FREE Vintage ‘Eat at Mom’s’ Poster from Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, PhD, IBCLC, FAPA

Galactablog has some exciting news! Each day this week (and maybe next week too if I have the energy and enough material), a new FREEBIE will be offered to Galactablog’s readers daily. Life has been difficult enough lately. My goal is to give you something to look forward to when you wake up in the morning (or when you go to bed at night depending on where in the world you are) that’s absolutely free and lactation-related – no strings attached.

So what’s up for today? Well, I’m a sucker for art. Any art. But what really grabs my heart is breastfeeding art. Does anyone else here feel the same way? So when my hear colleague Christine Staricka, IBCLC shared this charming vintage-style ‘Eat at Mom’s: Open 24 hours’ with me and I found out it was FREE, I literally had to stop myself from jumping up and down with joy! Yes, I’m that passionate about breastfeeding and art and when it’s combined, my heart swoons.

This vintage poster was created by Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Ph.D., IBCLC, FPA and available through Praeclarus Press – a website you should definitely check out because it’s full of articles, webinars, books for both parents and professionals and so much more – including more FREE printable breastfeeding-related posters and graphics here and more free resources here.

All free posters and free resources are completely yours to keep, print, share publicly, and distribute however you like, royalty-free. Just ensure you respect Dr. Kendall-Tackett’s copyright and do not alter without her explicit permission. You know the rules – give credit when credit is due and respect each other’s work.

So if you’re just dying to get your hands on this vintage-style poster, all you have to do is to click here to download. Now you have some pretty cool artwork for your office or home, without having to leave your house or empty your wallet.

Free Handouts: Depression, Breastfeeding & Related Topics in New Mothers (+ more!)

UppityScienceChick: Evidence-Based With Attitude is one of my new favorite sites that I’m incredibly excited to share with all of you. It’s run by the esteemed Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Ph.D., IBCLC, FAPA and she provides a plethora of resources on breastfeeding, mothering, women’s health, postpartum depression and chronic diseases. Originally when I planned this post, I was writing it solely to share the FREE handouts on depression in new mothers but then as I explored her site more deeply, I become enthralled.

I had no idea that she was the author of one of my favorite breastfeeding books for new moms (easy and simple to read, to the point), titled, Breastfeeding Made Simple: 7 Natural Laws for Nursing Mothers

See here for FREE handouts on “Treatment for Depression” (topics included are in yellow box below)
