August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week. I’m hoping next year we will find something new to celebrate.
Thirty-three years ago, I breastfed my first son. We had a rough start. I grew up thinking babies were bottle fed formula and never saw a baby breastfeed before my son was born.
There was no breastfeeding help in the hospital. My wonderful nurse, Mary, was not discouraging. But no one offered help. I went home from the hospital when my baby was 24 hours old and had just been circumcised. He refused to breastfeed at home. When he was four days old, I went to a La Leche League meeting, but felt too embarrassed to tell them my baby would not latch. I left that meeting in tears.
You can now support MilkWorks through Pickit, the app made by UNL students who want to revolutionize the way non-profits raise money. Each time you use Pickit at a participating Lincoln merchant, the merchant donates to the non-profit you pick! Learn more at www.pickitmobile.com.
