#Bfcafe 3/11/10, 10pm EST: Weaning & Nursing Strikes; Earth Mama Angel Baby Giveaway

 We hope you will join us for tonight’s #bfcafe–the fastest growing twitter party where expecting and new mothers can be cheered on, find breastfeeding support, evidence-based information and resources, and be entered to win a hot giveaway!     

When & Where:  Thursday, March 11, 2010 at 10-11 p.m. EST  on Twitter (and every Thursday!) 

How to join the party: Although I use tweetdeck.com for every day, I found that www.tweetgrid.com works best for twitter parties, as it allows you to follow the hosts (@bestforbabes & @zealandsmom) and automatically includes the hashtag #bfcafe.  All you need to join the party is include that hashtag in all your tweets.   

How to enter to win a giveaway:  To win one of the fabulous giveaways, you need to RSVP at this blog:http://zealandsmom.blogspot.com/2010/03/earth-mama-angel-baby-bfcafe-sponsor.html.  

Topic:  Weaning & Nursing Strikes:  What is weaning?  When does it happen?  What is baby-led vs. mother-led weaning?   What is a nursing strike and do babies wean themselves before they are a year old?  What tools and strategies are available to mothers who have to wean unexpectedly?
