Breastfeeding Here and There. Breastfeeding Everywhere

As I sit here typing my almost three year old is sitting on my lap having “babas.”  What do you call breast milk in your home?  I’ve been meditating on this post since I saw the clip from Wendy Williams’ interview with Alyssa Milano.

I considered sharing the video but having made an effort not to support anything to do with WW since I first learned of her trying to shame breastfeeding mothers I decided not to at this time.  I think the segment was very powerful.  I have always loved Alyssa Milano.  She was my first girl crush way back when she was Samantha Micelli.  I adore that she did not stand down from WW’s pressure.  If you haven’t seen here are some of my favorite Alyssa statements:

“But biologically, they’re not made for sexual things. That’s what we’ve done to them.” (In response to WW saying breasts are fun bags.)
“You’re lucky the baby’s not here. I’d whip ’em out right here and feed her on your show.”

I’ve had more positive experiences than negative experiences when it comes to public breastfeeding.  I am blessed.  I am also pretty oblivious, so I might have just missed the negative ones.  I will however feed my child anywhere we are.  Your permission and acceptance is not necessary.

    We simply call it “mommy milk” and I too loved the interview. I think we need to see more celebrities standing up for breastfeeding but I also think it’s important to do it in this context of real conversation where thoae who are negative about it can have a face-to-face with supporters rather than slinging mud at each other on the internet. (And as for the Seuss rhyme, I’ve nursed my babies all those places and more!)

    Chloe calls it the ninnie. I was appalled at Wendy when Alyssa was on there, but happy Alyssa served Wendy and handled herself well.

    Any negative comments I received the 2.5 years I nursed, I ignored.
