World Breastfeeding Week 2018: Lisa Haydon, Padma Lakshmi And 5 Other Celeb Mums Who Proudly Posted Pics

Lisa Haydon and Padma Lakshmi shared pics which show them nursing their babies.

In a bid to promote breastfeeding, explain its importance and support nursing mothers all over the world, the first week of August is celebrated as World Breastfeeding week. This year’s theme is “Breastfeeding: Foundation for Life”. The World Health Organization says “breastfeeding is one of the most effective ways to provide children everywhere with the best start to life.” Breastfeeding a baby for the first six months not only helps the child but is also beneficial for the mother. And thanks to the power of Internet, more new mothers are talking about breastfeeding and encouraging others to take up and support the practice. Celebrity moms are among those mothers leading the charge to normalise breastfeeding and promote it by sharing their pictures which show them nursing their newborn babies.

So, to celebrate and honour World Breastfeeding week, here are seven celeb mamas who have encouraged breastfeeding by sharing their pictures.Lisa Haydon: During the World Breastfeeding Week in 2017, the actor posted a picture of herself feeding her two-month-old son, Zack. “Breastfeeding has played such a big part in getting back into shape after giving birth to my baby,” she wrote on Instagram. Her post won major love online for highlighting the importance of breastfeeding and inspiring other new mothers.

Padma Lakshmi: The television host celebrated Mother’s Day this year by posting a throwback picture of herself nursing her daughter Krishna Thea Lakshmi-Dell. “Multi-tasking: level 100,” she captioned the photo and gave a big shout out to all those people who make the life of a working mother – especially one who’s nursing – a little simpler.

Mara Martin: The model made quite a splash on the Internet recently for breastfeeding her baby daughter while walking the ramp. “I think women should be able to feed their babies how they want, when they want and where they want. End of discussion!” she wrote on Instagram.
