Heart to Heart Breast Care Bamboobies Giveaway

Breasts are amazing. They can feed babies, they can tell a woman where she is in her fertility cycle, breasts can adjust the milk they make according to the specific needs of the baby (or babies) they are feeding. Breasts can comfort, have fun, and look stunning. Breasts can also get sick and even become deadly. Breast cancer impacts about 1 in 8 women. Taking care of our health and of our breasts is one of the ways we can do our part to be present with our children for as long as possible.

Which is why we have teamed up with Bamboobies to remind moms that even while they are breastfeeding, it is important to be educated and to take action steps in breast cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. You can read the sponsored article here. While we can’t come feel your boobs for you (do it!), we can at least send some of the soft care options Bamboobies has for moms. You matter moms, we love you, take care of your boobs!

    Today, about 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.

  4. I had no idea that only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths among American women. That’s really surprising!

  5. The shawl is such a cool idea to use as a nursing cover! I never would have thought of that.

    I honestly had no idea that only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths among American women. Cancer runs rampant in our family and I recently lost my mother to a very common, treatable type. It wasn’t caught fast enough so I urge everyone to always go to checkups!

  10. When nursing, you should do self checks while you’re breasts are empty

  11. 1 in 8 women have breast cancer

  12. Ashley H. says:

    I did not realize that the risk is 1 in 8 women.

  13. While I think I kind of knew this, I thought it was interesting in the article where it talked about obesity and toxicity being high risk factors in younger women. While difficult to avoid all toxins, I like that the article mentioned specific toxins we can look for in products to avoid. 1 in 8 women being affected with breast cancer is a lot!

  14. Lisa Humphries says:

    I was surprised to learn that tumors diagnosed in younger women could be more aggressive and not respond as well to treatment. People always think youth is an advantage…the only advantage with breast cancer is early detection!

  15. I was actually surprised it was as low as 1 in 8… everyone I know seems to have a relative that has had cancer.

  16. I loved the article. It was a great summary! I didn’t learn much new because I unfortunately have had a couple family members with breast cancer already so I’ve done a bit of research on it. I still thought it was a great article!

  17. I learned that “In young people, obesity and toxicity are the most prevalent reasons for excess estrogen”

  18. Janelle Rowley says:

    I learned that taking care of our health and of our breasts are one of the ways we can do our part to make sure we are present with out babies as long as possible. My step gram had breast cancer and she went thru everything all by herself. She didn’t tell anyone she had cancer until after she was in remission. I’m not sure why, but I hope that no woman feels like she needs to hide her illness. I want to make sure all women get proper support should they ever face a terrible illness such as breast cancer.

  19. Great article. I learned that breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women. I had no idea it was that common!

  20. I didn’t realize that best cancer in younger women tends to be more aggressive.

    I didn’t know that breastfeeding longer than a year significantly improves breast cancer risk – all the more reason to extend my breastfeeding goal!

  35. I learned that statistics indicate that tumors diagnosed in younger women may be more aggressive and less responsive to treatment. Crazy! You would think it would be for older women.

  40. This surprised me a lot! “The chance that a breast cancer patient will be alive five years after diagnosis is lower in women under 40. Statistics indicate that tumors diagnosed in younger women may be more aggressive and less responsive to treatment”. It makes total sense though!

  48. Meagan Raymer says:
