Baby Booby Beanie - Dedicated to Breastfeeding Moms



This is dedicated to all breastfeeding moms. I breastfed all my babies in public 29 years ago.    Women should not be forced or shamed in to a dirty bathroom to feed their babies.   When baby is hungry, feed your baby. Don't let someone else make you feel it is wrong. The divine plan for human nature set it to breastfeed your baby.  Shame on the people who take what is natural and turn it in to something else.
