An inspiring story!

post #1 of 18

I plan on donating my extra breast-milk (I make a lot), but this woman took it one step further. She's my hero!

An inspiring story!

That was a really amazing thing to do, especially for someone you don't know very well.
I'm always offering to nurse my friends babies if they need to go somewhere, funnily enough no-one has taken me up on the offer. If i was to go into hospital for treatment i'd like to find someone to nurse my baby.

Hi ladies!

Hi ladies! Nicole here from Le Blog... Jessica pointed out to me that our story was re-posted here- what a small world!! I'm so amazed that the story made it around the internet- and so fast (I just posted that 24 hours ago)! I've been meaning to join the mothering forum for a while, so this was a good catalyst. I'm so glad to hear that there are other women out there cross nursing! I've sort of made it my one-woman mission to do my part in normalizing breastfeeding. Honestly I find it to be an epic tragedy that the stigmas we face in this Puritanically influenced culture have done so much to quiet breastfeeding in general.

In my opinion, it's even more subtly insidious than I think a lot of folks realize. My sister, who I am positive regards herself as an open-minded individual suggested I use a blanket or otherwise to cover myself after I told her that I haven't gotten over the thrill of pulling out my boob in public. It's definitely easy to forget I live in Texas sitting in the blue speck on the map that is Austin. But I hear stories of like-minded mamas outside of this oasis that are actually reprimanded for feeding their children in public. I'm here to tell ya, I've got a whole soapbox speech prepared if anyone ever approaches me about it!

Lastly, I'll just say I find it so bewildering that there have to be federal laws implemented to protect our right to do this. I'm going to stop myself here before I start waxing nut-cake about how we should all breastfeed everywhere al the time. I'm so glad y'all liked the post and I look forward to surfing the forums here...

Nicole - The reason I read the blog is because my best friend Camille White (high-school friend of yours) linked me to it. She said that you're her hero and that there should be more people like you in this world! I just wanted to share it with as many people as I could because it really is an inspiring story!

Lovely! I do not have a full milk supply due to a breast reduction in my teens. I nurse using a nursing supplementor and my babies have been very blessed w/ milk from many mamas. I currently have about three months milk in my freezer for my newest baby, from three different mamas. God bless mamas who are so giving!

What a wonderful story!! I am glad everything went well. Both babies are so adorable!!!!

Take care,

Oh wow- I certainly know Camille! I had a hunch seeing that you are from Portland that it might have come through her. Give that lady a big ole squeeze for me- it's been way too long since I've seen her!

Will do!

Btw

By the way, that original link that's posted above directs to the homepage of Le Blog, which I've since written in and so has changed from the wet nursing story.

Here is the direct link to the wet nursing story in case anyone still wants it.

Thanks again for reading! :

That means we're connected by just 3-4 people. The 6 degrees of separation really are true (most people are connected by 4 or less from what I've heard).
