Blood, Sweat, and Tears

"Writing styles are not easy to come by, they are forged by fire, they are cooled by the tears of ones own eyes, and they are oiled by the authors own blood; sheathing that style is an entirely new level of pain." - Shy willow

National Breastfeeding Month


I thought it only fitting to celebrate National Breastfeeding Month by reading Le Leche League International’s gem The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. The copy of the book that I had was the edition printed in 1997, which has since been revised several times. Beings I have started a new adventure with LLLI, I opted to purchase the newest 8th version.  Having reading the earlier edition I was not really expecting to read anything too different. I am pleased to say I was wrong. The newest edition is like reading a completely different book. I am going to save the rest for “What’s Jenn Reading.”

The information available on the benefits of nursing your child over a bottle continues to mount each year. So in this theme I thought I would add a few links which I have found interesting that have been passed to me for review. I mean not to offend anyone who bottle fed their precious baby, but rather to encourage those who are seeking a successful breastfeeding relationship.
