I’m celebrating World Breastfeeding Week with Natural Parents Network!

I’ve got a couple of breastfeeding posts scheduled for this week, both are about Breastfeeding During Pregnancy – Common Discomforts and How to Help.

You can celebrate with us, too — link up your breastfeeding posts from August 1-7 in the linky below, and enjoy reading, commenting on, and sharing the posts collected here and on Natural Parents Network.1

wbw-logo-wWorld Breastfeeding Week promotes breastfeeding awareness and education. The theme for 2011 is Breastfeeding: A 3D Experience.


From the official site:

When we look at breastfeeding support, we tend to see it in two-dimensions: time (from pre-pregnancy to weaning) and place (the home, community, health care system, etc). But neither has much impact without a THIRD dimension — communication!

Let’s help communicate about breastfeeding for this year’s WBW! Link up your breastfeeding posts below, and visit NPN to grab the code for your own blog. It will update automatically as posts are added!

(Visit NPN for the code to place on your blog.)

  1. Hi Dionna!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting that I’m still breastfeeding, milk or not. Oh wow, I never thought of that before! Thanks for the reassurance and encouragement! Let’s hope we ride through this smoothly!

    Dionna, I am looking forward to reading your posts. Visiting your blog always makes me feel wonderful because I come from a family that believes in breastfeeding past infancy. We’re grateful that we are healthy and the privilege to breastfeed, as well as be breastfed.

    Whenever I feel a little dragged down with stress, all I have to do is remember my son as a baby gazing into my eyes as I held him close. It instantly lifts my mood. Although people laughed at me, I nursed him until he decided to wean off when he was three. I enjoy the benefit of a loving and affectionate child.

    God bless you.
