Welcome Washington Post Readers

Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.

For regular Lactivist readers, there's a very interesting article today in the Washington Post that examines the current trend toward milk banking, cross-nursing, casual sharing and even paid wet nursing. I spoke with the author a week or two ago and I've got to say that I'm very impressed with the article she put together. It's a very even handed and accurate look at what's going on. If you haven't read it yet, take a few minutes to go do so.

If you've found your way here for the first time from the Washington Post...Welcome! I hope you'll stick around and check things out.

A few links here on the site that might interest you...

1.) Find out how and why the Lactivist got started

2.) Learn about our current fundraiser for the Mother's Milk Bank of Ohio (yes the post says December, but we've extended it into January)

3.) Learn more about how you can become a milk donor.

4.) Wondering how I came up with all that extra milk? (27 donated gallons actually) Read about my experience with my first daughter and exclusively pumping.

5.) For you sentimental baby types...read the birth story of my second child...the one who actually figured out how to nurse. ;)
