I'm turning into a boob nazi!

I just defended breastfeeding on a Bones fan board, of all places.

A post quoted Hart Hanson (the showrunner) as not wanting to divulge whether Dr Brennan would breastfeed. I said, of course she will, she'll do whatever the scientific evidence supports, right?

And someone actually replied saying there isn't clear evidence in support of breastfeeding. What?

Luckily, someone who's actually studied it as part of her PhD thesis spoke up before I even could. Which is nice of her; I actually try to avoid arguing online about the topics I'm a certified expert in, but that's another story.

Yet another mommy blog

Look, I know the world doesn't need another mommy blog. It didn't need another food blog or gadget blog, but I have those, too. I just like to ramble, and right now I spend all day with a newborn on my boob and an iPad in my hand.

As the title says, I don't consider myself crunchy, but a lot of my parenting decisions so far would be classified as such. I hope that maybe this blog will help other mothers who don't consider themselves crunchy or hippies or whatever to realize that you can have a natural birth, breastfeed, cloth diaper, parent however you want - without the label.
