Monday Giveaway- Baby Cocoon





Top of the morning to you all! It's Monday again *groan* but that also means it is time for another great giveaway here *cheer*. So cheer up Charlie the working week isn't all bad.

The very lovely WAHM Megan from Edan Rose contacted me recently to tell me about her very clever little baby cocoons. Now, Tinker and I have moved on from all the soft cuddly newborn things and onto the loud, fast, bouncy delights of toddlerhood but I am still partial to a great newbie gift idea and I think Megan's baby cocoons are fabulous.

Edan Rose Cocoons are handkitted pieces of glowworm goodness! All little babies love being swaddled nice and tight just like in the womb. Perfect in the pram or out and about to keep bubby warm. Made of a acrylic, wool and nylon blend so they are durable and soft. Megan recommends using a light wrap under the cocoon for sleeping so that little fingers and toes don't escape through the knit (although this is very cute!)

Cocoons prevent the newborn startle reflex from waking baby. You know how I love anything that promotes more sleep!

To use, simply roll the cocoon down and place baby in feet first and then roll the cocoon up and over baby making sure babies head is exposed.

Photographers will love these for new baby photo shoots as well! Valued at $35 they are a great gift.

I love to support other Aussie mums, and with three little ones at home and a successful craft business I think Megan deserves a Stepford Dreams gold star. You can find her here.

To win your very own Edan Rose cocoon all you need to do is check out her Madeit store for Aussie shoppers OR her Etsy store for OS shoppers. Leave a comment below telling me what you love about these adorable cocoons. Easy! Tinker will draw the winner on Friday.

Now, while we are on the topic of giveaways I thought I might mention a few NEW conditions for my weekly giveaways. Entries will always close at 5am Friday (Sydney time) and the winner must check the winner announcements to see if they have won. I'm too cool to chase unless you are Jude Law then maybe I'll shoot you an email. Winner must email me by 5pm Monday or the prize will be forfeited and redrawn on Monday afternoon.
I have two redraws to do this afternoon so stay tuned!

  2. Awww, these are stunning.

    I recently saw something similar featured in a newborn photography session, and it was beautiful. I love how they are something different to the usual wraps, and pack up so small (hence I could buy more of them ;) )

  5. Love the fact they come in different weights for different seasons! Are you listening Carolyn? Are you sitting down? We are going for number 3! Not for a few months (have to sort some stuff out) but it's on the cards. Anything that will help me have a contented baby while a toddler and a preschooler, as they will be then, rampage around!

  8. Aww super cute, and great idea. When my daughter was born two months early she had a two week NICU stay. They put her in something similar but, not as warm, fuzzy and cute! Newborns love feel snuggled this is perfect, I like it in neutral so you can pass it on!

  12. Oh my, they are so cute! Im only 9 weeks but can just see my precious new one wrapped up in one of those, while I battle to keep a toddler from trying it on!

  13. What a wonderful little creation this cocoon is! I never could contain my feisty little girl in a wrap no matter how hard I tried. She would never protest when I was wrapping her. But in under 30 seconds, she would wriggle out of it and be sleeping in peace, hands and legs all sprawled out. I would just be standing with my jaws on the floor. :D Lovely gift especially for those who are expecting in the winter!

    Don't count me in the draw though. just came in to check out the monday giveaway!

  15. These cocoons are adorable!! What I love about these are that they are so practical and so pretty rolled up as a rose. Not only that, but roses are one of my favourite flowers. Please enter me in your draw. Thanks!

  22. I love the mystery of the cocoon. No hands, no feet, just a beautiful little set of eyes peering out at the world.

  23. Wow, how adorable! I love the idea of a soft, natural wrap, and one that takes the hard work out of wrapping makes it genius!
