媽媽在公共場所擠奶是否合宜,經常是許多民眾爭論的話題。最近美國一名新手媽媽,參加一場藝術祭典「火人祭」成為現場焦點,因為她胸前掛著兩個擠乳器,不害臊地在會場走動,甚至還「現擠」母奶供人享用,但這名媽媽「公開哺乳」的行為,目的是為了讓人體諒做母親的辛苦。

Being an entrepreneur is unique because there is so much uncertainty. Uncertainty in timing, uncertainty that the product will be a true fit for the target market, uncertainty in scalability, and major uncertainty if there will be enough money to get to the point of profitability. Having good luck plays a significant part too (good luck is mostly good timing). There are lots of surprises along the way, but always interesting and always opportunities to learn and grow. And it goes without saying that there needs to be real commitment on the part of the entrepreneur. Being a new mom is a whole different thing that flexes a whole new set of muscles. The word "commitment" takes on a very different meaning and the need to embrace the uncertainty is critical. This is a lifelong startup. The sleep deprivation and constant breastfeeding are the craziest parts that nobody really warns us about. As an entrepreneur, I don't have to wake up every three hours to tend to my project, but I do as a new breastfeeding mom. As an entrepreneur, I can focus for a stretch of hours at a time and as a new mom, I have to be very efficient with my time. I used to think that when I had my calendar packed with meetings meant I was being "productive". Yes I did get a lot done that way but practicing Paretto's 80/20 Law now has become the much smarter way to do things: focus on the top 20% of most impactful things I can do every day and delegate the rest. I have a solid, mature, excited team who can get the job done, which also gives me the space to be creative and think bigger. The funny thing about this whole motherhood-entrepreneur thing is that the more I play with my sweet squish prince, the more ideas I have in business. I am writing the section in my new book now on how play is the new productivity and how important it is to go back to seeing the world like a child - with wondrous curiosity and awe (sans jaded societal thinking and piled on shame). My book comes out next fall and I am completely disrupting how adult books are written, you'll see what I mean... ;-) Most importantly and presently, happy 8-week birthday to my favorite, squishiest nugg-face @hirojourney ❤️❤️❤️Love is.

現年38歲的大膽媽媽是艾葛拉瓦(Miki Agrawal),同時也是一位新興的創業家,今年7月她生下一名男嬰,正值哺乳期的她每3小時就要擠一次奶,要不然胸部會腫脹到讓她受不了,但有時根本無法即時找到哺乳室,就連要找到隱密的地方都很困難,而公開哺乳的行為過去也曾被人認為會引人遐想。

艾葛拉瓦趁著祭典傳遞做母親的辛苦,索性穿著補助哺乳的內衣在會場走動,而這奇特的衣著也吸引民眾目光,她藉此向其他人宣導母親哺乳的辛苦,許多人才知道原來生完小孩不是輕鬆的開始,事後哺乳又是另一個辛苦階段。艾葛拉瓦也不吝嗇地「現擠」母乳分享給40名民眾,希望喚醒大眾給母親一個友善空間。
