I love Gerber products, food, and their clothing line and have really enjoyed being a part of the Gerber Real Mom Community. It’s nice to be able to ask questions and get quick responses as well as the coupons that Gerber posts, the contests which are a lot of fun, and being able to talk to other moms,” said Weikle.
Her design will serve as ‘inspiration’ for a Onesies® Brand Underwear design within the 2012 Gerber Attitude Onesies® Brand Collection. Weikle also receives a $350 Amazon.com gift card and is featured on Gerber Childrenswear’s Facebook Real Mom Community page. Weikle’s Grand Prize winning design was chosen by Gerber Childrenswear based on design originality and the feedback received by the community.
