Pope Francis Encourages Mothers To Breastfeed in Sistine Chapel

Pope Francis has encouraged women attending a ceremony in the Sistine Chapel to feel free to breastfeed their children in the church.




“The ceremony is a little long, someone’s crying because he’s hungry. That’s the way it is,” the pontiff said.

“You mothers, go ahead and breastfeed, without fear. Just like the Virgin Mary nursed Jesus,” he told worshippers attending an annual ceremony commemorating the baptism of Jesus.

The Argentine pope on Sunday baptised 28 children – 15 boys and 13 girls.

He has previously voiced his support for breastfeeding, including in public.

The benefits of breastfeeding include providing optimal nutrition and an immune system boost for babies, while helping mothers bond with infants and speeding maternal weight loss after birth.

In many countries around the world, however, women are still widely discouraged from breastfeeding, especially in public.

That is very good! I breastfed my boy so many times inside the Church, even the Priest and the old women told me once to feel free and breastfeed him while he was hungry.
Breastfeeding is a natural thing.

Thank God I live in place where people see it as normal.
An American couple once looked at me with some very bad eyes because I was breastfeeding my boy inside a long journey train; whereas some other women saw it as a normal thing.

Oh, I hate political correctness.

As a mother even if you have a baby food that can equal breastfeeding, it's good to try and breastfeed because of the bonding, and in the process you will begin to take note of other interesting things concerning you baby.

Long live SDK.

i think it was discourage initially because of the way some women go about the breastfeeding. some would just bring the whole breast in public and it's not proper. i think women should be mindful when breastfeeding in public. good one Pope Francis

Thats a fallacy. It is indeed important for mothers to breastfeed. But to tie it to bonding or taking note of things about the baby doesn't follow. You cant say that because a woman didnt breastfeed for one reason or the other that there will be no bond. I didnt hv to breastfeed my sisters son to bond with him or know things about him

I agree. Its still the woman's body to guard whether breastfeeding or not.
