BreastVest Giveaway

The Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt event is starting tomorrow and will last all week. To get us off to a great start, I am launching the week with a giveaway from BreastVest! Throughout the week there will be more chances to enter for the grand prize bundle across all participating blogs and I will be posting up about the benefits of breastfeeding, breastfeeding in public, and breastfeeding at over 1 year old. I will also be linking up to lots of other blogs and companies who are joining in!

BreastVest are supporting the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt this year as they have done in previous years. There is currently a 25% code for their website which is BSH25 and will be running until the end of the month. In addition to this they will be adding a different code every day during the Scavenger Hunt so do keep an eye on their Facebook and Twitter! (you will have options to follow them as part of the Rafflecopter when you enter)

Throughout June, BreastVest are also selling limited issue grey breastvests in aid of the Lullaby Trust, which supports grieving parents whose babies have been lost to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and also provides safe sleeping information. All of the profits from the sale of grey breastvests during June will be donated to them.

If you have not heard of BreastVest before, here is a quick explanation of the idea. It is something very handy to have for any breastfeeding mum!

Breastvest is a simple yet ingenious item of breastfeeding underwear which makes any top a breastfeeding top and makes breastfeeding in public easier.

Designed, tested and approved by breastfeeding mums, breastvest is held in place by straps and scoops just below your nursing bra, completely covering the postnatal tummy so mums can lift up whatever top they are wearing to feed their babies, safe in the knowledge that breastvest has them covered.

breastvest lets mums get back into their favourite clothes sooner, letting them breastfeed whenever, wherever and wearing whatever they want with confidence. 

It was invented by now mum-of-two Sam Telfer when she was breastfeeding her first baby, Fred. Frustrated by the lack of wardrobe choice she had – especially after what seemed like an eternity in maternity wear – Sam ruined a succession of her favourite pre-pregnancy tops by stretching the necklines to feed her baby. 

Yes, she was desperate to get back into her favourite clothes… but the prospect of exposing the tummy her baby left behind provoked terror in equal measure. After searching for what she needed with no results, she made one herself and breastvest was born.
Thousands of mums all over the world are now enjoying the benefits which come built into breastvest… and when Sam had her second baby, Georgie, she was beyond proud to be one of them!
Available at www.breastvest.co.uk and a wide selection of independent stockists in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

  1. Nothing can prepare you for the cluster feeding in the first weeks, but the work and lack of sleep all comes good at about 6 weeks. It is worth it 🙂

  2. It’s hard at the beginning but so worth it! Get loads of advice and support and know that people are there to help 🙂

  3. I found in the early days when i was struggling my partner was a great support, without him i would not have continued, but now here I am with almost 3.5 years across two children under my belt.

    Having someone close who understand breastfeeding and can support you is very valuable

  4. Breastfeeding is the hardest thing I’ve ever done – but one of the best too. A couple of months of struggling and crying A LOT (me and baby!) were totally worth it as I am still feeding 18 months on.

  5. I am finally at that point where breastfeeding isn’t something I’m doing every 5 mins for hours on end and is finally enjoyable. It is also the time that my lo wants to do it less and less and I’m thinking at nearly 9 months this is all happening far too soon and I don’t want to be near the end of this part of our relationship. Having spent the best part of 6/7 months teling myself this won’t be forever I’m now wishing that it wasn’t forever but lasted longer than it will!

  6. I’m so, SO glad I sick with it though the painful, exhausting early days. The rewards for doing so ever since have been many!

  7. Did just post but had issues. So as not to completely repeat myself just in case the previous post worked. Life is fleeting, your career as a breastfeeding mum is fleeting, do not spend most of it worrying about stuff and just enjoy!

  8. Surround yourself with supportive people and other mums who have breastfed, it can be very hard and support is key. Whether online, friends or family, it all helps.

  9. Although I think it’s important to inform new mums that initiating breastfeeding isn’t always easy, I think it’s also important to tell them that it often is very easy too! They may struggle and that’s when the right support is key, but it’s not difficult for everyone, some have no problems whatsoever. It isn’t a certainty that it will be difficult…

  10. I have fed my two sons and never had any negative comments when feeding in public – only positive comments and help.

  11. Before leaving the hospital get someone to check for tongue tie. I had a rough start as my little girl had difficulty latching leading to cracked, sore and bleeding nipples which I think was due to her having a tongue tie

  12. I agree it is the best option but I do feel that midwives can be complete nazis about it. I ended up pumping for 3 months (VERY tiring) because I lost all confidence from the way they hoisted & pushed me around.

  13. in my experience ill say don’t let anyone let you question your own milk supply!! If your baby in producing plenty of wet and dirty nappies your doing just fine 🙂 the high feeding demand will soon flatten out to a nice pattern 🙂

  14. I think the important thing to remember is that you know your baby best and nobody else has the right to tell you whats best for your baby,

  15. I’m going to read what everyone has written as my journey starts in the next couple of weeks. I’m expecting twins in the next couple of weeks.

  16. I have been surprised at how judgemental people can be, especially other mums. My choices aren’t a rejection or judgement of the choices that they have made for them and their little ones, however they still feel that they can pass comment as they like – I was recently told by a mum of three that breastfeeding beyond 6 months was “disgusting”. Luckily these types are the exception rather than the rule and I’m not going to let their obvious issues affect my choices.

    • People can be idiots sometimes! You will never please everyone so I feel just ignore them and do whatever you want as either way there will be someone who would moan!

  17. I feel I have struggled with everything- cracked nipples, 9 weeks of thrush, people tutting in public, and also reflux. However my little boy is thriving despite health professionals telling me to go onto formula. We have broken the barrier and enjoying it so much. To anyone ready to give up please just give it a few more days or contact a support network- I did and its the best thing I’ve done for my little boy x

  18. I wasn’t prepared for how difficult I would find it at the start but so glad I continued, I have much respect for anyone that gives it a go

  19. Breast feeding can be very tiring and time consuming but is so worth it, it is lovely to be so close to your baby (if you are able to, or choose to feed this way). I do believe it is personal choice and hope no-one feels pressured either way, some people have very strong opinions on this.

  20. I loved breastfeeding it was and is a wonderful experience that just cant be fully explained unless you experience it. I have now been breastfeeding my youngest for 15 months and I can’t wait to keep going.

  21. don’t be afraid to ask for advice, don’t be worried to feed your baby in public you become a pro after a couple of weeks and no one see’s anything

  22. I took the first 3-4 weeks each day at a time. I really wanted to breastfeed, but found it so relentless and I was soooo tired!! I’m 13 weeks on now and wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m so glad I stuck at it and very thankful for my super supportive husband.

  23. You may need to be as stubborn as hell to get through the first few weeks, if you have problems – but it is so worth it!

  24. It wasn’t easy to begin with, but the baby reaps loads of benefits with it as breast is best. Don’t be afraid to breastfeed in public, remember to apply breast creams any time your nipples are sore or tender this will help prevent the cracking as a lot of people do stop when this happens so try your best to prevent it from happening by applying the cream every time when sore. Also don’t be afraid to express the milk into baby bottles so that daddy can take over too and give you a much needed rest especially at bed time hours 😉 x

  25. Breastfeeding is a wonderful time you and baby enjoy together. My little girl is 4 months and I treasure feeding her and am making the most of it.

  26. Nursing scarfs were fantastic as it made us feel cosy and protected from onlookers. My son has autism and I believe the breastfeeding has helped us bond and at times when he was poorly.
