Party Like a Leaky Part 4 – International Edition

 The Leaky Boob is turning 5 years old and we’re celebrating ALL MONTH LONG! And this week the party is going international to include all the readers in the 173 countries where is read.

To celebrate we’re collecting and sharing your stories along with collecting some of our favorite maternity, breastfeeding, and baby products to give as gifts to YOU Leakies. Each week our celebration includes a different birthday bash bundle of prizes from our favorite brands, presents for Leakies. AND we’re growing!

Some of us aren’t breastfeeding or bottle-feeding any more (and you thought it was going to last forever) but you’re still a part of our community and you’re still nourishing and loving your family so we’ve grown to expand two more communities where we can talk about our highs and lows of that journey in a safe, judgment-free environment. Over on we talk a lot about, well, everything, specially about parenting and relationships. invites everyone to find a seat at the table embracing that sometimes there’s a little wobble in one of our legs, making room for allergies, and creatively nourishing our whole selves with recipes and a lot of honest conversation.

Last, but not least, we have launched our newsletter which brings together TLB, Beyond Moi, and OST, with exclusive special features not available anywhere else, giveaways, round ups, and more from the community. Our first newsletter and sign-ups available here

Our family is growing and we’re happy to share it with you!

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. I have just started reading your newsletters and am looking forward to them! I would love to read about how to encourage other moms to continue breastfeeding and not giving up so easily without sounding rude and judgemental

  2. I look forward to the encouragement that I didn’t get the first time around and hope that it helps to keep my journey going longer.

  3. I just signed up so am unsure what was in the first 2 issues but would like to see a section where women write in on their breastfeeding journey so that we can show people that you can’t compare your breastfeeding journey with anyone else’s.

  4. I just subscribed, so I am not sure what was in the first 2 issues. I would like to see women who are trying to breastfeed celebrated, especially those who have donated to other babies, or have not been able to exclusively breastfeed for whatever reason, but continue to try.

  5. Anna Groeger says

    I really enjoy the feeling of encouragement that comes along with it! I’m recommending the leaky boob to some recently pregnant friends of mine 🙂 I’m excited to share it with them!

  6. Encouragement and education on breastfeeding will help many parents and soon to be parents. From my experience people are dumbfounded when they know I’m still breastfeeding my toddler. I try to do it discreetly in a baby carrier however some people get nosy and peep through the hood. It doesn’t discourage me since I know I’m going to go with my child’s lead on when he’s ready to wean. But I don’t want him to see their reaction and take it as a bad thing on what he’s doing.

  7. Sara norris says

    I loved reading in the recent newsletter about the changes that have come with a nursing toddler. It made me think back to my own nursing experience and the vast difference of nursing a newborn versus a two year old. People always questioned why she was still nursing. I loved it. I loved that I didn’t have to guess, she told me what she wanted. It was different, but so beautiful.

  8. I’d love to see more breastfeeding humor.

  9. Marina Schekoske says

    I’m looking forward to reading about feeding passed the age of 1 and how to keep this going successfully

  10. Good luck to all in contest

  11. Jessica CG says

    Since I just signed up, I can’t comment on the two newsletters, but anything about breastfeeding would be very helpful to me.

  12. I just signed up for your news letter and iam so excited to get my very 1st news letter and start reading. Iam going to print them off and keep yhem in a folder so i can share with other moms that dont have internet.

  13. love hearing about other women’s breastfeeding stories <3 It's so helpful to hear from other mamas who are frank about the successes and challenges of their journey.

  14. Maria Loegering says

    I am a first time mom so I am looking forward to reading about the breastfeeding journeys of other moms as I begin my own. 🙂

  15. Veronica Bohan says

    Everything was great. More ppd

  16. Stephanie Campbell says

    I am new to your newsletter! Would love to see info on milk sharing and donation!

  17. I just love reading personal stories so that you realize you’re not alone.

  18. Liz Ticona says

    I’m new to your newsletter but I hope to get more articles and support on breastfeeding. My first baby boy, I felt very alone in it and so I gave up and didn’t nurse him , now i’m due with my 2nd child in July so I hope to be now more informed and know that I’m not alone in how hard breastfeeding is but so worth it 🙂

  19. Marcelle Simpson says

    I love TLB. Thank you, Nicole Gerber, for introducing me! Wouldn’t have made it to 14mo and going strong without the support and information I’ve found here.

  20. I like reading the personal stories. They are encouraging.

  21. Stephanie Sangatanan says

    The encouragement and practical advise

  22. So excited to read more newsletters! I would love to read encouraging stories and how to continue breastfeeding until you’re ready to wean when others are judgmental and rude about it!

  23. From the first newsletter I liked that you had a model search calling. Not that it was a model search but that it was about being confident no matter your size. I would like to see the newsletter shorter. It was a bit long especially around the recipe part. Condense the scroll factor is what I am getting at. I hope you also got the name part right at the beginning or will get it right. Right now it is just code. I’m excited for the next newsletter you guys did an excellent first one! Keep up the good work!!

  24. I like the stories & encouragement.

  25. I look forward to reading about success with breastfeeding beyond the first year! It’s hard to find people who encourage extended breastfeeding in my community. It’s nice to have a support network just a click away!

  26. Just signed up for the newsletter. Follow TLB on Facebook and love it!

  27. Danielle R. says

    I’d like to see more photos and stories about difficulties beginning nursing even if it’s not your first baby.

  28. Personal stories are awesome!

  29. I would love to see an article about weaning a booby junkie!

  30. I love how vital articles from TLB go. To me that tells me how relatable whys is written is and even if we have different journeys there are always common elements. That’s incredible to me. Parenthood is such a sacred journey and it’s tough! But TLB provides laughs and frames and those mmhmm moments that you just want to click “share” and enjoy sign your friends.

