Sunday Surf: Less-medicated birth, public feeding, & adventurous living

Welcome to the Sunday Surf! Here are some of the best links I've read this past week.

With skipping last week, I have so many links to share. Let's get to it!

  • "Inquisition Monday" from the bee in your bonnet: On bodily autonomy and the perception of "no rules."
  • "A Moment of Terminology" from Domestic Chaos: Something to think about: What does "natural" mean in the context of childbirth, and what term might be more appropriate? You can read my comment in the comments section as well, if you're interested.
    for son and daughter-in-law greeting card for Valentine's Day with daughter in quotes This is the type of card I usually get — only, with our names right. And, yes, she does send us Valentine's cards.
  • "Happy Valentine’s Day to my son…and the harlot with whom he’s living in sin." from Ha! I always get cards from my mother-in-law addressed "To a Dear Son and 'Daughter.'" I don't know how she always finds them, but she does. I know she doesn't even mean it as a slight, because she's told me frequently her preferred term for daughter-in-law is "daughter-in-love." Awww.
  • "Nursing Necklace" from Mommying My Way: Another adorable nursing necklace for an adorable baby!
  • "Pumping in public?" from The Milk Mama: What are your thoughts on pumping in public as opposed to nursing in public? Read the comments for some enlightening responses.
  • "Answering Objections to Nursing in Public" navy-pier-chicago-4mfrom Nursing Freedom: I already mentioned this, but I'll mention it again: Here's a guest post of mine up at Nursing Freedom filled with funny retorts to NIP criticism. Fortunately, I haven't actually had to use any of them! How about you?

You can find more shared items during the week at my public Google Reader recommendations feed.

Check out Authentic Parenting, Baby Dust Diaries, Navelgazing, Momma Jorje, Enjoy Birth, A Domesticated Woman's Adventures (various), Kelly Hogaboom (Fridays), The Parent Vortex, Hippie Housewife (Saturdays), Multiple Musings, Motherhood Moments, Mama and Baby Love, and A Little Bit of All of It for more Sunday Surfing! (If you also participate in a regular link list, whether on Sunday or not, let me know and I'll add your link.)

Feel free to add your recommendations in the comments. Happy reading!

I love the links about gender and children. I checked those out, and from the links in them have a small reading list to get through and think about now! I'm 29 weeks along with my 1st and thinking a lot about gender these days, so those were very timely for me. Thanks!

Thank you for mentioning my Haley post. ((hugs))

And big sighs about Mothering discontinuing their magazine. It's what brought me into the world of crunchy. *sniff*
