On Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2007, at 10 a.m. in 24+ countries around the globe, mothers nursed their children to help set a new world record and participate in Synchronized Breastfeeding Worldwide.
We were just about to head out the door to attend a social with my midwives, but we took a few moments for mama’s milk and Ava (the budding photographer) snapped this picture. (Isn’t she getting good?) :)
Did you get a chance to breastfeed at 10 a.m. yesterday? Were you in your home or out with a group of other breastfeeding mamas? If you wrote about it on your blog, let me know and I’ll link back to you. If you didn’t blog about it, but did participate, I’d love to hear about that too. Just leave a comment. :)
