There’s nothing more natural than breastfeeding, but our society constantly tells us it’s something to be done behind closed doors. Luckily, mothers are standing up for public breastfeeding, most notably Olivia Wilde in her recent Glamour photo shoot. Olivia is making this issue more visible, and the fact is, it’s not just celebrities we need to be celebrating and encouraging to breastfeed in public, but all conventionally attractive women who wish to do so.
Breastfeeding is a normal part of raising a child, and women with great bone structures and perky, well-shaped breasts should never feel vilified for breastfeeding their children in public. People who are offended by this can just look away, because breastfeeding is beautiful, as long as the woman is beautiful.
Older mothers should feel equally comfortable to breastfeed wherever they need to, provided they’ve taken care of themselves over the years and can still be generally thought of as attractive. In fact, women of all ages should be able to do whatever they want with their bodies, specifically if it’s a curvy body with large but taut breasts.

Olivia’s photoshoot shows that breastfeeding is a cause to be celebrated for the types of people who have facial symmetry and slim waistlines. This should inspire all women, whether they’re a glamorous Hollywood actress or a gorgeous suburban mom, to shirk society’s “rules” and do what’s necessary to care for their children.
Women are already under societal pressure to look good when they go out in public, and breastfeeding in public should be no different. It’s important that all new mothers feel safe to breastfeed wherever they need to, even if they’re average-looking and can be dolled up with some makeup.
Let’s all take the next steps to empower beautiful women to nurture their babies, and not shame them.
