Militant Breastfeeding Mommas

This community is a place for exclusive/determined breastfeeding moms to find others just like them. We offer support in breastfeeding and breastfeeding only. Advice recommending using formula or weaning before 1 year is not allowed! Nursing mommas who want to rant about the non-nursers, the supplementers, the whiners, the early weaners, the gawkers, and anything and everything else that may oppose/undermine breastfeeding, this is the group for you! Note: Not a place to complain about your nursing experience!!
