Workplace Pumping at Risk in this Election

Workplace Pumping Law

The focus of the Nationwide Nurse-In is on breastfeeding and the law. We avoid taking political stances unless they directly affect breastfeeding law. We have been trying very hard to not get involved in #Election2016 because of how polarizing it has become.

 

Unfortunately, breastfeeding law is at risk in this election and we feel it's important that all our followers know in what way.

 

The Affordable Care Act has been at the heart of many political debates this year. 

An Open Letter to Myself About Weaning

The bonding is the most magical thing I have ever experienced. I stare into her eyes and she stares right back into mine. I play with her tiny hands and marvel at how anything could be that perfect. 

Even as she gets older, bigger, and heavier; nursing her is still my favorite thing. There is no tantrum or boo boo that can’t be solved with a little bit of Mommy's milk. The way it has bonded us and soothed us both, has been more powerful than I ever expected.

I am THAT young mom

I'm the one you gave the dirty look to at the grocery store. 

I'm the one you pointed to while "whispering" to your daughter, " Don't have a baby that young."

I'm the one you look at with pity. 

I'm the one who you told "Don't even try breastfeeding; it's too hard when you're a young mom."

 

I'm the one who doesn't care about your opinions about my age. 

 

 It may surprise you to know that I had a midwife attended, med free, delayed cord clamping, immediate skin to skin, and immediate latching, birth. 

How to Plan a Nurse-In After a Discrimination Incident

1. Create a public event on Facebook. 

 

2. Share your story in the description.

 

3. Add a cover photo. 

 

4. Set a time and date, it's best to do it within a week or two of the incident. 

 

5.  If it's a particularly volatile situation, consider hosting your nurse-in in front of the business on public property. Businesses are legally allowed to ask you to leave if you are trespassing on their property or causing a disturbance with your presence. However, they may not ask you to leave because of breastfeeding (exception Idaho). 

Shocking New Study About Public Breastfeeding

 

People who don't want to see public breastfeeding may not be able to "just turn away." 

A hormone produced during breastfeeding may cause temporary atrophy of neck muscles.

In a new study published this week, researchers have found that a hormone called Protapriliá is released when a woman is actively nursing a child. This hormone can be detected up to 30 feet from where a mother is sitting. 

They Are Called Breasts

Imagine the unthinkable happens. Your child is sexually assaulted. Did you know that teaching them the correct anatomical names for body parts can make a huge difference in reporting the assault?

Knowing the correct names has also been shown to reduce a child's risk of being a victim of sexual assault.

If a child knows the anatomically correct names for their body parts, they are empowered. In the process of teaching them the proper names they will ask questions and gain knowledge about their parts, just as they do when teaching about eyes and ears.
