So I wrote out our story. And as we all know, it isn't pretty.
But she published it. And after a quick review of the other submissions, I realized that all of them except mine are pro-breastfeeding, "you can do it, sister" type of stories. And honestly, well, I think this kind of thinking is not only somewhat irresponsible, but dangerous as well. Nothing against the other writers, but the thing is, women need to talk about what happens when breast feeding doesn't work out and when to throw in the towel. The uber-cheerleader mentality can be helpful, but again, we are talking about life and death in some cases (not to mention the demonization of formula).
So read it if you get a chance. You can find it at:
And big thanks to Emily for allowing me to guest write.
