Does Instagram allow photos of mothers breastfeeding?
Yes. We agree that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful and we're glad to know that it's important for mothers to share their experiences with others on Instagram. The vast majority of these photos are compliant with our policies.
Photos that show a fully exposed breast where the child is not actively engaged in nursing do violate our Community Guidelines. These policies are based on the same standards which apply to television and print media.
It's important to note that the photos we review are almost exclusively brought to our attention by other Instagram members who complain about them being shared on Instagram.
