The Rockies lost, but you can WIN!

I make milk. What’s your superpower? t-shirtLast week, Tanya (from The Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog) and I had a friendly bet going over the World Series between my Colorado Rockies and her Boston Red Sox. If the Rockies won, she would give away a Breastfeeding Coalition t-shirt. And if the Sox won, I would give away an “I make milk…” t-shirt from my store.

The Red Sox swept the Rockies 4-0 and the series was over before it even started, though it did get pretty good at the end of the last game. Even I, not generally a baseball fan, watched some of it. ;)

Breastfeeding Welcome Here

In light of the Sox’s win, I am indeed giving away an “I make milk. What’s your superpower?” t-shirt. And, because Tanya is such a good sport, she’s throwing in two “Breastfeeding Welcome Here” stickers as runner-up prizes. :)

Win it! 

I’m going to make this short and sweet. To win an “I make milk. What’s your superpower?” t-shirt or one of two runner-up prizes of a “Breastfeeding Welcome Here” sticker, leave a comment here stating one of your favorite breastfeeding moments. The winners will be selected using the morning of Nov. 8 and announced later that day.

  1. When he saw my friends toddler nursing points with his eyes the size of marbles and runs to me. He lifts my shirt up to see my ‘milkies’ and begins to nurse. He pops off and watches my friend nurse you daughter with a big smile on his face.

    I think it was the first time he realized other people have ‘milkies too’ and his friend was SOOOO LUCKY to get ‘milkies’too. It still makes me smile!

  2. first of all, I LOVE this shirt!
    My favorite breasfeeding moment was with my first son. We had a really tough time getting started, and it was becoming very frustrating for both of us. The moment that I realized that it was working, was priceless. I was so excited that we had worked together to make it work. I enjoyed every moment after that as well.

  3. The first time, when the nurse said would you like to try to nurse him, I was so ready. I love my little guy and our special time together.

  4. I guess my (anti) favorite breastfeeding moment would be today when the cable guy walked into the room just after I whipped out my breast. Bonus for him!

  5. I love reading these stories!

    I still feel all warm and fuzzy when I think of nursing my newborns, when their heads weren’t much bigger than my breasts and they would open their eyes for a few minutes and we’d stare at each other while they filled their bellies. There is nothing like that look in the whole world.

    Another story: Last night my DH and I were asking my 2 1/2 year old son if he had milkies, and he replied, “No I have boos”. We ran through the list of people we know, and everyone had “boos” except for mama and a breastfeeding family friend. She and I have milkies. :)

  6. One of my fav moments was with my 15 month old. By this time she had to share momma and her milk with a one month old sister. I would nurse the baby first and I would say in a little bit you can have some, just a couple moments. She started calling her milk “bits” which all my children thereafter always called them too. Momma, can I have some bits?

  7. My favorite nursing moment was when my 18-month-old son began to nurse eagerly, but then stopped, pulled away and looked me straight in the eye. “I want chocolate,” he said, downcast. Knowing my fondness for chocolate, my husband replied, “I thought it did come out that way.”

  8. My favorite nursing moment was when I was feeding my 6-wk old son on a hike and my milk squirted out like 5 feet and my mom (who never breastfed) saw it and was just astounded.

  9. So many great stories!

    My favorite moment was just last weekend, hanging out with some of my favorite women, all who nursed their babies. It was just getting to be time to feed my little one (three months), so I had him on my lap while I unlatched the nursing bra. Apparently I wasn’t fast enough because he turned to look my breast straight in the eye and just started chattering like he was scolding it for not being ready right then.

  10. I am currently pregnant with my first and really looking forward to breastfeeding. I love this shirt and would love to sport it!

  11. I love when my son is nursing and hold on to my breast with his little hands and smiles with a look of total contentment. It doesn’t get better than that. Of course I also get a kick when he pulls off and gets squirted in the face and looks pissed off. LOL.

  12. That t-shirt ROCKS!! Oh my goodness.
    Ok, favorite breastfeeding moment?
    My favorite moments were the late at night times when all my baby’s wanted was ME. they would snuggle up to me and just smile!! :)


  13. My favorite moment is when I am chasing a 2 year old while feeding. I guess big boobs come in handy for something.

  14. Every moment. I have IGT and had a really hard time nursing and dealing with having to supplement that the fact that my 16 month DS is still nursing makes every moment the best.

