Would you like my opinion?

My blog, From Dates to Diapers, is dedicated to giving family-friendly product reviews. My goal is to feature products made and/or sold by moms. I am looking for hip, chic, hand-crafted, unique items specifically found in mom-owned and operated online boutiques and shops.

If you are a mom who either makes OR sells fun items, PLEASE contact me. My readers have come to expect recommendations from me on tried and tested, quality products. I would love to work with you!

As a mother of six, I love to give my solicited opinion on every thing – And trust me, I have one! My family and I love to try new products, as well… So, if you have a product, specifically geared toward a hip and active mom, or children of various ages, that you would like to have honestly reviewed, please email me at christine@fromdatestodiapers.com.

Or, if you know of a product that you would like an honest opinion on, please let me know – I would be happy to tell you what I think!

Here is a bit about me and my family:

Ray and I have been married for fifteen years.

Our children are:
Ethan and Zach – twins – 14 years old
Julia – our only daughter – 13 years old
Joshua – 11 years old
Benjamin – 9 years old
Noah – 7 years old
Timmy – 4 years old

Product Reviews

If you are a PR rep for products that you think our readers should know about, someone who makes products that are simply awesome, or an indie designer looking to get the word out about your amazing product, we would love to hear from you!

We are more than happy to post product reviews and/or reader giveaways. Our readers have come to appreciate our recommendations and are thrilled when we tell them about a wonderful product!

So, tell us about it!


Send us an email at fromdatestodiapers@gmail.com describing the product you would like to submit for a giveaway or review, include a link to your website, and please specify to which age group the item best appeals. We just recently changed our review policies, so make sure you inquire about current pricing. We also do require a sample for all reviews. The sample will not be returned, and you will be responsible for any shipping costs involved.

Unfortunately we are unable to reply to every request… If we would like to review your product, we will contact you as soon as we can, with an address to send samples and/or reader prizes.

As we are currently experiencing a 2 month review backlog, we will then send you 2 emails:

  1. A confirmation we received your product
  2. An email linking to our product reviews, or alerting you of our decision not to post

Please note: Decisions to post are based on the quality of your product, thus the review of some products may not be posted because they simply do not resonate with our bloggers or work for our families. Moreover, we are incredibly candid in the reviews we post, and while we aim not to openly disparage any products, we do often sometimes critique products just as we praise others. We aim for balanced and thoughtful reviews.


Though we are open to most anything, we especially love companies, products, and services that appeal to family life and are non-toxic, safe, and fun.
I often have family members and close friends review products as guest posts on From Dates to Diapers. That said, we (collectively) have children in the following age groups:

1 boy and 1 girl, 2 year old
4 boys and 2 girls, between 4 years and 13 years
2 boys, twins, age 14


We look forward to hearing about your products!
