Summer Infant Monitor Recall

I have two of these monitors and can confirm that the power cords are wayyyy too long.  They're recalling some 1.5 million of them--but I think they are basically just going to provide new labeling and usage instructions.  I do not think they are going to replace them.  They should, um,  probably consider shortening the cord and/or provide new cords to people impacted by the recall.  In my humble opinion, this isn't really a "recall" -- it's more like a public service announcement so they don't get sued anymore.

A couple of great deals to share on this gloomy Friday...

Ok, you're probably thinking, "Man, this girl shops a lot" and that wouldn't be completely untrue.  I do tend to shop online more in the winter seeing as that I HATE the cold and carting two kids around in this weather is misery.  Also, when I see a good deal for new moms or moms-to-be I feel compelled to pass it on.

Mamapedia - $5 for a year subscription to Parents magazine (or $8 for 2 years)
Here is the link:
(if that doesn't work try this: http://deals.mamapedia.com/deals/parents-magazine)

Zulily - Halo Sleepsacks for $10 (regularly $20-$25)
Crud sorry I didn't get this one out earlier-it looks like they've sold out of a lot)
Check out the Wee Squeak shoes too - so cute!

Certifikid - $58 for a 60-minute in home massage from Pampered Perfect

You're probably wondering when I am going to write something useful again.  That's a fair question.  I'm wondering the same thing.  Winter illness + sleep deprivation = mush brain.

I have a good giveaway (6 pack of similac) coming soon!
