Another great gathering. 2 expecting mothers came. Mommy Yati told us that she failed to breastfeed her first baby. Now with the second baby, she is determined to breastfeed. Another mommy is expecting a twin, a baby boy and a baby girl. How lucky. Both expecting mommies have learnt the 4 golden rules to successfully breastfeeding their babies.

A mother came with the question on what to do with her excessive EBM and later found out that she can make some breast milk soap!!! Happy she was.

Another mother came and shared that she still not used to nursing in public, even with nursing bra and nursing top. We showed her how to nurse in public by just using normal bra and clothes. 🙂

We are happy that there were few mothers who came and shared their breastfeeding experience with the expecting parents. This has certainly made this gathering a fruitful one. Thank you mothers.

For those who have missed this month gathering, do join us next month. =)

MMPS has been invited to give a 30 minutes breastfeeding talk and to have a booth to promote breastfeeding at the Mother and Baby Fair at Sunshine Farlim on April 22, 2012. It was a great event. Big crowd. Many people have learnt that cow’s baby drink cow’s milk, human’s baby drink human’s milk.

Crowded.

 

We ended this event by having a breastfeeding/nurse-in flashmob. 7 mothers showed them all that breastfeed in public is not obscene. And most importantly, baby has his/her right to be fed anytime and anywhere. We adult can drink anytime and anywhere, why not our baby? During the breastfeeding flashmob, we encourage the people, whenever they see a mother breastfeed in public, do give her a LIKE or a thumb up! 🙂 Their support is much much appreciated.
