A Facebook post about breastfeeding has gotten people on social media talking about the subject.

Jessica Anne Colletti posted a photo of her breastfeeding her child and the friend’s son to the Facebook public group, Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene, which is a petition page. 

Her son is 16-months-old while his friend is 18-months-old. She said the feedings have been taking place for a year.

“So much love between these milk siblings, it's a special bond between us all,” Colletti posted.

The post has been more than 500 Likes and more than 100 comments. Some of the people showed support for Colletti while others criticized her decision.

Since the post, Colletti has talked to the Huffington Post, People and other national media outlets.

Colletti told People.com that “people are misinformed.”

"I think people have misinformation and fear. They think it's gross bodily fluid that shouldn't be shared or transferred in any way. And I can understand, if people are receiving donated breast milk, they want to have it tested, but if you know the mother directly and she's healthy, and you know everything about her, it's a perfectly healthy relationship to have," Colletti told people.com.
