Breastfeeding and toy giveaways! (ETA AGAIN: wrap, nursing shirt, & MORE!)

(Updated again at 11:37 p.m. — scroll down!)

The Wonders of Mother's Milk by Mishawn Purnell O'NealThere are a few giveaways going on right now that I thought I'd notify you about. Go forth and win something wonderful!

(Disclosure: I get an extra entry for telling you about the first, and all three are giveaways I'm excited about!)

The Black Woman's Guide to Breastfeeding by Kathi Barber• The Blacktating one-year blogiversary giveaway ends today at noon, so hurry on over and post a comment or tweet or similar! There are seven possible prizes: 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; a $50 gift certificate to One Hot Mama, MilkBank Vacuum Storage Systema MilkBank breast milk storage system; The Complete Book of Breastfeeding, by Sally Wendkos Olds, a classic; The Wonders of Mother's Milk, a gorgeous hardcover multicultural children's book about breastfeeding, by Mishawn Purnell O'Neal; or 25 Things Every Nursing Mother Needs to Know, a compact, beautifully illustrated breastfeeding book.

Simply Breastfeeding DVD Set by Shari and Joe CrisoBreastfeeding Moms Unite is giving away a Simply Breastfeeding DVD Set by Shari and Joe Criso. It's the perfect instructional DVD set for a pregnant or new mom who wants to learn all about breastfeeding from the comfort of her home, with any partner's support. You'll be able to see breastfeeding in action up close, something women aren't always able to manage in real life. I love the thought that, for learning purposes, you can stare and stare and not be thought rude! The contest ends June 13.

Melissa & Doug Jumbo Numbers Wooden Chunky PuzzleNo Time for Flash Cards, which is a wonderful site that gives creative ideas for children's activities, is giving away an adorable wooden counting puzzle from Melissa & Doug. It's got colorful chunky pieces that are perfect for little hands. This contest closes on June 7.

A Mother's Boutique Obi Nursing Top
I found out about some other juicy ones:

Celebrate Life With Bargains! is hosting a giveaway of a beautiful Obi Nursing Top from A Mother's Boutique, which is the same store that sponsored the Skinies cami giveaway. Enter this giveaway by June 20.

gray Sleepy Wrap baby fatherBlessed With Full Hands is giving away a Sleepy Wrap Baby Wrap Carrier, which is a stretchy wrap that sounds like it has just enough and not too much stretch to it. Intrigued? I know I am. Enter by June 15.

Sleepy Wrap baby and fatherP.S. Do you like the pictures of hawt babywearing papas? That's why I chose those ones, folks.


(ETA 11:37 p.m.)

And I'm so dumb, because I saw this one before and forgot about it. I had even tried a search of my Google Reader for contests and giveaways, but I must have used the wrong search terms. Here 'tis:

Sakura Bloom Silk Baby SlingsPhD in Parenting is hosting a one-year blogiversary scavenger hunt! You can search her blog for the answers to a series of questions for the chance to win one of five fab prizes: a gorgeous Silk Essential ring sling from Sakura Bloom; an Enhance-me magical photo portrait that would be beautiful for turning a snapshot of your little one into a magical fairy or dinosaur explorer; one of the newfangled, eco-friendly digital subscriptions to the exceptional Mothering Magazine donated by doudou bebe; your own pick of 2 yards of funky Pink Panda Fabric,BioGreen Biodegradable BPA-Free Sport Bottle with Wide Mouth DuoFlow Lid perfect for making your own baby sling; and one of two sets of 5 BioGreen Bottles, which are fully recycled and biodegradable water bottles. So those are pretty appealing prizes, and I'm always up for a little homework. Plus, it will give you a chance to read a wide breadth of her archives (which, natch, is the point). So get searching, because the scavenger hunt ends June 7.


All these giveaways have inspired me to consider hosting my own sometime. It sounds like fun!

Good luck to everyone! If there are any other good giveaways to list, let me know — and let me know if you win something!