  31. Would love to win! Such an awesome giveaway! 😀

  32. Katie Robinson says

    This is an amazing opportunity!

  33. I am just signing up so I am not sure

  34. I like hearing the stories and it is very encouraging to read about other people’s experiences and triumphs.

  35. I’d like to see reviews for cloth diapers or mom related things.

  36. I like reading about breastfeeding a younger kiddo with older ones around, how to make that work, how to keep every one happy, and so on.

  37. I would love to see more personal stories. But, I really enjoy the Facebook page.

  38. I only recently subscribed to your newsletter but would love to hear more about tandem nursing/nursing while pregnant.

  39. I would love to read more articles supporting full term breastfeeding.

  40. I enjoyed reading about how nursing a 3 year old is differant.

  41. Love the Leaky B@@b! Thanks for normalizing Breastfeeding past infancy… In part thanks to your lovely posts, pics, and stories, my daughter and I have made it longer in our BF journey than I ever planned – 15 months and going strong! Would love to continue seeing posts & blogs about what life is like nursing a toddler!

  42. maybe reviews/comparisons on breast pumps that are typically covered by insurance.

  43. Becca sullivan says

    I just started reading your newsletter but I saw you at mommycon Chicago and would love to see everything you talked about there. All about knowing we are enough and of course how to stay above the negativity and stereo types that people have about breastfeeding especially extended breastfeeding. And keeping us up to date on useful nursing/parenting/baby products.

  44. Jessica Kae Buzzell says

    I’d like to read stories from moms about their own experiences. For example, I’m a mom of 5 who attempted to breastfeed each child but only successfully surpassed the 3 week mark with my youngest, who is also my only daughter. All my boys were lactose intolerant (one had a severe milk allergy) AND terrible reflux. Now with my daughter, I never imagined nursing past a year, but here she is 2 1/2 years old and going strong. My biggest obstacle with her (aside from the seemingly inevitable cases of mastitis) was having to eliminate things from my diet to figure out why my breastmilk seemed to upset her tummy. It turned out to be some sort of intolerance/allergy to any and all artificial sugars!! Something many women may not even consider. We can all help each other in ways we may not even realize.

  45. This is so awesome!

  46. im so glad we found you! Your page and blog has helped me to gianlly be successful at breastfeeding. My son and I are going 8 months strong!

  47. Michele meighan says

    This is so wonderful

  48. I look forward to more encouragement regarding toddler breastfeeding!

  49. I recently subscribed so I didn’t get the first two. I love everything from TLB! I would love anything encouraging and uplifting in a newsletter.

  50. So nice to hear words of encouragement!

  51. I’d love to see a feature about baby led weaning!

  52. I like reading personal stories about breastfeeding, it’s so interesting to me how each child’s breastfeeding story is unique.

  53. I love what you do for motherhood!

  54. i love tlb and am looking forward for the support the second time around that I didn’t know existed the first time.

  55. I love the relatable stories! The links were a bit small to see/read on my mobile.

  56. Maryann Sherrick says

    Yay! Thanks for the chance!

  57. Krissy reed says

    I’d love to see something featured about breastmilk being used for healing. Not just as a food source 🙂

  58. I would like to see advice on what to say to a mother
    struggling with their breastfeeding journey.

  59. I would LOVE this, especially the pump!

  60. Maryann Sherrick says

    I’d love to see more inspirational stories <3

  61. Amy Geller says

    if I remember correctly the second newsletter had a lot of different info/links. I really appreciate all of it but I in general am more likely to read what’s in newsletters if I don’t feel overwhelmed by info. But seriously, it’s all good/useful so maybe not–just a thought! Love all you do!

  62. Vanessa S. says

    I just signed up for the emails, but I’m excited to start receiving them!

  63. I just signed up for your newsletters but I’d like to read about the weaning process. My “baby” has been self weaning and I’m having mixed emotions!

  64. Jessica Miller says

    Just signed up for the newsletter but pretty awesome and generous giveaway 🙂

  65. Erin Hartnett says

    I would really like to see information about extended breastfeeding and how to maintain the relationship.

  66. Antoinette says

    I’ve been part of The Leaky Boob since December 2010. I’ve learned so much about breastfeeding and I’m proud to say that both my boys have been breastfed past 1 year (little one turned one year on 22 April). I haven’t read any newsletter but I’m excited to receive them.

  67. I would like to see more of getting the message out that breastfeeding isn’t always easy for everyone and confidence is key. From the minute we give birth, there is a lot of pressure. I had very well meaning nurses but I put so much time focusing on what they said I “should be doing” instead of enjoying my baby and the experience. Luckily I figured that out soon but I know lots of women that gave up too soon. And that’s okay too, if that’s their choice but when you want to breastfeed and feel you have to give up, that makes me sad.

  68. I would like to see some reviews of breast feeding friendly products, such as pumps etc

  69. This is amazing! Thank you!

  70. I liked the beyond yelling and messy children segments.

  71. I love all the encouragement and support! I would love to read personal stories of the journey other moms have gone through. It’s great to know that we are not alone in the struggles that breastfeeding can sometimes bring us.

  72. I’d love to see some info/tips for moms who have excess lipase in their milk. Pumping has been a real struggle for us because I cannot freeze the milk without scalding it first.

    Keep up the fantastic work!

  73. I’m a first time mom so I’d love to read an article that deals with advice for continuing to breastfeed when you’re feeling like you’ve had enough but baby’s too young/not ready to wean.

  74. new to the newsletter but have been following you on fb and Instagram for a while. I love the support and knowledge you post. And the inspiration to keep going

  75. I’d love more tips for nursing toddlers, especially how to keep them from pulling on your top in public (I don’t mind feeding him in public, but don’t want the world to see my business).

