We were sent product in exchange for brand representation and an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
I discovered an awesome shop at the perfect time. Charlie was just starting to teethe, so naturally she was drooling gallons and chewing on everything. She also hadn’t quite mastered being able to hold a teether for longer than a few minutes. thing. She also hadn’t quite mastered being able to hold a teether for longer than a few minutes. When I stumbled across Freckle Baby’s Instagram feed, I just knew I had to have these products. Her patent-pending design are her bibs and blankets with fabric “snap leashes” to attach pacifiers or teethers. Babies drop and throw things constantly, so this is necessary for my sanity. I like the built in leash better than the detachable kind. Sometimes the metal clasp on other leashes can be irritating to Charlie and I am always worried I will pinch her. For the last six weeks, Charlie has been a brand ambassador for Freckle Baby, LLC. This small company started through Kickstarter funding last year and has really taken flight since then. Kim Pratt, the owner of Freckle Baby, has four small boys and dreamed of creating a product that could be her “extra set of hands”. With the creativity and motivation of a mama, the snap leash bibs and blankets were born.
The first thing that grabbed me was the packaging. I am a sucker for pretty packaging. The gift set was so carefully and beautifully wrapped. The set came with a hat, bib, wooden teething ring, and blanket. I quickly snapped the bib on with the wooden ring attached and she knew exactly what to do next. The ring was easy for her to hold and she loves the wooden feel on her gums. The best part? It couldn’t fall! At times I kept her pacifier and her teether attached so she could interchange them and she loved it.
Kim is launching a second Kickstarter campaign today! Kickstarter is a platform for crowd funding. The projects built on Kickstarter are usually of a design, art, graphic, and fashion nature. It is a place where creative individuals can go, set a goal, and find backers to help them make their project come to fruition. Kickstarter typically does not help promote projects, around 40% of projects on Kickstarter succeed. The success of a project on Kickstarter is based almost entirely on social media sharing to help build awareness. Check it out HERE. She is adding more awesomeness to her already amazing brand. Her new colors and styles are just to die for. I have loved working with this small business and can’t wait to watch it continue to flourish.
She has some early bird deals for those who choose to support:

Charlie is beautiful! My daughter Cameron had a hemangioma just like hers. We had an incredible journey and found an amazing Doctor in New York that shrank it over a period of a year or so, with propranolol and constant monitoring, with no side effects. Cameron’s birthmark is now barely visible and has been this way since she was 4 (she is 9 now). I would love to tell your our experience if you are interested. Please email me if you are.

I’m a 29 year old woman who had large hemangiomas the size of tennis balls covering my mouth area and ear. I didn’t have surgery to remove or minimize it (this was in the late 80s/early 90s) and it went down every year until it was hardly noticeable by the time I was in first or second grade!
