How Did I End Up Here?

By Anonymous

How did I end up here? Sitting a car next to a person who months before told me he loved me and I was his soul mate as we made mad passionate love. That mad passionate love that resulted in a child to be conceived and now I’m hearing the words “Adoption is best for this child” from the man who claimed to love me.

Except as an adoptee myself.. Adoption was never an option. It wasn’t even to be thought about and he knew this. The man that claim [Read more…]

A Review of the Milkies Milk-Saver and Freeze

It’s no secret that a breastfeeding mother truly does cry over spilled milk. I never thought about this as it relates to leaked milk. I remember when I first heard about the idea of collecting the leaked milk directly from the breast to be used later. It’s hard to deny the brilliance. I have teamed up with Fairhaven Health to bring you this personal review. [Read more…]

I’m Planning a Homebirth

I want to begin by saying that this is the hardest blog post I have ever written. I say that in all seriousness after 2 years of blogging about my deepest, darkest secrets. I’ve been staring at it for weeks. Typing, backspacing, retyping. It’s been hard because there is so much to say. I thought about making this a series, but at this point I cannot figure out how to break up this information. [Read more…]

I Don’t Need Your Authority and MommyCon Chicago March 1, 2014

Abby Theuring, The Badass Breastfeeder, speaking at MommyCon

I can’t believe it has only been a year since I made my MommyCon debut! The Badass Breastfeeder has grown by leaps and bounds since the day I hobbled atop shaky legs to the front of a room full of like-minded Mamas to talk about nursing in public. I promised that room full of Moms an army of the world’s most powerful and important people. This army has grown more than 5 fold since that day and we are as serious, passionate and strong as ever.

Clear Things Up Day at The Badass Breastfeeder on Facebook

Today we celebrate Clear Things Up Day here at The Badass Breastfeeder Facebook Page. I will be addressing misinformation about this page all day! Yay!

1. We can support, promote, celebrate and love breastfeeding without bashing formula or formula feeding mothers. As Brad Pitt once said (yes, I am about to quote Brad Pitt) “Why is that whenever I say something good about Angelina it means I am saying something bad about Jennifer?” Good point Brad! We love breastfeeding. That is not a statement that reflects our feelings about formula or formula feeding mothers in the least. We love Moms and we support all Moms while we spread the information that we feel is important. [Read more…]
