"Breastfeeding" is one of four "First Kid/Second Kid" online videos, produced by Luvs diapers brand, that compares the way many parents were with their first kid and how things changed with their second child. The entire video series can be found on Luvs YouTube channel ( The newest and already most popular video in the lineup, Breastfeeding, takes a light-hearted, humorous look at how a mom handles the tricky task of breastfeeding in public - two completely different ways - once as a first-time mother, and once as a second-time, seasoned pro. With already one million views to date, the Breastfeeding video has sparked a lot of online chatter among moms and marketers alike.

Through the end of January 2013, each program participant will also take their turn at guest-tweeting on the @Luvs Twitter handle, sharing their own humorous parenting anecdotes with the brand's Twitter community.
