I think the push for more education and support is a good thing.

I wish they hadn't put the guilt-thing in the press release.

Welcome!

Thank you!
My motto has always been that I don't care how you feed your baby as long as you feed your baby. But as far as my own children, breastfeeding was just the natural decision/choice for us. I never considered otherwise.

Right now I'm gathering information to present in court to conitnue my daughter's right to breastfeed, so I'm full of breastfeeding information and websites! LOL

I think I have said this before on this board but have an issue with the motto " I don't care how you feed your baby as long as you feed your baby." because if taking literally then that would mean one is OK with feeding something other then BM or formula such chocolate milk, Kool-Aid, Cola, beer, etc. which i assume most people who use that motto don't really mean. I assume most people do care to some degree what others feed their baby if it's something other then BM or formula. I think

Ok, when you take it out of the context that I usually use that phrase in, it does sound funny. But when I typically say it, it is during a discussion between breastfeeding and formula feeding, so it is clear at the moment when it is used. And that is just semantics.... of course I wouldn't want someone feeding their baby beer and pork rinds! LOL

And yes, Charleen, it is a custody issue. Long story short.... ordered to start every other weekend visits but she is not ready to be weaned..... so I'm fighting for her. If I don't fight for her, no one else will.

Liz Baldwin did a lot of work on breastfeeding and custody issues before her untimely death. Here's a link to one of her articles.
