So This Beautiful Mama had Professional Photos taken of her and her gorgeous babes Breastfeeding in a Forest. What a Beautiful way to celebrate Motherhood Right?

She Decided to Submit her photos in a contest hoping to win a Mall Gift Card but she was quickly rejected. She received a reply saying she was disqualified from the contest due to the nature of the photo. They added that while her photo was lovely and tasteful, they had received many others that were not so out of ” Fairness ” she was taken out of the Draw. What a load of Bull Shit!

I am a Breast-feeder myself, having 3 children and nursing them a full three years each so I have had my fair share of prejudice and that’s why I am sharing this story.

People need to educate theme selves about breastfeeding and stop being so uptight. There is nothing strange or taboo about nursing a child even into the toddler years. Only in America do we get such bizarre reactions to something so beautiful and natural.

She reached out to the Popular Face Book Page  Breastfeeding Mama Talk { Which I need To Join } To help spread the word of her unfair treatment.

Here’s What was said on FaceBook~

A breastfeeding mama tried to enter her beautiful breastfeeding photo taken by Iron Lace Photography in the Governor’s Square Mall’s Mother’s Day photo contest and her photo was denied due to the fact she is breastfeeding in it.

This is unacceptable. How can you run a Mother’s day contest and deny a photo of a mom doing one of the most motherly acts a mom could do? This is not acceptable and I really hope they do the right thing! The mom has reached out to me for help so let’s all ban together and let them know that breastfeeding mom’s are not gonna tolerate being shunned.

You can help by sharing this and leaving supportive comments. Let’s refrain from leaving any reviews at this time. I want to give them a chance to correct their wrong. I will be staying in touch with the mama and will update you all as needed. Thanks!

“I submitted this photo to my local malls annual Mother’s Day photo contest and this was the response I received. I feel so defeated. I have been fighting this fight for far too long. Encouragement is needed.”
