    Breastfeeding in Mongolia - a whole different cultural attitude.

    Brilliant!! Oh, goodness I'd love to see all the moms at my local LLL meeting wave their boobs around when our kids bicker!

    This was a great read - so interesting to read about a culture where breastfeeding is the norm. Not sure I'd make it to 9 with my daughter though, lol

    I fed my first son for a long time, so I think I may have been Mongolian in a previous life

    GREAT article! I love this: "There, babies are kept constantly swaddled in layers of thick blankets, tied up with string like packages you don't want to come apart in the mail. When a package murmurs, a nipple is popped in its mouth." And this: "From the time Calum was four months old until he was three years old, wherever I went, I heard the same thing over and over again: "Breastfeeding is the best thing for your baby, the best thing for you." The constant approval made me feel that I was doing something important that mattered to everyone - exactly the kind of public applause every new mother needs." How nice it would be to feel that, rather than bucking societal norms, you are doing something that is rightly celebrated! And, of course, the grandpa with breast envy!

    Thanks for posting.
