My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Money Is Mothers Milk in Politics

"Money Is Mothers Milk in Politics"

I heard a reporter say this while they were airing Obama's Victory party at the stadium after they announced the win. It had me thinking all day what the reporter meant by it... Hmmm...

  • The reporter values Mother's Milk (yes! but did anyone else--anyone else at all-- besides me hear him say this? I wish.)
  • The reporter must agree that babies thrive on Mother's Milk
  • Money in politics is compared to the nourishing qualities of Mother's Milk
  • Thus, in politics if you have the benefit of the most money you get the victory

I'm not sure if I got his intent correct, but I couldn't believe I heard this analogy. I hope lots of people heard how important breastmilk is.

Thoughts anyone?

Yep I bet that's what he meant! Mother's Milk is essential! Just as Money is in Politics. (These days anyway;)

I just saw this post: http://women.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/women/celebrity/article5057397.ece. Why is Salma equating breastfeeding with being an alcoholic? Is it because she's "drinking Guinness to boost her breast milk at the moment". Geez!
