Don't know if this has been linked before but isn't the picture in this article lovely?

Ewe Mon 14-Jul-08 12:04:05

What a great picture - the Mum is gorgeous!

VictorianSqualor Mon 14-Jul-08 12:08:58

here is the translated article

cmotdibbler Mon 14-Jul-08 12:42:44

She just looks amazing, what a beautiful picture.

Snaf Mon 14-Jul-08 12:44:32

Gorgeous picture, hilarious translation.

maidamess Mon 14-Jul-08 12:45:42

I think she has posed in a deliberately provocative way.

fishie Mon 14-Jul-08 12:46:10

wow that is great. and she is pg too!

some that translation is really making me giggle, what is puddles?

fishie Mon 14-Jul-08 12:46:59

what is "deliberately provocative" about it maidamess?

harpsichordcarrier Mon 14-Jul-08 12:48:14

"deliberately provocative" hmm
how so?

hunkermunker Mon 14-Jul-08 12:49:57

Go on, VS, post the NM thread.

Hun wink

fishie Mon 14-Jul-08 12:50:10

actually that is exactly how i feed my 3yo in bed and i don't think 'provocative' is what i am either aiming for or achieving. it is simply how you feed older children when you are lying down and definitely the way to go with two of them.

maidamess Mon 14-Jul-08 12:50:32

Well I think her facial expression is provocative, I think the splayed legs are provocative.

I think the little boys are almost incidental, and if its supposed to be about feeeding kids for longer they seem secondary to her in this shot.

Just my opinion! feel free to have yours!

maidamess Mon 14-Jul-08 12:52:29

And at no point have I said feeding your children like that is provocative. Just this particular picture and posing.

VictorianSqualor Mon 14-Jul-08 12:52:32

the thread I knicked this off in the first place
(Thankfully MN don't censor NM like they do so I can link it)

Snaf Mon 14-Jul-08 12:53:15

What, 'provocative' because she isn't faffing about under layers of clothing or 'covering herself up' with muslins or those hideous feeding tent thingys? Because she's lying on a bed? Because you can actually see some <gasp> breast?

Or because she clearly doesn't give a fuck what anyone else's isshoos are?

PrettyCandles Mon 14-Jul-08 12:53:36

No it's not - it's awful!

She may be gorgeous, bnut she's also very 'come hither', and that's not what ebf is about. That, to my mind, just panders to the male attitude that breasts are sexual. It says, look I can bf sexily.

Sorry, she may be lovely, but she does not make me feel comfortable.

And BTW I ebf, in public too.

PrettyCandles Mon 14-Jul-08 12:54:59

Posted before reading the rest of the thread - I agree with Maidamess.

VictorianSqualor Mon 14-Jul-08 12:55:05

I didn't translate the article btw, that was google grin

I don't think she looks at all provocative myself, more determined and ready to tell you to get stuffed if you don't like it!

I think the pic shows that you don't have to be a frumpy lentil-weaver to feed your babies past a certain age.

noddyholder Mon 14-Jul-08 12:55:45

I think its awful too The overstyled hair and pose is ridiculous

maidamess Mon 14-Jul-08 12:55:49

snaf, I think she is trying to look sexy. And I think soo many people have 'ishoos' about boobs anyway, this doesn't help. But I think she is being deliberately provocative as I said before, hoping to stir debate which is always (as is shown on MN regularly) a good thing.

harpsichordcarrier Mon 14-Jul-08 12:56:34

"I think the little boys are almost incidental" - well she is cuddling them both in close, isn't she?
I see a woman feeding her children, looking fabulous
the epxression on her face is pretty "f off if you don't like it"
which I do like a great deal grin

harpsichordcarrier Mon 14-Jul-08 12:58:16

but she doesn't have to be a representative
this is her experience, her choices, her body.
it is up to her.
I don't think she is "trying to look sexy"
I just think she is sexy, very sexy.

Even tho the boys are attached, I think she looks detached.

lilymolly Mon 14-Jul-08 12:59:24

Awful far too provocative.
she is clearly gorgeous but totally inappropriate. its more of a sexy shot than a motherly love shot iyswim

Why anyone would want to have 2 toddlers off each tit for is behond me
