I recently joined a contest hosted by Manila Fashion Observer and BabyMama. To join the contest, I sent photos and a short story of the weirdest/strangest place I breastfed at. Here’s my entry:
After more than 2 years of breastfeeding (and still going), I have breastfed in several regular and strange places – on a public beach, at weddings (before a wedding and during a wedding at Manila Cathedral)…
…at the Legarda Mansion (La Cocina de Tita Moning), at the grocery, on the metro on the way to disney HK, while shopping in the mall and in a plane – several times! I even have an entire blog post about nursing in public
! I’ve realized that Filipinos are more accepting of the fact that babies do need to it and have the right NOT to do eat in a toilet. In fact, I’ve actually influenced my daughter to nurse her own “child”! 🙂
What’s the prize?
It’s a Spectra 9 Breast Pump plus 10 boxes of breast milk bags!
I want to win this for my sister who is working while nursing her baby Anya. Anya was born at 32 weeks and is now almost 5-months old. My sister is also continuously breastfeeding Anya and has gone back to work in March 2010.
You can help me win this contest by going to Baby Mama’s Facebook page and voting for my entry. Voting starts today and ends on June 6, 2010. Please go and vote!! 😀
