It’s National Breastfeeding Awareness week this week, and you know I couldn’t let it pass by silently.
I have three breastfeeding related competitions for you today, all from companies I’ve featured here before.
First up there’s BoobieMilk, who sells beautiful, functional and practical maternity and breastfeeding underwear. The reason I love BoobieMilk is because Karen, who owns the business, will come to your house (selected regions) to do a proper brafitting for you. With my first I never thought that was an essential part of having a baby. It was really only after my first ever decently fitted bra that I realised the difference it could make to your appearance, your self-image and most of all your comfort!

Second, we have BabyBeadsUK, who make lovely breastfeeding necklaces and reminder bracelets, and sell breast pads, feeding pillows and booby boosters as well as a range of other baby products. Jo has worked with me every NBAW since I started Diary of a First Child, and I’m happy to support her again as her business grows. Breastfeeding necklaces are a god-send when you have grabby babies with razor like nails, and again later when they start tweaking your nipples and again still later, when baby is a playful toddler with hands that need occupying so as not to pinch you! (Oh, and I’ve also found a breastfeeding necklace to be a great tool for distracting a young baby – sort of like a mobile!) BabyBeadsUK necklaces have been safety tested and conform to BS EN71 (1995) + A1 +AC1 Part 3, EN71 (2005) A9 Part 1 & EN71 (2005) Part 1 standards. They are intended for adult wear, and babies can play with them under supervision.

The third competition for you this National Breastfeeding Awareness Week is from Mama Jewels, who focus solely on breastfeeding jewellery. Breastfeeding bracelets are especially helpful for first time mums, or mums nursing again after a break, who need help remembering which side to feed from in the early weeks. Thereafter it’s just nice to have something to play with, something to entertain with and something pretty on your arm. Most importantly, Mama Jewels are toddler proof, so you can still wear jewellery despite motherhood.
