Breastfeeding Military Women Cause Freakout

This is a big deal for some as yet undetermined reason.

Air National Guard members Terran Echegoyen-McCabe (L) and Christina Luna ® have drawn a lot of attention, including scorn, for these photos in which they’re breastfeeding while in uniform.

The seemingly harmless photos were posted on the Facebook page of breastfeeding support group Mom2Mom, and the reaction was overwhelming. While most supported the two women, a vocal minority claimed the photos were disrespectful to the uniform.

There are no rules in military conduct against breastfeeding in uniform and the moms say they do this all the time on Fairchild Airforce Base in Spokane, Washington. Mom2Mom were forced to issue a statement saying they support the troops and are in no way attempting to exploit or disparage the military.
