Facebook breastfeeding policies

I have so much to catch you all up on! Carfree biking adventures! Mormon-y goodness! Knitting! And of course, life things.

But first, for those of you who have been following this blog for the past 6 years, you might remember a little thing called the Facebook Nurse-in of 2008!

Remember that? Remember how Facebook was all, "We're the man and go away!" Well, slowly over the past few years, we've had more nurse-ins and they've lightened up on their policies. They really didn't have a policy at all 6 years ago. Then it became, "It's ok as long as no nipples are showing..."

And now it's officially ok to have breastfeeding photos on Facebook.

A local lactivist, Paala, just sent me a video about how Facebook has made this (quietly) official. They mention me in the video. I'm the "Utah Mom Heather Farley..." Also, you may recognize the photo of me nursing Margaret from 6 years ago.

It's a bit satisfying to see this play out and watch the discrimination disappear. Hooray!

Linda is having a celebratory drink.
