Breastfeeding while the bullets are flying could have some interesting results on friend and foe alike. Not sure why the baby would be there however.

Re: Now that women are on the front lines...

Are we implementing "bring your child to work" day on the frontlines?

Seriously though, what's the maternity leave like in the military?

How would you have a baby on the battlefield? I don't get this question.

Yeah, I'm tired of only men being forced to breastfeed on the battlefield.

A very, very poor parenting plan? Grandma called in sick? I don't know, but I'm against babies on the battlefield!

Nobody suspected a baby could kill ...

They’re the perfect stealth warriors! (Although steroid-enhanced formula is probably a better meal.)

They can come in handy as extra body armor.

Re: Now that women are on the front lines...

If you weaponize babies like in the Boys I see this as inevitable.... babies and breast feeding on the battlefield....

This feels like a Grundle thread, and that makes me very very sad.

Why would you bring your baby into a military battle? It's not the Enterprise D.

For what it's worth, I voted yes.

Thinking about the question does kind of make your head hurt though. Maybe Mrs. Danger could add a little context here?

They would make terrible body armor per weight, I would think.

Yes. And we can bombard the enemy with dirty diapers till they give up. A new kind of "dirty bomb".

Not if you starve them. That takes care of the whole breastfeeding issue too, win-win!
