Mom Starts “Breastfeeding Riot” in Sweden

Mom Starts “Breastfeeding Riot” in Sweden

Swedish mom Natashja Blomberg has shown her support for breastfeeding in a very public way — but it's not what you'd expect.

As the Huffington Post reports, last week Blomberg was given control of Sweden's official Twitter account. The account is run by a different citizen every week, with the goal of sharing diverse opinions and stirring dialogue. Blomberg chose to do this by posting a series of pro-public nursing tweets and photos to Sweden's 28,000 Twitter follows, starting what some are calling a "Breastfeeding Riot."

Most young Swedes don't share Blomberg's views. A 2011 study found that three out of four 18- to 22-year-olds in Sweden believe nursing moms should cover up in public while breastfeeding.
