Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week

"Overheard: 'Breastfeeding is gross, especially in public, it is akin to urinating on the street corner in plain sight.'"

Photo by Rachel Valley: "When I created this photo exhibition, it was my goal to simply to have people see women nursing (since it is rarely seen in the West). It turned into this collection."

Thank you, Rachel, for allowing me to share your work. It is amazing and poignant.

how could anyone ever look at breastfeeding that way? Maybe that person shouldn't eat in public either. After all....I have seen some people eat, now THAT'S gross!

yeah some people do look gross when they eat- -or spit. I have seen people spit on the street or out a car window but I don't see others in an uproar over that!

I have never understood why some people have such an issue over seeing a baby nurse.

Boobs! It's all about the BOOBS! They should ONLY be in public when on a billboard, TV, advertisements, or any other place for MEN, not those hungry little babies. Bottles for babies, BOOBS for men! Love this society....

I went and looked at all her pics. LOVE them! My favorite was the little hand with the handful of scrunched up skin. BTDT! And my second favorite was the baby ready to pounce on the nipple with an absolute look of joy and anticipation on her face.
