a Baby in Public: What is a Mother to Do?
"Women shouldn't have to choose
between breastfeeding and having a life. They should be able
to go anywhere and do anything, with their baby in tow, and
they should be able to breastfeed their baby whenever and
wherever they happen to be when the baby needs to be fed."
-- Katherine Dettwyler
What to say when confronted about NIP:
"My babies could be tantrumming now instead of being content--which
would you prefer?" -- Karla

In honor of World
Breastfeeding Week, we encourage our members and all breastfeeding
mothers to go out during the week of August 1-7 and breastfeed in public.
We don't mean your regular routine; we mean go out specifically
to nurse in public!!
Why participate in the National Nurse Out?
ProMoM hopes that by promoting the image of breastfeeding
in this way, more people will accept breastfeeding as a natural
everyday occurrence and the normal way to feed infants and
young children. We also want to encourage expecting mothers
by showing them that it is possible to breastfeed in public
without anyone being embarrassed.
