesterday we did a feature called Customize Your Gear and Stand Out!  You read it, right?  If not, here it is.  Go ahead, read it.  We’ll wait. 

Okay, now that we are all up to speed – the Baby Hawk Carriers stood out to you, didn’t they?  As they should – these carriers are awesome!  

BabyHawk’s custom designed Mei Tai baby carriers are for the style conscious parent!  Now, moms can design their own baby carrier to fit their personal style.  From Punk to Florals, Oriental to Geometrics – there is a color and pattern for everyone. 

We did a full review of their Mei Tai Carriers a while back.  If you missed it – here it is.  The Mei Tai carriers are not the only kind of carriers they have.  BabyHawk also has their own version of a soft structure baby carrier. Meet the Oh Snap! BabyHawk:

The Oh Snap! BabyHawk is our answer to the soft structure baby carrier. Triple padded top straps, foam core bottom strap and the ability to custom design makes it the perfect baby carrier for larger babies! Recommended to use with 15lb to 45lb children, it has unique style and adjustability never seen before in a baby carrier. The waist is fully adjustable by webbing and buckles, it makes wearing it a snap! The Oh Snap! baby carrier will fit women from size 0 to 22 and men size small to XXL

So, in celebration of BabyHawk Carriers being so darn cool and giving parents their style back – we are doing a GIVEAWAY!  Today we are choosing TWO winners

#1 Winner:  a gift certificate for a BabyHawk Mei Tai Carrier (retails $80)

  1. Being a plus sized household it’s really hard to find something to fit both me and my husband. This tie on option looks like just the thing! Hope I win.

  2. I would love to win one so I would be able to still live my normal life even after my baby is born. I love the idea that I can have my baby with me and still be able to use my hands for everything else. And not to forget that they are just adorable.

  3. I would love to win for our upcoming baby because it is the coveted carrier to have! The design and styles are gorgeous and super functional!

  4. I would benefit from getting either of these because I have a 2 year old and another due in May. Running after a 2 year old with a newborn baby requires another set of hands. Also, these prints are funky and I could he the most stylish mama in town!

  5. Thanks for the heads up about this giveaway!
    I’d love to have a baby hawk carrier. I’m due with our first in June, and I’ve been pretty overwhelmed with the baby gear options, but I’ve LONG thought that the baby hawk carriers are awesome!

  6. Would love one of these!! We love to go on hikes as a family and have always dreamed of having a nice baby carrier! Would make it a lot easier with our baby 🙂

  7. We are moving closer to a big city and I would love to easily (and frequently) get around with my two kiddos. The debate has been between a Phil & Teds double or just getting a fun carrier like this for my one year old so I can better manage the 4 year old. I’m pretty sure I would fall in love with this carier!

  8. After going the whole time without a carrier for my son, i have decided i can not do that again and I think I should win a carrier for baby number 2!!

  9. I would love a carrier because I travel on planes so much and my daughter hates being in a stroller but would rather be in my arms.

  10. I would love to win this because having a quality baby carrier on you is important for my little guy to be comfy and secure while I am trying to chase his big 4 yr old sister and 3 year old brother over and under, up and down obstacles at the park! 🙂

  11. I would love to have one of these carriers for my little girl this spring & summer! She will be turning one and we’re looking forward to going to the childrens museum and zoo and I have hoping to get a carrier but can’t afford a new one and haven’t found one in my price range used. This would be perfect for us!

  12. this would be so good to have i have a 4 year old and a 3 month old it would really come in handy when taking the kids out to the park or taking my 4 year old to tee ball games i would love to have this

  13. I would love to win a BabyHawk carrier! My daughter is getting to the point where she doesn’t want to be in the stroller anymore when we are out. She just wants to be held! A BabyHawk would be a life (and arm!) saver! 🙂

  14. I am pregnant with my first child and I would really love one of these carriers! My boyfriend and I are struggling with getting baby stuff so this would be MUCH appreciated!

  15. i’d love to win a BabyHawk because i’m half-asian and i don’t own a mei tai carrier yet. just kidding! honestly, i think BabyHawk is a great brand and this would be a chance for me to own one of their gorgeous, yet comfortable carriers to use with my very cuddly 14 month old son.

  16. I’m pregnant with my third and my very overused Ergo is no longer cutting it with my 16 month old. Would love to win one of these!

  17. I absolutely love these carriers! I’m crazy about the beautiful fabrics they carry and after having two kids and a few failed baby carriers, I’m convinced the Baby Hawk is the answer to my woes!

  18. I have 24 days until I am the mom of 2 under 2. I figure wearing the wee one will be my saving grace as I chase my 19 mth old and unsuccessfully try to keep himoff the dining room table.

  19. 3.5 year old a 2 year old and a baby due in the nest 8 weeks! I could really use the retail therapy and a chance at getting things done!

  20. I’ve been wanting a BabyHawk since I discovered babywearing. I love their fabrics and they look so comfy. My girls love getting rides on my back.

