public breastfeeding supported in Christianity Today!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was very happy to come across this article in Christianity Today's Dec 2012 issue. I am one of those women who have had to deal with unfriendly church attitudes about nursing in church.

Thanks for sharing! I too have faced unfriendly attitudes for nursing in church.

It is so sad when you think that one of the most famous statues is of the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus at her bare breast !

Thanks for sharing.

I read that article a while ago, and it's a good one.

 

One thing that gives me comfort is that I've known a couple women who've openly breastfed in church (though I'm not paying attention to that during worship time. I've seen them feed their babies during praise team practices and such, when I'm close by), and nobody seems to give pause.