  15. My favorite moment is ALL of them! Especially when my daughter looks up at me with her big blue eyes and smiles.

  16. I am still nursing my 15 month old (actually at this very moment too) so these aren’t breastfeeding memories. They are daily occurances. I think it is so funny when she blows raspberries on my boobs when she’s nursing. And, although it makes it a little difficult, it cracks me up when we shower together and just because my boobs are exposed she thinks it’s time to ursey. So there I am standing in the shower with a slippery baby latched on trying to get us both clean!! So funny!

  17. My niece (3) was watching a friend nurse who was using a nursing cover. She asked what was under the blanket. My friend told her it was the baby. She then wanted to know what the baby was doing under there. I told her he was eating. My niece turned and gave me the funniest look. She had never seen any one breastfeeding before.

  18. wow I need this shirt.

    everytime I nursed was my favorite time. I jsut loved holding my baby while she nursed, staring at her, and knowing that it is me who grew her in my womb for 9 months, and it is I who keeps her alive by breastfeeding. I loved nursing, I can’t wait to breastfeed the enxt baby.

  19. My favortie breastfeeding moment… hard to decide, but I think when my son finally figured out what exactly to do without any coaching from me and the feel of him snuggling and realising that I was ENJOYING this.. that was my favorite moment.

  20. I love the feeling of soothing a very upset baby by giving them the breast. Then they almost shiver in happiness. I’m nursing number 3 and all of my babies did this. It makes me feel like a superhero that I can provide this comfort to them.

  21. We’ve had many great times with nurse-ins, etc. but the best for us was when we finally learned to night nurse laying down. I had been sitting up in bed for months- it was maybe 3 months into it that we could finally side-lay and nurse much easier all night.

  22. I have many moments, but the onw that comes to mind right now is the other day when we were nursing and I brushed her cheek and she started giggling and was just the sweetest most genuine moment in the middle of our crazy day. It melted me.

  23. I’m about to have my 3rd baby, on Tuesday, 11/6 if not before, so I will be breastfeeding for the next year. When my babies would look up at me with all the trust in the world in their eyes. They knew I would take care of anything they needed.

  24. One of my favorite breastfeeding moments was after the birth of my fourth child, boy, at home in our master bedroom. I was lying on my side, TRYING hard to get the new baby to latch on, while my only daughter, then age 4, was feeding me cantelope with a fork. It was truly a magical moment that I will never forget.

  25. Count me in! My boys are obsessed with super powers and frequently ask me what I would pick for a super power and I tell them that I already have a super power. They don’t believe me, so I say I make milk, whats yours? They don’t think its a super power so I tell them to go make milk……. Yeah, didn’t think so.
    I am mom, hear me roar!

  26. I have breastfed all 6 of mine and am currently breastfeeding #6. I have so many wonderful memories. My favorite was when Daddy was holding our first born and she tried to latch onto him. Twice! She almost succeeded. It was too funny! !!

  27. One of my favorite breastfeeding moments is when my kids tried right after birth. It is so amazing to me that they know how to find it! My little one, Caleb, was crying right at birth (don’t they all?), and he looked up at me when I was talking to him, and he instantly stopped crying…then he nursed. It was so sweet.

    Thank you for this awesome T-shirt give away! I hope I win!

  28. I remember feeding my son in the wee hours of the night. I was beyond tired and I was dozing in the glider while he was nursing. I confess I even had thoughts of quitting the whole nursing thing. But, I looked down to him and the look of contentment and love on his face gave me the much needed push to keep going. This was a moment that only he and I were sharing and it was amazing.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway!!

  29. I live in Boston and am married to a die hard Yankees fan…we may be the only home in the state that wasn’t tuned in to every game…but this giveaway makes me really happy the Sox won! It is fantastic! I think I would smile every time I put it on.

    I have exclusively nursed both of my kids… and have been making milk for about three years straight….I love the quiet bonding time that it allows, but the best breast feeding, well more of a related to breast feeding moment happened about two weeks after my son was born.

    I went shopping for a one piece bathing suit…by myself…I was in the dressing room staring at my naked post baby body under flourecent lights when that familiar tingling sensation started….my milk came down…it was like a guiser. I had nothing to cover myself with other than my t shirt and a pile of bathing suits, so I pulled my shoulders back and watched in the mirror as my milk sprayed like a fountain and pretty much flooded the dressign room floor. I had no idea how to tell the 16 year old dressing room attendant, so I said nothing…bad, huh?

