I just started working for a few hours every week at a new science center. This center was open before under different management, and closed two years ago. The people of the city decided that they wanted it back, so now the city runs and owns the museum.

They asked the public how they could improve the museum, and one response that they got was that mothers wished they had a quiet place to nurse their children since it gets very loud and distracting. So in the toddler area, we just built a nursing room. Keeping with the rest of the museum, it has informational tidbits on the wall, like the five different eating personalities etc. The rocking chair is so soft and comfy, and there are toys for if there is an older sibling who has to go into the room too (they can't be unattended in the museum)

Also in the toddler area, there is a pretend hospital with babies in the "nursery." There are cloth diapers for the kids to use for the babies! Prefolds and covers I just thought that was super cool, and I'm really proud to be working somewhere that promotes nursing through toddlerhood as well as other natural choices that they may not get exposure to. They really listened to the nursing moms' concerns and put a lot of thought into it.

Just thought I'd share my joy

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
