Pump it Up in Style! Win a Simple Wishes Pumping Bra!

On January 22, 2011, I gave birth to my second baby, Samara. There was no question in my mind that I was going to breast feed. I nursed my son, Ari, now 3 1/2 years old, for 13 months, and I planned on doing the same for Samara. With both babies, I wanted the freedom to leave them with Wil or my parents, so I knew that owning a breast pump was essential.

For those of you who have pumped breast milk with an an electric pump, you know how tricky it can be. I remember pumping for Ari and I was totally uncoordinated. I would hold the pumps in place, my hands would get tired, it was really aggravating. That's why, when Danielle @ Momotics announced that she was giving away a Simple Wishes Pumping Bra on her Virtual Baby Shower, I was (pun intended) pumped! Sorry guys, I had to!

I entered Danielle's giveaway for the pumping bra. I didn't think I'd win. So I was completely shocked when I got an email from her telling me that I won the bra! Hooray!

Here's what The Simple Wishes Pumping Bra looks like:

This picture is from The Simple Wishes PR folk. I wish I had this woman's abs.

Danielle, thank you woman! You seriously rock. I love this bra. It makes pumping so much easier than it used to be.

Don't believe me? You're probably thinking: "you're just saying that because you won it. " No people! I really love this bra.

When I realized how much I loved The Simple Wishes Pumping Bra, I wrote to their PR people and asked if they would allow me to give away one of their bras away on OS/NS Mom. Guess what? They said yes! Do you want to win this bra? You know you do.

Oh, and check out Danielle's new blog here!


  1. I'd love this bra because i plan on pumping! I also liked them on fb.

  2. Ok, I'm due in like 2 weeks so I NEED to win this bra. For reals! I liked Simple Wishes on Facebook :)

  3. I now follow Simple Wishes on Twitter, too!

  4. I like your blog on Facebook :)

  5. The reasons why I would love this bra are pretty endless. Most importantly though, I'm going to be transitioning from 1 child to 2, so I could really use anything that's hands-free. I think it would also be super helpful because I'm a university student, so at night I'm usually typing up papers or taking online exams...I would love to be able to pump and do that at the same time!

  6. Ok and I follow your blog too. Fingers crossed super hard!

  7. I'm obviously not pumping milk and don't need the bra but your video is seriously hysterical. I love how you can hear the machine pumping away.

  8. I'm not entering (though this bra makes me wish I were pumping again. not really), though I have to say the whole nips being sucked into the cones was hilarious. And I wish you would have done a dramatic black and white informercial type acting thing with you holding the pumping gear in your hand pretending to spill milk (but not REAL breastmilk, because DUH).
