After getting to try the Soleil for the first time on Saturday, I just knew I had to share the new carrier with the Leakies. I was visiting in Austin just as the Beco Team and Jamie, TheBabyGuyNYC were there and we got to meet up and try the Soliel for the first time. It was too perfect, we had to work together to share these new carriers. Thankfully, carriers package up small so fitting 5 boxes wasn’t too much trouble to bring them home with me. The Beco Team seemed excited to share the carriers with Jamie and I, and we discussed a joint giveaway for our readers. A win-win! It was a great conversation over BBQ and we planned the whole thing, it was going to be fun, half the boxes for him, half for me. All for you.
So we shared pictures on Instagram (find me here and Jamie there), twitter, and Facebook and told our followers to stay tuned for the giveaway details. It was fun, exciting, and everyone had lots of questions about the Soliel.
But somehow there was a miscommunication and Jamie and I found ourselves in the middle of this:
Now, no worries. We’re all good people involved here that want to encourage and support families. I have no doubt that with our common goals we’ll work things out just fine. I have loved working with Beco and they are TLB sponsors that prioritize supporting breastfeeding families by partnering with us. They are a great company and this was just a misunderstanding that I’m certain will be resolved in a way that works for everyone. Probably you too, dear reader.
So now, instead of giving away the carriers I thought we’d be giving away, Jamie and I are offering up the Soleils Beco sent us each to try. He and I are both sharing those with you while we smooth things over with the good folks at Beco.
