Chicago Mom Blog: Breastfeeding: Formula-Fed America

I'm writing for Chicago Moms Blog today about breastfeeding in Formula-Fed America.
And, yes, I do realize I've opened a can of breastfeeding [or formula-feeding] worms. I hope we can still be friends even if we do not agree. :)

  1. just wondering if it is possible to start breastfeeding again after your milk has "dried up". I breast fed for 5 months and stopped for numerous reasons. But if I chose to start again is it possible?

  2. Lorraine, it is possible to begin relactating. If you are in the Chicago area, I know a great lactation consultant who could help you out. If not, this page http://www.breastfeedingbasics.com/html/Relactation.shtml, has information about how you can get in touch with a certified lactation consultant.
    I sincerely wish you the best in whatever decision you make, whatever the outcome. Big hugs to you, mama, because these parenting decisions are not easy.

There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
