Welcome and purpose of this blog

January 29, 2009

A story on CNN recently inspired me to launch this blog. It dealt with a social Web site that was removing pictures of women breastfeeding because someone considered the pictures obscene or pornographic.

How ridiculous! There is nothing more beautiful than a woman using her breasts for the purpose for which they were intended — nourishing her child.

I decided that women who breastfeed deserve a place where they can proudly display pictures of themselves nursing their children. Here it is! I will gladly post pictures along with comments that you might send me if you want to tell something about yourself and your family. Send the pictures as attachments via e-mail to barbbarry@ymail.com.

Even if you don’t have a picture to send, you can write your thoughts on breastfeeding to me at that address. Comments in response to posts are also welcome. Let the world know how you feel about this important topic.
