WashPOD Review & GIVEAWAY!


I've posted several pictures of Owen in the WashPOD recently and many people have commented, e-mailed and asked me questions about it.  Since there seemed to be so much interest, I contacted the company who sells them, Prince Lionheart, and asked if they would be willing to help me host a giveaway so that one of you could win WashPOD of your own.  They quickly responded and happily agreed to provide a free WashPOD to one of my lucky readers!!

For those of you not familiar with this product, here is the manufacturer's description:

Introducing the ultimate warm and secure space for bathtime. The WashPOD provides a better way to bathe your little one in an environment that emulates that of a mother's womb. The baby in the WashPOD will naturally convert into the fetal position. Because this is such a familiar feeling it will quickly soothe, calm, and relax the baby and allow them to bathe without feeling out of their element. Recommended by physicians and midwives as one of the best ways to bathe your newborn baby. Age: 0-6 months.


My Review:
I personally decided to purchase the WashPOD shortly after Austin was born.  He was born in the winter and while he always enjoyed his baths, I felt the constant need to cover him with warm washcloths or pour water over him to keep him warm since the sling in his baby tub kept him in a lying down position, causing the front of his body to be mostly out of the water.  As a new mother I was always so concerned about my baby's temperature and whether or not he was comfortable since he couldn't exactly say, "Mom, I'm cold, get me outta here!"  I just knew there had to be a better way.

I came across the WashPOD after it was recommended by a friend and we were big fans right from the beginning!  It not only kept him much warmer since his most of his body was in the water now, but it also let him bathe in a sitting position which he seemed to enjoy a lot more.  I really enjoyed bathing Austin in the WashPOD and was sad when he grew out of it around 6 months.  I was excited to bring the WashPOD back out once Owen was born and was thrilled when he seemed to enjoy it just as much as his big brother had!

The WashPOD is probably best used once your baby has pretty good head control but they don't need to be able to sit up on their own.  You just fill the pod up with a couple inches of warm water and sit baby down in it on the cushy white foam piece.  They naturally sit up on their own in a comfortable fetal-like position and you're free to wash away all while staring into your sweet baby's happy little face!

Ok...on to the GIVEAWAY...

The people at Prince Lionheart only asked that I give my readers the following single guideline when entering to win the free WashPOD:


-Reader must sign-up for monthly newsletter by completing form here: https://app.e2ma.net/app/view:Join/signupId:71950/acctId:18589
We do not spam, nor disclose any information to other businesses. We also conform to a 1 email per month rule so as not to inundate our consumers. On certain occasions, though rare, we may send out 2 emails per month if there is a baby model search, or huge event for example.

So, once you sign up for the newsletter, just come back here and leave a comment letting me know that you did and you will be entered to win!!

The giveaway will end next Friday at noon and I'll announce the winner by that afternoon.  I'm thinking of a really fun way to announce the winner as well which will probably involve Austin and the video camera.  We'll see...

Good luck to everyone!!  I know you'll enjoy the WashPOD just as much as I have!
