Farewell to the Blog Breastfeeding 123

Bookmark and Share

For nearly 4 years I’ve gotten to know Angela at Breastfeeding 123. Angela ran an amazing blog that was informative and reassuring for thousands of breastfeeding moms and their partners. She is a tireless blogger, an amazing advocate for moms and kids, and a kind and generous blogging friend.
Unfortunately Angela just found out that the parent company for her blog, B5 Media, is shutting down her blog along with some of its other sites. Angela didn’t have a chance to do a good bye post, so I’m giving up my site to her here today. Here’s what she has to say:

Last Friday without warning the blog network that owns Breastfeeding 1-2-3 terminated my contract along with that of every other blogger that was under contract. I am sad to have my relationship with the blog and its faithful readers end that way, without even a chance to say goodbye. Thanks to [Andi of Mama Knows Breast / Tanya of the Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog] I am getting this chance.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing for Breastfeeding 1-2-3 over the last three-and-a-half years. As my time as a breastfeeding blogger comes to a close and I move on to other endeavors, I just wanted to say goodbye and thank you for the support you have shown me and other breastfeeding mothers! Best wishes, Angela White”
Thanks again,

Andi, thank you so much for the kind words and for the opportunity to say goodbye to the great community of readers of Breastfeeding 1-2-3 and Mama Knows Breast.

So sorry, Angela, and thank you! Hope to see you blogging again someplace else very soon.

Oh, no! I’m so sad. Are you going to launch your own blog, Angela?

I was so sad to hear about this. I love Angela, and I hope that something even better lies in store for her!

Thanks for posting this. I was really confused today when my google reader started sending me some really random posts from Breastfeeding 1-2-3, about pots and tractors and television shows. Now I know. Sorry to loose a fun and informative blog.

I was wondering what happened – all of a sudden the posts were just TERRIBLE. I hope Angela will blog again as I always enjoyed what she had to say.

Oh my word! That is just wrong! I loved your blog and now I know what happened! I think your information was so helpful to me and so many other moms in rough times, and I really want to keep updated on your family! Please launch your own blog! But how will I know? Email me?

I googled “how to sell my breast milk” as was directed here. Do you know how I might be able to sell my breast milk on line? I have researched it in my state and it is legal… but it seems that it’s difficult to do online. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for writing in. In general, selling breast milk is not recommended. Instead, some people choose to donate their excess milk to a human milk bank. You can locate a milk bank near you through the Human Milk Banking Association of North America. The milk banks carefully screen and test all donated milk (the same idea as with donor blood) to make sure that it is safe for consumption.