  76. This would be the greatest blessing! Even being given the chance to win this is bringing tears to my eyes!

  77. in newsletters I would like to see about the practical aspects of feeding past 12 months and still having routine?
    Also gentle suggestions for encouraging self settling and when this would be age appropriate.

    I love tlb only trouble is I’m in oz so many things do not translate as we use metric system and also many retailers aren’t available here that you recommend so that is tough.

  78. I love anything that helps support moms

  79. Thank you for going International
    It’s nice to see encouragement for breastfeeding toddlers and past the first year! I’m at that stage and need to come to positive pages to recover from the rude comments received on a daily basis. She JUST turned one 🙁

  80. I didn’t even realize you put out a newsletter! 🙂

  81. So excited for this giveaway 😀

  82. I just signed up for your newsletter. I’ve been following your Instagram page for awhile. I love hearing stories from other moms. It’s a great way to bless and encourage one another.

  83. I thought the story of your changing relationship was fantastic. I was rushed (peer pressure) to end the nursing relationship with my daughter earlier than I would’ve liked. I’m still nursing my 8-month-old boy now, and with the encouragement of your site and people like you, I hope to have a long, happy nursing journey with him.

  84. I love the support. Please keep that up. I’m about to have baby #3 and hope to breastfeed much longer than I did with my first 2.

  85. Just started reading your newsletters but I would love to see more articles on specific challenges of breastfeeding like lip/tongue ties, inverted nipples, etc.

  86. I would enjoy great tips and tricks for plugged ducts and other issues you find your self with during your breast feeding journey

  87. would like to see info on balancing routine with extended feeding
    Also gentle self settling help and when it’s age appropriate

  88. I am new to this site!! We are in the planning stages of baby number 3. I am always looking for tips on breastfeeding!! I tend to have over supply and high lipase.

  89. amy bauman says

    this looks like a great giveaway! fantastic prizes!

  90. I’d love to see more about how to handle when people are taken aback at nip… How to deal with the conversation. 🙂

  91. Frédérique says

    Looking forward to getting the first newsletter!

  92. Brittany H says

    I would love to see some info on nursing a young toddler while pregnant in the newsletter!! Also, I loved the big boobs segment of the latest newsletter 🙂

  93. Monica Flores says

    I’m so excited about this giveaway!

    I had latch issues and exclusively pumped for a couple of months after a cesarean. It was a heartbreaking journey, and I felt unsupported and like I was failing. I am now pregnant with baby #2 and looking forward to the birth of my second son in July, and confident that I have the support (through sites like yours and in person) to have a different path with this wee boy– and also the confidence to know that whatever the outcome, I am not a failure!

  94. Irene Apassingok says

    I love the Leaky Boob! I first saw them on Instagram and now plan to follow them on Facebook. I don’t breastfeed from the tap, but I pump, so my baby girl gets her milk “to-go”. I only pump a few ounces a day and have been supplementing with formula since baby girl was 3 months old.

  95. I just signed up to start receiving the newsletter but I would love to see tips on how to encourage others to continue breastfeeding without getting told off.

  96. Happy Birthday! You’ve inspired me in so many ways!!!! Thank you!

  97. Happy birthday!!

  98. love this! Love your blog.

  102. I am hoping to see more education, encouragement, and breastfeeding resources!

  103. Id like to see more discussion of DMER in the future!

  104. Efrat Grunin says

    Long time reader, fb fan and first time commenter!
    All you post I love- especially posts for working pumping moms like me!

  105. Sarah Garcia says

    Your blog/facebook page is the one of the reasons I was able to work through my problems with low supply and successfully EXCLUSIVELY breastfeed my daughter for 2.5 years! I recommend your information to ALL new moms and moms who may be struggling. It’s so inspiring and makes you feel like you can go on even in the tough times.

  106. I have not Bern on the mailing list prior to this for the newsletter so I’m not sure what’s included but am excited to find out! I would love to see a short story featured each week about a Mom’s breastfeeding journey ( the good, the bad and the ugly!)

  131. I just signed up for the newsletter, looking forward to reading it in the future.

  132. I just subscribed, so I’m not sure about the last issues, but I love reading about breastfeeding. With my first, I only planned on breastfeeding for 6 months, but because of useful sites like this, I learned about extended feeding and breastfed for 18 months with her, 18 months with my second, and 5 months and still going with my 3rd and last. I love that you can help spread the word, and possibly inform more women about the benefits of breastfeeding.

  133. Stefanie baker says

  147. Susan Adams says

    I am new to your newsletter, but would like to see a focus on those of us moms who would exclusively breastfeed but for whatever reason end up not being able to. Personally, my son had a tongue tie at birth that was corrected and things improved at one week, but then at 4 months he was not gaining well and had to start supplementing. I felt horrible guilt at the time, but now I accept it, breastfeed as much as possible, and he is doing well.

  148. best giveaway ever! So need the sleep consultation for my two year old!

  149. Love your help/advice/encouragement on facebook. Has helped me through my journey with babies!

  152. Leslie Mullins says

    i’d love to see real women who have a story about breastfeeding to share.

  153. New to the newsletter too. Very excited to read the first one. Always love to read/ hear about mums supporting other mums, babywearing and breastfeeding on the go, positives to feeding past a year as I have previously fed to 2yrs and will most likely go longer with our 9month old daughter but would like to be armed with comebacks to the comments you get!

  154. Jenny Robinson says

    I love the encouragement you give to all moms! Keep it up!

    • Happy birthday. This is such an awesome opportunity, thank you!

    • Megan Drane says

      I just subscribed! I’d love to hear tips and suggestions on how to successful breastfeed through teething. My lil man is 4 months and he just got his two bottom teeth. The thought of teeth and breastfeeding has always scared me. So far he has only nibbled but I’m scared of him chomping down someday!

  155. Casey Claypool says

    I’d love to see more education on different pumps and how to make pumping more effective!

