A little lactavism...
Our bass player Josh and his partner Morgan were standing near the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding display listening to comments from people checking out the art which had varying degrees of modesty. One couple in their 50's passed and had this conversation:
Man: What's this all about?
Woman: I don't know, but there are a lot of titties hanging out.
But, you know, I think that's exactly the point of the event. Just to get people talking about and questioning their own comfort with seeing breasts used to feed babies. If I had not been so encouraged by several friends, family members, and Cameron, I doubt I would have been successful if it were just me committed to breastfeeding. As it was, I'm so glad I had the opportunity to nourish my babes in the healthiest way possible. Like another shirt said at the event- "Breast milk- never been recalled".
