Story of the Week
Do you have a story to tell about how you made your choice to feed your baby? Another mom who supported you? A sister who filled you in on the age-old remedy of ace bandages to ease aching breasts? Maybe you remember how you handled the disapproving look or comment from someone who didn't like your choice. Or you found a particular article or Website helpful. Who or what encouraged you? How about when you went back to work? How was your decision impacted then? Did your baby have an allergy or some other special nutritional need?
We can all learn from and support each other. The following stories have been shared by moms who have generously agreed to tell us about their experiences. If you'd like to share your story, simply click on the "Tell Us Your Story" button below.
In addition to the stories you find on this blog, click the publications (pdf) to the right to read more stories about moms relaying the real life twists and turns -- those most often beyond their control -- that impact their everyday efforts to give their children the very best that they can. Doing the best for their children is the ultimate goal of all parents, and all mothers deserve to be supported and encouraged, regardless of the manner in which they strive to achieve it.
