Lucky #7 Celebration and Giveaway!

It’s The Leaky Boob’s 7th birthday! And TLB founder and community manager, Jessica, and her family is expecting baby #7! With so much to celebrate, we decided to make a big thing of it.

We kicked it off with a Facebook Live Stream featuring our entire family, all 8 of us, on camera, taking turns sharing tips on how to help prepare your children for a new sibling. In case you missed that surprisingly moderately rambunctious event, you can watch it here

About half way through that Live Stream, we shared a special video announcing our family’s exciting news, thanks to our friends at Snugabell Mom & Baby Gear and My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear. It features our whole family, a touch of nostalgia, stuffed animals dancing the Macarena, a game full of laughter where apparently dice give birth to baby dice, and a pumping bra demonstration, among other things. 

This Live Stream offered us the opportunity to talk about a number of great products too,  and a few brands even surprised us with a surprise gift just to help us celebrate our Lucky #7! Thank you so much My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear, Ameda, Chunkabuns, and Molly’s Suds for the surprise gifts! 

Heartfelt thanks also to My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear and Snugabell Mom & Baby Gear, as well as Bamboobies, Bella Materna, Chunkabuns, Earth Mama Angel Baby, Evenflo Feeding, Pariday, and UpSpring, for making this Live Stream possible.

Brands that sponsored the Pregnancy Announcement video: 

Snugabell Mom & Baby Gear
Born out of one mom’s desire to pump breastmilk so she could focus on running her small business while others fed her daughters, without forgoing style for efficiency, Wendy put her years in the apparel industry to good use and designed her own pumping bra! 10 years later the PumpEase is now one of many in Snugabell’s product line, and Wendy also manages an online community of support, encouragement, and tips, as well as the Snugabell Milk Money Grant Program, which funds grassroots breastfeeding support initiatives. 

 

PumpEase Hands-Free Pumping Bra (all bundles): Can I just say how much we love that PumpEase has a new print that looks like it’s inspired by The Leaky Boob’s logo? The PumpEase is your fashionable AND functional solution for pumping while doing just about anything you might want to do while you sit and let the PumpEase hold your pump flanges in place for you. Look mom, no hands! RV (Retail Value): $38

Additionally, receive $7 off the PumpEase at www.snugabell.com, amazon.com, and amazon.ca using code: TLBLUCKY (valid through 5/31/17, listing must state “Sold by Snugabell Mom & Baby Gear and Fulfilled by Amazon” for the code to work)

 

My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear
My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear is the product of a sonograph tech that recognized how much people love to be able to hear their baby’s heartbeat. And after noticing how enthusiastic these families were over being able to take a recording of that heartbeat home with them in a little stuffed animal, Purusha just knew that she had to be a part of it. Now with dozens of animals to choose from, the amount of cuteness is overwhelming! Meet one of the newest additions to the My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear family, as well as a couple other products featured in this giveaway: 

Vintage Sloth (select bundles): Adorable stuffed animals that contain a red heart recorder for 20 seconds of precious and comforting sound: your baby’s heartbeat. And now that our babies have gotten older, they have a special and unique message from their parents recorded so they can hear it whenever they need it. RV: $39.99

“SAVE the Midwives” Woven Wrap (select bundles): 5 of our 6 babies were born at home and we are planning a home birth for “Lucky” too, so we LOVE our midwives. This wrap with a message is 40% hemp, and 60% cotton, an exclusive made by “Natibaby” and balances elegance with functionality and support. Our new baby’s first wrap! RV:$125

My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Mei Tai (select bundles): made by Babyhawk, this charcoal gray, Asian style baby carrier works great for infants and toddlers. We’re looking forward to trying it out with our little one. RV: $75

Bamboobies
Bamboobies Multi-Pack (all bundles): These are some of my favorite breast pads. Their heart shape is not only adorable, it allows for easy moulding to all kinds of breast shapes – which, let’s face it, applies to our own breasts all the time while breastfeeding. Very absorbent, they come in two different types: day and night, so you can always have that soft velour on your skin. Bamboobies has got your front! RV: $24.99

UpSpring supplements are not only free of artificial ingredients, gluten-free, and non GMO, they also taste good, and of course, they are full of the nutrients you’re looking for. RV: $24.99

Brands that surprised us with a Special Gift in the Facebook Live Stream:

My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear
Not only has Purusha kept our kids spoiled with all the cuddly plush they could want (including the new Vintage Sloth – so cute) with personal messages from their mommy and daddy, she also sent us one of the “SAVE the Midwives” woven wrap (she knows how much I respect midwives!), as well as a My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Mei Tai, for us to discover with you during the Live Stream. Thank you so much! More information on all of these products above. 

Ameda
Our friend Vicki knows that there’s way more to parenting than keeping littles fed, changed, bathed, and rested. They need stimulation and connection! And so we just love that Vicki surprised us with a family game. Ameda is not only there for your pumping needs, they support your journey as a mom. Thanks, Ameda! 

Chunkabuns
I got to meet Angie earlier this year, and she loves getting creative with baby clothes, which explains the Savvy Pants that grow with your baby, the Handi-Bands that expand your baby’s diapers, and the shirt I was wearing during the Live Stream that read “Mom Strong” and that has a matching shirt for baby that reads “Strong Like Mommy.” Angie surprised us with a set of custom-made T-shirts for our 6, I mean, 7 kids! “Big Sister” for our 6 girls, and “Hello World” in html for the baby that’s coming! So cute! Check out Chunkabuns custom T-shirt ideas for your family! 

Molly’s Suds
We know Molly’s Suds for their great laundry soap options. Time for us to get our cloth diaper stash out and get them ready! Thank goodness we didn’t give them all away. Molly’s Suds surprised us with wool dryer balls during the Live Stream. Wool dryer balls are a great alternative to fabric softener, and we were in need of replacing the ones that disappeared on us a little while ago. Thank you! Check out Molly’s Suds tips on reducing static cling here
