I was a little nervous to check the comments on yesterday's post, and I am so relieved to see that I'm not the only one who thinks The P.ump Sta.tion is a bit weird, distasteful and icky. I couldn't get it out of my head last night and I talked about it with a friend as well as my SIL (who has a child), both who tend to be rather open-minded, and both know what kind of people live in the town I work in. And they agreed that it's strange, to say the least. Whew!
Thank you everyone for your comments!! I have a couple responses:
MotherHen - I can definitely see your point about some new moms preferring the company of fellow nursing moms. I personally don't think I would be one of them. I think I'd be more likely to go back to the car (and tinted windows!), but I'm a slightly anti-social, more private type person. There are certainly women that would prefer having more company though.
Tanya - In both my conversations with SIL and my friend, we talked about what a great idea it would be to have a separate room, similar to a restroom, for breastfeeding in malls and that kind of thing. I think that would be totally appropriate!
I guess what it comes down to for me is the weirdness of turning it into a business, and that I would be way too uncomfortable to take part in it.
