With the success of the first Milk Mama Diaries Carnival, co-host Mec and I plan to continue it until the end of the year. The carnival enabled both of us to meet and learn about the experiences of other breastfeeding moms. We both wanted to make it a monthly carnival but realistically, we didn’t think we could do a monthly thing.  So we decided to do it every other month.  We’ve already come up with themes but haven’t finalized the submission deadlines and carnival dates.  Here’s a quick run-down of the themes planned for the year. 


May – Mommy’s Breastfeeding Top 5 (be it top 10 benefits, myths, tips, products, challenges, etc.)

July – Nutrition Month and Breastfeeding
August – Breastfeeding Month – Talk to Me! Breastfeeding a 3D Experience
October – Breastfeeding How to’s
December – ???

No theme for December yet – suggestions are welcome.  We will be posting instructions for each theme at the start of the carnival month.


*Update 6 April 2011.  Just got word from Kate – theme for this year’s nutrition month is just perfect – “Isulong ang BREASTFEEDING – Tama, Sapat at Eksklusibo” – in support of the launch of Breastfeeding TSEK.

Meanwhile, I’ll be going on a 3-week vacation beginning mid-April and I’m not sure if I will have internet connection.  In my Facebook page, I asked for guest posts to help me keep this blog up during my vacation ๐Ÿ™‚  There have been several people who have submitted their posts so don’t be surprised if you will be seeing guest bloggers in this blog for the coming weeks.  

If you’re interested to guest post, you’re welcome to submit a post by contacting me through Facebook, Twitter or via email.  Since I will be posting on my blog, I do reserve the right to edit  the post or refuse to something that is contrary to my beliefs or ideals or post a disclaimer.  You need not write about a breastfeeding topic but can write about parenting, eco-living, WAHM-SAHM-WOHM challenges or other topics related to the main theme of the blog.   Please be mindful though of the blog readers – I will not post submissions which disrespect other people’s choices.   You also don’t need to have your own blog.  I do prefer that the post be original – but if it’s not, I will accept reprinted posts as long as it is at least 60 days since it was last posted.  Finally, copyright belongs to YOU, the author, but I ask that you don’t re-post on your blog until after 60 days when I post it in this blog.

I will email you when I plan to post your submission (thanks to scheduled posting!) and link to your blog or Facebook page.  Please don’t forget to write a short description about YOU which I will include in the post.  If you have questions, feel free to contact me.
