It is World Breastfeeding Week!
I love this week because people like Olivia Wilde promote how beautiful breastfeeding can be…
I mean this picture IS beautiful but really….who breastfeeds without a diaper?? Pretty sure my baby would pee and poop all over me. May not happen to her since she is a celebrity and all…and since she IS a celebrity I am sure that is why her boobs look like that!
I genuinely applaud her for putting breastfeeding out there!
Breastfeeding in public can be intimidating. You never know what is appropriate and what is not. I personally like to cover up in public.
It is about me-not anyone else. To cover, I love the Udder Cover!

Now, I have to tell you a story:
I was recently at the pool with my two older kids. I was holding my baby close to me, as he was upset. It could have appeared from a distance that I was nursing my baby. I wasn’t. But who cares if I was, right?? I have the right to nurse my baby just as much as the person next to me had the right to eat her sandwich. (In fact, I could nurse much more tasteful than she was chowing down on her sandwich with mayo dripping down her chin!) I overheard someone say “I cannot believe she is nursing her baby right here!” WHAT?!?? Does she want me to sit on the toilet to nurse my baby?!?
Society needs a reality check!
While breastfeeding may not be for everyone…lets rally and support moms who do breastfeed!
