Juwan Howard understands the power of patience. It should serve No. 3 Michigan well this week. Thirty seasons after first arriving in Ann Arbor as part of the famed Fab Five, the second-year coach watched Franz Wagner match his season-high with 21 points and Isaiah Livers finish with 16 points and 10 rebounds as the Wolverines pulled away or a 73-57 victory at Indiana — and to the precipice of Howard’s first Big Ten crown.

Frida Mom — which sells postpartum recovery essentials — released an ad titled “Stream of Lactation” online this week, promoting a new line of breastfeeding accessories. The ad follows exhausted women trying to nurse their babies and does not censor the women’s breasts in any way. “Is it too early to contact a lactation consultant?” asks one mother in the ad, seemingly frustrated over a small amount of milk pumped from her breast. “Am I bad mom if I stop now?” asks another woman. “Good moms should know how to do this.” Watch Below: In another scene, a mother can be seen trying to unclog a milk duct in the shower using an electric toothbrush. Another mom can be seen pulling cabbage leaves — which some women use to relieve breast engorgement — out of her bra. “Whether starting or stopping, breastfeeding is an emotional and physical journey full … [Read more...] about Uncensored Breastfeeding Ad to Air During Golden Globes
