BERKELEY -- In a matter of weeks, more than1,000 fierce female competitors, chapped sore from months of rigorous training, will engage in a battle to retain Berkeley's world-record status in an event so fulfilling, so titillating, so overrun with babies that if Dr. Spock were still alive this would probably kill him.
Indeed, it is time once again for the breastfeeding marathon, which last year drew a whopping 1,130 lactating ladies and their wee ones to the Berkeley Community Theater auditorium, putting Berkeley in the Guinness Book of World Records."
