Award? ME?!?!!<br><br>
So, I talked to the Peer Breastfeeding Counselor today, I apparently won the Craighead county breastfeeding mother award for 2007!<br><br>
How cool is that! They took my picture and it will hang in the WIC office and be put in some other stuff with info about me. I feel great!<br><br>
Yeah, it only a county award... but its totally cool to get ANY award!<br><br>
Oh, and all I did:<br><br>
EBF<br>
Start a BF support group (only one person has come thus far)<br>
Help at the WIC breastfeeding classes for mamas to be

That's "all" you did? Sounds like you really made a difference in the lives of some lucky mamas and lucky babies. Good for you!

Well, its not 'all' as in 'I don't give a crap', just as in it wasn't a big hassle and I enjoy it!<br><br><br>
Its so strange, I went to DH's workplace and practically yelled it. Everyone giggled and congratulated me, I'm known as the breastfeeding lady 'round these parts.

Yes, I moved her with DP from Fayetteville in the spring of '06. Its a strange transition because F-ville is filled with baby wearers and breastfeeders .I have really only met about four other breastfeeding mamas, but they were all really cool. The WIC office here is great, the peer breastfeeding counselor holds a Bf class every other Monday for soon to be moms, and I think that she has helped quite a few women go from being on the fence to being excited about breastfeeding their babies.<br><br>
Where did you move to?

I'm from the Little Rock area, so I moved back here after graduation. However, dh just took a job in Mtn. Home so I'm headed back north as soon as the school year is over (I'm a teacher).<br><br>
I looooove Fayetteville! My MIL lives in Siloam Springs so we are up in that area about once every other month or so. That whole region just feels crunchy to me, if that makes sense. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
That is great to hear about Jonesboro being so BF friendly! I didn't love the area, but that had more to do with the traffic than anything else. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
