I'm halfway on this issue.

I think breastfeeding is absolutely natural and women should be allowed to do it anywhere, anytime their child is hungry---IF some modesty is used. I used to have a sling to put the baby in and then a shoulder blanket I tucked over so that no one really knew unless they were right up talking to me.

I breastfed mine and did it anywhere and no one ever really knew, so there was never fuss to be made and no one ever once said anything or looked at me twice.

As for Facebook? Well, if their friends and family care to look at such a thing, what's the big deal? I don't see an issue there. It's just a photo.

Are you saying the baby should go hungry because you cant control your eyes? If you don't want to see it don't look.


But people think its ok to do it not only in public but in social settings. Sometimes you cant get away. And trust me Im not looking but it becomes an uncomfortable and akward situation. The mother could simply excuse herself and find somewhere private easy enough.

Next you'll say that it's disgusting for people to post images of a dog feeding her pups.

What's the difference?

Having said that though, the image supplied is pretty trashy looking!

Why would I? I see the benefits of it everyday. I breastfed my son for 14 months, and he is strong, healthy and confident. I think some people need to take a reality check.

And did you see that photo at the end of the article?
No wonder it was taken down.

I agree. Breast is best
But still. It does make people uncomfortable.

I didn't see full nudity. I saw a baby on one side and a breast pump on the other, both breasts covered, somewhat. Not a flattering pic but not what I would call "nudity."

I'm kinda baffled by the idea of breast feeding (or, by extension, breasts) being offensive or disgusting in any way.
I mean, what exactly is offensive? Is it the nudity? The idea of the baby taking the mothers "precious bodily fluids"? The idea of those little gums on her nipple? Is it a child porn thing? I honestly can't fathom where this disgust would come from.

But, as always, that's just me.

Me too to be honest...I was a very discreet breastfeeder , but even then, when you find a quiet corner, there are guys who will go out of there way to cop a look, so it is a no win situation.

It is a crazy world we live in, where a little bit of harmless non-sexual nudity is considered inappropiate. I will never understand such twisted, prudish thinking.


Dont like it? Dont look. Simple as that.

Why do you think it's inappropriate?

Take a woman walking out in public who decides to take her shirt off. How many men would complain? None. For whatever reason, when there's a baby attached to one, all of a sudden it's disgusting. ?? I don't quite understand the mentality. It's a boob, for crying out loud. Men walk around shirtless all the time and it's considered acceptable. The only difference is their "boobs" aren't big. Well, some aren't.

I just think its obnoxious. And it does make me think of animals. I think it should be private.

What about the weirdo's that keep feeding their kids breast milk until they are like seven? Do you all think thats all beautiful and special?

There are heaps of shirtless photos of me on facebook - is it only nudity when it's a female?

I don't get it... can't they set their pictures to private so only them and people they want can see the pics? What is Facebooks problem?
