I’m sad to say my time on the message board is coming to an end tonight.

I’ve been working on this board since 1999 and want all of you to know how much I’ll miss you and how much you have meant to me.

Working here has taught me so much. It’s been great to learn first-hand what questions are most important to breastfeeding mothers and what they are really feeling inside their hearts about their experiences. It’s also been a valuable learning process for me to get “instant” feedback on my responses.

You have been with me through the happiest journey of my life when I became ‘grammy’, and you supported me through the saddest moments of my life when I lost my precious grandbabies Elias, Elianna, and Maura. You should be proud to be a part of such a loving and giving group of women.

I have been privileged to be in contact with women from every continent in the world except Antarctica through my work on the message board. I have always been impressed with the resourcefulness of the women I have met here.

I have made life-long friends and have many happy memories.

You have given me so much and I will treasure my years working on the lactation consultant message board.

I'll likely come back just to check on updates or follow up questions for anyone I'm currently communicating with but this will be my last "official' post.

Warmly and God Bless,

Kathy Kuhn IBCLC

iVillage lactation consultant

and Grammy to Brennan, Elias, Elianna, Tahlia, Makenna, Maura, Silas, Charlotte, and new Kuhn (baby #3 of Dan and Sara) coming July 2013

Kathy, I'm so sad as well that this day has finally arrived. As you know, I've been so inspired and educated by you in the nine years I've been on this board. So much of what I've learned so far and what I will continue to learn on this journey is due to you, your wisdom and great attitude. I hope I can be as quarter of a good LC as you are someday!! Keep in touch!

OMG, I just came back to the board as a sort of nostalgia kick to see that Kathy is leaving and Dana, you are still here!!! I have been helping some moms on a Facebook group for moms in Trinidad and I remember how much support I got here. I owe my entire breastfeeding relationship with my daughter to this board and with Kathy leaving it is the end of an era. Goodbye Kathy, I wish you best of luck in your future endeavours.

Bridget, it's so nice to see you stop by!! Yep, I'm still here same as ever. Kevin is 11 1/2 and Jason is 8 1/2. I've been here since before I was pregnant with Jason so 9 years and change. I'm glad you're able to help some local moms in Trinidad. I'm so thrilled you posted a pic of Caitlyn. She sure is a cutie!!
