The Glamorous World of Celebrity Breastfeeding
I have breastfed my babies many places: Disney World, the splash park, Chili's, and the beach, to name a few, but one thing is certain about all of them–I never looked nearly as glamorous as some of the celebrities who breastfeed their kiddos. The latest trend is for celebrities to share their most glammed-up breastfeeding photos, to show the world that breastfeeding isn't just normal– it can be downright fabulous.
Check out some of these adorable pictures of some of Hollywood's most glamorous moms breastfeeding their precious babies.
New mom Olivia Wilde showed off the best accessory ever–her 3-month-old son, Oits–in the September issue of Glamour magazine. While rocking a designer Roberto Cavalli dress, Prada heels, and a Prada scarf, Olivia nurses her young son. She told the magazine breastfeeding was “the most natural thing” and that her son “should always be on my breast. … It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing–that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed.”
When you are Gwen Stefani, your glamorous breastfeeding photos don't take place in, for instance, a Cracker Barrel (ahem…) Gwen Stefani doesn't let her rock-star life get in the way of giving her newest addition, 5-month-old Apollo, the best start to life. Gwen shared a heart-warming photo of her nursing her baby in front of the gorgeous Swiss Alps during a recent trip.
Looking this glamorous take a team of experts, even when you're a supermodel! Gisele Bundchen showed that you can have it all in what is perhaps the most glam breastfeeding picture in the history of ever. Gisele shared this intimate look into her life late last year, and captioned it, “What would I do without this beauty squad after 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep.” In the photo, Gisele is nursing her 1-year-old daughter, Vivian, while getting primped for a photo shoot. The Victoria's Secret model is an outspoken proponent of breastfeeding, and ruffled feathers in 2010 when she told Harper's Bazaar that there “should be a worldwide law … that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.” Thanks, Gisele, for letting us know how mere mortals should feed our babies.
Miranda Kerr may be a busy supermodel, but that doesn't mean she didn't enjoy slowing down to nurse her son, Flynn, now 3 years old (although, being a supermodel does mean that you look gorgeous in your breastfeeding selfies.) Miranda recently told Lucky magazine that she loved breast feeding, which she found came naturally to her. “I nursed for a year and a half, and I pumped when I was at work …[breastfeeding] helped speed up my metabolism,” said the Victoria's Secret model.
