Breastfeeding isn’t just about a bond of a woman and a child but its a celebration of motherhood; the bliss only a woman can cherish. Gone are the days when women used to feel shy about feeding their babies as a lot of celebrity moms are supporting breastfeeding in public. Although it’s still considered taboo in some circles, there’s no shame in nursing your baby in public — or on the cover of a magazine for that matter! And we’re so glad that celebrity moms are coming up for this cause, after all you can’t keep your baby hungry. Alicia Silverstone has all the words that can explain the feeling of breastfeeding for a mother.
It can be [painful], but just at first. “What I’ve been told is it’s important to have the bonding latch right away. Everyone I know who had pain in the beginning says how amazing it was after the first two weeks – that the insane feelings of ecstasy while baby nurses are the best ever, and that it’s so worth the baracuda jaws for two weeks. Also, I have seen and heard so much about how the baby, when first put on the chest immediately after birth, will crawl up to your nipple after a while and open its mouth like a little bird looking for the nipple. How cute and precious is that?” –Alicia Silverstone
