Thanks to everyone who joined in last week; some at very short notice. Not surprisingly, a lovely set of posts that informed and inspired were linked up; and they’re all featured below. As the linky grows, I’m aiming to feature at least one post per week.
@Laura_Babykicks’ “10 signs you’re breastfeeding” post made me laugh so much. Check it out if you haven’t, you’ll see why.
@snot_bags post about things you’re not told about breastfeeding got me thinking about a number of things including ways that dads can support breastfeeding.
@belledubrighton reminded me of aspects of the early days of finding my breastfeeding feet, with her expressing with Medela post. Medela are fab in their online support for breastfeeding mums; definitely check out their Facebook page.
@GirlAppleWood’s post about why you wouldn’t see her #brelfie got me thinking about my aim in taking pictures of my son and I breastfeeding.
@diaryofUEM’s consideration of the ending of her of breastfeeding journey reminded me to cherish all aspects of my current breastfeeding experience because I don’t know when my son will decide he doesn’t need me in that way anymore. Precious Sparkle’s breastfeeding acrobatics isn’t always welcome but I suppose I’ll miss even that when he self weans.
@Wendy91’s letter to new breastfeeding mums is definitely one to read; even for old hands. It took me back memory lane and I found myself nodding again and again in agreement as I read her post. This is definitely one to share with interested pregnancy mums, and new breastfeeding mums if you know any.
@mojoblogs’ post, ‘Formular & Breastfeeding: what if we turn the table‘, left me curious about what she had in mind when she wrote it. It’ll be a very different infant feeding world if the tables were turned, for sure.
I was surprised to see that 2 posts from the link up was held in moderation for my approval, so do please share some commentluv on some of the posts you weren’t able to check out last week.
