Today’s topic for the Breastfeeding Blog Hop: Online Breastfeeding Safety
I thought long and hard about how to keep myself and my nursling protected before starting my blog. I knew the majority of my blog would be about breastfeeding my son since that is a BIG part of our daily life.
I came up with some guidelines for our family:
- For my son – I will not use his name on here EVER. He desperately needs a blog nickname soon!!!
- For myself – no last names of anyone, address, or phone number will be posted on here.
- Pictures - if I wouldn’t put it on a billboard in front of my house I won’t post it online.
This does NOT mean that I will stop posting a few wonderful breastfeeding pictures. These photos are important to me! I feel that they help breastfeeding become mainstream and really normal. In fact you should go check out this beautiful uncovered photography.
I would personally have been very lost and depressed without Lori over at The Gnome’s Mom demonstrating how to nurse in public so I could get my butt out of this house. I’ve learned so much about breastfeeding from other women putting themselves out there and I don’t believe any of us should stop.
We will revisit our family guidelines and safety again in the future but for now this fits us.
What are your thoughts? Do you post breastfeeding photos of yourself online?
