Breastfeeding postage stamp? lovinthem04 Due June 26 (boy); 19 kids; Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri 1999 posts

I got an email to sign this petition. Have yall heard of it? What do you think? I am all for breastfeeding, but I think it's getting a little ridiculous now to constantly find a way to show it. I have NO problem with nursing in public, but I think people are trying to make this more controversial than it needs to be.

i dont see how it much different from the "spay your pets" stamps *shrugs*
i think breastfeeding needs to be more widely excepted and encouraged

I don't really care, just like I don't really care about any other stamps that are out there to be honest. I loved nursing, but I don't care about turning it into a stamp. *shrugs*

No I haven't heard of it, but I agree with you. I think it's great that people want to make a point to stop discriminating against bfing, but we don't need to throw it in peoples face all day every day.

No one even really uses snail mail anymore. Why is a postage stamp the proper avenue for advocating breast feeding?? :?

Why not? It woudl save teh government millions of dollars potentially if they could actually hit the healthy people 2020 goal with nursing....so I say go for it.

I have no opinion either way. Who really pays attention to postage stamps?

I'm unbiased. It would not bother me, but I agree with you. It is made to be more controversial than it should be. I completely understand defending yourself and standing up for your rights if you're doing it and somebody makes a comment. Either way, I don't see it as a big deal. I guess it's good to promote it though for more women to breastfeed. But THB, I've never looked or paid attention to any postage stamp on any letter. So I doubt this will do any good. Meh.

Did any of you look at the stamps on your mail today? I didn't so...would it really matter?
