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

surprised baby photo

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 »

Last month, the Interwebs were abuzz over pics of with two Airmen breastfeeding in uniform. Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna were not violating a specific policy against breastfeeding, but an Air Force spokesperson said Airmen must project a “professional image at all times while in uniform.” They were somewhat lucky: earlier this month, the spokeswoman for Mom2Mom, the organization behind the nursing pics, found herself out of a job. Crystal Scott was fired from her job as an X-ray technician in  Washington and was told by her employer it was “due to the media.” Keep reading »

Although, really, if Snooki had boob job questions, couldn’t she just ask JWoww? [VH1

How Do We Feel About Cows Producing Human Breast Milk?

I, too, await the cyborg overlords who will colonize the Earth, imprison us all, and incubate alien babies in our fertile wombs.

But what I cannot wrap my head around? China claims to have genetically modified cows to produce human breast milk. Yes, a “moo moo moo” cow producing milk for a “wah wah wah” human baby.

Whoa. Keep reading »

A little girl may have only stopped nursing a few years ago herself, but that’s no reason she can’t play mama to a Breast Milk Baby, right? The $89 doll by Berjuan Toys shows girls — and yes, this doll is by default for girls — how to nurture their babies by breastfeeding from their, um, breasts. To nurse their dolls, little girls put on a “magic top” with a flower stickers over the breasts, pull their baby’s mouth up to the flowers, and watch as the doll starts to “suckle and swallow.” The press release trills:

“The Breast Milk Baby lets young girls express their love and affection in the most natural way possible, just like mommy. The Breast Milk Baby represents a revolution in design by teaching children the nurturing skills they’ll need to raise their own healthy babies.”

Today’s Lady News: Lots Of Boobs At The Smithsonian On Saturday

  • Breastfeeding moms are holding a “nurse-in” at the Hirschorn Museum at the Smithsonian on Saturday after a woman who sat on a bench to nurse her daughter in January was told by a security guard to go feed the baby in the bathroom. A 1999 federal law states “a woman may breastfeed her child at any location in a federal building or on federal property, if the woman and her child are otherwise authorized to be present at the location.” Washington, D.C. also has the Child’s Right To Nurse Law, which allows a mother to breastfeed her baby in public. The museum has since apologized, both publicly and privately, and said it will welcome the “nurse-in” this Saturday. [NBC Washington]
  • Yesterday, the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health discussed the “Protect Life Act,” which would prohibit federal funding for abortion under health care reform (which is already technically the case) and would also stop funding from being withheld from groups that refuse to provide abortions. Rep. Joe Pitts, a Republican from Pennsylvania, introduced the bill. Fellow Republicans say the bill would close up loopholes that enable abortion, while Democrats say the bill is a ploy to chip away at a woman’s right to choose. [Washington Post]
