A very meaningful day. Early early morning after I wake up, mommy quickly changed my pajamas, put on nice clothes, n off daddy, mommy n i headed to Penang Caring Complex for the meaningful event - Global Breastfeeding Wave. Since i born till now, mommy has been exclusively breastfeeding me. I'm so proud of mommy. She stands so firm to breastfeed me even though she faced many obstacles along the way.
This wave event was organized by the World Alliance Breastfeeding Action (WABA) in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week, when mothers from 21 countries taking part breastfed their babies for 1 minute at 10am local time on Aug 8. Among the countries that took part were Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Cameroon, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Uganda, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, United States, Greece, Japan and the Philippines. They wanted to make it into the Guiness World Record. I'm in the Guiness World Record. Wow!!!
We just reached there. After registering, we found a seat n snap some photos.
It was on Wednesday, daddy purposely took leave to bring us there. So we taught we are the ONLY chinese.. hahahha.. guess we were wrong, quite a number of chinese family there too. :P Look at the crowd. Can u spot where r we?
10am sharp!! Start! All mommies started breastfeeding their babies now. Oh, there was 1 rule, must breastfeed the whole entire 1 minute. If the baby stopped b4 1 minute, no count. Mommy so worried that we wouldn't qualified as i'm a very curious type of person, always want to look here n there, n there was so many new things for me to explore that day. Nevertheless, i good girl, suckled for more than 1 minute. After 1 minute, the MC announced 'Congratulations all mothers and babies, we made the record. You may continue breastfeed your baby. Tq' Yeah yeah, we made it.
60 mothers n babies made it to the record.
My first time, we were like a BIG STAR. One of the photographer from The Sun, came n asked mommy if its ok for him to take some photos of her breastfeeding me infront of the banner. Mommy so sporting type of person ofcoz said no problem la. So he grabbed a chair n let us sit on it. By the time he started taking photos, ALL other photographer from other newspaper came and took also. Wah, u cannot imagine, how much flashlight that time. We were like the celebrity walking on the red carpet. kakakakaka.. =D
