Is That A.T.T.I.C.?: Michigan Nurse-In Tomorrow!

This is not the joke where you look down your shirt and spell attic!
Yes, that was a titty! And it was feeding a baby!

A member of the Black Mother's Breastfeeding Association was harassed by a bus driver while boarding a bus and feeding her newborn son, and had her other young daughter with her. You can read see the entire story  here, and read the news report here.

The female bus driver blatantly asked, 'Is that a titty?' before erupting into disrespect and judgemental mode. I am at a loss for words.

You can take part in supporting our sister and help spread the word that breastfeeding is public is not a crime!  

Here is information from the Peaceful Parenting website on ways to help!
