Freebies from the Crib: Peekaboobaby
I apologize for the lack of freebies in August. You can all blame it on my move. But, we have got some good ones lined up for the next few months so keep your eyes peeled! This month, our freebie comes from Peekaboobaby, a company that makes and sells "hip nursing covers for moms on the go".
No matter which side of the "women's right to flash their breasts in public to feed their child" debate you may fall, I think every breastfeeding woman sometimes finds herself in a place where a cover might make her feel a little more comfortable breastfeeding in a public place.
Peekaboobaby was started by Julie Silvey, a momtrepreneur of four with one on the way. She began making stylish (yet oh so practical) nursing covers a couple years ago as gifts for all her mommy friends and got such a fantastic response that she decided to turn her private gift giving racket into a small business.
These nursing covers provide hands free coverage even during the sometimes tricky "latch-on" while also providing discreet viewing for mother only. Say goodbye to crazy breastfeeding contortions! The high quality, hand-picked designer fabrics and extra large terry pocket (good for holding anything from a nursing pad to a cell phone and wiping baby's mouth) make PEEKABOOKBABY covers unique.
Packaged in darling organza gift bags, these covers make great gifts, especially for that
And if the fantastic product isn't enough to make you love Peekaboobaby, Julie also gives back to moms in need. When her best friend used a Peekaboobaby everyday for eight months in the hospital as she pumped (using a double pump) for her baby, Curran, who was fighting a battle with infant leukemia, Julie realized what a lifesaver her covers could be. They allow mothers with sick children to stay by their bedside and pump while talking to doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff all at the same time. Curran passed away one year ago this August, and in his honor, Julie regularly makes & donates Peekaboobaby's to the hospital for use by mom's in the same dire situation as her dear friend. I love that.
Now dry your tears because now it's time for the freebie!!! Julie is offering a Sophia Mango PEEKABOOBABY nursing cover to this month's freebie winner (see Sophia Mango print to the right-so chic!). Will you keep it for yourself or give it as a gift? Will you pass the freebie word along to all the expecting mother's you know or keep this little secret to yourself. It's up to you! (although I am sure Julie would appreciate you passing on the word!)
