10 Celeb Moms Who've Shared Their Breastfeeding Selfies

Jul 25 2014 - 12:38pm

Think the breastfeeding selfie trend [1] is just a thing for your Instagram friends to share with each other? Not quite! While the women in your new-moms class are sharing pics of themselves and their nursing tots with family and friends, celebrity moms are sharing theirs with millions of fans around the world. While some say they are sharing the images to show something "natural and beautiful," others are doing it to show their political views (and protest against Facebook's anti-breastfeeding policy [2]).

Gwen Stefani [3] is the latest nursing mom to show off her hungry tot. This morning, she shared this adorable photo of baby Apollo [4] breastfeeding in Switzerland (check out those mountains in the background!). Read on to see which other moms have been forthcoming with their photos (hint: there's a bit of a Victoria's Secret Angel trend here).

Julie Bowen

Breastfeeding twins is no easy feat, but Julie Bowen showed how it's done during an appearance on Lopez Tonight back in 2010. She shared a picture of herself nursing twins Jon and Gus and said [6]:

"It's like two little liposuction machines on you. 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."

Angelina Jolie

Soon after giving birth to twins Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, Angelina Jolie [8] posed for a series of intimate portraits for her then-boyfriend, Brad Pitt [9]. W magazine featured several of them in the November 2008 issue, including one of actress nursing, on the cover.

Angelina spoke about her breastfeeding experience [10], saying:

"I had lost my mum, I'd had a baby, and I'd been breastfeeding, and I was in a very emotional place as a woman. I knew instinctually and talked to Brad about it, that if I could find something that would get me physical again, it would be like therapy, because everything was making me cry."

Mayim Bialik

Mayim Bialik has been an outspoken advocate for extended breastfeeding and attachment parenting, going so far as to share an image of herself nursing her 3-year-old son Fred on a New York City subway. She accompanied the photo with an essay about her decision [12], saying:

"I have written about my now-3-year-old son Fred and his nursing rhythms before. To recap: Fred nursed for a solid 12 months with no supplements, no solid foods, and not even a sip of water. He got the hang of eating solids around 18 months, but continued to nurse all day (with bottles of pumped breast milk when I was at work) and on demand all night. A typical night involved no less than four wake-ups and sometimes six (every two hours on the clock for 12 hours of bed time was not unusual). This went on for almost three years."

Gisele Bündchen

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen was the picture of a pampered, multitasking mom when she shared a picture of herself [14] getting her hair, makeup, and nails done, all while breastfeeding little Vivian. She wrote, "What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep"?
