Lactation Link Seattle class + promo codes

By | Breastfeeding, Classes, Recommended Products

I had so much fun teaching a SOLDOUT class in Seattle!  It was so fun to meet my Seattle mamas and mamas-to-be!  We also had some fantastic sponsors and a grab bag for each attendee worth $78! Thank you to the Parent Trust for Washington Center for Strong Families for allowing us to use their classroom.

OUR SPONSORS

gifts for lactation class

Milkful

Dina Carey from Milkful really cares about what goes into her lactation oat bars!  Her sugar content is the lowest I’ve seen without sacrificing taste!  Perfect snack to throw in your diaper bag or keep on your nightstand to satisfy that hunger and keep you from reaching for a candy bar. Use code ‘LLINK’ for 25% off your order!

Copper Pearl

Each attendee got a stylish and functional baby bib from Copper Pearl.  These bibs are a lifesaver from 5 outfit changes a day and a million loads of laundry!  We also gave away 2 of their multi-use covers to our attendees. Use code ‘LLINK’ for 15% off.

Bamboobies

I recommend that every breastfeeding mom use breast pads, especially in the early days.  While breastfeeding shouldn’t hurt, there is a certain tenderness that can come in those early days.  Breast pads provide protection!  Bamboobies has a comfortable, money-saving, and eco-friendly solution in their reusable bamboo nursing pads.  Use promo code “LLINK10” for 10% off your order.

When we decided to come to Seattle to teach a class I got a chance to look at several area photographers’ work and Heather’s stood out!  She is a talented natural light photogragher.  She does maternity, birth story, newborn, family, and lifestyle photography in the Seattle area.  Not to mention she is fun and easy to hang out with!  She is offering a 15% discount to Lactation Link readers on any photo sessions (excluding a mini) if you book with her this week.

Seattle supporter:

Thank you so much to 8 Limbs yoga who gave each attendee a free yoga class and also gave away a one-month pass!  They have 4 locations in the Seattle area and have classes starting as low as $8/class.

Extra goodies:

Thanks to Little Poppy Co and Fin&Vince for providing extra goodies for our grab bags!

Class Reviews from our Lactation Link Moms!

moms

 

“Very informational! Helped me to be more comfortable with breastfeeding. It wasn’t a huge class so that made it easier to ask questions and feel comfortable.”

“Great information. Thorough but not too long! Gave hands on practice with dolls and helpful videos. Also, loved the goodie bags and giveaways!”

“Lindsey was always happy to answer any question. I also loved that she added in some humor and showed her personality!”

Upcoming Events

Couldn’t make it to the Seattle event?  No problem!  My classes are available via video to click & watch!  They come with a notes outline and can be watched over and over!  The 3 video bundle {Breastfeeding Basics, Intermediate Breastfeeding, and Pumping and Storing Breastmilk} is your best value and I recommend taking all three courses before delivery!  Many mamas take them after delivery as well. I have upcoming in-person classes in UT monthly, and I am doing a class in Las Vegas on 5/21.  Grab a girlfriend and get registered!

FLASH SALE & SUPPORT CIRCLE

Today I’m announcing a 24-hour flash sale on my video class bundle! Make sure to follow me on periscope (@lindsey_shipley).  Just download the app, type in my username, add me, and turn on notifications for my broadcasts.  It’s a fun way to answer your questions and interact live!  Like a virtual support circle or girls lunch.    You can only get the code over on periscope! My broadcast will be available live this afternoon (1PM mountain) & on replay for 24 hours only.  I’d love to take your questions over there too.

Thanks for coming by,

Lindsey Shipley, RN, IBCLC
