It’s World Breastfeeding Week! And Latch On 3 Event begins

As you may know, if you’ve been reading along for any length of time, I’m pretty passionate about supporting breastfeeding moms.

I do believe giving our babies breast milk is the best choice (although I understand circumstances where this is not possible). And, I worked through about 12-14 weeks of struggling to breastfeed my first son, so I know the importance of a strong support system.

I battled with our first son through weeks of pain, tongue tie, and poor latch. Even what i suspect was a lanolin allergy! But eventually we breastfed for about sixteen months before he self weaned.

I know other moms have shared my struggles and pain….but so many just don’t talk about it that most of us feel alone and a failure. Which is why I started the Latch On Breastfeeding Awareness event on my blog in 2010! To lend support, provide information, and share great breastfeeding news and products with my readers!

You can see my event sponsors in the sidebar, and read along as this year I share posts on:

Are you a breastfeeding mom? Do you have any questions or topics you hope to see covered?

I always had to unswaddle. I had a sleepy baby who needed that cooler air and my touch to keep her awake and nursing. Plus I most often would change her diaper after feedings so I had to unswaddle anyway.

I hope this isn't a dumb question. When breastfeeding at night, what works best? Keeping baby in swaddle and staying in bed or go into nursery and unswaddle? Just wondering what works best for other moms.

you and your baby will figure it out. In the beginning (the first week, after that my son didn't want swaddled any more) I would unswaddle my son to nurse him. We would nurse in a chair in the living room once he was in his own room. When he was sleeping in my room I just nursed him in my bed. When he got older and wanted to nurse nonstop for teething relief he just nursed in my bed also. Just try didn't ways and see what works best for you and your baby.
