From the diverse health benefits, to the increased bonding experience or even to the advanced weight loss, there are many reasons why a woman decides to breastfeed. Breast pump company, Ameda has launched the “I Breastfeed Because…” campaign to give moms a voice on this important subject in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Month.
Mom’s who are currently breastfeeding, or have in the past, are encouraged to log onto www.ibreastfeedbecause.com to upload 20-second videos that share the reasons why they chose to breastfeed.
For each video uploaded, tweet or video comment, Ameda will make a charitable donation to the Human Milk Banking Association of North America, a non-profit association of donor human milk banks established in 1985 to set standards for and to facilitate establishment and operation of milk banks in America.
All those who participate are also automatically entered to win a grand prize of a $2,500 nursery makeover or one of 25 secondary prizes, $50 American Express gift cards. While World Breastfeeding Month is in August, this campaign will run through September
Even better news? The Ameda Purely Yours, is now available on BabiesRUs.com and will be available in stores soon. Before you had to order online or know an Ameda rep locally, but now the Purely Yours and all of its accessories will be available at a store near you!
