Happy Birthday to Alyssa Milano’s daughter, Elizabella. Alyssa celebrated by sharing a photo of the first day of their breastfeeding relationship.
Such a beautiful moment of bonding and nourishment. Alyssa picked the perfect words to celebrate, “Thank you for choosing me.”
This isn’t her first time sharing her “brelfies” either. She’s always shared nursing as a part of her life.
You’ve got to love a woman who can have a glam squad around her and still look like a … Keep Reading!!!
Whitney Walters wanted to put together a scrapbook of her 6-year-old daughter. She sent her pictures off to Walmart, but when she arrived to pick them up they told her multiple photos of hers were indecent and would not be printed. The indecent act? Breastfeeding her daughter. Aside from that vague comment they would not explain, specifically, why they could not print them. Public Relations for Walmart has not issued a statement.

Tamara Ecclestone, who is famous for something to do with cars, and not even the pretty ones, the Formula One cars. To me she’s famous for being a vocal supporter of public nursing, posting her own images to Instagram and stating that she will never be ashamed of nursing her 17-month-old.
This month she’s looking Fabulous, showing the normalcy of not just public breastfeeding but term nursing too!
She’s very down to earth about what she does as well, she … Keep Reading!!!
Mamma Mia!!! To do their part to normalize breastfeeding these two women re-wrote and re-recorded Abba’s Dancing Queen. As an Abba fan this has got to be one of my favourites.
Because nothing says breastfeeding like Disco! You’ve got to give them credit for hitting some of those high notes!… Keep Reading!!!
This website should rename itself from Bro Bible to “Sexist Pricks who Need a Hard Kick in the Balls Forum”.
To stalk and shame a young mother for doing something amazing for her child is beyond despicable. If the author is going to blast Chastity’s face alongside her diatribe then she could at least grow a pair and put her own images up so we all know who to never “swipe right” on again. Yes, It is a woman who … Keep Reading!!!
Instagram had to put its tail between its legs and issue yet another apology banning another account over posting breastfeeding images, against their own policies. According to their statement,
“We looked into what happened here, and this was a pure mistake that we’ve now rectified. For context, our teams review content when it’s reported to us for violating our Community Guidelines.

They review millions of pieces of content daily – and as much as we’d like to be free of
The Formula Fed Baby
When I was pregnant with my first breastfeeding was a given to me. It just seemed like the normal thing to do and I never considered anything else. I was under the impression that it’s simple – latch baby – end of story. I set up no support system, I didn’t do any research.
At the hospital I was made to feel like I couldn’t do it until the nurse was there to “help” latch baby, … Keep Reading!!!
My almost 4 yr old daughter still nurses for a few minutes before her nap and bedtime. Occasionally she wants to nurse when she wakes up also. We don’t nurse in public anymore now that she’s older but I do share that information with other moms of toddlers when the subject comes up in conversation. Moms need to know that it is healthy and within the range of normal.
Did you practice child led weaning with your child? … Keep Reading!!!
Gemma Colley learned the hard way that spray tans and breastfeeding don’t mix. She had a wedding to attend and decided to get a little spray on glow to feel her best.
I am not a bad mum who would ever intend on harming a child. Just a very forgetful one that happens to be going to a wedding at the weekend and doesn’t want to look like Casper the friendly ghost in a bright yellow dress.
After her tanning … Keep Reading!!!
Early in July, an Argentine news outlet tweeted a photo of Victoria Donda Perez breastfeeding her 8-month-old.

What makes it a spectacular photo is that Donda Perez was nursing her daughter, Trilce, at work – in regular session of the Argentine National Parliament. Donda Perez is a lawyer and a Member of Parliament, the youngest ever to hold office when she was … Keep Reading!!!

My research has looked at the various “life-history” variables (such as length of gestation, birth weight, growth rate, age at sexual maturity, age at eruption of teeth, life span, etc.) in non-human primates and then looked at how these variables correlate with age at weaning in these animals. These are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom, especially gorillas and chimpanzees, who … Keep Reading!!!
Earlier this month Target’s company breastfeeding policy was released. It outlines how employees should handle and interact with nursing mothers in their stores.
It contains a few key points
– That customers can breastfeeding openly in any area of their stores.
– That if a customer would like to nurse in a fitting room they are to be given priority over others who are waiting.
– If approached by a mother always offer the fitting room for private nursing, never … Keep Reading!!!
