Blackout

Post by LiamsMamma » Sun Mar 20, 2011 7:44 am

Not really an emergency as such, but when I woke up to feed last night, we had a blackout. I was really grateful that I didn't have to worry about heating up a bottle, or even making the bottle up in the dark.

Once again, I have been thinking about all the baby's in Japan and on ABM. What a nightmare!

My friend was recently posting online how ironic it was that she could use Facebook during the10 hour blackout by mobile Internet, but she couldn't feed her 2 bottle fed kids because her kettle and microwave weren't working :shock: She had to drive to her mums house and use their microwave... I was so glad for breastfeeding after reading that!
