The nation's biggest display of public breastfeeding is set for this summer. - Kim Hays
We proudly support the Great Nurse-In! I breastfeed my daughter and love to support our breastfeeding moms!
What is the Great Nurse-In?
A gathering August 4, 2012 on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building to raise awareness about breastfeeding in public! The goal is to normalize nursing for today's society and future generations by promoting public breastfeeding.
August 4, 2012 - 9 am to 4 pm
U.S. Capitol Building - West Lawn
We checked out the Facebook page and according to Rachel Papantonakis, "there have been too many news stories lately about women being told they can't feed their babies in places where they are legally allowed to do so, and personal accounts from friends who have been chastised for nursing in public or haven't even tried for fear of being told not to. The time has come for this to end. We'll gather together, breastfeeding moms and supporters united, on the U.S. Capitol's West Lawn for the day and normalize nursing. All are welcome - nursers, non-nursers, men, women, children."
The Great Nurse-In wants to:
- Promote Laws that allow women to breastfeed in public places
- Educate others to help them understand breastfeeding is natural and normal. It's no different from other feeding methods.
- Make breastfeeding a common sight to encourage future generations to breastfeed their children.
