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.
