American Baby Magazine Submission Writers Guidelines = Fit Pregnancy and Baby


SUPER FRESH INFO AND BIG NEWS ABOUT AMERICAN BABY! 
I just got this info from over here at Writer's Digest!!! And here's more updated info from Publishers Daily! Basically with this February 2016 issue, American Baby is no more and has merged with Fit Pregnancy to form ...

Here are the submission guidelines from their website! You will also find these in the 7th edition of my book, Make Money to Write About Your Kids: Get Published in Regional, National & Online Parenting & Family Magazines. You can find the 6th edition here on Kindle (huge sale!) and in print version. You can download it FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited! You can also wait for the 7th edition to come out in a month or two and keep on writing and pitching queries in the meantime!
FIT PREGNANCY  is a website covering health, nutrition, exercise, psychology, food, fashion and beauty issues related to pregnancy. It also includes editorial for parents of babies up to 2 years of age.
