Lean on the recognizable stars of The Cat in the Hat to make your Halloween pregnancy announcement. You can pull this off by surprising folks with just your get up (“Thing One” emblazoned on your chest and “Thing Two” on your belly), or get a partner in the mix to add a third “Thing.” (And someday down the road, you can revisit this idea as a family or sibling Halloween costume!)

This time next year, you might just feel as dead as you look in this picture. Kidding... sort of. Happy Halloween to all the parents-to-be! 

Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to enter the walking-dead-like ranks of sleep deprived parents! SNOO automatically calms crying and adds 1-2 hours of sleep a night for exhausted moms and dads!
