Review/Giveaway: HappyBaby Products

Recently Caden reached a (what I believe to be) huge milestone!
He is eating solids!
We started him out with cereals and are now slowly
working our way through fruits and vegetables!
Being as obsessed about being ready for Caden's birth as I was, I bought the first can of baby cereal before he was born. I happened to have a coupon for $1.00 off of HappyBaby's HappyBellies rice cereal, good at Babies-R-Us. (A store I was obsessed with at the time :) ) So I picked it up and stuck it in my cupboard, waiting for the day Caden would need it.
Fast forward a few months. Caden was diagnosed with reflux and the doctor wanted me to put cereal in his bottles to help the formula stick. What did I have waiting for me?!?!
HappyBaby's HappyBellies Rice Cereal!!
Fast forward once again to an empty can and a desperate mother. I sent my husband out for baby cereal and what did I get? The old school gerber cereal box. Not organic. No DHA. Let me tell you, that night was the only night Caden had it. It is still sitting in my cupboard.
The next day I stocked up on HappyBaby's HappyBellies cereal! No seriously. I think I still have 5 cans of it to use! They have three kinds. Organic Brown Rice, Organic Oatmeal, and Organic Multi-Grain cereals. I am the proud owner of all three!(The first cereal experience! In his BRAND NEW highchair!)

Can I tell you how EXCITED I was when I was given the chance to review the HappyBaby's brand?!?! It's the first time I get to review a product that I already use and LOVE! What do I love about it? For starters, I love that it is organic and 100% natural. I also really like that it has DHA and PROBIOTIC PROTECTION! (It is the ONLY organic baby cereal with both probiotic protection and DHA. My babies development is top of the list important to me!) I also like that it is endorsed by noted pediatrician and author, Dr. Bob Sears. But most of ALL, I like that Caden loves it. It must tastes good, because he gobbles it up!I also love HappyBaby's mission statement:
"We are dedicated to the proposition that a healthy baby is a HAPPYBABY.
Every baby is born pure, perfect and full of potential.
Your precious one merits the best care possible.
During those first months when baby is growing in leaps and bounds,
we want to help you ensure that you are feeding your child
the very best."
(They sent it to me in this styrofoam box filled with dry ice! How cool is that!)

I was sent many items to review by HappyBaby. Since Caden is only 5 months old, he is still only on their cereal. Please check back for reviews on their Frozen HappyBaby Simple Purees (6 months+), Frozen HappyBites Sorta Chunky meals (9+ months), and HappyBaby's Organic Bellies & Puffs Snacks (3 flavors!!)! I will post a review each time he reaches a new meal stage!

2 free trial coupons for HappyBellies organic cereal
2 free trial coupons for the HappyBaby frozen meals
and 2 free trial coupons for the Organic Bellies&Puffs snacks.

Tastybaby is coming out with a line of baby cereal that is formulated for morning, daytime & evening use. I can't wait to give it to my son so he sleeps longer at night! And theirs has prebiotics too which my pediatrician says is better than probiotics!

I learned that frozen fruits and vegetables are at least as nutritious as fresh fruits and vegetables, if not more.
