Handmade from the Heart Giveaway Hop {Supporting Breastfeeding Mamas}

Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to the [2nd annual] Handmade from the Heart Giveaway Hop, hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network!

This Hop was such a success last year that we brought it back for round 2 because it seems everyone loves beautiful handmade items! Each blogger in this Event has a handmade giveaway worth at least $25, so be sure to hop around and celebrate Handmade from the Heart! And you definitely do not want to miss the fantastic handmade goodness of the Grand Prize… a $150 Etsy Gift Card!

Breastfeeding is something that is close to my heart, so for my giveaway I’ve created a little package of goodies to accommodate the nursing mother or mama-to-be. Everything here was hand made by me with lots and lots of love!

First up is a nursing cover. This nursing cover is lightweight so your little one doesn’t get to hot. It is made with boning in the front so you can constantly see and communicate with your baby as he or she settles down for a feeding. If you’re crafty, you can make your own cover using my tutorial over at Breastfeeding Place.

I also created a little matching pouch to carry your nursing cover in. Included is a a hand made nursing necklace made from wooden beads that are individually knotted in place and out of danger for your baby to play with. You can also take the necklace off and use it as a chew toy. The thick knots and tough beads really get babies going!

I’ve also thrown in 2 pairs of nursing pads. Each pair is made with charcoal bamboo material and one pair is backed with PUL to prevent stains on your clothing. Charcoal bamboo is known for it’s antimicrobial properties, which will definitely help keep your breasts free of germs and healthy.

Finally, I’m throwing in 2 ounces of my home made herbal healing salve. This salve can be used on sore or cracked nipples and baby bums. If you’d like to know what is in the salve, please check out my tutorial here.

This giveaway is open to residents of the Us only. To enter, simply use the Giveaway Tools form below.

A winner has been chosen! Congratulation to Jeanette, who is expecting baby number 3!!!

    I am currently pregnant, although I wish I wasn’t (not that I don’t want the baby, but my due date is on the 20th and I am trying to be patient, lol!) I would probably keep this because I will be nursing soon!

  2. Amanda Boerst says:

    Such a great giveaway! I would give this to a good friend because she’s expecting her first.

  3. Hi there! I am currently pregnant with our first…”DUE TODAY”! (But I have a feeling he/she is not planning on arriving anytime soon) I would be keeping this as I am hoping to breastfeed. Saw this giveaway from another post…just biding my time until my little monster decides to arrive. Definitely ready to be done…feeling pretty sore and miserable (we are in WI and it has been miserably cold and my husband and I have been sick for the last week!) Thanks for the giveaway…very cool!

    • Oh those last few days/weeks can be miserable! Here’s to wishing you a swift and safe delivery. Good luck on the giveaway!

  4. I found your blog on the handmade from the heart giveaway hop. I would love to win this for myself because I am still breastfeeding and I only have one cover, which is lost or dirty at least half the time.

  5. Pregnant and due in May. 🙂

  6. TTC so hopefully I will need this soon – if not, I know a mama who could use it!

  7. This will be a gift for my daughter in law who is breast feeding my grandson. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  8. I’m not currently breastfeeding, but am due in about 2 months. This will be #4, with the other 3 all having nursed over a year! It’ll be a gift for myself and the new baby. I’ve never used a nursing cover, usually just a small blanket when needed. It’d be neat to finally have one to use! And I love the wooden bead nursing necklace. There has been many times that would have been very handy!

  9. This will be a gift for my friend who plans on breastfeeding! I’m have the weekend off of work, so I’m doing well! I found this blog by looking at the Handmade from the Heart blog hop.

  10. Victoria Carlson says:

    I would love to gift this to one of my good friends who is expecting a baby in may and plans to breastfeed her new baby boy!

  11. I hope to breastfeed some day. I’d probably keep this for myself.

  12. Jessica Hughes says:

    I’m a breastfeeding mom, so I would use the prizes for myself! I would especially love the nursing necklace. My daughter loves to pinch me while she’s eating – not fun!

  13. I’ll be 5 weeks into breastfeeding tomorrow 🙂
    I came here from the hop linky on Mama’s Baby Cupcakes.

  14. I’m good, how are you? 🙂 I’m pregnant so I would keep it for myself. Thank you for this opportunity

  15. I’m a breastfeeding mom and would be keeping this for myself. Thank you

  18. Claire Rheinheimer says:

    I am currently breastfeeding my 2 1/2 year old son and my 8 month old daughter. This would be a gift for a friend of mine tho. I’m going through the blog hop (I love those!) and found you that way.

  24. I am not currently breastfeeding. Although my next door neighbors just had a beautiful little girl. I found your giveaway through the Handmade from the Heart Hop.

    Not currently breastfeeding or pregnant… this would probably be a gift for one of a couple pregnant friends!

  30. I have a just turned 9 month old today that is still basically exclusively nursed. He’s not into food that’s soft at all. Hard things he gnaws on but that’s it. I’d love to use this prize pack!

    • We didn’t start a real solid food regimen until 10 months. Keep doin’ what you do! Food before one is just for fun!!!

  31. I never use a cover, but I’m sure I can find a mama to bless with it!

  32. Jamie Winsor says:

  33. I am currently breastfeeding my son! 6 months strong so far! It’s been a struggle though so this is a huge accomplishment for me. Your facebook post of this giveaway actually prompted me to check it out! Thanks!

  34. I thought I left a comment, but I guess it didn’t go through! I have 4 children and breastfed all of them and am expecting my first grandson in July…pretty excited! My daughter is going to breastfeed and I would love to give this to her if I win it. Thanks!!! 🙂

  35. I came here because of the hop, and I’m TTC, so this would be great!

  47. golden storm says:

  48. I am currently breastfeeding with my first baby! It has been a great experience. Not easy at all, but very rewarding! My daughter is 4 weeks old today and I finally feel like we are getting a good hang of things! Stick with it Mamas! Don’t give up! I had lots of encouragement from family and friends. I say find that before you have your baby, it really helps! I also found you on Pinterest! I would absolutely keep the prizes for myself! I have one cover that does not have the boning and quickly realized it is pretty important! 🙂

  49. I am currently TTC #2. I’d probably save it for myself, at least for a while. If a friend gets pregnant before me, i may gift it to them. I was brought here by a pin on pinterest, and I’m well, hope you are too!
