Just a notice about this post – women like to share and this breastfeeding topic may be too much for some.  Refer it along if you find value in it.

I can remember my first attempts at nursing my first baby with great fondness.  It was in the hospital with lots of support and other moms to model after.  Then I got home….

Breastfeeding is a skill for moms while baby seems to have great instincts about how to nurse.  There is so much advice out there I can’t even start to get into who’s opinion rules.  Your own opinion counts most really!

I found fantastic support with La Leche League with my first daughter who forgot how to nurse after leaving the hospital and again for my second daughter who didn’t keep up with demand when my milk came in with her.  Both consultations were over the phone and helped tremendously – as did my girlfriends who backed her up!

Using a breast pump to extract milk helped me to ease the too full feeling in my breasts as many other women do.  I provided milk extracted by a pump for mixing with infant cereal and for my husband to give to my daughter when I went out in the evening (although that didn’t really work, she gave up evening nursing first).  It was the best help when engorged and even the comfort of cold cabbage leaves started to fail me.

Changing Ways will be introducing a breastpump from Ameda.  This manufacturer offers many resources for women who breastfeed.  This company does encourage and advocate for those who are breastfeeding as I investigated their reviews and website.  This was an important qualifier for me as I really support those who will try to nurse, just like those who try to cloth diaper.

A mom needs support during the learning stages of caring for a newborn so here’s hoping Changing Ways can lend an extra hand here!  The breast pump sold through Ameda has support from World Health Organization which is unique in this market.  Contact Andria to find out more!

The envelope please…..  Ta Da!  Click above to see the videos for who the nominees and the winners are for the 2011 Cloth Diaper Awards!

When you seek to find out who is the best in cloth diaper land – you run into a lot of research and a lot of opinions.  The process of finding a cloth diaper system which works for you and your baby is unique. Right from HOW you acquire diapers to HOW much you enjoy/hate using them!

See what is available to you, what you like, and what works:

  • a friends passes on a basket of her old cloth diapers with prefolds plus covers
  • you score a wetbag full of one size diapers at a garage sale
  • an ad on kijiji nets you nearly new cloth diapers in the brand you were looking to buy new!
  • baby showers and like minded friends team up to gift you a cloth diaper stash which makes you blush!
  • after trying out pocket diapers, you become a cloth diaper guru and switch to flat diapers and hand washing
  • your husband will only use the diapers which are easy – where you have prepped all the pockets and snapped all the correct snaps so he can’t miss out on a diaper change with baby

Awards for the cloth diaper industry are a fabulous showcase!  Consider the nominees as well as the winners had great support from the fans who are parents and caregivers actually using the products they voted for!

Who does your cloth diaper award go to?  I think you should take a bow too – you tried cloth as an alternative to disposable.  Way to go!
