It’s a long standing debate: are breastfeeding photos beautiful or inappropriate?  While many are on the fence about the argument, Facebook has taken a dominant side.

According to Facebook’s help page, about three weeks ago they changed the policy on breastfeeding pictures in the news feed.

Answering a question on the help board, they said, “Yes. We agree that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful and we’re glad to know that it’s important for mothers to share their experiences with others on Facebook. The vast majority of these photos are compliant with our policies.”

It continues to explain most photos end up being flagged by other users.  “Please note that the photos we review are almost exclusively brought to our attention by other Facebook members who complain about them being shared on Facebook.”

In the past, Facebook has been a major culprit in removing photos of women breastfeeding and citing them as inappropriate.
