Breastfeeding is in the news.... again. Tomorrow night ABC news is airing a piece about breastfeeding mothers getting harassed for nursing in restaurants. And another mother, this time in Canada, recently got an apology from the city of Ottawa after a lifeguard at the local pool told her to cover up while breastfeeding.
Here in Salt Lake, KSL Newsradio will be talking about the topic on the Nightside Project. One of my college buddies is a host and he's asked me to come on and talk about this from a mother's perspective. I'm not an expert or a lactation consultant. But I am a mom and with my little breastfeeding project, I've been talking to a lot of other moms about this. Hopefully, I can help show that breastfeeding is a totally normal and natural thing. And that breastfeeding mothers should be supported and encouraged, not harassed.
Wish me luck! And call in if you want to weigh in on the issue. You can listen at 102.7 FM or 1160 AM. I should be able to post a link to the podcast tomorrow.
