Each time you post one of these, I say to myself, "Self, you're not going to click through (from my blog reader) - you're already pro-breastfeeding..."

But each time I click through anyway and am just fascinated, especially by these historical ones.

Gooooooo boobies!

In the US I don't think that would have happened out in public during that time. Some other countries are so much more comfortable and natural about breastfeeding.
