peekabooby! (a GIVEAWAY)

Why is it that a word like "booby" can stop a grown person in their tracks? And why is it that men and boys seem to like that word so much?

Several weeks back my husband and I were laying in bed on a Saturday morning and Levi (our 15-month-old) was bouncing around, climbing on top of us, and generally just being cute. We were practicing naming body parts (like eye, ear, and nose) when he pointed to my husband's chest.

"Booby!" Ryan exclaimed.

"Not so fast Ryan," I chimed right back. (I could just imagine our little son walking around pointing to people's chests and exclaiming "booby!"

"Can you please use another word?" I asked him. Ever since then Ryan has been calling them his "chest buttons" (inspired by the belly button). Classic. I'm not sure "chest button" is any better of a term, but whatever. Hopefully I can at least prevent my son from learning the word "booby" for a few more years.

Seriously. Men and boobies. Unbelievable.

But... speaking of boobies, I do want to introduce you to Peekabooby! breastfeeding covers:


I was given one of these by a good friend of mine when I was expecting and it turned out to be one of my staple baby items. I now buy them as baby shower gifts for nearly every expecting mom I know.

Here's a few things I like about them:

They are great for nursing in public. The neck strap helps to secure the cover in place. The gape at the neck allows you to "peek in" at your "boobies" to make sure everything is happening correctly and leaves you hands free to help your baby attach or position just right. You can fold it up into a very small square, which takes up minimal amount of space in your diaper bag or purse. You can throw it over the stroller to block out sunlight when baby is sleeping or you're on a walk. You can wear it around your neck when babe's snoozing on your chest in a baby carrier to block out sunlight and other stimuli. The come in very pretty fabrics.

And, they are hand-made by a small business owner in Colorado. (I love supporting women's small business!)

this is the one i have... "samurai" because i love all things asian.

In honor of the Memos birthday, we will be giving away two of these nursing covers. (Valued at $39.00 each.)

The first will be chosen randomly and the second will be chosen by Katie Pollock (owner of Peekabooby!) and I according to what we deem as the most creative, convincing, memorable, or funny comment.

I also received peekabooby as a gift. When I offered to give one to my friend and told her to pick out her pattern online...she mistakenly googled peekabooby while at work and enjoyed an awkward interaction with her boss later. All for the sake of breastfeeding though, so all is well! These nursing covers are so detailed, handmade, unique in design and receive many admirable comments!

Ok, so I'm already following the memos and I don't really use facebook but I seriously need one of these. I love the samurai one...so pretty. I was one of those 'I can't believe that woman is breastfeeding in public' people pre-baby I'm ashamed to admit (Don't you love those wide sweeping totally ignorant statements!) And now, after having charlie last year, 10 months on, I'm pretty sure my boys have been viewed by countless strangers in various public places. My sweet, placid feeder has morphed into a peep show creator and I'm struggling. Especially since she doesn't look as though she's going to give up her feeds anytime soon...

I like you on FB already, does that still count?

 
At May 21, 2011 at 12:07 AM , Blogger Alicia said...

And I follow you already too, but I'm really trying hard because I desperately need one of those! Simon is 6 1/2 months old now, and for some reason he LOVES to wave his arms around when he eats which means if I don't pay close attention, he pulls the blanket down (or sometimes up) when I'm feeding him out and about. I love that in his baby innocence he doesn't have anything to be embarrased about, but as a woman, with the place I am at in life, I tend to be more modest about who I expose myself to!

 
At May 21, 2011 at 12:14 AM , Blogger Alicia said...

And I liked the Peekabooby FB page now too because I'm still trying to win one of these (or maybe even both sense I can't decide on just one and obviously the woman who designs them has such great taste in fabric *wink*wink!)

I would love to win this for my little sister! She's just recently gotten her life on track: she finally got her GED, has been holding a steady job and got a new place in a better neighborhood in preparation for her little one on the way. Her boyfriend, too, has cleaned up his act. I've told her about all the benefits of breastfeeding and would love for her to have the comfort and security afforded by this nursing cover. She wouldn't be able to afford one herself so this would be an amazing gift!
