Am I just missing them? I don't see them on the message board lists. Anyone else notice? Did they get combined with another board - or just deleted? I feel kind of sad about that...

It was my always impression that the regular BF support board was intended to be for mom-to-mom support while the BF/LC board focused more on LC based support. The problem was that the regular board had very little traffic and many people just sought out mom-to-mom support on the BF/LC board anyways so I think it made sense to just have one board as they do now.

It makes sense to me too Emily, I would have done the same.

FWIW, back when I posted a lot, I used to post to the regular bf board if I wanted mommy input, and tried to save a post to bf/lc for things that were more technical and warranted a look by an lc. So, for example, if I wondered about twiddling the other nipple, I'd ask on the regular board. If I had a question about weight gain, I'd ask the lc board. It all made sense in my head. : )

No, not particularly busy, and sponsored by Enfamil. I see mostly BFing posts though, and couple of our regulars, HollyElizabeth2007 and Gespenst are doing their part! :)

I wonder if that board is more busy? I will go have a peek...

I wasn't aware of that history - so maybe it was a good thing!

I never understood why they kept two separate bf support boards as long as they did actually. It was back from when one was ParentsPlace and one was ParentSoup and they just kept both going. It was confusing for people many times, so I'm actually glad we consolidated.

There was a separate bf board but it shut down a while ago, I think last year.
