At this point, I’m absolutely over the phrase “having it all.” It’s been beaten to death, taken out of context, used as link bait, etc… And I’m over it. I’m mostly over it because it’s a convoluted concept. “Having it all” doesn’t have one universal definition and it is something we only lord over the heads of women. It’s problematic on many levels, yet that doesn’t stop folks from hammering the point over and over and over again. But because the concept of “having it all” is so entrenched in our society, when an accomplished professor (of a feminist anthropology course, no less) ends up bringing her sick baby to the first day of class, and at one point nurses her, it becomes fodder for an investigative story.

Mom Sues After Parents Magazine Breastfeeding Video Ends Up On Porn Site

Two years ago, a New Jersey mom filmed an educational video about breastfeeding for Parents magazine’s website and their associated YouTube channel.

Then, to MaryAnn Sahourey’s great horror, some asshole took the video, spliced it with pornography of a woman who looked like Sahourey having sex, and reposted it online. The kicker is that both Sahourey’s name and the the name of her infant daughter were posted along with it. Keep reading »

Breasts. You may have heard of their alternate use as feeding mechanisms for tiny offspring. You may also have heard of their function in women’s sexual pleasure. But let us not forget the real purpose of a lady’s chesticles: sexual pleasure for her husband.

And all that time a new mama spends nursing? That’s time her hubby isn’t playing with his boobs.

Thus seems to be the logic behind baby bottle manufacturer Bittylab’s recent tweets advertising their product, called Bare, which read “New baby? Reclaim your wife” and “Feeling like you’re competing with your newborn for mommy’s attention? Meet BARE air-free #babybottles.” Keep reading »

A Reality Show About Breastfeeding Older Children Is On The Way

On the heels of the Time magazine cover and all the talk about attachment parenting, Collins Avenue,the production company that brought us “Dance Moms” (which I happen to love, that Abbey Lee Miller is a trip), is developing a reality series about mothers who breastfeed older children. And no, I am not making reference to Michelle from TLC’s “Strange Sex” series who practices erotic breastfeeding with her husband. I am talking about mothers who are still nursing kids old enough to ask for the tit by name.

The New York Post interviewed some mothers who breastfeed their older children. “If she’d wanted to stop any earlier she just would have,” said one mother whose daughter self-weaned at age seven. Yikes. Seven? She sounds old enough to have written an English assignment about her love of breast milk. Keep reading »
