Breastfeeding idol!

K and I were at the monthly BF support group meeting at Mary the Queen yesterday. Topic was BF support of the mom, and since it is June, dads were especially invited because Fathers’ Day was up soon.

I met a special woman, Maybelle, and her husband Ken (small world, he’s my mom’s godson!) who have a six week old baby girl. Maybelle shared that she is a breast cancer survivor. She had a masectomy sometime back.

Maybelle and Ken wish to give their baby only the best. What’s amazing is that Maybelle and Ken have chosen to exclusively nurse their little Sophie! They have read up and armed themselves from skeptics who would ask whether Maybelle has “enough”, because she has only one breast.

But God designed our bodies. And all his designs are perfect. I’m sure Maybelle will have enough for Sophie’s needs. It’ll be a little tiring on the growth spurt days, but I’m sure she can make it.

Kudos to you, Maybelle and Ken!