  156. I would love to see more information on extended bfeeding! My two older boys both stopped right around 1 year. I just love the support for all Mommas on here though! So nice to see!

  157. Antoinette says

    More info on toddler sleep solutions!

  158. I’ve only just signed up but id like to read peoples personal journeys and maybe bit about when breastfeeding doesn’t feel right. It tongue and lip ties, nipple thrush etc

  159. Jessie S. says

    I already receive the newsletter and really enjoy it. I have read both while up in the middle of the night nursing my new little girl. I enjoy the stories, recipes, and the article from your husband too! I like that he participates. Is like to see more recipes that can help with milk production.

  160. I love your newsletters! What I like best is the positive breastfeeding encouragement. I guess that’s what I like best about the site too. Too much mommy bashing on the Internet. This is a breath of fresh air.

  161. I’d love to see something about how to help your older child feel included when breastfeeding a newborn

  162. I would like to see articles with tips on returning to work and pumping.

  163. thank you! As a first time mom, I’d love any info you can provide on “forceful letdown,” as that’s the issue I seem to be having. There are lots of resources on what to do if you aren’t producing enough milk, but my issue is the opposite and my poor sputtering, gassy baby and I think it’s a real problem!

  164. Wow! Such great items

  165. Breastfeeding baby #2 at present. Enjoy the support from the leaky boob!

  166. I stopped breastfeeding with my daughter earlier than I would have liked because of lipase/ going back to work. I struggled emotionally with this and suffered from PP anxiety. Articles on either would be great! Amazing giveaway!

  167. brigette yerke says

    Would love to see more about nursing during pregnancy and tandem nursing.

  168. I would love to read more on tandem nursing a toddler & newborn, as well as tips to avoid sibling jealousy when nursing. This will be me in a few months

  169. megan etches says

    Thank you for the giveaway . I look forward to the newsletter

  170. i love your blog. I’m so excited to start recieving your newsletter!

  171. Kristel I says

    I would love to see an article on early weaning. Breast feeing until 2, 3, or longer is great, but my first baby weaned herself at 22 months and her sister is well on her way by nursing for only a couple minutes before bedtime at 18 months. Thank!

  172. I love the encouragement and reading comments to know other people share the same experiences as us

  173. I’d love to hear more about breastfeeding while pregnant and with complications.

  174. just signed up for the newsletter! Looking forward to reading it!! Thank you!

  175. Didn’t even realize that there was a newsletter! Would love to see anything about breastfeeding and the challenges mom’s face. Also maybe tips on how to get your little one to sleep better would be awesome! 🙂

  176. i have been following you guys for awhile now. It helped me through some hard times. I’m sure there will be more help in the future since this is my first breastfed baby. Thank you for what you do for everyone!!!

  177. Katie Psaromatis says

    I look forward to learning some great breastfeeding on the go techniques.

    Im a soon to be mom and I’m planning on breastfeeding. I have bookmarked your page because I see myself using it as a great resource as I try to figure out breastfeeding!

  182. I just signed up for the newsletter so I can’t comment on my favorite parts, however, I am expecting my first baby and am interested in learning all I can about breastfeeding.

  183. Joanna Pistilli says

    I just signed up for the newsletters, but would like to see troubleshooting-type Q&A – I’m a new mom and just starting on my breastfeeding journey so hearing some of the obstacles and how to overcome them, proactively, would be tremendously helpful!

  184. I’m new to the newsletter, but looking forward to getting the first one!

  185. love the reminder that other moms are dealing with similar issues

  186. I thought they were well laid out and informative of what you have to offer!

  187. I know you have done a lot on extended nursing, but it’s what relates to me most right now so I’d love to see more! I work in healthcare (pediatrics) and it is thankfully the normal to go until one year. This is great and I know much different than a lot of places. But technically you aren’t covered to continue pumping at work past a year and everyone I know at work has stopped nursing at 1 year. My first stopped just shy of 2 1/2 on her own and I’m letting my 16 month old self wean as well. Because of shear guilt that I was inconveniencing coworkers, right at 1 year I switched to just morning and night. Articles discussing dealing with that transition time are most helpful to me.

  188. Danielle C says

    I love product reviews in the newsletter. I’m happy to be signed up now!

  189. New to the newsletter, but have followed on Facebook since the birth of my first baby. I would lreally ove to know more about tandem nursing, especially multiple stories from other mamas. This would be so amazing to win. Good luck to everyone:]

  191. I missed the first two but pumping at work support and tips are always welcome!

  192. Excited to start getting the newsletter and enter the contest as I am about to have my second baby and try breastfeeding again as the first time I was not successful.

  207. I just signed up, but I’d love to see an article on what to expect from pumping and how much is normal production. I see so many mamas worried that they have low supply after seeing pictures from moms that are able to pump 8-10 oz or even more in one session.

  208. As a HELLP syndrome survivor with a preemie/nicu stay, I’d love to see support for all of these.

  209. i love the personal stories you tell, about other breastfeeding mothers or your own family. This tells me we are not alone in this and the support you offer is invaluable.

  227. The personal stories is my favorite and I’d love to see something on how we can include daddy more in the breastfeeding journey.

  243. I loved seeing Jessica at Mommycon Minneapolis! Such an inspiring talk!

  244. Laura Taylor says

    I enjoy making breastfeeding commonplace. It heartens me to read stories of everyday moms on their breastfeeding journeys. Everyone’s story is different, but it all adds up to visibility! I’m excited to see what TLB comes up with for the newsletter.

  245. The encouragement

  246. What you wrote about nursing a toddler (mine turned 3 4/7) in the newsletter was spot on and beautiful!

  250. Aleecia Marrufo says

    Hi! Thank you so much for bringing awareness and love to breastfeeding mothers. You have inspired many. Myself included.

