Why not?

Why isn't there an extended breastfeeding moms group? I don't know how to run or start a group and I'm not a great resource but I wish someone else would. Lots of moms seem to get bashed for extended breastfeeding on this site and I think they need a place where they can feel comfortable. Anybody else feel the same way? or anyone willing to start this group?

Why can't they just come to this group?  I've found it very pro extend BFing...

I agree, this group seems to be very pro-extended nursing as is. But I can see why some moms might want a group for that specific cause...

I've probably been spending way too much time in the Newcomers club and seen a lot of bashing. But even in this group, some say it's gross and just not for them. Which I think it's fine that it's not for everyone. But maybe there could be a place where some could live without the, "it's gross and unnecessary" comments.

There use to be some, but I don't know what happen to them. I'm a part of this group.

I was talking about breastfeeding in one of my posts and someone suggested that I join that group, but I found that it didn't exist. I wonder what happened.

I am in a bunch of breastfeeding groups and all of them are VERY supportive of full-term nursing. This group is the biggest and most active.

Two groups to avoid once you've delivered... the newcomers group and your own month group.
