nuna leaf review and giveaway winner!

Thank you all for entering the Nuna Leaf Giveaway. It was a huge success and it was great getting to chat with a few of the new followers via blog or facebook comments. I am sure you are all eager to know who has won, but first I want to tell y’all what I love about my new Nuna Leaf. It’s one of my new favorite baby/kid products. Thanks Nuna for sharing this great product with me and my readers.

First off, I love how easy it is to set up. It literally comes in two pieces that just snap into each other. Easy peasy. Because let’s be honest, when you have little ones running around, who has time to put together a piece of baby furniture that has 100 pieces? Not me. This also means it’s easy to store. We have a small house and no garage. I need things that collapse and fit into small spaces and it does just that.nuna leafMy kids are 1 and 2 years old. It took them all of about 5 minutes to get used to the seat. My one year old won’t hold still for anything and yet she will lay in that seat and not move a muscle. It’s very cute to see her just relax, since it’s such a rare sight. And it’s so sweet, my son loves to “help” rock sissy. Very sweet.

I know I already mentioned this, but I love how luxurious the fabric is. It’s durable yet super soft. I love how easy it is to take the organic insert out for an easy clean if you have a spill or one of those horrible newborn blowouts. Along with great fabric, the frame is sturdy metal. I have had baby seats that feel like they are going to fall apart because the metal is so flexible. I feel like this product is going to stand the test of time, and Lord willing, 6 or so children.nuna leaf 2I was surprised at how easy the seat is to adjust from stage 1 (moving) to stage 2 (a locked position). It literally is a little lever that you just switch up or down. This makes it easy to switch from swing mode to chair mode. Super convenient.

I hope you are all able to try out this great product someday. Be sure to check out all of Nuna’s quality products. They really are the top of the line. And now, what you have all been waiting for… the winner is:


Congrats Meg Kate. I know you will love this product!

GIVEAWAY: the nuna leaf

Hey there! It feels like it’s been a long time since I have written a blog post. It’s been a little crazy around here. I plan on sharing all we have been up to very soon. In the meantime, I thought we could do a little give away. Well, actually a BIG giveaway. And our first one ever, at that. USA-leaf-navy-199-xlI am very excited to team up with Nuna and Green Pea Baby & Child for this giveaway. Nuna has graciously agreed to give a navy Nuna Leaf to one lucky reader. The giveaway will end on 11/9 at 11:59pm EST. The winner will be announced Monday, 11/11. So be sure to check back to see if you won!

If you aren’t familiar with Nuna, don’t feel bad. They are an amazing company that has been thriving in Europe and is finally just entering the US market. They make quality strollers, seats, pack-and-plays, and such that are clearly a cut above everything else. Just looking at their website you can get a feel for the quality and innovation that they put into every one of their products.

The Nuna Leaf is truly unique and unrivaled product. A full review is coming soon, but for now, here are just a few little fun facts. The swing adjusts with your child as he gets bigger. An adult up to 130lbs can sit in this swing. It’s easy to clean, and uses no batteries or plugins! (If you have changed batteries in a swing you know just how big of a deal that is.)  The infant insert is 100% organic cotton and the rest of the fabric that wraps around the frame is Oeko-Tex certified. There are excellent color options and the fabric seriously feels so luxurious. I don’t know what I did without this swing for my first two.

Enter the Nuna Leaf giveaway below. There are a few different ways to enter below. For your best chances to win, be sure to do all forms of entry. This giveaway if for US residents only.
