Mamarevolution.com was started in early winter 2004 by four young mamas who needed a place where they belonged. Too young and alternative for babycenter and too old for the teen based online communities, they struck out to make a home for mamas who just didn’t fit in anywhere else. After a few nights of brainstorming and women sharing their talents, Mamarevolution.com was born.
Mamarevolution is a pro-choice, feminist community who seeks to support, encourage and educate young women and mothers from all backgrounds and cultures. Our goal is to provide the community and support that is so desperately needed as we fight for our rights as parents and women, and to defeat the social stereotypes that surround young or alternative parents.
While we promote breastfeeding and natural parenting, we recognize that each family is unique and has their own set of needs and customs. We respect and support all families and their allies in their quest to raise strong, positive and socially conscious children.

In response to the Anti-Breastfeeding Campaigns
Some of us are putting together a petition for Oprah to do a show on the benifits of Breastfeeding and on the Realities of being a mother in 2004. It is harder and harder for us to get quality medical care and support for the one thing we can do to encourage our children's health - in all respects.
This is not about extended breastfeeding or about the dangers/badness of formula. This is simply about the positive effects of breastfeeding and the difficulties we face due to community and medical ignorance. Please, if you Breastfed for 1 day or 1 year, 3 months or 33 months, consider writing to Oprah about why you think this is an important issue that merits time on her show.
Oprah single handedly reaches and influences more women in America then any other forum. This is the way to be heard. Let's get the positive and supportive message out there; Breastfeeding is important and Natural and ALL women can do this, for however long is right for them!http://www.oprah.com/email/reach/email_showideas.jhtml

I was wondering what all of the WAHM's do and how they came about the jobs. I am looking for something that I can do with my 10 week old and the 22 month old that I am coparenting here. Current Mood: determined

So I thought I'd have a Pepsi and a peanut butter cookie to reward myself for coming in to work today when I really want to be with my baby...
And of course the whole time I was drinking it I just kept thinking "This is corn syrup, water and artificial junk. Why am I putting this in my body? Do I want my son to drink this through my breastmilk?"
So I ended up not enjoying my 'treat' at all. I guess I've finally become a mom, eh?
I'm so happy to have found this community! What a great idea. Current Mood: disappointed

Hi all! I saw the post in the breastfeeding community and thought that I would join this one. I have a daughter, Kaia who will be a 5 months old tomorrow!! I can hardly believe how fast the time went by. We have been exclusively breastfeeding since day 1. We will probably start solids in a month or so. She is starting to show interest in our food.
I am excited to share and learn more about this!
Thanks for creating it!! :)
here's my first recipe contibution for babies starting meats which i will say went against my better judgement ,but we live in a meat eating society so i know she will be exposed to meat at sometime, so i am preparing her my self
2 large yams or sweetpotatoes (organic of course) but if not organic make sur product of usa not mexico
1/2 lb fat free free range ground turkey
1 organic apple
1/2Lb organic carrots
1/2lb organic zuchinn
steam veggies til soft cook turkey in skillet use hand mixer i love my braun hand wand ,but food processer works well too, blend until pureed if too dry add veggie steaming water to loosenup freeze in 2 to 4 oz containers and this should make 12 to 14 meals worth i find that this meal goes better at lunch and guarantees you a good afternoon nap
so here it is after searching and finding nothing on this topic i decided to take it upon myself to create the community ,but here is the kicker i am a computer bone-head .Sowe are dealing with a work in progress and all help is appreciated and desired so feel free to help me set this up to be a place we can all visit share and enjoy knowing we are doing the best for ourselves and our littleones
This is such a great idea!
I'm really excited about this community. Thank you so much.
My husband used to work for the Organic Trade Association
. He worked there for quite a few years and eventually we just couldn't eat regular food anymore. It's too expencive to maintain a full Organic Diet where we live, but we do only Organic Dairy and try to do Organic Veggies, Fruits and Meats as often as we can. When we got pregnant I started eating almost exclusively Organic and now that Fionna is starting Solid Foods we only give her Organics. So far that's just Rice Cereal and Bananas but soon it will be even more.
I'm excited about swaping recipes/coupons and suggestions wtih solids.
