When you are at a wedding, wear fancy dresses and high heels.🙆🏽💃🏽 and your baby gets hungry, well… You give no shits and feed the kid 😁💁🏽 *EDIT: whoever gets mad about this😂 I also fed my son at the church ceremonie IN the church. Here in Germany people don’t get mad about it. It is NORMAL . Nothing rude or bad about it. This is why I have breasts! Cause God gave me boobs for feeding my babies. #breastfeeding #fitmom #girlswithmuscle #breastmilk #nursing #prego #momlife #fitmom #mamaleben #instamamagang #instamamagang_original #lebenmitkind #stillen #bbg #bbgmom #bbgmums #pregnant #moms #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeedwithoutfear
Commenters celebrated the mama for her awesome attitude and for sharing imagery that normalizes breastfeeding in public.
“I wanted to show that it’s literally no big deal to breastfeed, no matter the circumstances,” she told BuzzFeed. “I made the silly face because it’s literally not a big deal to feed your baby. It’s just a breast; that’s what God gave me to use when baby is hungry.”
