 Have you ever posted a picture of your child breastfeeding on Facebook?  What kind of reactions have you gotten from your "friends?"

I don't post any pictures of my kids on fb. I wouldn't feel comfortable posting pictures of my breasts, anyway, with the variety of friends I have (including younger people). But I talk about it with all of my friends, and on my statuses as though it were the most normal thing in the world. I did post a few pictures of my recent water birth for about a week, then deleted them. I like spreading awareness of natural and "crunchy" ideas, but I don't like my kids being on the internet, and I don't like shoving it in people's faces.

 yeah, the very first one I posted ever the first comment I got was, "Not everyone wants to see."  I don't know why people even bother sometimes.

I have, and usually everyone is fine with it except one or two ignorant acquaintances.

Right... I try to only have friends on Facebook that I would feel comfortable with in person.  If I wouldn't be comfortable being me with them then forget them lol

Quoting preacherskid:

Yes, friends only of course.  If any of my friends disagree with what I have posted, they keep it to themselves.

It made me feel good :)

Quoting annaica:

 that's awesome!  I am glad everyone was so supportive :D


Quoting Nicolle_09:

The few times i was able to get my youngest to latch yes i posted the photos. I had actually made a post saying how i wanted too but was worried about being reported but a bunch of my friends started commenting saying i should so i did. Never had a negative thing said but everyone knew i struggled with it and was eping.

 Yeah!  I took my own pics when pregnant and this time I am going to get someone else to take maternity pics and someone there to take pics during and after birth!  Just have to find someone cheap yet awesome lol if that's possible :P

No.  My FB is mostly to keep in touch with scattered family, and I know a lot of them are more conservative.  Since I keep the page for their benefit, I won't post something the majority of them might feel awkward about.
