What Do You Think Of Breastfeeding Pics?

I see some moms with pics of their child nursing as avatars and I have to say, I think that's pretty disgusting. I don't want to see your boob. What do you think?

  • Personally, I think it's a little......odd. I use to be all for people BF in public until I had kids and my son was pointing at a boob out in public and all that. I don't really agree with openly BF in public. Yes, I do think it should be covered up, for the sake of the kids in the public. As for the pics, like I said, if you want to take pics, that's fine, I just feel a little weird when I see them.

  • I think Madonna and child is the most angelic pose


    Sorry you are too insecure with yourself to be able to handle seeing a nursing baby.

  • While there is nothing wrong with BF I don't need to see it. Cover up.

  • I say as long as the pics are not showing a woman's nipple and areola, I think they are fine. Just because it's legal to breast feed does NOT mean it's ok to show the world your boob. Show a little modesty.

  • I don't mind seeing anyone breastfeed, public or picture as long as the baby is under 12 months. After one, its gross, makes me feel uncomfortable and creepy. I once dry heaved cos some women stuck a video on youtube of herself feeding her toddler who she was having a full on conversation with. Past 1, i find its very grim and unnecessary.
