"I have often thought of carrying a cover around with me so that if someone objects to my NIP I can say 'Oh, I am sorry. How inconsiderate of me,' and hand the cover to them. If they ask, 'What is this for?' I will tell them it is for their face." ~Danielle
"This cracks me up because this week my 4 yr old told me he thought cows should wear 'gutter covers' since their udders are ugly. I asked him why? He said, 'They just are mom.' So I asked him if I should keep my booboos covered (I nurse openly in front of him all the time of course) and he said, 'No mom - your booboos aren't ugly like gutters are. Yours are pretty.' ...The minds of children that are yet to be tainted by our culture see things very differently don't they?" ~Rebecca
