Free shipping & free earrings at Destination Maternity!

Well, this is kind of an odd one, but you get free earrings from the Destination Maternity family of stores this weekend (today through November 29) if you spend over a certain amount. You can click on the banners and links below for full details. I guess what's nice about that is your earrings should fit the whole pregnancy, even if everything else has grown…

In addition, there's a FREE SHIPPING offer on Cyber Monday only (November 29) if you spend over a certain amount. Codes and details are also below.

Free earrings all weekend:

Free shipping for Cyber Monday:

I have shopped at Motherhood Maternity at the mall for maternity clothes. There are a lot of things I appreciate about Motherhood Maternity and the other stores, such as a wide selection of stylish pregnancy and nursing wear and bras, a newly friendly policy on in-store breastfeeding (there were stickers up last time I was there), and — I'll admit it — a funny attachable bump in the dressing room, so when you try clothes on early in pregnancy you can see what you'll look like as your pregnancy progresses! One thing I do not at all appreciate is Destination Maternity's partnership with a formula company and association with aggressive formula marketing tactics, a violation of the WHO Code. Please be aware of this and make sure NOT to check the box labeled "YES! I want to receive free coupons, discounts, information, and offers from our preferred partners!" if you order online. In stores, you can also request to be removed from the marketing list. It's this sort of thing that makes me feel conflicted about recommending the Destination Maternity stores at all, but I did just find some sweet jeans there, which is always a challenge during pregnancy. If anyone has thoughts on the dilemma, let me know.

(My saying this is not a condemnation of parents who use formula; it is a reaction against the unethical marketing of formula, which has been proven to be detrimental to parents' free and informed choice when it comes to feeding their infants.)
