And here I thought the MySpace thing was bad. Get a load of this!
“There’s a mother named Robin Neorr here in the Columbus area. After her daughter was born late last year and she went back to work, she enrolled her daughter in one of the City Kids Daycare in downtown Columbus.
Robin was told that she would need to pay an extra $50 per WEEK because her 3 month old daughter is breastfed. You read that right, an extra $50 a week to feed that little girl the best food available for her.”

Like it’s not hard enough for a mom to go back to work and pump throughout the day. Now she has to deal with opposition and discrimination from her child care provider. What is wrong with this world? We need to support mothers, not make life harder for them.
If you disagree with the daycare center’s policy, please send an email – firstname.lastname@example.org – (I just sent mine including a link to 101 Reasons to Breastfeed Your Child) or call City Kids DayCare – (614) 464-1411, or (614)777-4320 – and pass this along to get the word out. Thanks!
