So, were there such an award, who would you nominate?

I think I'd start with caynasmom for organizing the walmart nurse-in...or aolwife for her troubles at the gym.

Now to clarify the standards for this award: It should be for moms who advocate bf, not for moms who judge formula users. Get the difference? So with that in mind a mom who feeds her baby formula for whatever reason would be equally eligable for the award if she has stood up for a nursing mom's right to bf in public. Just wanted to make that clear so that there were no hurt feelings, but I already know y'all will play nice

It is hard to chose between all of the ladies here but I know who my vote would go to if you opened the contest to fiction;

Hathor the Cowgoddess

I love Hathor, but I think I'd have to nominate the mama (sorry, I've forgotten your screen name!) from www.feedmybaby.com. She physically cannot breastfeed her child but knows it's important enough to get donations from around the world?!?!?!

Now those are some brass areolas.

Peace to all.

Feed my Baby is Jen. And she has had so many women step up to donate milk that she may start spreading the love around to other baby's. She could start a whole new revolution here.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Oh how perfect! And I know the one, some one needs to email Heather Cushman-Dowdee and get her to redoo this figurine with the baby on the front nursing and then make it bronze colour. I think it would be the perfect award :LOL

So hard to choose! Great idea, though!

I'll donate a free "Breastfeeding: It's What Our Little Ones Need From Us" bumper sticker to whomever you all decide is the "winner." Someone would just have to get the person's snail mail address to me.

Sorry, I don’t have anyone in mind to nominate but I would like to praise you, turquoise, for including mamas who couldn’t breastfeed and/or FF mamas.
