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:
- Breastfeeding the second time
- Top breastfeeding accessories
- Top nursingwear fashions
- And great giveaways!
Are you a breastfeeding mom? Do you have any questions or topics you hope to see covered?
