Awareness

I just saw this and thought I'd post a link.

There's a campaign in Marin County, California where cardboard cutouts of breastfeeding moms are placed around the county with a little note that says, "When breastfeeding is accepted, it won't be noticed."

I think the campaign is very creative. Other things I like about it include the eye contact it shows and that not all the breastfeeding children are tiny babies. Toddlers are breastfed, too!

  4. What an awesome quote about breastfeeding!! I found your blog a couple of weeks ago and love it! I noticed on your Friday Fill-Ins you are playing D & D on Saturday!?! I never would have guessed. My husband loves the game, but doesn’t get to play as much as he once did due to his busy schedule. He mainly plays on-line these days. Hope you guys have fun on your journey!

  7. What a great idea! I am going to forward this to our local La Leche League. They recently contacted local businesses about displaying a breastfeeding friendly sign in windows. The cutouts are the next step....
