The Feminist Breeder (Blog Here) is a blogger that I LOVE, and recently her pictures on Facebook were reported, getting her suspended for seven days.
According to the Facebook Help :
"Does Facebook allow photos of mothers Breastfeeding? Yes. We agree that Breastfeeding is natural and beautiful."
She contacted them and her account was reinstated with an apology. So she is doing a 72 hour campaign to "normalize breastfeeding" and I would like to share!
Check out the The Feminist Breeder on Facebook to support the campaign!
And so that I don't get any undeserved comments...I know a LOT of women who formula feed and that is their decision! I love breastfeeding and I do believe that is what is best for my Kennedy :D And the American Academy of Pediatrics agrees with me :
"Breastfeeding and human milk are the normative standards for infant feeding and nutrition. Given the documented short- and long-term medical and neurodevelopmental advantages of breastfeeding, infant nutrition should be considered a public health issue and not only a lifestyle choice. The American Academy of Pediatrics reaffirms its recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for about 6 months, followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced, with continuation of breastfeeding for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant. Medical contraindications to breastfeeding are rare."
and so does the World Health Organization....
