In my opinion breastfeeding babies in public is not a crime so I do not understand the storm occurring everytime a mother is photographed breastfeeding in public.
Recently in China , someone photographed a mother breastfeeding her baby in a subway train , the picture went viral after being reposted by Beijing Tale ,a volunteer organization that clears fliers in the subway …they actually criticized the mother for exposing her breast in public. ( called it exposing sexual organ )
I don’t understand this ,baby’s need to be fed and a baby does not tell you exactly when it needs to be fed which means baby’s are breastfed on demand ,what if you are in public ? There are many more sexual exposures going on in our society of today than a breastfeeding mum.
Many online users ofcuz came to the mothers rescue by bashing the original poster of the picture and the organization for blatantly sharing the private moment of a mum breastfeeding. Ou Qian ,a Guangzhou doctor and mother herself said ..” it would be ideal if she had a nursing cover but also think it’s not that big deal “…when a mum is feeding a child it’s not a sexual organ ..

Well she posted a picture of herself breastfeeding her baby while doing hair ,makeup and nails and
She wrote, “What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep”?
She wrote that it was a kind of therapy for her .
“I had lost my mum, I’d had a baby, and I’d been breastfeeding, and I was in a very emotional place as a woman. I knew instinctually and talked to Brad about it, that if I could find something that would get me physical again, it would be like therapy, because everything was making me cry.”
This is just a few of the famous mothers who have posted intimate pictures of themselves promoting breastfeeding. People should find a better spot than criticizing mothers about this . I feel if a mother is comfortable about it then she should go ahead and breastfeed at anytime she wants .
