Makers of Orajel(TM) Invite Parents to Share Their Child's Smiling Milestone

Win a Family Vacation in the OrajelTM Smilestones Facebook Photo Contest

EWING, NJ--(May 7, 2014) - As the protector of children's smiles, no one knows the importance of early oral health more than OrajelTM -- the No. 1 teething brand recommended by pediatricians. The OrajelTM complete product line helps children through the teething, training and early brushing stages. To celebrate the importance of a healthy smile, the makers of OrajelTM in partnership with BabyCenter, invite parents to submit their child's "Smilestone" or smiling milestone to the OrajelTM Smilestones Photo Contest for the chance to win a luxury all-inclusive Caribbean vacation that gives the whole family a reason to smile.

Now through June 18, 2014, parents can visit the BabyCenter Facebook page  to upload a photo and brief description of their child's Smilestone. These smiling moments can be significant, happy milestones that children1achieve throughout their early development -- whether its baby's first steps, their first big-kid bed or a milestone at preschool -- that put a smile on both kids' and parents' faces.

Nine finalists will be chosen from the entries2, and a public vote will commence on the Orajel Smilestones Photo Contest Facebook page from June 27 through July 11 to determine the grand-prize winner. The grand-prize winner will receive a Luxury Included® family vacation to the Beaches® Resorts destination of their choice in Jamaica or Turks & Caicos, along with an OrajelTM prize pack valued at $200. Eight runners-up will receive a $100 Target gift card, along with an OrajelTM prize pack.
