Today I am going to be busy preparing for a presentation I am giving with another person at tomorrow's Kansas La Leche League conference on the subject of breastfeeding a baby with special needs. I am so delighted to have this opportunity to give information to people in the lactation field about something I am so passionate about. Since I can't give my presentation to everyone that might need it, I thought I'd put just a few of my favorite internet links about the subject here so others can find some help on their own. I hope you enjoy reading the links and feel inspired! Tomorrow's post will be a related personal story that has been in the drafts folder for a long time.
Have a wonderfuLLL weekend!
