With many of us being on Facebook, just wanted to let you guys know that there is a virtual nurse-in in response to them taking down all the beautiful eating babies pics. All you have to do is change your profile pic to a nursing one on Dec. 27th.

Already planning on "nursing in." If this isn't a UA violation, maybe move this to lactivism?

...crashing from another DDC. What is the group called? The link takes me to my own list of groups. I figure if I add the group, then all my breast-feeding friends will learn about the nurse-in too. Thanks!

Count me in! I got a "warning" that they removed a photo I posted...too much areola showing is what I'm guessing.

Okay, I'm a wimp! But, I did post as my profile picture the "ultra boob" in my household: the light fixture. I never noticed that DH chose breast-shaped light fixtures when we built this house, until my breastfed daughter started to fixate on it and talk to it instead of us. Five years later my DS is doing the same thing-- holding conversations with the "big boob in the sky."

It's too funny-- I'll NIP with the best of them and whip out the boob anywehere. You name it, in church, in the mall, etc. But get me on Facebook and knowing that my former students will be seeing my profile pic, and I chicken out. I also chickend out about NAKing when I had a male former student visit, and went and fed my DS in the bedroom. Strange, huh?

Not strange Kelli, it's a product of the times we live in!

I changed mine, but there isn't a whole lot of boob showing that wouldn't already be showing in a cleavage shot... which is why I don't understand the whole removal of breastfeeding pics in the first place!

I changed mine to a lovely image of the Virgin Mary breastfeeding Jesus, and not being at all discreet about it. If she did it, it can't be obscene!

I thought your pic was really cute! We had one of those boob lights too, but it fell off the ceiling (we didn't install it). That's hilarious that your babies have fixated on it. I bet Calla would do the same if ours were still intact.

I NIP too but don't whip out the boob around certain people as well. So I understand!

One of my male friends posted a pic of his cat nursing her kitten. Awww.

A local radio station has been discussing the removal of a FB participant due to her posting pics of nursing. The radio host asked listeners to go see the pic and call in with their opinion on whether it's obscene. No one thinks it's obscene!!! YAY!!! Maybe our society/culture is finally opening their eyes! I need to go see this pic. I'll post a link if I find it.

That's sooo stupid. My pic was way more showy than that. I guess they didn't find it yet. Here it is:

Dangit I forgot! We had Maya baptized Sat. night and I guess I was too wrapped up in getting things ready for the reception afterwards.

WTG all you mamas who participated! I can't believe anyone would think those pictures are obscene.

I totally missed this Probably for the best as my brother, who is on my FB, probably didn't want to see a picture of me nursing! He's one of those guys who totally accepts it but get nervous when his sister is doing it!
