I'd like bothI agree with Ellie'smom. I think that extended bf'ing needs its own forum, separate from general bf'ing. Perhaps a subforum under the new breastfeeding forum?
But as a bigtime clw'er, I also agree that we have very different issues than other "extended" moms. I like having a place where we can talk safely about this; I'm so in the closet about the REALITY of my bf'ing experience at LLL meetings, for example (can't scare off the "short-termers") (and I mean that sincerely, since I DO believe that EVERY feeding counts, and it's a victory to get some moms to nurse to 6 mos.).
anyway, I continue to be confused by people who DON'T do something thinking that those of us who do having a forum to discuss it implies a judgment of them...I have learned to keep my mouth shut so many places on these boards that, oh well, I've been around since the old old boards and I STILL don't have 1000 posts...
Thanks Cynthia, for this forum.
