Dear Target:

Breastfeeding is not obscene. See? Recently, in a Houston, Texas area Target, a breastfeeding mom was harassed and humiliated for breastfeeding, discretely, in the store.

Breastfeeding Triplets

It can be done. Granted, there will be many hurdles to jump. BUT… it is possible. Take it from me. The girls got mommy milk until 13 months old. Ian went all the way to 20 months, and he chose by himself to give it up. I think the peer pressure got to him. After…
