We first told you about The Milk Truck in July when it was just in its prototype stage, and now the mobile breastfeeding unit complete with a giant breast on top has rolled into Pittsburgh. Jill Miller’s creation is now on display at the Andy Warhol Museum as part of the Pittsburgh Biennial. Miller dreamed up the clever vehicle in hopes of starting a conversation about a mother’s right to breastfeed in public. After all, a little humor from a 5 foot in diameter and 3 foot high breast must go a long way in gaining attention, right?
Miller’s mobile breastfeeding unit was created out of an old ice cream truck. The interior of the truck offers a comfortable and supportive place for women to breastfeed hungry babies. Getting hassled for breastfeeding on a park bench or been asked to nurse in the bathroom? Call, text or tweet The Milk Truck and they will come to the rescue, rolling up right where you’ve been asked to take cover or stop breastfeeding. In addition, the truck will offer services to working breastfeeding moms, making regular rounds on a “Pump Route” so that women have a place to pump during the work day.
If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you can follow the truck on Twitter @PghMilkTruck, or visit the Warhol Museum to see the truck on display.
