Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.
Tuesday, January 23, 2007Yeah, that caught your eye didn't it. It's not quite what you think...or maybe it is.
Either way, Colleen Newman has an interesting idea.
Over at My Baby and More (her blog) she mentions that Wal-Mart is planning an "All Things Baby" event on February 3rd. She writes...
Wal-Mart has dreamed up an event, most likely to boost their declining sales this year, called "All Things Baby", which is scheduled for February 3rd. Go to their "All Things Baby" event and receive: "Bundles of information and helpful ideas and solutions." And . . . drum roll please . . . You can even enjoy a "complimentary gift bag with samples (while supplies last)!!"
Hmmm . . . I wonder what those generous samples will be? I’ll give you a hint . . . "Take part in an exclusive Nutrition & Feeding Educational Seminar sponsored by Similac".
Colleen suggests that she just might head to her local event to take part in a little lactivism. I can't help but wonder about the idea myself.
Can you imagine some new moms sitting down for that seminar and then all of a sudden, half a dozen or more of them put baby to breast?
It brings a smile to my face. Especially since the Wal-Mart nearest me hassled a breastfeeding mom earlier this year.
I don't know if I've got the energy to try and push for a nation-wide nurse-in at this event, but part of me says that it would be an awful lot of fun.
I dunno...what do you guys think?
