I was sad to duck out of LLL today just as so many of you were arriving and the conversation was just getting going — darn preschool!

In light of our conversation about breastfeeding in public, I pulled together some great images and videos of breastfeeding in public that I thought you all might enjoy.

A postcard from Lesotho.  The caption on this postcard reads"Mosotho woman weaving a basket".  The breastfeedin part is seen as so normal, it's not even mentioned.

I just love this postcard from Lesotho on the right! It depicts a mother nursing an older child as she weaves a basket in a marketplace.  The caption on this postcard reads “Mosotho woman weaving a basket”. The breastfeeding part is seen as so normal, it’s not even mentioned — it just fades into the background.  How fabulous would it be if nursing just faded into the background here!

Here are some other depictions of breastfeeding in different cultures, a nursing in public comic, and a blog about why nursing in public matters.

And something super important for all of you breastfeeding Hoosiers to know about. Indiana’s Breastfeeding in public law:

Not withstanding any other law, a woman may breastfeed her child anywhere the woman has a right to be.  Source: Indiana Code 16-35-6-1 Chapter 6, Sec. 7
