Our Mommyhood and a Giveaway

A brand-new site for mom bloggers launched today!

How is it different from the other sites out there?

Besides the fact that I will have a post there twice a month, of course. ;)

There will be posts from moms of all different walks of life on all the different aspects of our lives. How awesome to hear so many different viewpoints!

It's also going to be the go-to place to find out about blog events.

Have a meme? Or just looking for one to participate in? They will be on our calendar!

I already submitted a bunch of the ones that you host for the calendar because I love you. You're welcome.

And, of course, there will be ways for you to connect with other bloggers and to promote your own blog!

You don't want to miss out!


Now, on to a new giveaway- with five winners!

I recently wrote a guest post about breastfeeding for The Stork Report and shared all the info that I wish I had known when I was first trying to breastfeed.

Please don't run away just because you don't breastfeed or don't have a baby in the house- think: baby shower/new mom gift that you can have on hand for when you next need it!

Something that I had with my second and third babies was called a Milk Band. I wish I had known about them with my first baby!

They are bracelets that help you keep track of feedings. They are reversible, with "Left" on one side and "Right" on the other, to help you remember which side to start on at the next feeding.

You think you'd remember, but sleep-deprivation does crazy things to new moms.

There are also sliders on the bracelet, which you can use to keep track of the time of the last feeding or the duration of the feeding.

Not breastfeeding? You can still use them to keep track of the time of the last feeding or count dirty diapers.

Much easier and more convenient than trying to write it down somewhere or trying to remember without any help.

Milk Bands, a husband and wife-run business, sent me five of these AND two nursing covers. I told them how much I had LOVED their milk bands and that I thought that you all would be interested in them.

There will be five winners:

TWO Grand Prize Winners will win an Udder Cover and a Milk Band

THREE Winners will win a Milk Band

These are fabulous as a unique shower gift or to take to a new mom right after she has her baby.
A lot more useful than yet another precious newborn outfit. ;)

To enter:

Mandatory entry: Visit Milk Bands and tell me what color milk band you like(I can't promise that will be the color you will get, but go look at their selection)

Additional entries: I'm going to keep this giveaway really simple- I was just going to do one entry per person, but, because I really think that you will like Our Mommyhood, if you go check it out and follow, you can have an additional entry.

Giveaway ends Saturday 3/13 at 9pm EST
Your email must be in your profile or left with your comment to win.

*I just got home from Bloggy Bootcamp and will be back tomorrow, catching up on all I missed on your blogs!

Comments are now closed.

I am all done with my nursing days, but have a dear friend who's expecting her first. I love the "classic black" - goes with anything! She's having a girl, though, and I bet would love one of the sweet pink or lilac ones.

The friend I'm thinking of would like the green one. Wish I would have had these!!!! I called myself everytime I started feeding so I would have it logged on my cell phone. :)

I have an Udder Cover and it makes nursing in public SO much easier!

I heard about these just after I stopped breast feeding my little munchkin and wished I had one!!! I'm planning on having #2 this year and would LOVE one and possibly a nursing cover... :)

Yay!! I'm glad your back from bloggy boot camp! I missed you!!

Oh and I checked it out and although I am usually ALL FOR PINK, I would pick the GREEN one!! :)

This is so funny! Today I was thinking about a pregnant friend of mine and decided that I need to get her a milk band and udder cover because I love and depend on mine so much! HAHA!
I would LOVE to win!
I guess should would probably like a purple milk band.

Those milk bands are so cool! I wish I had one when I was nursing Buster. My BFF is preggo, so this would be great for her.

I think I'll go with the green. That's a nice neutral color. The dark ones are kind of hard to read.

This would be perfect for my BFF Becky who is expecting her third child in late July.
I think we would want green since we have no idea if she is having a boy or girl yet.

March 8, 2010 at 9:21 AM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Like the green or yellow ones. Since the first two babies stole my brain entirely, I'm pretty sure this third one isn't gonna give me a fighting chance...I need all the help I can get!

I really like the pink one, but then if I had another kiddo and it was a boy...so I'm saying the green is my favorite.
