Breastfeeding in Fatigues!

I’m re- posting this even though I am sure that some people will see the photo and object to it because they can’t get it through their skulls that breast feeding is natural and that it should be done when babies are hungry!  And it should take place wherever nursed babies are.  And the mothers who are “displaying” this behavior are nothing other than mothers!  And I applaud women who think that it’s about time human babies got human milk.

I’m also annoyed that it’s okay to look at Kim Kardashian or the latest pinup actress or celeb with almost all of her breasts exposed, but you can’t show an infant taking nourishment from the bodies of their mothers because that is ‘tasteless’.

Here is the scoop from the UK’s Daily Mail-

The picture shows two mothers, Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna, both in active service, nursing their babies on an Air Force base.

The striking image has seen a flurry of comments, from supporters who say breastfeeding is a ‘fundamental right’ to another who compared it to ‘defecating in uniform’.

The photos were taken for the Mom2Mom Breastfeeding Support Group, set up by a military wife and mother-of-three to raise awareness of all women’s rights to breastfeed in public.

Mrs Echegoyen-McCabe is pictured breastfeeding her 10-month-old twin girls on her lunch break during a drill weekend as a member of the Air National Guard. By her side is friend Mrs Luna who feeds her toddler.

Crystal Scott, founder of Mom2Mom, asked the women to pose for the support group she founded in January to help those who live and work at the Fairchild Air Force Base outside Spokane, Washington.
