GIVEAWAY :: Earth Mama Angel Baby Breastfeeding Support Kit

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we're going to honor that by giving all of our readers a chance at fighting breast cancer. That's right! Since long-term breastfeeding has been proven to significantly reduce a woman's likelihood of developing breast cancer, it makes sense that we should support women in their breastfeeding efforts (and for some of us, "efforts" is a massive understatement.)

Choosing to breastfeed is a personal decision which should be made by each woman and her family but I wholeheartedly believe that it is the best option for babies and their mamas. There are very few cases where breastfeeding is just not possible and in other cases it just becomes too difficult or is avoided because of the inconvenience. Having been through hell and back trying to breastfeed my own son, I am so glad I didn't give up when things got crazy tough. No woman likes to face the negative issues associated with breastfeeding -- not making enough milk (my problem), making too much milk, loss of privacy, feeling like a cow, cracked nipples, plugged ducts, thrush, mastitis, engorgement, hideous nursing bras, loss of your once perfectly perky breasts. I know, they're all pretty terrible. Even so, the good definitely outweighs the bad here, but it's extremely challenging to keep sight of that when you're in the thick of it. That's why mamas must get all the support they can to help them through the tough times. That's the only way I made it and I'm proud to say I'm still breastfeeding my 16-month-old.

To do our part to help support breastfeeding, which ultimately reduces the risk of breast cancer, we are offering one of you a kit created by the experts in pregnancy, birth and newborn support - Earth Mama Angel Baby. They have created kits designed to support a woman through each stage of pregnancy and early "momhood" and the Breastfeeding Support Kit is one of my favorites. Using nothing but organic, non-toxic and sustainable ingredients - you can feel confident that the products are 100% safe for mama and baby. If you're not in the business of breastfeeding, you can still enter for a chance to win this kit and give it away to a breastfeeding mama you know (they make excellent shower gifts!)

The kit includes**: Milkmaid Tea (to support an adequate milk supply), Natural Nipple Butter (to prevent and ease cracked or sore nipples), Booby Tubes (to ease the discomfort of both engorgement or breast infection), Bosom Buddies (an herbal compress to help with a variety of breastfeeding issues.) This is a $44.95 value!
