Re: 20/20 on BF on Friday

Here's the link about the story from the 20/20 website.

http://abcnews.go.com/2020/story?id=2188066&page=1

Looks like it should be ok. Pro breastfeeding, anti making bottle feeding mothers feel guilty about it, pro public breastfeeding and pro getting employers to have pump rooms for nursing mothers.

Oh, thanks for the link. It does look like it might be good -they even have a pic of a woman breastfeeding on the page! LOL, maybe I'll watch it after all! I'm sure they'll be a nice big discussion on here afterwards!

It doesn't look to be negative towards BFing at all. But I am sure they will have a dissenting opinion, they wouldn't look "fair" without it.

That girls expression beside the nursing mom on the subway (or whatever that was) made me want to choke her. Other than that it was a pretty good segment.

I thought it was OK. I did kind of see their point- I am a total bfing advocate, and even I was kind of annoyed by those ads. But other than that it was OK.

Did anyone else catch that guy looking through the window as the woman nursed her toddler?? DH and I both saw him, we weren't sure if he was shocked by her breastfeeding or just wanting to be on TV

I watched it...and I was proud of how they handled it. It was more pro beastfeeding than anything. Hopefully it will open some mamas eyes that breastfeeding is bestfeeding!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 20/20 on BF on Friday

I'm so sad I missed it! I adore nursing in public when a man or woman stare at you trying to figure out whatever (baby's age, gender, what you're doing, etc) and then their face when they realize you are nursing. HAHAHAHA

I will however nurse in the car or somewhere more comfortable if I have on a nursing tank to where my whole breast but my nipple/areola is showing. Ds's head doesn't cover all of it yet and I'm short.
