Where's my shawl?

mom was reading today on Baby Talk magazine that 57% of Americans disapprove of mothers breastfeeding their babies in public, and 72% find it inappropriate when images of nursing moms are shown on TV.

Coming from a country where this is a nonissue, mom went on to investigate ways to feed her future offspring in public without offending the delicate sensibilities of passersby. Though there are some fancy wraps and cover-ups out there, the most common model sold in major baby product stores is something that surely makes your little one look like he has just flew in from Afghanistan.



I don't know about you, but I think there's something really wrong when watching the type of shows we have on everyday TV is fine, but having a mom nurse in public is considered offensive and even indecent.

  • Even pornographic.

    Of course, breastfeeding can increase intelligence and health. We don't really need more intelligent people in America -- it's not like we're competing against India or China or something -- nor do we need cheaper healthcare, because we're not competing against the Japanese car makers ...

  • Love how it makes Mom look like a member of al Qaeda. Or like we're smuggling in children. "No officer, that's not a child under my shirt."
    Or ask me about the woman who nursed her THREE YEAR OLD on a crowded bus at Disney World in front of me and my mom. The child could chew steak, for crying out loud!
