Cafe Au Lait - Women Talk about Breastfeeding
August 17th, 2007 by Diane Sam
MoBoleez is launching our "Cafe Au Lait: Women Talk About Breastfeeding" video documentary at the Victoria Baby Show on Sept 15, 16, 2007!
MoBoleez loves breastfeeding! I founded MoBoleez with the intention of celebrating and supporting the breastfeeding mom. But, the more I talked to women, the more I realized they had something to say. They all had stories about what breastfeeding was like for them:
... like the women who was told her nipples pointed the wrong way, and might have trouble breastfeeding (what??? how can your nipples point the wrong way? That seems like urban myth to me! - she breastfed just fine, by the way...)
...like the mom who had to argue with the nurse in the hospital against supplimenting the baby with formula, when he was latching and nursing just fine!
...like the mom who was trying to breastfeed her baby in a crowded bus and ended up spraying milk all over the guy sitting next to her ...
...like the mom who struggled for months with pumping, sore breasts, mastistis, etc.. so she could breastfeed her really premature baby (who is happy she did, by the way).
.. and the thousands of moms out there who were surprised at how deeply they loved breastfeeding, how sad they were when they finally gave it up ,and how they wished the experience was better understood, and the emotional depth of it was explored and acknowledged.
This video experience is for you. Drop by our booth at the Victoria baby fair (www.victoriababyfair.com) for a chance to tell your story Or, stay tuned to this blog for more information!
