It’s Carnival time again and since it is the holiday season, what better topic to have but “BREASTFEEDING GIFTS”. You can share about how breastfeeding has enriched your life, delighted you or maybe even changed you. Talk about your most favorite gift, pair it with a popular Christmas song or carol (e.g Twelve Gifts of Breastfeeding) – be as creative as you can! Feel free to make it as personal, introspective or grateful as you can.

On a side note – have you noticed that we finally have a carnival logo??!! And this is thanks to Mec!! Yay!
Here is Mec’s explanation for the logo:
“Credits for the image go to the lovely Ms. Erika Hastings of Mudspice: Mucking about in Art and Motherhood. Her original painting of breastfeeding a toddler was in autumn hues but I took the liberty of Photoshopping it a little to make it pinker to touch on BREAST CANCER. I also decided to use the ‘breastfeeding a toddler’ painting rather than the ‘breastfeeding an infant’ one because WE ARE FOR EXTENDED BREASTFEEDING.
For those who will also notice, the words [font for] MILK MAMA looks like Angry Birds-ish and you will be right. However, I used the font because it’s name is actually FEAST OF FLESH and ‘us breastfeeding moms do offer our babies a feast using our flesh’ :)”
Thank you, Mec for creating a carnival logo!!
