‘Milk Truck’ 1 Step Closer To Reality

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The creators of the “Milk Truck” say they’ve surpassed their goal and are one step closer to helping Pittsburgh moms.

The truck would be used as a mobile breastfeeding station for women who feel like they are being discouraged or harassed for breastfeeding in public.

Jill Miller envisioned wanted to buy an ice cream truck and outfit it with a giant breast on the roof.

Project manager Tara McElfresh said they will lay down a rug, set up chairs under an awning on the side of the truck, and if the mother still needs to, she can nurse outside in an environment of support.

Miller was trying to raise $10,000 to make the project a reality through pledges at a site called Kickstarter.com.

Once completed, the truck is scheduled to be part of an exhibit starting in September at the Andy Warhol Museum.

    What a waste of time and money

    REALLY????? This is pathetic!!! Come on people … can’t you do anything better with your time rather than making spectacles of yourself and mothers? Calling un-needed attention and crowds for no good reason? Nursing is a natural and beautiful thing and bonds the child in mother but it is also something that should be done in private. Would you “bond” with your husband/boyfriend (also a very natural and beautiful thing) in a public place?

      I bond with your mother both privately and publicly. You are jealous because you didn’t think of it first.

        You are probably an idiot who is still breastfed and is embarrassed.

    Breast feeding has no place in public. The people involved are acting like spoiled children. They are exhibitionists and selfishly want to do what they want to do, when and where they want to do it, even if they are embarassing the other women around them. If these “boob – a – nazis” are made to feel uncomfortable, they will make a bigger embarrassing display on the city street like a child throwing a temper tantrum Much of the public does not want to see this display but are afraid to say it since they will be made to feel they are against motherhood, apple pie and base ball. At the very least, if these mothers had good manners, they’d stay home or go to the rest room.

      Oh Holly. I’m not an exhibitionist. I’m sorry that you are so easily embarrassed though, that must be difficult! I do go to the rest room, when I have to eliminate waste. I wouldn’t have cared to stay home for the bulk of my kids’ first years though.
