The NuRoo Baby Collection Giveaway!

Let's chat a little about the fourth trimester, shall we mommas? Those first three months of your baby's life are all about three things: lots of feeding, lots of holding, and lots of love. Sounds simple, but it can sure take a toll on your sanity—especially if you already have another child (or two) that you need to chase after.

NuRoo Baby Collection is centered around products that make your baby's first months of life easier on you both. Their nursing covers, scarves, swaddles, and skin-to-skin pocket carriers are made from a special signature fabric that is designed to be extra soft and comforting against your little one's skin. While their products are designed to keep baby close, secure and comfortable, they also free your hands up so you can grab your toddler before he darts out into the street. 

Coffee + Crumbs has partnered with NuRoo to offer one lucky reader a bundle including a pocket carrier, swaddle, and nursing scarf: a $115 value! Enter our giveaway below; we'll select one lucky winner on Monday, May 8. Plus, ALL C+C readers can save 20 percent off any order from NuRoo with discount code COFFEEANDCRUMBS (expires 12/31/17).

The Strong as a Mother Giveaway!

When we saw these Strong as a Mother shirts, designed by Jenna Hobbs and Tamara Komuniecki, we fell in love. We knew they'd be PERFECT for our team to rock as we set up for the book launch party. A dozen women setting up tables, stocking drinks, and scurrying around to perfect every last detail? No sweat. Mom strength was in full effect. 

(We wore these shirts all morning, and then slept in them all night, and then wore them on our flights home. So yeah...we really really like them.)

Jenna Hobbs is the original creator of the Strong As A Mother t-shirt, inspired by a workout group she started in her hometown of Stony Plain, Alberta. What started as a group of mothers gathering to exercise quickly became something even better: a unique, safe environment where women could speak freely about their motherhood experiences. 

To bring the group even closer, Jenna made the first iteration of Strong as a Mother t-shirts.

"This message was the embodiment of our physical and mental strength as we worked through the weekly workouts, but also on something much bigger. It was all of us as mothers, fighting the daily battles while working all day and all night, longing for a hot cup of coffee, when a sick day is not an option, and the rewards of the job are love. We could all relate to this saying, STRONG AS A MOTHER. We were all in the bittersweet trenches of motherhood."

By the time Tamara discovered the t-shirt on social media and wrote to inquire about wholesale purchasing for her shop (Delish General Store), Jenna had two children and was pregnant with twins. Tamara offered to produce the shirts in Vancouver and use her platform as a way of spreading the movement as far and wide as she could.

A perfect match, right?

We love love LOVE supporting mom-run businesses, and Strong As A Mother is no exception. This is our favorite tee, but we're also eying this black and gold tank top
