The Breastfeeding Cover-Up

This is not a post about nursing covers. This is a post about breastfeeding support. It is about those who consider themselves breastfeeding supporters, what a breastfeeding mother considers supportive and the often huge disparity between the two. I married into this company (my husband and his sister started Momzelle together, just as he and … Continue reading “The Breastfeeding Cover-Up”

My Breastfeeding Journey: Getting comfortable

My first child will be four weeks old this week.  It sure is going fast (except the nights, funny how that works).  We have conquered the cracked nipples and improper latch, my next challenge was getting comfortable.

Promoting Breastfeeding: then and now

I love this one.  It’s part of a series from Canada published in the 1990’s.   The small print says “you’ve got what it takes to make a healthy baby and it doesn’t cost a … Continue reading “Promoting Breastfeeding: then and now”

I am truly excited for … Continue reading “Breastfeeding is normal!”
