WIN A BOOK Take 2!

The response to my first contest to WIN A BOOK was amazing and I’d like to thank all who entered. To continue the launch celebrations, I’m running a second contest to win another copy of Breastfeeders Anonymous.

I ummed and ahhed for ages about a question, because I wanted another one that both pregnant women and those already mums could answer, so in the end, I decided to go for a fun one… but I’m afraid it might take a little effort.

Breastfeeders Anonymous was HUGE when I first wrote it and gathered all the compilations – came in at about 500 pages, which was just way TOO LONG for a book of this sort. So, unfortunately I had to cut some of the chapters. One of those that got the old HEAVE HO was ‘Celebrity Milk Machines,’ so I decided to give that chapter it’s fame today. Below is the discarded chapter on breastfeeding celebrities (well part of it).

And how is it related to the contest??? Well, I challenge you lot to find a celebrity who isn’t on here that breastfed or was breastfed as a baby. Leave their name in the comments section and if possible, leave a link to the proof (i.e. where you found out the info).

CELEBRITY MILK MACHINES
It’s sometimes hard to believe that celebrities are actually normal people, especially celebrity mums. Without doubt, a few months or even weeks after the initial piccie in glossy magazines of mum and baby, there are shocking and depressing photos of said celebrity mum’s post-baby body. Usually she’s far thinner than she was before she popped out the baby. Perhaps it’s these images that lead us to the assumption that most celebrity mums bottle feed – I mean how can they produce milk when they haven’t an ounce of fat on their skeletons? I know I myself never pictured Pamela Anderson with a baby attached to her humungous bosom, but my assumption was wrong. Pamela Anderson, along with many famous mummies, breastfed her children. Here’s a list of other celebrities who publicly admitted to breastfeeding their babies:



Tori Amos
Christie Brinkley
Hilary Clinton
Cindy Crawford
Celine Dion
Gloria Estevan
Jodie Foster
Jennie Garth
Jerry Hall
Faith Hill
Madonna
Joan Lunden
Andie McDowell
Elle McPherson
Demi Moore
Sarah Jessica Parker
Jane Seymour
Kelly Preston
Jada Pinkett Smith
Meryl Streep
Uma Thurman
Catherine Zeta-Jones
Roseanne
Princess Diana
Queen Elizabeth 2nd
Princess Mary
Bec Hewitt (nee Cartright)
And lots, lots more.

Celebrities that were breastfed:
· All the members of The Hanson’s band.
· Michael Jordan

I’ll announce the winner on August 19th and it’ll be a lucky dip – I’ll put all entrants name’s into a hat and get my son to pick a winner!

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, Pamela Anderson breastfed :o - see link http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/wichd/lactate/celebs.shtm

And apparently the Brazilian Soccer star Edson Arantes Do Nascimento (better known as Pele) was breastfed - for FIVE YEARS, no less - maybe that;s why he's so good :D

Gweneth Paltrow breastfeeds, I remember reading an article when she was sitting in an interview one time and she was leaking and very full. She also does not mind feeding in Public
She was also thinking of a water birth also.

(don't you just hate long web links!)

To name a few more for you, Gwen Stefani, Katie Holmes and Jennifer Garner - There's a little story on this web site about them each.

"Few Hollywood moms nursed their babies publicly, but there are some particularly notable exceptions. For example, Keely Shaye-Smith, wife of James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan. She appeared on the cover of Redbook magazine nursing their baby. And model Jerry Hall once appeared in the pages of Vanity Fair breastfeeding her son with Mick Jagger, Gabriel."

Erykah Badu, Katie Couric, Tipper Gore, Julianne Moore, Tracy Pollan, Patricia Richardson, Holly Robinson Peete, Cheryl Swoopes, Cynthia Watros, Rita Wilson just to name a couple more...
