On VH1's show about the weekly "headlines" they just declared that lactivists are having the Best Week Ever. I just about fell out of my chair!

They talked about the View and the NYC nurse-in. Some of the comments were disparaging (sp?) but I still think that it's nice to have it out there even more.

Way to go Mama's!!


Things are really changing right before our very eyes.
:

Before I had my son at the age of 36, I had only ever seen 2 women breastfeed in my entire life. Once when I was about 9 or 10 I had a friend who's sister was nursing her son and then again when I was about 29 or so I knew a women who was breastfeeding her daughter.

This is the best week ever and I am so honored to be a nursng mother at this time. :bf

The momentum is so strong, we are goin all the way Baby. I wouldn't want to be a formula company right now. ( not that I ever would at any time)

I think it's great that a mainstream media source with a huge market of young people is giving this issue attention.

A big WOO HOO to all the mamas participating and supporting the cause.

And also, kinda, thanks for Baba's ignorance. It's getting the word out.

What were the disparaging comments? Or do I not want to know?

nakking, late.

I was standing in line at the grocery store tonight and was flipping through People and almost started jumping up and down when I saw pics of the NYC nurse it in the mag..HOW AWESOME!!! I so wish I had been there! I ran out to the car to tell DH about it!! He thought it was awesome too!! I so wish I lived closer to NYC..But if they make other comments I might have to make the drive!!!

i saw the show and i actually thought it was pretty good. of course, they joked about it, that's what the whole show's about. but it was more about how the view sucks than how NIP is bad. it made me laugh. i was happy to see nursing moms on tv. they had some cute jingles i forgot already (2, 4, 6, 8, we're so proud to lactate!). i'll try to watch the re-run. it's worth it! it was in the last 4 minutes or so of the show.

i was thinking that too. it's unfortunately that baba is so ignorant but without her comments, this ball wouldn't have started rolling and bfing wouldn't be getting all this great publicity.

I was pleased to see this too! I thought it was really funny that they had one guy saying that more women should be encouraged to expose themselves and breastfeed, then they showed a bunch of boobs from rock videos or something, scantily clad of course, and then the nursing moms. Guess which group was showing more skin!
