Capturing Shared Moments With Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons

We have a special place in our hearts for chocolate and we’ve really enjoyed working closely with one of our favourite brands, Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons to create not only some incredible content about all those special moments that happen every day as a parent, but also to create something that’s a bit of a digital first in the world of parenting videos.

It’s all to celebrate the launch of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Button’s Memory Lane tool and we’ve been working  with 100 mum vloggers, asking them to share with us some of their very special shared moments as a mum.

From that morning cuddle to the little things that always bring a smile (when they say, “Mummy I love you”), mums have been opening up their hearts to us and telling us about those ‘awww’ moments that they share with their children every day. After all, life isn’t just about the big things, it’s about finding everyday happiness.

Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 15.09.48

If you haven’t seen them yet, watch these amazing videos about Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Button’s Memory Lane and find out how you can make your own too.

The Cadbury Dairy Milk Button’s Memory Lane tool is special – it uses clever 360 degree technology which you personalise by uploading photos of you and your little ones. It’s a lovely way to look back on all those special pics from your camera roll and see them in the context of your very own “memory lane”. It’s a fun summer holiday activity to show your children!

Seeing all of the videos go live and hearing about everyone’s special moments, makes us realise how lucky we are to have the privilege of being mums – but it also makes us realise just how amazing it is to harness mum power to all come together with a message – about enjoying those everyday shared moments of motherhood.

After all, it goes by much too fast.

As part of our partnership with Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons we have a wonderful competition to tell you about too! You could win one of five state of the art video cameras and of course, a delicious box of Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons. Fancy winning that? We do!

How To Enter

All you have to do is create your own personal Memory Lane by visiting http://www.buttonsmemorylane.co.uk and share your video using the hashtag #ButtonsMemoryLane and tag @channelmum on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for your chance to WIN one of five state of the art video cameras and a box of Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons. The competition ends on 30th September and all our usual terms and conditions apply.

Good luck!

PS, We’ve got an exciting, prize filled Twitter party coming up soon on Wednesday 24th August from 11am – 12pm so don’t forget to join us there for even more amazing competition giveaways. More info coming soon!

GOOD LUCK and see you Friday!

Did you win? Scan competition winner announced here!

There’s nothing more special that seeing your baby for the first time and the incredible technology behind 4D scans means you’re able to do just that, before they’re even born.

competition winner

4D scans show moving 3D images of your baby in the womb, so you can see their little face and body in real time. It’s pretty special. You can watch our week by week video featuring some amazing scan footage here.

Hearing your baby’s heartbeat is also an unforgettable and precious moment for any mother and heart beat teddies allow you to have your baby’s heartbeat recorded and put inside the teddy for your baby hear later on.

Our incredibly popular scan competition with WindowToTheWomb gave away just that, a 4D scan and heart beat teddy, and we have to say we were overwhelmed with all your entries, sharing first scan photos, due dates and excited comments from mums to be.

We particularly loved how pregnant friends were also tagged in the competition too. It’s a lovely prize to be able to win and we’re sure our winner will have a really wonderful experience.

This is such a special prize and we’re delighted to announce that Stacey Louise Hillhouse on Facebook is our lucky winner.

If you didn’t win this time, not to worry, we have lots more exciting prizes planned soon, like us on Facebook to keep up to date!

Cadbury competition winners – was it you?

Thanks to everyone who entered the Cadbury competition we ran recently, offering you the chance to win a state of the art camera and a box of Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons.

We asked you to share special moments with your little ones and we were so touched by the hundreds of heartfelt memories you shared with us. From little moments of tenderness between siblings to momentous events like first cuddles with newborns and first family holidays, it really reminded us just how many special moments there are as we raise our families.

Congratulations to our worthy winners:

Everything you need to know about scans – and more!

If you hadn’t guessed already, trying to make life easier for mums is something we’re passionate about here at Channel Mum HQ. That’s why we’ve launched the Channel Mum Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy Scans to help demystify the world of ultrasound scans and to show you what to expect.

Our Ultimate Pregnancy Scan Guide shows you what happens during your ultrasound scan, the different kinds of scans you can have and follows our vlogger Emily having a private scan at 28 weeks at Window To The Womb. You can see her have a 2D, 3D and 4D scan and even see how the gender of her baby is identified. Is it a boy or a girl? Watch the video to find out!

Side note: Did you know you could find out the gender of your baby from as early as 16 weeks?

We’ve even included a fruit diary of how your baby grows rapidly from something smaller than a poppyseed to the size of a watermelon in nine months.

Scans are such a momentous part of any pregnancy and such a special time for you and your partner to finally get a glimpse at what’s going on in your tummy and listen to your baby’s heartbeat.

If you’re anything like us, during your pregnancy you’ll be searching high and low to try and see what your baby looks like at each week of pregnancy, so we feel pretty lucky to have been able to secure footage of 2D, 3D and 4D real scans from our lovely friends at Window To The Womb.

If you’re expecting a baby or curious about what each week of pregnancy can be like, make sure you check out our pregnancy week by week guides for more pregnancy videos from mums at the same stage as you are, all the way through your pregnancy.

To celebrate our Ultimate Pregnancy Scan Guide going live we’ve got a fab competition with a chance for you to win a ‘Born To Be A Star’ scan package from Window To The Womb with a 4D Baby Scan package and a Heartbeat Teddy Bear (worth £119).

So if you fancy having a 4D scan where you can see moving 3D images of your baby and have their heartbeat recording put inside a teddy bear, then don’t miss your chance to enter.

Precious moments plus our favourite chocolate

We’re all partial to a bit of chocolate here at Channel Mum HQ so  we’ve been delighted to partner with Cadbury Buttons and we’ve been busy getting our team and the Channel Mum network creating heart-warming videos around the really precious shared moments that mums have with their children. You know, the everyday things that are actually pretty important.Enter to win Cadbury Buttons

We’ve been making vlogs capturing  favourite family moments, and to be honest, watching all the content has made us stop and take the time to reflect on those special things that mean a lot. Beyond just spreading the Cadbury Buttons joy, this campaign has actually made us take a breath and realise how lucky we are to have ‘mum’ as our most important job title.

From reading stories at bedtime to morning snuggles, the chaos of family breakfasts and exploring nature together, the ordinary can really be extraordinary sometimes.

If you see Precious Shared Moments popping up do have a look, if you’re anything like us you’ll feel well and truly warm and fuzzy inside once you’ve heard our mums share the small things. You might even see the Channel Mum team while you’re out and about – we’re so proud our mums are heading up the Cadbury Buttons billboard campaign!

Competition!

To celebrate all the amazing videos we’ve got an exciting competition for you to enter.

The Prize
We’re giving away five fabulous prize bundles containing a state of the art digital camera worth over £150 and a box of delicious Cadbury Buttons.

How to Enter
We’d love to see your precious shared moments with you and your family.
