My Breastfeeding Goals for 2009

In some ways it seems a little strange perhaps for me to have any breastfeeding goals since I'm no longer breastfeeding any of my children. However, since I'm very keen to keep spreading the message in whatever way I can that breast is best I do indeed have at least one breastfeeding goal for the coming year - to publish my breastfeeding book!

Guest Post: Why Breastfeeding is So Hard For Some Moms, by Carrie Lauth

Carrie at NaturalMomsTalkRadio recently submitted this guest post for readers of my blog:

Sweet Nursing: Pregnancy/ Breastfeeding Poncho

Hide'n'See-black-poncho Hide'n'See-white-poncho A few weeks back I mentioned I would be reviewing a Hide 'n' See Nursing/Pregnancy Poncho from Sweet Nursing.

Well, I'm finally getting around to it after the very busy Christmas and New Year period during which I was dying from the lovely flu doing the rounds at the moment.

Sweet Nursing design and supply a unique range of breastfeeding, nursery and baby products and the ponchos are pretty new to the range but oh boy, are they good! I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of them and I can tell you now that even though I am neither pregnant nor breastfeeding it is fashionable enough that any woman of any age would be thrilled to have one in her wardrobe!!

Made from premium soft organic cotton, the poncho is extremely warm in the present cold weather we're getting here in Ireland at the moment. And, since one of the qualities of cotton is that it is cool in the summer months it would also make a great summer time accessory too.
