We're the featured story on the front page of the Metro section in today's Dispatch. Yay!

Here's a link to the full story.

From the story...


Amid the bustle of Port Columbus yesterday morning, Jennifer Laycock reached under her shirt, unhooked her nursing bra and put 7-week-old Emmitt to her breast.

Slowly, one by one, more mothers joined her. Twelve in all had brought 18 children, and just about all of them nursed while sitting on a bench or the floor, in plain view of the Delta Air Lines ticket counter.

It was an attempt to show support for a New Mexico woman who was kicked off a Delta/Freedom Air flight with her family on Oct. 13 when she refused to cover her 22-month-old nursing daughter with a blanket.

    congrats for getting out there!
    I nursed my daughter 14months and believe that no women should be ridiculed for breastfeeding in public.
