I agree. It's not that unhealthy for Christian to be bottlefed mother's milk once in a while, considering how healthy he's looked in most pictures, and if Mary commits to something at this point, I think she should be fully committed, instead of popping out regularly to feed the baby.

It's nice that she wants to be close to him, but it is possible to bottle mother's milk for occasions like this. (And then, if parental guidance is needed for the feeding, maybe have Frederik feed him the bottle when Mary can't?)

I just think that if Mary has accepted and is present at an event, she should be there as much as possible, and not have to divide her time. She has a nanny and a husband.

I think you're missing the point, it's a matter of being unable to last seven hours (the length of this event) without expelling the milk from the breast. A lot of women who return to work after maternity leave and are still breast feeding have portable breast pumps to expel the milk from their breast at three/four hour intervals because they cannot last until they go home to feed their babies. Breast feeding is not like a tap you can turn on and off at will. The alternative would be for the organizers to provide Mary with a private room that she can slip into to collect milk.

As I am sure many mothers can add to what Mandy has stated...if Mary doesn't release the milk can't it build up and cause problems? From what I understand from my nursing friends...the milk is just like the baby and gets set on a time table.

Not really, what happens is that the hormone oxytocin along with other ones stop producing any milk. There is no problem in her not breastfeeding. Many women used to do it in the past. For the baby it can be good to build his immunity however.

I am sure its different for each nursing mother. For one of my girlfriends..if she didn't pump or feed at a certain time, her breast became sore and it was extremely painful.

I also had a friend who's breasts became very painful if she didn't feed/pump at regular intervals. The event was seven hours long. While I agree her popping in and out might have been distracting, at least Mary was there and smiling. This kind of situation might be ongoing for a couple of months.

I agree. I think it was fine that Mary was there for the entire session as far as possible and tried to fulfil her nursing obligations in between.
I once had to leave a 40 years birthday party because the mere thought of my then 7 months old daughter at home resulted in a totally wet blouse. That wouldn't do for royals :)

Just wondering?
I'm pretty sure that it is Jo. The wife of the present Peter Heering (there seems to one in every generation) is one of queen Margrethe's very good friends, Susanne Heering. She runs her own ballet school and QMII has many times helped her doing the scenography, costume drawings etc. Through the years, there has been some pictures in the media of QMII after ballet performances at that school, sometimes with QMII wearing flower wreaths around her head .

There is a bit more to that, especially in the early months as with CP Mary. Baby depends on mother for nourishment and mother depends on baby to extract the milk. My understanding is that 30% of breastfeeding women end up with mastitis at some point which is pretty nasty. Or you could get plugged ducts which is painful and can lead to mastitis if not treated. As the baby gets older the breastfeeding decreases and the mother can go for longer periods without having to extract the breastmilk. It's a gradual process. And yes, it's the best thing for baby's immunity!

As patron for two Danish mental health associations, Mary opened a new psychiatric facility at the psychiatric hospital at Elsinore. The new facility is designed by architect Bjarke Ingels.

Caroline is not supposed to stand out, that is why she has to wear these depressing colours. Too bad, she is a pretty lady.

I agree. She can dress however she wants on her own time, I guess. Besides, I doubt they tell her what to wear. But I'm sure she knows she should be more in the background.

Not a fan of the blue and white combo, but I very much liked the ensemble from The Wood Employers Federation Design Competition.

As always, beautiful!

I really like her Blue-White dress! It looked much more summer-like then the silk dress she wore!

I like the blue and white colors, very fresh, she should try the combo more often, but I have to say I don't care for the little puffed sleeves - they're a bit too girlish for a woman of 34 with a 9 month old son and and HRH in front of her name. It doesn't quite work for me. I think Mary is having trouble arriving at a look that is informal yet princessly. I can see what she's getting at, but I don't think it's quite working yet.

The Rotary event she and F. attended next shows an outfit that I think hits the mark better, a lovely pink wrap dress and very pretty hat. But I haven't seen photos of it here yet.
