My Pregnancy 2.0 House Party, Sponsored by MommyParties and Pregnancy 2.0


As many of you know, I recently gave birth to our second daughter, Arabella Rose on November 10th.  Even though our other daughter is only 17 months, we still needed to buy baby products for the new arrival.  And, with my first daughter, I didn’t have a baby shower, as we were too busy with work and other commitments.   But, with Arabella, I used my being chosen to host a Pregnancy 2.0 party as an excuse to have a baby shower – not just for me, but, also for 3 other friends who also were expecting another child and didn’t have baby showers the first time around.

So, a couple weeks before I was induced, I had a bunch of my girlfriends and their husbands over to sample and try out some amazing products that were sent to me as part of being a party host.  

Britax sent 1 Baby Carrier and seat extender, 1 B-Agile Stroller, and 1 B-Safe Infant Car Seat
Baby Plus sent along a Baby Plus PreNatal Educational System
Xlear sent along gum, nasal sprays and more, including a brown diaper bag all the guys liked.
Snuggle Buddies sent 2 product samples. 

These top-rated brands for moms were well received by all.  Everyone loved trying out the Britax stroller and car seat.  With my first daughter, I had a Chicco Cortina stroller and car seat and found it to be bulky to navigate and store, and the car seat didn’t last up until 30 lbs. like it was supposed to. But, seeing that I still have the car seat, I was excited to find out that the Britax stroller accommodated this brand and others.  So, I could still use the old car seat in my car, and use the new Britax car seat I was sent in my husband’s car.  And, when we were traveling, I could through the Britax stroller in either truck and it wouldn’t take up much space.


I don’t know any parent with a young child, who doesn’t think a baby carrier is a necessity.  I use it around the house with Arabella, and my husband wears it when we go out, so we are not lugging around two kids.  And, now that Savannah loves to run and explore, it is important that we have free hands to run and get her if needed.

For the party/baby shower, we all played the usual baby shower games, ate great sweet and treats that each of us moms were craving and just bonded over being new moms again.  It was a great time, and I was so happy to have been chosen by MommyParties and Pregnancy 2.0 to host this party with friends, and try out some amazing products.  After the party, a few of my girlfriends took a detour to their homes and stopped by Babies R Us to add the Britax stroller and carseat, along with carrier to their registries.  Now, most of us are using the Britax stroller and carseat that we demoed at my baby, and absolutely love it. We are now recommending it to all of our pregnant friends.
