If you’re expecting or know someone who is, invite your friends to guess the babys gender, arrival date, and birth weight. Once the baby is born, enter the baby’s info to find out whose guess was most accurate, and they’re the lucky winner! Winners and game hosts earn 4moms Insider Points, which can be redeemed for discounts on 4moms products (like the mamaRoo). Setting up a game is quick, easy, and free. Visit to get started!
