iParenting Media Announces Outstanding Products of 2005
iParenting Media is pleased to announce the winners of our Outstanding Products of 2005 Call for Entries, during which we evaluated items ranging from fun ride-on toys, innovative baby gear, books and videos to educational software and helpful household products. All of the items were thoroughly evaluated by experienced reviewers to determine which ones exceeded the standards to earn an award.
The evaluation process utilized by the iParenting Media Awards program is so thorough it has attained ISO 9001:2000 Certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO is the world's largest developer of standardization regulations, and ISO 9001:2000 is an internationally recognized standard of quality assurance.
"The iParenting Media Awards program is dedicated to recognizing the very best products in the marketplace and making parents aware of them. We kept that responsibility in mind as we determined the Outstanding Products of 2005," says Alvin All, Chief Executive Officer of iParenting Media. "Products that earned the iParenting Media Award exceeded the high evaluation standards we set. The next step is to share them with our audience throughout our publications and connect them directly with consumers via our retailer network online directory."
To be considered for an award, each company submitted four identical samples of each product, which were then precisely matched within iParenting's database of hundreds of experienced reviewers using iParenting's state-of-the-art technology. An expert, a childcare setting and a family reviewed the products and submitted a thorough evaluation of each item. Results were compiled and submitted to the iParenting Media Executive Committee for final approval. The end result of this comprehensive process is a list of award-winning products families can feel confident in purchasing for their loved ones.
*THE AMAZING MIRACLE BLANKET IS A WINNER!
Professional Testimonial: Jill L. Reyes - Certified Doula - AZ
Each time I do a postpartum visit with one of my clients, I show them a miracle blanket and explain how it can be of immense help to their baby AND them to help them sleep. Since I do postpartum visits between week one and two after the birth, the parents at this point are almost always more than interested to discover something to help aid the baby's and their sleep.
Only once did I have a client give me back the sample blanket. They didn't think it was effective. I happily took it back and told them I was sorry that it did not seem to work. Well, guess what? Within a week, they called and said they definitely wanted it back! They hadn't given it enough time to determine whether or not it would work. Once they did, they knew they had to have it.
While doing a postpartum visit one week after the birth of another couple's baby, I observed her crying non-stop. She apparently had a period during each evening where she was just inconsolable, which is the tale tell sign of colic. I always carry a sample Miracle Blanket with me, so I suggested we give it a try. We wrapped her up, started "Shhhhhhhing her" and within a couple of minutes or less, she stopped crying and fell immediately to sleep! The parents gave me the biggest, albeit tired, smiles and thanked me profusely for turning them on to the Miracle Blanket.
I never go to my client visits without a miracle blanket for swaddling with me, so the parents can try one out, for free, for a few days prior to making the decision to buy one or not. It has never failed and not once have I gotten an unsatisfied client.
I Thank You for the parents this blanket has helped, as well as giving me one more "trick of the trade" to use as a doula!

This swaddling blanket is the most fabulous thing - I was given 2 as baby gifts and they have made our life so much easier. My baby started sleeping through the night at 5 weeks (8 hours) and is always comforted when fussy by the Miracle Blanket. The ones with velcro or even the blankets made especially thin for swaddling do not even come close - people don't believe me and so I have to start giving them as gifts! I wish I would have thought of it. Thanks!
