Pregnancy.org

We're built By Parents, For Parents™. We've banded together to build a website to educate, empower, and connect ourselves, other parents, and people trying to become parents. We're doing this out of our love for children, and our desire to do our best raising them to become good adults. We believe parenting is a sacred responsibility.

Google Chrome Extension Allowed to Block Facebook Baby Pictures
Google Chrome has extensions for pretty much anything. Their latest allows Facebook to block your baby pictures. I find it hard to believe that every single one of my 700+ Facebook friends doesn't want to enjoy every picture I've ever posted of my babies. Even if they love you, they may not love all your pictures.

How Long Did You Breastfeed? Post Your Total (WBW Event!)
World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is here August 1st - August 7th! This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the WBW event. Pregnancy.org 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 clicking "show conversation" and leave your response as a comment!

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!

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 Pregnancy.org Community has spent breastfeeding and announce it here and throughout the site! Don't miss a beat! Stay on top of the action by clicking the star by our logo above left and "friend" us! Still need help? Visit our Welcome/Help Center for assistance.
