Quick Guide Giveaway

***This giveaway is now closed***

When my daughter was born 3 years ago, I lay in my hospital bed holding my new little baby with a swarm of questions buzzing through my head. How often do I change her? What do I do if she's fussy and won't calm down? What if she gets a fever? It was exhausting trying to figure out all of the "what if's" while functioning on very little sleep. As a new mom, I wanted to be the best one I could, but I still had so much to learn. 

Three years and two kids later, I can say I made it through babyhood and can answer most baby questions like a seasoned vet. But I venture to say most new mom's feel just as I did - excited but a little scared and full of a lot of questions. Luckily for all of us, Lianne, a mother of four, answered all of those questions for us an compiled them in a postcard-sized booklet for easy reference. 

Lianne's Quick Guide booklet is a comprehensive guide for parents of children ages 0-6 months old. It covers all of the basics from newborn care to basic development questions and everything in between. The booklet is small, so it's easy to pack in a hospital bag or purse, and would make a great gift for any new parent (I sure wish I had one when I had my daughter!)

Lianne has offered to give away one of her quick guides to one of my readers (even all of my wonderful international readers :) so that you can keep it for your own reference, or maybe gift it to a friend (hello baby shower!)

To enter, just do one (or both) of the following:
1. Tell me why you would like a Quick Guide
2. Give me one question or subject that you would like to know more about

Please make sure you leave your email address in your comment if it's not linked to your profile so I can contact you if you win! The giveaway will be opened until midnight on June 28th CST, and the winner will be announced here the next day.

And, even if you don't win, Lianne is selling her book in paperback or PDF form on her website for only $7.95, so go grab a copy!


  1. I have several friends who are expecting for the first time who I think would really like this book and find it useful.

    I really enjoy your blog; found you on pinterest!

  2. I am expecting my first little bundle this December and would love to hear more about your own thought and experiences!

    It is so hard to find books, blogs, etc. from writers who don't get caught up in medical language that is so hard to understand, so I would just love to see more basic topics laid out in easy to understand words.

    Thanks! schmucac@grace.edu

  3. My sister-in-law is having her first baby in July!! I'm sure she'd enjoy it and find it super helpful while figuring out everything baby related :)

  4. I would like a copy of this because I will be a first time mom come November! I am scared but excited and trying to and trying to learn as much as possible before then :)

    I would like more information on breast feeding and what to do when you have a sick baby?

    Thanks Jenn

  7. I would love to know more about how to get back in shape and be a good wife/life balance once a baby comes.

  8. i would love to have this book as I will be a first time mommy in September. It seems like it would be the perfect go-to-guide for those months after we first bring baby girl home.

    There are a lot of things I'd like to know more about. Breastfeeding, as mentioned previously by others, is definitely one. Another thing I've asked several people, but can't seem to get a straight forward answer (probably because it's not an easy question) is outside of the big stuff, what are some products/items that you absolutely recommend and couldn't live without after having your little one's? are there things you got home and wish you had, but didnt? and in the same respect, are there things you wish you would have done to prep for baby that you didn't realize would need done until after you got them home??

    thanks again. love your blog! I have found so many great ideas in here.



Thanks for all of your wonderful comments! I try to respond to each of them through email so please make sure you leave an email address or have your profile set up to include your email address if you want me to respond :)
