Celebrities, they’re just like us, and even the brightest and the most beautiful stars have to deal with the stresses of being a new mother in public — including figuring out how and where to feed a hungry baby. If you’ve ever dealt with shame in your breastfeeding game, like a raised eyebrow or an unsolicited comment, you’re going to appreciate these celeb breastfeeding selfies that much more.

As we learned from new celebrity moms like Alyssa Milano and Chrissy Teigen, the show must go on. Both women have been photographed with a baby on the boob while the glam squad makes them up for another day at work. Whether a stay-at-home mama or a model-turned-mother, it’s these realities of new motherhood that bring us together. We can thank the celebrities who speak out about everyday mom stuff for fighting the good fight — and helping to normalize breastfeeding for the rest of us.

A mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do! For The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, this meant a little multitasking — juggling breast-feeding newborn son Ace and having her hair washed at the same time.

Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds are notoriously protective of their daughter James' privacy. We love how Lively honored their decision to keep James' childhood private while still documenting a special breast-feeding moment with her first daughter.

This shot of Bündchen breast-feeding daughter Vivian may be a few years old, but it will forever go down as the most envy-inducing breast-feeding selfie. Thanks to Bündchen, moms everywhere now know exactly what their breast-feeding experience has been missing all this time — a little pampering!

When Jaime King and husband, Kevin Newman, welcomed their son, Leo Thames, into the world, they were quick to share with their online fans. We love this sweet shot of the whole family, including big brother James, spending time together in the hospital while King feeds her newborn.

Charmed star Alyssa Milano is the queen of breast-feeding selfies and an accidental breast-feeding advocate. With all of her adorable breast-feeding shots, it was hard to choose just one, but this one shines above the rest. Don’t all breast-feeding moms feel like Wonder Woman from time to time?

Even celebrities have to make big sacrifices for their children. During the 73rd annual Golden Globes, model and first-time mom Brooklyn Decker shared this honest shot of her "glamorous" night in. The best part about this selfie? Her sense of humor. Decker captioned her shot with two hashtags — "#notgoldenglobes" and "#mykidsuckinonagoldenglobetho."

All moms need a night out from time to time, and breast-feeding can make that really hard. Kourtney Kardashian, mom of three, shared this funny photo from a night out in Vegas. We love this because let's face it — the breast pump is every breast-feeding mom's saving grace.

It has been a few years since musician Alanis Morissette has breast-fed a child, but that didn't keep her from showing her support to breast-feeding moms during World Breastfeeding Week in 2014. She shared this photo of herself and her son, Ever, from a family tour of Europe in 2012.

British model and socialite Tamara Ecclestone has shared photos of her breast-feeding her daughter, Sophia, on multiple occasions. This "brelfie" is not only super sweet, but it is smart too! Nothing soothes a tiny, tired traveler quite as well as a little bonding time with Mom.

The hilarious and hardworking Chrissy Teigen remains a working mom after welcoming her first child with husband John Legend. In a recent video posted to Snapchat, the supermodel showed us what it really looks like to have it all: balancing a baby's feeding schedule with a day on the set.

As always, English model and TV personality Sam Faiers keeps it real with a breast-feeding selfie by the pool. Though the haters came out in full force, plenty of fellow mothers supported Sam for more accurately representing a mom's life.

Tess Holliday's shot of breast-feeding 3-week-old Bowie is a celebration within a celebration. Not only did she get one gorgeous photo, it was also apparently her first time successfully breast-feeding lying down. It's the little things in mommyhood.

Alanis Morissette is another celeb mom to show her support of World Breasfteeding Week. Morissette posted this photo of her new baby Onyx and hashtagged #worldbreastfeedingweek and #illbeyourkeeperforlifeasyourguardian. If that doesn't make you melt into goop out of adorableness, we don't know what will.

24/26 :Audrina Patridge

A busy mom's got to do what a busy mom's got to do, and Audrina Patridge didn't let being a nursing mom keep her from wedding dress shopping. She just plopped down mid-shop and let baby Kirra eat.

Singer Pink shared a throwback photo of daughter Willow in honor of World Breastfeeding Week in early Aug. 2016, noting she was proud to share a photo of a "healthy natural act between mother and child." The snap was technically taken by husband Carey Hart, so it's not a true selfie, but it's truly adorable.

It looks like Olivia Wilde found a new kind of "drinking buddy." The actress and daughter Daisy Josephine, who was born on International Day of the Girl, share a special breastfeeding moment catpured in an adorable selfie. We are also loving her shirt, "Never underestimate the power of a woman." PREACH.
