Lauren was kind enough to share these photos of her adorable little guy chowing down on his first food--my felt watermelon! You can read more about Eli and his breechy born twin sister Eleanor here. Thanks, Lauren!
This set of a Mama's Milk carton and bottle cozy will soon be in the presence of midwifery greatness. They are heading out to Health Foundations Birth Center, just in time for a special fundraiser to benefit Mama Latte, a non-profit organization that collects and distributes donor breast milk in Minnesota and throughout the Midwest.
The special guest at this fundraiser is Ina May Gaskin, a world renown midwife and author. Her books include Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding and her most recent, Birth Matters. I still remember the much loved copy of Spiritual Midwifery sitting on my mother's bookshelf for many years, it's hippy-dippy blue cover unmistakable. The stories in Guide to Childbirth helped me prepare for the birth of my own son. Ina May's work is an inspiration and I'm thrilled that my items will even been in the same room with her, displayed at this milky event.
