It’s TLB’s 5th Birthday! Time to Party Like a Leaky Part 2!

 The Leaky Boob is turning 5 years old and we’re celebrating ALL MONTH LONG! To celebrate we’re collecting and sharing your stories along with collecting some of our favorite maternity, breastfeeding, and baby products to give as gifts to YOU Leakies. Each week our celebration includes a different birthday bash bundle of prizes from our favorite brands, presents for Leakies. AND we’re growing! Some of us aren’t breastfeeding or bottle-feeding any more (and you thought it was going to last forever) but you’re still a part of our community and you’re still nourishing and loving your family so we’ve grown to expand two more communities where we can talk about our highs and lows of that journey in a safe, judgment-free environment. Over on we talk a lot about, well, everything, specially about parenting and relationships. invites everyone to find a seat at the table embracing that sometimes there’s a little wobble in one of our legs, making room for allergies, and creatively nourishing our whole selves with recipes and a lot of honest conversation. Our family is growing and we’re happy to share it with you!

Let’s party like a Leaky this month and #TLBsupportForward!

  13. Amy Hegwood says

    For 1st birthdays I like to have a small party with family and the LO always gets their own cake to make a mess with (made by mom so I know what’s in it).

  14. Anna Groeger says

  38. Ayla Crosley says

    I’d love to have a cute cloth diaper on the bum with a smash cake and some photos to remember the day.

  39. Honestly, I would be very tempted to through the house out the window, lol. Then again, the baby wouldn’t even remember anything, so maybe just a nice intimate celebration with family members would be the ideal thing to do. However lots of photos to remember the 1st birthday of course! I like the messy cake idea, however I am OCD, so I don’t know how much I would hold the thought of that idea, lol.

  40. Family, friends, and a big potluck dinner and a gorgeous cake.

  41. Michele Rodocker says

    We do a small party at home with family and a few close friends for the first birthday. I make the cake myself and do a small smash cake for the little one.

  44. Sarah Hayes says

    We celebrated with family. My oldest has two cousins with birthday’s around the same time, so we celebrated their birthdays, too. And had a small cake for her to “smash”…which she didn’t. She used a fork and spoon, while her cousin, who is only one month younger, completely covered his face with cake and icing. For kiddo #2, probably just family again.

  48. A party at home with family and a few close friends

  49. Regina Campbell says

  53. Le O'Brien says

  61. Stephanie Sangatanan says

    With a special birthday shirt!

  62. CHelsea Arbri says

    We celebrated our first’s with a quiet day at home with mommy & daddy, all focused around him. We still had a party, but that was a separate day completely. Our second will turn one in JUly and we plan t do it the same way. :]

  63. Ginelle NT says

    We celebrate with a small gathering of family.

  64. Caroline G says

    I’m not sure how to celebrate my baby’s first birthday–we’re still waiting on our twins (babies #1 and #2) to make their original debut! I guess we’ll solve the first birthday question in 2016 🙂

    For baby’s first birthday, I like to make a super cute cake and have a small party with immediate family members.

  72. Carly D. says

    We haven’t celebrated yet but there will be lots of cake thats for sure!

  73. Kristina D says

    It’s hard to plan ahead that far… we’re working on baby’s actual BIRTH day right now, which is coming up in about 4 weeks 🙂 When he turns 1 I think the important things will be that there is family around to celebrate with, and that baby gets to do lots of smiling 🙂

  74. We like to celebrate first birthdays with lots of family!

  75. Friends, family, first haircut and fun! She will have her first piece of cake that day 🙂

  76. We had parties for both of our little ones’ first birthdays, with immediate family and our close friends. Of course there was cake to smash (neither of them really got into that, they just ate the frosting, of course)! For my oldest daughter’s actual birthday, we were in Tennessee visiting (and meeting, for her) my grandma, so my cousin and uncle made her cupcakes. The next day she got to go meet my great-grandma and we took a 5 generation picture!

  77. We had parties at our home for both of my babies…friends and family and mini smash cakes. Worked out great!

    with family and cake!

  83. Family party at home – next month!

  84. A good old messy smash cake!

  85. Went to the planetarium to see an elmo show. No party, no junk food fest. Simple but special. My toddler has yet to even taste cake and I plan to keep it that way as long as possible.

  86. Cameron Rosa says

    We celebrate with family and friends. I made my son a dairy free carrot cake since carrots were his favorite at that time. I tried to have all of his favorite stuff since it was all about him!

  87. kristen Smarzewski says

    My baby is not born yet.

  88. We have a party with friends and family

  89. Although I have yet to have a baby with a first birthday, I think a simple party with family and cake is the best!

  90. Liz Ticona says

    My 1st son’s 1st birthday was at “Gymboree” and it was lots of fun for him…with my baby boy coming this July, I’d probably do it a little different, and wait to throw him a big party like that until he’s 2…and at his 1st party I’d love to do a family gathering and have him take a go at his cake 🙂

  91. Kari Barone says

    I like to make a gluten, dairy free cake with not too much sweet for 1 st birthday. An adorable outfit on little one for plenty of pictures alone and with family.

  92. We had a small party with close friends and family.

  93. Kara Gibbs says

    Planning to celebrate with family and close friends. Lots of fun with cousins and of course a cake bash.

  94. I just made my little one cupcake and we celebrated at home after he got back from daycare in the evening.

  95. Staci Nouri says

    I know they aren’t going to remember it but I like to gather all our friends and basically have a giant playdate. 1 yr olds are too little for activities so mostly just bring a bunch of toys somewhere and play. The one thing I did for my first kiddo is we drew a tree on some posterboard and had each baby guest sign their handprint with their name underneath aka our baby family tree.

