Breastfeeding Photo Project

by on January 29, 2011



New here?

You'll probably want to hear about how I became an accidental lactivist first. And maybe see some of the media coverage.

Over the next few weeks I'll be talking about what happened after the hoopla. My thoughts on the news coverage, what's happening with the human rights complaint, why people are sending me hate mail for breastfeeding, and more. Check back often.

Are you a breastfeeding mum in Quebec? Interested in making public breastfeeding more accepted?

There is a cool photo project called “Allaiter partout… simplement!” [Breastfeed everywhere… of course!]. The plan is to take photos women breastfeeding in public, for a gallery showing this October during International Breastfeeding Week.

The organizers hope that by showing photos of women breastfeeding in public, the general public will get used to the idea and be more accepting.

You can participate by contacting the group via their website or facebook group. They are especially interested in including photos of twins, toddlers, tandem nursing, visible minorities, etc.
