If someone wants to make postcards or buttons, please do ahead, maybe just let us see the slogan or picture before you print it.
|Lactating Women Staging A “Nurse-In” As A Response To Comments Made on ABC’s The View.
A Nurse-In is set to take place at 11 AM on Monday, 06 June 2005 outside of ABC’s studios in New York City, producers of the daytime talk show The View and some local mothers have decided to do one outside of our local ABC affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio. We are planning for the same time, 11 AM at channel 5, 3001 Euclid Avenue.
Lactating mothers and their supporters from many areas will be converging on their local ABC stations to protest comments made by cast members of The View. The breastfeeding mothers are protesting the general anti-breastfeeding attitude of the co-hosts of The View and comments made concerning their opinions that breastfeeding and nursing in public is “gross and disgusting” in nature. The mothers are also upset about the celebratory nature of an announcement made concerning the first bottle of formula given to the infant daughter of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the youngest and newest cast member who also gave birth recently.
The lactivists will be promoting breastfeeding and emphasizing its positive benefits for both mother and child, including lower rates of breast cancer, reduced incidences of childhood obesity and asthma, as well as stronger immune systems in breastfed infants and toddlers.
The World Health Organization recommends formula only as a fourth option for feeding infants, behind breast milk, expressed breast milk and donor breast milk (from humans, not animals). Even formula companies include disclaimers in their advertising that breast milk is the best source of nutrition for infants. As well, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that “pediatricians and parents should be aware that exclusive breastfeeding is sufficient to support optimal growth and development for approximately the first 6 months of life and provides continuing protection against diarrhea and respiratory tract infection. 30,34,128,178–184 Breastfeeding should be continued for at least the first year of life and beyond for as long as mutually desired by mother and child.185
All the Nurse Ins have been coordinated completely by volunteers.
