It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about motherhood in general. I mean, besides my constant complaints…
Lots of cool stuff going on today–actually all of this week. As I’ve mentioned and tweeted about frequently, as a blogger and writer, I’m often asked to attend cool events. Today’s event is a rather cool one, and one that I’ve spoken about candidly, but have treaded lightly for reasons I’ll explain below.
I have such fond memories of my whole nursing experience. Ok, so maybe I might have wanted to punish a certain snoring someone because I was exhausted from all the on-demand nursing at 3 and 4am. But overall, nursing was just one of those things that worked out for me.
And if you know me or read this blog enough to know, nothing ever quite works out the way it should…
except my whole breastfeeding experience.
Ok, I vehemently take that back.
I might have pumped in a storage closet/defunct kitchenette for almost a year.
Yeah…everything went smoothly for me except that.
As a full time work outside of the home mama, where I pumped twice a day was a small detail, right?
Oh so wrong.
Until now, I’ve never felt that I was one to preach to the masses about breastfeeding. Quite honestly, I know it may even make some of you, my readers, my family, my friends uncomfortable. I know this.
But that’s about to change.
Today, I was invited to attend the Bravado Breastfeeding Launch Event, which is geared to be an intimate event in NYC celebrating the launch of BBIC, the information arm of Bravado Designs. The event is described as being a roundtable filled with data and commentary where the BBIC will share their research and findings based on 17 years of expertise and as told by 80,000 moms.
As a first time mom who read books, upon books about motherhood and how to be a “great” mom, I truly didn’t know nearly enough about breastfeeding. I have often referred to Kellymom, but obviously there’s so much more to know about the topic, which is why I’m so honored to have been invited to such a groundbreaking event.
From this event, I hope to share some new-found knowledge about breastfeeding on this blog, and perhaps, in print somewhere.
Mamas, no one should ever have to pump in a supply closet, dirty restroom or anywhere else that’s unsanitary. EVAH.
