Re: Last day
mama, i'm really glad you got the mental "exit hatch" you needed.
i hear what you're saying about LLL. it's tough, because as susan says, LLL's only goal is breastfeeding support. but a lot of that support is providing information about how the biological process of nursing works, and it's true that demand feeding in the early months is what sets up your supply for the long term. of course you don't have to do demand feeding, but it's much more likely that you'll then run into supply problems down the line. i hate that our culture is so breastfeeding averse and ignorant that just laying this information out there becomes (as you say, truly) overwhelming.
Nursing, pumping, cloth-diapering, babywearing, working professor mama with the awesomest SAHD ever.
