Spectra S1 Double Breast Pump with Tote & Cooler Giveaway, Ends 10/20

Did you know that many insurance companies will now cover a brand new breast pump for expecting and new parents? That's right! There's no need to spend hundreds of dollars out-of-pocket for a new pump. A new, name-brand breast pump can be yours and there are services out there that will do all the work for you - including billing insurance and shipping the pump to you for free. Edwards Health Care Services is one of these organizations and they believe that all women should have access to breastfeeding equipment. So, they make the process of obtaining a breast pump simple. All you have to do is fill out their online form or give them a call. One of their Breast Pump Concierges will take care of verifying your insurance, getting a prescription from your doctor and communicating with your insurance company on your behalf. Once they verify the order with you, they'll ship the breast pump for free right to your door. Easy, right?!

World Breastfeeding Week Giveaway, Ends 8/15

August 1st through August 7th is 2016's World Breastfeeding Week. 2016's theme is about how breastfeeding is a key element in getting us to think about how to value our wellbeing from the start of life, how to respect each other and care for the world we share. My breastfeeding journey has been one of the most precious times of my life.

Supporting a mother who chooses to breastfeeding their child is key to their success. When a nursing mother is judged, shamed, denied time or a place to feed their baby it is not only effecting that child's growth but that mother's mindset of their breastfeeding experience. This week highlights a women choice to breastfeed and all things that go along with that choice.

Hey breastfeeding mamas! Fall is right around the corner which means all the fun activities! With both of my kids, my supply seemed to drop around the holidays. I'm not sure why, maybe because I didn't nurse as often because we were always on the go. But whatever the reason, I would have loved to try Mrs. Patel's breastfeeding products to give my supply a little boost.

The Importance of Taking a Prenatal {#AVASIAPrenatal Vitamins Review}

This is a sponsored review brought to you by AVASIA Prenatal Vitamins. All opinions are my own.

When should you start taking a prenatal?
You should start taking them before you are pregnant, like when you are trying to conceive. But if this isn't an option, start taking them as soon as you find out you are pregnant. The folic acid element is particularly important at this stage and in your first trimester.

Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap Review + Discount

I have always been shy about nursing in public. I have large breasts and I don't want a whole lot of skin showing. It's a personal preference. I would never judge the way someone else chooses to feed their baby, this is just for my body. I know that I SHOULD be able to feed my baby whenever he needs to be fed, including out in public. But the reality is that I don’t want unwelcome attention.

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.


When is a nursing cover not a nursing cover? Answer ... when it's a Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap. You can literally wear it straight out of its stylish packaging. It's easy to wash and dry and it keeps its shape. You can carry this wrap in your purse or diaper bag because it folds up really small and does not crease. My sister-in-law is due with her second baby this month and I'm making a breastfeeding care package for her. I have decided to include this beautiful wrap in it.
