Re: please email babytalk!

thanks for the link! i was just on another message board i visit, and they were debating the article and the magazine cover. it's so hard to see mothers who say things like, "they make pumps and bathrooms for a reason" i will let babytalk know how much i appreciate them showing a beautiful picture of a beautiful baby receiving the very best from his mother!

I did my post! Do you think it is alright if I went to babytalk.com and did it there or should I do it at both places?

I already had a friend email me an article written how they have had the most negative responces in the history of their free magazine! What? I must live on another planet than the majority of people out there in the world. I think it is an absoutly beautiful picture. I am 100% comfortable with seeing babies eat on the cover of a magazine!

Thanks for the post. I'm gonna email too... bravo to a main stream magazine!

And btw, I have three beautiful happy and healthy vegan boys!

Re: please email babytalk!

I just e-mailed them as well. It really IS important that we take the time to do this. I have bottle fed one baby and breastfed the other, so i can truely see both sides of the issue. That is the most important thing - that BOTH sides of the issue be well represented. It is sad that breastfeeding is seen as unusual, but that can change if we support positive images of breastfeedign mothers.
