Fellas, really. Just stop and take a moment to think about what she’s doing for your child. Grief is the last thing you should give her.

It breaks my heart to hear about women being pushed into covering or bottle feed their infant while out of the house to make someone else comfortable. Everyone else can eat where and whenever a baby has that same right. The last person a nursing mother needs a fight with is father of the child she is nourishing. You need to be her loudest cheerleader! Period!

Black Breastfeeding Week | August 25 to 31, 2014

August 25 through 31 marks Black Breastfeeding Week. As anyone who has seen me (and my boobs) knows, I am a huge advocate of giving our children a head start with breast milk whenever possible. Join the celebration on Twitter and Facebook by sharing your breastfeeding tips, triumphs, photos, and questions. And check out the #WellnessWed chat today at 2pm ET.

Let’s take a moment to celebrate Model/Mom Ashley Nicole - who recently posted a photo showing her son latched on to her right breast inside of their home. She included the caption, “Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called… Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful.” And was immediately raked over burning coals by the general public for doing so… Thank you Ashley Nicole! #LetsTalkBreastfeeding #BFing #BlkBFing #Breastfeeding

Join us TONIGHT on Twitter at 9-10pm ET with @MomsRising, @Support_ROSE and @USBC on helping black moms reach bf goals. Follow us and #BlkBfing on Twitter to comment and ask questions.
