Hi,


Just wanted to share a little from the LLL conference I went to Friday and Saturday.  It was so great!  James McKenna spoke during lunch.  He talked about how the Western idea of babies eating and sleeping is so different from the rest of the world.  He is such a wonderful advocate for bf and co-sleeping. 


I also attended seminars on toddler nursing and beyond, chiropractic care to aid bf and ear i nfections, coping with criticism of parenting choices, and breastfeeding basics.  I wish you guys could have been there.  They also had a bookstore, silent auction, and many vendors.  Of course the best part was bing with so many moms and babies nursing and being nurtured.  It was so great to spend a day with some many like-mined people who really "get it".  So great!


I am almost through my LLL leader process.  I will let you all know.  One of the first things I want to do is start a toddler meeting/playgroup in my area.

Melanie, do you happen to know Spencer (gepenst)? She's here sometimes, is CL of W&P and a regular on Breast vs Formula debate. I believe she was going as well. She is nursing a toddler as well and is a physician.


Glad you enjoyed it!!
