Pope Francis Supports Breastfeeding in Public

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Pope Francis proves he deserves Time's Person of the Year title once again. In a recent interview with La Stompa magazine, Pope Francis publicly supported moms nursing in public, joining the ranks of people ranging from poet Hollie McNish to supermodel Gisele Bundchen who champion breastfeeding in public.

Hey, baby's gotta eat, right? That's what the Pope thinks.

When asked about the state of the world's hungry and what could be done, Pope Francis replied that "people should recycle food and be less wasteful." 

He also said that mothers should not be ashamed to feed their babies when they're hungry and told a story about a time when he encouraged a mother to feed her baby.

"The other day there was a young mother behind one of the barriers with a baby that was just a few month s old. The child was crying its eyes out as I came past. The mother was caressing it. I said to her: madam, I think the child’s hungry. “Yes, it’s probably time…” she replied. “Please give it something to eat!” I said. She was shy and didn’t want to breastfeed in public, while the Pope was passing. I wish to say the same to humanity: give people something to eat!"

While many openly disparage mothers who choose to breastfeed their children in public, the Pope's open acceptance and acknowledgement of the practice as healthy and normal is a breath of fresh air to many.

This is clearly not a man for whom breastfeeding infants is an issue. Can we high-five His Holiness?
