Being a new mum can be a daunting time, but it's always good to know that others are sharing the experience with you. There's nothing more reassuring than hearing the real-life experiences of other parents and that's why, in conjunction with Fisher-Price, we're looking for four mums, dads or mums-to-be to share their baby experiences with other readers.
Each of our four 'Magical Milestones' parents will win oodles of goodies including:
- Toys and nursery gear from Fisher-Price, worth over £750, to help you through baby's development over the first months
- A video camera to help you record your baby's first months
- A pair of tickets to The Baby Show, Birmingham or Earl's Court
20 runners-up will also each receive a Precious Planet 2-in-1 wind-up mobile, worth £25.
If you think you could be one of our 'Magical Milestones' parents then we'd love to hear from you. Your experiences through your baby's first months will be recorded via features in Prima Baby magazine, as well as video blogs and diaries online here at Babyexpert.com. You'll also get to review Fisher-Price products with other readers throughout the year. As one of the team you'll get to attend a photo-shoot and see your pictures in Prima Baby.
We're looking for one 'Magical Milestones' parent in each of these groups:
- Pregnant in the final trimester on March 31st 2010
- With a newborn up to two months by March 31st 2010
- With a little one (or two!) of two to three months by March 31st 2010
- With a little one between three and six months by March 31st 2010
To enter send us your name, address and a contact number via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also need you to include 150 words about why you think you should be chosen to share your baby's magical milestones, a picture of you and your baby (where appropriate) and confirmation of your availability to attend a photoshoot in London the week beginning 29th March 2010.
