Add a breastfeeding emoji to keyboards

This petition had 5,137 supporters


Take a second and look at your emoji keyboard. It provides you with an emoji for a baby and a bottle. This covers the idea of feeding a baby, but it also contributes to the denormalization of breastfeeding. I believe that it is time to start empowering and supporting women in the decisions they make as mothers instead of criticizing and shaming them. Part of that is normalizing breastfeeding and integrating it back into our everyday social lives. I know what your thinking, how can an emoji be an important step to breastfeeding becoming a cultural standard?! Well, it may seem insignificant but putting an image of breastfeeding in a place where most people will see it frequently will help make it a normal part of life. Having major companies recognize and support breastfeeding in this way is always great too! Let's allow our Mothers to feel good about the way they choose to nourish their children! The best news is, an Emoji for breastfeeding already exists!
