It’s here! Today (8/15) is The Bump and Boppy’s Second Annual Public Display of Breastfeeding Day (PDB)! If you haven’t already, take the pledge to breastfeed in public today and attend one of our local events. Not a mom yet? You can still be part of the boob-olution by pledging to breastfeed when baby arrives! Our goal? Empower moms and show the world that if a mom chooses to breastfeed, it’s her right to feed baby whenever (and wherever) she needs to.

While you’re showing your support by breastfeeding in public today (cover up or not – however you’re comfortable), don’t forget to enter our PDB giveaway.

How to enter:

Follow The Bump on Twitter and tweet at @thebump with the hashtag #PDB and tell us where you’re breastfeeding today. Be sure to include both @thebump and #PDB in your tweet so we can see it (and to ensure you’re entered to win!).

What you can win:

We’ll be choosing two grand prize winners this year: One winner will receive the Medela Breast Pump (ARV $299.99) and the other winner will receive the Boppy Prize Pack (ARV $238). Wondering what’s inside the Boppy Prize Pack? You’ll win: one Boppy Luxe Feeding & Infant Support Pillow, one Boppy Nursing Pillow, one Boppy Travel Pillow, one Boppy Nursing Cover, one Boppy Tee, a variety of Boppy Pillow Slipcovers; and one Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump. We’ll be counting entries tweeted until 12 a.m. EST, and then we’ll select a random winner.

HOW TO ENTER:

You may enter the Sweepstakes by tweeting a message as a targeted reply to @TheBump using Twitter’s “@Reply” function, with the hashtag “#PDB”, during the Sweepstakes Entry Period.  Limit one (1) entry per person/Twitter account.  If your Twitter account is set to “protected mode”, your message will not be visible in Sponsor’s @Reply inbox, and you will not be entered in the Sweepstakes.  Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by your online carrier apply.  If you opt to receive Sponsor’s tweets via your wireless mobile device (which may only be available via participating wireless carriers), standard text messaging rates, airtime and carrier charges will apply for each text message sent or received from your handset according to the terms and conditions of your service agreement with your wireless carrier.  Sponsor is not responsible for any charges related to tweets made by or messages received via mobile phone.  Incomplete or late entries will be disqualified.  An entry will be deemed to have been made by the “authorized account holder” of the Twitter account utilized at the time the entry is made. For purposes herein, the “authorized account holder” refers to the person assigned by Twitter to an account.  If an entrant is determined to have sent more than one entry, that entrant will be disqualified.

For the avoidance of doubt, acceptance of entries or submissions will not be deemed to waive any provisions of these Official Rules, and the entrant may subsequently be disqualified.

Potential Prize winners will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability Release, and where legal, a Publicity Release within ten (10) days of notification attempt. Noncompliance within this time period will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the Prize, and Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, award the applicable Prize to an alternate winner selected at random from all eligible entries received.
