I would love to talk with other lactivists(or breastfeeding activists) about ways that they are working in their communities to promote breastfeeding. If you go to the AAP website they will send you up to 6 free posters that say "breastfeeding moms welcome here" and show a mother nursing her baby. I'm not sure of the exact link, you have to search around the site a bit.
I am a Breastfeeding counselor and a doula aspiring midwife and English professor... Yes, I can't decide what I want to be when I "grow up" if I grow up, ever. I am trying to balance college and four kids, and housework and their activities and all that while helping my community see that breastfeeding is the way to go.
So I guess it's understansable that I am half-exhausted, anemic and using coffee as a lifeline. I have to start taking better care of myself and really focusing on one following through with my goals.
Which obviously my top priority is: my kids
but I don't see why I can't "have it all" and that is what I am trying to do, so why not? right?
Today I will be cleaning my room, working on my book and taking my kids to the park and counseling breatfeeding moms through WIC. What more could a mama ask for?
