Special Guest Sunday: The Leaky B@@B

This Special Guest Sunday is an often controversial Facebook group. The Leaky B@@B is a group that was started from a woman who had a blog. She was reaching out to hundreds, possibly thousands of women on her blog, but she then realized she could help so many more by starting a Facebook page.

This Facebook page has over 15,000 people who like it. It also has been removed by Facebook- but with enough protesters and information to the people of Facebook it has been brought back and I haven't seen it removed since!

The benefits of this facebook page are far reaching.

There is a constant flood of breastfeeding women/mothers/ pregnant women posting on the wall. Their posts cover everything from teething, nursing in public, diaper rash help, potty training, problems with breastfeeding, and so much more.

If you have a question, post on the wall and one or ten or fifty women will post back with help, advise, sympathy, support, congratulations, or condolences. They will show you that you are not alone.

I am not nursing but I still frequent the page, I like the status updates, and answer the questions throughout the day when I have the time.

If anyone deserves a special guest post- it is the Leaky B@@B. What an important and beneficial way to help women through social media.

ps- don't be worried about creepers lurking about and posting- the host of the site catches these pervs quickly and blocks them from ever coming back to the site.
