Win a Medela Sleep Bra {closed}

Oh the joys of having a baby…first you can’t sleep because of the big ol bump that is your baby, not to mention the back aches, hip pain…oh the hip pain!

See, I always seem to look back on pregnancy through rose-colored glasses.  I loved my belly (and boobs…I even took a pic of them (in a bra) so I could remember “my ultimate perfect breasts” if I should ever want to go and get them back via a plastic surgeon…and I might…based on what they look like now).

Anyhow, I very conveniently seem to forget the aches, pains, stretching, pulling, constipation, constant hang-over feeling, that was had during pregnancy.  I suppose it’s mother nature’s way of having us forget all of the pains of pregnancy and child birth so that we will procreate again…it has to be or else the world would be filled with only children, right!

I digress (whoa did I digress!). The point is that after all of that lovely pregnancy stuff, your sleeping pains change…you get to have these breasts that are filled with milk to feed your precious child. And more than likely you will sleep in a bra to give you support and stuff it with pads to catch any milk leakage.

Well, Medela, the people who bring us so many fantabulous products for breastfeeding, have created a new sleep bra and I’m giving one away in honor of breastfeeding awareness month!

Let me allow Medela to explain this new hooter holder and it’s features further… (I have not reviewed it , as I am all done with boobie feeding, fyi)

midbluesleep-02Medela introduced a new Mid-Blue fashion color for its Sleep Bra.  The Mid-Blue Sleep Bra offers the same comfortable support that makes the original Sleep Bra a favorite among moms for nighttime nursing.

Medela created the Sleep Bra with a nursing mother’s comfort in mind. It offers a no-tag, wire-free design for soft, nighttime comfort.  The breathable combed cotton and racerback style help encourage peaceful sleep. The Sleep Bra is designed to keep nursing pads in place to prevent nighttime leaks and features a drawback cup for breastfeeding convenience.

“Many new moms worry about how to make nighttime nursing work,” said Anne Ng’ang’a, product manager of intimate apparel from Medela.  “The Sleep Bra offers moms a comfortable solution: the support they need to sleep well, plus a drawback cup for quick and easy access during feedings.”

The new Mid-Blue Sleep Bra joins Medela’s extensive intimate apparel line, which offers superior fit and comfort for moms at home, at the office or out on the town.  In addition to the Sleep Bra, the line includes the Medela Seamless Underwire Bra, Seamless Softcup Bra, Comfort Bra and Nursing Camisole.   To learn more about Medela’s intimate apparel offerings visit its “Which Bra When” chart or nursing bra fitting video.

The Sleep Bra is also available in white or nude, comes in sizes small to extra large and has a suggested retail price of $19.99.  The Mid-Blue Sleep Bra will be available while supplies last wherever the Sleep Bra is sold. To locate a retailer near you click here.

    I had no idea that number was so high! But i guess it makes sense since i suppose alot of women have to pump in the beginning until their milk supply evens out!! So it totally makes sense!
