Freebies from the Crib: Tender Cargo

May's freebie comes from a frequent visitor and commentor around these here blogs, cchrissyy. Once the dust settled from working to put her husband through school (using ebay sales a half.com bookstore and secret shopping) and at the same time having three children very close together, this natural born momtreprenuer and baby product expert decided to start Tender Cargo, a web-based store filled with hand-picked pregnancy, baby, and child related products.

With three children, cchrissyy has had her share of infant shoes that wear out too fast, carriers and slings that hurt her back or were outgrown too fast to be worth what she paid. She also has a passionate dislike for noisy plastic toys covered with media characters (amen sister!). Put all those things together, and you get a site filled with quality products (and many natural products) that will last for baby #2 and #3.
I especially like the way she shares her knowledge of the products with her customers like her sling FAQs page, or the description of the leather shoes she carries here. BTW, these little shoes just make my heart melt. And she has a great selection of wooden toys and puzzles. I know my girls would love this little "paperdoll" puzzle and it's priced right at less than $5.

Another product I love is the Belly Hugger. I think it was originally designed to be worn while breastfeeding so your stomach (or g's) are not exposed without having to wear a special nursing shirt or a blanket. But, these bands are also great during pregnancy to extend the wear of too small pants (covers an undone top button) or too short top (adds length like a "layer" without having to actually wear another layer). Good stuff. I could go on and on. Tender Cargo is filled with good stuff around every corner. Go on over and check it out for yourself.

Okay, now I guess I will get to the fantastic freebie from cchrissyy at Tender Cargo. She has to graciously put up for grabs a fabulous Zolowear Baby Pouch in your choice of print. I don't know how you will choose! The Jetson dot is so cute, the Metro black is perfectly unisex and the Sable hemp is so awesomely sustainable. If you are asking yourself "How will I use a baby pouch?", don't worry! The pouch also comes with an inspirational and instructional DVD (and you can also go read her aforementioned pouch and sling FAQ's page). I love these types of carriers because you can use them longer (and more comfortably) than a traditional frontpack.

And remember, if you personally don't have a need for this freebie, please pass the info along to someone who does! Or, go ahead and put your name into the hat and save the pouch for an amazing baby shower gift!
