Hi Mothergoose,
Perhaps you might like to consider joining ABA. Membership helps ABA t continue to provide services like this forum and the helpline and when you join you get a free breastfeeding book and a bimonthly magazine.

Wow - what a great post to read. Amazing what a difference 24 hours and getting some good support and advice can make! Good on you for getting as far as you have. Hope your breastfeeding journey quickly becomes a joy to both of you now that some of the medical things are resolving.

Well done (and come to a meeting if you haven't already been!)

Such wonderful news for you and your bub - good on you for seeking out the information you needed to make an informed decision. :)

And definitely stick around the forum! - I've found it's nice to be surrounded by a bfing cheer squad at different, challenging moments in our bf relationship. So welcome, mothergoose! :D (and I can highly recommend ABA membership, too - Essence mag is great, and the discounts and perks are fantastic, too! :))

Thank you again to all who contributed to my thread. You'll be pleased to know that all is well, apart from some foul smelling nappies! I do hope this is normal. I'm not concerned as all is well otherwise. I realise it's outside of their scope, but wouldn't it be great if Mothersafe could also advise possible side effects like this? I can see people hearing things are safe, then seeing that they are having some obvious impact (my case for example) and panicking.

I will certainly be joining when the budget will allow. Unfortunately with one income I'm having to financially plan more than usual. Thanks for that suggestion, though. I read up on it last night.

I have another question in relation to local ABA groups - how does one go about finding them? I've searched online and in the phone book and can't find one. Is it possible there isn't one within a 200km radius? I'm reluctant to post my town on a public forum - bit wary of cyberspace so please bear with me. If someone could point me in the direction of a groups directory, I'd be very appreciative.
