Let Love Nourish Giveaway Event!!

We are so happy to partner with Just Another Hat and many other great bloggers to bring you the great giveaway event celebrating National Breastfeeding Awareness Month!! 

We are huge breastfeeding advocates here at The Great Cloth Diaper Experiment.  We learned early on that the statistics prove that if you are able, breastfeeding is the way to go.  We have breastfed all three of our children for varying amounts of time, but little Lukas just turned 10 months and shows no signs of slowing down.  

For information and encouragment with breastfeeding, please visit the Le Leche League International or the United States Breastfeeding Committee.
Now...on to our giveaway!!

We have a fabulous giveaway package for you from three wonderful sponsors featured below.



Designs by Nicole Timm

Designs by Nicole Timm is an eclectic Etsy shop with great variety of fun products.  In addition to the beautiful breastfeeding bracelets (shown above), you will also find cute eraser earrings, duct tape art pieces (you will be amazed, I promise), and even recycled eggshell jewelry!!  Each piece is handmade with great creativity- there is something unique for everyone!!

But we're here to talk about breastfeeding, right?  So here is some information about the beautiful breastfeeding bracelets you will find at Designs by Nicole Timm:

What is a Breastfeeding/Nursing Bracelet you may ask? It's a bracelet that you can keep track of when you last fed your baby. There are numbers 1-12 on the bracelet which are the hours. In between the numbers are 3 Glass Pearls, each Pearl signifies 15 minutes. There is a Lobster Clasp with a Baby Bottle Charm that you can place next to the time that you last fed your baby. So if you fed at 2:30, you would place the Clasp next to the second Glass Pearl after the number 2. You can also keep track of which side you last fed on by switching the bracelet from wrist to wrist. 

There are also multiple other uses for this bracelet: How many glasses of water you drink per day, Diaper changes on newborns, Medication tracking, Potty Learning reminders, "Time out" timers, the list goes on and on...

Designs by Nicole Timm has donated the beautiful breastfeeding bracelet above as part of our breastfeeding prize package below.
