The Reluctant Lactivist takes on the Ronald McDonald House

I just have time for two quick links, to recommend that you read about the Reluctant Lactivist taking on the Ronald McDonald House of Houston's staff who wants to discourage breastfeeding in common areas.

I recommend that you start with the story on Salon.com's Broadsheet and then read the Reluctant Lactivist's own account.

I'd love to show her support from Mojo Moms so if you stop by her blog, leave her a few kind words. It sounds like she's been through an exhausting process.

Hey, Reluctant Lactivist here! Thanks for linking to my blog! Just want to clarify that the RMH story isn't about me, but a mom I read about on Mothering magazine's discussion forum. I'm working with a small group of advocates that is trying to help the mom and her sister (Jessica and Melanie) get a more satisfactory resolution to this situation (current outcome is NOT satisfactory and will leave other moms vulnerable to the same heartless discrimination). I'll let you know when we have an update and action alert!

Geez... I'm from Texas (now in NC because DH is military), and I can't believe that would actually happen in a HOSPITAL of all places!

How silly. *eye roll*
