I was reading Ruth’s La Leche League of Wisconsin newsletters from the 1960’s and found some gems. Here’s one of them:
Our society is becoming so efficient, we’re so organized… and our living so fast that the whole idea of what mothering is all about is sort of really being lost…It is so important that mothers understand how important they are… What you are doing through La Leche in your examples as mothers is enormously important in the world today… In La Leche you find mothers who aren’t too busy”
– Wisconsin La Leche League News January-February 1969
I don’t think anything has changed in 40 years — we still need to find the time to not be too busy to mother our babies. Breastfeeding is all about being there for our little ones.
