That’s wonderful. I hope people listen to him.

It’s absolutely ridiculous that so many people dislike public breast feeding so much. The logic behind it is so faulty and absurd.

I’ve heard public breastfeeding called tacky before, by a woman no less. Glad the Pope realizes that using your breasts for the purpose nature/God intended is normal and healthy.

This is great news. While I don’t think women should need his permission per se, lending his support can help change people’s perceptions about public breastfeeding.

I’m not a Catholic anymore but I can get behind this Pope. I don’t agree with everything he says or does, but he seems like he’s trying to make people do good for the sake of doing good. I can support that.

I’m not religious, but I think this is very cool. I wish I felt comfy just whipping out the boob. I try to use one of the covers, but it’s hard… I can’t see my kid to get the nipple in, and she gets too hot.

@mrsSonthebeach:  I really didn’t like the previous Pope, but I find Francis to be a very open-minded and loving man. I’m not going back to the Catholic Church, but I do appreciate the fact that he is so focused on helping others and not judging them – which, if you read the Bible, is really what Jesus was reported to have talked about personally.

i’m not Catholic, and even tend to have lots of issues with it as a whole including the pope figure, but i like this dude.  just don’t understand how his “blessing” makes things any different or why it was necessary.  but, that is just me.

This pope is seriously turning things around for the Vatican.  He’s VERY progressive.  I love it.

The Pope/Catholic Church has never been against public breast feeding. Where people get these ideas I don’t know! There is nothing for him to “OK” or “not OK.” There’s literally no change here.

In fact images of the Virgin Mary breastfeeding are traditional. If you go to Europe you will see them in churches and on altars…

@Magdalena: Thank you for correcting me.  That was a close one! 

EDIT: Actually – come to think – you didn’t really correct me.  I’m not sure what you were trying to do.

I love Pope Francis,  he is such a wonderful spirit.   He is what I would say a people’s pope,  trying to be among the people.   Remember when he touched and  blessed the man who was covered in tumors. 

His words and actions make me happy to see a man of God be there and listen to others.
