Personally, I don't care what label I wear - but I certainly identify more with CLW than I do with other philosophies, but the tone of you-can't-claim-CLW-status if you did this or that really turns me off to this board.

And expecting other mothers to do the same would be excluding a lot of mothers who can give and receive a great deal of much-needed support here.

I have also come for support and am afraid to post b/c my opinions may not be identical to others. I believe in CLW, my definition of it I guess, and want a place of encouragment and celebration for how long and how well we have nursed our older children. Few other places is there such a group of women...I am getting myself in trouble I think support should be first, not judgement.
