There is a small handful of brands that David and I are "all in" about.  Apple is one.  4moms is another.  The Breeze was the first product of 4moms I ever encountered and I was all "wait. what?! how? yes!!" about it.  Then, right before Henry arrived we jumped all in into the 4moms world.  We have loved our rockaroo + mamaroo and the origami stroller.  Similar to our draw to Apple products, efficiency, innovation, + atheistic are the names of the game.


Make sure to check out the little video short at the bottom of this post.  I could try to explain to you why this 4moms playard is given the name "Breeze," but you might have to see it to believe it.  But right now, take a minute to think about what you hate about your pack-n-play and then think about what you wish it could be like... chances are, you have been dreaming about the Breeze without even knowing it existed.  Happy dance time!

Our Breeze mostly hangs out in our living room - between our sitting area and dinning table.  We have a very open floor plan so little guy can see everyone and not be underfoot.  He is quite the mover (I think he will walk soon) so I love the size of the Breeze.  He can wiggle and crawl and cruise around without feeling that he has totally lost his freedom or view of the world.  


Check out my (very amateur) video below to see the magic for yourself.  You can also check out all the specifics and details about size and design of The Breeze on the 4moms site.



Okay.... drumroll... giveaway time!!  Enter using the rafflecopter below!  Not a mom of a little one?  Dude -- enter anyway!!  Make a friend's day (or year) and gift it to them if you win!

  78. Patients !! It is so easy to get frustrated with children when they ask over and over how to do things. You just have to remember that they are learning and that it takes repetition before it sinks in. But when it does it is so worth it to see the excitement on their faces when they do something all by themselves successfully :)

  89. Honestly the advice I've received is to stop taking advice and do what works best for you! So many mothers love to tell you what works best and although it may have worked for them and their child, it might not work for you!
