Tuesday, November 20, 2007One of my readers emailed this morning to point me to a discussion forum that's talking about me and my post about weaning Emmitt.
The majority of them are not at all happy with me. Quite a few have declared you can't be a lactivist unless you practice child-led-weaning.
It's an interesting read. I responded at the forum, so no sense for a big long post here.
Curious to hear your thoughts.
I'm most curious to hear what YOU personally define as a Lactivist. What are the criteria? What disqualifies you?
"I believe anyone who believes in, supports and promotes breastfeeding and the value it provides to mother and child is a Lactivist."
That's all the qualifiers I have. I don't care if you're a man or a woman, breastfed for a day or eight years. If you're out there doing what you can to do help make sure more women have the means to breastfeed, you're a lactivist in my book.
