Nursing Bling Giveaway!!! (this giveaway is now closed)

I have been asking what you want to see on my blog and several of you said baby items. It has been 4 years since I had a baby so I went on the search for cool baby things and I found the coolest thing. Oh how I wish I would have had one of these (OK, really a couple in case something would have happened to one) when I was nursing.



Two of my babies were so easy, one slept 20 hours a day and only woke up to eat and finished in 15 minutes. One was born in China and came home at 2 1/2 so didn't need this for him. My oldest though wore me out. My oldest was not as easy and I was a very tired momma. It also took me 45 minutes to nurse her each time. I could never remember what side I needed to start on for the next feeding.



My dear friends, let me introduce you to a very, very cool shop that is having their GRAND OPENING TODAY!!! Yvette at Nursing Bling has come up with a solution to knowing which side you need to start feeding on. Yvette was kind enough to send me one to review (I don't need it so I will donate it to someone) and it is just genius in my opinion. They are so cute too that when your a tired momma, haven't had a shower in awhile and walking around in your PJ's you will feel good having a little bling on.



I asked Yvette about her genius invention and this is what she had to say:



When did you open your Etsy shop? We're so excited, our Etsy shop officially opens March 1st and we'll be offering free shipping for the month of March in honor of our grand opening. We reserved our nursingbling store name last fall in preparation, and we've been testing product pictures over the past month to see what looks best in the etsy format. Our etsy store will be the only place to purchase custom Design Your Own Nursing Bling in your choice of beads, colors, and charms online.



How did you come up with such a unique product? One of my dear girlfriends since high school was expecting her first child and in addition to a gift from her baby shower list, I wanted to give her something special and personal that would also be a keepsake of sorts. I put on my jewelry design hat and thought about it for a while then went to work and the result was the pink Swarovski Nursing Bling with the crystal diaper pin that we use in most advertising. She actually uses it as 'charm' on her diaper bag strap since she is now done with breastfeeding, everytime I see it I smile.



The next step was my friend calling me after a visit to her pediatrician and saying these ladies might be calling you about getting one of my nursing trackers. Word spread pretty fast and after about twenty of those calls, I thought hey I might be onto something here. So I got the bling patented and began to sell them at local art shows along with my regular jewelry line and the rest is history. This spring and summer we're introducing more cool products to complement the Nursing Bling line so stay tuned!


Can you explain how the Nursing Bling works? The Nursing Bling line is super easy to use! If you're using the Original Nursing Bling, before you begin feeding simply wrap the loop around your nursing bra or camisole strap on the side you're about to nurse from and pull the charm end through the loop end to secure. If you're using the Nursing Bling Clip, before you begin feeding just open the clip and place it around your nursing bra or camisole strap on the side you're about to nurse and snap it closed. After you finish nursing, either leave your Nursing Bling in place until your next feeding so you know which side you ended with or switch it over to the other side so you know where to begin your next feeding. Easy peasy!



I want to add to this that I tried the one she sent me and it opens and closes very easy.


Buy It - Since this is the GRAND OPENING for Nursing Bling they are offering free shipping the month of March. I'm sure if you bought this as a shower gift this would be the gift that got talked about.



Win It - Yvette has been kind enough to offer two of you, your very own Nursing Bling like one pictured above. She will give you your choice of gold or silver and either pink, blue, clear, or aurora borealis Swarovski crystals. This giveaway is open to my readers in the US and Canada.
** Update - Nursing Bling contacted me and now wants to give 2 away!!!
