Most of the discussion I have seen about NIP (Nursing in Public) has been from a secular viewpoint. Finally, someone has taken the time to lay out a Scriptural view on NIP. Modesty? Being a stumbling block? She discusses both of these aspects in this post at The Common Room. She also shows us verses in the Bible that specifically reference nursing mothers. And you thought the Bible couldn’t be culturally relevant. 😉
Whether you’re a man or a woman, a parent or not, I heartily encourage you to head over there and take the time to read what she has to say.
What do you think? Does it challenge your own perceptions of NIP?
For those of you who have read Sheila Kippley’s Ecological Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing, does it help you to view EBF in a new light? To question, what does God say about this… and to revere just how amazing our Father is in the wisdom He displays throughout Creation (yes, even the human body)?
Feel free to share your thoughts. 🙂
