- We aren’t even discussing night weaning yet, but when we do, I’m all over this book!
- A news break in research linking autism and vaccines. It’s important to remember there is alot of money being exchanged in the world of vaccine production and advertisement. I hate to be blunt, but do your research before you stick your kid with something that is “safe”.
- This blog has been fantastic in our journey of baby-led weaning.
- If 7% of the world’s Christians adopted 1 child there would be no orphans. This statistic has seriously led Dominic and I to consider how we can be a part of a solution. Whether it be through prayer, financial support or adopting a child into our family we plan be a part of the change in reducing the world’s orphans.
- As hard as it is to let go, I hope to prepare Jemma to fly away successfully someday.
- When are we going to see more breastfeeding education in the mainstream media? This article asks some great questions in light of the recent coverage of donor milk. I couldn’t say it better than this:We need better health care for breastfeeding mothers, from prenatal care to baby-friendly hospitals to insured post-natal visits by an IBCLC. We need less social stigma against the baby on the boob, in public, so moms donâ€™t feel ostracized and embarrassedâ€“no mother can put her busy, multi-tasking life on hold for months or years so she can always meet the approval of the squeamish by breastfeeding in private. We need a paid maternity leave policy, which, unlike donor milk, probably no pump company will advocate for, because it would hurt their sales . . . but it is in the best interest of our mothers, our families, our employers, our insurance companies, and our global competitiveness.
- And, as we prepare for Mother’s Day this weekend … consider spending $10 on a gift that will make an impact. Flowers and jewelry won’t change the world, but $10 could protect 5 mamas and babies in Papua New Guinea.
