Celebrities breastfeeding help normalise nursing in public.

August 07, 2014

It’s always encouraging to see celebrities breastfeeding without a qualm despite being under the scrutiny of the public eye. The photos of public nursing provide mums with a positive role model for normalising breastfeeding. But moreover, they are just mums responding to their baby’s nursing needs wherever and whenever they need it and we applaud them!

This week there's excitement over the photos of Olivia Wilde breastfeeding in Glamour magazine. The images are notable for being beautiful high gloss, high fashion and slightly unrealistic which may evoke a level of criticism - baby Otis breastfeeding in the nude by a fully made up, dressed up mother - but that’s fashion for you!  Regardless of the slightly unattainable look, the more notable coverage is Olivia Wilde's candid and encouraging views of breastfeeding, family & being a working mum. This Time article gives a lovely recount of her views that we can all aspire to: http://time.com/3082981/olivia-wilde-breastfeeding-working-mom-glamour/

Celebrities also known for breastfeeding their children include Gisele Bündchen, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Isla Fisher, Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gwen Stefani, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Alanis Morrisette, Lucy Lawless, Beyonce, Miranda Kerr, Kate Beckinsale, Ashley Cole, Alicia Silverstone, Natalia Vodianova, Pink, Jaime King, Angelina Jolie, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Alyssa Milano, Christina Aguilera, Mary Louise Parker, Jennifer Garner, Julie Bowen, Tori Spelling, Jennifer Garner, Rebecca Romijn, Naomi Watts, Nicole Richie, Kourtney Kardashian, Jerry Hall and Keely Shaye Smith, Hilary Duff, Selma Blair to name a few.
