Frequently Asked Questions

How does a review and giveaway work?

For a review, I do require a product sample, which is not to be returned, so that I can experience the product for myself and write an honest review. I do my best to point out all of the positive parts of the product and the company. I also include a direct link to the company’s main website and product’s site if applicable. The giveaways run for 2 weeks and I prefer to have the company ship the prize directly to the winner.

Will you email me when your review is posted?

Once the review is posted, I will email you the link to the review. I’ll do my best to keep you updated (reviews posted, winner’s information).

Do you charge to advertise on your site?

If you would like to advertise on my site, please email me for rates and placement on The Mommy-Files.  Payment is accepted through Paypal.
