    yes.they ban pictures of babies in the tub so breastfeed definitely should be cause pictures of babies in the tub are cute but pictures of breastfeeding are just gross. why would anyone take a pic of that in the first place

  • NO! It's a natural thing! For all the pervs and prudes don't freaking look! There is nothing sexual about a baby feeding on a breast.

  • Absolutely not! What do pictures of breastfeeding show what a bathing suit or low cut picture doesn't show? I personally would never post a breastfeeding picture online just for fear of some creep getting ahold of it, but if someone else wants to, why not! It might be inspiring to others.

  • And to the anon...no they do not ban pictures of kids in the tub off facebook. Maybe if there isn't something covering their genitals, but I have several pictures of my son in the tub up there. He has a wash cloth covering his penis and no one ever said anything to me about it.

  • I don't think they should be banned, but personally I wouldn't put pictures like that up as public anyway. Maybe viewable by friends, but even that I'm not sure about... To me, pictures like that would be personal.

  • No. I wouldn't post them myself, but I don't think they should be banned.

  • Why would they? Unless the breast is completely exposed or there is some serious nipple showing (which if you are bfing- there shouldn't be) then it really isn't that different then all those wonderful bra/bikini shots.

  • Facebook is privately owned. They should be able to ban whatever the hell they want.
