Welcome to the 10th Breastfeeding and I blog link party! What a Summer it’s been; I can’t believe we’ve passed the half way mark for the school holidays.
Happy World Breastfeeding Month to US linkers and readers; hoping more mothers and their families receive the support they need to make breastfeeding work for them.
Thanks to the lovely folks that linked up last week; good reads as usual, and all inspired in some way by World Breastfeeding Week. It would be lovely if you could drop by a day or two after you’ve linked up to check out posts that are linked up later than yours.
Please follow the linky rules, especially about the minimum comment expectation to share some blog love, and also commenting with #BreastfeedingandI to share the linky.
@wend91 passionately and insightfully discussed whether baby feeding rooms help or hinder breastfeeding in public. This a very important issue that needs to be talked about, an area that clearly needs changing. I mean, who fancies having their lunch surrounded by smelly toilet activities. It’s also very interesting to consider what the feeding chair in all its varieties, in the different corners of various baby feeding / changing facilities, actually represent.
Wendy, please grab the code for your featured post badge.
@juliecookies shares top tips for breastfeeding mothers returning to work after maternity leave; so important working breastfeeding mums / moms know their rights.
@MumsnetKent shared her 5 most recent breastfeeding friendly outfits, best buys. Comfy nursing bras are vital, give me Frugi nursing outfits any day (even when I’m not breastfeeding), and I’m so glad I was told about Muslin Squares by a mummy friend. 🙂
@musingmumma shared about how she came to donate her frozen pumped milk that her daughter didn’t want. So lovely to find a new home for the liquid gold that breast milk is; what a gift of the milk of human kindness! Would you donate if you could?
@liquoriceuk shared a list of posts she’s written about her breastfeeding journey; all so inviting to be read. Each title touched different emotions, either in relation to what she must have been through or in relation to a similar phase on my journey. I look forward to reading through her story in weeks ahead.
@MommaBossBlog wrote about her breastfeeding journey with her son, especially for #BreastfeedingandI. It’s a good reminder that the decision to keep breastfeeding or not isn’t always about lack of support. The reason to breastfeeding or not, and how it is done is indeed down to each mum and child. As for celebrating World Breastfeeding Week, what about celebrating Formula?
