Waiting for Baby with Baby Steps

Thank you to Splash Brands for my free Baby Steps scratch off calendar in exchange for this review and giveaway.

The “BabySteps” Scratch-Off Calendar is a beautifully designed wall poster with 236 entertaining facts and tips for parents-to-be. The individual fields are all covered by scratch paint. One new field is scratched off every day.

What a novel idea! At least something I’ve never seen before. I would have loved this during my pregnancy. You can find out cool facts about pregnancy and follow along with your baby’s progress. An expectant mama always needs something to help her along!

I am proud to be giving this away to my friend and neighbor expecting her first baby!
