Fair-weather Facebook Friend
& Facebook VS. Breastfeeding Moms

If you were my friend on Facebook and now you're not my friend on Facebook, PLEASE do not be offended or take it personally... I even removed JustRose who I've known in my real life since I was 4 because she had too many blog folks...

I am one of the organizers for my 20 year high school reunion and I need to start using my Facebook for that purpose...with real info. etc.

So, rest assured, it wasn't anything you said, did or posted.


Speaking of Facebook, have you read about the ban on breastfeeding pics (they've been deemed "Obscene")? Well, of course, I was livid when I first heard about this...maybe some of us think that since our boobs were created to feed babies that bottle feeding pictures are obscene...

So in my rage I quickly joined the group Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene (Official petition to Facebook) and stated planning all the breastfeeding shots I could have The Man know, always the rebel.

BUT, then I started looking through some of the pics that have been banned (linked on that group site) and...well, ewwww.

Breastfeeding your baby is natural and beautiful in my opinion. I breastfeed both my boys for 16 months and am currently breastfeeding the J-Man. I am not someone that will hide in another room or make my child eat under a tent. That being said, breastfeeding your big kid is a bit a lot disconcerting and I might agree with Facebook in banning the evidence...
