Have Milk, Will Travel: Comic Adventures in Breastfeeding

No comments

Calling all nursing mother-writers: Have you ever sprayed milk across
the room at a particularly inopportune moment? Wrangled a nursing
toddler in a sticky situation? Traveled across the globe, or even
across town, with a nursing babe and surprising results? Do you fancy
yourself somewhat of a comedienne and have you lost all modesty
through years of pregnancy and nursing?
