We have a WINNER!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter the competition to WIN A COPY of Breastfeeders Anonymous.

I think the genuine consensus is that one of the best things about breastfeeding is the amazing opportunity it gives to bond with your baby. Not surprisingly it was hard to choose a winner but in the end, I had to go with Oscar’s Mum who posted this gorgeous poem:

With their mouth open wide;
they begin to dive;
straight for that breast;
there's no stopping their quest.

Their aim is always quite precise;
their mouth on the nipple like a vice;
sucking ferociously, don't distract;
if you want your nipple left intact!

The time comes and off they fall;
across your lap they do sprawl;
they look up at you with a drunky smile;
and i makes breastfeeding so worthwhile!!

Oscar’s Mum can you please email me at with your address and full name, so that I can send you your prize.

I agreed with all answers, but here’s a few that really made me nod!

That ferocious suckling when first attached, slowing down to a contented suckle when the edge was off their hunger. Jakaluma.

I especially love the "drunk" look once they have completed a feed and dozed on it also. Maria.

Oh, and the poos, breastfed baby poos are so much easier on the nose than toddler poos. Caitlyn.

The second is when I'm feeding and I glance at my husband and I find he's sitting watching us and going "awwwwww". A lovely family moment. Lucy.

I’m really loving blogging about breastfeeding and ‘meeting’ more breastfeeders or people that want to breastfeed and have decided that I want to continue this blog long after the launch month is up.

I’m hoping to make Breastfeeders Anonymous Online a place where breastfeeders (and those want to) can come to share stories, learn about new breastfeeding products and find up to date news/research about breastfeeding. If you have any more ideas about how to make this blog better for readers, please leave a comment.

If you have a story or photo you’d like to share or are the creator of a breastfeeding related product, I’d love to have you as a guest blogger – please email me at Even photos that are a little left of the middle, such as this gorgeous one of a dog breastfeeding kittens are welcome - anything that shows the specialness of breastfeeding...

‘Til next time,

Hurray for Oscar's mum. I liked her poem as well.

I was feeding Isla at the same time as writing the poem and well I trying to not to get my nipple bitten off and that's when I thought I should write about what was happening right there and then ;-)
