Glow Baby – review & giveaway

  Glow Baby is a proudly Canadian company started by a mom who couldn’t find what she was looking for.  When Lindsay’s second daughter was born, she needed a simple way to track the baby’s feeding/diapering/sleeping patterns while still caring for her older daughter.  “Baby’s First Journal” was born and the rest is history!
