Prego Planner & Tot Tags Review and Giveaway!

When I was planning my wedding, I had a binder or organizer that helped to organize all the lovely little details. Appointments, pictures, phone numbers and everything were all a page turn away.

When I found out I was pregnant, I improvised and wrote down everything in a notebook, but realized there was nothing like that organizer for pregnant women, (at least back then there wasn't!)

I remember a dear friend of mine was pregnant around the same time as I was, and her mind was always full of irrational thoughts. We went to a bagel shop once together and were talking, and she was venting to me. "What happens if I should pass out, and someone needs to call my doctor? My wallet contains all of my doctors cards, but what if my OB's info isn't there." (She ended up taping her OBGYN card to the back of her license.) She had valid points, and many pregnant women worry about stuff like this often. For me, it was keeping track of the water I consumed, and all of my appointments.

I was recently introduced to a product called The Prego Planner, by the creator and owner of Braelyn Bounty Bug, LLC, Heather.

The stylish cover makes it the perfect 1st time mom, "oops-it's-been-a-few-years" mom, or any expecting mom's accessory, at only 7.5" x 9", this portable binder contains pages for you to keep all of your important information. It contains a 12 month undated calendar, a place for insurance info, phone numbers, pharmacy details, and even a gift log.

You can keep your birth plan in this organizer, as well as read suggestions of questions for your potential pediatricians. If you're a list maker, (or list follower), you'll enjoy the check list of things to do before baby arrives, friends and family call list pages, and post delivery check list.

This planner makes one of the best, (in my opinion), and most unique baby shower gifts on the market! In fact, I think that this would be a very cherished memory for first time moms, especially! Before the baby comes, "Mommy Brain" starts and I can tell you from experience- I forgot a ton of important information from the time I was pregnant with my son and my daughter! The pictures are great, but the quality of this product in person is even better! Prego Planners were part of the Fall 2008 Celebrity BUMP Bag, filled with all of the best products for babies and moms! You can find the Prego Planner online, in several boutiques across the country, and in many Babies R Us stores, as well.

Another amazing product developed by the same super mom, Heather, is the fabulous Tot Tags. Again, another must-have for first timer moms, Tot Tags provide an instant mini-check list of stuff that should be in your diaper bag before you head out. The unique lined ID area allows you to write in your name or address, which makes it perfect for daycare, church nurseries, play dates or traveling with baby.

Affordable Tot Tags are available in several trendy patterns, which would complete that perfect baby shower gift! Best of all, the new mom-to-be would be sure to use your gift every day!

Want it?
Head over to Braelyn Bounty Bug, the home of the Prego Planner and Tot Tags, and pick out your favorite designs. Be sure to mention that you found them on 4BabyAndMom!

There's a store near me, located at:

Lily Pads & Lullabies
382 N. Main Street
Centerville, UT 84014
801.397.0305

My best friend just found out she's expecting, and since I recently had my first baby I remember all too well (or do I?) the incredible forgetfulness that comes with pregnancy!

mikaroni July 16, 2009  

Near the end of my pregnancy, things got really hectic - trying to prepare our house for the new arrival and my mom's visit, going on a last-minute trip with my in-laws, dr appointments left and right, and on and on...I had little post-it notes all over the house reminding me of important details. A planner would have been SO much easier!

The closest one to me is 3 hours north at Village Maternity in Seattle, WA. Since I have a brother that lives there, I visit often so I could still shop there. My baby is almost 6 months but I have a sister who is pregnant and I would love to give her the planner (I might keep the cards for my baby)
