All people are aware of the fact that our lives depend on nutrients to survive. However, some people seem to consider breastfeeding to be a taboo even though humans need to be breastfed. Breastfeeding is important because it improves health, prevents health problems, and helps to create a bond between a mother and her child.
People are aware of the aforementioned benefits, but women’s bodies are usually sexualized in all aspects of life. Surprisingly, even people without breasts have something to say about this. I hope great changes will take place this year to eliminate the stigma around the natural act of breastfeeding. Invette Ivens’ spectacular photo gallery demonstrates the beauty of breastfeeding. This article presents 16 of the best photos of women breastfeeding their babies. What is your opinion on breastfeeding? Is it a natural act or a taboo? Should women breastfeed their children in public?
