Next Year? A New Celebration!

July 30, 2014

By Ann Seacrest, RN, IBCLC, Executive Director of MilkWorksannandsonweb

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.
