    The Affordable Care Act (aka: Obamacare) mandates that "A group health plan and a health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall, at a minimum, provide coverage for and shall not impose any cost sharing requirements for evidence-based items or services that...

    I have had two glasses of wine as I type this, and I am typing with one hand because I am breastfeeding my son. I believe very strongly that telling women that they can't drink while nursing is yet another way of undermining breastfeeding. When you breastfeed, apparently, you're supposed to sit...

    Q: I teach first grade, and the mother of a child in my class brings her 1-year-old son to school events-and breast-feeds in public without covering up sufficiently. Other parents have asked me to say something to her. Should I? -Name withheld, ­Scottsdale, Ariz. A: As moms everywhere know...

    I know this is going to upset a lot of people but I really wish the formula debate was not all black and white. I fully intended to have a natural home-birth with the skin to skin breast crawl and all, but fate was not in my favor. Due to complications I ended up with a C-section and it took...

    The Idaho Breastfeeding Law Coalition has had a lot of forward progress in the past few weeks as we continue in our endeavor to introduce a bill into the legislative session by 2013. Here are our most recent highlights -- We have submitted the bill to all Idaho state senators and...

    On celebrity baby blog, there's are two articles I like about Hilary Duff and Kelly ******* breastfeeding. Both are positive. They talk about their own experiences without saying anything about other moms. I think this is a great form of lactivism.

    I'm a typically laid back, non judgemental person. I don't get into politics, I don't get offended easily if ever, but I have one issue I do get very passionate about: breastfeeding. I get pissed when women get harassed for BF'ing in public, I get heated about people even suggesting NIP'ers...

    My friend's daughter just had her one year checkup. The pediatrician told my friend that she must stop breastfeeding because her daughter has teeth and could bite her and give her an infection, and also that she just didn't need it anymore. I happen to go to the same practice with a different...

    As many of your know, Public Citizen just started a petition to end formula samples in hospitals and it's the first time an advocacy group, outside of the breastfeeding community, has done so. Already nearly 12,000 have signed the petition and PC has a good track record (since 1971!) of doing...

    Maybe this should go in the more general BF forum. Mods, move if you think it should. I am a bfing mama to a 10 month old. I BF in public and I really don't give a **** what people think about that. I'll whip it out anywhere, because honestly, I think seeing a flash of my breast is a lot better...

    Except for the last paragraph, which I think is supposed to be the point, I don't like this article. http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/03/the-true-cost-of-breast-feeding-this-milk-isnt-free/?src=tp

    http://www.king5.com/news/local/Seattle-to-debate-breastfeeding-discrimination-law-146087725.html Seattle is considering a City Ordinance that will prohibit discrimination against breastfeeding mothers! I'm not nursing, nor do I live in Seattle (I used to), but people should go and support!

    I've been nursing for 13+ years, but I am writing a paper, it's actually an informative speech on Breast feeding, so I want my introduction to include something about the infant crawl that is known to happen when a newborn is placed on the mamas chest. If anyone can direct me toward a site that...

    http://moms.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/28/10520642-sweet-photo-of-dad-feeding-baby-turns-controversial Assuming this is true, I don't think LLL should have done this. I think it just widens the gap instead of closing it. The focus should be on educating and encouraging new moms to...

    I came across an article on "The Breastmilk Truck" today: http://www.embracethechaos.ca/2012/03/the-breast-milk-truck-arrives-breastfeeding-rights.html I'm generally in favour of raising awareness regarding breastfeeding in general, but I agree with the author and wonder if making a...

    I live in one of two (maybe three?) that has zero, zilch laws to protect women who nurse in public. I have two kids, both breastfed, and have only been overtly harassed once (by a restaurant server). Still, with my third on the way, I'm dreading the prospect of that happening again. If I'm...
