As most of you will already know im a fairly new blogger, so imagine my surprise at the start of this year when one of my all time favourite parenting brands – Medela responded to one of my tweets on Twitter mentioning that they were one of the top brands I would love to work with this year. Fast forward a few weeks, and it is with much excitement and delight that I can finally share the news that I will officially be collaborating with Medela on the blog.
I say collaborating with because that is exactly what it is. There will be no sponsored posts, no paid for reviews or recommendations and no paid for advertisements. I have chosen to collaborate with Medela because they are one of the parenting brands that I like, trust and believe in as a parent who uses their products. I feel this arrangement also then allows me to remain true to my blog and maintain the same approach and tone to my blogs that I usually take. This is important to me and hopefully to my readers too.
So now that the formalities are out of the way, I would like to announce our first collaboration – the February Breastfeeding Blog Series.
The blog series will run throughout the month of February with a number of personal blog posts that I hope will inspire, comfort and encourage readers. We will also be sharing your breastfeeding stories (more on that in a bit), have access to Medela’s lovely lactation consultant for a bit of a Q&A, have a list or two on all things breastfeeding thrown in for good measure and a fabulous competition to round things off at the end. Hopefully you’ll agree, February is shaping up to be an exciting month on the blog!
Now for the ask. As much as the series is about me sharing my personal experiences and infusing some of the expertise of Medela, I also want to hear from others on their experiences with breastfeeding so that we can create a blog series that is engaging and provides a balanced perspective on breastfeeding. If you have any breastfeeding stories that you would like to share to be featured on the blog as part of the series please get in touch. I would love to be able to feature as many of your stories as I can fit in. There are no word or content limits or restrictions, just the usual rules apply on not using any profanity, not posting to the detriment of others and using your own or attributable images.
So make sure you follow the blog or diarise February in your calendar. We don’t want you to miss it!
