When my friend Carol returned to work after having her first baby, she was determined to continue her baby's breast-feeding program. "Just because you are returning to work doesn't mean you have to wean your baby from breast milk," she said. "Breast-feeding was good for me and my baby. It gave my baby the continued protection and nutrition of breast milk and allowed me a chance to be with my daughter at least once throughout the work day. " Recognizing U.S. Department of Labor statistics indicating that more than 50 percent of the labor force is female, and more than 80 percent of these women become pregnant at some point in their careers, many companies have become more sensitive to the needs of working mothers.

ANNAPOLIS - An Anne Arundel County lawmaker wants to make it illegal for a woman to breast-feed someone else's child without permission from the child's parents. The bill was prompted by an unusual case in his district last year when a Glen Burnie, Md., woman tried to pacify another woman's crying 11-month-old son, said Sen. James E. DeGrange, who introduced the bill Wednesday. The woman began breast-feeding the child before employees at the Jessup, Md., day care center realized what was happening and could stop her. The child's parents were upset and worried that the woman could have passed along a disease.

The World Walk, an international observance of La Leche League International, was held in conjunction with World Breast-feeding week, Aug. 1-7.

There's another holiday gathering in the forecast. Next weekend, families will get together in bulk to celebrate Christmas. Deep-down, everyone has their own personal reasons for good cheer: seeing family and friends again, anticipating the New Year around the corner, getting to eat and drink too much, or just getting the day off from work (that one's got my vote). While pondering the impending festivities, I couldn't help thinking about all the breast-feeding moms who'll be among the fold, and all the little irritations and responsibilities they're going to have to face for which the rest of us never spare a thought.
