Parenting Artifacts

Much like anthropologist Jane Goodall immersed herself into the world of the gorillas, Amanda and I are becoming a part of parent culture. Along the way, like all social scientists, we are discovering the many strange and unique tools specific to this exotic culture. Here is a sample of one of our preliminary findings.

The Hooter Hider
This is basically an apron a mother can wear in public when breastfeeding. I am unsure why a culture that is so outspoken that “breast is best” produces an item that implies women should feel embarrassed by the actual act of breastfeeding. I am also unsure why they allowed a group of 11 year-old boys to name the product.
