Just a little light lactivist humor -- written by a guy, no less -- to brighten up your weekend. Hang on to your bagels.

Posted it to facebook - there was a discussion of breastfeeding in public related to a local restaurant last week, so this is perfect timing!

The comments make it funnier. I had to convince a friend to read it last night because she was worried it would be ignorant and piss her off hahaha.

Awesome! And how do babies manage that radar of "mom's getting a bite to eat/mom's about to step into the shower/mom's uh... spending time with dad" that alerts them that they MUST NURSE right that moment? Mine seem to manage it no matter how far away they are from me.

Happy with my DH, 2 kids, dog, fish, and frogs

It's on my facebook page too.

I can't help but think that the nursing mom in the cafe would have been able to eat while nursing if she wasn't holding that stupid shawl over herself.
