World Breastfeeding Week and National Nurse Out
I'm new to this group, and am the mother of a nursing toddler.  I know that this group is for Dad's, but I wanted to fill you guys in on a great opportunity to support your nursing wives.  :)

In conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week, ProMoM.Org is holding their National Nurse Out to encourage mother's to get out and nurse in public.  The stated purpose of this group is to find a way to support the process of breastfeeding and find your role.  This would be a great way to do that!  Have your wives check out Promom.org if they are interested, there are activities planned all over the county. 

If this is way out of line, just let me know and I'll remove the post.  Thanks!  :)

Nursing Mothers Worldwide Raise Money to Help with Family Tragedy

CHICAGO – June 3, 2004 – In the spring of 2004, the members of Breastfeeding.com and NursingMom.net, websites dedicated to nursing mothers who share breastfeeding information and parenting advice, decided to organize a cookbook as a charitable fundraiser.

Upon learning that a Breastfeeding.com member, Amy Lucas of Cahokia, Illinois, was tragically killed in a car accident on May 3, 2004, the members decided to donate the majority of the proceeds to the Amy Lucas Family Trust to assist in the support of her husband and five children. The Trust, managed by the Abundant Love Church in Cahokia, Illinois, will receive 80% of project profits; the remaining 20% will be donated to La Leche League International, a breastfeeding advocacy group Mrs. Lucas supported.

The cookbook, titled “Making More Than Milk: Food for the Whole Family” contains 500 recipes, helpful parenting tips and advice for nursing mothers, all contributed by members of the international Breastfeeding.com community.

The professionally published, hardcover book will cost $12.00, plus shipping. All orders must be pre-paid. Orders may be placed on-line, payment will be accepted via PayPal or by money order or personal check. Orders must be placed by July 31, 2004. Cookbooks will be delivered in September.

To order a cookbook, go to www.nursingmom.net

Our delicious cookbook contains over 500 recipes contributed by nearly 200 different members of our message board community. Recipes from all around the world are represented, many heirlooms that have been in families for generations. All recipes have been coded to denote allergens and special diets. The book includes food for every course of the meal from appetizer to dessert. Recipes range from very simple to very complex, from quick and kid-friendly to worthy of placement on a five star restaurant menu.

Looking for a simple, easy dinner that’s sure to be a hit with the kids? Try our favorite and famous CHICKEN TACOS recipe. This dish was requested so often by our members, it became the inspiration for the cookbook.

You might try the oft-requested ARTICHOKE LINGUINE recipe when putting together a quick, light meal with which to elegantly entertain guests.

You enjoy a culinary challenge? You salivate at the thought of a five course, romantic candlelit dinner for two? Take a peek at Eileen’s recipe for STUFFED SEA BASS OVER FIELD GREENS.

No matter what your level of skill or interest in cooking, you are sure to find hundreds of recipes that will delight you and your family for years to come when you add “Making More Than Milk: Food For the Whole Family” to your cookbook collection! Don’t delay, order today.

CBS Early Show today!
Will have a segment about breastfeeding, I thought the promo said "Is is just brest is best, or can not breastfeeding harm your baby?" or something like that. It's on in the early am, check your local listings (over by 9 here on California's central coast).

Hopefully, it will be basically good, but I'm not too optimistic.

A tough dilemma
Last night, mife told me about this group, I already know a couple of the members here, but I thought this would be a good place to go. So, I join up, and I come bearing questions from a dads perspective.

My wife had a baby a month ago, and unfortunately developed thrush. Because it got so bad, we had to resort to bottles, she wasnt even able to pump, resulting in using formula. We start treating the thrush, and finally managed to get it to go away, but there is a new problem. Our son now is unwilling to nurse at all. My wife is VERY upset about this, VERY frustrated, as am I. I do have responsibility in this as I have felt pressured to do more with our son, but I was incorrect in this, it was just my wife voicing frustration about having a child stuck to her 24/7.

Bottom line is this.

1. How do you dads handle the feeling of being left out? Not the standard, my wife doesnt pay me attention all the experts say happens, but the feeling like an outsider with your own child while your wife handles his care.

2. Any suggestions on what might be done to get our son to nurse exclusively again?

3. How can I express to my wife my understanding and concern about this, and support her to get back to nursing?

Not to sound like a new father, as we have had 8, but I am at a loss.

This is a place for dads who encorage the mothers of their children to share their breasts.

No, I mean with their kids.

Not that I have anything againt any other kind of sharing.

Breastfeeding women need all the suport they can get, so that they can keep doing what is best for their children.
