Baby Magic Bath Caddy Gift Set

Mother’s Day is over, but I have a Baby Magic giveaway for moms with babies or moms who are expecting. Speaking of expectant moms, Baby Magic recently conducted a survey in anticipation of the upcoming movie, What to Expect When You’re Expecting (to be released this Friday, May 18th). According to the Baby Magic survey, the reality of motherhood is very different than moms’ pre-birth expectations.

The Baby Magic survey was conducted by Kelton between April 16th and 23rd, 2012. The survey included 506 mothers with children ages three and under. The research asked moms a series of questions about their post-birth life. Below are some research findings:

  • 57% of moms had problems with water all over the bathroom floor
  • 30% of babies spat up on someone other than mom
  • 42% had poop explosions that covered baby’s clothes
  • 44% of moms noticed unidentified diaper smells
  • 20% of babies farted in a crowded public space
  • 16% of moms had babies that went to the bathroom on someone
  • 30% of moms had babies with more food on baby than in baby
  • Over 70% of moms seek out recognizable brand names (like Baby Magic) or those that have been recommended by family and friends
  • 79% of moms found magic in the everyday moments with their baby
  • 79% would not trade their experiences for anything in the world
  • 54% thought that their baby’s first laugh or steps were their most memorable moments
  • 60% of dads helped with diaper changing
  • 49% of dads fed babies
  • 47% of dads tucked in their kids

  1. I expected the perfect TV mom and baby experience–all coos and laughs and a perfect home with mom wearing pearls and still having an outside life. Well…let’s just say that TV might not be a great indication of reality :)

  2. A future filled with unconditonal love from a child who is a creation of a love 20 years in the making that will now continue for many generations to come.

  3. I lost one son 5-5-05 , now have another born 9-12-10 , Best gift in the world , every day is something new he makes me laugh, cry and all above . Makes me cry more when he signs asl ( I am deaf and he hearing) Greatest feeling in the world! Love him to pieces :)

  4. When I was first expecting (mother of now 7 here-youngest is 1)- I expected eveything to be easy- you know like all the TV and commrcials show.

    What a very quick rude awakening-who knew that you actually have to stay up most of the night, get to change nasty diapers (what is in those diapers on TV, that make those mothers act like they smell like roses?).

    I ended up being so jealous of the mother on the Brady Bunch- I mean really “Where was my Alice?”

    But honstly I wouldn’t change any of it for all the riches in the world.

  5. When I was expecting I expected things to be a lot easier. I thought I would clean less and get more help around the house. I thought wrong but I now have a 9 month old little boy who is very tough and vert strong because of it.

  6. I thought I would have morning sickness but didn’t have any and I knew I would love being pregnant but I loved it even more than I could have imagined!

  7. I am expecting my first child in November and I expected to be really exhausted and have nausea and I was right!!! :)

  8. I was expecting nothing less than what I got. I knew I would have morning sickness, but never did I expect to get “all day” sickness!

  9. I’m 27 weeks pregnant, expecting my first born in August. .And I was expecting the common symptoms pregnant women experience during pregnancy, nausea, sore breast, swollen feet, cravings, back pain, fatigue. . But luckily I still haven’t experience any of that! Pregnancy has been absolutely wonderful for me, So far!!

  10. I thought I would have morning sickness but didn’t have any. Although I did gain tons of weight but having that baby made it all worth it.

  11. I expected to be able to push my baby out and I couldn’t so a c-section was done. I didn’t expect blood lose leading to a transfusion but it happened

  12. I didn’t have many expectations – I can tell you what I DIDN’T expect were complications (hyperemesis, placenta previa, and diabetes, namely). I am on my third pregnancy presently and am still amazed at the curveballs each pregnancy seems to throw.

  13. I wanted a girl so bad that I knew I would have a boy. Guess what!! I had a boy…..and sooo happy that I did. He’s my reason for living.

