Donating Breast Milk

Donating Breast Milk

In the first weeks of my young son’s life you could track our daily progress around our apartment by the drops of breast milk everywhere: around the bed, on the floor by the change table, through the hall leading to the bathroom (where the spray across the shower curtain was positively Hitchcockian), on into the kitchen, and ending in a little puddle by the rocking chair where I most often nursed. Those drops didn...

Grab & Go, While the Going Is Good

Grab & Go, While the Going Is Good

Summer is the season of out-and-about. Warmer weather and holidays lure us away from our wintertime ruts of home/work/school/repeat into a relaxing, dream-like world where it’s light till very late, the wind blows warm, and we’re stretching our winter-weary legs and wandering away from the four walls that we’ve huddled between for so many months.
