Boobie Lovin' Month!
The Leaky Boob: An awesome blog for all mama's who breastfeed, plan to breastfeed or have in the past. They also have a fabulous support group FaceBook page.
Why African Babies Don't Cry By J. Claire K. Niala. A very touching story filled with prospective.
The Normalizing Nursing in Public League (NNIPL): Another fabulous FaceBook based support group that originally started when a young lady was kicked out of a buffet restaurant for breastfeeding her child. She fought back and NNIPL was born.
The Milk Truck: A fabulous project in the works that will initiate a literal movement every time a nursing mother faces adversity while trying to feed their child in public. Unfortunately (at least for now), this will only be available in Pittsburgh, PA. If you live nearby, you can follow them on FaceBook and/or Twitter and be apart of them rollin' movement. If only I lived closer... You can follow them anyway, just to show your support and get cool updates on their progress towards getting the truck rollin'.
I'm sure there are plenty more great supportive groups, stories, etc. out there. I just ran out of time. (sh! big party to get ready for!) If you know of some that you would love to add to this list, please do post them. I don't have many "followers" but I do have many lurkers (I heart my lurkers) and you never know. The person that needs your info the most, might see it and be more than grateful for it!
I leave you with a pic of the milk truck... or rather a sketch of the milk truck as we hope it will eventually be:
