They were talking about the internet and Elizabeth said that she found support for moms of babies with acid reflux, maybe that's why she stopped nursing? (Although she has a nursing top on today, so who knows?)

I didn't see her on GMA since 8, so maybe she got bumped or was on before I started watching?

I didn't see anything on their website either. Is there anyway you can get a hold of her and figure out what is going on?

Add another to the boycott list. I am horrified a mother’s right to feed her child could be treated with such disregard. I have taken my DD on at least 5 flights all of which I pulled out the boob on.

I e-mailed Delta!
They said....
Our response to your e-mail may take a little longer than usual due to
the high number of customers who have contacted us recently.

i wish we had the means to stage a country-wide nurse-in. but i don't know how to do something like that.

i'm glad the airport was accomodating to the vermont nurse-in and you ladies (and babes!) did a great job!!

i hope emily knows that she has so much support!

my husband said he's going to text the new bfing symbol to that ceo's cell phone with a message: "when this is all cleared up, you can use this symbol to let people know that they are welcome to breastfeed on your flights. if, that is, anyone who breastfeeds even wants to fly with you after this." we're going to check to make sure its his number first.

I emailed Paul Skellon and Delta yesterday. I emailed Jonathon today.
I've only received the standard "we'll get back to you" from Delta. I'll update if I hear anything...

And yay for the ladies that went to the nurse in!!
