I'm an avid supporter of breastfeeding and I don't mind breastfeeding in public. However, I think there are things that just might cross the line. A female service member breastfeeding in uniform might be one. I'm not completely sure how I feel about it, I kinda have mixed feelings.
I think that when breastfeeding in public it should be done appropriately. If you have to wonder what is appropriate, then I don't have time to explain it lol
But I'm wondering if breastfeeding in public, in uniform, is really appropriate, even when covered up. I've always been told that when in uniform, service members are suppose to be professional at all times. Now, while I know that it just doesn't happen b/c there are some bad apples, I don't think that breastfeeding in uniform looks professional. I thought women who were breastfeeding were given time to pump throughout the day? I know I have seen female soldiers do it. (Well not seen, but I have been in the bathroom at the JAG office and heard it lol)
What are your thoughts on this topic? and what do you think of this picture? Professional pics of breastfeeding in uniform? (I personally see nothing wrong with the picture if that's what they want in their baby album lol)
((picture removed b/c apparently I "stole" it, even though it was all over FB lol... the picture had two female soldiers in it, in uniform...the one on the left was breasfeeding 2 babies and the one on the right was breastfeeding 1 baby - you can find the picture HERE))
This picture was brought to my attention this morning and I thought it would be a good topic for my page - *AWDIWH* - However, I am doing a blog post instead of posting it directly on the page b/c I know someone will report the picture if I do.
