Baby and You - A New Facebook Destination for Moms and Dads Alike

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

While at home on mat leave with my first-born, I often found myself alone with my baby girl and marveling at all the wonderful joys a baby can bring into your life. I also had a lot of questions and concerns as well as some really difficult experiences as a new mother. Living far from my parents, even though they are only an hour away, was very difficult for me, not to mention the move to the great big city of Toronto. All I longed for was a sense of belonging. It's pretty much the reason why I started this blog - to share moments of motherhood and to connect with other moms. And for the longest while, I felt that mine was just another blog floating around in cyberspace. I really wish that, back then, I could have also shared my experiences and questions in an online forum dedicated to forging a community of parents. A community like Baby and You.

Baby and You is a Facebook page that was "created for moms, dads and anyone else with babies, infants and children in their lives who want to join the conversation" and even share pictures of their little ones. It's great that it is on Facebook because I know a lot of people who use Facebook regularly. It becomes a convenient spot to check in with your newest Baby and You friends. You can also get to know featured Canadian Mom bloggers, Jody of Mommy Moment dedicated to all things Mom, and Lisa from Growing Your Baby, focusing on all things baby. Jody recently shared her daily routine (after having kids) on the Baby and You Facebook page and how her and her husband take turns and share all the responsibilities. Lisa offers three tips on how to adjust to bringing home baby number two.

Baby and You also offers savings and promotions for grocery stores such as Loblaws, Valu-Mart and Zehrs. They have recently added a really cool contest where you can win $500 worth of Joe Fresh gift cards or one of five $100 Joe Fresh gift cards. And with Joe Fresh prices, you know $100 can go a long way. Be sure to check out the Contest tab located under the profile picture to find out how you can win. The contest closes on October 13, 2011.

Disclosure – I am participating in the Baby and You program by Mom Central Canada on behalf of Loblaw Companies. I received compensation as a thank you for my participation. The opinions on this blog are my own.
