Don’t Bring Dirty Looks to a Machete Fight

Posted by on November 14th, 2012, under SNAPSHOTS

How many looks of disgust or ohmahgosh rolls of the eyes do you think this mom gets breastfeeding in public? Bingo! Not many. At least not from people with a full set of arms in their collection. You could argue that it’s because she’s a part of a primitive society and that they’re all simply […]

Bad Product Idea #11: The Boob Hat

Posted by on September 10th, 2012, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Babies and toddlers have lots to do, all the time. Even when they have nothing to do, they’ll be busy doing something. But feeding can be suuuuuch an annoyance. Babies shouldn’t be required to put down the blocks every single chow time, wrapping themselves around Mommy’s midsection to suckle, or impersonating a sack of potatoes […]
