After a brief furore on the internet, Instagram has chosen to suspend the #Daughterof thesun account belonging to Amy Woodruff. According to her blog, her account had been flagged for inappropriate content by the photo-sharing social medium. Despite her back-to-nature themed account having many fans, apparently images such as the famous one of her dangling naked (and simultaneously breastfeeding) were just too risqué for Instagram to handle.
Just breastfeeding, naked and upside down, as one does...
Woodruff’s partner recently shared that the infamous 2011 photo wasn’t staged, and that Amy had simply been going about her regular business of doing yoga when her child had decided to feed.
Amy has since written an apology to Instagram and a defence of her natural lifestyle, speaking about the community in which she lived where nudity was accepted as part of a bigger effort to get in touch with one’s self, and that it had nothing to do with sexuality.
Instagram has become a popular place for moms to upload pictures of themselves breastfeeding, a welcome supportive environment for pro-breastfeeders, as opposed to other social media platforms such as Facebook, where an exposed breast could see you getting your account closed down.
Naked, inverted breastfeeding yoga mommy has had a huge outpouring of support for her account appeal following her suspension, particularly on the account #savedaughterofthesun.
