About The Carnival

The Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival was created three years ago as a countdown to the first day of the Breastfeeding Cafe in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2013, it is running from July 22nd until August 4th. The topic is different every day. Here is the list of the 2013 Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival topics:

Monday, July 22nd – Online lifelines: which sites or forums did you go to for help and support?

Tuesday, July 23rd – Breastfeeding myths: what’s the biggest breastfeeding myth in your opinion? Help us dispel it!

Wednesday, July 24th – Wordless Wednesday-Breastfeeding Photos: share pictures of you and your nursing(s)!

Thursday, July 25th – Breastfeeding in special circumstances: if you ever breastfed through an auto-immune disease, had to do an elimination diet, breastfed a baby with special needs, etc. Anything out of the realm of “normal” goes here!

Friday, July 26th – Helping other moms succeed: have you helped any other moms with their breastfeeding journey?

Saturday, July 27th – Your go-to resource: what person, book, group, etc. was your number one place to go to for help?

Sunday, July 28th – Physical support: tell us what is your favorite nursing wear and why!

Monday, July 29th – Breastfeeding multiples: twins (or more!), tandem nursing singletons, even nursing more than one child through your breastfeeding years. Tell us about your experience.

Tuesday, July 30th – How your partner helped/hindered: was your partner a huge support or did they take a bit to get used to nursing? If you are a single parent, has anyone else in your family helped or hindered your breastfeeding efforts?

Wednesday, July 31st – Wordless Wednesday-Babywearing Photos: do you babywear? Show us! Bonus points if you’re nursing and babywearing!

Thursday, August 1st – Breastfeeding in public: do you have any tips or tricks? Why is it important to you? Has anyone ever confronted you about breastfeeding in public?

Friday, August 2nd – Your tips to succeed: what do you wish you would have known or were happy that you knew to help you succeed with breastfeeding?

Saturday, August 3rd – Your most unlikely support: was there someone in your life that you expected to give you grief about nursing, but instead was your biggest fan?

Sunday, August 4th – Tell us your success story! Success really is within reach! Any breastfeeding success, no matter how small, is still a breastfeeding success. Share your story!

We encourage bloggers to blog (inside and outside of our state!) on as many topics as they are able (all if you can!) and we need a guest blogger on our website for each day (Currently full! Thanks for your support!). Post links must be submitted to Claire at clindstrom2 {at} gmail {dot} com by 12:00PM Mountain Standard Time the day of that topic. If you want more information or would like to be added to our email list (used for future years too!), please email Claire. Happy posting!
