2021 was a momentous year for us. Having just launched boobingit.com towards the end of 2020, this year was our first full year in operation and we’ve been blown away by the response. Not only have we covered lots of amazing stories on boobingit.com and on the podcast, but we’ve built an amazing community complete with wonderful contributors and breastfeeding parents.
We’ve also had the privilege of collaborating with some fantastic baby and parenting brands to bring you top-quality content and awesome giveaways. 2021 will also be the year we published our first ebook – Breastfeeding for Beginners. We’re looking forward to what 2022 brings and to continue to inform, inspire and empower you all on your breastfeeding journey – whatever that may look like.
So, here our our stand-out moments from the past year!
Reported on big news stories
You can always rely on boobingit to cover the big news stories in and around breastfeeding. Often it’s our contributors who share the latest and most important information with us all. If you have a breaking story you’d like us to cover, then get in touch.
Shared 50+ amazing mama stories
So many of you send us your breastfeeding stories each and every week and we’re so grateful. Every story is different and unique and we are honoured to share them with you all. If you’d like to share your breastfeeding experience, you can submit your story here.
Interviewed breastfeeding trailblazers on the boobingit podcast
This year we hosted 19 episodes of the boobingit podcast and got to interview some really fantastic special guests and tackle important topics. As well as being available to listen to on boobingit.com and most major podcast players, the boobingit podcast can also be found on Pinter & Martin Radio.
Rocked World Breastfeeding Week and Black Breastfeeding Week
In August we celebrated World Breastfeeding Week and Black Breastfeeding Week with a series of special live interviews, podcast episodes, opinion articles and giveaways. The feedback from you guys was immense and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!
Released our free guide to breastfeeding after giving birth
We constantly hear from parents about how little they had thought about or prepared for breastfeeding once they’d given birth. We wanted to help take the mystery out of what to expect with our guide ‘Breastfeeding after giving birth’. Best of all, it’s free to read now!
Published our first ebook, Breastfeeding for Beginners
One of our proudest accomplishments this year was publishing our ebook ‘Breastfeeding for Beginners’. Written by boobingit founder Ruth Maguire, it’s a positive and practical guide to the ins and outs of breastfeeding from babyhood and beyond. You can get your copy on boobingit.com or on Amazon now.
Expanded the boobingit shop
This year we added beautiful art prints, facemasks and a very special boob mug to our collection of t-shirts and tote bags. You guys have loved the latest additions and the boob mug has been a bestseller in the run-up to Christmas! View the full boobingit collection here.
