Free Nursing Covers & Baby Slings

2012 Update:  
The promo code still works, so this info is still valid!


If you're a baby mama or have a friend who's pregnant or has a baby, 
this might just be very useful.
Udder Covers and Seven Slings are giving away Nursing Covers & Baby Slings for $0+shipping.  
The Promo code is: breastfeeding.


Select the design you want, scroll down to the cart, put in the promo code, and the total will automatically reduce to just the delivery charge.  You can only get one breastfeeding cover and one sling, it won't work if you order two at once.
For Australian and international shipping, I wrote some more notes down below...
I just checked it now, promo code: breastfeeding still works.  So even if you're viewing this blog late, try it out anyway, you might be lucky.

Of course I didn't believe it 100% when I heard that they were giving away free nursing covers and baby slings.  I mean, who gives away quality goods for free?  But, for around $10 delivery to US, or $15.95 delivery to Australia, I thought it was an acceptable gamble since everything about the companies looked legitimate and you can pay by paypal.

Well guess what...
It's for real.  Because a week or two later, two packages showed up with these inside:

(Sorry he's not looking so genki here!  He wanted to play with Daddy's phone...)
Very quick and easy to use.  Mine is a size 2.  I'm 166cm tall and it's a perfect fit.

 Isn't Baby Boy clever?:

 I ordered the gift set with the nursing bracelet and breast pads for an extra $5:
 I wish I'd had these when Baby Boy was a baby!  They would have been so useful!  In any case, I definitely plan on younger siblings for Baby Boy, so that's what I ordered them for.  Bargain.  Very happy mama.

So why free?  I have no idea.  Do you know?  
I guess they cover costs from the inflated delivery charge(?)


(***P.S.  When I ordered the breastfeeding cover, I had to email them to place my order to Australia because on the original cart it won't add extra postage to Australia.  They replied soon and told me the amount and paypal payment instructions.  I had paid the original $9.95 shipping at checkout, and then I paid $6 later by paypal.


Udder Covers shopping cart says "We ship to the USA and Canada", but they do ship to Australia too, you can select Australia when you put in your address.  You just need to email them about shipping because the shipping cost doesn't adjust.
I wonder if they ship worldwide? If you're in Japan or France I guess you could try emailing to ask.  Then let me know their reply. ^_^
Seven Slings checkout was easier as the shipping adjusted automatically.)
(Aug23 update: Since I ordered, they've both increased shipping prices, please check when you order.)




Sep 27 update:  I just thought I should share with you about Oyako.co.nz as another option for baby carriers.
Oyako is owned by my sister and they produce excellent quality Mei-Tai and Ring Sling Baby Carriers and Baby Slings.

Dinner...

Since we're on the topic of non-Japanese things, here's what we had for dinner tonight:  Chinese Hot Pot.  With lots of Schezuan Pepper, dried chilli etc.  Served cooking on the portable gas cooker on the table.  My husband and I love this stuff.  You eat it pretty much the same way as Japanese Onabe.

(I used a wok cos with Chinese Hot Pot you have to fry the spices in oil before you add the water.  And Chinese don't use a donabe anyway.)
Do you like Chinese Food?

  2. Meredith>yeah they will appreciate that for sure! My sister was ordering them and it seems they've put shipping charge up a few dollars. I guess that's to cover the costs of the promotion?
