Breastfeeding awareness week - do you have a breastfeeding 'story'?

This week (19th June to 26th June) is breast feeding awareness week and all across the country proud mothers are taking to the streets, the shopping centers, the parks, and showing that breast feeding is natural, it’s normal, it’s nothing to be scared of, or embarrassed about, and it’s proven to be the best start for our babies.

My boobs were my boobs, and I couldn’t imagine them in the mouth of a little baby.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
