Complaints have been filed before a Kollam court and the Kerala State Child Rights Commission against a Malayalam fortnightly magazine for featuring a model breastfeeding a baby on its cover page. The model was featured in the latest edition of Grihalakshmia sister publication of leading media group Mathrubhumi. Asked for his reaction on the case being filed on the matter, Joint Managing Director of Mathrubumi group M V Shreyams Kumar said it was done for cheap publicity.
Rachel McAdams had a baby in April and she's breastfeeding. What that means is that she has to interrupt her day numerous times, whether she's shooting a movie or a magazine cover, to pump. It's not often that we get to see what that looks like.
Supporters and critics can't stop talking about it. There's even a threatened lawsuit. When my son was born, I discovered just how vitally important that help is.
My drinking buddy. Think the breastfeeding selfie trend is just a thing for your Instagram friends to share with each other? Not quite! While the women in your new moms classes are sharing pics of themselves and their nursing tots with family and friends, celebrity moms are sharing theirs with millions of fans around the world.

Thousands of women have had their pictures of removed from profiles and online albums after they were classified as "obscene content" by the site. Many have also received warnings that they may be barred from using the site. Mothers around the world have rallied agaist the policy and some have even picketed the Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, California - under the banner of the Mothers International Lactation Campaign, to complain about the policy which they say stigmatises breastfeeding and demeans women.
However, there are still many people who are truly startled by the image and wonder what it means. These fans have reacted with surprise, some with disgust, and others with laughter. I have heard many fans give interpretations, like "She is calling her ex-boyfriend a pig" to "She is refering to all men as pigs".
The Naomi and Ruth Project was initiated in an African American church setting after several young women began breastfeeding their babies in church. This discovery sparked a new mentoring relationship in the community. The Indiana Black Breastfeeding Coalition plans to document these relationships and the positive impact they have on mothers and their decision to breastfeed.
But these powerful, beautiful, sometimes raw images of women breastfeeding their babies are proof of the strength, determination and love that moms from across the country have for their newborns. This beautiful bride took the to-have-and-to-hold part of her wedding vows to a whole new level as she nursed her new baby boy mid-ceremony. That can be especially true for babies with Down syndrome, whose poor muscle tone may interfere with a good latch.
