I agree, I don't like the name either. The word crone has taken on a negative conotation in our culture. Maybe something with the words Wise Woman in it. Hmmmm..

I strongly recommend contacting an LLL Leader to speak with over the phone. She may come out to your house, or you could go to a meeting so she can evaluate the latch. A combination of pain and slow...

I'm glad you asked, because I have the exact same question! I'm expecting my third boy, and would like a name that is strong, and connected with nature. It also can't be too "out there" because my...

I just wanted to add, it is not unusual for a newborn to want to nurse for 40 minutes or more at a time. Probably totally different than bottle feeding. So if possible, nurse until the baby tells...

I don't see any reason to! Why risk it? Especially at the beginning when he/she is learning how to latch and nurse. Neither of my boys ever took a bottle (they refused!). I prefer it that way. I...
