Ask a BFing Mum is here! [BFing Mums sign up here- official thread to follow]


Hopefully this will be a good idea.

We have a few people on here who I think are Breastfeeding Champions. They always give fantastic advice, and are brilliant cheerleaders.

So i was thinking maybe have a thread, with a list of people who are willing to be Breastfeeding Champions. Then, if someone is having issues BFing, then can ask to be assigned a BFing Champion who will contact them regularly, and make sure they are ok and if they need anything, offer advice, etc.

What do you think? Sort of partner people up? People who can give help, with people who need help? We could have different categories of champions, like re-lactation, preemies, extended breastfeeding, newborn breastfeeding, etc.

I'll also make a blinkie or signature for the champions, so they can be spotted wherever they post.

I think its a brilliant idea, Mervs mum has been a lifesaver for me on msn and Melbo over texting.

Glad this is going to be popular!

If you want to volunteer to be a BFing Champion then just post and I'll add you to the first post.
