Thursday, July 25th - Breastfeeding in special circumstances: if you ever breastfed through an auto-immune disease, had to do an elimination diet, breastfed a baby with special needs, etc. Anything out of the realm of “normal” goes here!

Well, unfortunately (or actually, really fortunately), I don't have any good personal experience with any of these special this post is mostly to direct you to the other awesome posts on this topic today (at the bottom).

I do have to say, though, while I haven't experienced these situations myself, I have known AMAZING mommas who have breastfed through severe allergies (with diet restriction), tongue-tie/lip-tie, thrush, illness, and even a wonderful mom who re-lactated after she had to wean due to a health problem. So, if you are struggling with a special circumstance, go connect with other moms who have successfully made it through your challenge. You can do it, momma! :-)

Here are more post by the Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival participants! Check back because more will be added throughout the day.
