If you did the nurse-in

how did it go? Any stories for us?
I don't think anyone was participating much in my area? I didn't, we had plans from a month ago we had to do.

Re: If you did the nurse-in

I organized the one here in Tennessee- it was great- the K-9 dog even moved so we could sit where he was hanging out. We were there about two hours and we got lots of great positive feedback- we even had three daddies there in support (that's my DH holding the two signs )

Here's a couple of links if anyone is interested (I'm in the gray shirt- blondish/brownish hair- I make the comment about magazine covers)- on the second one, click the video. . .

Re: If you did the nurse-in

I was at the one in Vegas. It went well. At one point, 2 ladies that worked there walked by and said, "Go moms! I agree with you!" I was happy with just that! But we really just sat there talked, etc. It was nice!

Re: If you did the nurse-in

I went to the PDX one in Oregon. I don't have any pics 'cause I forgot my camera, but it was really fun. There were about 40 mamas plus kiddos there. It was a great experience with mostly positive feedback and good media coverage

Re: If you did the nurse-in

My sister went to the DFW airport one, they were also asked to leave because of lack of a permit . CW33 did a news story on it here.

They are planning to get a permit and go back, I plan to go with them then also

Talking Re: If you did the nurse-in

I wasn't able to go, plus we are no longer nursing- child lead weaning several months ago. But about 15 moms from my area went to the airport. They said it was very nice, they were never asked to leave and no one that they know of gave any negative remarks. They made local news and front page of the business section! Yeah!!!!

Anyone want to see the news clip here it is
