Photos Of Breastfeeding Fairchild AFB Personnel Stir Internet Controversy

From AirForceTimes.com - Mom2Mom, a breastfeeding support group at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, Wash., has created an Internet sensation with a recent photo shoot that included two moms breastfeeding while wearing their airman battle uniforms.

The photos, by 'Brynja Sigurdardottir Photography' in Washington, were featured on the website and blog breastfeedingincombatboots.com. The author of the blog, Robyn Roche-Paull, says on her website that the Air Force doesn't endorse the photos but permission was given to the breastfeeding moms to appear in them.

One features a mom breastfeeding twins; her ABU top is unbuttoned and her shirt is pushed up. A second mom sits next to her, breastfeeding a baby girl. She too has her ABU undone, although her shirt covers her skin. 

The woman pictured on the left, Terran Echegoyan-Mccabe, shown breastfeeding her 10-month old twin girls says: "I guess my thoughts are, if you don't want to breast-feed in your uniform, you don't have to, but you should have respect for those who do. If anything, it should make people look at you as someone who is able to multitask."

The photographer issued a written statement on Facebook saying no one expected the photo to be "shared around the world and back twice over."

Should military women be allowed to breastfeed in uniform in public? Sound off in the comments section below or on our KHQ Local News Facebook page.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
