Welcome once again to the Carnival of Breastfeeding. This month's topic is breastfeeding problems and, as you would expect, all the posts deal with problems breastfeeding mothers have encountered and how they dealt with them! In addition they also look at the online support they found useful.
Look at this!!!! Quickly, look at this:
It's almost Carnival time again and this month the theme is Breastfeeding Problems.
We're looking for posts that illustrate the problems that can accompany breastfeeding - problems such as thrush, blocked ducts, engorgement, leaking, sore/ cracked nipples, mastitis, abscess, low supply, nipple confusion, oversupply and all the rest!
Male Pregnancy? Surely not!
Fancy a free copy of BMums Pregnancy Relaxation mp3 in return for a written review?
For as long as I can remember I've been fascinated by words. As a child I recall "reading" my dictionary, a present from Santa Claus - Chambers Childrens' Illustrated Dictionary! I read it because I loved learning new words. Of course, at the age of seven I had no idea that what I was actually doing was improving my vocabulary!
When I was pregnant one of the very first things I couldn't drink anymore was coffee. It tasted strange and made me ill (see my article Pregnancy and Morning Sickness for tips on how to cope!) and I simply saw it as nature's way of saying it wasn't good for me in early pregnancy. In the middle and later stages I was able to drink it again and drank decaff just to be on the safe side.
