Hi Ladies! I'm new to EB, just wanted to invite any Sydney Mummas to join us on Monday outside 7 Sunrise for a nurse in. https://m.facebook.com/events/1208187547563...efid=9&_rdr
I'm sure you all read or head about the Bribie Island mum who was recently told not to BF in a public pool. This morning, Sunrise host David Koch shared his view that the mum should have covered up or moved, despite her right to bf in public being enshrined by federal law.Anyway, hope some of you will come along!

I'm actually friends with Liana and I just want to say it's so great that she has so much support out there original.gif

For anyone up here there will be a nurse-in at 11am tomorrow at the Bribie Island Aquatic Centre.

What concerns me is that Mr Koch's Neanderthal comments seem to be resulting in a lot of publicity for the Sunrise program and a lot of additional viewers. I am more in the ignore him camp. He has a history of making these kind of remarks and pretending to be a narrow minded red-neck to gain ratings points.
