Thumbs up please email babytalk!!!

the cover of the new issue of baby talk magazine?
how great is that? i already emailed them a letter saying thanks for showing breastfeeding on their cover. that is rare for mainstream mags to do,no?
anyways if you get a chance please email them to say thanks,too we need to support them for doing things like this b/c we already know they will get lots of negative letters for it!!

their email is:letters@babytalk.com


thought id add this link:
http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/07/27/nur....ap/index.html

one mom shredded the magazine b/c she didnt want her kids to see it!! WTH?!?!?!

Re: please email babytalk!!!

My Dh saw the cnn article...let me see if I can remember the word he used to describe it...oh well I forgot. It was like "ridiculous" but stronger. He was so shocked that anyone would think of such an image (a bfing mom) as inappropriate for anyone to see. I will email them.

Re: please email babytalk!!!

My sister called me and told me about this, I am still waiting on mine to arrive in the mail! I can't wait to see it. I think it is so great that they put that on the cover. I once met a girl who was pregnant and she saw me BFing DS (he was covered under a blanket) and asked me what I was doing. When I told her I was breastfeeding, she asked me what that meant! I showed her and she thought that it was the coolest thing she had ever seen. I was in shock that there are actually people out there who don't even know about breastfeeding! Maybe if more magazines and celebrities would promote breastfeeding, we could fix the lack of information/support problem associated with breastfeeding!

Email sent! Why can't we get past breasts being sexual objects in this country? They are meant to feed babies, not to get shaken in front of men at strip clubs.
Its such a shame.
