7 Quick Takes- Online Breastfeeding Resources
It's World Breastfeeding Week..yeah, yeah. HB has finally gotten to normal. He had a fever Wednesday, but he finally ate something more substantial (than two crackers all day) for dinner so I believe that he will recover.
I decided instead of the usual to post a few good online resources for breastfeeding moms/dads/babies. I purposely avoided the ILLL and Kelly Mom. But not because they aren't fantastic (they totally are) but because I think the less well known podcasters, bloggers, and forums also deserve a chance for breastfeeding moms to learn about and congregate at. So without much further ado...7 Breastfeeding Places Online
1) The Boob Group- Great online radio series that has podcasts weekly from a variety of experts and includes ordinary women too. They cover topics from Tips for Working Moms to Craniosacral therapy. You can get the app for your iPad or your Kindle Fire or any other Android device. I have this on my Kindle Fire and I love it.
2) The Leaky Boob- Part online resource, part online forum, part blog The Leaky Boob was started by a mom over her frustrating breastfeeding issues and blossomed.
3) Cafe Mom's Breastfeeding Moms Group- This is an online forum where women can get together and ask any questions to any other mom.
4) Breastfeeding Inc- This is a breastfeeding resource page put out by two pediatricians. It's Canadian, but don't let that stop you from checking it out, eh?
5) Mothering Magazine's Breastfeeding Forum- Even though the magazine has had to switch to being completely online, that doesn't mean they still aren't a strong champion for breastfeeding. Check out the forum along with the magazine. They cover such specific topics as extended nursing.
6) Breastfeeding Blog Hop- This is a weekly breastfeeding blog hop where a variety of bloggers cover the same breastfeeding topic from several angles. Your more than welcome to add your link. Sisters N Cloth hosts it.
7) Blacktating- This is also a blog which talks about breastfeeding from a "woman of color['s]" point of view.
