calling all breastfeeding mums:

Past, future, or present!
A crowd of mothers on Rollercoaster have got together to organise a positive publicity photo shoot of mothers who love breastfeeding. The date is Sept 20th, 10.30-12.30, the venue is the Grainstore at Cabinteely House and Gingerpixel, baby photographer extraordinaire, is the photographer!

This will be done in conjunction with the launch of the breastfeeding site I mentioned recently - more on that when it goes live.

Anyone who feels good about breastfeeding, whether you've fed your children, are still feeding babies of toddlers, or plan to feed your unborn baby, try and come along. Just head to Rollercoaster's breastfeeding thread and put your name down so they've some idea of numbers.

The dress code is bare feet, jeans, and a white top. The group hopes to also do a shot of the mothers in work wear, and one in evening wear, but I suspect that's a little optimistic. Still, bring 'em in case, if you like. There's talk of having the babas in their vests, but I suppose it depends on the temperature.

I think this is a great idea - it's not focusing on 'breast is best', it's just a positive and affirming image.

Maybe I should come along with a 5 gallon drum Jo and stock up for a few months.
