Goodbye Farrah, Goodbye Michael

I'm going to dedicate my blogs today to two icons of my generation, both of whom died last week.

First Farrah: Such a beautiful woman. If you look through my highschool yearbook, almost all the girls at least attempted to have a Farrah hairdo. We had to watch Charlie's angels - not because it was a good show, but because we had to see what they were wearing and study their hair. A little shallow, I know. Back then, we didn't have cable TV, so the shows that made it big had a huge viewership and much more control over social trends. After Farrah left the show, none of the other actresses could quite reach her level of fame. Farrah went on to do more serious acting which received rave reviews. May she rest in peace.

Michael: What talent! He's exactly my age (yep, I hit the big 5-0). Boy, that really makes you wake up and feel your own mortality. I recall walking home from elementary school (back in the days when parents didn't drive kids everywhere) and singing songs like ABC and Oh Baby Give Me One More Chance. Who would have ever predicted back then that his life would have unfolded the way it did. I feel for him because he was such a tortured soul. The older I get, the more I realize that although many people strive for fame and fortune, the happiest among us are just regular run-of-the-mill people who live ordinary lives. I hope his children find peace and can stay together. Rest in peace Michael.

How Long Should You Breastfeed?


I wish I had to contemplate that question. Unfortunately, my breastmilk dried up after only 3 months. But for women who are successful breastfeeding long-term, they may wonder when to stop. Here is an article about breastfeeding:

Breastfeeding Your Baby: How Long Should You Do It?


Here is an excerpt from the article regarding recommendations from the following organizations:

"American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)

The AAP says there is no “right” time to wean your baby from breastfeeding. According to the AAP, when you stop breastfeeding depends entirely on you and your baby. They say that babies should begin receiving formula or solid foods in addition to breast milk at approximately six months. They also say that some babies begin to lose interest in breastfeeding between nine and 12 months of age, and there is no reason to force your baby to keep breastfeeding at that point.

World Health Organization (WHO)

The WHO recommends that mothers continue breastfeeding for up to two years—while giving complementary foods after four to six months—to improve the nutritional status and health of the baby. If prolonged feeding is not possible, WHO experts suggest that mothers exclusively nurse their babies for at least four months, and if possible, up to six months.

La Leche League

The La Leche League—a group that offers support to breastfeeding women—sets no time limit on breastfeeding. This organization says the longer a mother nurses her baby, the better, and if you and your child enjoy breastfeeding, there is no reason to stop. Experts here suggest letting your child wean naturally, gradually growing out of breastfeeding"
