And our survey says…

Today we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers what prizes they would like to see in the next contest. We had some great responses and would love to offer all of them, but sadly a ‘full night’s sleep’ and a ‘longer weekend’ are a little bit out of our league!

However we did take note and have put together a cool little package to giveaway as the prize for our weekend contest, which includes the most popular requests. So, now all you have to do is enter the contest by answering the following question:

What’s the best piece of advice you can give to a parent-to-be?

An Interview with our Mum’s Time Out Prize Winner

You may remember that we ran a competition last month to find a deserving mum to send on a day’s Time Out. We wanted one of you to join our guests at the BornFree Celebrity Baby Shower and lovely mum of three, Susie Brown, was our winner.

Susie has very kindly taken the time  to answer a few questions and share her experience with you:

What made you become a fan of BornFree in the first place? 

 Since having my 3rd child there’s a lot of new things about for babies and I came across BabyBornFree on Facebook who I’d never heard of before. I was interested in all the products that you sell to see if there’s anything I’d like for Libby. Also so I could tell my family and mum and dad and friends all over the world  about yourselves so they knew about you.

What was the first thing you did when you heard that you had won the competition? 

 I was really happy to be picked, it was a day out  for just Libby and myself to enjoy, and we did.

Can you tell us a bit about what you did at the Celebrity Baby Shower?

When I arrived I was greeted by everyone there and then was taken around the different companies to view their products and they told me about the different things they do for mums to be and babies. I had not heard of many of them so it was great to find new shops or websites to share with others as well which I will be doing in the very near future on my parent group. I was given some gifts from the different stalls and of course BornFree which i was so happy to receive so thank you to all for them and Libby loves her beautiful pillow from BabyFace and also the BornFree TwistN’Pop straw cup which I’d recommend for anyone to buy as Libby finds it so easy to use and it doesn’t leak.

Were you able to enjoy any of the SoSPA treatments?

I did get offered to but I didn’t do the SoSPA treatment as I had Libby with me and was unsure if she play up if I left her, also as I was late I didn’t feel I’d have time to enjoy a treatment as it might have been a bit of a rush.

I heard your daughter behaved beautifully during the event, did she enjoy her day?

 Libby loved it and was really good and loved seeing the babies there, she went to see them

Will you be entering more of our competitions in future? 

After winning such a great prize I haven’t entered anymore yet as I didn’t want to look greedy to others and to give others the opportunity to sample your products. I will definitely be entering more but also now I know where to buy Libby’s drink bottles and BornFree products for my family’s babies I will be buying them in the future and recommending yourselves to others like I have been doing.

Brilliant answers, thanks Susie. I think we can all agree that you have been an awesome prize winner, we’re so glad you enjoyed your day!

BornFree’s Ron Vigdor in The New York Times!

Good news, The New York Times  is currently featuring  BornFree’s president Ron Vigdor in their “You’re the Boss” column. The article is about two entrepreneurial brothers who have invented an all in one razor, the Shave Mate and it highlights their struggle to get a foothold in a market dominated by giants like Gillette.  Ron Vigdor is one of several small business owners who have been asked to give their analyses and share their similar experiences. Ron says:

I’ve learned that to launch a successful brand you need to create an innovative product that fills a niche and be first to market with your concept…..I had a similar experience when founding BornFree. Instead of trying to compete with the established brands, BornFree focused on what made our brand unique. We were the first brand to offer baby products free of Bisphenol A. We first launched in Whole Foods, where there was a higher consumer demand for products free of toxins and chemicals,

We are very proud of the fact that we have never used harmful toxins like BPA in products and have pioneered the BPA-Free baby bottle market and it’s amazing to see our founder talking about it in publications like the New York Times. Congratulations Ron!
