Don't Worry La Leche League Jayman Has Your Back

Hola healthy baby advocates! On Wednesday’s episode of IWS special guest co-host Warrior_Kat and Jayman talked briefly about the subject of breastfeeding in public. An adorable caller named Katie also chimed in with her opinion on this divisive subject. We also talked about the “controversy” over women in the military breastfeeding publicly. Anyway, Jayman thought he should take a few minutes today to make Jayman’s position clear so there is no confusion. And, Jayman obviously thinks this is done best in third person.

As Jayman mentioned on the show, there was a time when he was one of those people who thought women should cover up or, better yet, find a private place to breastfeed. But, that was the old Jayman. That was before Jayman educated himself on this subject and saw the light. And, most importantly, it was also before Jayman was introduced to La Leche League.

After seeing many members of La Leche League in action, Jayman realized he didn’t need to risk getting on their bad side he had been wrong all along about this issue. It isn’t just about what’s right for your baby. The superiority of breastfeeding over formula is pretty well documented. It’s also about radical militant women not just breastfeeding in public, but forcing everyone to see them and support them defending a mother’s right to breastfeed her child anywhere and at any time.

Jayman was horrified impressed with La Leche’s ability to browbeat vigorously force their agenda on educated everyone on this issue. And after reassessing his personal safety situation studying the issue, Jayman realized there was no reason for anyone at La Leche to know his name La Leche was on the side of the angles and Jayman should just admit he was wrong. Jayman basically realized he would rather piss off Al Qaeda than make anyone at La Leche mad at him.

So, Jayman wants everyone to know that he isn’t just an advocate for breastfeeding; he too believes that moms who don’t breastfeed are bad moms. Now, Jayman knows this will upset some moms and he feels bad about that. But, the evidence is clear that breastfeeding is way, WAY better for babies and really does help create that special bond between mother and child. And it’s that bond that Jayman, along with La Leche will defend whenever and wherever necessary.

If Jayman at is at Pizza Hut or KFC or any other establishment and sees a mother being hassled by the restaurant staff because she’s breastfeeding, he won’t hesitate to jump in the middle of the fray and defend the mother. If the police try to stop a woman from doing a little natural and beautiful bonding with her child in a public park, Jayman will stand up to the jack-booted thugs on her behalf. And more importantly when Jayman hears of a friend on social media or in his family having a baby, he will make a point to ask them if they are breastfeeding. And God help them if they aren’t because Jayman will shame them into it!

So, just in case someone from La Leche happens upon this post or Wednesday’s show, they should just know that Jayman has their back. Jayman supports them ONE HUNDRED PERCET. There’s no need to worry about Jayman at all. Nope. None. Zero. Zilch. Zippo. NAH-DAH! Jayman is your friend. There’s nothing to see here La Leche, just move along. Just go back to worrying about people who don’t support you with every ounce of their being like Jayman does.



In other news, on Wednesday’s show Jayman’s BFF, the lovely and talented Warrior_Kat sat in for Matt-Man who was unavailable. Jay and Kat talked about breastfeeding, Justin Combs and about the sugary drinks ban in NYC. In between they took calls and engaged in witty banter about what’s going on in their lives. It was a great sow and you should totally check it out!

I've always known that you were never a big fan of huge boobs but I never realized that you feared their capacity to hurt you. Cheers Jayman!!

This post is purely brilliant. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about a mother breast feeding, but those La Leche Leaguers are pretty hard core! My sister in law is breastfeeding my new nephew. Sure, she does it in the yard at the picnic table while we're all playing badminton, or cards, or eating grilled goodness...but she has the decency to cover up and not once have I seen a boob flashed to the world. Not once. Even so, and with her and baby being all covered up, I must admit it is a little bit uncomfortable sitting there trying to have a conversation with her while she has a baby going to town on her boob the whole time.

Matt-Man: Huge boobs can be very dangerous. There have been documented incidences of a woman hitting a guy in the head with her monster boobs and giving him a concussion! Always need to be careful.

Angie: I don't even demand that they cover up anymore. Just whip that boob out ladies! hahaha

I've breastfed all of my kids. It isn't something every mom can manage, despite what the health nazis say.

In public I just use this big gauzy blanket-scarf to cover up. Sometimes the baby yanks it off & grown men faint & women gasp. I just smile serenely like that statue of Mary nursing baby Jesus, and it guilts people into feeling like douchebags.

It's FEEDING A BABY. Do the best that you can. People act retarded about breastfeeding, it's absurd.

Mike got to see breast feeding in action on a tour boat ride in DC right next to him. But she was so good at cover up Mike saw only little kiddy happy feet.
