10 Celebrity Moms Who Breastfeed

Breastfeeding is a wonderful way for mothers to feed their children. But on the other hand, one must remember that it is not the only way for a mom to feed her kids, and some ladies are simply unable to feed them like that.

But as far as breastfeeding goes, there are lots of people who sing its praises. That is because moms and babies can both benefit from doing it. Some women do it because it helps their little ones stay healthy.

Lots of well-known celebrities have been very vocal about why they chose to nurse their babies. Here are just a few of them.

10 Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is no stranger to causing controversy when it comes to breastfeeding, and she does not care what anyone thinks about how she feeds her children. The famous mother of two doesn’t exactly keep her parenting methods private.

Chrissy once posted an image of herself nursing online, and she was met with some very negative comments. But since she does not let that phase her, she decided to post another photo of it, but she made that one a bit more interesting. She posed in the nude, proving that she really doesn’t care what anyone thinks about what she does.

9 Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was recently in some hot water, but it was not actually about her choosing to breastfeed her child. She recently found herself receiving lots of negative backlash when she posted a picture of herself on social media.

The problem with the image was that it showed her drinking wine, which is not something recommended for any mother who's nursing; that may not be healthy for the baby. The fact that she happened to be holding the baby in the image only made the reaction worse. As one would imagine, she didn’t receive much positive feedback from her followers after posting that image.

8 Alyssa Milano

There have been many times when Alyssa Milano has proved that she supports women who choose to breastfeed. The former Charmed star has even been known to post images of herself doing it, which is something many celebrity mothers have done. She posted a photo of herself nursing her daughter, Elizabella.

7 Tess Holliday

Tess Holliday breastfeeds, and it seems like she really wants everyone to know about it. The bold mother took part in a march for women a couple of years ago. While she was there, she decided that that was a great time to nurse her baby.

Like many other famous moms, the model took to Instagram to post the image of herself nursing her child at the march.

She responded rather quickly, and of course she defended herself and her decision to nurse her son at the event.

6 America Ferrera

America Ferrera is another celebrity mother who clearly does not have any issues when it comes to breastfeeding. The famous mom is yet another well-known person who has actually been in public while breastfeeding, and she believes that society shouldn’t be so hard on other women who do it.

They went to a famous museum because she wanted to get them both out of the house, and she thought there would be a space for moms to nurse their babies.
