Breast is best in a disaster

"In emergency relief operations, breastfeeding for infants should be protected, promoted and supported. Any donated supplies of breastmilk substitutes (or other products covered by the Code) may be given only under strict conditions (if infant has to be fed with breastmilk substitute); the supply is continued for as long as the infants concerned need it; and the supply is not used as a sales inducement." From LLL`s fact sheet on disasters, emergencies and breastfeeding

I am going to focus on this tonight at my meeting, the topic is advantages of breastfeeding. What better advantage is there than having the food to get your baby through a disaster, right on your body? Not just OK food, but food that is vastly superior and will help your baby avoid so many scary illnesses that lurk in crowded situations.

I am happy that I have my meeting figured out, now I can run around town and buy stuff for my 5 year old to bring to snack day & get myself some new makeup. Time to turn on the techno & motivate!

About Me

My photo
I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
