Pro Breastfeeding

I have seen this in a few places and someone on one of the groups I belong to alerted the group to it.  I find it very powerful!  For all of the people who wonder why people fight for breastfeeding discrimination, the following poem/article says it all.  I am not sure who authored it, but whoever you are, thank-you!

If a woman breastfeeds with her whole breast out of the shirt, there’s someone in the room wishing she would pull the shirt down a little more.

If she pulls her shirt down a little more, there’s someone in the room wishing she would put a blanket over her side boob, or cleavage.

If she blankets her boob, there’s someone wishing she would put the blanket over the baby’s head.

If she blankets her baby, there’s someone wishing she was in the corner.

If she moves to the corner, there’s someone wishing she would face the wall.

If she faces the wall, there’s someone wishing she would leave the room.

Can’t please ’em all, so do what feels right to YOU, I say. But regardless of how you do it, keep nursing, ladies.
