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, 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.

  3. I'm with you, Hyacynth - and posted a comment, as well :) Congrats on the lovely article, and keep your chin up. Interesting comment discussion!

  4. I loved your article, and I also posted a comment. I think your last line here sums things up...can't we all just get along? Uggghh, I could go on and on, but I'll just be nice.

  5. Hyacynth I am not in the Chicago area, but I will check out the website. Thank you very much.

  6. Thanks, @Michelle and @MegRyansMom, which by the way is such a fun screen name. :)

    Let me know if I can help in anyway, @Lorraine Renee'


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.
