Hi Erin!  I'm still here shy.gif  Maybe we should start a new thread?  I worry that anyone who used to come around might not be able to find us, but if you do, definitely just post a link to it here.  


I love your DH's interest in the topic!  I'm really lucky in that my DP is almost as excited about babies as I am, and we actually have a lot of really good discussions about having babies, how we plan to raise children, etc.  Breastfeeding is one that guys almost NEVER seem to get right away though - a few months ago, DP said something to the effect of, "I totally agree with breastfeeding, I just don't understand why women fight to do it in public when it makes other people uncomfortable - why don't they just go somewhere else?  Why does it matter?" Me: "FIREdevil.gif."


After a ten minute lecture in which I (mostly) calmly enumerated all of the reasons that NIP should be a right and why it IS a big deal, DP got really quiet and thoughtful and said, "Wow, you know, I feel like a total idiot now.  I really never thought it through.  You're 100% right and my argument was 100% wrong.  The fact that I or anyone else am uncomfortable is totally irrelevant!  Babies should never have to wait to eat, and women should not be told they should hide something so awesome.  Thanks for explaining it.  I still feel a little uncomfortable, but I'm going to work on that in the future."  I feel like that response makes it pretty clear why this is the man for me love.gif Now can we get the politicians to respond like that?  


Any other NMY out there?
