Let’s talk about BREASTS baby!

Let’s talk about As, Bs, and Cs (probably double Ds).

Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be.

Let’s talk about BREASTS….

More specifically let’s talk about breastfeeding.

Disclaimer: All of these thoughts are of a twenty-something year old childless vodka lover, who is very much a free spirit and doesn’t really gave a shit about the small things in life. You may either find it delightfully humorous or highly offensive. Either way, I plan on putting my two cents in about it.

August was proclaimed as National Breastfeeding Month back in 2011 by the United States Breastfeeding Committee. Yeah, you read that right – National Breastfeeding Month.

Slowly, I’m trying to remember when and why breastfeeding became such a hot topic issue. It’s never really been a big deal for me. I worked at Babies R Us for heaven’s sake where whipping out the chesticle was a daily occurrence. If I didn’t see a boob, the day wasn’t right. I was a live-in nanny and the sweet mom breastfed her baby boy like a champ.

The law is clear in Texas, you can breastfeed your child in any location; what the law doesn’t address is you being covered or uncovered.

Texas Breastfeeding Laws
Courtesy of National Conference of State Legislatures

Sec. 165.002.  RIGHT TO BREAST-FEED. A mother is entitled to breast-feed her baby in any location in which the mother is authorized to be.

Added by Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 600, Sec. 1, eff. Aug. 28, 1995. 

Here’s my deal and it’s about to get real ugly….Stop taking videos to prove a point because you will always come across someone who is afraid of an exposed boob. Stop reporting insensitive people because they don’t know how to just ignore the boob.

Ignorant people will always exists in the world, it’s how you react to them that will really make a difference. I can’t even begin to imagine what it must feel like to be told that you can’t feed your baby, but it happens. Feed your baby, enjoying being a woman who has that liberty, and just let it go. If you’re asked to cover up, don’t make a big stink about it with your husband in the background (I doubt that woman will find my blog, but if she does…yes you and your husband need to stop it right not). What you can do is take that cute baby blanket and throw it over that boob to satisfy the appetite of that precious baby of yours.

With that, I leave you with this nugget of wisdom, which I think we should all be worried about working on….

    I won’t make a big stink about it, but I also won’t cover up. Don’t like it? Don’t look. That said, I’m not gonna go get all my boobalicious momma friends and stage a nurse-in if someone tells me to cover up. FL law (paraphrased) says I can take off my shirt and feed my kid if I want. And, seriously, it’s like eleventy-seven degrees out. I’m NOT gonna put on a blanket.

      I agree and more power to you. The issue is be comfortable in your rights to feed your child in any way you see fit and not cause the unnecessary stink.
