Hi mamas! I wanted to share the news that there is a new breastfeeding organization that will begin opening mother to mother meetings in 2011.   If you're interested in learning more, you can go to the Breastfeeding USA website here: http://www.breastfeedingusa.org   Breastfeeding USA is also on Facebook and Twitter. You can follow there for ongoing updates.
The latest word is that the Medical Association of Alabama is fighting hard. It's important that our senators hear from us TODAY. Please call in and support this bill.

He was never on the GI tube that went directly to the stomach. I never protested formula because I had low supply and always did, despite doing everything...

I'm not talking about micro preemies, but babies that are over 5lbs and close to full term.
