Breastfeeding Riot!

Breastfeeding in public has always been a controversial topic. Although this a natural process, that has many benefits for the nursing child, many people seem to look down upon public breastfeeding. But as we all know you cannot tell a child when or where not to be hungry. Private areas for breastfeeding are not always provided to mothers, so they are expected to cover-up while tending to their child’s needs.

Well, in Sweden last week, Natashja Blomberg took to Twitter in order to start a Breastfeeding Riot. Tweeting that she refuses to be shamed by others that are disgusted by her public breastfeeding. Other women have also joined the riot, tweeting and posting pictures of them feeding their children. The Huffington Post covers more on the story here.
