What’s Hard About Covering Up To Breastfeed?

Anytime a breastfeeding story comes up in the news, especially one in which a breastfeeding mom is asked to leave an area to feed her baby, I break my own rule about not reading online comments out of sheer, morbid curiosity. Article from Scary Mommy In real life, I’m surrounded by people who are very supportive of breastfeeding, so it interests me to read comments and questions about the appropriateness of breastfeeding in public.Of course, there are always some unnecessarily mean people, but some sentiments that come up frequently are legitimately well-meaning.

Natwest feature Bshirt in Flexible working article

While a less rigid approach to office hours is increasingly commonplace, it’s not something that can be embraced without first considering all the implications, as these experts and SME owners explain. Article from NatWest  According to recent reports, around two thirds of UK employees have some sort of flexible working arrangement – be that a part-time contract, the option to work from home, job sharing or flexible hours – and with employers legally obliged to at least consider requests from staff who want a more agile approach to their working week, it suggests that we are steadily inching towards a...
