Social lactivist for a day

Last Friday I took my kids, met up with a friend and hung around Lincoln Square as part of a "nurse-in," held in reaction to an incident where a woman was publicly hassled for breastfeeding outdoors.
In my years of nursing in public, I was never hassled by a stranger, but I do know the difficulty in wanting to modestly feed your baby while carrying on with your life outside of home. It is not easy. So we donned the International Breastfeeding Symbol stickers and played and visited and watched as nursing moms were interviewed by television reporters.
You can find multiple versions of the story online. Here is the Chicago Sun-Times version.

go team go! its sad to me that someone would find breastfeeding indecent! especially with those adorable coverups they have for us lucky moms these days.....and those teeny tiny baby toes sticking out from under them.

I think I've said it over and over but that was one of the most shocking things about becoming a mother and choosing to nurse-- that society makes you feel bad if you choose not to breastfeed (or if you're unable to) and yet everywhere you go you're made to feel uncomfortable about doing it! Argh. More power to you for showing support for that mom.

I love Mr. Jeff Hooker's opinion that women showing their breasts in public is indecent, unless its on a beach. Who saw that coming? Breasts are always associated with sex, even though they aren't necessarily a part of the act itself, and it amazes me that in this day and age, using them to feed a baby and keep it alive and happy is still shunned by people! Other women and mothers, at that! I have nursed 3 healthy children, for a combined total of 7 years. Anyone thinking they could have ever taken that natural right away from me better look out. Way to go for showing your support!

I've always wanted to go to a nurse in.... good for you guys.

yay moms! i was surprised to hear it was a woman who complained :( honestly, i don't think i have ever seen even the slightest flash of skin of anyone who was nursing in public. i am on my third and i can't imagine not being able to go out and about because people felt it was indecent. what's indecent is all the men of various ages feeling the need to go topless all summer long - they need to cover up!

I love it here!

I wish I had known about this and in my neighborhood no less! It's so disappointing that this is still an issue for some people and that "nurse ins" even need to be held. Everyone should have the right to eat when and where they need to, even babies. Props to you for supporting their rights :)

The site for the R4i-SDHC flash card posted a video bountiful demo of what emerge to be the R4i running on a Dsi system with the 1.4 firmware. The website presently does R4i not mention whether this is finished through an R4i-SDHC upgrade or ds r4 through new hardware. Even few of them can refund if the product found to be defective. One should call at the R4DS customer service centers for gaining assistance in order to seek good product which will mark best image of the product in the market.

When you place the R4i SDHC or the EZ Flash into your Nintendo Ds it will immediately bring up a R4 DS menu that features three options. The first option is called as ‘Games.’ With this option you can run home brew programs and can also back-up your favorite and most valued R4 card video games. You identify the firmware that was マジコン launched not even a week ago, and deleted flash card compatibility? The video demo was about a retail game ROM, which is not predominantly outstanding, but does serve as verification of flash card compatibility. The second option is called ‘Multimedia.’ With this R4 Card option you can store and listen to MP3′s and also watch movies that are in.dpg format and can read e-books along with taking advantage of other media applications. The third option on the menu is called ‘Book Slot.’

Consumers are always at the safer end if they buy R4 DS Card products from online r4 ds 購入 shops as they provide trial period along with the product. Consumers should be aware that R4i Card backs soft reset function along with moon shell 1.6 supporting Acekard 2i software reset function. We will locate out more about R4i-SDHC as more flash cards pick up on whatever tool is in use..

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
