Blog Giveaway: So that's what they're for! + Birth Pack

It's time for a blog giveaway! It's been 2 months since I went back to work and things have been quite hectic.  My top priority now is de-cluttering our home - you wouldn't believe the amount of stuff we've accumulated in 5 years (marriage, having N, then now E).  De-cluttering is good because we've been finding things that we thought we had lost.  I also found some books which I realized I had bought 2 of - so I'm going to be giving away one of the copies I have!

One of these books would be Janet Tamaro's "So that's what they're for!" book on breastfeeding basics.

The book is mostly text but is written in a "girl-friend" style format.  The author covers breastfeeding from start to finish (weaning).  She also includes some stories and anecdotes from moms who shared their breastfeeding problems and successes.
A look inside the book
If you're a new mom who is already breastfeeding - I wouldn't recommend it at all since it is text-heavy and let's face it - new mom, lack of sleep, crying baby - mom would most likely throw the book out! However, I would recommend this book for pregnant moms to read in their 2nd-3rd trimester.  The book is reader-friendly and the author explains breastfeeding in the most simple way possible.

This giveaway is for the 2nd edition of the book (as pictured).  To enter to win, visit my Facebook page and leave a comment on how far along are you and what your biggest breastfeeding worry is.
Birth Pack
Once you've left a comment on my FB page, leave a comment in this entry in the DISQUS comment box that you've done so.  Please note that your comment must be made in the DISQUS comment box to count.  Comments made through the Blogger comment box won't be counted.  I have to do this because Blogger does not record the email address which makes it difficult to contact the winner.
One entry per person please.   Contest is open to pregnant moms with delivery address within Metro Manila. And since this is a pregnant mom contest, I will add a birth pack consisting of 3 huge maternity pads, 2 disposable panties and 2 peri-plus perineal cold pack.

Contest is open from 1 May 2012 until 8 May 2012.  One winner will be notified via email and will have 3 days to respond to claim her prize!

I'm not sure if this is the Disqus comment box.. I love your blog. I already left a comment on your facebook page: 
Hi Jenny, I'm on my 8th month now.. My biggest breastfeeding worry since I'm a new mom is: when will my milk be available because it seems that I still don't have it right now; if my milk supply be enough; and will I be able to successfully perform breastfeeding to my (incoming) newborn.

Hi I'm 34yr old 1st time mom,8n1/2 mos now. I'm really worried as I still see no signs of any first few drops of leaking milk on my breast. I really am for breastfeeding my baby as I know it is the best for him but I'm really worried that I won't be able to give him milk when I give birth this June.
