PUBLIC/OUTDOOR NURSING IN THE WINTER
violetandme: The obvious solution would be to go indoors but if I can’t — Or if I have heavy layers on — I doubt that I’ll be nursing in a blizzard!!! What to do when baby wants food? I wear low cut (modestly) shirts so that my boobs are easily accessible. What kind of clothes are breast feeding appropriate in the winter months?

A mother who was insulted by complaints about breastfeeding in public called La Leche...

nathan-persuasion: Marriage. “When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words,...

5 stupid reasons to stop breastfeeding →
littlemissmomma: This made me smile! <Me too!
Just a thought..
littlemissmomma: Do you know what really gets under my skin? How it is totally acceptable to smoke cigarettes in public and subject others to the harmful chemicals, not to mention awful smell, but breastfeeding is not accepted. I don’t want to pop a boob out in the middle of a crowded space or anything, but it would be nice not to be stared at if you’re in your own car with a cover over you...

Breastfeeding Mums Need To Talk! →
mothertobe: Breastfeeding can be an isolating experience. A new mum, breastfeeding for the first time, can feel cut off from family and friends if they are unsupportive or simply do not understand her motives. All too often it is assumed that a breastfeeding mum will scurry off to do the deed behind a locked door and well out of sight. And God forbid she utters the phrase, “I’m...
