#BoobsForBernie is currently trending. What does that mean for the average American breastfeeder? It means a photo of a mother feeding her child is making national headlines. It means the people that have been working hard to normalize breastfeeding can smile today. A woman fed her child in public and wasn’t asked to leave or cover up; quite the opposite in fact. The encouragement in this instance has been abundant.
In case you haven’t read the headlines Margaret Ellen Bradford … Keep Reading!!!
Even A-list moms can’t catch a break at the most glamorous night of the year. The Academy Awards have green rooms decked to the nines, rooms full of swag that are decorated beautifully, a red carpet matched by no other; but when a celebrity needs to go pump they are given the bathroom.
Grammy winning songwriter, and Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss gave birth to a baby boy on January 6, 2016. She has since shared a few photos of her nursing journey on Instagram. She shared this short video of her pumping in the car prior to going into the restaurant for dinner with her baby. While every mother should absolutely be supported in nursing anytime, anywhere if Kandi’s comfort level involves pumping to use a bottle in public … Keep Reading!!!
We live in an era where how you look is everything, especially in Hollywood. The pressure for a new mom to “bounce back” immediately after birth is ridiculous. Haylie Duff was not immune to feeling the pressure but came out this week to say that working on her body wasn’t near as important as breastfeeding her daughter.
Haylie gave birth to her daughter, Ryan Eva, 9-months-ago and says she still doesn’t feel like she “looks amazing”. But rather than allow … Keep Reading!!!
A few days ago we posted the Joey Salads video where he had a woman pretend to breastfeed in public, to see what the reactions would be. Joey has taken it a step further this time. A model in a low cut shirt sits right next to a breastfeeding mom. The people who stop to comment on the mom’s “indecency” are not expecting the confrontations that follow.
Here’s hoping this direct comparison opens some eyes and people can see … Keep Reading!!!
The internet is full of cute pictures of kids copying the world around them. It’s how they learn. So many of those are kids feeding dolls or siblings. None of these seem to cause issue, until a young boy pretends to breastfeeding his baby sibling.
Breastfeeding Mama Talk posted an adorable photo that a mom had shared with them and the internet erupted in a firestorm of misplaced hatred and disgust.
We live in an age where when our children … Keep Reading!!!
Because no one knew how this would turn out; Joey Salads, best known for his “social experiment” and prank videos on Youtube, tackled public breastfeeding reactions in his newest video. Perhaps the results surprised him, but for most moms who’ve nursed in public it’s exactly what we expected. It just serves as another example of what nursing moms have to endure in public; the attempts to shame women for feeding their children.
Unfortunately, only a few comments later, … Keep Reading!!!
State Rep. Amanda Bouldin (D) took to Facebook to express her opposition to a proposed bill in New Hampshire that would make it a misdemeanor for a woman to expose her nipples. Bouldin strongly recommends the bill be completely scrapped, or at the very least an exemption for breastfeeding mothers be added.
The very least you could do is protect a mother’s right to FEED her child.
While Bouldin later corrected herself and admitted the bill does contain an exemption … Keep Reading!!!
Good news for moms serving in the US Army. There will be no more pumping milk in the bathroom! On November 10, 2015 they released an update for their new policy regarding breastfeeding soldiers.
It was only September, of this year, that the Army came out with a breastfeeding policy, making them the last service branch to do so. The original policy made strides to help nursing soldiers but left a lot to be desired. It specified that soldiers be … Keep Reading!!!

When the photographer and Santa were completely on board they went for it.
When Ashley Kaidel‘s son got hungry, while they were at a restaurant, she did what mother’s do – she fed him. Of course, because she did so with your breasts people start staring. Rather than feel shamed she decided to stare right back. This is when her dining partner took a photo of her, a photo which she posted to Facebook along with a post about normalizing breastfeeding. The statement she made, both within her writing and her photo … Keep Reading!!!
