I had a dream...

I dreamt that there was a group of people, like a social action group, that was trying to get the government to ban lactation rooms. I was, of course, against this idea being that I am a lactating person and like the idea of a room dedicated to me and other lactators. Not that I need one since I don't go to an office every day. My whole house is one giant, unapologetic lactation room. But still, I'm pro-lactation rooms, for those working moms.
Anyway, in the dream, one of the anti-lactation room activists said the only reason women breastfeed is so they can have big boobs. I countered with "I breastfeed and I already had big boobs! Now they are too big and I hate it - so there!!" I even had a witness to verify my pre-lactating, pre-pregnancy chest size. Not sure who this person was - you know how dreams are...
So, what do you think? Is this some sort of Freudian dream? Does it mean I want to keep "lactating" or stop? Or is it just a pile of subconscious crap?


  1. PUUUUULLLLLLLLLEASE. I breastfeed for a variety of reasons, and I can assure you it was not for bigger boobs. Who cares if they are a bit bigger (sadly, mine never got very big.:) but leak? And, if women saw what happens to ones boobs after nursing 5 children I can assure you they'd never say that again. he he. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi, Nicole,
    I want to apologize for not getting back to you about the New England Bloggers. I thought I was receiving all of my comments via email, but such was not the case, so I am going through them one by one. I hope you'll re-post the button on your sidebar. I'm adding you to the list, and I hope you'll re-post the button on your sidebar. If you'd like to be included in emails about activities we are doing, you can email me through my profile. For example, this week we are hosting giveaways and linking to each other. It's really increasing traffic.

  3. I used a lactation room frighteningly similar to your photo at children's hospital a few times when we were there for doctor's visits. I remember having very hard feelings against the "breast is best" poster hanging up on the wall. Like "if it is so freakin good...you BF twins!" I would have so loved to have half ripped it off the wall!**Sigh**

  4. Hi! Thanks so much for your comment on my blog (nice to meet you!) and your good wishes. Your baby pictures are so cute. I will start reading your blog and following along.

  5. I forgot to tell you that I went to UMASS (straight out of high school in New Mexico) both at Amherst and Boston. I loved it!
