I spent the weekend absorbed in baby shower excitement for none other than my best friend, which is the closest I’ve been to aunt-hood. Since I had my own child so young (at 23 years old) and am in the profession of finding the coolest baby products ever, I’ve understandably become the go-to guru on what to do, buy and return. And sorting through her piles of amazing and generous baby shower gifts, I realized that there are so many better, safer baby products than what’s typically on a baby registry.
That’s why blogs like Family Style are so important, because new moms have no clue what they need — especially young moms who usually don’t have much first-person advice to rely on. So from one mom to another, it’s not only important to have baby products like shampoo, lotion, diaper cream and sunscreen — but it’s important to make sure they’re safe and effective.

MD Moms is one of those brands that I stumbled upon and immediately knew I had to pass on — much like the Boppy or Aden + Anais. It’s one of those can’t-live-without finds that I feel obliged to pass on to new moms at every chance I can. Made by moms who happen to be pediatricians, the ingredients are safe, the formulas are unparalleled, and in the case of the Baby Silk Sunscreen Towelettes, the ideas are genius. (Those towelettes, which Elina and I featured in Babble’s Summer Style Guide, are a non-negotiable must-have.)
Because these life-changing products are now available at American Eagle’s 77kids, MD Moms is teaming up with 77kids in their wildly popular “Born to Be” baby contest, in which the winner will be provided with a complete set of baby care items worth almost $300. But because MD Moms loves our Babble readers so much, they’re offering you the chance to win the same prize pack — right here; right now.
