It's a Nurse In!


by Sarah Bailey, Guest Blogger

Have you ever wanted to attend a nurse in?  The first time I heard about a nurse in after I started breastfeeding, my curiosity was piqued.  If yours is, please join us Saturday, January 5 at 3:00 at Parkway Place Mall in the Hollister area.   
RSVP here.
Nursling or not, your support is needed and welcome.  This nurse in has been organized a response to one mother's recent experience while   nursing in public.  She sat on a bench outside of a    Hollister in a Texas mall to breastfeed her baby. A manager of the Hollister store created a scene by yelling and telling her she could not nurse her baby in front of their store.  Even though she knew her rights, she was humiliated while she discretely nursed.   If we all work together, we can help raise awareness of rights and hopefully prevent this from happening to other moms who choose to breastfeed in public.

Come on out and enjoy the fun on Saturday while promoting a mother's right to nurse in public at the same time. Chances are you and baby will make new friends!  Events are being held nationally and are open to anyone.
