The Ultimate World Breastfeeding Week Giveaway 2013

Welcome to The Ultimate World Breastfeeding Week Giveaway, co-hosted by The Leaky Boob, San Diego Breastfeeding Center , and The Boob Group.  This year's World Breastfeeding Week theme is Mother to Mother Support, which is what we are all about!  

World Breastfeeding Week is a time to celebrate breastfeeding mothers around the world, as well as recognize the barriers that these same mothers face as they strive to meet their personal breastfeeding goals.  Breastfeeding, as all things having to do with parenting a child, requires a supportive network that guides, provides helpful advice, and elevates a mother's self-esteem.  Mother to mother support, in addition to community support and education, are crucial to a mother's personal breastfeeding success.

To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2013, over 40 breastfeeding-supportive companies have donated items for 2 enormous Breastfeeding Mom Prize Packages, each valued at over $600!  First, we'd like to introduce you to the co-hosts of the Ultimate World Breastfeeding Week giveaway.  Then, we'll share all of the goodies that have been so graciously donated.
