  • This Week in CFO History: Saving the environment, more on breastfeeding, financial responsibility, and pasta puttanesca

    Last year, I listed ten small ways to save the environment.

    I’ve got nothing from two years ago – I was still a miserably sick preggo and not spending much time in front of the computer at all.

    And three years ago, I was having a blast with my brand new blog. I wrote a bunch of posts about breastfeeding – Breastfeeding Problems – Supply Part I, Breastfeeding Problems – Supply Part II, Other Breastfeeding Problems, and Thoughts About Breastfeeding Pillows. I also discussed how being financially responsible is one key to happiness, and shared my recipe for pasta puttanesca.


    1. I am pregnant and after a long time away from the personal finance blogging world, I decided to take a break from my current reading on pregnancy, breast feeding etc. and read a few PF blogs. And wouldn’t you know, I had to stumble into pointers to articles about breast feeding problems 🙂 But I am glad I followed the links and read your older articles since I had no idea that you could “rent” a baby scale! Now I know a little more than I did before – information that the “books” would probably not tell me 🙂

      @ispf – Is this your first baby? You should know that for every woman I know who had some trouble breastfeeding, there’s another who had no trouble at all. And I actually find that those of us who struggled were much more inclined to breastfeed for a longer period of time, so maybe it was sort of a blessing in disguise. Good luck to you!
