This blog is a collaborative blog written by a group of individuals. For questions about this blog, please contact us via our form.
This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. If we do accept any form of payment, we will state so in the blog post. We do not attempt to conceal or hide our sponsorships.
The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.
The owner(s) of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
As Amazon affiliates, we may earn a commission if you purchase any items using our links.
Affiliate Link Policy
We sometimes publish affiliate links on MDM, which means we receive a small commission from a retailer if you decide to make a purchase after clicking through to them via these links.
This affiliate scheme does not influence our editorial policy in any way.
Sponsored Content Policy
Sometimes we post sponsored content on MDM. Sponsored posts are clearly marked as such and are written with input from an advertising partner.
MDM staff have the final say on sponsored post content and any such advertising deals have no influence on our editorial policy.
Modern Day Moms took the Blog With Integrity pledge. What does that mean? Well, we signed the pledge, we assert that the trust of our readers is important to us. We also feel that the blogging community is important to us. We treat others respectfully, we do not attack people. We welcome respectful disagreement with our own ideas. We believe in intellectual property rights, providing links, citing sources, and crediting inspiration where appropriate. We disclose our material relationships, policies and business practices. Our readers will know the difference between editorial, advertorial, and advertising, should we choose to have it. If we do sponsored or paid posts, they are clearly marked at the bottom so that you will know. When collaborating with marketers and PR professionals, we handle ourselves professionally and abide by basic journalistic standards. We always present our honest opinions to the best of our ability. We own our words.
In case you were wondering, all opinions of products are strictly our own. We review products for the sole purpose of letting other moms know what we think, not for the enjoyment of getting a free product. We review the products as we test them out or as we’ve seen them tested. Most of the products reviewed here on this site are provided by us personally and are products we have in our own homes. When a company offers to giveaway a product on our site, we make sure we support that product and would use it ourselves. We wouldn’t want to feature something on this site that we aren’t fans of ourselves.
Below are our giveaway guidelines. With all the giveaways we have going on, and will continue to provide, we felt it was necessary to include guidelines not only for ourselves but for the participants.
