Just about anybody that knows I have kids knows I breastfed each of them. Brandon nursed for four months exclusively, then was supplemented until his 9th month. Sarah nursed for 13 months and never had formula, and Bethy nursed for 15 months with no formula. Yes, I'm a lactivist that believes in long-term nursing.
I also believe in doing what is best for your baby, you, and your family. And that might not be the same thing for every situation.
That said, breastfeeding can be extremely confusing. And while it's completely natural, it's not always easy.
Thankfully, there's a party going on in Twitterville tomorrow night that just may help in your breastfeeding quest. Moms and Dads alike will benefit from this, so make plans for a Friday night party that your baby will eat up! (Sorry, couldn't help it.)

Friday, 19 February - 9-10 pm EST"]
Please join us this Friday as we throw a Twitter Party Sitewarming for Bravado Designs, the brand synonymous with nursing women and their success for eighteen years.
Eighteen years ago Bravado Designs was created by two nursing mothers who worked with the lactation community to take what began as the Original Nursing Bra to a full product line for breastfeeding moms. Bravado Designs combines and unparalleled knowledge of physiology with fashion forward products that meet the needs of the nursing mothers like no other brand. You've heard from all of your friends that Bravado is the nursing bra, but did you know that Bravado offers a full range of fashion products for the nursing mom taking care of the whole woman? Join us to learn more as we hold a Twitter party this Friday from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. EST.
Please join us as we discuss such important topics as:
- How long should a feeding take?
- What's a first generation breastfeeding mom to do?
- The roles dads play in successful breastfeeding
- How to position yourself comfortably during breastfeeding
We'll be sharing our own experiences while learning more from the Bravado Breastfeeding Information Council (BBIC) experts. No one knows as much about nursing women as Bravado.
We'll also have the opportunity to chat with Kathryn From, the current CEO of Bravado Designs. Please follow @BravadoDesigns to speak with Ms. From during the event.
