Creative Nurse-in at University of Texas

I just received an email about this dinner for moms and their nursing babies on the University of Texas campus. What a wonderful idea! Be sure to watch the video.

I don't have an exact count, but so far, at least 20 people have already written to Fred Meyer with their comments about my story. I've been getting phone calls and emails from moms all over town and the story is already spreading beyond my personal network (gotta love the Internet).

Y'all are AWESOME!!

Im sorry that I will not be able to join the nurse in, I am in fact, from NC. I read a story about what happened with you on another blog and wrote to Fred-Meyer, without specifying my place of residence. I applaud your taking a stand and know that you will give more women inspiration to do the same. I wish I could join you all. Just wanted you to know I wrote them. I hope you are able to get them to change their policy. I hope you sue them actually, but thats completely up to you. Good luck!

I sent a letter on your behalf.

I've been pushing for a statute that would protect nursing mothers in Nebraska. Maybe next year.

Keep up the good work.

I am mailing my letter tomorrow morning. It is sad that this is even an issue.
