Dr. Carey's™ Baby Care Kit {Giveaway}

Contest Closed
How many useless things did you receive at your baby shower?  It's all relative I guess.  One mom might love a wipe warmer for baby, while another found it to be a complete waste (that would be me.)  I love to give shower gifts that are utterly practical.  Wouldn't you want to give something that you know the mom-to-be will use, and won't end up sitting on a dusty closet shelf?

I know what I'll be giving to the next expectant mom in my circle of friends and family, a Dr. Carey's Baby Care Kit.  The kit comes nicely packaged in a box measuring 12 3/8" x 12 3/8" x 3".  Inside you get:
  • Dr. Carey’s™ Baby Care Book for the first year
  • Dr. Carey's swaddling blanket
  • A+D Diaper Rash Ointment
  • Hawaii Medical's GumDrop™ Pacifier
  • Squirt Bottle for Homemade Saline Solution
  • Digital Thermometer
  • Nasal Aspirator 
Dr. Carey's Kit includes so many helpful things that an expecting mother will need, especially for the first year of her baby's life.  The book itself is filled with useful information and photographs on dealing with sicknesses and minor problems, and is your guidebook to the essentials provided in the kit.  It also serves as a memory book, with areas to record baby's firsts and milestones. 

Dr. Carey Chronis is a long-standing board certified pediatrician with a private practice in Ventura, California.  I love this silly photo of him - if only all pediatricians had his bedside manner!

BUY IT!  The kit costs only $49.95, a great deal for all that's included.

WIN IT!  One reader will receive a Dr. Carey's Baby Care Kit, to use for herself or as a gift!
