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…

Can Mommy Pee in Private, Please! ~ Mom Blog ~

Yesterday I was telling my husband that I don't ever remember our other two kids being so connected to me as a baby, as in connected at the hip. Of course they loved their 'Mommy' still do as teenagers, but have funny ways of showing it and wanted to be with me, but this is a bit different.



With Hudson, if I stand up and attempt to walk out of the room, I have a whining combat crawler right behind me. It's quite pitiful, to say the least.… Continue

Breast-Feeding: Not Just for Women?

http://healthland.time.com/2010/10/08/breastfeeding-not-just-for-women/#more-11922



I grew up hearing from my dad that a woman can do anything a man can do. Now, as a parent, I try to impart that same wisdom to my own two girls. Still, biologically, there are some things gals can do that guys can't — breast-feed, for one.… Continue

A Tribute to my breasts! Funny really I promise!

So Wednesday the north country of AZ was hit hard by severe thunderstorms and 27 tornado warnings. Four that touched down where I live, and one that was just 6 miles from my house heading right for us. One tornado knocked a freight train off the tracks and picked up and moved diesels off the road! It made national headlines here. So glad we were spared!...… Continue

BlogHer 2010, Breastfeeding, and the Nestle Boycott

I’m itching to write my BlogHer post after reading many interesting post from other bloggers who are going. I’ve been wanting to write it for weeks but can’t find the time — trip to Germany, three editing and social media clients that want to be kept happy, the normal momsense (motherhood and wifyhood and a bit of nonsense thrown in), and then there’s that thing called sleep I need to fit in once in a while. Just once in a while.



So here is the compressed version of my… Continue

Traveling to Germany with a Little Boy (and Breastfeeding in Public)

The second day of our visit to my girlfriend’s farm we spent at the local pool. For such a small town in the country, they have a very sophisticated pool with tons of water features, and the boys were in and out of the water for four hours. Since I didn’t have a bathing suite and had just burned my skin to a crisp on Nantucket, I was in no mood to swim, so Karen “swam” with the boys and I took… Continue

Parenting Truths Revealed…

Things “They” Never Tell You…

As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on…

I Love Being a Breastfeeding Mama!

Ok, so I posted this on my blog over at Blogger.com but I felt like I should post it here as well.

I love being a breastfeeding mother. Yes, you read that right, I love breastfeeding.

Let me share with you some of those ups and downs.…

Extended Breastfeeding Past the Toddler Age

Today is quite a special day — I have been breastfeeding my son for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days. Yay for extended breastfeeding!



When I started breastfeeding, I didn’t have a goal in mind of how long I wanted to do it. I had such breastfeeding problems during the first two weeks with sore nipples, all I was concerned with was learning how to breastfeed correctly so it would stop hurting so much. Thinking about how long I was going to do it was furthest from my mind, all I… Continue

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

Are Mothers Who Choose Not to Breastfeed Selfish?

While pregnant or even before, every woman inevitably thinks about the topic of breastfeeding. Will I breastfeed my baby? For how long? I think most women have the best intentions and try to breastfeed and then stop after different periods of time – they might breastfeed a week, they make it through the rough first few weeks and go on to nurse for a few months or a year, and then there are the extended breastfeeding moms like me.



Breastfeeding was one of the things I most looked… Continue

At the End of the Rainbow: A Breastfeeding Story

When I was pregnant, there were so many things I was looking forward to. I remember holding my hands on my stomach, trying to touch the mystery that was my baby moving inside me. I couldn't wait to see what he looked like, or breathe in his new baby smell. I couldn't wait until I could hold him in my arms, touch his skin. I wanted to hear his cries and be there to comfort him.



Of all the things I was looking forward to, I can easily say that breastfeeding was not one of… Continue
