Breastfeeding: Women Share Pictures Of What It Means To Nurse A Baby
Mothers are the real heroines! Since there are few representations of breastfeeding, some women share honest pictures of their experiences
One Mother's Day a year is definitely not enough to show the moms of the world how much we appreciate them. They're the true heroines making the world go round, and they get way too little recognition for it. It's time to show some realistic representations of what it means to be a mom - and especially one aspect of motherhood: breastfeeding. These moms share honest, funny, and beautiful pictures about their experiences on social media.
@camwimberly1 shares a picture of what she looks like after breastfeeding in the morning.
#2: Human or Playground?
Getting kicked in the chest? This won't stop us from nursing our kid, we aren't fussy when it comes to that!

Adults are not the only ones who get peckish during the night!

#4: Breastfeeding in Public Places
We'd love for breastfeeding to finally be more accepted in public places ... if you're simply uncomfortable with sharing this intimate experiences with rude onlookers, go for a cloak of invisibility - Harry Potter style. @scarlett_evelyn_1317 shows how it's done.
#5: This Mom Shows us That Breastfeeding and Symmetry Don't Always go Hand in Hand
Thank heavens we're always fabulous, no matter the asymmetry! @lemansoutloud takes it with plenty of humor.
#6: "Old Habits Die Hard"
This is how easily you can get replaced!

#7: A Milky Tragedy
Why I'm crying, you ask? Well, because I spilled my very own milk! Sometimes, it takes quite some time for women to make even a seemingly small amount of milk - that's why it's especially vexing. Brb, need to produce some more. We feel you, @un_keish_the_beast.
#8: This Mom Shows us What it's Like to be Exposed in Public - Only Because Your Baby Turns Her Head
Sure, turn around and show the whole world where you get your milk from! Also, it's only slightly painful if the baby continues to suck on said milk supplier.
@saraaemiliee seems to know this "wonderful" experience all too well!
#9: Don't Move too Much...
@saraaemiliee has another one for us: Being unable to move while you're nursing your baby. We only want to skip the TV channel, for heaven's sake!
#10: Before and After Photos of a Different Kind
We prefer this kind of "after" pic! Thanks for sharing, @ifnormaldidthis.
#11: Last but not Least: An Example of How Practical Breastfeeding Can be!
Baby and cookie tray in one? @lifewlola knows how to take care of herself while taking care of her kid.
