Default Daycare.com Product Review Panel

I used forum members in the past to review and provide information on daycare products. I need three panels of 12. There is a product also for dads, so if you have husbands that are helpers, they would be needed to use and test them. The items are provided free and I want members that have been with us on the forum for a while who I can trust will take the time to use and review them for me.

Here are the three types of products which are normally sold at Targets, Toys R Us, etc.

Twelve diaper bags, a baby restraining item for the crib (keeps the baby sleeping on its back to reduce the risk of sudden death syndrome) and a high tech back pack/traveler primarily designed for dads.

Let me know if you are interested. I will contact the previous panel that included BlackCat and MarinaVanessa. Thanks!

I'm sure one of these items would be fine for you to review without using it with kids. You have a lot of expertise.

Never know. It depends on the company that is spending the money on the products. I will let you know.

The restraining item needs providers that care for infants. We need we members here that have infants and are interested. I will post the items once I get that information.

I'm interested in the restraining item. That's going to have to be a miracle product. I will be able to tell the dangers toot sweet. Also have state regs that would prohibit it even if Jesus endorsed it

We have to be careful with anything in the bed or confines.

Well we could test a diaper bag. The deal for dads, I couldn't really get a male's opinion since DH is on the road in the semi so much. But we use bags a lot in our travels.

I keep infants, and currently have a newborn, but it would be against the law for me to try it (crib restraint) on clients children.

Parents could, though.

Yes and the one you want to test. Once I get 12 for an item I will only have the other items available. So the sooner you let me know, the better.

Also, I have a mom who is expecting in June. She would be a reliable and honest source to review the restraint item, if you can't find enough providers willing to try it. Even if I had infants, if would be against regs in Alabama.

I like doing product reviews, but don't have the need for any of those yet. Next time.

Sure,

I do not think anyone will have to write a review like an article. There maybe questions that you will need to answer or a survey type multiple choice. I did one before, here is how I had the panel answer. You can click on the NEXT button to see: http://www.daycare.com/nannyde/shockproof-safety-outlet


Most of the review will be put together by me. So this is going to be easier then you think and you get free stuff that you get to keep.

If we start getting lots of manufactures sending their products here and those that are in the panel now will really benefit. So, get on the panel while you can.

I can't help with the restraining product or back pack for Dads but if you need another person to review the diaper bag, I'd be willing to help.

I'm in. I could not use a restraining item as my infants are old enough to roll over but either of the other two I could review.

I don't have any infants scheduled until January, but I could do a diaper bag if you need anyone else.

Because of those restrictions here, you may make the cut

Also, I wonder if someone here in the States with their own infant child would consider testing it.

I need 12 testers for each product so you should be good for the diaper bag.

If we can't find enough testers for the infant restraint, you may get two products.

Everyone needs to PM me their name or businessname, address and preference.

And does the high tech backpack have to be done by a man?

Not sure if I qualify because I have only been on forum since October. However, I have a 4 month old infant and my husband works with me in our daycare. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

I have a parent who would probably be willing to test the restraint (1 or 2-she has twins). I would be willing to test it here, but I use pack n plays, not cribs.

You should be fine. I want to make sure that members who get these items contribute to the survey. Long time members are probably staying....

I have a lot of PM I haven't read yet so expect a PM reply. If you have not heard back from my in a few hours, let me know.

Remember, I need your name or business name and address. I will PM you as I know more but wanted to have the 36 members in place first.

I'd love to review a diaper bag. I've been shopping for one and haven't found what I'm looking for.
If spots are full, I'd love to be considered for the future.
Thank you!

The diaper bag may already have the 12 panelists needed but I will put you in for it anyway. Are you willing to take one of the other two products? PM me your name and address in any case.

We are close to the 36 members that are needed. I will take a more just in case someone is not available when we get the product. Also, I believe we could use a few more members for the infant restraint device. I am sending one to NannyDe even though she has no infants, I believe she could critique it with her experience.

I also have no infants, but 30+ years of experience, Michael, if you would like to send me one. I would be willing to critique it. I have similar concerns as Nanny about any restraint in a crib. Even if you don't want to send one, I would really like to see a picture and directions on how this is intended to work.

Well the advertiser might offer more diaper bags if we have extra testers. Also, what about the backpack?

I have about 40 of you. I sent you a PM requesting this information:

1) How many children are in your facility?

2) What is the adult/child ratio?

3) How many girls/boys

4) How many of you are also parents with young children?

I have an update for those of you participating in our product review panel. The Men's backpack will not be one of the items so we will go with 24 members. Here are the two other products for you to view. We are deciding whether to send both items to those that had a preference for both. Infants would need to be less than 6 months. So if you have any friends that could offer information on testing it we would consider that.

How does the restraint attach to the crib mattress? Is it a sleeve like attachment, or does it need to be fastened under the mattress?
It is also hard to tell how it attaches on top. Is that velcro or snaps?

My little one is 6 months right now! So I'm not sure it would work. I can review the diaper bag if you need more people!

I can do diaper bag. I would do the infant but I'm afraid licensing would object to it.

The diaper bag looks fantastic! I can't do the infant restrainer, due to regulations.

If I'm within the needed numbers I can do the diaper bag. I'd prefer to not do the restraint.

You are up late or are you up early? I already have you down for the diaper bag.

I can do the diaper bag.

Legally I cannot do the restraint although I can see it's value as a SIDS mom. I can see how well it would have worked when my kids were attached to the apnea/bradycardia monitors. I can also see EMS transport/Tube feeding applications. Pretty nifty.

If only it had ASTM approval.

Yes, and it does look like velcro on the top connection, but it also doesn't really look like it attaches to anything on the other side. So one sided velcro? And the other question would be how it attaches to the mattress.

I have had some pretty active little people over the years who could pull off working their way out of the top of that.
Just a touch too loose and the baby could wiggle out of the top, and worm their way under the connecting band of cloth on the mattress.
