My First Giveaway!

I am very happy to announce Doula Ambition blog's very first ever giveaway!
Hooray for reaching 200 blog posts!

A Boppy Pillow!

I'm moving in a few months, and as I began thinking about packing I realized I have a perfectly good brand new Boppy nursing pillow (still in packaging) that I haven't yet used. I realized that rather than packing it up and moving it, I should give it to someone who can get some great use out of it!


The Boppy is a infant support pillow for use when breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, or for baby to lounge on.

Features of the Pink Bubble Dots (pictured above) Boppy Pillow and Slipcover:

  • The Boppy pillow supports baby as you nurse and also as your little one rests, plays and learns to sit up
  • Expandable "Miracle Middle" to fit more waist sizes while still retaining its shape for the multiple other uses
  • The pillow shell is a cottony soft fabric wrapped around polyester fill
  • Boppy Bare Naked is the famous Boppy pillow in solid white; a removable slipcover simply goes in the wash when it needs cleaning
  • This whimsical slipcover displays a mod dot print in hues of pink, lavender, yellow and more
  • Both pillow and cover are machine wash
 
This Boppy would be great for personal use, to give a new mom as a baby shower gift, or even as a doula to help moms learn to breastfeed in a more comfortable position. 

The first time I ever heard of a Boppy was at a baby shower. When the pregnant mama opened the wrapped Boppy pillow, she was so excited because she had heard they were the best. Its true that the Boppy has won the America's #1 baby product Award six times.

  6. I love how the boppy felt against my stomach after my cesarean. Seemed to support it so I could laugh without feeling a lot of pain.

  7. I just found your blog and I would like to enter! I just became a fan of you on Facebook and I follow through google.

    I love the boppy. I have a four month old baby girl named Gracie and I strictly breast feed her. The boppy is so comfortable to use and it's also very convenient when nursing with people around. It holds the baby up higher so you don't have to cover up as much. The boppy pillow also promotes sitting up in Babies. Grace likes to sit in between the boppy pillow to help her sit up. Ours got lost in our move but, I am a big fan.

    A topic that could be good to talk about is the strength women have. I feel like women don't go naturally during labor because of fear and because society tends to make women feel like they are not strong and should fear childbirth when, in reality, we are made to deliver babies.

  8. I love the boppy, as a former nanny I used it alot to support children when they were still learning to sit as well as for bottle feeding. As a postpartum Doula and an aspiring child birth educator I would love to own one to show my clients how helpful they are for breastfeeding.

  16. I LOVED my Boppy. I used it almost 24/7. My baby nursed constantly the first 3 months so I lived in my rocking chair. After my cesarean it was god-sent. I didn't have to wrestle with my baby to get comfortable. Baby girl love to fall asleep on it against my belly. Also used it to help her learn to sit up on her own. So needless to say my Boppy is well loved and thoroughly used. I could defiantly use a new one for the next one!

  20. Happy SITS Monday! I remember the boppy well. When my twins were babies, it was a wonderful lifesaver... such a simple but fantastic item. The lucky winner will cherish it like I did mine.
    Anyway, I stopped by to say hello and wish you well. Beautiful blog you have with a terrific color scheme.
    Cheers,
    Eliz
