It is time for another Milk Mama Diaries Blog Carnival. I apologize if my co-host Mec (Mec as Mom) and I have not been able to regularly host the carnival for the past 6 months. However, this is a perfect time to host a carnival as next week, September 24-30 is World Milksharing Week 2012. The theme is: Sharing Milk, Nurturing Community.
I have previously written about donating breastmilk and its importance especially during emergencies and calamities. Milk banks are also constantly in need of donated milk to provide for the NICU babies who rely on them.
For this carnival, Mec and I are inviting mom/dad bloggers to share their thoughts/experiences on and hopes for sharing milk. The carnival is also open to families who are milk recipients and would like to share their own experiences or challenges being a milk donee. Check out my previous carnival posts to get an idea of how the blog carnival works and how posts look like. To join, please fill up the form here or below.
The following blurb must be included in your carnival entry as well as the Milk Mama Diaries logo: “Welcome to the Milk Mama Diaries Carnival (September). For this month, we will tackle milk sharing and how it can nurture the community, and how this spirit of giving can be sustained. Participants will share their thoughts, experiences, hopes and suggestions on the topic. Please scroll down to the end of the post to see the list of carnival entries.“
