And what will your little one be having for dinner tonight? This “breastfeeding menu” T-shirt reads like a real prix-fixe restaurant offering. Will cause others to laugh at no additional cost! Available at zazzle.com, $15.95.
A button is the perfect way to let others know what you are thinking, without you actually having to say it out loud!
