New title for the blog

If you have visited this blog before, or if you followed a link from another blog or a search engine, you’ll notice a different title from what you expected to see.

I began the blog as an effort to counter the movement on Facebook and in other places that seems to consider breastfeeding obscene or profane. I’m sure you know what I mean — removal of breastfeeding pictures from Web sites, prohibitions against breastfeeding in public, etc. The original title, Breastfeeding Is Not Obscene, was a statement against that kind of thing. I didn’t know until the blog was under way that a group on Facebook had the same title as a protest movement.

Recently, though, I have come to feel that a positive thrust w0uld suit this blog better, so today I changed the title to Breastfeeding Is Beautiful. If you look through the pictures on here (and countless other pictures of women breastfeeding on other Web sites), I think you will agree with the new title.

Breastfeeding is beautiful — wherever it is done. A mother taking her newborn, infant, or toddler to her breast is one of the most beautiful sights in the world, whether it’s in a hospital bed, at home, or somewhere else.

Only the title has changed. With the cooperation of the wonderful mothers who share their pictures, I hope to continue posting photographs of women breastfeeding in many settings.
