Lauren was born in August and the days were warm and still. I felt relatively well and especially grateful to not be pregnant anymore in this hot weather. Lauren was breastfeeding around the clock and my older boys were busy with outside activities.
In the summer of 2012, I had an opportunity to attend a conference featuring Jack Newman in the tiny Central Oregon town of Hermiston. As a life-long Oregonian I was a bit puzzled by the location, Hermiston was famous for watermelons and not much more. However, Dr. Newman is a popular speaker, author and researcher and I was willing to drive across the state to listen to him talk. I didn’t know at the time, but Dr. Newman would save my life (or at least my nipples) in a few short weeks.
