Breastfeeding on Good Morning America
posted on May 16th, 2013

Hi Everyone!

No, I didn't actually breastfeed on television. ;)

This morning I appeared on Good Morning America with anchor Abbie Boudreau to talk about my choice to breastfeed my son Draco until the age of 2 1/2. 

It was a fun interview, and I was glad to have the opportunity to share my experience with other mothers who might be considering "extended" breastfeeding! 

I know there can be judgment out there, and I encourage moms to do whatever feels right - and if they choose to breastfeed longer than is "typical," I say this to them: You go girl! ;) 

Here's the Good Morning America interview.

Hope you're having a great day!

Hi!  Good for you for extended breastfeeding, and thank you for talking about it on national television!!  I breastfed our daughter (now 25) until she was 4 through my pregnancy with our son (now 21), and it worked great.  He was breastfed until he almost turned 3. Both children have grown up so well and are such kind, lovely adults.  I owe La Leche League a debt of gratitude for all the books they had that helped me feel more comfortable with my decision.  I am so happy that you were able to offer your son this great method of comfort and reassurance.   Best wishes to you!  Kathy

I could never think other than the upmost, for you.  I respect you as a lady and a mother.  I'm so glad life is working out for you and you help so many.  Stay who you are.  I adore you.  Peace.

I think it's great that more women are normalizing breastfeeding. I also breastfed my son for two and a half years and mainly quit when I did because of pressure from others who claimed it wasn't normal. I saw a news clip of you on ABC and noticed they made some snide comments about attachment parenting and can only hope that when our children grow up and are the kind, gentle, healthy people we've helped them become, that the mindset changes and more women feel confident enough to breastfeed, co-sleep, and not feel they need to hide it.

I have heard from doctors that a child should be breast feed for two and half years only after that mother should discontinue it as it is not good for their child. north shore

The common rail system prototype was developed in the late 1960s by Robert Huber of Switzerland and the technology further developed by Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, later of Ganser-Hydromag AG (est.1995) in Ober?geri.
The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]
Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.
