I couldn’t believe some of the posts that I have seen where people were bashing nursing mothers for choosing to breastfeed her baby in public. Most of the posts that I saw said that breastfeeding was gross and they were complaining that they were offended because they saw a mother breastfeeding her baby in public (mostly in restaurants). When we were created,…Continue

Breastfeeding was on of those taboo topics that people just didn’t talk about when I was pregnant with my first child. As a new mom, I knew right away that I wanted to try breastfeeding my baby.

For the past few nights, Squeaker has slept in 5+ hour stretches! Pre-baby, I did not understand how this could possibly be a good thing, but after months of uncomfortable pregnancy sleep and 10 weeks of being in various states of consciousness–I feel like I’ve won the lottery! I have found sleep to be one of the most contentious topics in new mom land. Where does he sleep? Where do I sleep? Where does dad sleep? Is it okay for him to sleep in a chair? Can he sleep swaddled? Is he…Continue

I was super excited and nervous when I found out that I was expecting in September of 2010. Just a few weeks before I found out, I was watching my mother struggle with her battle with Pick’s disease. Pick’s disease is a rare form of Alzheimer’s that affects the frontal lobe of the brain. In August of 2010, she was in the final stages and was admitted to the ICU with severe case of pneumonia. My dad was out of town, so I spent the last few days with her at her bed side along with my…Continue

I nursed both of my boys for a year each. Now I have weaned my sweet Baby B and its a little bittersweet.
At around 10 months of age, I decided to slowly over the two month span work toward using a bottle regularly. I thought it was because of B's extreme love of nursing and cuddling, that was the reason I couldn't sleep at night anymore. Some people sleep really well with their little ones and co-sleeping is a magical bonding time. For me it meant lying awake the whole night counting…Continue
After approximately 2 weeks after delivering my daughter I started having breastfeeding complications. I was in so much pain that I just couldn't have her on my breasts, I had to start giving her the bottle. Following the recommendation I received from a lactation consultant, I rented a hospital grade breast pump to keep my supply until I was ready to breastfeed again.…

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…Continue
