Clicking my way to be a better mom: The Kelly Mom
KellyMom: My favorite online resource for breastfeeding advice.
Look at this sweet photo of my son and I taken just a few hours after he was born. I was totally in love… And–like all first time mommas–I was at the beginning of a very steep learning curve!
I have used the internet tirelessly for help in knowing how to care for my precious baby, as well as how to understand the changes within my own body, both during pregnancy and in the first weeks post-partum. Not only have I found practical advice, but also lots of encouragement as I’ve begun to navigate the (often confusing) realm of motherhood.
In light of that I wanted to share with you my favorite breastfeeding resource site: The Kelly Mom.
The Kelly Mom is a site authored by a mom of three kids who follows the Attachment Parenting (AP) philosophy advocated by Dr. Sears. This is the best site I’ve found for information on the ins and outs of breastfeeding.
She has taken the time and researched all the information from the top organizations such as La Leche League, World Health Organization, American Paediatrics Association, etc. and has written on everything you can possibly imagine in relation to breastfeeding.
Whether you are an AP-er or not, this website is an invaluable resource.
First of all, it’s clear, easy to navigate, very professional, and (from what I can tell) sound in its documentation. In addition to all things surrounding breastfeeding, Kelly Mom also writes on other parenting and life-with-baby topics. But since I haven’t read much of those other areas in her site I will limit my comments to the information on breastfeeding.
The Kelly Mom’s articles on breastfeeding are wonderful! I’ve used her site for finding advice on things such as getting rid of a plugged duct, tips on pumping, identifying foods to eat for increasing supply, what to do when baby fusses at the breast, how to handle a distracted eater, introducing bottle-feeding, and many other breastfeeding topics.
If you’re a breastfeeding mom (or mom-to-be), I would highly recommend that you bookmark Kelly Mom as a resource go-to!
