Breastfeeding Moms

This group is here to support families that breastfeed. We follow the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and La Leche League International (LLLI). This group is here to promote breastfeeding and support families who choose to breastfeed. Group Guidelines: 1. We do not encourage the use of Formula. Please refrain from recommending the use of formula.* 2. This group does not encourage weaning an infant under 12 months of age for any nonmedical reason. 3. In line with LLLI we do not support or recommend the introduction of solids until around the middle of the first year. 4. Debates about when to wean are discouraged. Any posts that personally attack a member for their weaning choices, be it mother led, child led, or otherwise, will not be tolerated. 5. No posts that violate Circle of Moms No THUMPS guidelines. *Please note: We ask that you not recommend formula because it can cause issues with breastfeeding. Supplementing should be done carefully. Some moms need to or choose to use formula and that choice is respected. We ask that it not be recommended to others because they may not know the issues that can arise from supplementing.
