Nursing In Public (N.I.P.) is a helpful way to change our culture from a bottle/formula feeding culture into a breastfeeding culture. New moms often feel shy about nursing in public, but keep in mind that:
- You don’t know who you will be inspiring. The waitress who serves you today may be a mother tomorrow.
- Children who see nursing as a normal activity will remember that when they are having children.
- There are people who get worried or offended, but they need to learn to get over it. Victorian Americans used to be afraid to show an ankle. Who cares about showing an ankle now?
- Babies are born to breastfeed and moms need to be able to be in public. Q.E.D.
