Hallo zusammen! I've just moved to Berlin with my family (partner and two kids aged 5 and 3). We're staying here temporarily until the end of July. We are having a hard time connecting with other families and children because most people seem to have their children in the KiTa from quite a young age, so we find the playgrounds to be quite empty during the day and aren't finding any playgroups for children over 24 months. My kids are lonely and looking to...
I would recommend checking out http://www.unerzogen.de/. Lots of great information and articles.

There are lots of other things that could be said about the...

Friends of ours lost a very young baby a few years ago. Baby was ill with a chest infection, dad took baby downstairs to give mum a break as she wasn't sleeping, he fell asleep...

It isn't the only way the baby could have died/suffocated, but it is the only way I could see that it could be connected to breastfeeding. The baby could have died of SIDS, a heart condition, or suffocation, but those have nothing to do with breastfeeding. Quote: Its a horrible tragic thing no...

We don't know if she was using a blanket. My point was simply that the only way it COULD be connected to breastfeeding in any way is if she was using a blanket to cover up because she was breastfeeding. Otherwise, if the baby suffocated on the mom's lap...
That's great! Cuba is a very breastfeeding friendly country. Lots of babyfriendly hospitals too.
There was a tragic incident where a baby was smothered on an airplane when the mom fell asleep. The media is placing the blame on the fact the mom was breastfeeding when she fell asleep. That is ridiculous to me. The only reason it would have anything to do with her breastfeeding, is if the airline told her to "cover up" and gave her one of those horrible blankets to cover up with. Breastfeeding doesn't suffocate babies. Blankets can suffocate babies. I wrote more...
I think it is too bad that it was cancelled, but I do think it is better that it was cancelled if there is no other way to fund it than with corporate sponsorships from companies like Nestle. IMO, lack of education is better than misinformation. Neither is great, but if I have to choose an evil...
I wrote and spread the word on twitter too!
