Thanks to everyone for sharing their breastfeeding stories for my book giveaway contest.
Here are the ten winners of my book “Mama Knows Breast: A Beginner’s Guide to Breastfeeding.” Will the following ladies please send me their mailing addresses. Write to mamaknowsbreast@yahoo.com.
1. Lindsie:
I don’t have a funny story because I had trouble breastfeeding my first due to inverted nipples. I would like to win a copy of your book because I really want to be able to breastfeed my second.
2. Katie:
The cable guy was working on the TV in another room and suddenly came into the room where I was nursing my daughter. while he was asking me a question I didn’t even notice that she detached and my breast was hanging out free! Guess he got a little more of an eyeful than he was bargaining on!
(I would love to have this book for my mother who is a doula. She does a lot of breastfeeding education.)
3. Amira M.
I am not a mom but my good friend, who is a lactation consultant, was breast feeding her son in a lecture hall during a class. now, he has the habit of making lots of very “satisfied” noises while he is feeding and because of where she was sitting in the hall, his suckling was loud enough for the professor to hear! he stopped and everyone was looking around to see what was making the noise, but the baby was nicely hidden under a blanket.
4. Vicky:
I guess one of the funniest times was when I was nursing my second son. My oldest who was around 2 at the time always wanted to help out like a big brother. His baby brother was hungry and I was having one of those hormonal moments….you know the one that can make you cry in an instant because you are lacking sleep. I started boo-hooing and my oldest sat beside me and lifted his shirt and told me he would feed the baby so I could “rest.” He immediately turned my tears of frustration to tears of joy.
5. Awesome Mom:
I was not able to nurse my #1 son because of his heart defect. He was too weak to nurse so I pumped 14 months for him. During his second hospital stay for a heart surgery I kept having nurses come in to check in on him because they thought my pump was my son breathing really funny.
6. Chris:
The look I got from a semi-truck driver as I pumped while driving home late from work one day!
7. Lucy:
My first baby is due in June, so I don’t really have any stories just yet, but would love to be entered to win (it is a beginners book after all :) ).

8. Liz

My craziest breastfeeding moment has to be when I was on a 6 hour car ride to visit family. We had stopped multiple times and the baby was just not happy to be in his seat. I kneeled on the seat next to him and hung over top of his seat and fed him while he was still strapped in! Oh the memories! :)
9. Becky
I wish I had a funny nursing story to tell. My first two attempts were pretty awful, so I don’t remember anything funny, just sad. The lactation consultant said in her 25 years of doing this, “I’ve never seen anything like you.” Great! : ) I’m determined to give it a try again this time with baby #3. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog giveaway. This has been so much fun!
10. Audra
I feel asleep feeding my baby in the recliner (don’t worry I didn’t drop him) and when I woke up awhile later. I found him asleap and me nursing his ear which was filling up with milk! Thanks for the great giveaway! I would love to give this to mis sis-in-law who was anti breastfeeding the first time but has had a change of heart and would like to breastfeed #2.
