I’m a breastfeeding advocate but I can’t get my hands around this one.
It seems Illinois can claim to have one of America’s only male lactation specialist. Chicago’s Henry Hale was so inspired by his daughter’s NICU experience with breast milk that he became something of a self-proclaimed pied piper of the breast pump. And it seems that once this 25-year-old security guard discovered the virtues of breast milk he shelved his flashlight and never looked back. He had to share his passion with the world. You can read the story here in the Chicago Tribune (be sure to check out the part where Henry talks smack with formula-toting mothers in the grocery aisle).
A local spokesperson for La Leche league calls it “cutting edge”. As for me: I report, you decide.
