I just wanted to share how excited I was driving down 6th ave (across from Jason Lee) today and saw a new huge billboard promoting breastfeeding! And the last 2 times I have been in Target I have seen another mom with a sling on! And last week I saw a mom nursing a toddler in public at a park!! Anyways just wanted to share, cause sometimes I get depressed at how mainstream this town seems. But now I am feeling the Tacoma love <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

That's awesome~I'll have to tell my Mom to take a peek (I'm calling her now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ) as she's in the area quite often! YAY~We're an hour from Tacoma otherwise I'd peek <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

My husband is actually the first one who noticed that board. He got really excited. He's so pro-breastfeeding. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
It's actually on a couple blocks from our house.<br><br>
BTW, for future reference, where does the North Tacoma LLL meet?<br><br>

I just moved from Tacoma a month ago and am sorry to have missed it! I lived right off of 6th and would have loved to have seen it. I'll look for it when I'm back for a visit this summer. What group is sponsoring the add?

I saw that too!! Does anyone know if they're will be more/different ones placed throughout the area?<br><br><br>
Also, the Puyallup LLL group is quite friendly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We meet at Good Sam hospital, third Tuesday eve. I know a few gals from the N. Tacoma group too - all very nice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I went to one N Tacoma LLL meeting with my first dd, when I was 23 and had just had her. And I have to admit I really didn't think I would have anything in common with the moms cause they were all older in their 30's and 40's.<br><br>
But I was just thinking about giving it another try, now that I am older too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> and I just got over my first bout of mastitis, I need all the tips I can get to make sure it never happens again!<br><br>
I will be out of town for the next one, but will for sure try to make it in August.

I just saw that billboard on Saturday. And thought those should be everywhere. Why aren't there more? But I was glad to see it!
