Breastfeeding At The Ball Park!


I found this amazing article about the Cincinnati Reds ball park. They made an adorable breastfeeding suite in their stadium. I thought it was an awesome thing that they provided for nursing mothers. I’m not opposed to women breastfeeding in public. I think that feeding your baby is a natural activity that shouldn’t be frowned upon. This doesn’t mean that when I have kids I will be whipping my breast out anywhere, I’m just saying it’s nice that they provided these mothers a safe, clean and cheerful environment do breastfeed in.

Here is a snippet of the article by Mike Oz.

“The Cincinnati Reds announced a new ballpark feature Monday that any mother will love: A nursing suite where breast-feeding moms can retreat during a game for a more comfortable, more private moment with their child. Phil Castellini, the Reds' chief operating officer, told ESPN that the club had an increasing number of women asking for a better place to nurse. Pro sports stadiums are loud, crowded and sometimes sticky — so finding a serene place is a bit of a challenge. As a father of five, Castellini knew this was a serious demand, so the Reds created something special at Great American Ball Park.And so, the nursing suite came to be. A local homebuilder created it and the Reds got Pampers to sponsor it. The result is this straight-outta-HGTV suite that's probably better than most peoples' homes.”
