There have been a lot of questions lately on breastfeeding and pumping. I am just stopping both after a year. When I was having problems, I found the women on a breastfeeding list to be very helpful and supportive, so I thought Id pass it on. ( I originally got the info from this UCB parents list, and a special thanks to Anne Stinson, who called me directly to help me sign up). There is also a pump list for pumping moms you can access in the same way. (they are much more chatty though) Be sure to subscribe to teh digest version, or you will get a lot of emails every day. The info, as it appears on teh bottom of my recent digest, is: Subscription info at http://pregnancytoday.com/lists/faq.htm or send a msg to majordomo AT lists.pregnancytoday.com saying info bfing Sponsored by Pregnancy Today at http://pregnancytoday.com
To the person who had the breastfeeding question, could I recommend she also check another site? BabyCenter.com. I think there are tons of places to get info as well as get into chat rooms about breastfeeding -- I bet she'd find what she needed there.
There are three newsgroups useful for nursing mothers:
I just wanted to share with all the other parents out there as I found the above groups to be a tremendous resource and help to me during my first pregnancy and my subsequent nursing experience. Often times used breast pumps are offered for sale. I noticed that frequently on the List there are requests for used pumps and other nursing-related information, and thought that if the above groups were posted on the website, many more parents would have the benefits that I enjoyed.
