hmmmmmm...

I would like a new name for this forum, too.

And a child-led weaning one would be fabulous.

I guess b/c the poll results show a majority desire to leave the name as it is, there has been no change ???

The poll shows that only 30% want the name to stay the same. 70% want a new name...that's why we're waiting for a response...and waiting...and waiting...:

The people who want a new name are in the majority (majority meaning more than 50%). The people who want to keep the old name are in the minority (less than 50%).

What do we want?

A NEW NAME!

When do we want it?

Well, as soon as it's convenient for you, mods.

Wait, I meant b/c the "I like the name as it is" answer had the most votes, and then votes for a new name were split between other choices. (Does that make sense? It's early yet). But, yes, it is obvious that the majority want SOME kind of new name.

Would a post in Questions and Suggestions (linking to here) be helpful?

NEW NAME! NEW NAME! NEW NAME!

hee!

I posted the idea in Questions and Suggestions way back in January:

For those of you who are interested in having an additional "Child-Led Weaning" forum/subforum, I just started a poll....
http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=140558

I'm not trying to take away from this thread, I just felt they were two separate topics that both needed addressing.

A new name would be great, and I would particularly like to see a forum for those of use who practice Child-Led Weaning. http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=140558

Well, this poll has been going for over a month now and there was a thread discussing the issue for at least a week or two before the poll started. So, what's going on? Are we going to be here next year still chanting?

Just my 2 cents

I voted "toddler, preschooler, and school-age breastfeeding". I like this primarily because it will be caught by search engines better.


I am such a geek sometimes. lol.

I like breastfeeding better than nursing for the same reason ( because "nursing" brings up a lot of medical sites)
