I’ve now been part of a breast-feeding and natural parenting support group for the better part of a year and as a result have had some strange conversations, both at in person meetings and online. Here are a few of my favorites:
“Take a look at this rash …” (This one is usually accompanied with a picture that would make anyone’s skin itch.)
Change.com petitions pushing for federal laws that would require childcare centers to allow cloth diapers.
“My midwife didn’t make it in time.”
“Anyone else ever want to read ‘Go the F***k To Sleep’ very loudly?”
Tales of babies biting while nursing so hard nipples lose feeling and/or bleed.
Informal tutorials on how to make everything form homemade cough syrup out of elderberries to self-induced lactation.