  14. I expected my baby to be a little fat rolly polly baby, but he was long and skinny. I ate fried chicken twice a weekand for 2 months ate Cadbury cream eggs 3 to 4 times a week. I only gained 12 my entire pregnancy and expected the baby to be at least 9lbs. He only weighted 6lbs 7.13oz.

  15. I expected strange cravings like pickles and peanutbutter together. But I had none. Instead I had an aversion to the smell of coffee.

  16. i have 6 grandchildren and each and everyone of them we used nothing but baby magic product . it was even put on the shower list . I’ve never smelt a baby smel so sweet ever. i’ve used this product for over 17 yrs my oldest rght down to the 10 week old baby.Thank you baby magic your the best bar none

  17. I expected almost everything to happen that I read about in the What to Expect books. Almost everything did, so the books were helpful…anything that happened along the way was nothing compared to the little girl that entered our lives and turned everything upside down (in a good way). We can’t imagine life without her!

  18. I didn’t expect how painful labor would actually be. According to the books I read you should expect discomfort and pressure. I felt pain and agony. It was all worth it after of course.

  19. I was very fortunate with my son. The doctors kept telling me he was a high risk baby and that he could have deformations and a heart deformation because when I was pregnant with him my sugar was almost impossible to control. Now he is 16 weeks (today) and doing great. He has none of the problems that the doctors said he could have and is my joy. There are many troubles but we get over them and he always makes my day. :)

  20. I was hoping for some sort of new invention where the baby could just be teleported out. “Beam me out, Scotty!”

  21. This time around I expected everything to work out perfectly however its the complete opposite ! I am due in 3 + weeks and need a new apartment by June 1st and then I find out my husband is cheating on me…lovely.

  22. As a foster mom, I have had 16 babies pass through our home in the pass 4 years. I have experienced everything you can imagine, and I would love to win this special kit. Life in our home is hectic, and saving money is a must. But, I would not trade my life for alk the money in the world. Getting a chance to bond and get these little ones ready to go back home or be adopted is a huge blessing. So much a blessing that we adopted #12 whom we had for 18 months, she is now 2 and the joy of our lives!

  23. I was open to anything during my delivery but still expected a normal delivery. I ended up being too exhausted to push after almost 3 hours when my baby was not progressing. I asked for a c-section, and after was told by the doctor that I made the right choice because the umbilical cord was around my son’s neck three times. I had a very uneventful and easy pregnancy, yet my poor son had several issues after birth. Fortunately the hospital was quick and knew what they were doing, so my son was better by the next morning and is now a healthy and happy two month old!

  24. I expect to have a lot of cravings but instead I did not have appetite to eat at all as I puked most of the time

  25. I was hopeing for a easy birth, and a calm baby to cuddle. csection, and a wired baby is what i got and wouldnt change it for the world!

  26. I expected a normal pregnancy but nothing about it was normal but my son was born happy and healthy so I can’t complain.

  27. I actually have forgotten unpleasant things over many years. I sent free tickets to my expecting granddaughter to see the movie, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”.

  28. I expected to get as big as a house…and I did with my last and we have a new baby due next month and I am again! lol! Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  29. I expected to finally get some sleep after being so uncomfy for the last month, yes I was delusionsal!

  30. I expected the second time to be easier. It wasn’t. I’m still recovering from giving birth 11 days ago.

  31. I thought it was easier / It is common remarks that people pass about subsequent birth are usually easier and faster to go through.

  32. I expected to deliver as soon as the contractions got unbearable – but instead was in labor (with my 1st son) for 2 1/2 days.

  33. before i got pregnant i always heard that all your scenes are heightened but i was surprised that they weren’t.. i also thought id have lots of cravings but i really didnt

  34. I expected the pregnancy to be a breeze, just not the delivery and it was actually the opposite for me.

  35. I expected that pregnancy would be a lot more difficult. But I had super easy pregnancies and deliveries.

  36. I didn’t know what to expect at first. Now that I have six I know a lot about what to expect and still get surprises!
