The current international breastfeeding symbol only shows a child nursing at the breast.
The Universal Breastfeeding Symbol recognizes that there are more ways to chest- or breastfeed. For example, research* shows that the vast majority of breastfeeders express milk at some point, so why doesn’t the current symbol include this?
