Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with breastfeeding. Nothing at all. Taking a selfie while your baby gets a suckle of your zipple and then posting it to Instagram…that I have a problem with. Thoughts?

  1. I don’t see anything wrong with this. And I don’t understand why people have to make it into something perverse.

  3. I love seeing it….cannot wait til my baby is here any day now and encourages me to take breast feeding one day at a time. It is a hard task to do and I am soo proud when I see females doing it!

  5. Down in front! We can’t see!

  6. Joe on December 17th, 2012
  7. AJ, I completely agree! We really need to de-sexualize breastfeeding. It’s amazing that women have to feel ashamed to feed their children properly. Just my two cents…

  9. Its great that she does it, but she doesnt need to put a picture for everyone to see.

  21. It’s a beautiful natural thing. But there’s a baby in the way.

  22. netjnke on December 17th, 2012
  23. I don’t see an issue with this at all, she is just nourishing her baby. She should be proud that she chose to do what was best for her baby, and even prouder that she was able to make it work. Not all women are able to breast feed :-( Good for her!

  24. Amy on December 17th, 2012
  25. Shitting is a natural thing but I wouldn’t post a picture of me doing it on the internet. Well, okay I did JUST THAT ONE TIME but I took it down…………

  26. Nancy on December 17th, 2012
  27. Dumb bitch use both hands to hold your kid.

  28. G Spot Finder on December 17th, 2012
  29. Bunch of dimwits that assume the article is about breastfeeding. It’s about her posting a picture of it for the world to see. That’s the wrong part.

  30. R Fry on December 17th, 2012
  31. There’s nothing wrong with this, she’s feeding her child. People take pictures of babies drinking bottles, same thing. Breasts ARE FOR FEEDING they have not other purpose.

  32. Rachelle on December 17th, 2012
  33. No different than bottle-feeding pics. My kid attracts less attention latched to a boob than screaming while I fix a bottle.

  34. Ash on December 17th, 2012
  35. I post my nursling all over my facebook page… We are doing our part to normalize breastfeeding in a CRAZY dim America where all of the adverts on pages (just like this one) are about looking up celebrities skirts and that’s completely okay O_o Come on America do better.

  36. Amy on December 17th, 2012
  37. Ok dumbass Nancy. Eating and shitting are not the same thing. They are mammary glands, they are there to feed offspring. You see more walking passed Victoria’s Secret. Quit sexualizing breastfeeding. If you don’t like a picture on instagram don’t have that person on there. God forbid someone take a picture of something they think is beautiful and you disagree.

  38. Candice on December 17th, 2012
  39. What is she…like 14???

  40. Me on December 17th, 2012
  41. I disagree with rachelle……. breasts were made for 3 things, Looking at, Feeling up ANNNNNND Breastfeeding….

  42. Kortnie on December 17th, 2012
  43. Good for her. I’m always glad to see people making breastfeeding normal.

  44. steph on December 18th, 2012
  45. Girls can put a million “Look at my Boobies” pics every day. This one is fine. Unless you are getting a boner. Then you are sick. I see boobs every day and never think anything about it.

  46. becky donnelly on December 18th, 2012
  47. To bad the momma is only 12 years old.

  48. Mohawk496 on December 18th, 2012
  49. This is perfectly normal. I would rather see a woman in the mall breastfeeding her child than one walking around with her breast hanging out for the whole world to see for no reason. Don’t get me wrong, I love to see a nice set of breast, but they should be viewed in private by the one you love, not by the whole world!!!

  50. MajorTrouble30 on December 18th, 2012
  51. The thing I find wrong with this picture is that she’s holding the camera instead of her kid with both hands.

  52. Damoncord on December 19th, 2012
  53. There is nothing wrong with this.
    This is not a parent fail.
    Way to go girlie!!!
    More people need to realize breastfeeding is GOOD!!
    It is not sexual.
    This is Proud Parents fail for posting with a negative aspect.

  54. limon_b on December 19th, 2012
  55. Way to go on doing her part to normalize breastfeeding! I have a crapload of these on fb myself :)

  56. Caitlin on January 9th, 2013
  57. Good for her! Why is it okay for this site to post ads showing WAY more skin than this mama, but not okay for her to post a picture of breastfeeding? Nursing does not require two hands, either, as anyone who’s done it would know. People are so susceptible to suggestion. This is more of a fail on the part of the website, for posting it with a negative “put it away” type caption, than it is a fail on the part of the mama, who is feeding her baby in a totally normal way.

  58. Penny on January 20th, 2013
  59. !!!turns me on!!!

  60. Christina on January 29th, 2013
  61. I’m fine with it. People post picks of themselves bottle feeding their kids all the time, so what’s the big deal about this?

  62. Stephanie on February 6th, 2013
  63. People that are obsessed with “normalizing breast-feeding” and de-sexualizing it dont seem to understand: men and boys (and gay women) are sexually aroused by breasts. There is nothing sexual about breastfeeding your baby and all the more power to any woman that does, but to do it in public with your breast hanging out or to post public pictures of it is inappropriate!!! It is not the act of breastfeeding your baby, it is the body part that so happens to be needed to carry out this task that is hanging out for the world to see. Hmm why do we wear clothes every day? To say that public breastfeeding needs to be de-sexualized is like saying nudity should be desexualized, or the woman with the big bulging cleavage shouldnt be stared at. Breasts are sexualized, people. There is NO getting around that. So if you dont want to a. make people gape at you or b. make people uncomfortable, keep it modest.

  64. DD on February 23rd, 2013
  65. Well, they are right about desexualization and normalization of breasts for breastfeeding. Men are attracted to breasts and wide hips because they are symbolic of fertility, even if the man doesn’t realize that’s why he likes them. But that is (a primal instinct) because he wants a woman who can bare children and nourish them. It proves that it’s a thing to be normalized, and nothing to be ashamed of at all.

  66. lolol on June 5th, 2013
  67. No problem with breastfeeding. Wouldn’t have a problem if I spotted a woman doing it in public. Hell, I would have if my baby was able to suckle properly.
    BUT taking a photo and posting it… I have a problem with that. I don’t see it as anything sexual, I see it more as the woman posting it specifically to get reactions, whether it be positive or negative. Basically, it’s momma being a giant attention whore.
