Push Pack Giveaway with Small Batch Studio

***This giveaway is now closed***

I have another great giveaway for you this week! If you're a follower of my blog, chances are it's because you found me because you saw my Hospital Survival Kit on Pinterest or another social site. I could have never guessed how popular that little bag of goodies would be! I made the kit for a friend of mine who was due with her first baby last year. Since she had never had a baby before, my friend didn't know what kind of things she would want or need when she went to the hospital. I thought back to my last two births in the hospital and the things I wished I had brought with me, and that became my inspiration to make the kit.

Laura, a mother of 3 girls and owner of Small Batch Studio, had the same inspiration that led her to create the Push Pack, a pre-packed bag of wants and needs for laboring mamas. And the best part? The Push Pack is already assembled for you and can be customized in your choice of pink or blue. 



Laura says, There is nothing like preparing for the birth of your first-born...One thing I struggled with was what to bring to the hospital. There are lists out there, long lists. I know people who brought birthing balls, boom boxes, aromatherapy massage oils, as well as the clothes for themselves and their baby. Now, I am not saying that those things are unnecessary, but I don’t know any mom who brings the same stuff when they’re having #2.

The packing list for the subsequent births are much smaller and more practical. The only problem is now that you have a child or children, when do you have time to pack all of your essentials? Do you want to live out of a travel bag for two weeks? I came up with the idea of the Push Pack. I interviewed a bunch of moms asking them what things they were so glad to have or wished they’d had while they were in labor. The push pack includes the items that were mentioned most often. Call it wisdom and experience, peace of mind, and a gift of love all wrapped into one bag.






The Push Pack includes so many fun and useful goodies for new moms, and all bath and body products are either natural or organic. The pack includes:
  • EO® lavender scented shampoo, conditioner and bath gel
  • washcloth
  • make up remover
  • razor and shaving cream lotion
  • deodorant
  • comb and hair bands
  • lip balm
  • toothbrush and toothpaste
  • breast pads
  • maxi pads
  • disposable underwear
  • comfy socks (your choice of pink or blue)
  • playing cards
  • Motherlove Organic Nipple Cream®
  • notepad
  • thank you cards and pen
  • gum
  • Preggie Pop Drops®
  • Bellybar®
  • cup of oatmeal and spoon
What new mother wouldn't love to have all the essentials on hand when their new little one is born? The Push Pack would make a great shower gift for a friend (or keep one on hand for yourself!)

Laura is giving one of my lucky readers a chance to win their very own Push Pack! Each pack comes with the items above in your choice of blue or pink.

  3. I think the Lavender scented Shampoo/Conditioner and shower gel will be my favorite! The first shower after being in labor is the best one ever and the smell of lavender will make it even better.

  12. Lip balm is always a must. It's one of those things that you would never think to add to your bag until you get to the point where you're dying for it.
