Get out the vote

Last week was World Breastfeeding Awareness Week, and in honor of it, I entered a photo contest to promote breastfeeding.

As most of you know, breastfeeding my kid for ~19 months was the hardest thing I've ever done in my entire life.  You can read about the highlights of it here

I'd really like to win a Major Award for breastfeeding, but I don't need any of these prizes.  If I do win, I'll donate the prize or raffle it off or figure out some way to give it to a mother in need.

You can help out by visiting this site and voting every day for the next 6 days!

The photo I entered was one that Rob took on the day of my PhD graduation ceremony.  You know, the PhD I got for the dissertation I wrote on maternal investment and the weaning process in howler monkeys.  Fitting.
