I want to be that mother who can stand up and say I am a strong confident mother and I know what is best for my children. We breastfeed and co sleep, We listen, We include, We eat chocolate and snot smoothies, we trampoline and grow frogs, we sling, we carry and we try and understand and work with our children without resorting to punishments, threats or coercion.

The whole complete facebook company does not like breastfeeding , is that really possible that a whole entire company does not advocate and accept that breastfeeding is a normal nurturing imperative  for  the health and well being of babies?   Is that really why they removed my account?  Do they really believe that breastfeeding pictures  are pornographic, sexually suggestive, or contains nudity.  If 'contains nudity' (if there is a nipple, it's nudity) is really an offence on facebook, surely there are other pages, well come on we KNOW there are other pages out there that have FAR more nudity than my two bumps.  

Its not against the law to discriminate against breastfeeding pictures,  because they are not a public authority, the law does not apply to them.  Facebook are lawless when it comes to breastfeeding.  Should the acceptance of breastfeeding be made law? 'You will accept breastfeeding pictures or you will be put in jail.'  It’s being done to some extent, right now in Indonesia.  Are we that far down the road to detrimental health and well being of our children that we need to do this too? 

Of course not, but there is no denying that the emotional and physical health and well being of our society is not exactly optimum.  You need only look at the hundreds of get healthy, feel better, sort out your life, deal with your emotions, talk about your feelings, fix your head, get fit, eat healthy, be healthy, stop dying early programs that are out there.  So it really makes sense when an answer is staring people in the face, the unequivocal research and statistics and studies.  Breastfeeding does things, course it does, otherwise why would the human body do it, and do it so brilliantly and do it exactly at the point when your baby is born.  

Makes sense really, when you think about it.  Breastfeeding contributes to a whole gamut of beneficialness for mother and baby. There is no denying the emotional bonding effectiveness of breastfeeding either. 

Its all been proven...many many times. *yawn* . Heard it all before, some people just refuse to listen. *shrug* what can I do? Carry on with what I am doing, I suppose.  

The other issue here is that I have lost my main support system of like minded friends and as a mother of two toddlers trying to raise my children in a conscious gentle way, they are actually more than just support, way more.  Meanwhile the MAJOR breastfeeding support group The Leaky Boob has also been deleted, show your support here 

Of course it is possible its for another reason...it could be the bare flesh *shock* *horror*...don't you just love our society that has people who are so *fucked* up and far gone that they need to get their pleasure this way. But that's a whole nother issue.

Meltdowns - BF helps
Losing the Plot - BF helps
Breastfeeding - YES.  It does exactly what its for and much much more.
