Hold It Baby: It’s Sanity on a String! (Giveaway)


My twin boys were always big “tossers” as babies. If they had something in their hands, it would eventually end up on the floor. They tossed food off their high chairs, pacifiers from their cribs, toys from their strollers, and anything else they had in their grip. With two babies at once, you can imagine all the picking up I had to do! It got really frustrating at times.

I was recently sent a terrific product that would have solved a lot of those problems for me. It’s called Hold It Baby, which is described as “sanity on a string”! I can definitely see why. The Hold It Baby consists of three lanyards that can be attached to your baby’s stroller, high chair, shopping cart, airline seat or other place, and can hold up to six items at a time, such as books, pacifiers, toys, sippy cups, and more.

What’s really clever about Hold It Baby is that it has many different attachments on it—two sizes of silicone bands, a snap and a clip—so that it can hold just about anything that your baby is likely to play or eat with and toss. It also comes in a terrific storage bag for easy portability, and it’s even washable!

If you’ve got older kids, they can attach Hold It Baby to portable video games, sunglasses, or other items they don’t want to fall on the floor and break. This is a terrific product that really is a sanity saver for parents, especially if they have “little tossers” like my boys!

Please visit www.HoldItBaby.com to order. There’s also a very helpful video on the site that shows you exactly how to use the Hold It Baby.

DISCOUNT

When you order 2 or more Hold It Babys from www.HoldItBaby.com and enter coupon code MULTIPLES at checkout, you get 10% off your purchase! This is great for families with twins. Or with one baby, you can keep one Hold It Baby in the car and another in the house or with the stroller.

  1. This question would be much easier if it was what does your baby NOT throw on the floor. He throws EVERYTHING!! I mean everything. I swear we have lost stuff and spent lots of time looking for dropped items in stores. I would love to get this.

  19. Well, we are expecting our first in January ~ but I have watched my nieces, nephews, and friend's children constantly throw their pacifiers, bottles, and toys on the floor over and over and over again! I imagine this invention is a BIG help.

  49. Seriously, what doesn't she toss? Out at restaurants is the worst, since the floor is gross enough that anything that makes it to the floor is out of commission. Mostly it's her favorite toys, lovey, measuring cup and spoon, and books.
