Breastfeeding Newsletter


October 6 2008 Breastfeeding Newsletter

Dear BellaOnline Breastfeeding Subscribers,

Sunday, October 5 was my one-year anniversary of public editorship of the BellaOnline Breastfeeding site (that is, posting my first article on the site). It's been an incredible honor this past year writing in service of other breastfeeding mothers, and I look forward to many more. Writing for you, and receiving your kind and supportive messages has made by own breastfeeding relationship even more unique and special by being able to really explore and share my experiences.

In celebration of my one-year anniversary, I took a look back at my past year of articles, and it is amazing to me that I ever worried about how I'd come up with a topic week after week...the subjects I've written on have been varied and sometimes unexpected, and I feel like I've hardly scratched the surface!

I'd love to hear from you what some of your favorite articles have been, as well as what articles you still want to see on the site -- what would be most helpful to you? Please feel free to write to me directly by replying to this message, or post your thoughts or questions in the breastfeeding forum (

To look back... here's a listing of the full set of articles from the past year - if you've subscribed during that time, you may have missed some. Or perhaps you know of someone who could benefit from a topic -- feel free to pass it along. I hope to get to know more of you through the Breastfeeding Forum - I check it nearly everyday, and that is often the best place to post a comment or question so that you can benefit from the wisdom and experience of lots of breastfeeding mamas!
