MA! I’m gonna be on TV

I am going to be on Fox news tonight at 5 or 5:30 talking about the the issue i posted about earlier this week being told to not breastfeed.

THe discovery green people had a policy of making sure that breastfeeding mothers were told to cover up if someone complained. They wouldnt demand it, but they would “request” it because they were bothering other patrons. This had happened more than once at their grounds and moms that could not show up to our interview today were with me in spirit because they were also told to not breastfeed there.

Both the other mom that this happened to a couple of weeks ago and I showed up and we were interviewd independantly and then they interviewed the director and another lady that went out to support us from the Breastfeeding Alliance. The director was interviewd and apologized and said he would put the breastfeeding is welcomed here stickers on the grounds.

In such a short amount of time I got something done about this cause that I care about.

  1. Good for you! Really, I think one of the biggest barriers to successful breastfeeding is that moms feel uncomfortable doing it out in the world. This is such important activism.
