Breastfeeding pictures posted online (also known as brelfies, if you take them yourself) are becoming a popular way for breastfeeding mums to capture those beautiful nursing moments. It goes beyond just sharing a breastfeeding photo, though.
The benefits of breastfeeding have been made very well known by health heavyweights such as the World Health Organization. However, breastfeeding is still stigmatised by many, especially when it involves a mum nursing in public.
Brelfies and other breastfeeding pictures, when posted on social media, can be seen as positive and proactive photographic retorts against this stigmatisation.
By posting these pictures, mums also jump onto the bandwagon of women, health activists, and researchers around the world who are attempting to #normalizebreastfeeding and make known just how beneficial breastfeeding is for both mum and baby.
We reached out to the wonderful mummies of the Breastfeeding Mums Support Group here in Singapore to ask them to share their brelfies and breastfeeding pictures with you.
We think these mums are superstars, so we placed their photos alongside famous celebrity breastfeeding pictures in this gallery.
Every single one of these images is so gorgeous and inspiring. Just click next to see each one of them!
