I think we can do it ... anybody have any connections with, oh, I don't know, bunches of nursing mamas with 'tude? Get a whole group of ladies with babies & toddlers & preschoolers all ready to hang out on the Upper West Side and, well, nurse?

guerillamama, I'm sure you do :LOL ...

Anyone?

Hey, we're talking New York New York. If you can make a nurse-in there, you can make one anywhere ... :LOL









Come on, ladies ... let's give Barbara some good mammaries ... uh ... memories ... (sorry, that was awful, I know :LOL)

Keep me posted. I'm in Connecticut (though not the gold coast), but could make it work with some effort.

Saw something on VH1 yesterday about Star Jones. For someone who proclaims modesty, she likes to show off her mammaries.

I'll be cheering you on from way out in AZ! Would love to go, but I don't think dh would go for showing my milky mamas to Star Jones et al a good enough reason to go to NYC. I hope you all do it. It would be really cool if you could be in the audience, but I guess that they would never allow children in the audience .

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

i'm up in canada, can't go to the nurse-in. but, here's the letter i sent:


Good morning, Elisabeth, and congratulations on the birth of your wee Grace! I hope things are going well. I recall being a new mom and feeling overwhelmed.

I wanted to comment on your "Grace has proudly graduated to formula" statement. I feel really saddened that you, a mom who has some celebrity, would make such a comment, which clearly implies that formula is *better* than breastmilk. We know that breastmilk is alive and provides innumerable short- and long-term benefits for baby, mom, and the environment.

Despite formula companies' best efforts to create 'new and improved and more-like-breastmilk' formulas, there will never be an artificial baby milk that contains all the compounds and benefits of breastmilk.

Your choice to use formula is just that, your choice, and your business. BUT when implying that moving to formula from breastmilk is a wonderful milestone, you are displaying ignorance.

I hope that other mothers are not swayed by your comment, for, as we all know, breastmilk is the single best food for human infants.

Your baby is lucky that you breastfed her. Any amount of breastmilk is better than none, and that's a gift you have given her.

I hope you stay well.

K



edited to add that i re-emailed elisabeth to acknowledge that i was mistaken in attributing the comment to her, rather than to her cohost. i mis-read something : i did send her support. i hope she continues to share this gift of bf with her daughter.

cross post with Television


I have posted a list of advertisers who showed commercials on the View today. See post number 185, page 10, of the thread called "Barbara Walters "offended" by BIFP" with the link posted below.

If you have been offended by Barbara Walters bashing nursing in public,

or upset when a View host announced how wonderful it is that Elizabeth is stopping breastfeeding and switching to baby formula, and encouraging the audience to applaud,

or are sick of Star Jones bashing breastfeeding on the show, you can tell the advertisers what you think!!!!

These are the TV commercials I saw today on the View on ABC TV, Monday, May 30, 2005 (Memorial Day.) Hopefully I haven't made any mistakes.

If you can't find the list please PM me.

Hi there, I'm mostly a lurker on these boards, but I did get invaluable help from you ladies when I was trying to get my then preemie to latch. Btw, he did, and he's been nursing for a year now! I'm from San Francisco, but I actually will be in NYC visiting my sister next week. So, I'm coming with my 1 year old! I hope somebody else will be there! Should we bring signs or something? I think we should try and get some attention, right?

Why 11am? The pages come for the audience at 9:30am. I'd start nursing then, so that word would make it up to the producers/hosts by taping at 11am.
