Jacque Reid talks to Nicole Sandifer the Founder of Black Women Do Breastfeed, in response to the California mother that caught fire for posting a photo of her breast feeding her daughter at her college graduation.

“Her classmates wanted to meet her baby so she brought her over. She started getting fussy and they didn’t mind if she nursed,” Saderfer says.

  1. I believe that some people seem to miss the point. Breastfeeding is NATURAL, it is the BEST thing for our children, there are MAJOR health benefits for baby and mother,however there are some things that should be held in a more private and intimate setting and Breastfeeding is one of those things. Having sex is natural, but should we do it openly on the bus, in the grocery store, during jury duty? NO!!!! I am an advocate of breastfeeding. I nursed my last child and was soooo sorry that I had not nursed the first two. However, when in public nursing, I always covered my breastfeeding child and my exposed breast with a blanket or something. He was able to eat whereever and whenever, but my private parts were not exposed to the world. We need to learn to keep private, intimate things, private and intimate. There was NOTHING wrong about the mother feeding her hungry child in public. What was wrong is that she did not cover that part of herself as she did so!!!
