How Long Did You Breastfeed! Post Your Total (WBW Event!)

World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is here again and is ready to celebrate -- with YOU!

World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is here August 1st - August 7th! This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the WBW event. is proud to continue our efforts to provide our members and our viewing audience with resources, support,and encouragement needed throughout their breastfeeding relationship with their baby!

One of our favorite activities throughout this week-long celebration is to celebrate the breastfeeding efforts of our members -- both individually *and* as a community!
We invite you to join in by visiting our [SIZE=3] Page
, locate this post, click "Show Conversation", and post your totals in the comments!

(**PLEASE NOTE**: You may have to scroll down our wall or page over if later in the week!)[/SIZE]

We need EVERYONE that has even attempted breastfeeding to join in! Add your stats for the number of days, months, or YEARS that you have breastfed your little one. No amount is too small to be included! Have more than one child? You can list them all! Be sure to help us spread the word! Invite your family and friends onsite, via email, on Facebook, and more to join the site and add to the conversation. The more, the better to celebrate! We are hosting the event on our page to have a central spot for members throughout the site -- forums, calendar / charting users, content visitors, mobile app users, Facebook and Twitter friends, and more -- to unite and take part!

No need to do the math. Just post the time you have spent (either currently or years ago!) breastfeeding! At the end of the week, we will tally all of the posts and announce the total amount of years, months, and days that our Community has spent breastfeeding and announce it on our wall and throughout the site!

Ready to participate? Visit our Page Now!! Remember to "friend" us while you are there by clicking the star!

I can't seem to figure out how to post there, I can see others' comments but there's no place to post my own. What happened to putting a thread on the Breastfeeding Board like we've always done?

You have to be logged into the site and view the comments and then write one of your own. Kind of an odd way of doing it. I'm disappointed there wasn't a thread on the BFing board. That board is DEAD lately and I was hoping this would help spur interest. It seems I'm mostly talking to myself over there these days.

I did now! That's ridiculous to have to log in again there when you're already logged onto the site. But at least my nearly seven years will be counted now! Blum 3
