The year 2010 was a really weird and busy time for me and many of my friends (and OMG, where did that decade go?). And it seems that breastfeeding was one of the top buzz words of the year. The topic caused quite a stir here at The Stir.  

There were some crazy revelations, hilarious conclusions and bloopers, as well as some sad misunderstandings and great advances.

One thing is for sure though, we sure talked about breastfeeding A LOT! Check out some of the most buzzed about breastfeeding topics of last year.

  • Many of us decided that we wanted this awesome breastfeeding doll, for ourselves. It gives birth -- placenta included!
  • As if flying with a child wasn't hard enough, moms took another hit in this arena. Breastfeeding moms have one heck of a time getting past the TSA or on planes, with their baby or with breast milk for the baby at home.
  • The CDC finally admits it's growth charts are based off formula-fed babies and that using them on breastfed babies is inaccurate, and should no longer be used.

 

Holy cow! Who knew there was so much to say about breastfeeding?

What was your favorite story, or was it one that I missed?
