Breast Hats - Bashful duck out now!
Ok, so, I have a couple friends who asked for these. I was sent the pattern by a friend when I was breastfeeding my Gwyn. I tend not to be one to stir a "sh*tpot" but rather fight in the wings. I breastfeeding Gwyn never ran into anyone who openly opposed it. My dad thought it was good to do, but it made him uncomfortable so he would leave the room. After my 2 and 3/4 years of breastfeeding Gwyn he had gotten comfortable enough to walk through the room she was nursing in! That is a giant step for him and I am proud of that! Now, I did have a friend tell me he didn't care if I breastfed her in his bar/restaurant as long as I covered up. Which is fine. I don't really wanna slap my breasts out for all the town drunkards to see. And I don't know.. I fed her in other restaurants and malls and wherever I happened to be and never had anyone say anything. Now I don't know if James and I just looked like we would bite their heads off if they said anything or if it was just that nobody really noticed? I really don't know. But, here is the thing. Breastfeeding is the best thing you can do for your baby, if you can do it. Do. If you can't, or decide not to, that is totally your choice. But, I believe that babies have a right to eat, anywhere you do. Be it from breast, bottle or plate. Now, I said my piece where did I start? Oh my.. Right breast hats. I have a couple gals who made requests for them. I hope they fit their little people. But I thought I would show you, because they are cute and neat and fun. I think I am gonna make another.. just in case... and who knows.. maybe end up making some out of something warmer. This is Paton's Grace Merchandized cotton, it's soft and smooth and wonderful.. but we shall see how it goes.
