Happy World Breastfeeding Week (WBW)! In my last post I described some of my new creations that relate to this year’s WBW theme, “Breastfeeding and Work: Making It Work!” In the US, WBW starts today. I also have a few other offerings related to this theme that are free or almost free.
On this newly designed website, I now have a Handouts section, which includes two handouts (no surprise!) available to download freely and distribute widely. The first is a two-sided sheet, For the Caregiver of a Breastfed Baby. It describes how to avoid overfeeding and ways to support breastfeeding mothers. The second, When Stored Milk Smells Soapy or Rancid, contains essential information for any woman planning to store her expressed milk. It describes high-lipase milk (which often develops a soapy taste and smell during storage), and if you have it, what to do to ensure in the months ahead that your baby will accept your stored milk.
Another free resource is my webinar, Working and Breastfeeding Made Simple, which was chosen as the free bonus talk for the month of August 2015 on the website iMothering.com. Please share this link with any mothers with an interest in this topic.
Like last year, I’ve also slashed the price of my Breastfeeding Solutions app. Usually $4.99 USD, only from August 1 to August 7 this go-everywhere source of breastfeeding info and help will be available at LESS THAN HALF PRICE: $1.99 USD. Please take advantage of this special deal to get it on the phones of many more pregnant women, new mothers, and breastfeeding supporters worldwide.
Have a great week! And let me know how you’ll be celebrating.