  96. stephanie says

    Love! I love the leaky boob

  97. quietly at home with close family. little ones dont need a big hullabaloo!

  98. We celebrate with a big family and friends party and a little cake smash photo shoot. We go all out for 1!

  99. I think first birthdays are more for the family and those who supported us during the first year. With my first son, we were able to go home and visit my family and some of our best friends came by the celebrate. It was low key, a few balloons, a few gifts, pulled pork and homemade cupcakes. My son got his own cupcake and loved it!

  100. Tanya Leavitt says

    friends and family over with a birthday cake in some fun. thanks for such an awesome giveaway.

  103. Elizabeth Gee says

    We do the traditional big party plus first dessert.

  104. Kristin D says

    Our first little one is due in July. Not sure what we’ll do for the first birthday, but I’m sure there will be a small smash cake for baby and hopefully LOTS of family!

  105. Birthday party with close friends and family! Cake and ice cream too, of course 🙂

  106. Karen Jackson says

  112. Party with family and a few friends. Lots of fun and games!

  142. DorothyK says

    The night before our son’s first birthday, we looked through all the photos we had taken the year before and watched his eyes light up as he laughed at how small he used to be. The morning of his birthday, we read him Dr. Seuss’ Happy Birthday To You book & spent some time as a family before the party.

  143. We celebrated my son’s first birthday with just the three of us; I made a sugar free banana bread “cake” topped with yogurt. He loved it! We will do something similar for following babies, I am sure. 🙂

  153. With a party of course!

  154. Awesome Giveaway! My baby is only 3 months but i can’t wait to celebrate with family and friends!

  155. We celebrate with family with a BBQ, the first birthday is more for the parents and family than the baby because lets be honest they won’t remember their first party 😉

  156. Christina says

    simple family gathering and baby’s first cake. Baby doesn’t know the difference so we keep things easy for ourselves!

  158. Adele Miranda says

    Our first daughter was born in the summer and for her first birthday last year, we had a big blowout in the back yard with lots of food and 5 kiddie pools for the little ones. Of course, the baby got her first taste of cake! My second was born this past February and will be one in 2016. It will be too cold for a party outdoors, so we will have to think of different venues. But of course, there will be cake!

  172. We aren’t big on first birthdays, we make a cake to eat and sing and mostly it’s an emotional day of memories for me…the birth is so fresh and I can’t believe it’s been a year already…And that my baby is turning into a walking and talking baby. <3

  182. With balloons and a smash cake!

  183. Christina says

    I always have a party for my babies when they turn 1. I will admit that I tend to go a tad overboard. This June 5th will be my son Rocket’s first birthday and I am deep into planning his rocket themed party.

  212. We like to celebrate with a quiet family dinner and time together, maybe an outing to a favorite park (all summer babies). No big gifts, cakes, etc. because baby won’t remember anyway and ours all have food allergies so “smash” cakes don’t really work for us.

  255. We had a big party with family and friends that was beach themed since it was in the summer. I really appreciate that on your giveaway picture that there is a man baby wearing a baby.

  319. We celebrated my son’s 1st birthday with a Sesame Street themed party at my house with family. My husband has A LOT of family so even though it was family only thing, it was still pretty big and lots of fun.

  320. We have a big family party!

  321. hopefully by announcing our next pregnancy if we time it right!

    We have celebrated each of our 4 children’s birthday with immediate family only. We are a mixed religion family. In-law’s do not celebrate holiday’s of any kind, so it’s just us.

  336. kathryn heck says

  342. Mandy Marshall says

    Since we are a military family it is important to me for the first birthday to make memories. We weren’t able to have a come to the hospital and celebrate with the family the birth. So for us we have to have the family there even if that means traveling home to them. It doesn’t have to be a big thing at all either. Just a homemade cake, family time & cousins running around playing.

  343. We usually have a small family get together. I make a cake however they want it. My oldest requested a strawberry Nerds candy cake and my second oldest wanted a blueberry cake because he loves purple:-)

    • Lol I’m tired. First birthdays were not that lol.

      For first birthday I made custom mini cakes based off the nursery theme I chose for them. Kept it small and just family.

  344. With cake and family of course! And lots of outside playtime!

  345. We celebrated my son’s first birthday with a small party with close friends and video chatted with our family.

  346. We celebrate with family and friends. Cake, ice cream, presents……nothing fancy. I always make the cake which I look forward too whether it’s cute or not.

  347. Andrea Courtney says

  362. Andi Havens says

  363. I think the idea of professional photos with a smash cake are a fun idea. Since my little is not one yet, I haven’t really thought about it, but I think a small party with family and the friends that are like family is a great way to celebrate.

  364. I found the leaky boob when I was pregnant, it has gotten me through bfing going on 9 months and has helped me get to a point that I’ll bf anywhere when my babygirl is hungry. It’s comforting to have a no judgement place to go to for reassurance and support!

  365. I like to have a big party for first birthdays! My daughter’s is coming up in a week and a half (how did my baby get so big?!), and we’ve invited plenty of friends and family to celebrate with us.

  366. We haven’t celebrated yet. My son Is only 4 months old. Since his birthday is so far away, we haven’t really talked about it yet, but it will definitely be held somewhere indoor for friends and family with a smash cake for my little one.
