Breastfeeding Police Officer to the Rescue


A Chinese police office, Jiang Xiaojuan, 29, is the mother of a 6-month-old boy. After tthe magnitude 7.9 quake struck last week, she responded to the call of duty and the instincts of motherhood.

“I am breast-feeding, so I can feed babies. I didn’t think of it much,” she said. “It is a mother’s reaction, and a basic duty as a police officer to help.”

As of Thursday, the death toll from the earthquake had risen to more than 51,000, while more than 29,000 are still missing. Thousands of children have been orphaned; many others have mothers who simply can’t feed them. Although she cannot do it all alone, Officer Xiaojuan has jumped to the call of duty including, at one point, feeding nine babies.

“Some of the moms were injured, their fathers were dead … five of them were orphans. They’ve gone away to an orphanage now,” she said.
