Welcome to the Breastfeeding and I Project page.

Context

I struggled to breastfeed and it took a lot of so much to make it. I plan to write more about this in the coming months. Whilst I believe that human breastmilk is the best food for human babies, I also accept that breastfeeding (directly or expressed) is not necessarily the best for the wellbeing of every mother and their family. I appreciate that not all women want to, and not all mums can partially or fully breastfeed, for a range of different reasons. I also acknowledge that men can potentially breastfeed. And you know what? I think there is enough room for all of us when it comes to feeding our infants and toddlers.

I came across many resources on my breastfeeding journey and I wished there was a place where they were all be collated. I can’t find many useful links again because I can’t remember the google search keyword that led me to them.

In this project, I’m going to attempt to do this – collate as much breastfeeding information in one place as possible.

I’d like to create a kind of interactive breastfeeding central to find links to a range of helpful information about breastfeeding; raging from tips  outfits  accessories ⇒ helpful organisations. I also want it to be an e-lounge for positive and constructive conversations about infant feeding in general and breastfeeding in particular.

Breastfeeding is a community affair because it has health and financial implications for society. It is also a family affair because it has physical and emotional ramifications for the wellbeing of mother and child, and thus the rest of the household. Even more importantly, breastfeeding is a personal choice and each person that it concerns interacts with it based on a range of factors. Hence the title, Breastfeeding and I; my attempt to capture the individual engagement with the issue.

The #BreastfeedingandI Linky is a very important part of this project; so are the Facebook group and page I’ll be creating to share relevant blog posts and news. I also have 2 breastfeeding pin boards: breastfeeding and breastfeeding in the news and I’ll be reorganising these to support this project.

Overall Project Aims

Back to the top

I want to create a space to:

  • to relate and inform
  • to react, and better still respond to breastfeeding related issues
  • share breastfeeding knowledge and experiences, and reminisce about them
  • to inspire, motivate, and challenge; and to be inspired, motivated, and challenged
  • to contribute to ongoing discussions about infant feeding in general and breastfeeding in particular etc.

This is not a place for bottle vs breast divide or formula vs breast milk battles. It is a place for cordial discussions about you and your small and big babies’ feeding journey in relation to breastfeeding (or not). Perhaps, a place where professionals can share relevant resources, and read about people’s personal experiences and responses.

We don’t have to agree to discuss; we definitely don’t need to agree in order to support each other as we muddle or strategically walk through the murky or clear waters of infant feeding.

  8. Mothers have to understand how much milk babies actually drink. If someone has some other breastfeeding tips then do share their feedback.
