05 Jan Hello, TeeterTot!
During the summer of 2016 I came up with the idea to start a tot product review site. After lots of hard work, TeeterTot was born and the site launched in November 2016. You may be wondering what sets TeeterTot apart from other product review sites in the infant and toddler space. Like many of you, I had a folder full of dozens of blogs to help me stay up-to-date with the best and newest products. Then I came up with an idea to help other moms spend less time on research and more time getting the sleep they need in order to keep up with their energetic kiddos – an information hub for all things baby! The reviews are written by moms, for moms.
I became interested in (ok, maybe borderline obsessed with) figuring out what supplies, gear and toys my husband and I needed to provide for the most important people in our lives – our children. After putting the kids to bed, I used to stay up late at night researching the various options. I especially appreciate thorough reviews and am looking for some of the best mom bloggers from around the world to share in detail about their experiences with infant and toddler products they have personally and thoroughly used. Instead of two or three-sentence reviews of products that perhaps have only been looked over or tried briefly, we will get down to the nitty gritty. So say goodbye to the days of digging through your bookmarks to find the right blog for a specific product or reading through 50 two-sentence reviews that don’t cover the questions you have.

Are you interested in becoming a contributor? We are currently looking for new bloggers to contribute original content to TeeterTot. At this time there are a couple of ways you can become a writer for TeeterTot. Our website is dedicated to providing high quality and comprehensive product reviews for tots. Do you enjoy writing posts about your favorite baby or toddler products? Are there any products that you love and want to share with other moms? Are there items that have made your life easier? What products can you not live without? Or maybe you purchased a new item that hasn’t lived up to your expectations or that you ended up being disappointed in? We’d love to hear from you, as our goal is to help all moms (and dads) find the best products for their families.
If writing product reviews isn’t your thing, we are also looking for original blog posts in categories that include motherhood, parenting, family, and lifestyle. We really hope that moms who visit our site can find great information that will educate, encourage, and possibly make them laugh, in addition to the thorough product reviews.
If you are interested in writing for us, please fill out our contributor request form.
Here at TeeterTot we value your time and realize that there are many opportunities available to you as a blogger. Writing a thoughtful, informative, and well-written post takes a lot of work and that doesn’t go unnoticed to us. We are excited to announce that starting January 1, 2017, we are going to pay our writers! Payment will be determined by the number of unique post views, which will be calculated 30 days after your post goes live. TeeterTot will send payments via PayPal 30-60 days after thresholds have been met.
TeeterTot.com will promote your posts on our social media platforms and we ask that you do the same. The more that your post gets noticed and shared, the more potential you have to earn payment!
Please keep in mind that TeeterTot has the right to decide which posts to publish on our site. Only original content will be eligible for payment. You may submit previously published posts, though they will not be eligible for compensation. We will include a link on TeeterTot to the original source of the previously published article. When submitting posts for publication you are verifying that TeeterTot has the right to publish your submission.
Here are a couple of FAQs that you may find helpful as you consider whether you’d be a good fit for the TeeterTot family. For additional information, please see our full list of FAQ’s.
Are TeeterTot contributors compensated?
Yes! We are excited to announce that starting January 1, 2017, we are going to pay our writers! In addition to payment, contributors are recognized at the end of their post with a brief bio and link to their blog and social media accounts. For more information, please see our Write for TeeterTot page.
What are the TeeterTot standards for product review submissions?
Your product review should aim to include 500-1000 words, as the goal of the TeeterTot site is to provide parents with the most in depth reviews as possible. We realize that some products may be able to have more written about them than others. For example, it’s likely going to be difficult to write a 500 word post on your favorite diaper cream, while it may be hard to limit yourself to 1000 words when writing about your stroller system. Our best recommendation is for you to use your best judgment!
Each review should include only one product. At this time, submissions that include multiple products in one post will not be accepted, as the format is not suited to our site. For instance, if you have written a blog post comparing two products or your “Top 5 Bathtub Toys,” you will need to submit separate posts for each product. With that being said, you will not be required to change your original post on your personal blog, as we will link back to that for readers to see.
Your submission should be well written, spell-checked, and edited to the best of your ability. Our goal is to have quality reviews!
Please visit the manufacturer’s website so that you are providing readers with accurate, detailed information for the “Overview” section of your TeeterTot submission.
All reviews must include at least one stock photo of the product. Please make sure that your photos are high quality. Our goal is to have a site that stands out above the rest!
What types of product reviews are going to be published on the TeeterTot site?
We are looking for submissions that will fit under one of our product review categories: Feeding, Nursery, Play, Bath, On-The-Go, and Health+Safety.
Is it possible to submit a sponsored blog post to TeeterTot that I have completed for a company?
Absolutely! We encourage this as long as it does not go against the terms of the company that you’re working with. If your review is original and only published on your blog it is eligible for compensation from TeeterTot. The way we see it, why not try to get as much as possible for yourself out of a single post?! Please see our Terms and Conditions for further information.
Does TeeterTot accept original blog posts for publication that are not product reviews?
Yes! If writing product reviews isn’t your thing, we are also looking for original blog posts in categories that include motherhood, parenting, family, and lifestyle. We really hope that moms who visit our site can find great information that will educate, encourage, and possibly make them laugh, in addition to the thorough product reviews. For more information, please see our Write for TeeterTot page.
This website has awesome potential and we’d love to have experienced mom bloggers join our TeeterTot family!
