Here is our question of the week: Dear SDBFC, I would love to learn more about nursing a second baby with a toddler running around. I remember how hard it was with C and how it consumed everything for the first couple weeks getting my daughter to latch, and nurse, and stay awake to nurse...and I am due in October when C will be two and the thought of doing that with her running around terrifies me. Any tips? Alicia
I love breastfeeding photos, I truly do!
There is nothing that embodies pure sweetness like a baby at breast, holding his mother's hand or shirt while he nurses to sleep.
So, to continue the celebration of National Breastfeeding Month, we are collecting your favorite breastfeeding photos. I have seen some absolutely gorgeous photos these past two weeks on Facebook, yet I am always worried that Facebook is going to remove them or they will just get lost in the Wall abyss. We should be celebrating these photos for many years, don't you think?
Will you share your photos with us?
We would love for your beautiful breastfeeding photos to continually inspire breastfeeding moms on our site.
If you would like to share your beautiful breastfeeding photos, please send them to email@example.com. With your permission, we will include them in this post, as well as throughout our blog for years to come!

Just last week, the American Academy of Pediatrics approved a resolution that advised pediatricians not to provide formula company gift bags, coupons, and industry-authored handouts to the parents of newborns and infants in office and clinic settings. In their rationale, they explained that: Research has demonstrated that the free distribution of commercial materials, such as formula samples, diaper bags, formula coupons, or other gifts via commercial infant formula marketing implicitly endorses formula feeding and creates the impression that clinicians favor formula feeding over breastfeeding, and research demonstrates that this activity decreases exclusivity and duration of breastfeeding.
