International icon for breastfeeding?
The folks at Mothering.com held a contest recently to solicit designs for an internationally-recognizable icon to represent breastfeeding. They said, "The image of a baby bottle on an airport sign announcing the location of a "parents lounge" infuriated us and got us thinking: Isn't there an international symbol for breastfeeding?"
The results of their contest are clever (check out the finalists here), but I find these also-rans (click through for more) particularly funny:
Here in Canada, or at least in Ottawa, there is a commonly-recognized symbol of a baby that indicates nursing stations, baby-change rooms and whatnot. Are they not common everywhere?