  30. Wow! I want this shirt so bad. I love getting my babies up in the middle of the night to nurse. Putting them in bed with all snuggled up listening to them nurse and the sweet little noises they make. It’s the best feeling in the world.

  31. I love everything about nursing, but probably my most cherished memories are tandem nursing my 1st and 2nd children. They were only 19 months apart, and they tandem nursed for 13 months, until my older child self-weaned.

    I’d love a chance to win this shirt! I have a blinkie that has the milk superpower saying, on my MySpace page.

  32. My favorite was the same withbothof my boys…the very first time they were able to latch correctly. It was just magical watching me nourish my boys!

  33. One of my favorite nursing moments happened a couple weeks ago in the church nursery. I was nursing my 4mo (under a cover) and my 18mo walked up, lifted the blanket and gasped. It was cute.

  34. I think one of my favorite breastfeeding moments is also my saddest. The day I weaned my first baby was a great time – it was relieving and freeing – but it also meant she was growing just a little bit more independent. I sat down with her, knowing that this feeding was our last, tears in my eyes. I watched her latch on, eat hastily, and then quickly make her escape. Easy for her, but it still makes me bawl to this day.

  35. I don’t really have any memories, but I am expecting my first and looking forward to the breastfeeding experience.

    I did use to pretend to nurse my dolls while my mom was nursing my little sisters.

  36. Hmmm…I think the best moments I have with my son are right before he goes to sleep! I’ve been told by so many people that I shouldn’t allow my son to associate falling asleep with nursing because it is a bad habit to get into. He gets very fussy at night and it is so relaxing for me to be able to calm and soothe him to sleep by nursing him. He coos and coos and then eventually falls asleep (it’s so sweet).

  37. My favorite moments with DD#1…
    *When she was really little, as I was unlatching my bra she would start this little doggy pant “ah, ha, ha, ha, ha.” We started calling her Puppy Girl because of this!
    *When she was about 15 months (maybe older?), and she popped off, looked straight into my face and said “Day doo” (thank you), then finished eating
    *When we were closer to her weaning at 21 months, and she wasn’t as serious about eating, she would play little games with me while she nursed and sometimes she would get to laughing so hard that she would just spray milk all over me!

    DD#2 is always stuffed up, so the snorty, slurpy, happy noises she makes are hilarious. I also love being able to just lift my shirt at night and pull her close. She gets herself latched on, and as we both fall back to sleep I think briefly of how I could be walking into the kitchen, padding across the FREEZING floor in my bare feet to make her a bottle while she screams. But I’m not!

  38. OH I love this. I had my picture taken with my little baby (3 months old) at the state fair, I was in the AG (agriculture) building, next to the dairy stuff, and a sign that said “Milk, does a body good…”

    Yeah I thought it was funny. Anyway enter me into your contest please, I’d love to wear that shirt.

    My best breastfeeding moment has got to be the heart melting moment your little one looks up at you while your nursing and for the first time stops nursing to give you a big smile! Mine just started that a couple of weeks ago!

  39. My favorite breastfeeding moment was right after I delivered by daughter. She was cleaned a bit, bundled up, then un-bundled, placed on my chest and nursed instantly–IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I will ALWAYS remember that moment.

  40. I was holding a garage sale and my dd needed to eat, so she was happily doing so under her blanket, and this older couple came in. The man said oh, a baby let me see the cutie…I said, uh she’s eating right now. He got all red and flustered…oh, I’m sorry! It was cute.

  41. My best nursing moments are when my daughter Storey stops nursing for a moment, drops back and gives me a milky grin. Too sweet.

  42. One of my favorite breastfeeding moments was the first time my son unlatched, had that content/drowsy look, and threw his wide open hands up in the air. It seemed like he was trying to say “I’m done, I can’t possibly drink more”!

  43. My favorite memory? Just a few weeks ago I was sitting on the couch nursing my baby. My older daughter (not quite 3) sat next to me and pulled up her shirt to “nurse” her baby doll.

    Later that week she asked me if she could borrow my breast pump so she could “pump some milk for my baby while she is taking a nap.”

    I made her her very own pump out of colored paper, an Ameda collection bottle and a cigar box.
