Recently Timmi Toler of the Daily News in Jacksonwille wrote a column with some food for thought for breastfeeding moms.She claims that nursing in public is shocking and makes people uncomfortable, so mothers would do better to breastfeed their children in closets or restrooms rather than in public.
While I couldn't agree more with Toler that breastfeeding can be a special moment with one's baby, it's also just the act of feeding a baby.I do it a dozen or more times a day.Just because I don't find a closet or restroom to nurse doesn't mean that I haven't adjusted my life to accommodate the needs of my children.In so many respects, my life revolves around my children, and indeed much of the time we are out in public, it is in service of their needs for socialization, exercise, food, clothing, medical care, and so forth.Since I breastfeed my son on demand, as all the experts say is best for him, there are many times during the week that he enjoys his meals in public.Because I have learned that he's easily distracted, I do find quiet places for him to nurse when I can, but I certainly don't feed him while sitting on a toilet or hiding in a closet.I honestly feel sorry for Toler and her children that she felt she needed to hide when breastfeeding.How very sad for them all.
I'm completely confused about this statement in Toler's column: "These folks are also entitled to certain rights when they visit the mall and seeing an exposed breast isn't one of them."Okay, the sentence itself doesn't make any sense, but ignoring the lack of editorial oversight at the Daily News, what right is she talking about exactly and where is it described in the US or any state Constitution, other statute, or court ruling?Because if we're talking about this issue in terms of rights, the fact is that most states in the Union have statutes that specifically protect the rights of mothers to nurse in public, exempting them from whatever indecency laws might otherwise apply to public breast exposure.I believe the 5th circuit court in California said it best: Nourishment is necessary to maintain the child's life, and the parent may choose to believe that breastfeeding will enhance the child's psychological as well as physical health.In light of the spectrum of interests that the Supreme Court has held specially protected we conclude that the Constitution protects from excessive state interference a woman's decision respecting breastfeeding her child. (650 F.2d at 787)
States shouldn't interfere with mothers decisions about breastfeeding and neither should folks like Timmi Toler.
Shame on you Timmi Toler.

The staff, which is made up of area high school and home-school students, is lead by Timmi Toler, a staff writer for The Daily News.
"I'd been a fan and an avid reader of Listen Up! for a long time, so when I was offered the job, I jumped at the chance to work with the staff," says Timmi who took over the position after Roselee was offered a chance to cover the area crime beat.
"Roselee's extraordinary leadership and dedication to Listen Up! really made an impact on teens in our community," says Timmi."My goal as editor is to keep up that momentum so the page continues evolving and meeting the needs of our readers."
With a team of diverse teens, Timmi says Listen Up! is looking forward to a bright future and is also actively recruiting area teens to join the staff.Any area high school students can contact Timmi through The Daily News to join (see contact information bottom left).
According to Timmi, working on the staff helps teens to foster their creative talents and can even be helpful when applying to college and jobs.
"People that have creative skills like writing need to have an environment where they can foster those skills.Something like Listen Up! gives them that type of environment and the chance to work with their peers.They not only learn how to enhance their writing, but also how to meet deadlines, work under pressure and develop people skills through interviews," Timmi says.
