Instagram Breastfeeding and Nude Photos: Policy Change

With parents and celebrity mums and dads often complaining that their social media photos featuring breastfeeding and ample skin and nudity are taken down by the social media platform Instagram, Instagram themselves have just released new guidelines pertaining to these very photos.

The NEW guidelines below, but first, some celebs who have been breastfeeding and posting  on social media for eons:

Miranda Kerr

Natalia Vodianova

Olivia Wilde


Community Guidelines

The Short

We want Instagram to continue to be an authentic and safe place for inspiration and expression. Help us foster this community. Post only your own photos and videos and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Instagram, don’t spam people or post nudity.
The Long
Instagram is a reflection of our diverse community of cultures, ages, and beliefs. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the different points of view that create a safe and open environment for everyone.
We created the Community Guidelines so you can help us foster and protect this amazing community. By using Instagram, you agree to these guidelines and our Terms of Use. We’re committed to these guidelines and we hope you are too. Overstepping these boundaries may result in a disabled account.

  • Post photos and videos that are appropriate for a diverse audience.

    We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.
    People like to share photos or videos of their children. For safety reasons, there are times when we may remove images that show nude or partially-nude children. Even when this content is shared with good intentions, it could be used by others in unanticipated ways. You can learn more on our Tips for Parents page.

    Before the update, Instagram's community guidelines were a little vague and only used language like "keep your clothes on" and be "respectful."

    The old guidelines are still viewable through an archive page - they didn't mention breastfeeding. These new rules are more precise. While Instagram did not mention why it changed its guidelines, the social network has recently gone under fire for banning accounts of mothers who post stretch marks (yes!) or somewhat expose their breasts in a breastfeeding photo.
