Watch Your Language! by Diane Wiessinger

A great article about the language we use when talking about breastfeeding and formula feeding. It is more than 20 years since this article was published in the Journal of Human Lactation, but it is just as pertinent and worthwhile today. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand how we normalise formula feeding of babies and how this impacts on attitudes to breastfeeding among mothers, their families, friends and supporters, and shifts the cultural norm away from breastfeeding, undermining one of the most natural and beneficial things a mother and child can do.
 

Emily Writes: The truth about breastfeeding consultants

One of the best articles on what it is like to be a mum desperate to breastfeed and having problems, and how lactation consultants can help; help mums with compassion, support and practical advice, without judging and without criticism:

"...They listened to me. They heard me. When I felt desperately alone: They were there for me. They empowered me. They made me feel strong. They wiped away my tears. They made me feel like I'm a good mother and I should be proud of myself. They made me feel like I mattered too. That I could trust myself as a mother. They were there when I felt like nobody else was."
