Breast feeding continued and continued

Oh yes, you knew they just won’t let this story die. :)

Once again, the banned breastfeeding woman of Ann Arbor hit the papers. Her name came up because city counsel member Joan Lowenstein now wants to introduce a new city ordinance to allow women to breastfeed “anywhere in public” according to the Ann Arbor News. I guess Lowenstein was spurred on by the incident at the YMCA.

Apparently, the state laws aren’t clear enough for the city and the ordinance would allow people to go to court and point to a specific ordinance that is protecting their rights. The resolutions went before the city counsel tonight but I have no idea what the outcome was.

You know there will be more. :)

No running today, no nothing. Just hectic work stuff. As always. We got a ton of snow this weekend and its gone back to normal northern winter conditions. Cold. Although, we did have sun today. That brings the 2006 total to 13 days of sun in Michigan. Very exciting. I suspect we could get as high as 30 days by the end of the year.

  1. If there are only a total of 30 sunny days in Michigan a year, why exactly do you live there? Hmmm…and the breast feeding saga continues…

  2. Ah yes, legitimate reasons to print the word BREAST make for great ratings, eh?

    If it makes you feel better, the sun is still rising like clockwork, even if you don’t get to see it. Maybe I can trade some of our sunshine for some of your snow – somebody moved our winter.

    Are we not a pinched up society,, let them breast feed,, tho there is a certain grossness about a boob being flopped on the table and baby going to town, lol, well thats my two cents.
    Enjoy your non running day

  4. Here in Ontario women can go topless if they choose – therefore we’re free to nurse anywhere we please :grin: Maybe they’ll pass a law like that there?

  5. Not sure what to think about the breastfeeding issue. I’ve seen women who are quite demure and thoughtful of other people who may feel a bit awkward with a babe suckling a breast a few feet away from them. And I’ve seen women who pull out a boobie defiantly in public places such as restaurants to nurse, as if to say, “I dare you to tell me re-holster my boob!”

    Re O.C – Okay, what does it stand for?

  6. The saga continues, I just don’t get what the big deal is anyway. If you don’t like it, don’t look, right? Maybe you could enjoy more sunny days in CT and help me make my chocolate cakes. My six year old son and I both made one yesterday, his was better, moister. It’s fun trying all these recipes though.

  7. I haven’t seen snow in so long I forgot what it looks like.

  8. People need to get the fact that boobies are primarily for FEEDING BABIES. I mean come on!
    ps I ran today. :)

  9. As much as I like boobs, I’ll admit that there’s nothing “hot” about nursing. It’s cool, as far as I’m concerned.

    Somehow I remember Michigan having tons of sunny days…

  10. The sun is out in Orlando. Again. The snow melted.

  11. Ok Ya’ll, Jons personal filters prevent him from seeing the sun all the time, why it was sunny yesterday and today too, here in Sunny Michigan and just to make Dawn And Karens day there was even some more snow on the ground, hehe!

  12. Turn on your TV and chances are you’ll be seeing MORE bare breast action than when a mother feeds her baby!
