Recently, there have been a lot of stories in the national and local news about mothers being illegally harassed for nursing their babies in public (“NIP”). The latest one involved a Twitter exchange between a breastfeeding mom and a Delta Airlines Public Relations employee.
While we think it is so incredibly important that these types of incidences are highlighted and spoken about, we also believe it can paint an incorrect picture that if you nurse your baby in public, you’d better be ready for a fight. So we thought we’d seek out some positive experiences mamas have had feeding their little ones while out and about - below are a few of the responses we received. For every woman that may be made to feel uncomfortable for NIP, it is our greatest hope that there are 100 that receive smiles, nods, and even an occasional high five.
