Today is the National Nurse-In. Josiah and I will be at the Delta counter at our airport. I don't know if anyone else in town will be there, but we will be! I did sent out a few emails to the BF community but got no definite responses. I wish there had been more lead time, but it is what it is. For those who haven't heard, the Nurse-In was organized in response to a breastfeeding mom being removed from a Delta flight for failing to nurse "discreetly" (i.e. she refused to use the blanket the flight attendent brought her). I wouldn't use the damn blanket either. Seeing as Josiah and I will be flying several times next year (Mexico in January, San Francisco in February for starters) I certainly don't want to be harrassed while feeding my baby. I can't wait to get to the airport this morning. I've been working on my sign. Perhaps it'll say something provocative like "The boobs at Delta are offensive, not mine!" (okay, I won't make a sign like that, but part of me wants to) My sign will probably say "Delta unfair to nursing mothers" Anyway, kudos to all my Dear Readers who plan to attend the Nurse-In in your city.