    My son was born with severe heart defects and trisomy 21 (down syndrome). He spent the first 9 weeks in the hospital enduring multiple surgeries and procedures. He was tube fed a special formula due to post op complications. Multiple doctors, surgeons, nurses, and even LC’s and PT’s/OT’s all told me he would never even take a bottle. Let alone latch to my breast. Well, October 21st he was cleared for breast milk. We tried bottles to no avail. I had been pumping every two hours round the clock to ensure I would have ample supply if he could ever have my milk. I put him to my breast and he didn’t do anything. I was heart broken. And terrified. We tubed his feed. A few hours later we tried again. Still nothing. We tubed another feed. I went and bought a nipple shield. That night he latched. And ate. From my breast. And he hasn’t stopped since! He is almost nine months and still EBF. We ditched the shield almost three months ago. Next month will be our 6 month nursiversary. We have no plans of stopping any time soon.

    Thank you for all of your hard work and inspiration. I knew other women had been through difficult situations as well from following your page and I knew we could feed the way we hoped. So again, many thanks.


  251. I’d like to see a list about not feeling guilty when breastfeeding doesn’t work out, and encouragement that Justus because it didn’t work out with one, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to with another child.

  252. So excited to find this blog! I’m expecting my first and can’t wait to breastfeed!

  253. HollymMead says

    With all the babies in my orbit being born, I can think of lots of places I could use all this awesome stuff to bless a lot of new mamas!

  254. I like the Stable Table portion.

  255. Candy Stephenson-Otoya says

    I am just signing up so not really sure but I will add that I would love a lot of info and support on not giving up because I did and hated myself for it.

    I’d love to see more stories about moms BFing in other countries and the challenges (or support) that they face!

  270. Brand new, but from reading the other comments looks like I’ll love the level of encouragement!

  271. Looking forward to following your site and getting new ideas for my growing family!

  272. The first 2 went to my husband’s email. His response is great. With a confused face he asked why he was receiving Leaky boob newsletters! Lol He took it in stride and we had a nice conversation. I’ve bfd a combined 6yrs thus far, with #4 on the way. He assured me he would forward the next newsletter to myself. I look forward to reading it. It’s always enjoyable hearing stories and getting encouragement and advice from let leakies.

  273. More personal encouragement from others who’ve been they’re.

  274. Kimberly Massee says

    Im a first time mom! breastfeeding has been a journey so far! looking forward to any hints and tips.

  275. Sarah Schiro says

    I loved your article on nursing toddlers. None of my friends are nursing their toddlers so I don’t talk about it with anyone— It helps to remember that what I am doing is actually normal.

  276. Nia Simon says

    all the encouraging comments that help moms to breastfeed and to popularize and normalize what it means to be a breast feeding mom!
    Keep up the great work!

  277. I would like to see more resources for PPD and anxiety and how to continue breastfeed through it.

  278. Hillary Ottolini says

    TLB is such an informative, supportive community. I’ve been following your FB page for years. Keep up the good work! More information on how supply/demand works in the breastfeeding dyad would be helpful. So many new moms worry about supply

  279. Tanya Leavitt says

    I love the few letters that I’ve gotten. I would love to see product comparisons.

  280. Amanda Selenke says

    I just started reading them, but it’s nice to have support and encouragement for breastfeeding moms. It’s not always easy!

  281. Elizabeth Stallman says

    I really enjoy all of your posts. They are funny, heartwarming and inspirational

  282. This has been such a huge support through two babies now! We made it to 2 years with the last one!

  283. i love the community of it all! This is my second time around with breastfeeding, and even though it’s been MUCH easier than the last one, I have thought about quitting early on. Now with pumping while at work, I worry all the time if I’m doing it the ‘right’ way.

  284. Julissa Koelble says

    I didn’t know there had already been two issues of this news letter! I am very exited and looking forward to the newer editions coming up. I lived in Peru for a short time and was pleasantly surprised with the acceptance of public breastfeeding and the way in which pregnant women and people with small children where often given priority treatment (as in getting ahead of the line at the back and such), and no one got angry about it!. Coming back to the U.S. I miss that special treatment and would like to see a little of what other moms around the world experience when it comes to breastfeeding in public (or not) and what motherhood in general is like for them.

  285. Happy Birthday!

  286. Cassandra Lockshaw says

    I love the newsletters! I’d like to see stories of how the breastfeeding journey has went for different women. It’s nice reading about how other women handle the challenges of breastfeeding. I’m currently bf my 14 month old son and while I love our relationship it can be frustrating at times so I would be nice to hear how moms of toddlers handle the breastfeeding relationship with their toddler and also with people who think the toddler needs to wean.

  287. Jenn Faszholz says

    I’m new to you and your newsletters, so I’m looking forward to it all 😉

  288. i love reading others stories and getting support

    I’d like to see information on breastfeeding support for full time working moms who pump at work and nurse at home that includes extended breastfeeding info.M

  303. i can’t wait for useful information and support right in my email!

  304. Jenny Weber says

    I’m enjoying the newsletters! Have you ever featured the benefits of breastfeeding while pregnant on your blog? I’ll check into it myself, but I thought I’d ask in case I get an answer before I find the post! It would be a great subject for a newsletter, too.

  305. Elianna Nicole says

  317. Susan Heaton says

    I would like to see more guest posts/stories about personal experiences and bf journeys… like latch issues, nursing strikes, part time feeding with going back to work, tandem feeding, pnd and feeding etc.
    But TLB is so great already!

