I'm not a fashionista -- but as a new mom, I have a new opinion to share of what should be on the hot fashion list... my new campaign: Breastfeeding is Fashionable.
It seems like public breast feeding has been all in the news lately -- whether it is appropriate or "gross." I rarely stick my spoon in the pot of controversy on this blog, but this time I am giving my two (short) cents. Here it goes:
Breastfeeding is natural. Breastfeeding is healthy. Breastfeeding is not a dirty word. When you deny a woman the right to feed her child, you are standing in the way of her delivering health to her child. Women don't feed their babies in public for attention. When your baby needs something, you do what you have to do -- they are the priority, not whether or not some stranger is comfortable with the situation. Yes, I do my best to be as discreet as possible. Yes, I have a nursing cover and use it when in close proximity to people. Yes, I prefer to feed my baby in private. But here is the raw of it -- I am not ashamed of my body and the beautiful way that God designed it to work. Do I consider myself a modest person? Yes. Do I believe you can be modest and breastfeed in public? Absolutely.
With that said...
These picture were not taken for the purpose of my new "Breastfeeding is Fashionable" campaign... but M was hungry & it is what ended up happening. I set off to take pictures showing off my new kicks from blowfish shoes. I'm looooving my hazmittens! So fun, so comfortable, so hip (if I do say so myself), and fit true to size. You can love you a pair too! Get them in grey or black flannel (or both!) Use code BFWILD15 for 15% off your next order!
p.s. I'm working on a "Breastfeeding is Fashionable" blog button... all you fashion and/or mommy bloggers out there, look for it soon.
