Over the last few days, I've been asked to comment about Mayor Bloomberg's Latch On NYC initiative, which aims to increase the number of breastfeeding mothers in the New York City area.
I won't go into all the gory details about how I feel about it, because I did so on HLN News Now with Katherine Stone from Postpartum Progress. Unfortunately, that link is a short clip of a lively five-or-so minute conversation we had, but it gives you an idea of how I feel.
Then they asked me to write an Op-Ed piece in which I got all angry and told Mayor Bloomberg to get his hands out of my bra.
When I calmed down a little, I figured out what really bothered me about the whole thing. And really, what's always bothered me about this whole Breast is best stuff.
This coming from a mom of four who breastfed for just over seven years.
Yes. You can bet I counted.
