Nursing Celebs

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.

Miranda Kerr

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.



Pink breastfeeding

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!"

I think it is lovely to have included a photo of Snooki, Plenty of Mothers have had to pump and bottle their breast milk due to lots of factors from working to an inability to latch on. It is relentless to hall around a a pump bottles and coolers, most women break down and switch to formula when having to use bottles for whatever reason so to remind people that THESE WOMEN WHO HAVE TO PUMP also are Breastfeeding their babies is very very beautiful!

I didn't realize posting pictures of your breast pump were pictures of you nursing in public... Snookie is the last person who should be nursing, what with drinking like a moron every night.
