Can you believe a woman was recently kicked off a Delta airlines flight for discreetly breastfeeding her child!? Please share your own breastfeeding tales of triumph and embarrassment here (*Click the blog title above or "Read full post" link below, then scroll down to the end of the blog text and Post a Comment)! And don't forget to sign the petition to tell Delta Airlines to get a clue and be supportive of breastfeeding mothers, as well as tell Congress it’s time to pass the Breastfeeding Promotion Act, which amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to protect breastfeeding mothers.

I almost got kicked out of a Flower & Garden Show for nursing my son ten years ago, but that pales in comparison to actually getting kicked off an airplane--as happened recently to a mother on a Delta Airlines flight in Vermont.

Fox News quotes her as saying, “It embarrassed me. That was my first reaction, which is a weird reaction for doing something so good for a child.”

So please sign the petition, and forward the link to friends so they can sign on too: http://www.momsrising.org/breastfeeding-petition
