Giveaway: Q-tips Perfect Nursery Gift Pack – CLOSED

by Marcy on February 3, 2010 · 172 comments

Q-tips cotton swabs has teamed up with celebrity nursery designer, Wendy Bellissimo, to introduce the newest addition to the Q-tips family – Q-tips Baby Packs. Q-tips are great for cleaning and applying ointments to baby’s skin, cleaning around a newborn’s umbilical cord and cleaning baby’s outer ear (not inner!!), neck folds and between their tiny toes.

To help celebrate the launch of the new Q-tips Baby Packs, there will be a Twitter party this week – complete with giveaways and great tips from Wendy! The party will take place on Thursday, February 4th at 8 p.m. EST., hashtag -#QtipsBaby.

I recently received my own Q-Tips Baby Packs and they are adorable! They are sturdy and compact and would look great in any nursery. I am excited that I also have the opportunity to give a Q-tips “Perfect Nursery” gift pack to one of you!

The gift pack includes:

  • NEW Q-tips Baby Packs in two designs (safari & farm animals)
  • A silver elephant bank to display in baby’s room
  • A great tip sheet from Wendy Bellissimo on how to create the perfect nursery

What am I giving away?

An essential nursery item to me is a humidifier or vaporizer. It’s great for when babies or kids get sick and it’s also great for white noise so baby sleeps better.

I can’t live without my Diaper Champ. So much better than wasting money on expensive diaper pail refills. BTW, can somebody tell me how to keep baby still to clean her neck folds with a Q-tip? My chubby four-month baby girl is a flailer!

13 Jennifer February 3, 2010 at 9:43 AM

We couldn’t have lived without generic zip sandwich bags. We didn’t do the Diaper Genie thing. We just slipped the diapers into the cheap zip bags and tossed them into a trash can (the kind with a foot pedal for the lid). My husband would empty that into the main garbage cans at the end of each day. It really worked to keep the odor down without having to buy any fancy (and expensive) equipment.
