Hi hope you are all well!

So we have a bit of a problem, we only have 15 members which is really not enough to generate conversation, friendly debate and diverse advice.

One of the group's members suggested to me that it may be due to the fact that it doesn't come up in a search for breastfeeding or feeding of any type where as the Breastfeeding Moms group does, most likely due to the amount of members it has. Not many people search for Freedom on this site!

So in an effort to combat that and get more members into this group I would like to invite you to put forth suggestions for a new name for our group, keeping in mind our principals for the group. It was originally formed as response to the rigid attitude of Breastfeeding Moms, as a way of bringing about tolerance, understanding and compassion to all mothers. no matter their choices in feeding. I have always maintained the "Breast is best" theory, but I believe that it doesn't work for everyone all of the time.

This is your opportunity to have an influence in the future of our group and help decide the direction you would like it to take. If you could have your ideas of names and what this group should be about (ie, should it be about breastfeeding, formula feeding, feeding in general? I would prefer to be able to discuss both forms of feeding openly and without fear of retribution) to me by the 21st of November (next Saturday).

This is OUR group and I would love for everyone to be able to have a huge input in the ay you would like it run. As I said in the outline, the only thing we won't tolerate is intolerance!

Ok so I'm going to make a decision here and change the name to "Feeding Support and Guidance". Hope it suits everyone and that everyone is happy with it. Also hopes it attracts some new members!

I really like the Bottles, Breast and More one Kristin, I think that really fits our structure. I also like Supportive Feeding Mums, that shows that we support all feeding choices. Anyone like "Feeding Your Baby: Support and Guidance"?

Ok so what about something that covers our general issues with motherhood? Like "Mother's Choices" or "Infant Feeding and Other Motherhood Issues"? I don't know if someone can phrase that better maybe? I know I said today would be the day for the names to come in but I'll extend it til we find the right one.

i think the feeding part is good but personally anything. I find myself coming on here because i dont have many moms that i can talk to and share stories with. its nice just to have a variety of things. there are so many bumps in the road with motherhood. like yesterday i was stressed cause my little one is getting her first tooth and all she wants is to be held right now and my husband was being a jackass and not helping. i think men have no idea sometimes how hard it is to be home with the kids. he works about 60 hours a week which is alot. but i juggle 2 part time jobs and the kids pretty much full time. I think being able to relate to other moms helps so much!

I would like to think this group could be about infant feeding in general. Breastfeeding, formula, introducing solids and all the other things this encompasses. What do you think?

I think your are right, Kerry, something along the lines of Feeding Choices? Maybe someone else can be a bit more creative than me! lol. I just want it to reflect our diversity. And don't forget that you can also let me know your ideas for the direction this group should take.

I will have a think about it but so far I think the name needs to have the word "feeding" in it because when you type this into the 'search groups' tool it shows breastfeeding groups as well as formula feeding groups.
