Social networking giant, Facebook, recently caused an uproar among breastfeeding mothers when they removed breastfeeding photos due to their "revealing" nature. The Pregnancy Show spoke with members of a mom oragnization called Mom to Mom to find out their opinions on the controversy surrounding breastfeeding in public and the Facebook photo removal scandal.
Glamour magazine's hit blog Storked! also stirred up controversy recently when author Christine Coppa admitted to feeling uncomfortable seeing a woman shopping at Bloomingdales while breastfeeding.
Readers reacted, leaving close to 100 comments. The controversy is something that never quite goes away.
And seeing breastfeeding, to some, is a heartwarming thing. "I like seeing moms breastfeeding in public. To me, it says, I'm giving my baby what he needs and I'm not going to ignore my baby's needs or search for a place to hide just because some people aren't used to seeing babies fed the way nature intended," said Shira, mom of one.
"I view my breasts as sexual objects. Frankly, I feel a bit bad for women who have stopped seeing themselves and their bodies that way just because they have birthed a child. And I feel bad for their husbands," said Tova, mom of one. Tova breastfed her daughter for a short time, but said she never did so in public.
