Nourished Living Summit: Hear me speak on long-term breastfeeding!

Hobo Mama wants you to know she's a professional blogger! Look at how professional she's being!

Nourished Living Summit: Hear me speak on long-term breastfeeding! == Hobo MamaWant 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 summit

It 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
  • Breastfeeding
  • 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 presentation

You 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).

Nourished Living Summit: Hear me speak on long-term breastfeeding! == Hobo Mama

  • 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!
So join me over at the Nourished Living Summit starting now and especially on April 9 — I look forward to hearing what you think!

Once you register with an email address, you'll receive an email every two days with the next speaker presentations available, and you'll have 48 hours to listen on your own schedule. After the presentations air live, there will be an option to purchase lifetime access to the presentations, but don't delay while it's still free!

What are you waiting for? Go register now for the Nourished Living Summit!


And this has nothing to do with anything, but: It's the LAST DAY for the the NPN Learning Through Play giveaway extravaganza! Enter to win a Kinderfeets balance bike or one of eight other fun & educational prizes, from online piano lessons to OgoBILD toys to a My Chickadee children's doll carrier and more!

Thanks Lauren

I would love to listen to your talk. I am also still breastfeeding an over five year old. Very little, and not every day, but when she asks for it! :D
