Yet one more good reason to breastfeed

I can only try to imagine what my 3 year old would be like if I hadn't breastfed her. I shudder at the thought.
This fortunately was not the case for me. I gained more than 40 pounds with both of my pregnancies and my first was 8 lbs 0 oz and my son was 7 lbs 14 oz. Not exactly what I would consider huge.

Neat Story

Here's what happens when the lights go out.

New report on a LARGE baby born vaginally with no meds. I think this woman truly deserves a medal. It does show that the diagnosis cephalopelvic disproportion is overused.

Two great articles about childbirth and doulas

Here are links to two articles from usa today about the current state of maternity care and the benefits of doulas.


Alot of my friends and family here me saying that we don't buy Nestle products in our house. I then usually have to tell the story of why I choose to boycott Nestle. Here are a few links about the evil, underhanded stuff they do. They break rules and babies get sick and die.

Nestle is an extremely difficult company to boycott because they seem to have a hand in everything. I am in the process of compiling a list and will post it when I have a complete list. I am sure that even once I get the list up I will probably end up amending it many times. Feel free to join me in this boycott and speak up for all of the babies who can't.
