I'm a big fan of breastfeeding.
I breastfed Roo for 22 months, loving the results and the closeness and how we bonded together because of it. So when I heard about the Medela Mom Mavens, I quickly googled it and signed up. I'm happy to announce: they liked me!
So I'm a proud Medela Mom Maven breastfeeding ambassador!
What is a Medela Mom Maven you ask?
They are mothers like me and you. Medela Mom Mavens are both fresh out of the gate Mommys and experienced pros that know how to get a kid to sleep through the night. A Medela Mom Maven is a Mommy that is constantly sharing information, opinions and ideas on parenting and everything that comes with it. Medela Mom Mavens are are Mommies that work hard to provide their babies the very best by breastfeeding.
A little background on Medela from their website: Olle Larsson founded Medela in 1961 in Zug, Switzerland, and the company continues to grow under the ownership of the Larsson family. For nearly 30 years Medela’s U.S. presence, McHenry, Ill.-based Medela, Inc., has supported moms’ and babies’ health through the live-giving benefits of breastmilk. To fulfill its mission, Medela works to provide innovative products, education and support to millions of breastfeeding and breastpumping mothers.
And did you know that November is National Prematurity Awareness Month?
To honor it, Medela is hosting a virtual Mothers' Milk contest. The goal is to help spread the word about how breast milk can help protect premature infants from very serious health complications.

From time to time I'll be posting about breastfeeding, especially when we embark on that journey with the second baby. If you are interested in becoming a Medela Mom Maven, click on this link to take a survey to see if you match up with Medela's mission.
