I’m Celebrating My Amazing Facebook Community with a Giveaway!

I love Code Name: Mama’s Facebook page – for completely selfish reasons. It’s where I have gotten to know many of my readers on a more personal level (stop by to chat about things like sex and post-baby bodily functions!), it’s where most of the conversations happen about articles relevant to me and my readers, and it allows for easy, fast sharing and conversing at any hour of the day or night (like the time my readers mobilized to raise well over $500 in one day to get Karen to Haiti to help train local midwives).

To celebrate this amazing community and say thank you to my friends on Facebook, I’m hosting a fabulous giveaway blitz.

Between now and whenever Code Name: Mama’s Facebook page reaches 5,555 likes, I’m going to be introducing you to some fabulous natural parenting companies – many of which are WAHM’s (and WAHD’s!). Each one of them will be giving away a gift certificate or product as part of Code Name: Mama’s Facebook Giveaway Blitz.1

The 20+ prizes in this giveaway are worth more than $550!!

Two Easy Ways to Enter

  1. Entering is easy in the Rafflecopter widget below. You get entries for liking the pages of each company featured here. Be sure to like all of the pages for 50 bonus entries!
  2. Check in at Code Name: Mama’s Facebook page every day. In the days and weeks to come, I’ll be sharing fun questions and prompts related to each of the companies. Everyone who comments on the Giveaway Blitz Facebook threads will get an extra entry (one extra entry per thread, and I’ll only count entries from the day I post the question2).

Participating Companies and Prizes

Here are the prizes up for grabs!

Lactation Cookies from Making Mama’s Milk & More

Making Mama’s Milk & More is a company that was started by Dori, a stay at home mom of five children. She had some issues with supply when she had her first child at age 18. She didn’t have any support and did not understand that there were things that would help her body produce more breastmilk. When Dori gave birth to her third child in 2008, she knew that she would have to research everything to be successful. As she was researching galactagogues, she discovered that she was not the only woman to have supply issues. It tugged on her heart strings, and as she was successful at boosting her breast milk supply, she wanted to do something to help all the other women boost theirs too!

Making Mama’s Milk & More is giving away a one month supply of lactation cookies (ARV $48).

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  1. By the way, I’m not getting anything free for doing this giveaway, nor are most of these companies monthly sponsors of Code Name: Mama. But I have used and loved products from many of the companies on this list.
  2. Why will I only count entries from the day I post the question? Because it would be incredibly difficult to be continuously scrolling back to keep track of entries posted later. Recording names the next morning will make it easier on me, your unpaid giveaway host. {wink wink}

"Code Name: Mama’s Fabulous Giveaway Blitz!"

  1. Tina

    Thanks for the giveaways. I love following CNM on FB because I see conversations that I don’t witness in my real life, about natural birth, gentle discipline, etc.

  2. Heather Burris   crafteegirl

    Thanks for the opportunity! I don’t like getting feeds via email because they will likely sit in my inbox forever. Facebook makes sure I see them, but without having to do something with those that don’t apply to me. Thanks again!

  3. Jen F

    I like following these companies on facebook because a lot of what they have to say is very interesting and as someone who does not have children yet I like to know what types of products are out there to complement my growing cloth diaper stash

  4. Dawn Green

    This gives me something else to look forward to as I enter day two past my due date and still no babe,

  5. Jessica

    I love following CNM and other natural parenting blogs and companies because it gives me gentle reminders throughout the day why I make the choices I do for my family. I also find I learn a lot from these wonderful folks.

  6. Ivy S   Isharifpour

    I like to follow natural parenting blogs on facebook and other ways because I believe in a natural way of parenting. I practice AP, positive discipline, etc. It is always nice to find new resources and natural parenting blogs/companies are a great way to find them. Especially when those things come up in my news feed.

  7. Robin Leighton

    Thanks for bringing these companies to the forefront. :-)

  18. BEcky   RebeccaFruits

    I love following natural blogs to find products I didn’t know about, people I didn’t know about and great information to help raise my child.

  19. Ali K   AliKayK

    I often feel isolated in my family because the way I raise my children is different from extended family. It’s hard to be under a microscope like that. I appreciate having the natural community be so open and forthright on issues that I’m interested in- I’ve learned a lot as a mom and feel supported in my choices. Thanks for doin’ what you do. :)

  20. Susan Alexander

    I love to follow blogs like this because otherwise I wouldn’t get very much good info on natural-minded methods.

  21. Natalie B   BlanchNatalie

    I love reading Natural Parenting blogs, as it gives me access to a wealth of information and personal experiences that I have learn from. I love connecting with like-minded people online, as I struggle to find people with similar beliefs locally.

  22. Alicyn   mrslaserbeam

    I follow your page and others like it for the discussions.

  23. Carrie Robinson   frugalfoodiemom

    Since giving birth to my daughter in February, I have been striving to become a more natural and green parent. I am trying to build a better and safer world for her to grow up in. I follow natural parenting social media to keep on top of the newest tips and trends. :)

    I love reading natural parenting blogs for the support and because I often find new ways to think about all aspects of parenting.
