Welcome to our fourth #monthofmummyhood – our name for May and in which we stretch out that loving, feel-good Mother's Day Sunday into a whole month to celebrate all it means to be a mum - the highs, the lows and everything in between! We spend our May doing what mums do so selflessly every single day: give without expecting anything in return. Giving newborn hats. Giving awesome prizes. Giving our appreciation of mother’s groups far and wide. Giving support, advice and hope for mums of all walks of life. So whether you're a mum-to-be, a new mum, an experienced mum or a grandmum, we hope you'll join in the fun, games, competitions and feel-good support we're putting out there this month.
Here’s what we have planned!
Daily giveaway for mums-to-be
Mummyhood starts when baby is in the womb and that instinctive need to protect your child kicks in. It’s a never-ending, exhaustive effort to do so, so we thought we’d help out in the sun-protection department by giving away newborn hat packs to mums-to-be*.
Upload an image of your ultrasound (for babies due from April 1, 2022) to receive a Protect the Potential gift pack and be in the running for other prizes.
*Capped at 4000 entries.
FREE newborn hat with purchases over $60*
Every order over $60* via our website in May (excluding any sale events) will receive a Protect the Potential gift pack which includes a newborn-size white legionnaire hat and sun-safety information booklet (until stocks last).
Our plan is to start as many newborn babies on their hat-styling journey as possible and we hope you’ll help us spread our hats far and wide by gifting this pack (if you don’t need it yourself!) to a new mum friend, expecting family member or perhaps you could make someone’s day by handing it to a pregnant stranger! Give and enjoy the feeling it gives you too!
*Capped at first 1000 sales. Sales must be $60 or over and from current available stock.
We will draw one person from our ultrasound entrants to win a $500 Woolworths or Coles voucher. Spend it however you wish: on ready-made meals, regular groceries, on nappies or formula, or even just on chocolate for yourself!
Tell us about that fantastic group of women in your life and how they’ve made the motherhood journey a little easier for you. We’ll shower a special group with a mums and bubs day out at Bedhead HQ.
WIN a box of pampery goodies!
We’ve got our linen Heritage hats, beautiful Wot Not all-natural skin products for mum and bub, a silk eye mask, quartz roller, beautiful loose tea, a diffuser and essential oils. Everything for pampering and relaxing – something we don’t do enough of as mums.
Join the 'We love our Bedhead hats' Facebook group to enter from May 9.
Match your mini!
We’ve got a couple of these giveaways sprinkled throughout the month on our socials: win a beautiful mum and mini Heritage Bundle, plus some Wot Not goodies for you and bub too.
Come and be part of the conversation this month on our social feeds and blog. Along with our giveaways we've got fun interactive Stories for you to participate in, helpful Q+As that might help another mum and yourself, stories of motherhood, great free downloads and activities and much more. We’d love you to spread the word to your friends, families and followers on social media and make use of the #monthofmummyhood hashtag – especially to those about to experience mummyhood for the first time! Our aim is to share the warm and fuzzies, the mishaps and mayhem, wisdom and fun of motherhood far and wide.
We hope you’ll all take part! Enjoy your #monthofmummyhood!
