BTW on a non-modly note....I am so happy to see all of these lovely pics. I wish that I could have been there today. Thank you to all of the mamas that worked so hard to make all of this happen. I've never been so proud to be a MDC member.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is breast feeding her daughter, Grace. What we discussed was a recent airplane trip I had taken, when a man sitting next to me in a cramped space became uncomfortable when a women exposed her breast to feed her baby. It was a particular circumstance and we are surprised that it warrants a protest."

WHAT??? The only side of BFing they have really discussed has been the negatives! I do not see them as being supportive of BFing, and it wasn't the man on the plane who was uncomfortable, she said that she too felt uncomfortable, now she makes it sound like it was just that guy, not her that had a problem with NIP. UGH! :

WTG moms! Wow - I wish I could have been there. I hope that the press picks up on this a bit and nails the catty women of The View for their closed-minded views

I don't remember if I've replied to this thread. If I'd had the $300 for airfare to NY, I would have been there with you today. I think this was an awesome thing to do! Way to go, Mamas!

GREAT job Mamas! Great pics!

Say, this isn't against the rules is it? I was browsing around The View site (hoping to find a huge apology ) and found this:

Redding,Ca signing in.Ours could have been better,but what do you expect for such short notice. We had 4 moms and 4 babes, 1 lady from the breastfeeding support centre. We are going to plan another one in about a month, just to raise public knowlegde,i think we shouldn't just have a nurse-in when there contraversay. We need to have them to let the public know thatthis is what women should do and it's not bad.

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all , Loving their daddy, my hubby, our soldier

ChaiBee THANK YOU for posting that adorable Supply and Demand Mama and Baby!!!

SO sweet and cute.

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

mamacita, don't feel bad, here in Cleveland we had four moms & a bunch of kids & no media at all. It was just too short notice, if we'd started working on it even a few days earlier we probably could've done a lot better.
