Model Carol Trentini is making news this week for gracing the cover the September issue of Vogue Brazil while breastfeeding her baby.
In the gorgeous images, shot by photographer Zee Nunes, Trenton was captured at seven months pregnant and two months postpartum for the photo series.
The model was extremely appreciative of the magazine’s willingness to put a breastfeeding mother on its cover.
When she shared the cover on her Instagram account, Trentini captioned with a heartfelt thank you to the Vogue Brazil:
“Breastfeeding my baby boy for @voguebrasil THANK YOU ??”
Now that breastfeeding images are making their way onto the covers of magazines more often, many people may be wondering why so many of us are *this* excited to see the positive trend gaining traction.
Well, I’ll try to answer this….
As someone who was on a magazine cover breastfeeding my toddler, I can tell you that it was definitely not as accepted as it is today just four years ago. However, in that short amount of time, we now we see toddlers newborns and every age in between in elaborate breastfeeding photoshoots. It is common now for newborn shoots to have a breastfeeding element to the photography package. And the very reason we are witnessing such normalization of breastfeeding in our culture is because of people like Carol Trentini, Nicole Trufino, Doutzen Kroes, and every “normal” mom who is brave enough to share her breastfeeding selfie on Facebook and Instagram.
