I was very happy to see an article in today's Chicago Tribune—on the front page, no less—about Henry Hale, a young dad whose newfound raison d'être is to do whatever he can to encourage breastfeeding.
This snippet gave me a chuckle:
Not long ago, he overheard two women in a store comparing formulas and he just couldn't help himself.
"Have you ever considered breast milk?" he asked.
Within moments, he launched into his monologue on mother's milk: how it reduces the risk of infection. And for nocturnal feedings, nursing releases hormones that make it easier to fall back asleep.
"One woman ended up dragging her friend over and saying, 'Girl, this man knows so much about breasts,' " he said.
For his finale, the proud father usually whips out a photo of his daughter.
I want to meet this guy, just so I can shake his hand.
