World Breastfeeding Week is August 1st through the 7th. The Leaky B@@b is excited to host our first blog carnival and will launch our very own website! There will be give-aways, guest writers, links to other blog participating and maybe a few more great things up our sleeves. Will you participate? Know someone that should? The theme is "Perspectives: Breastfeeding from every Angle."
I'm looking for Everything from the medical/health perspective to historical perspectives, a man's perspective and a child's perspective. Breastfeeding in different cultures, breastfeeding from a new mom, breastfeeding from a mom knowing this is her last child to breastfeed, breastfeeding from a grandma, the extended breastfeeder, the pumping breastfeeder, the professional breastfeeding support (LC's, etc.), from different faiths, from the abuse survivor, from a formula feeder, etc. Personal stories, researched information, or essay style, pretty much anything would be appropriate. It can be blog carnival style (link to a blog) or guest post style (posted on TLB blog). Anything is great. I would prefer a new piece to an old one but if you think you have something that would be perfect then please go ahead and submit an older piece. Anyone interested should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to have all the submissions by the 30th.
