And what amazing friends they are!
As the story spreads of Bill Maher’s less-than-supportive remarks about womens’ right to feed their babies in public view, more and more bloggers are picking it up and spreading the word. I wanted to make a list here of those bloggers who have sought to further the discussion and bring this issue to the forefront. Bill Maher may feel this is a silly, narcissistic cause, but those of us who have been there know better. Breastfeeding is not just a parenting choice, but a serious health issue. Given the state of things today I really don’t think we can afford to shun and embarrass those trying to do the healthiest thing possible for their babies.
