Do You Know What Today Is? It's My Blogiversary!


Happy Birthday, Blacktating! My blog is now 1 year old! I started this blog a year ago, never thinking anyone besides me and a few friends would ever even read it, and now I am totally part of a wonderful community of breastfeeding moms online. Smart, wonderful moms who I respect read my little ol' blog and it's a wonderful feeling. I couldn't let today pass without doing something big!

OK, actually my blog's birthday was on April 28th, but I've been working for the last few weeks to put together a great blogiversary party and giveaway for you guys, so I'm running a little late (you know black folks, always on "CP time"!)

Anyway, I am thrilled to offer you the following fantastic prizes from some amazing sponsors!

- The Black Woman's Guide to Breastfeeding, the only breastfeeding book written specifically for African-American women, by Kathi Barber.

-A 2-Pack of Organic Velour Flat diapers and pins courtesy of sustainablebabyishSloomb. Bamboo velour is ridiculously soft...perfect for baby's skin!

-A $50 gift certificate to One Hot Mama. You can get yourself a nursing tank, bra, Mama Spanx, maternity gear...the options are endless! One Hot Mama has stylish options for every mom or mama-to-be.

-A MilkBank breast milk storage system. I reviewed this product and thought it was great. And don't tell anyone, but sometimes I still let my son have his milk in a MilkBank bottle.

-A copy of the 3rd edition of The Complete Book of Breastfeeding by Sally Wendkos Olds, a classic breastfeeding book.

-The Wonders of Mother's Milk, a gorgeous hardcover multicultural children's book about breastfeeding, by Mishawn Purnell O'Neal.

- 25 Things Every Nursing Mother Needs to Know. A compact, beautifully illustrated breastfeeding book. A perfect shower gift!
