When Barbara Walters kvetched to her posse on The View about having to see a woman breastfeeding on the plane, some other Viewster was like, "Ew, I'm so embarassed when I have to nurse," and the rest go, "Yay, she had her first bottle of formula!"
It was enough to make breastfeeders around the country hoppin' mad. So after thanking their branding consultant for the headline-friendly moniker, about 150 lactivists staged a feed-in yesterday in front of ABC's Upper West Side studios.
Kudos to breastfeeders everywhere, and to breast supporter and DT reader Eric Schulmiller, who gets quoted in the NYDN article: "'What I hear from my wife and other women, it's not an easy thing to do,' said Schulmiller, of Port Washington, L.I. 'They need all the support they can get.'"
