BROOKLYN - Last week the world celebrated breastfeeding week and it stirred up some controversy. Jessica Anne Colletti posted a photograph of herself breastfeeding two children at once on Facebook. The photo sparked a social media debate because one of the children in the photograph belongs to her friend.
