The Breast Report

Saturday, November 18, 2006
Some days it's hard to stay abreast of all the breaking news on the breast front.

I learned about Marie Claire publishing a fake photo of ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas breastfeeding her baby boy at her anchor desk via MotherPie. Not surprisingly, Vargas is less-than-pleased with the spread. Read more about the controversy, plus more Marie Claire breast buzz..

I've been following what Mojo Mom Amy Tiemann has so fittingly dubbed the Breasts on a Plane" incident, in which Freedom Airlines (!) asked breastfeeding mother Emily Gillette of New Mexico to leave one of its planes last month after she refused to cover up while breastfeeding. The company apologized to Gillette but Gillette has questioned many of the statements made in that apology. It's pretty unbelievable that a mother's right to breastfeed her baby in public is still open for debate. What will it take to finally lay that debate to rest -- moms sporting fruit-style stickers on their breasts to remind the people who just don't get it that breasts can equal food for babies?
