hmmm Christians don't have breasts? I know many people that identify as Christian that breastfeed their babies, there are many posters on here. If anyone that identifies as Christian says anything tell them Jesus was breastfed until he was 3 yo and Mary was never asked to cover up. Breastfeeding is feeding a child, not a sexual thing. You weren't dancing while you were doing it, were you? (I was raised Southern Baptist). I have a hard time with all of this. In Sweden, it is common for entire families to go swimming naked, with other families. No one thinks it odd. Why are people so afraid of nudity and breasts? We are all born naked. I breastfed today at a skating rink full of children. I did see a few young boys looking my way from the other side of the rink. I do not use a cover. I am glad they get to see the way babies are fed. Their mother (sister, aunt, cousin, etc) should have been the one to show them, but obviously not. Good for you standing your ground and informing them of the law. I will be happy to write a letter to the YMCA, on this behalf. There have been issues with them and NIP in the past I have read. Let's teach them what families are about, and feeding your baby is a central theme. Maybe organize a nurse-in? I am nowhere near Kansas, but would love to attend a local nurse-in.
Thank you Emmeline II for the link. Those were great pictures. I would LOVE to have a nurse in, I think I might be the only one who would show up. Thanks for all the responses. My main goal is to inform the YMCA of the law and inform them that breastfeeding IS family oriented and breastfeeding Mammas should not be forced to cover up or feed their babies in an uncomfortable locker room away from their 2 other swimming children.
