Karolina Kurkova encourages breastfeeding selfies
Has breastfeeding gone from granola to glamour? Actress Olivia Wilde is featured in the September issue of Glamour nursing her newborn, wearing a sparkling designer gown and high-heeled shoes. Supermodel Gisele also took to Instagram to show us all how she gets dolled up, with her newborn at her bosom. Countless other celebrities have made it in style to breastfeed AND show it off. Here are some celebs who haven’t shied away from baring their breasts when it comes to feeding their baby.
Supermodel Karolina Kurkova is encouraging fellow new mums to follow her lead and post photos of themselves nursing their baby in an effort to change the stigma surrounding breastfeeding.
The Victoria's Secret angel and her husband Archie Drury welcomed their second son, Noah, in November, and on Friday, she took to Instagram.com to give her fans an update on her little one, as she shared a picture of herself breastfeeding the tiny tot in her arms.
Kurkova wrote the caption, "Taking a moment today to give thanks for the gift of breastfeeding. Nature had things figured out long before we did and I believe there is no better source of nutrition for our babies than a mother's milk, when we are able to breastfeed. It's not an easy process, but I encourage you to not give up! It was challenging for me at the start, but I am loving every step of this journey."
She added, "I celebrate the women who have made this beautiful commitment!! I would love to see your #breastfeedingselfie, post or tag a friend who is #breastfeeding".
Kurkova and Drury are also parents to six-year-old son, Tobin.
