Breastfeeding during times of disaster

Two stories to come out of the China quake disaster- one happy, one tragic, but both showing the power of breastfeeding during times of natural disaster. It’s not something I thought about when choosing how to feed our babe, but it goes to show there’s yet another benefit to having an always available source of food for your child that requires no preparation or supplies.

My eyes well up at the thought of the final moment between mother and babe, and my utmost admiration goes to the cop. She is truly a hero in my book and I like to think I’d do the same if ever needed.
