You have to admit: it’s a creative way to get a point across.
Down in Columbia, a group by the name of Amigos de la Lactancia (or “Friends of Breast-feeding”) is installing breast-feeding mannequins all around retail locations and malls. Their goal is to reduce the stigma of public nursing.
Their website states: “Friends of Breast-feeding [Amigos De La Lactancia] is a movement that supports moms who are attacked for feeding their babies in public. This initiative invites all Colombians to declare themselves as their friends and postulate shopping centers to make them 100% breast-feeding-friendly territories. Friends can be all of us who want moms to feed their babies freely, and feel [safe] to do it in the place they choose. The more friends moms have, we’ll be getting closer and closer to turning all of Colombia into 100% friendly to breast-feeding.”
As you can see below, the (plastic) mannequins are fully and tactfully clothed: with one (plastic) breast exposed, holding a (plastic) baby. They’re creatively positioned in a bunch of different locations, too: showing that nursing can be done anywhere.
So what would you think about seeing these around NorthPark Center?
