The guys at the sawmill will love this!

Breastfeeding rooms hidden in health care law

Companies with 50 or more employees will have to provide breast feeding rooms for employees. This will be a real winner at saw mills, welding shops, and other places with few or no female employees. If they complain, they're probably have it mandated that they hire breastfeeding mothers so that the rooms don't go to waste.

Heaven forbid ONE person be rude to you-- assuming you weren't being rude first.

Because, you know, a fifty-fifty chance of folks being nice wouldn't be an improvement....right?

Women across America have felt uncomfortable in public situations when breastfeeding their children.

...I fear to ask, how exactly where they doing it? If you've got your chest hanging out in public, OF COURSE you're going to be uncomfortable. Use a blanket-- or one of those cool nursing setups that are basically a blanket+ Velcro-- and you're good. Really shy, like me? So pump and feed baby. Blanket works great, then, since (unlike my darling Kit) breast pumps don't grab the blanket off your chest.

The funny thing? Most of the sources I've seen make a differentiation between BREASTFEEDING and BOTTLE FEEDING BREAST MILK.
