Suck It!

Now I'm not a prude or anything, but I'll admit that sometimes I'm a little put off by breastfeeding in public.  I don't have a problem with it per se, but some mothers are almost a little militant about it.  If they want to feed their offspring they simply pop a breast out and latch the tyke onto it.

Heaven forbid you say anything about it.  Hell hath no fury like a pissed off new mother.  You might as well have used the C-word....and I don't mean cesarean!

Along the same vein though, heaven forbid that the mother show a little modesty.  I don't think removing yourself to a bathroom is appropriate....oh, and eeeww.  Going to another room altogether is a bit much also.  There are simple breastfeeding covers that do a good job at it.

SarasStitches has put together a "cute" baby item that I'm thinking was designed for the militant mothers.  I think it is awesome for the shock factor alone, but in my mind all it is doing is adding a little smirky inappropriateness to something that I already find inappropriate.  Now if this was a crocheted breastfeeding wrap with a similar design, I'd be more inclined to like it.

Basically, I approve the delivery even if I don't approve of the message.....
