Earn While You Learn

What is it?
Earn While You Learn is a unique program for pregnant women and new moms or dads. The program is free. The Earn While You Learn Program is designed to help you be the best parent you can be! You will learn what to expect during your pregnancy and beyond. For your participation you will earn “Mommy Bucks”, credits that can be used to purchase baby care items from our store, from formula to baby clothes or furniture.

How do I earn Mommy Bucks?
You will schedule an appointment to come in and watch a DVD on pregnancy or parenting. We have DVDs on many different subjects and we will make sure the DVD you watch is a good fit for you. You earn ONE Mommy buck for each visit, ONE for watching a DVD, ONE for doing your homework. You may shop in the boutique directly after you watch your DVD or you can choose to save your Mommy bucks to purchase a more costly item later.
