Default National Breastfeeding Week

Activities will be going on all week folks!

A local event is going on right now in my neck (or should I say cleavage) of the woods

The title should be Worldwide Breastfeeding Week.

Grow up you big idiots. You were obviously not breastfed long enough or at all as a baby.

National breastfeeding week is a big deal, it get the word out to a lot of Moms that they can get free help and assistance with any breastfeeding problems.
I used to participate in the walks and projects that our Local La Leche League had going on. I even used to be a local leader.

My oldest daughter has breastfeed all three of her children until the age of 18 months. Until today, I've never heard of National Breastfeeding Week nor has she. Why does it need a national campaign week? Isn't this something between doctor and patient? or Pedi and patient?

When you are pregnant breastfeeding is rammed down your throat, but no-one ever talks about the fact that some babies just won't breastfeed. This leaves some Mums feeling totally inadequate and dreading feeding times which can lead to depression.

I agree breastfeeding has huge benefits for babies and Mums, but some information needs to be included for when it's just not possible.

I think it's not a bad idea to let people see it's a normal thing and not hidden or shameful.

La Leche League and NCT do help women who want to breastfeed but may be having difficulties.

My wife had terrible trouble until she joined a breastfeeding club, then it was much better for her. Plus she managed to make lots of friends who could help with all kinds of other baby-related issues and cheered her up no end.

Thats how it started for me too, she's being drawn to the dark side, she'll be a leader in no time LOL. I still have friends I made from those meetings 22 years ago.

I wish I had a group close to me in the 80s when I had my kids. However, I managed on my own with the help of a great doctor and my mother-in-law. My family were shocked that I would do something so "animalistic." After educating them (esp. my dad) and continually talking about how healthy my kids were compared to my friends' and in-laws they came around.

I think it's a touch too much. However, my daughter played "breastfeeding her baby" when she was little.....she didn't need an $89 doll though. Her water baby was just fine.
