World Breastfeeding Week

Last year during World Breastfeeding Week, my baby and I started breastfeeding and I noted it here.

For World Breastfeeding Week this year, my baby and I have finished our first year of breastfeeding. She's still going strong and while giving me a little bite every once in awhile with her new teeth, I doubt she'll wean any time soon. It works for the both of us so I expect next year I'll be saying that we've completed our second year!

A whole lot is being written about World Breastfeeding Week. Here are a quick few of my favourite breastfeeding related posts (though they may not be strictly WBW posts) (of the few I've had time to read!):
  • Annie at PhD in Parenting outlined the original and some new reasons to boycott Nestle
  • Honest to Betsy wrote a lighthearted bit on four and a half years of breastfeeding and worked in the polar bears.
  • Elita at Blacktating asks where are the images of black women breastfeeding?
  • Melodie of Breastfeeding Moms Unite! has done a nice round of some other posts.
Any standout favourite posts on breastfeeding that you've read recently?

Thanks for the link CaroLyn. Just read your last post. Sorry to hear things are a bit crap. I'm having trouble settling into our new place here in Vic but it sounds like you are reading me so you probably know that. Anyway, we never get over to the mainland but if you ever catch the ferry to Sidney (yeah right) to go see family, let me know.
