Breastfeeding in Public

Even though I have not yet breastfed a baby, I feel very passionate about breastfeeding, its myriad benefits for momma and baby, and about helping to change the attitudes toward it in this country. Several of my favorite birth bloggers have posted this video recently, and I think it's a beautiful representation of the normalcy of breastfeeding:

After our child is born, I plan to breastfeed him or her whenever, wherever, and for as long as it works for us, no matter who is around. I'm having some mild anxiety about getting negative reactions from strangers, particularly on airplanes and in restaurants. And God forbid I post a photo of me feeding my baby on my Facebook page--I might get my account deleted!