  323. I am new to the newsletter so I am not sure if this has been covered, but I would love some information on how to nurse through teething stages! My 2nd baby was teething so hard I got infected and developed mastitis twice. I would love to nurse beyond 6-7 months with baby #3 so reading about some suggestions for that would give me some ideas and encouragement =D

  360. Kim Wriston says

    I just signed up for the newsletter, but I think it might be good to offer support to NICU moms in regards to breastfeeding and exclusively pumping. My daughter was born at 26 weeks and spent 4.5 months in the NICU. I pumped for 8 months before I had to stop for health reasons. I felt that the lactation consultants had given up on me. When my daughter came home, I nursed her on my own several times, but her reflux was too severe and she has extremely slow growth, so is still on high calorie formula at 13 months. She does get some breast milk from the deep freeze now. I wish that I had more support during that time. Pumping was very difficult for me.

  361. I love seeing BFing resources for plus size Mamas – I have the worst time with nursing bras.

  373. I like the breastfeeding mom fashion!

  374. Elizabeth says

    I just signed up for your newsletter and would love to see stories of moms overcoming “booby traps.” I struggled so hard with the first few months of breastfeeding but managed to make it 15 months with my first and 25 months with my second. I plan on going even longer with my third.

  375. Megan Lane says

  377. Ashley Walsh says

    I have loves the leaky boob ever since mommycon Memphis last year!

  378. I accidentally deleted one newsletter and to be honest, haven’t read the second one yet (shh). But I’d love to see more about breast milk donation. I’ve been blessed to be able to breastfeed both of my babies so far, and I don’t respond to a pump very well so I’ve never been able to donate, but I’d love for the idea to become more widespread.

  379. I always like to see posts about new products that help with breastfeeding

  380. Lauren McClain says

  383. I would love to read about tips for gracefully managing the relationship between a toddler and a new baby.

    I love all of the inspirational stories and support your website gives to breastfeeding mamas and I have learned so much from dimpling following your Facebook. Keep doing what you’re doing!

  389. what. Fantastic give away!

  390. Rachael Hurley says

    Happy birthday! This is awesome!

  391. Carrie Miller says

    I can confidently say that without the support of pages and websites like TLB so many women would not have the resources they need to be successful with breastfeeding and gentle parenting. It is imperative that resources like this be continually provided for woman and men to become more knowledgeable and empowered. My family and my hubby’s family are very uneducated when it comes to breastfeeding and gentle parenting. I really feel that my success with parenting and breastfeeding have solely been on the constant reminders and education from TLB that I am doing things correctly. I do not think I would be breastfeeding my 2 year old daughter with out the resources you provide all day, every day. And I know I’m not the only one who is being helped from your resources. Thank you for al that you do for women and families all over the world! 🙂

  392. Catherine B says

    Would love to see information on very extended breastfeeding, since I have had a couple of kids hang on to school age.

  393. Breastfeeding while pregnant.

    Essential oils that are safe during breastfeeding/pregnancy

  394. Rebekah S says

    It’s so inspiring to hear all the stories!

  395. Cheyenne McCutchan says

    I loved reading Jessica’s thoughts on nursing Sugarbaby. I too am nursing a 3 year old, and her words just sound so familiar, but, of course, unique as well, like all of our breastfeeding journeys. I’m nursing a new baby too, so maybe that’s why I cried. 😉

  396. Lauren Simms says

    Would love to see info and help for those of us with supply issues like pcos and igt

  397. nina mackrain says

    I just signed up so I’m excited to see what sort of topics you include in your newsletters 🙂

  398. I love reading about overcoming struggles- both my babies were tongue tied and breastfeeding was such a struggle, especially when no one knew what I was talking about! I also love the humor 🙂

  399. Love this page! Awesome opportunity!

  400. I’m a FTM due in July. I’m looking forward to the supportive community TLB has created.

  401. Missy Bobby york says

    i love seeing all the article about celebrities and stuff about normalizing breastfeeding!

  402. I just signed up and can’t wait to start receiving them! I’d love to read some more information about how my hormones are effected by breastfeeding. I was definitely not prepared for this aspect of breastfeeding!

  403. Kristina D says

    I just signed up so I haven’t seen the first 2 newsletters yet. However, from reading the other comments it seems like it is very useful and encouraging. As I am about to start my breastfeeding journey as soon as baby is born any day now, and it seems like I will have lots of questions and concerns along the way, I look forward to reading it!

  404. Karen sanchez says

    Thanks i hope i win! Great prizes

  405. Breena Strock says

    I love all the information and giveaways from TLB

  406. JacLynn Dabbs says

  407. I just signed up for the newsletters!

  408. I would love to see more information on making it work as a SAHM on a tight budget!

  409. Morgan Canady says

    I would like to see features on helping people understand that you don’t have to be hardcore about one way or another. For example, cloth diapering. Encouraging family’s that they can try it or just do it at home if they aren’t comfortable doing cloth exclusively. The same can go to encouraging parents with breastfeeding.

  410. Samantha Mills says

    Would love to win this give away. TLB has gotten me through so long nights of nursing my little munchkin.

  411. Laura Snow says

    I would just love a tula!! and everything else offered! it would be put to good use in my home of 3 kiddies 3 and under 🙂

  412. Ivana Mendez says

    I haven’t checked out the newsletter yet, but I’d love to see the success stories to help encourage others moms to continue through breastfeeding struggles.

  413. Sarah Elyce says

    I love to see women write their breastfeeding stories. It is empowering and beautiful to read the different journeys.

  414. Angel Emory-Smith says

    I love reading the personal stories. Recommend to all my mommy friends. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  415. Nicki Lawson says

    I just signed up for the newsletters and I can’t wait to start reading them. I would like to find out more info on keeping supply up during teething when my boy doesn’t want to nurse as much.

  416. Thank you for the opportunity. Tagged a few friends and shared in our local Babywearing/Educational Co-op.

  417. Hazel Gloriana says

    I’m happy for people like you who encourage breastfeeding! I’m on my 2nd baby and while I was still pregnant with him, I thought of only breastfeeding for maximum of 6 months. But now I can see how breastfeeding not only keeps him healthy but also keeps that bond between us. I was extremely saddened when I had to undergo emergency surgery and couldnt breastfeed him. now I am recovering and I’d love to breastfeed him as long as I can!

