Alison SchneiderAlison Schneider looks so happy while she breastfeeds her baby. Her comment under this picture on Facebook reads, “Ahhh, happy breastfeeding hormones! I am like sooooo at peace with the world….” I’m sure her infant was at peace with the world, too, while taking nourishment from Mom’s breast.

At this moment, Mom is his whole world

Dawn GuyWhile Dawn Guy poses for a photograph, MacGregor continues to enjoy Mom’s milk. In a comment under this picture on Facebook, Dawn commented about the convenience of breastfeeding: “It’s helped us out immensely; we pack a sippy for my older son and some snacks and off we go.”

She also wrote, “I’ve nursed in front of everyone I know at some point in the last two and a half years.” Wouldn’t it be nice if people in general were more accepting of the natural, loving behavior of a woman nursing her child at her breast?
