My Child Magazine

Relatively new, but terrifically fabulous new Aussie parenting magazine, My Child ran a whole column on Breastfeeders Anonymous in its Summer issue (out now)! Below is the article, but if it's too small to read you'll just have to go out and buy My Child (check out their website anyway at

Another boost for IQ!

Despite having my nose to the grindstone this month, writing for National Novel Writing Month, I'm blessed to have people in my life who keep their eyes and ears open for news about breastfeeding. And this week, the news has been flowing fast and furious.

My boss, Debbie, the librarian where I do the Saturday shift, sent me a link about how new research has confirmed previous thoughts on Breastfeeding increasing IQ. If you'd like to have a read, go to:,21598,22712138-948,00.html

And, bless my gorgeous grandma, aside from reading my book in its entirety (60 years post her own experiences of breastfeeding), she rang today from her nursing home to tell me she'd seen something about breastfeeding on the four o'clock news. She's talking about the fabulous launch of Unicef's Breastfeeding Manifesto (

This new manifesto sets out seven key objectives to improve infant feeding practice and to empower women to breastfeed for as long as they choose. Now that's gotta be a good thing!

Book Shops

Thanks for all those who continue to read my blog despite regular updates - life is mad but I love seeing a comment.

My life is only about to get more crazy as I've taken on the challenge to do National Novel Writing Month this month ( and therefore unless there is mindblowing book news or someone (hint hint) sends breastfeeding stories or photos, I won't be updating much. Although saying that, I have a few guest bloggers lined up, which will hopefully make an appearance soon.

In the meantime, Ï'm excited to say that many bookshops have started ordering Breastfeeders Anonymous from my distributor, so if you've been holding off for the book in bookshops (down under that is) then you should be able to get one soon. If you want to order from a bookshop that doesn't have it in stock, tell them that Dennis Jones and Associates is the distributer.

I recently got such an uplifting email from a reader and retailer of Breastfeeders Anonyous. Kelly's shipment of the books arrived last week and here's what she had to say:

Thanks for the books - they arrived yesterday. I have to say I have already finished reading and I loved it! I'm so glad to be able to offer this to my customers as it really is a must read. I wish this book had been around when I was first starting out - it is so practical and tells you all the important stuff that no one ever does. I paticularly liked the A-Z of breastfeeding with a toddler. So very true. I also found the myths section fantastic and particularly about losing weight when feeding. Unfortunately I was one of those women who fell into the third category of losing extreme amounts of weight so it was great to know I'm not alone. I almost want a third just so I can use all this new info!

Mother and Baby Mag!

Breastfeeders Anonymous features in the latest Mother and Baby Magazine in Australia.
Sorry the scanned image isn't that fantastic, so here's what they had to say:

Written by a mum with a passion for breastfeeding, this book aims to be a support for any mums facing the highs - and sometimes lows - of breastfeeding. It includes answers to many frequently asked questions and busts the breastfeeding myths you're sure to encounter.
