    Mom (Lauren Ferrari) Banned From Facebook Over Controversial Breastfeeding Photo

    Lauren Ferrari, Mom, Banned From Facebook Over Controversial Breastfeeding Photo

    Seattle mom Lauren Ferrari posted a photo on Facebook of her 5-year-old pretending to nurse her 2-year-old. Within 24 hours, Facebook took the picture down "claiming Ferrari violated the site's policies," KOMONews reports. She was also banned from the social network for seven days.

    "When I posted it, I said, 'She says she's nursing her baby' ... She didn't say, 'Mommy look, she's kissing my boobie,'" Ferrari told the news station. She didn't think the photo was inappropriate.

    But Facebook -- and the police -- disagreed. Stefanie Thomas of the Seattle Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children told KOMONews that Ferrari's decision to post the photo was "poor parenting" because it's impossible to control where that photo might end up. "That's something that this family, that these girls, are going to have to ultimately deal with," Thomas said.

    For the full story, click over to KOMONews.

    Facebook didn't comment on their policy, but it wasn't the first time the site has deleted photos of young girls pretending to breastfeed. In January, they removed the page "Express Yourself Mums" because of a few photos of girls "nursing" their dolls. Later, Facebook apologized for their "error" and reinstated the page.

    Beyond questions of privacy and what is appropriate to post online, Ferrari also waded (perhaps unintentionally) into debates over how our society views breastfeeding. Last summer, parents and experts asked specific questions about whether young girls should be allowed to play at nursing at all after a European-produced "Breast Milk Baby" came to the U.S. Many critics were outraged claiming the doll -- which encourages kids to practice nursing -- sexualizes children. HuffPost blogger Tessa Blake saw it differently, arguing that it is natural for girls to mimic their moms. "My daughter has been lifting up her shirt and 'nursing' her babies for years. Are you suggesting this is shameful? What if she feeds her doll with a bottle? Is she not being a kid then, or is it just the breast that's the problem?" Blake asked.

    As Lisa Belkin pointed out in her blog post titled "It's Not Porn, People, It's Food," any time breastfeeding is in the spotlight, the conversation gains traction because people are talking about boobs. Similarly, "lactivists" who staged a nurse-in at Facebook's headquarters earlier this year when the social network pulled down actual photos of a mother nursing sought to make clear that breastfeeding is not obscene.

    Ferrari clearly agrees: "It's not sexual and they were just pretending," she said of her photo. "What's obscene about breastfeeding?"

    I'm also not comfortable with crazy, public, in your face breastfeeding. I mean, I have a kid, I did it for a few months. I never did it in public.
    That picture is not cute, its creepy. I have a friend on facebook (the same one thats crazy in everyone's face about vaccinations and circumcision) who posts with great delight everytime her 2 year old SON tries to nurse something.


    I never try anything, I just do it. Wanna try me?

    I think it's inappropriate. Although it's innocent, children may let other people pretend to breastfeed them.

    REALLY good point. Letting your kids think this kind of behavior is cute... erg. Breastfeeding is ONLY okay with Mommies.

    Any moms out there have any experience with needing to tell your kids this? How do you tell them it's not okay to go about grabbing stranger's boobs (or letting strangers grab their boobs) without demonizing?

    I'm sure some people will be like, "There's nothing dirty about children imitating appropriate behavior." Which is true. But my fear is that a child will run into a pedophile that will see that as an opportunity.

    And frankly, seeing children suck on each others nipples still skeeves me out.

    I'm actually pretty sure that this has happened in my house, but the picture, no matter how you look at it, looks weird. That took a lot for me to say.

    i have had toddlers do this.

    One mom said " hey, she isn't food. Don't touch" I loved it.

    You wouldn't post a pic up likes it's cute, though. It may be cute to a parent but its skeevy to others. And perfect for pedos

    True. I have pictures of Millie nursing her dolls, and OMG MY TODDLER BOYYYYYYYYY nursing his doll but two children doing it, I'd be afraid that someone would think I was coaching some weird pedo shit to happen. No thanks.

    I wouldn't be weirded out if it was a doll. Icked out, yes, but no weirded out. Technical terms, yanno.

    Yeah, my deal is how other people (meaning: perverts) would perceive it. It's really not the brightest idea to put on the internet were it could be saved and posted to child porn sites.

    That photo really has a creep factor about it. I have nothing against breastfeeding. I shoot newborn photos and I have never once seen the mother hand the baby off to another child and have that child pretend to breastfeed the baby. I never breastfeed my dolls either, so maybe I just creep out easily?!

    dolls are just not the same thing.

    Much respect always to you and your parenting.

    I nursed my daughter, and I never did it in public. If she was hungry and we were out to dinner or something, I would go in the car and STILL put a blanket over me. To me, that's a private moment with my child...I wouldn't want people staring at me anyway. And my daughter has never tried to breastfeed her dolls or anything like that, so that picture is weird. And I would never post that for the public to have it's way with.

    I'm not saying I think it's bad, I'm just saying that it wasn't for me.
