How You Can Help (Even If You're Not an Austinite)

This issue is currently a local issue, but the results of the work we do here may one day affect other parts of the country. So yes, you can be a part of this change even if you are outside of our city or even state.

There are many ways you can help.  

You can contact AISD (see "Contact Information" post) and tell them that clearly a policy that will follow the law and support breastfeeding mothers is needed to educate the present and future staff. You can call, send a letter, or email. If you don't have a lot of time, that's okay. It can be brief.

Contact your state legislators and ask them if they will act on our behalf to encourage AISD to adopt a mother- and baby-friendly policy.

Sign our petition and share it with friends.  

Please like us on facebook follow us on twitter.   

And while you're still here on the blog, follow/subscribe, & show your support with a comment.  

And tell all your friends! 

Whatever it takes, I'm in this for the (potential) long haul, until we get what we deserve - a policy that upholds the law and respects a mother's right to nurse her baby wherever her baby is hungry.


  1. Yo go Mama! You are doing the right thing, not just for you but for all nursing mothers and our daughters. You are paving the way for for the future mothers to be. I believe that the world is going to wake up and start living how nature intended us to live. I cannot applause you enough. Thank you.

  2. You would hope that in any place of education they would champion mother's rights and the option to breastfeed. I have signed the petition and I hope that they will come to the realization that it's not indecent to feed a baby.

    1. Thank you, Amy! I hope so, too. There's a board meeting tomorrow - hopefully that will make a difference. :)
