That's right - the original Yummy Mummy of the Yummy Mummy's Breastfeeding Blog (that's me) is back after a long ol' break. I had planned to pass the blog over for a while, but that didn't really work out. So instead I return in a blaze of glory!! (Or something like that...)
Firstly, an update on me, since I do love talking about myself...
But alas, I do not bring you any baby news of my own - Pearl is still my one and only. My husband and I have thought of having more children, but on the moment that's on hold for career reasons.
So why, I hear you ask, why the GLORIOUS return to the breastfeeding blog if you don't have any children to breastfeed? And the answer is simple... siblings! My sister, Gemma, has two children - Euan, aged 3, and Elijah, aged 6 months. Gemma has asked if she can write for the blog and of course, I said yes. She is eager to chronicle her adventure just as I have chronicled mine.

And if that wasn't enough (am I starting to sound like a bad advert...?) I also have a very good friend who has some booby stories to share, stories that I know will provide both inspiration and comfort to mothers who have struggled to breastfeed.
So it seems that I will be heading up a team of Yummy Mummies for now, and hey, if you have any pictures or stories to share, I am always eager to hear them. The mission remains the same - to normalise breastfeeding by putting it out there in the public sphere (and not hiding away in a corner like we should be ashamed of something, thank you very much Mr Nigel Farage), to help its acceptability and inspire mothers to do what they need to do for their children without fear of retribution by a condemning, judgemental public.
You can still email me at email@example.com (sorry to all those whose emails I didn't respond to while I was gone...) and I have a new Facebook page here. Go go like!
Glad to be back!
