Eats on Feets goes global

I'm taking a break from my November-long hiatus (NaNoWriMo eats my soul every November) to announce that the global woman-to-woman breastmilk sharing initiative, Eats on Feets, is up and running.

Rather than me try to explain it all, I'll just link you to the important information:

  • Eats on Feets Global press release
  • Eats on Feets Oklahoma (the page i help moderate)

  • The goal of Eats on Feets is to provide pumped breastmilk to women who have to supplement their own breastfeeding infant. Rather than using formula, which has been shown to be harmful to infants, women will be able to connect and share expressed milk. "Human milk for human babies" is the rallying cry and the raison d'ĂȘtre of Eats on Feets.

    If you know of someone who is breastfeeding and has a stash of expressed breastmilk or someone who needs to supplement her breastfeeding infant because they are not producing enough breastmilk, please send her to Eats on Feets; there are chapters in nearly every state in the US as well as in Canada, Europe, Australia...

    Women have helped women with their babies for generations. Let's get back to that model.
