Baby talk: More food for thought about breastfeeding

Before World Breastfeeding Week comes to a close, here's some additional food for thought:

  1. Have you ever tried to make your kids eat under a blanket? Relatedly, "Why can't you just nurse with a cover?"
  2. Design Mom's latest "Growing a Family" post was about breastfeeding and one mom's decision to switch to formula after two frustrating months. (I love this series, BTW.)
  3. Celebrity breastfeeding roundup: 
    1. Gorgeous woman breastfeeds; all other moms be like, "STAHP. I'm wearing stained yoga pants." (But kudos on the breastfeeding!)
    2. Blossom, aka Mayim Bialik, is a certified lactation consultant
    3. Not ironic: Alanis supports breastfeeding and is adorable. 
In case you want actual, helpful information on breastfeeding, we recommend visiting La Leche League or A friend also suggested the book Breastfeeding Made Simple when I was pregnant, in case you want to dive into the topic in print.
