I just wanted to share this lovely and intelligent response from Chaley Scott regarding the article in the Daily Mail today ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2146870/Breastfeed-year-old-Thats-just-selfish-wrong.html) written by a medical doctor (can you believe it?) on extended breastfeeding. 

I have a lot more to say about breastfeeding, but that is for another time!  Personally, I fed my first sweet babe until 20 months and then gave in to the pressure to stop.  At present I am still breastfeeding my second lovely babe and she will be three in September! 

Chaley Scott notes that she finds it “scary that our medical profession are so ill-informed” (specifically regarding breastfeeding). I happen to agree, and on far more than just breastfeeding issues! (don’t even get me started on nutrition!)

Have a read and let me know what you think.

Welcome to the blog!

Welcome to adventures in family health! After 12 years in a natural health practice, and many more as someone who uses natural approaches in my own life, I thought it would be interesting to share some of my experiences and the experiences of the people I see.  Having children changes your perspective on a lot of things, suddenly you are making lifetime decisions for another person, someone who is completely dependent on you. Things that may have never tweaked your radar are suddenly becoming issues you need to research or become much more intimately aware of, and learn how to deal with.  There are some great sites and blogs online, that I have come across in my own trawling for help and ideas that I hope to share with you as well.  I would love this to be a site for discussion and sharing. So feel free to comment and dive right in!
