yeah this ruling is illegal.  I am trying to find the superintendents email address, I really stink at google!
yep.  seriously.   We need to write some serious letters ladies. and maybe someone who is calm and rational and able to see past seeing red about this could write a nice forum letter that we all use??  anyone?   link: http://www.walb.com/story/14470710/school-borad-rules-on-breastfeeding?redirected=true#
I actually posted about her years ago here: http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/735480/a-link-to-a-paper-questioning-bfing   there is a further breakdown of her assertions in that thread :)
I guess I keep getting hung up on the word "hero". I mean, I guess I can see how formula can be heroic if a baby who would otherwise die, does survive due to infant formula. But I can't get past the fact that I really think women shot themselves in the foot and we did all of us a greater disservice by acting like men instead of demanding the system change to accommodate the workers that are *needed* for society to function economically. if all mothers quit it would...
I picked up the recent book "Superfreakonomics" I really enjoyed the first one, got a kick out of it. This one I didn't enjoy as much, mostly because the authors explored things I all ready knew about and contended some controversial things, such as the car seat section (I am sure there was some thread somewhere on MDC about it). Anyway, I was reading the first chapter about women gaining the ability to go to college and be gainfully employed and start competing for...
I watched this yesterday and have been thinking about it as well. this movie could potentially cover MANY topics, like the lack of maternity leave in the US, well unpaid maternity leave. I also hope the cover the race/class issues, I hope they expose formula companies for the unethical UAviolations they are and I hope they acknowledge what and uphill battle it is for women to successfully breastfeed for almost any length of time. I would also personally love love...
I was trying to figure out if Betty Draper from Mad Men breastfed her baby or not (guessing not, though with no definitive answer yet, if you know please tell!) anyway, I googled Mad Men Breastfeeding, and this was the link that surfaced. its terribly funny, IMO: http://adbroad.blogspot.com/2008/06/...d-against.html
that is one reason why I gave the example of the friend being offended by my breastfeeding. TBH, I don't even remember the exact incidence, and its entirely possible he saw my "whole boob" while latching baby on. but I have never been one to "whip the whole thing out" while nursing. but I do have friends that do. maybe some people on here even do. if that is considered "radical" or not, I know we can go in circles about this modesty/discreet thing. I guess I am...
to say that women are allowed to feed their babies however they see fit, even with full breast exposed? that if we downplay "modesty" as important, we only harm ourselves and our cause in the long run because we all seem like radicals who let our boobs just hang out everywhere? because we alienate those who would consider themselves "middle of the road" as in, sure feed your baby in public, don't hide in a bathroom, but please don't have your entire boob hanging out...
we discussed this earlier: http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1114248 Here is the response, which I am sure isn't going to get as much press. sigh. broke the link just in case, I put a space after share. http://www.facebook.com/ext/ share.p...u=E40TX&ref=nf linked through FB sorry!
