Breastfeeding is a personal challenge for each mother and child. Some get it right away, some don’t. Some have a milk supply that flows like a fountain, and some of us have to work really hard at keeping it up. 1,447 more words
I'm lucky enough to live in a region that is largely supportive of breastfeeding rights. I entered into this scene that was set up, fought for, petitioned and won over by many an oppressed and frustrated mother before me. Still yes, harassment in public happens far too often, but in my city of Houston we enjoy regular breastfeeding-friendly awareness events, local support by way of writers and sponsors and vendors and women's healthcare workers, and lots of options for La Leche League meetings and other in-person connections for new mothers. This is NOT the case everywhere. Some states and cities and countries need more help than others kickstarting the official protections of breastfeeding families.
