There are so many things to talk about when it comes to breastfeeding...
Or we could talk about how breastfeeding can work as birth control (sometimes).
Or you could pull up a chair with a cup of coffee and a blueberry scone - and I could tell you about what it was like to nurse a toddler or how bittersweet it was to wean. While we're having a heart-to-heart, I might as well share my favorite places to nurse a baby in public.
Undoubtedly, breastfeeding is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I've read about it, researched it, been to breastfeeding groups, and interviewed lactation consultants. And, of course, I nursed my oldest daughter until she was almost two and I am nursing a newborn now.
To me, breastfeeding is a private thing - an intimate thing - a special gift that I choose to give to my babies for their optimal health and development. It has taught me a lot about love and about sacrifice and about what it means to be a mother.
I hope you'll join the conversation this weekend. There will be tips and product reviews and giveaways galore. Thanks in advance for participating!
