Yey! I am watching Primetime Live about the conjoined twin Buckles babies. They said that the mother could not get them close enough to breastfeed because of how they were joined
but she pumps and EBFs.
I just love watching stuff like this. Primetime live announced it like it was a wonderful thing too!

Yay!

Though, honestly, there are people who are at higher risk from the flu, and these kids are probably in that group. Not denying problems with the vaccine, just saying outside the general population, there are those for whom the benefits outweigh the risks.

i saw a little of this story on GMA. Charlie Gibson did the story so i assume he did the whole interview. Anytime i see him mention breastfeeding he always has such a sweet smile on his face. Like a father remembering fond moments of watching his wife nurse their child.
I'm glad they are getting breastmilk despite the odds.
