The Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival starts two weeks from today! Are you so excited?! I am! So mark your calendars and participate in as many topics as you can!

We’ve already had a few volunteers for guest posting on this blog (thanks ladies!) and I would love it if we can get the spots filled by the time the Carnival opens. It would certainly take a lot of stress off my very-pregnant plate! So please email me ASAP at clindstrom2 {at} gmail {dot} com if you’d like to reserve your topic. Also email me if you’re not on the mailing list yet so you can get notifications/reminders about the Carnival.

Friday, July 18th – What are your breastfeeding goals? Do you want to nurse for at least 6 months? A year? As long as your child wants? Why is this your goal?

Saturday, July 19th – What’s your breastfed story? Tell us your story of if/how you were nursed and how you feel that’s effected your breastfeeding goals now.

Sunday, July 20th – Who has helped you to reach your breastfeeding goals? A supportive partner, helpful friend, organization, etc.? How did they help you?

Tuesday, July 22nd – What has helped you reach your breastfeeding goals? Is there a particular product out there that helped you to breastfeed? Maybe an SNS system that kept your baby at the breast or a pillow that helped you through those late nights. Tell us your must have!
