October Carnival of Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding & Birth

The Carnival of Breastfeeding is back! We took a short break to rejuvenate and work on other projects (and one of us even birthed a baby!) but we're ready to get the Carnival ball rolling again.  Our theme for October is the birth and breastfeeding continuum. Inspired by this wonderful podcast with Linda Smith on how the most common birth practices can affect breastfeeding, we wanted to explore if you felt your breastfeeding relationship was impacted by your birth. Did an epidural leave you with a baby who seemed too sleepy to nurse? Did your midwife make sure your baby was kept skin-to-skin and he nursed like a champ? Share your experiences with us for the October Carnival!

Submissions are due by October 18th and the Carnival will go live on October 25th. We're doing things slightly different this time, so please fill out our spreadsheet in order to submit your post. As always, we're looking for posts that are:

- Well-written and grammatically correct

- Thoughtful and directly on point for the carnival subject

- Submitted by blogs that pertain to subjects of interest to our readers (breastfeeding, parenting, etc.)

If your post is selected for inclusion, you will be asked on the day of the carnival to edit your post to link back to each of the other participants in the carnival. Examples of past carnivals can be found here.

If you are participating, you may also want to add our Carnival of Breastfeeding button to your sidebar!
