Enter to win by either posting a photo of your family on our Facebook Fan page with a blurb about what makes your family special or sending the same information to moms@newbornfree.com.

One family will win $100 worth of BornFree products. Two other families will win prizes as well!

Meet Our Finalists:

Vote by leaving a comment with the name of the family you’d like to win the Grand Prize! Thank you for entering!

Ashley Jean Schermer Pettit


We are the Pettit family! Ashley, Trent, & Taylor. As a family we are just enjoying each day, and seeing what life has in store for us. Two things are for sure…We love each other and can take on anything together.


Anna Lisa Rasmussen

We are a perfectly imperfect family. We are a young family that is struggling through hard economic times but try to remember to be thankful daily that we have our health and we have each other.


Katie Gunn


My name is Katie and this is my family! My daughter, Brynn, is now 4.5 months. This is her father Matt. We are a special family for many reasons but mostly because we truly feel blessed to have one another. We have been through a lot in the 4.5 months since we’ve had Brynn. Brynn had to have heart surgery at one we…ek old and I couldn’t have made it through it without Matt. We find out soon if she will have to have another surgery. Matt is a stay-at-home Dad while I finish my student teaching (I graduate in December) and work. He is amazing with her! We work every day to provide Brynn with the best opportunities possible.


And the winners are:

1st place to Ashely Petit  ($100 credit)
2nd place to Katie Gunn  ($50 credit)
3rd place to Ana Lisa Rasmussen ($25 credit)

Thank you for voting! Winners, please email moms@newbornfree.com with your shipping info so that we can get your prizes out!
