Breast Feeding

 Ok, not trying to start I debate.  This post is for your comments only, not to fight.

Watching Ch 7 News and they are doing a survey, so I was curious and thought I would ask their question too.

Do you mind people posting pictures to cafemom or facebook of themselves or someone else breastfeeding?

I was a breastfeeding mom, but never took any photos of myself or breastfed in public.  Not for any other reason than my own insecurities about myself.

I breastfed but I never took pictures and I never breastfed in public. If I knew I was going to be out for a long period of time, then I pumped.

I agree with this:)

I don't care either way, but I do not agree with censorship. Or double standards. It seems pretty stupid that a woman can post a pic of herself in a bikini or with cleavage to the wazoo, but a pic of breasts doing what they were intended to is violating terms of use.

I have nursing pics, never felt the need to post them to FB, but not because they show my breasts. I also nursed wherever my kids needed to, without a thought. I think its a sad commentary on the way BF is looked at in the US.

It doesn't bother me at all. I have only one photo of me breastfeeding. You can't even tell, it just looks like he's sleeping in my arms.
