Day 22 & Day 23 of the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt - Breastfeeding Beyond the First Month

Here is the round up for Days 22 and 23 of the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt and we have moved into the fourth and final week  with a new theme which is - Breastfeeding Beyond the First Month.

I chose "beyond the first month" because for everyone extended breastfeeding means different things and achieving 1 month can be just as much a goal for one Mum as achieving 4 years for another.  There is a lot of support that can be found in the community, health profession and family for breastfeeding a newborn, but we sometimes forget that questions can pop up at any time.  Balancing breastfeeding and working or breastfeeding and a toddler and a newborn, or breastfeeding and weaning onto solids have their own challenges and in some cases are not spoken about very often.  I read in a post from the Analytical Armadillo yesterday that 95% of infants receive formula before they are 6 months old which means that I am in the minority and cannot necessarily ask questions to anyone.  Here are the first "clues" for todays logos, don't forget to enter the grand prize at the end of each post.
