Weaning

I am in the beginning stages of weaning Garrett off the breast. The past month it seems I've had nothing but issues... Clogged ducts, supply dropping, etc. Not to mention Garrett really doesn't want to nurse anymore, he's too distracted and independent.…

Mom’s When Did You Transition Your Baby from the Bottle to a Sippy Cup?

When I took my son to his 9 month old well baby check up, his doctor told me that she wanted to make sure that he was off the bottle around his first birthday.  I really didn’t think this was going to be possible to wean him from the bottle by the time he was a year old but it was easier than I expected it to…

The Big Weanie

I gave myself a deadline, if you will, for weaning Aidan from breastfeeding.  I did this because I am a planner and I like to do things in a well thought out and calculated manner.  Giving myself the deadline of Memorial Day Weekend planted a seed in my mind that said in March and April I needed to pump pump pump and freeze as much breast milk as possible so that he could still have breast milk, just not from the “tap.”  Then, in May, I’d start replacing one breastfeeding with a bottle in a…

More Thoughts on Breast is Best: Guilt-led breastfeeding





As a vocal breastfeeding advocate, a sex educator and a supporter of survivors of sexual abuse during their childbearing year I have ask myself many times about the validity of “pushing” bf’ing. Yes, breastmilk is best, but if we guilt woman into breastfeeding aren’t we hurting the cause?

And what do I mean by cause? Is it a cause? If we stopped pushing Breast Is Best as if it was a winning hearts and minds military campaign…

The Breast is Best Campaign in Nova Scotia- Is It Working?

I used to believe that breast is always best. I gave the stink eye to bottlefeeding moms, I towed the Breast is Best partyline.

I was wrong.

I passionately believe that breastmilk is the optimal food for your baby. That part is based on science and economics, not opinion. But is feeding your babe at the breast really best for every woman?

For me, as a sexual abuse survivor, breastfeeding was amazingly therapeutic. Breastfeeding my sons transformed my relationship with my…

Earth Promise: A No-Brainer for the Summer Traveller

June 1st, 2010

airport-water It’s hot and we need to stay hydrated. But to what expense? If you are an avid airline traveler, then you know the drill: guzzle down that $3 (and at some airports $5!!) bottled water before walking through the security check point. How many of you have actually tossed that half full (or half empty) bottle into the trash (or hopefully…

Review: Mimijumi Very Hungry Bottle

In my house, Breast is Best. As many of you know breastfeeding is very important to me. Of all the things that motherhood brings, I think the gift of feeding, nurturing and bonding with my daughter is the greatest. I feel I am among a lucky minority of women who had no problem breastfeeding my daughter. I know so many woman who have struggled. Shed countless tears. Experienced pain and heartache and many who in the end, were unable to continue breastfeeding at all. But, lets face the facts.… Continue
