  1. The funny thing is that Facebook has no problem with pictures of half-naked women, as long as they’re young, hot, and don’t have a baby attached to the boob. Apparently breasts are only to be used for play, no work.

    Although I don’t think they’ve banned anyone since the first incident.

  3. You’re so right! We are a family with two small kids. We travel a lot and find the rest of the world light years ahead of us in this area. The USA is not a family friendly country. It’s a shame.

  5. I am pro breastfeeding. Some of the reasons why breastfeeding is not acepted is as a result of some of the unpleasant remarks.
    In addition to some people comparing it with excretment. How could it be compared? It is the natural way that a baby has to get his or her food. Would anyone like to eat in a toilet? ofcourse not then why hide?
    When the public see breastfeeding widely publised it would become more of the norm which is needed. Society need to be exposed to more breastfeeding mothers whereby the taboo could be gradually eliminated.

  7. I am *totally* with you. Thank god for La Leche (http://www.llli.org/) – they’re strong activists in getting this natural and supremely healthy (for baby *and* mommy) nurturing re-accepted into society.

    Isn’t it strange how we got to this point? I’ve heard the blame lies to a large part with the pushing of formula in the 50s. The medical model went overboard…

    Best of luck with your new addition! Mine is 7 this month, and she’s a doll.

  9. agree! facebook should also allow pictures of breast massages for new moms, breast cancer examination, breasts while taking baths, they’re all positive things.

  11. Nothing wrong with breastfeeding in public. And it is generally done discreetly. But, why the need to post pictures of it? Why not also post pictures of breast pumping? Why not post pictures of the whole baby making process? From beginning to end?

  13. vman, even in the anonymity blog comments offers, apologizing and saying you’re wrong takes takes guts and humility, and more so to do it without even saying “but…”.

    Impressive. Well done, mate.
