Breastfeeding and I Linky 9


Skip to: Mentions | Rules and Badge | Linkup

Welcome to the 9th Breastfeeding and I blog link party! So sorry I missed a week; it’s been very hectic with World Breastfeeding Week; I underestimated how time consuming it would be.

Happy World Breastfeeding Week; hoping society does more to make breastfeeding and work, work better for mothers and their families!

Thanks to the lovely folks that linked up two weeks ago; good reads as usual. Please remember to add the badge and comment with #BreastfeedingandI to share the linky.

@BabyChaos11‘s first week’s diary of weaning her 19 months old to 2 feeds per day, due to acid reflux tugged on my heart. It’s so sad that a breastfeeding journey with a self weaning goal has to end. Life hey, sometimes important decisions are taken out of hands and we have to come to terms with it. What difficult choices we have to make sometimes, for love.

Jenni, please grab the code for your featured post badge.

@allpastmidnight clearly sets out the reasons why she is glad when anti-breastfeeding news hits the headlines; thoughtful points to read. I’m not a feminist but this post got me thinking about the role of misogyny in some of the current attitudes to breastfeeding in public.

@budgetfoodmummy‘s post about why she chose to bottle feed her babies really highlights the importance of receiving quality breastfeeding support at the right time. I like her honesty about some of the reality of breastfeeding, especially in the early days – it can be painful and time consuming.

@juliecookies‘s shares 3 time saving pumping tips she learnt from pumping at work. I know it made a difference to me when I learnt from my LLL leader, that I didn’t have to wash pump sets after each pumping session, provided I stored them in the fridge. Her post fits in with this year’s World Breastfeeding Week’s theme about making breastfeeding work at work.

  1. Ooh your blog sure has been busy this week. I don’t think I’ve been able to read them all, but great work during breastfeeding awareness week! I’m linking up my own post for breastfeeding awareness week, and since it is breastfeeding awareness month all month in the US, I’ll have a few more new posts to link up to future #breastfeedingandi linkys 🙂

  2. Hi! I look after the Mumsnet Kent local page and also write our blog – it’s got a bit of a baby focus at the moment because my youngest is 7 months old 🙂