  418. Christina K. says

    What a fantastic prize package!!!!

  419. I am brand new to the newsletter and am VERY excited to see what you have in store. I would love to learn a few things about why breastfeeding past a year is important. I have done it with two of my kiddos (including right now–nursing my 1.5yr old as I write this!). I would love to have quick tid-bits to share with those who give me strange looks! 😉

  420. Abi Marks says

    I love the content already, but would appreciate more about extended breastfeeding. I’m also interested in the breastfeeding culture in other places around the world. Keep up the good work!

  421. Sarah Akers says

    I love reading TLB newsletters! I think more links or articles about weaning, either by baby’s lead or mother’s, would be awesome. I get that this site is more about current breastfeeding, but covering all the bases would be really helpful.

  422. I am new to your newsletter but if they are anything like your posts then I know it will be supportive of moms :).

  423. newly signed up can’t wait to read it.

  424. Melanie healey says

    So awesome! I have no relieved a newsletter yet!

  425. Chels Howard says

    I love this page, I love reading all these mommies breastfeeding journeys and what helped them, what worked and didn’t work. How they kept up the supply. I will be looking to this page for encouragement when I have my second baby.

  426. I just subscribed and am looking forward to reading about extended breastfeeding. Not many in my circle do, so it’s nice to read about other mama’s experiences.

  427. I would like to see more on weaning a toddler. It is causing mom major anxiety/stress, baby is not ready, not getting much help from spouse or outside family.

  428. Jessica Johnson says

    I absolutely love the issues on changing relationships. My last baby is 11 months old, and even though we see no end in sight to nursing, reading others experiences about how their bond is still strong after weaning gives me hope. Sorry for any errors, typing while breastfeeding lol.

  429. I haven’t received a newsletter yet, but I would love to see information in an upcoming newsletter about breastfeeding with Diabetes. I’m an insulin dependent Type 2 diabetic and I’m really worried about how I’ll go managing my sugar levels and everything when I start breastfeeding my baby due in August. As if breastfeeding wasn’t scary enough, I’m freaking out about having highs and lows while feeding 🙁

  430. Olivia Alberts says

    Breastfeeding testimonials! 🙂

  431. My favorite was the cookie recipe!!!!

  432. I would like information about which slings and baby carriers are suitable for nursing in!

  433. Elizabeth says

    I love that I found this blog when I did.
    As I struggle with infertility issues, I cannot wait to be a mom! Being a doula and catching up on blogs like this is so helpful!

  434. My sweet baby is due in December and I could use all of this and would love it So much! I love everything about this!

  435. I’d love to see some tips and resources for mamas who have babes with tongue and/or lip ties.

  436. My baby is due in May! I could use all these items!!!!!!

  437. Thank you for having full articles in your newsletter. It’s nice not having to click through to get the whole story. Everything you write abd the guests your feature are amazing.

  438. I love reading stories about other mothers struggles and triumphs!

  439. I can non wait to become a mama in may!

  442. Tracey Coats says

    Would love to win! Due in July!

  443. I’m new to the newsletters, but I’d love to read about personal stories and nursing while baby wearing!

  444. 🙂 I love the support this page provides

  445. Christie DeMarchi says

    I love the instagram feed and am enjoying reading the stories on the blog.

  446. Lindsay Reynolds says

    Just subscribed, i’d love to see problem solving recommendations in the newsletter!! Tried and tested by moms, like the actual best breast pad for moms who leak gallons an hpur!

  447. I would scream 😉

  448. Thank you for opening a support system that truly I believe helped me be successful nursing for the first time with my third child

  450. Mallory wright says

    I love the support and I really enjoy the personal stories.

  451. I would love to see more about plus size moms! 🙂

  452. Nursing a toddler, handling gymnurstics in public, breastfeeding humor.

  453. Christine M says

    I Iike reading the different perspectives and experiences with breastfeeding. I never thought about much other than my own, which in themselves are two totally different ones!

  454. Jennifer Hardin says

    I would like to see more cloth diaper reviews and plus size momma stuff

  455. Jessica Purdy says

    I just found out that I am pregnant and would love this! I love reading your blog and posts. They are so helpful and encouraging. Thank you!

  456. Bianca Abbott says

    I am just about to have my third child and am looking forward to your newsletter. I have only just subscribed so haven’t had a. Chance yo look at it yet, but I am hoping there will be a section written by a LC, that tackles common BF issues.

  457. love the stories!! Makes me feel like I’m not alone in this new journey!

  458. would love to win.

  459. I like the “ask the expert” section! I’m expecting my first baby in September so need all the advice and resources I can get 🙂

  460. Just subscribed to your news letter! Can’t wait to read it!!

  461. Since my LO has recently started solids, I’d love some info on balancing that and breastfeeding.

  462. I’d love to see more features on African American mothers who breastfeed or just have more pictures of them. In general our rates of breastfeeding are very low.

  463. Michelle T says

    I’m not sure which is the first, second, or third… I’ve been occasionally receiving emails from you for a while… In the one from today, I like the comic! It was a very useful shape lol!

  464. Michelle. Curtis says

    Love your site and newsletter. I like the stories from other moms and the comic strips !!

  465. Karlee Gagnon says

    I would love more tips on pumping. I wasn’t able to with our first and I’m hoping to be able to with our second.

  466. Jennifer otting says

    I like your newsletter about weaning. I am still breastfeeding my 28.5 month old and now a newborn. I am trying to figure the right time to wean him.

