Today I attended a breast feeding class with a girlfriend. I really hope to be able to breastfeed as much as I can, but I know how difficult it can be. I have to say the class was informative and I definitely learned a thing or two. There was one hilarious part though where my girlfriend and I tried not to be giggly school girls. During the video we watched they touched on pumping at work. They stressed the importance of finding a comfortable space where you won't be interrupted. While they are going over this there is a woman in the video who goes into an office and hangs her "Do not disturb" sign on the door. She settles into a chair, opens her top, attaches the pump and then takes out a picture of her child and stares at it fondly. I'm so sorry but it took everything I had not to bust up laughing when she took out the photo. Call me naughty, but all I could think of was a man going in to make a "donation" and needing a magazine to help things along. Pictures of babies is now the porn of new moms. I know I'm going to write these things and then look back on them as I'm taking out my picture and think what a naive ass I was!
