Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week




"A nurse helping my 1 day old son nurse while I was in the ICU following his birth. At this point I was a quadriplegic and could only feel his soft hair and skin when he was placed by my neck to cuddle. Breastfeeding is the reason he was allowed to stay with me in the hospital for 5 months while I lived on the physical rehabilitation unit learning how to walk again (complications from when he was born). It's amazing how much baby stuff you can fit in a hospital room. We are still breastfeeding strong at 16 months! If this is not a success story I don't know what is :D"

(enormous thanks to Serena Tremblay for giving me permission to run this photo and story - absolutely amazing)

Wow! That is amazing. Kudos to whoever was advocating for her during this time. I imagine many hospitals wouldn't even try.
