A lot has been discussed about the importance of breastfeeding to nurture a newborn, yet there is widespread ignorance about this topic. However, what really helps the cause is when we see our much-loved, much-followed celebrities support the cause by talking about it openly. When celeb moms post photos of nursing their babies, it makes us feel that they are just like us, real. This International Breastfeeding Day, let’s take inspiration from these 5 celeb moms who celebrate breastfeeding by talking about it and showing us that it is very normal.
Padma Lakshmi: Model and host Padma Lakshmi has been consistently supporting the cause of normalising breastfeeding in public. Last year, she shared a photo of herself while getting ready and feeding her baby as a shout out to working moms everywhere.
Lisa Haydon: Model and actor Lisa Haydon gave birth to her son last year and since then has been very real about being a parent. Last year, she shared a photo of nursing her baby to celebrate International Breastfeeding Week.
Chrissy Teigen: Chrissy has always been very vocal about her parenting style through funny posts on social media. She’s also the most relatable celeb parent out there and is followed by many for humorous take on various aspects of parenting. Though she’s regularly trolled by people on the Internet, nothing stops this woman from making the right choice for her babies.
These two pictures might be my favorite ones of last weekend! There is more than one message that we all can take from these. One being, I hope to normalize breastfeeding because it’s a natural thing women can do for their babies. I think women should be able to feed their babies how they want, when they want and where they want. End of discussion! Another message I hope comes out of this is that women need to be confident in themselves no matter what. There is no one shape, size, age, or ethnicity that defines beauty. We are all beautiful! Look at the final 16 girls that were chosen. All different. All beautiful. Thank you @si_swimsuit and @mj_day for celebrating that year after year. Lastly, never give up on your dreams and goals, even when it may seem like there are many barriers in front of you at times. You are stronger than you think! We can do it all! So my #wcw today is every woman out there!!!! WOMEN CRUSH WEDNESDAY! 1st: @quinn_willoughby 2nd: @theimagesniper #girlpower #siswimsearch #normalizebreastfeeding #bodypositivity
Mara Martin: Recently, the model made headlines for walking the ramp while breastfeeding her daughter. “I think women should be able to feed their babies how they want, when they want and where they want. End of discussion!” she wrote on Instagram.
Alyssa Milano: The actor has always been vocal about normalising breastfeeding in public. She’s always supported other mothers in their fight to breastfeed their babies without judgement.
