Want to hear me speak about long-term breastfeeding along with 61 other presentations on natural family living from 68 other (amazing) speakers? And want to hear it all for free?
I'm a presenter and happy affiliate of the Nourished Living Summit, which brings together natural health, wellness, and parenting professionals who are dedicated to helping parents care for their family naturally. These experts know that this parenting gig is not easy and as such are equipping you with the information you need to either begin, continue, or expand your journey as a natural-minded parent.
The Nourished Living Summit is a FREE online event
that runs March 24 through April 29.
About the summitIt won't be like those other Summits, the ones where you have 24 hours to listen to 10 hour-long presentations. No - the Nourished Living Summit wants to give you as much information as you can absorb via an improved summit model. A model where you will have time on your side so you can take advantage of all the incredible information these speakers are handing you. The Nourished Living Summit is showcasing 62 presentations divided into 8 thematic tracks including:
- Pre-Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth
- Health and Development for Children Ages 0-18
- Natural Health and Wellness for the Whole Family
- Care and Nurturing For Mothers
- Education for Natural Minded Parents
You will have 48 hours to listen to 3-5 presentations. Each track is divided over the course of two 48-hour periods. Presentations will stream live Monday-Saturday with Sundays off.
You MUST be registered in order to listen to the presentations. You can register on the home page of the official Nourished Living Summit website.

About my presentationYou can hear me speak on April 9 on long-term breastfeeding, the day you can also hear incredible speakers on potty learning, fostering independence, and learning to read.
I was very happy to have a telephone conversation about one of my favorite subjects: breastfeeding! I was even happier to shed some light on the more culturally unique subtopics of long-term breastfeeding (also called extended breastfeeding, full-term breastfeeding, or breastfeeding past infancy) and tandem breastfeeding (nursing more than one child at a time, though not necessarily simultaneously).
- I discuss five years of breastfeeding Mikko, including his gentle weaning, and two and a half years (so far) of breastfeeding Alrik.
- I talk very honestly about my own experiences, challenging as they were, with breastfeeding through pregnancy and tandeming.
- I give pragmatic advice about how to encourage a mutually respectful and beneficial breastfeeding relationship with toddlers on up.
- I'm able to point to some of the research and resources available about the effects and benefits of long-term breastfeeding.
- I touch on topics such as
- health benefits to the mother,
- the safety of breastfeeding through pregnancy,
- legal ramifications of breastfeeding older children,
- anthropological and historical evidence of long-term breastfeeding,
- and more!
