As modern moms, the message that breast is best has been made loud and clear to us, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Many women experience a steep learning curve, not to mention discomfort and even pain. It's is hard enough as it is, but nursing mothers also have to face the stigma around breastfeeding. Between belittling, bullying, and being told to cover up, it's enough to make anyone consider quitting.

Say what you will about celebrities, but one thing famous moms have done is some serious work toward normalizing breastfeeding. Their status hasn't protected them from being shamed or sexualized; in fact, their visibility makes them easy targets. Sharing personal photos nursing their own sweet babes is an act of bravery, and one that helps society become more accepting at the same time it inspires nursing mamas to keep on keeping on.
