Every morning I wake up and sift through what the media have to say about breastfeeding just in case there is anything Lactivist newsworthy. There is plenty of coverage, but most of it is about bad things that have happened – mothers thrown out of cafes, been told to breastfeed in the toilet, told they are disgusting………
Enough is enough! Let’s tip the balance in the direction of the positive!
I don’t think hearing about terrible things that have happened because a mother decided to feed her baby breastmilk straight from the breast is going to help new mums feel confident about breastfeeding – what do you think?
Nice things do happen – there is a wonderful story of a lady who was given chocolate whilst breastfeeding in a restaurant on Lactivist.net and below it lots of positive breastfeeding in public stories that people have shared.
Lactivist will be focussing on the good things about breastfeeding for a while. The nice things that people say, the way that breastfeeding makes you feel.
