Breastfeeding Awareness Month!

For those of you who do not know, August is National Breastfeeding Awareness month in the USA. For more information about the Breastfeeding Campaign, please visit WomensHealth.gov.

I am a huge fan of the benefits, I would not let Oliver gnaw at me 6 times a day if I didn't. But, I also know how blessed I am that I have the ability to nurse my son.  And...well...my two cents, if you can nurse...  breastfeeding is huge, and it's worth a try.  It's not easy, but it gets easy. Even becoming automatic for both mom and child after a month or two.

I'm going to stop now, and not go to go into a big thing about breastfeeding. I have already done that a few times in the past.  If you want to know more information on my experiences with breastfeeding, the articles are located on the right column listing of this web page. Or just use my blog search tool in the top right corner.

Another reason I do not want to carry on about breastfeeding, again, is because of the numerous emails, comments and friends who have come to me in tears over their inability to breastfeed. I know this is a touchy subject, even hurtful. My heart goes out to the mothers who wish they could nurse, but are unable to for one reason or another.  No worries, your babies are big, beautiful, strong and healthy too!

I have been holding off on this post because I know how touchy this subject is for a few of you. However, this site would not be a good parenting resource if I did not at least say a little something...

Any who... WHOO HOOO it's National Breastfeeding Awareness month!

Furthermore, last week was actually "World Breastfeeding week." I just couldn't figure out how to write a post without offending, singling out and hurting some of you.  Then I started getting  emails, and text photos with the answer to my dilemma...I think I have found a way for ALL of us to get a little something from the cause. A bit of a laugh...

ENJOY!
