I support breastfeeding and breastfed my twins for 27 months! I also breastfed their 3 older sisters and I am currently breastfeeding our newest addition to the family! Yes, Facebook... breastfeeding is definitely normal.

Photo from blog post: On Weaning Our Twins. I also wrote about our twins home birth story.

I just had a photo shoot of my daughter (now 4, weaned at 3), and my son, now 10 months (was 8 at the time). I specifically had nursing photos taken, wanting to remember my last nursling ;)

This picture has been in one of my FB albums since January and is still there. Then again, there is no boob showing, and my pictures are set to friends only, so unless one of my freinds is vehemently anti-BF, no one would've reported it.

 

Here are two more that I love, not on FB yet but I could post and see what happens...

OK, I realized that I did have ONE bf pic!  This is less than an hour after Julia was born.  I look great, don't I?  Give me a break, I'd just delivered a 10#, 4oz baby at home!

Lets keep this going! It disturbed me to hear on the news that a womans profile was deleted for a bfing being obsene! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! What has this world come to. I am sorry but breastfeeding is no different then feeding a baby with a bottle! I am due any day now with my second and plan on breasfeeding everywhere and anywhere you dont like it dont look is my theory! They are even deleting pictures where baby is latched on and you cant see a nipple.....so my question is whats the difference between that and a girl wearing a bikini top that just covers her nipples?

Luckily so far nobody has reported any of my photos on Facebook, But I am so outraged by the deletion of people's posts such as Emma Kwasnica and others whose pages are dedicated to breastfeeding support.

i love seeing all these gorgeous pics.

i wonder if the facebook content moderators are just super lazy and know that instead of actually having to look for obscene images they could instead just search "breastfeeding" and fill their quota of images/content to get rid of. it seems like the content mods have to be specifically searching for breastfeeding groups/educators.

don't some states have statutes making it illegal to harass a breastfeeding mother in public?...so couldn't someone in one of those states make the case that they are being sexually harassed by facebook and their human and legal rights are being infringed? being web-based doesn't exempt them from obeying the law. essentially facebook is asking breastfeeding women to leave its place of business, and beyond that, actually cutting off resources, support, and communication for all breastfeeding women by targeting breastfeeding support groups rather than just individuals. so any state where it's illegal to make a woman leave a business because she is breastfeeding, a case could be made against facebook. just a thought.

I think you make some great points.  There are so many levels of tolerance of who finds what offensive.  I have a few friends on FB who have pictures that shock me.  They are of a crude or sexual nature.  I just click away from them.  Do I want to see your buddy pooping?  No! But I just move on.  Being on FB is a choice and you don't have to do it if you are sensitive.  Of course, a pic of breastfeeding doesn't even come up on my radar....

 

Peggy, you have really made me think a lot over the weekend about the whole subject in general.  I nurse my 17 month old in front of her older brothers, 11 and 10 all the time and never think twice about it.  They even play with and talk to the baby while she is nursing.  I hope that is a positive, even if subliminal, message for them that it's all normal and expected.  I have also noticed that I nurse openly in front of my nieces, ages 4-12.  Frankly, I think it would be great to expose young men and women to all kinds of womens' breasts!  (I know, I hear the hoorays from the middle school now!) But think about it.....aren't many of us women having body image problems from ideals in the media?  What if girls and boys knew that breasts come in all shapes, sizes, colors, etc?  My only exposure to breasts as a young girl were just ones occasionally seen on a movie.  Of course they were "perfect".  What about normal breast?  I never saw them.

OMG!!! I can't find any! That makes me so so upset. I can't believe I don't have any. I will be getting some. The first 6 weeks were really hard for us with bfing and I guess I just never got a pic. 

 

This is a group to join on Facebook. Don't know if anyone posted but if it got A LOT of members, fb would notice.

I just wanted to let everyone here know that Shari Criso is having a live broadcast/discussion about this topic (and other general discriminations against motherhood) tonight on her UStream channel. You can watch as she answers our questions while we all discuss in the chat room! Here's more info and where you need to RSVP (it's TONIGHT, Tuesday, at 8:30pm EST): http://sharicriso.com/mybabyexperts/my-tv-show/

 

(FYI - she does these shows every Tuesday night. Different topic and sponsors/prizes each week related to babies/pregnancy/mom!)

I'll have to wait until I go home to post pics of DS#1 bfing, I guess. I may go change my fb profile pic, though. I enjoyed the video show with Peggy. I breastfeed anywhere and everywhere we go. I do try to be discreet in front of people I don't k ow well when it's a somewhat intimate setting, but I do 't really worry too much. I hate those nursing shawls! How does anyone use them? They look HOT! I agree that we need to normalize breastfeeding. I nursed at my friend's daughter's 10th birthday party. My friend didn't care, but another mom comments about my nursing in front of the boys and one dad (who was sitting chatting with my hubbby during the party). I wish she had said something to my face instead of to my friend. I would have liked to have let her know my views. :-)

All these photos are so beautiful!

 

I was just listening to Shari Criso's program and was inspired to dig up this photo. It was taken in 1977, of my mom BFing my baby brother, and me my little doll. I love it!
