I live in Northfield, but my folks live in Princeton so we are up there several times a year. We also have a 3-year-old DD and would like to try again for a baby soon. I love the idea of a home birth before we're all done! Where do you live exactly?

Oh, that's easy! My mom actually does a lot of teacher subbing at ERHS.
We won't be passing through for Easter, but maybe we can meet at a coffee shop or something the next time I'm passing through.

Congrats on the new baby coming!

Hi I'm from St. Cloud which may be farther than you want to come, but would be happy to get together if you are ever up this way. Also, I know one of the moms currently comming to LLL meetings here is from Princeton and also looking for connections. If you pm me your e-mail address I could pass it on to her.

Hey there Fanatic- I don't get around to Mothering all that often, but Carla Hartley asked me if knew you, so I looked you up...
Anyway, I'm in Cambridge, I go to Princeton a lot, Elk River sometimes. Many of my old friends live in P-town. I actually lived in Elk River for the first three years I was married, we were in the ugly brown brick apartments behind Cub foods. Nice to "meet" you!

I am that Princeton person! I think we talked about getting together on here once before but I haven't been on in a while.

Anyway, I would love to meet up. Do you belong to the Y? We are always down there going to the Y. We could meet up there or hang out one day when we are down for that.

We're actually heading there around noon today. I will PM you my info so you can call me if you want to set up a day to meet.

If breastfeeding is so natural, why doesn't it seem to come naturally?

Sure, some moms do breastfeed and never experience any problems. But many of us need some help. In times gone by, before the 20th century, when every mother breastfed and families weren't so mobile, you'd turn to your mother, grandmother, or aunt for breastfeeding help. Unfortunately, today we've lost that breastfeeding community. That's where La Leche League steps in to fill the gap. If you're pregnant, try to think beyond the labor and birth of your baby, to the months of breastfeeding ahead of you. While you're pregnant is a good time to prepare, by going to several La Leche League meetings. It will help you build your support network.

La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed.
