 Episode 192      Season 6

I job is to educate, inform and advocate for the breastfeeding family.  One of my other goals I set out to accomplish was to not preach to the choir only, so to speak, but to educate everyone that is outside of the immediate breastfeeding world and just doesn’t understand the whole breastfeeding thing.   This list  includes employers, other employees who may not understand why you take breaks to pump.  I want to get this information out to retails stores and community leaders.  My belief is that moms should be able to breastfeed wherever and whenever they feel they need to, without fears of being criticized or kicked out of places or stared down. I know we have laws on these issues, but people can, and still do ignore the law. Co-workers still snicker at moms when they go to pump.  They still feel like they are “getting away with something.”  Of course, this just cracks me up.  I dare them to follow any breastfeeding/pumping mom around for a few days and then look me in the face and tell me they are getting away with something.  For goodness sakes people!
We need to make breastfeeding much more visible, with moms breastfeeding all over, in many places when they are out and about.  The more it is seen, the easier it will be to  normalize breastfeeding as part of the fabric of everyday life.  A breastfeeding mother should not stand out in a crowd, she should be just another person in the room.  We are still working on becoming a much more breastfeeding and family friendly society and I aim to be one small part in a positive movement to do so. I would also like to thank everyone one who does understand the breastfeeding mom and tells her that she is doing a great job.
