Giveaway! Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bra

This giveaway is now closed. Summer was the winner! Congratulations!

I’m excited to have a Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bustier to give away this week! A lot of mothers combine breastfeeding with working (and pumping at work). As one of my friends (a mother of infant twins) phrased  it recently, you have to be a “multi-tasking phenom.” A bra like this would be a helpful addition to the multi-tasker’s skill set 🙂 I wish that all mothers would have the freedom and flexibility at work to be able to sit down and really take a few minutes “time out” to pump for their babies. However, this is not the reality that a lot of mothers experience in the workplace and that is where a “bustier” like Simple Wishes can definitely come in handy! The company was founded by four sisters and has formed a recent partnership with WIC. According to the company’s website:

Using a breast pump is significantly easier with the Bustier, as it allows moms to pump hands-free. Pumping hands-free encourages and supports moms to:

• Promote the use of a breast pump for greater length of time (ideally six to 12 months), by minimizing user frustration.

• Reduce the duration of each pumping session

• Double pump—pump both breasts simultaneously

• Massage breasts, relax, and think of their baby while expressing

I have a light pink Simple Wishes to give away this week (contest ends on Saturday the 20th at noon). One of the cool things about this bra is that the ribcage band is adjustable up to 10 inches, so you can get a “custom” fit. The one I have to give away is a size L up to XXL. I have taken the bustier out of the package to look at, but it is brand new and never worn (though the seal is opened from my having examined it). To enter to win, you have several choices. For the basic entry, just leave a comment (making sure I have some way to contact you from it if you win). For bonus entries, do one (or all) of the following:

Racktrap Giveaway!

Giveaway closed! The  four winners for this giveaway were Rini, inoakpark, Summer, and Rixa!

Time for another giveaway! This is not really birth related, but it is breast-related and since breasts are part of being female and nurturing children, etc., etc. I decided it was related enough to go ahead and share here! The Racktrap is a little tiny purse/pouch that you tuck inside your bra (credit card, ID, cash, etc.) to leave yourself hands-free and unencumbered. I was amused the the first step in the instructions included is to, “Locate your breasts.” ;-D You can use the Racktrap while exercising OR while going out somewhere in a fancy dress! They have lots of different colors (though presumably no one will see it!). I wasn’t sure how it would work exactly because I wear simple “sleep bra” type bras that pull over my head like a sports bra, but I tried it and it works really well even in that kind of bra (don’t worry, I didn’t try the ones I’m giving away, I tried out the cute Valentine print one they sent and I’m keeping that one!)

Something that surprised me about it is that the open edge doesn’t have a closure, so I thought things might fall out of it, but once it is tucked away, nothing falls out (somehow in the context of talking about bras, this sounds like there are secret meanings here…). It is very trim and, I have to say, MUCH classier than just sticking money directly into your bra (which I’ve never done, but still, if that is something you do, perhaps you’d like to win one of these instead!).

Okay, so I have FOUR cute little Racktraps to give away. They came in a little pouch together, but I’m giving them away one at a time because that way more people get to win. I will close the giveaway this Friday. To enter, you can simply leave a comment here (make sure I can figure out your email address from your comment so I can get in touch with you if  you win). You can get additional contest entries by becoming a fan of the Racktrap on Facebook (first time fans only) and leave a comment here telling me you did so, and/or becoming a fan of Talk Birth on Facebook (first time fans only) and leaving a comment here telling me you did so. It is that simple 🙂

Disclosure: I was provided with complimentary samples of this product. I have no other financial or commercial relationship to the company.
