Farmer's Market

Today Erinne and I went to the farmer's market with Ada. She is 22 days old today, and this was our biggest outing with her so far. We bought peaches, basil, garlic, prunes, tomatoes, and a half flat of berries.

I was absolutely stunned to find heirloom tomatoes for $1/lb. That is filthy cheap. We bought 2.5 pounds; we should have bought more.

Ada slept in the wrap for the first half of the trip. We were nervous about nursing Ada in public, but Erinne was able to find some steps to sit on and nurse discreetly.

On the way home, I dropped the box of berries and they spilled all over the sidewalk and dirt! We picked up most of them, abandoning a few of the blueberries.

  1. More power to you for nursing in public, Erinne! I could imagine it would feel awkward at first ... but I think just doing it is the only way to change the perception that something so natural is something that should only be done behind closed doors.

  2. There is a law (either city or state) protecting a woman's right to breastfeed in public.

    Apparently, the law only prohibits nudity if it is intended to cause arousal, though you're likely to be harassed by law enforcement if you attempt to exercise that right.
