Breastfeeding has been the subject of great controversy lately. I must say it came as a surprise to me. I mean, that’s what breasts are there for, right? I was so perplexed by this sneering and sometimes flat hate people have been directing at mothers who are feeding their babies as nature intended. Have we sexualized women’s breasts to such a degree that their original purpose is starting to look like a perversion? Thankfully, a group of moms have posed with their babies in full breastfeeding mode to show that just because breastfeeding has been a public taboo for so long doesn’t mean it should stay that way.

That window seat was once for solitary reading and dreaming of a family. Now it’s the perfect perch for two.
10. Sharing The Love
Many mothers will tell you that breastfeeding is one of the most relaxing things a woman could do. It brings out a gentleness in even the most stone-faced woman.
This little baby’s life is just budding while everything else is in full bloom. Mom can’t wait to watch her little flower grow and with all this wholesome eating, that’s going to happen sooner rather than later.
