This morning I looked at an old issue of Today’s Parent magazine that was on my coffee table (I kept it because it gave great ideas about how to organize children’s birthday parties), and read about competition between mothers. The article seemed to consider “competitive” the fact to tell your child, when giving him an apple, that the word apple starts by the letter “A”. When I found today’s quote, I liked that it does not read breastfeeding is the “best” gift, but that breastfeeding is “a” gift.
Breastfeeding is a mother’s gift to herself, her baby and the earth.
