Have you noticed more women nursing in public lately? If you live in Northern California, you may need to check your eyes. That woman who's been nursing her baby on the park bench for hours just may be a cardboard cut out.
A new campaign to normalize breastfeeding in public has begun in Marin County. Life-size photographs of women breastfeeding their babies have been mounted on cardboard and strategically placed around the county. The Marin Breastfeeding Coalition created the campaign and each cut-out is affixed with a sign that reads, "When breastfeeding is accepted, it won't be noticed." You can view a gallery of the photographs here. Awesome.
Annie at PhD in Parenting posted this TV ad from Australia on nursing in public.
And thanks to Andi at Mama Knows Breast for finding this PSA.
When you nurse your baby in public, you are helping to normalize breastfeeding. No one wants to eat in a bathroom.
