Are you a breastfeeding mom?
Feel free to breastfeed outside the privacy of your home on Thursday (August 15). In support of National Breastfeeding Awareness Month in August – and to fight the stigma against breastfeeding in public –
TheBump.com is launching their second annual “Public Display of Breastfeeding” (PDB) campaign exclusively sponsored by The Boppy Company.
To make it even easier for moms to nurse in public on August 15, TheBump.com has partnered with local retailers in New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and Denver to provide a place for moms to gather and breastfeed. Moms in these cities are encouraged to stop by the following local events to meet other moms and show their breastfeeding pride:
Yummy Mummy 1201 Lexington Avenue (between 81st and 82nd streets) New York, NY 10028 12-3 p.m.
A Mother’s Haven Boutique & Educational Center 15928 Ventura Blvd, Suite 116 Encino, CA 91436 1-4 p.m.
Magic Beans The Prudential Center 776 Boylston Street Boston, MA 02116 12-3 p.m.

The first 30 moms to arrive at each PDB local event will receive a gift bag full of must-haves from Boon, Boppy, BabyLegs, Earth’s Best, pediped, Kanga Care and more.
If you visit TheBump.com – you’ll find breastfeeding resources and online events to participate in too. Alyssa Milano, Tia and Tamera Mowry, Tracy Anderson, Ali Landry and Melissa Joan Hart are among the celebrity profiles featured on TheBump.com/PDB with real breastfeeding stories and star-studded mama advice.
If you show your support on Twitter – you have a chance to win a huge gift bag filled with breastfeeding essentials including a Medela Pump In Style Advanced breast pump and a variety of swag from Boppy, such as a nursing pillow, travel pillow, nursing cover, slipcovers and more.
Tweet @thebump with the hashtag #PDB between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET on August 15 to be entered for a chance to win.
