Breast Feeding

Baby Talk Cover Controversy

I am all for breastfeeding. I am all for breastfeeding in public. I usually wear a cover just so that people don’t stop and stare, but I have seen many women feed their babies without one and I don’t give it a second thought. With this being said I am not sure what all of the craziness is about on the cover of babytalk magazine. The baby is eating and looking up at his mommy. You can’t even see any nipple. What is the problem people?

Baby Talk, a free magazine, received 700 letters concerning their recent cover. Some calling it gross and inappropriate. Most still associate the breast with sex and are not mature enough to realize that a baby also needs it to grow.

I think it’s common knowledge that if you are going to read a Pregnancy or Baby Magazine somewhere within its pages you will see a nursing baby. The controversy rests in the fact that with the image being on the cover you will see it whether you plan to or not.
