Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default got a reply from local councillor about breastfeeding law...

Post by Helen on Mon Jul 14, 2008 10:52 pm

I was reading about the breastfeeding picnic on

http://one-of-those-women.blogspot.com/2008/06/protect-my-baby-protect-me.html

and at the bottom of the page it says to contact MP to tell them about the need for a breastfeeding law to protect all mummies and babies
It gives you the following link:

http://www.writetothem.com/

Anyway you can put your postcode, write a message and send to all local councillors/MPs etc. So i sent a message to all 3 of my local councillors and the MP.

It was 2 week ago now and not 1 word from any of them until today when i got an email back...

Dear Mrs Walker, I have just returned from being out of the country, so I apologise for the delay in responding, if you would like me to call in on you and discuss the issue, I will gladly do so at your convenience
Kind regards ... Colin

Colin Auty
BNP Councillor
Dewsbury East Ward

:ashamed!: I'm scared i dont want him coming to see me! lol.

OMG I hate all that the BNP party stands for i dont even no why i let the message get sent to him as well as 2 labour councillors!

Cant believe he's the only one to reply! Evil or Very Mad

what a coincidence - also got a message from a labour councillor today! I am probably just gullible but i liked that he says he agrees with me lol

Dear Helen
thanks for your e-mail, which I will pas son to our M P if you agree, on a personal note I agree with you, how long a mum wishes to continue breast feeding is surely up to her, but as for banning this very natural occurrence is I agree a nonsense......Eric

As for the BNP, Katie they are not nice people. When i went to university it was all for free speech but banned the BNP from campaigning and stuff because its a horrible racist party. I dont no how they have been voted in to be coucillor in this area! Evil or Very Mad
