We think it’s time the United States had a stamp, too! There’s a petition to develop and issue a stamp that “depict[s], promote[s], and normalize[s] breastfeeding.” They are shooting for 25,000 signatures, but right now have about 2,000. So why not add your name to the list? You have until February 11 to sign and spread the word.
