Jessica Alba has recently shared a breastfeeding photo in a statement which fans have celebrated as a powerful message about women’s bodies.

In this day and age some people are somehow still not okay with the idea of people feeding their babies in public and celebrities, including Jessica Alba – who has decided to raise awareness of how totally normal it is

Afterall, if celebrities breastfeed their babies perhaps normal Moms should be allowed too as well?

That’s most likely the same people that would be equally unhappy if a baby was screaming the place down, because that is what they do if they don’t get fed!

The alternative is to probably lock newborns and mothers away from public view until the child is old enough to use a knife and fork, right?

The point is, most mothers don’t choose to breastfeed in public, they have to breastfeed in public because their child is hungry and unhappy.

Most people would probably avoid it if they could but the reality is, life doesn’t stop because you have a child, you have to leave the house to live and sometimes the child is going to get hungry

There are also lots of physical and psychological benefits to breastfeeding which have been widely documented and studied. Many people feel that breastfeeding is a great way to create a bond between a mother and child, as well as the fact breastmilk has many benefits for young babies.

Regardless of all of these points, not everyone can breastfeed for a variety of reasons and that’s okay too.
The moral of the story here is to let people raise their children and stop shaming them when they do it in public.

Well done to Jessica Alba for using her fame as a platform to raise issues all mothers have to deal with.
