Josias is almost 2 and he continues to love his milky. Of late, he's taken to creating chants like: Milky! Milky! Yummy! Yummy! Or sometimes, it's simply a huge grin along with shouts of: Boobies! Boobies!
I have never, not one time, received a negative comment. I haven't even noticed anyone looking at me askance. In fact, on a cross-county flight, I once received congratulations from the man sitting next to me for breasting feeding my son for so long.
There may have been those who thought I should go elsewhere, but no one said so. I read all these stories about mamas who are told to cover up, leave or make baby wait, and I get incensed. I want to support them and all the mamas and babies out there. I want to do something about it.
So, here's what I'm doing today: sharing some good news. All the NIPing, all the blogging, all the Nurse-Ins, etc. have made the world a better place. Josias and I are NIPers extraordinaires and the world has embraced us!
Do you feel your Nursing in Public has been supported, even celebrated? Please share your successes!