  467. The whole newsletter was so fun! It has been a WHILE since I read through more than the first couple of lines of a newsletter. I didn’t even realize these were the first two newsletters until just *now* – I kept thinking, “How have I been missing this newsletter all this time? This is FANTASTIC!”
    I’m not sure what makes it so great. The humor/satire mixed with helpful information, recipes, real-life stories, etc…just a fab combo. Thanks 🙂

  468. I really enjoyed the weaning info. I have an almost 3 yr old nursing and a 9 month old. I am starting to feel pretty emotionally/physically done with nursing my first. Anyways, the info definitely interested me. I like the newsletters so far- a lot! 🙂

  469. Well for me personally they arrived at the same time as baby number 2. I haven’t visited the website in well over a year and I was just beginning to search out resources again. Now I have plenty of late night reading material.

  470. Emily Myers says

    I’d love to see articles on other uses of breastmilk and also articles on donating breastmilk (if there are storage standards, locations that will accept, ect.)

  471. The comic was pretty great!!

  472. I think it’s all a great newsletter. The comic at the end of the last one was cute. ^_^ I like the Ask and Expert. Over all it’s a great thorough newsletter. 🙂

  473. I just subscribed, but I would love to see stories on full time working moms who have been successful at extended breast feeding.

  474. I LOVED the editorial in this week’s newsletter about all the different ways her babies weaned. My first two also weaned much earlier than I would have preferred (at 15 and 14 months, respectively) because my milk supply would completely dry up at the end of my first trimester with my next pregnancy. My third baby didn’t make it to his birthday, so I never got the opportunity to nurse him. I’m actually enjoying this little break of having my body to myself right now, while I’m waiting to heal before trying for our fourth (and last) baby (though my boobs are just GONE…what’s with that?!). I’m really hoping that things work out with our last and that I’m able to nurse for at least two years (which is a challenge, since I work full-time outside the home). There’s just something so special about those cuddles while they nurse!

  475. I just recently signed up and have only had a chance to read this recent newsletter. I absolutely loved it! I really enjoyed the fact that it’s supportive no matter how far anyone has made it in breastfeeding. I didn’t do too well with my first, only made it three months while supplementing, I just couldn’t get the hang of it and had no support. I am currently breastfeeding our second son and have made it to nine months, but I a have been having the hardest time with sleep since we brought him home. I would love to see a newsletter about how to get a better routine with the attachment of nursing. How to get babies to sleep more than an hour without having to be attached.

  476. Georgia Gonzalez says

    What to expect with newborn cluster feeding info helped me to get through that time without worrying!

  477. Hayley Elliott says

    I newsletter on how to nurse while babywearing in all the different types of carriers. Nursing on the go is so convenient, but can sometimes be quite hard to figure out.

  478. I would love info on getting a baby to take a bottle (if it’s already on here sorry! I must have missed it). I’m a WAHM so I’m with my baby most of the time but it would nice to be able to leave her for a little bit of I need to. Thank you this blog is great!!

  479. The wonderful stories and encouragement!

  480. Only signed up recently so not sure on first 2 issues but it would be great to see some more real stories like people who started off with complications breastfeeding and still succeeded to continue feeding. Or stories just about the journey as it’s very worrying for a new mum whether they will be able to do or not and it will show them that everyone is different and there might be hurdles to get over but it can be done in the end

  481. I think a short, inspirational story from a mom who has had a specific breastfeeding struggles would be nice, and maybe to balance it out a funny one as well.

  482. Really explore the cultural ‘Booby traps’ that we have today and really create a community.

  483. I enjoyed all the various linked articles– something for everyone! The comic did make me grin 🙂

  484. Christina Geraci says

    I just signed up for your newsletter, but any articles that offer encouragement to keeping pressing on with breastfeeding, staying healthy, recipes…love them all!

  485. i am so grateful to the leaky community. I would love some guidance on ways of celebrating breastfeeding and sharing my experiences in ways that don’t make women who don’t or can’t bf feel judged.

  486. Miranda McCaig says

    I love reading Sugarbaby’s Breastfeeding Tips. I think that would be an awesome addition!

  487. rachel carota says

    The latest newsletter I liked the weaning tips.

  488. i just signed up for the newsletter. I have been with TLB since almost the beginning. I can’t wait to have all this help again with the next one. He/she will be here in October.

  489. Kristi Morton says

    I liked reading your personal breastfeeding story and how you weaned each child. It helped me to feel less guilt about how I weaned my oldest and feel more confident that it can go smoother with this baby.

  490. Katie Maroney says

    I love hearing your personal stories!

  491. I would love to see more funny things “when breastfeeding goes bad” (not bad as but those things that happen to all of us!) also maybe more on staying strong against nurses when you are in hospital. With my first the nurse gave me bad advice and I wasn’t able to nurse.

  492. I would love to read more about encouraging moms to breast feed without sounding like that person that everyone rolls their eyes at! Is that possible ?! HA! Also I would love to learn about helping encourage moms to get milk donations and more of a support network there & maybe encouraging moms TO donate to other moms! I often read about moms that have to supplement and they are horrified, I think I would feel angry with my body personally. I help one mom and donate my milk to her since she can’t produce enough. I wish I could donate more to other moms!

  493. Suzanne Anderson says

    I’ve only just started following you however I’ve found both the stories about your Daughter and her dancing along with your own experiences breastfeeding inspirational. So maybe more inspirational stories from yourself and other women.

  494. I Wish that there was more for women who suddenly have to stop breast feeding due to illness or the need to take medications and want to resume breastfeeding when they’re done taking the medication. I had complications after giving birth and every lactation consultant I called was too busy to answer or get me an appointment and the la leche league in my area didn’t know what to do. I bfd for 7 months and I had to stop for 2 and my son never went back. It was heartbreaking

  495. Rhiannon Ramkissoon says

    Love the information and support here!! Would be thrilled to win the Diono!!
