Public Breastfeeding Quiz
Breastfeeding Photos Helps to Clarify That Breastfeeding is a Natural Choice

The benefits of breastfeeding are well-known yet the public breastfeeding controversy continues to rage.  The jokes continue and moms are either so embarrassed that they often resort to feeding their newborns in uncomfortable and often unsanitary conditions to avoid condemning, judgmental stares. 

Can you guess the most popular baby shower gift that costs less than $20?
Opinions voiced in recent conversation that I had with couples who had either breastfed or were planning to do so indicated that, in their experience, diners in a restaurant would not be satisfied with a mom using a nursing cover.

Their belief is that the general public would prefer that a mother would excuse herself to feed her baby.

Have we really drifted so far away from what is really "natural"?

I put together these pictures and this public breastfeeding quiz to (hopefully?) clarify the situation to those who are so disgusted by the sight of women breastfeeding discretely in a public area that they would think it fitting for a baby to be banished to the restroom or a car in the parking lot.

Critics might say that it is natural for animals to breastfeed in public because they have no choice where humans should seek to do so in privacy. I would like to go on the record as being a huge fan of tending to babies in privacy for many reasons. For instance, we change babies in privacy not just for the sake of modesty but for sanitary reasons. When my baby gets fussy, I would prefer to rock her away from noise and conversation but that is my choice and a personal decision just as, in my opinion, where a mother chooses to feed a child should be.

Breastfeeding Laws

Great strides have been taken in recent years to put laws in place that make the practice of the art of breastfeeding more convenient and legal. I am very proud that the State of Mississippi requires that licensed child care facilities offer breastfeeding mothers a sanitary area (other than a toilet) where they can breastfeed or pump. They are also to provide a refrigerator for breast milk storage and to train staff how to safely store and handle the pumped milk (aka: liquid gold) and to display promotional information on breastfeeding practices to their clients.