  21. This carrier would be great for me and my sister to use with my new nephew. here’s hoping you pick us!! 🙂

  22. I just had my first baby in December and though I’m turning 28 in a few days I feel more like 58…I need some mommy style!! 🙂

  23. Between a two month old and a 4 yr old I would LOVE to have at least one hand free! I’ve been eyeing one of these for a while – very cute!!!

  24. Oh, I have heard amazing things about baby hawk! I would love one. I love the designs and I think it would really support my back when I carry my almost 11 month old!

  25. wow i don’t have a baby carrier 🙁 don’t trust the cheap brands and Hubby is looking for work right now (just got out of the Navy)! this would be great so I could hold my teething baby while getting things done! great offer! 🙂

  26. My baby constantly clings onto me so I used to put him on in the mobywrap. We were on the plane going to CA and I left the darn thing on the plane due to a screaming baby.

  27. I’d love to win this because there are SO many carriers on the market. It’s hard to pick! Baby Hawk stands out because it looks comfortable an easy to use AND comes in fun prints!

  28. I have been on their site regularly lately trying to decide which material to choose! This would be awesome for me to win because I was going to buy one anyway!

  29. I have a ten month old who loves to crawl everywhere. She’s a little explorer. I miss those days when she was just a few weeks old and would just stare at me for hours and stay right in my lap with NO fuss. I would love to win the Baby Hawk Carrier because not only is it stylish and looks comfortable, but it would allow my BOO-PA to be close to me for a little while longer.

  30. I always wanted a MeiTai–they look easy and comfortable. I often find it a lot easier to wear a baby for quick errands rather than struggle with a stroller.

  31. I love babywearing but have never tried Baby Hawk. I thought they looked great when reading your customs feature yesterday!

  32. Would love to win ! Met these great people at ABC Expo in Vegas. They are pretty cool and very inspiring. With two active boys (4 & 2) and another baby on the way – I need a fresh update in baby wearing! Thanks!

  33. This grandma babysits 2 grandchildren 22 months and 3 months of age 5 days a week so it would be so nice to have a carrier and have my hands free !!

  34. I have a baby on the way and a very active toddler. This would come in handy and make a busy Mom’s life a little bit easier!

  35. I would love to win this because as much as I love babywearing, I really don’t like that most commercial carriers look the same. The Baby Hawk has style!

  36. We love carriers however we haven’t had a chance to try a Baby Hawk and now that we have two little ones this would be so handy to have!

  37. I really could use the baby hawk carrier!! I have a 3 yr old and a 6 month old. My little 6 month guy wants to be held all the time and this would allow me to hold him while doing other things. Also, since its getting warm outside, going to the park is going to be challenging because my 3 yr old often needs help and having my hands free would be very important. Please pick me. It would be used a lot 🙂

  38. To be able to have my hands free to read a book to my 1 1/2 year old while holding my huge 4 month old….. nice! OR…. Hold my 1 1/2 year old while BF/reading to my 4 mo. old. Life just got snugglier and easier thinking of this! SNAP!

  39. I would love to have a Baby Hawk for my baby due in August! I’ve been loving this kind of baby carrier for awhile now.

  40. Oh my goodness!! I’ve been looking into these for the last week. I’m tired of the wrap carrier and don’t like the other front carrier I have. The baby hawk looks like a perfect fit for my wearing style! My new stay at home mom status will give me a lot more time to wear my little girl 🙂

  41. I would love this carrier for my baby would be a great way to get more things done around the house and take the little one on walks.

  42. This would be perfect for my wife! Im in the military and while i am gone this would be a huge life saver for her! She could actually keep up with our 3yr old, 2 yr old and soon to come baby.

  43. A baby carrier makes life so much easier. I have 2 friends that have baby showers coming up and I really think the carrier was one of the best present I got and would therefore would love to give a quality one.

  44. I have some damaged disc’s in my back and with our first baby on the way (due in July!)I have been looking into all the carriers for one that would be supportive and still cute and the Babyhawk ones look like they could fit the bill! Would love to try one out!

  45. I have a baby bjorn air carrier … love it but a downside .. can’t wear it backwards. Makes hiking and trail walks a little difficult sometime with our daughter. This would surley be a great addition to our outdoor gear! 🙂

  46. With three kids under five, I need a great, easy, and chic way to have some hands free, especially in a parking lot! This would be amazing to have for my everyday crazy, fun life:)

  47. I have a new baby and a 2 year old at home and the carrier would be a great way to get more things done around the house.

  48. With an infant and a toddler .. one of them has to be carried in order to make a sane trip to the playground or the store 🙂 oh we really really need one of these 🙂

  49. I would love one of these! My 5 month old loves to be snuggled and a carrier would free up my hands to hold on to my 3 year old daughter!

  50. i have the baby bjorn with the lumbar support and love it! my son loves being carried around in it facing the world. the only drawback of the baby bjorn is that i cannot wear it backpack-style. i love that the baby hawk can be worn both in the front and on the back. and the designs are customizable to boot! wowie! a winner in my books!

