We took our son to his first beach outing today and while we were there he got hungry. Naturally I fed him and my DH snapped a photo. I thought it was a nice NIP photo and modest enough to post on a CLOSED BREASTFEEDING GROUP that I am a member of.

Here is the original picture and a screen capture of the report from facebook. Is there anything I can do?? Is it actually offensive?? as I said, this was only on the BF-ing site and not on my personal page or timeline.

It honestly made me cry...happy Mother's Day to me :(

Oh please. I can't help but wonder if anybody actually looks at the pics being reported or if they automatically delete when photos are reported.

That's a wonderful picture. Happy Mother's Day!

It's not offensive. This is one of the many reasons I stay away from Facebook. Went on there today for the first time in a long time.

Fight it.  Facebook TOS define offensive nudity/pornographic material with regards to breasts as showing a nipple.  They say on the face of things that they support breastfeeding, call them on it- your pic shows less than some of mine that I have posted on my page and as profile pics and they have not been removed.  For example:

 This was my profile pic for over a month

 This is posted in the birth pics of ydd, the first time she latched and nursed at seven days old, we took LOTS of nursing pics that day.

If they end up deleting it that would be crazy. I have seen people post porn on fb and all you are doing is showing a nip pic ugh

Taken directly from Facebook Terms and Community Standards page:

Nudity and Pornography

Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo's David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.
