It’s difficult to imagine that anyone would have a problem with a mother feeding their child, but the truth is stories of breastfeeding mothers suffering abuse because they dared to do it in public are still all too common.
Fortunately, more and more women in the spotlight are doing their part to empower women by using their platforms to share beautiful, intimate photographs of themselves nursing their children.
Celebrity mamas everywhere have embarked on a mission to normalise the beauty that is breastfeeding and we are here for it!
Check out some of our favourite boobin’ mammas keeping it real in the gallery below …

Helping normalise the fact that breastfeeding is not for everyone, Amy Schumer told Oprah.
“Breastfeeding wasn’t the right fit for our family—it was too much on me and I was starting to feel bad.
“And it occurred to me: I can stop breastfeeding. And he’s so healthy, and he’s so good. That pressure is real, but what I realised is that it was self-inflicted.
“So, I’m not trying to vilify the other women who said these things to me—it’s gonna happen, you’re going to feel all these pressures about a lot of different things about being a mum, or just being a woman.
‘But if you let it get to you, it’s on you. I had to stop and say, no, this is all self-inflicted. I’m going to get rid of this guilt and do what’s right for me and my family and what makes me feel healthy.”