  51. I would LOVE to win one of these carriers!
    I absolutely adore the fact that I can customize it to ME!!!
    I have a very active three-year old and a five month old. A carrier would help A TON!!!

  52. Woooo! I totally need one for our new baby (13 days old today!) so I can have my hands free to do other things, like the awful dishes and laundry! Also, it would be nice for Daddy to look cool while holding baby!

  53. I have a six month old and I run a free loan society of baby carriers for the new moms in our neighborhood.
    At the moment I have only BabyBjorns in stock and would love to offer the moms more choices.
    I am sure the moms would be thrilled to have such a stylish choice that also gives them the opportunity to carry their babies longer than the BabyBjorn affords them.
    Thanks for the Giveaway.

  54. My niece really needs a carrier because her mom has to chase after her big brother. It would be much easier with a carrier.

  55. i would love to win this carrier. My husband is Mr. Mom so when i’m home i still have to get stuff done. I would love to be able to carry my newborn around with me and keep her close!

  56. I have very spoiled 9 month old that is only happy when being held…. this would really make getting things done, and t ball season with my 5 year old much easier.

  57. This would be perfect for me! It would be so great to look cute and stylish while carrying my new baby (due in a couple months), while chasing after my one year old and three year old! I love it!

  58. This would be awesome to win! We are expecting our next baby very soon and I love the Baby Hawk carriers! I love all the cool designs!

  59. Expecting #2 any day now (seriously, today could be the day)… a Baby Hawk Mei Tai or the Oh Snap would make handling 2 kids so much easier!

  60. We are having our first child in May and would love to have a carrier for the little guy! These look much better then the others we have looked at.

  61. This would be great because I LOVE taking my son everywhere with me and with the warmer weather I want to get out walking some of the wonderful trails we have in our area. A nice comfy Baby Hawk would be perfect!

  62. I NEED to win one of these carriers! 🙂 I have a four year old, a two year old and I am going to be delivering our third sometime this weekend. Trust me, I’m going to need it! 🙂

  63. I’d love a Mei Tai carrier! We do a lot of Geocaching & are trying to figure our how we can continue when our little one is born in June. A carrier like this would make that easy.

  64. I should win the carrier for the simple fact thats is awesome. Its trendy and efficient, frankly what more can you ask for as a mom. Plus as a Mom of two it makes my life easier, I can carry my baby and have the hands to play and help my three year old. WOW! Love it!

  65. I have a 3 year old, a almost 2 year old and am due with our third in a couple months and I am desperate for a good baby carrier that doesnt kill your back!! Would love to win this!! 🙂

  66. With a new baby on the way, we will have two under two. Having a carrier for the new baby will be great so I can hold the baby and play with it’s brother at the same time.

  67. I have been researching baby carriers for a while now! BabyHawk so far has been my favorite! I want one soooo bad! I know my 3month old will love the bonding time it will provide us 😉
    I <3 BABYGIZMO! I am a loyal fan!

  68. Great giveaway!! This would be great to stick the little guy in when I have to take the dog out instead of lugging out the stroller. Extra plus for airport trips when visiting grandparents.

  69. i would LOVE one of these. i have been wanting one for the longest time. it would make carrying my son so much easier as it distributes his weight and leaves me hands free!

  70. I have a carrier from my first child that doesnt seem to be working so well for my second (6 months now). This carrier looks great and is a completely different style from my old school one. Would LOVE to win it!

  71. I’m so excited! I love the Baby Hawk carrier and always wanted to buy it but I already have two other carriers and wasn’t going to splurge, but if I could win it…

  72. I would LOVE to win this carrier! My “little” one is getting not so little, so a carrier I can easily throw on my back would be GREAT!

  73. I have two boys. A 3 year old and a 4 month old. We’re a military family living in Korea and we’ll be leaving here soon. Our 3 year old doesn’t like strollers and he prefers to walk. The 4 month old would be so easy to carry on to the flight rather than having to lug a stroller with our luggage through at least 2 airports. Not to mention all around Korea. There’s not an abundance of space to run around with strollers here.

  74. Would love to win one of these. Warmer weather is right around the corner and some new and gorgeous gear would be wonderful!

  75. I want one of these kinds of carriers but can’t quite bring myself to spend the money and it would come in super handy this summer.

  76. I would looooove to win! I actaully have an older style baby hawk that I just love except for one thing. I need one of the toddler ones with a soft headrest on it. My daughter was sick last week so I was carrying her around in ours and her head would flop around because there was no support. These are awesome! That and I realized that it is way easier to shop with two toddlers when one is on your back!

  77. We are (God willing!) 3 months away from adopting our baby girl form India. I am hoping using a carrier will facilitate the bonding process and keep my hands free!


  79. I’ve been wanting to get one of these types of carriers but haven’t yet. It would be great for walks with my 1 year old son this spring and summer.

  80. This would be perfect. I just had a baby in January and I have a 3 year old! So when I am chasing my 3 year old around this summer I don’t have to worry about a stroller. I can just carry the baby and chase the 3 year old!! This would be perfect! Plus they are so cute and wonderful!
