When it comes to breastfeeding your baby when you’re out and about, there are countless debates. Which is why a bookshop in Coventry is winning over the Internet for its sign inviting women to breastfeed ‘ostentatiously’ in the store.
Earlier this week, plus size model, Tess Holliday took to Instagram to share an intimate snap capturing that exact scenario. In an image which echoes a similar iconic shot of supermodel Gisele Bundchen way back in 2013, the 31-year-old is seen breastfeeding her one-month old son, Bowie while a stylist and make-up artist get her photo-shoot ready. “[Nick] captured this photo of me getting ready yesterday to shoot the next installment of my #mblmxtess @penningtons collection, and it reminded me of @gisele’s iconic photo breastfeeding on set,” Tess captioned the image.
If, like me, you grew up in the 90s (Shhhh!), Saved By The Bell character Kelly Kapowski would likely have been one of your teenage icons. Not only did she have the undivided attention of dreamy school stud, Zack, she had a squad to rival Taylor Swift and rocked denim dungarees way before the Insta-set. Fast forward three decades (gulp) and Tiffani Thiessen is now a 42-year-old mother of two who also hosts her own cookery show Dinner at Tiffani’s.
When Chelsea Craig hired a photographer to capture some precious family moments, she had no idea that one of the pictures would end up going viral. During the shoot, Chelsea’s eldest daughter, Addy, 3 started getting hungry, so the mum-of-two decided to quickly feed her so they could continue. Photographer Mae Burke, who specialises in breastfeeding pictures, decided to capture the ‘tandem breastfeeding’ moment and the picture has since been shared online.
Meg Nagle, a lactation consultant and blogger, shared the selfie on her Facebook page The Milk Meg earlier this week. The mum-of-three boys, who is still breastfeeding her youngest son, 4, once a day, was expecting some reaction to the post, but within hours it had attracted over 300 largely supportive comments, with many mums sharing their own experiences of cross-feeding.
