Dozens of celebrities have been flaunting their breastfeeding and breast pumping selfies on social media, with Kourtney Kardashian being one of them.
Kourtney celebrated her 36th birthday over the weekend in Vegas with her partner Scott Disick. The bash was thrown at 1OAK hotel with a big crowd, but no siblings in sight.
Before heading out, Kourtney posted this photo on Instagram of her breast pumping.
People are praising Kourtney for doing so, commenting:
“That’s right. Embrace it”
“This is my life!”
“Officially my favourite Kardashian! Such a good mum.”
These types of images are powerful, because they help make breastfeeding normalized.
In fact, just over the weekend Instagram announced that they are no longer censoring breastfeeding photos. They changed their guidelines after receiving heaps of flak from users and celebrities around the world
The new rule states that “women actively breastfeeding are allowed,” as well as ladies who are showing “photos of post-mastectomy scarring.”
Victoria’s Secret Model, Doutzen Kroes posted a black and white pic of her pumping breast milk and wrote “Daily routine! I’m promoting breastfeeding, it’s the best for your baby when possible! #breastfeeding #breastpump #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingawareness.”
