1. The Breastfeeding Moms group on Cafemom! The ladies in here are VERY supportive and will encourage you to continue thru the weak moments, when you think you're gonna give up. I am very thankful for this group, it has helped me NUMEROUS times.
2. LactMed. This database will inform you of trials that have been completed with each drug and the outcomes. It gives accurate information and is always up to date. Great for anyone that has to take prescription medication! I think it's always best to check things out yourself and not just trust what others say.
3. The Quintessence Foundation. They encouraged me to start a local competition for the annual global record they have. We placed 99th globally for Largest Site! My local site has a Facebook page, it's link is to the right of my blog... Feel free to like that page! I want to say to other breastfeeding mommas to look into this and either find their closest local competition OR start one if they can't find one. You can also count yourself from home! Check it out :)
4. Infant Risk Center by Dr. Hale. This webforum along with helpful articles is a multitude of knowledge.
5. The Peaceful Parenting blog. This blog is fun, relaxed and promotes natural parenting techniques. I love reading the posts on there :)
6. Kellymom is the number one source I hear referenced.
7. La Leche League International is another site that is used by breastfeeding mothers round the world and has local support groups!
8. The World Health Organization says, "Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond." And has all the statistics in one place to look thru.
9. Your local WIC office (you can find an alphabetical list of state offices HERE). The website says, "WIC participants who reported having received advice to breastfeed their babies from the WIC clinic were more likely to breastfeed than other WIC participants or eligible nonparticipants."
10. Your local Health Department, or their website geared for women's health HERE. There often is a certified lactation specialist that works at your county health department and can help you find resources in case you need more!
These are the sites I have used for resources and I have found alot of support and help by visiting these sites, so I hope you may find them helpful also!
You will want the PTU kit Daddy's Special Day by Creative Scraps by Crys, which you can find HERE.
While you're over there, pick up the FTU template Crys made HERE.
And grab the mask pack I have on my blog HERE because I used the wavy mask in there :)
Let's get started.
1. Open a new canvas, size 800 x 800. Go to LAYER>TRANSPARENCY>COLOR TO ALPHA to make background transparent.
2. Open up as new layer paper 3 in kit. Right click this layer in layers box and choose ADD ALPHA CHANNEL.
3. Open up as new layer the masks. Delete the top and bottom layers, you want to use the WAVY mask. Right click on this layer and choose ALPHA TO SELECTION and then click on paper 3 layer of kit to make active. Go to SELECT>INVERT and then EDIT>CLEAR. The paper layer now should be your mask layer. So delete the original wavy mask layer, then duplicate the new paper mask layer. We'll come back to this in a bit.
4. Now you need to open up as new layer the template. Delete Raster 1, 3, 4, merged and 6. Then colorize Raster 2 to a medium to dark blue, and add a drop shadow (FILTERS>LIGHT AND SHADOW>DROP SHADOW with settings at 3, 3, 15). Right click on Raster 5 in layer box, choose ALPHA TO SELECTION. Make a new layer and make your color box have a light turquoise blue as foreground and a medium/dark blue as the background color. Click on the BLEND TOOL and check settings- make sure the shape is spiral cw, then starting from middle to the the upper left corner draw a line. The text should now be the blended colors... Add noise. FILTERS>NOISE>RGB NOSIE with settings at 20/20/20/0. SELECT>NONE and delete the original Raster 5 layer from template. Use the eraser tool to erase the stars that are a part of this layer, if you like, at the bottom... Then right click and ALPHA TO SELECTION then SELECT>GROW by 2. Add new layer and fill with white. Add a drop shadow with same settings used as above.
5. Open as layers frame 4 in kit. Scale to 330 x 207. Add drop shadow.
6. Open as layers grass #1 in kit and scale to 250 x 208, duplicate and place on each side.
7. Open as layers frog 2 in kit and scale to 148 x 172 , place accordingly. Add drop shadow.
