The theme of World Breastfeeding Week 2015 is all about supporting breastfeeding moms when they return to work. We know first hand that returning to work after having a baby is a huge challenge and we want to honor all of the moms who strive to provide breastmilk to their babies while separated from them. Plus, we just love giving away awesome breastfeeding/pumping items to ALL breastfeeding moms! So, get ready for the biggest Ultimate World Breastfeeding Week Giveaway yet!
To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2015, over 20 breastfeeding-supportive companies have donated items for an enormous Breastfeeding Mom Prize Package, valued at over $1500! 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.
Here are your hosts!

Founded by Robin Kaplan, M.Ed., IBCLC in 2009, SDBFC offers private breastfeeding consultations, classes, free support groups, and an extensive blog. In March 2013, SDBFC launched the San Diego Nursing in Public Task Force to educate the San Diego community about the laws that protect a mother’s right to breastfeed in public and to provide support and guidance to mothers who have faced harassment for breastfeeding in public.
New Mommy Media: New Mommy Media is a network of dynamic audio podcasts for new and expecting parents. Through their shows and interactive online content, they give tips and advice for new parents, educating and entertaining moms and dads as they transition into parenthood. Their show, The Boob Group, is hosted by an international board certified lactation consultant and features a breastfeeding expert and a panel of breastfeeding mothers. Together, they openly discuss breastfeeding successes, struggles, and everything in between. The show helps guide mothers by providing an honest, natural, and relaxed approach to breastfeeding.
The Badass Breastfeeder: The Badass Breastfeeder is a blog written by Abby Theuring, a social worker, writer, public speaker, activist, wife and mother of 2 who lives in Chicago, IL. The blog empowers mothers to breastfeed in public, and to breastfeed beyond infancy. It encourages moms and dads to trust their parenting instincts and helps parents develop the confidence to make important decisions for their families. It’s also the personal story of one family’s struggles through the ups and downs of attachment parenting. Unlike many parenting blogs, it paints an honest, authentic picture of the stressful moments that come along with being a parent. The Badass Breastfeeder is a global community of moms and dads who share their experiences so that we know we are not alone.
