Breastfeeding is the oldest, most basic way to feed babies, yet breastfeeding in public is still awkward for some, and even taboo for others. Some mothers prefer to breastfeed privately, while others have no problem at all breastfeeding in public. Let's take a look at some of the celebrity moms who have put their baby's needs first and left the critics behind.
Back in April 2011, Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr tweeted this pic of herself breastfeeding in a robe and red pumps with the message: "Another day in the office xxx." She had previously posted another picture of herself in bed breastfeeding Flynn on her KORA Organics website to introduce her baby son to the world. Her hubby Orlando Bloom took the beautiful photo.
In June 2012, shortly after her daughter Willow was born, Pink tweeted about this Instagram photo while on a break at a photoshoot for her album. The singer wrote alongside the picture: “Lunchtime at my album photoshoot. Deborah Anderson takes some purty pictures:)” More recently her husband, Carey Hart, posted another photo of Pink breastfeeding on his own Instagram account with the message "@pink Willz and i out to dinner in Paris. Looks like willow is having the best meal!"
Maggie Gyllenhaal isn't shy about her breastfeeding advocacy. In 2007, the paparazzi snapped this shot of Gyllenhaal nursing her daughter Ramona in a park in New York City.
