Looks like it will be spotty posting this week. Sorry about that folks...bad wifi connection here in the hotel. Besides...if you were in New York for a week, would you blog, or would you see the city?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I've got quite a few stories that I'm working on in the background though. There are some more breastfeeding in public problems going on out there right now, there's upcoming news about the Ohio Breastfeeding Coalition and there may be some scandalous news about a well known breastfeeding-related program. (See what I did there...I made you interested so that you'll come back even though I'm on vacation...but really, I'm not lying, I'm digging on that last story, and I'm not liking what I'm finding...)

On the fun note, I'll have pictures up this week. This morning we snagged some breakfast at Lindy's (famous for their cheesecake) before heading off on a 4 or 5 hour walking trek through the city. We hit Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station, the United Nations, the Jewelry District, St. Patrick's Cathedral and quite a few other places. Emmitt spend the whole time in the Ergo (product review coming up) and even slept for about an hour.

I'm also impressed that NYC seems to have a lot of very health food friendly places to eat. There are quite a few chains here that feature lots of fresh, healthy ingredients and even a few that are almost all organic. It's nice to have fast, affordable food options that aren't packed with trans fat and other nasty stuff. I absolutely cannot wait for Pret to come to Columbus. Yum!

Tonight, we may sneak across the street to celebrity watch. The movie "Perfect Stranger" is premiering in a few hours and they're already setting up the red carpet. It stars Halle Berry, Giovanni Ribesi and Bruce Willis. I certainly wouldn't mind spotting any of them. Tomorrow, we'll be heading to the Central Park Zoo and maybe to Ellis Island.

In the meantime, if you need a breastfeeding blogger fix, check out my blog roll and go visit some new sites.

    Cheesecake for breakfast?! Now that's what I'm talking about!

    If you like sandwiches you can make 2 meals out of be sure to hit up Carnegie Deli - it's an institution!

    Glad to hear the Ergo is working out for cruising around the city. Strollers are great but can be difficult on the subway and in/out of cabs if you are using either of those methods to get around.

    Have a great time!

    ok- well i can't wait to hear all your stuff when u get back. On a positive note there was a very pro-breastfeeding aspect of a story on Oprah today- she had on a woman who had sextuplets and exclusively breastfed all of them til they were six months! She said she pumped about 50-60 bottles a day! And everyone in the audience and Oprah were just applauding her- it was very inspirational:-)

    Hi Jennifer--hope you're having fun in NY.

    I think someone already gave you the Thinking Blogger Award, but I did so yesterday as you're one of the favorites in my blogroll and this is an issue that needs better and more helpful publicity. The post is at http://juniasdaughter.blogspot.com/2007/04/thinking-blogger-awardsix-weird-things.html if you want to visit me and my wonderful blogring, RevGalBlogPals.
