Why I’m bittersweet…

The week of June 20-26 is Breastfeeding Awareness Week in Britain.

During this week there will be a Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt.

I’m feeling very bittersweet about it this year.

Last year I was just sad, as I had hoped to be taking part in it with our angel.

The year before I had already failed with J, so was much the same.

Don’t get me wrong, I am very pro-breastfeeding.

It just didn’t work for us, and it made me oh so sad.

I would have loved to take part this year.

Seeing all the posts about it brings me a tinge of sadness as it’s still very fresh in my mind.


I think that the scavenger hunt is a fantastic initiative; helping people, raising awareness, gaining knowledge.

If YOU are breastfeeding, go hunt!

  1. Don't feel bad – I tried it too with each of mine but only managed a week or two. At least we both tried and that is what counts and to be honest – formula is just as good as the real stuff these days!
