Welcome to Breastfeeding and I Linky 13! It’s opened until Wednesday midnight. I continue to juggle and find my feet again.

Thanks to @juliecookies for linking up her thoughts about breastfeeding bullies / bressure vs lactivisits last week. It definitely got me thinking and sharing; and it resulted in a very interesting discussion on one of my online breastfeeding groups … thanks Julie 🙂

Welcome to Breastfeeding and I linky 12! I am so sorry that I’ve been AWOL. Life has been full of more waves than usual in recent months, and blogging was touched in a way that wasn’t expected.

So much has happened in the last month on the breastfeeding front; I’ll be sharing more next week. I’m really late with this one, but I thought better late than allow another week to pass again without it.

Thanks to @juliecookies for linking up a superb infographic the other week; helpful breast milk storage information.

Welcome to the 11th Breastfeeding and I blog link party! It’s definitely count down to the end of the school holidays now. 🙁

Yah, it’s still National Breastfeeding Month in the US; I just like the idea of celebrating motherhood and this an aspect of it that I really enjoy.

Thanks to the lovely folks that linked up last week; good reads as usual, and inspired by the recent focus of breastfeeding in the news.

Featured Post

@allpastmidnight passionately, critically, and insightful responded to Alex Dyke’s comments about breastfeeding. She made a strong case for why they are less about breastfeeding and more about his misogynistic view of women; ONE TO READ!

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.

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.

Welcome to the 8th Breastfeeding and I blog link party!

Thanks to the lovely folks that linked up last week; good reads as usual.

Featured Post

@juliecookies’s fab workplace provision to support breastfeeding employees is fantastic. This has supported her in maintaining her breastfeeding relationship with her little one. Fancy lactation rooms with hospital grade breast pumps, a fridge, free bottle water, and storage cabinet.

This is the sort of experience World Breastfeeding Week wants more women to have in their workplace. This year’s theme is about breastfeeding and work (in its broadest sense), to promote policies and practices on local, regional, and national levels, that make workplaces more conducive to breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding and I Linky 7

Welcome to the 7th #BreastfeedingandI blog link party!

Thanks to the lovely folks that linked up last week; lots of good reads as usual. If you didn’t get around to checking out my National Breastfeeding Week round up last week, it’s worth having a look.

Featured Post

I’m so glad that @hdydi‘s shared Raquel’s hospital pumping experience when she had her twins before they were 32 weeks. You should see her stash of frozen milk after 15 days! Her TOP TIPS on how to increase breast milk supply are REALLY TOPS and she shared an excellent link within her post too. This is definitely one to read; so informative, encouraging, and inspiring!

As someone who pumped for months to boost her supply, and help save her breastfeeding relationship, I wish I read her post before I had my baby.

Her summary is so important to keep in mind: “Your personal medical situation and many other things YOU CANNOT CONTROL will impact your ability to produce milk. Childbirth is a traumatic experience for your body. A C-section is major surgery. If you can make breastfeeding work, that’s great. If you can’t, that doesn’t make you any less of a mother.” ~ emphasis are mine.
