Nursing your little one does more than just provide breastmilk. It offers a time to bond, releases oxytocin which makes you feel relaxed, and gives optimum nutrition and immune boosting benefits to your child. In this day and age, some women are still hesitant to nurse in public.
Today many celebrity moms are proponents of breastfeeding and are comfortable nursing while out and about. We celebrate and salute these moms who set a wonderful example for nursing and breastfeeding in public.
"I lost most of my weight from breastfeeding and I encourage women to do it; It's just so good for the baby and good for yourself."
"I stay healthy by working out but not dieting, because I am a milk machine."
"I'm breastfeeding now so that's a really wonderful experience -- challenging but wonderful. My favorite thing is feeling that incredible amount of love when you meet your baby and you wake up the next morning and you think, 'Wow!'"
“It’s like two little liposuction machines on you,” she said. “They suck the fat out of you. They call it the ‘double football hold.’ You hold one here, and here [gesturing to her breasts], like two footballs… They’re doing God’s work right there, helping me return to my birth weight.”
"Jason observed that a breast pump looks like something Katy Perry would wear to perform at the VMAs. #accurate #milkyfashion" - Olivia's Twitter account
“I think breast-feeding is healthy and natural and it’s a comfort to my baby.”
“It’s essential for the newborn and creates a bond between mother and her child. It’s a unique moment when the body changes to nurture; it’s the Nature’s blessing! Breastfeeding, mainly the first days, poses some challenges, but the reward is sublime. In addition to having all the proteins, fats, and vitamins the baby needs, breastfeeding is an act of love and affection…. It would be great if all the mothers could experience the breastfeeding.”
"I love it! I can't stop! I think I'm going to breastfeed him until he goes to college!"
“I don’t know when I’m going to stop breastfeeding… I’ll just keep going while I can – like, he’s getting his teeth so it is a little bit scary. He’s bitten me a few times!”
