I can truly count the number of times my oldest daughter Kaelani has gotten sick. She never had late-nights runs to the emergency room with a fever like so many parents are accustomed to doing. And I’m pretty sure breastfeeding her for 8 months had a lot to do with it.
I breastfed all five of my kids. But some much longer than others. But there are too many moms who rely first on made-man infant formula which pales in comparison to a mom’s LIQUID GOLD. So to further the cause and to gain support of black moms breastfeeding there is a National Breast Feeding Making HERstory Twitter campaign on February 27th from 9 to 10 p.m.
Join Atlanta blogger Sojourner Marable Grimmett @Sojournerruth, Reaching Our Sisters @Support_Rose and Moms Rising @MomRising and US BreastFeeding Committee @USBreastfeeding for a conversation encouraging African American women to share their breastfeeding stories.
Follow the hashtag #BlkBFing and you could win gift cards from retail stores. This is a conversation of great importance. Join in!
