January 10, 2017 – Pope Francis Encourages Nursing Mothers To Breastfeed Babies In Public Just As Mary Nursed Jesus

Roman Catholic Pope Francis encouraged women attending Mass at the Sistine Chapel on Sunday to breastfeed in public, telling them they could calm their crying babies by nursing them just as the Virgin Mary nursed the baby Jesus.

The comments, which were reported by Vatican Radio, came as the pontiff baptized 28 babies at the Vatican. When the infants began, one after the other, to cry the pope joked to their parents that Jesus’ first sermon was the sound of him wailing in the manger at Bethlehem.

According to a Vatican Radio correspondent, Philippa Hitchen:

As the sounds of crying grew louder, the pope joked that the concert had begun. The babies are crying, he said, because they are in an unfamiliar place, or because they had to get up early, or sometimes simply because they hear another child crying.

Jesus did just the same, Pope Francis said, adding that he liked to think of Our Lord’s first sermon as his crying in the stable.

And if your children are crying because they are hungry, the pope told the mothers present, then go ahead and feed them, just as Mary breast-fed Jesus.

  1. The Pontiff is stating the truth that is why that innocent baby he carries in his arms is concurring with that beatific smile!
    It is the warped thinking of lechers who pretend that the natural sight of a mother feeding her baby in public is offensive.

  2. AH AH AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, OH , OH ,LOOK AT MY BREAST CAN YOU COME AND USE IT AS PILLOW. IS MY BREAST NOT BIG ENOUGH
    AM I FLAT CHEST OR TOO BIG? EH AH AH

    THERE WOULD BE A TIME WHEN THEY WOULD SAY IT WAS NOT WRONG TO **** IN THE PUBLIC, MY DEAR POPO, CAN I SHOW MY ***** IN THE PUBLIC?

    THERE ARE SO MANY REASONS WHY I DO NOT THINK IT IS RIGHT TO FEED BABY IN THE PUBLIC BECAUSE OF AIR POLLUTION AND OTHER GERMS FLYING ABOUT THAT YOU CAN NOT SEE.

    THE BABY SHOULD BE TAKING TO A PRIVATE PLACE TO FEED BECAUSE OF THE WAY THE MOTHER WOULD BRING OUT THE BREAST OPENLY, WILL LOOK AS IF YOU ARE NAKED IN THE PUBLIC

    FEEDING YOUR BABY IN PUBLIC IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUR BABIES. PLEASE STOP NOW
    NOW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW NOW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

    USE FEEDING BOTTLE WHEN YOU ARE OUTSIDE, THEN YOU SHOULD BREASTFEED WHEN YOU ARE INSIDE

    YOU NEED TO EDUCATE YOUR BABY FROM DAY ONE THAT THEY ARE OUT OF YOUR WOMB,

    IT MEAN BY FOUR TO SIX MONTHS YOUR CHILD SHOULD BE ABLE TO HOLD THE FEEDING BOTTLE AND BY THE TIME YOUR CHILD IS A YEAR HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE SPOON TO EAT ON HIS OWN PEACEFULLY WITHOUT CRYING FOR YOU TO FEED HIM.

    TRAIN YOUR CHILD NOT TO EAT JUNK FOOD.

    YOUR CHILD SHOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY WITH THEIR TOYS PEACEFULLY WHEN YOU ARE BUSY, COOKING OR DOING SOMETHING.

    YOU JUST HAVE TO TRAIN YOUR CHILD TO DO LITTLE THINGS BEFORE THEY ARE TWO YEARS.
    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A SLAVE TO ALL THOSE BELIEVES

    YOU SHOULD CREATE TIME WHEN TO GO TO BED AND WHEN TO WAKE UP. SO YOUR CHILD WOULD GROW UP TO WAKE UP IN TIME AND GO TO WORK IN FUTURE

    HE WOULD NOT BE PART OF LAZY HUSBAND OR WIVES, WHO WILL JUST SLEEP OFF LIKE DEADWOOD.

    FEEDING IN THE PUBLIC IS NOT GOOD FOR BABIES AND IT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE MOTHERS

  3. THERE OUGHT to be no big deal about brest-feeding your baby in the public. But where the mother has in mind that the general perception about it is yet “frozen”(like MMM money. Lol), I suggest she may have to use the feeding bottle until she could afford some degree of privacy before shoving her breast into her baby’s mouth. In a world where many minds are crooked and perverse, it is for a woman unsafe to show strangers her fully milk-blown breast in the name of feeding her baby. Otherwise, there is nothing really bad about it.
