Breastfeeding anytime and anywhere! The babies love it! [PHOTOS]

Breastfeeding is the most intimate way via which mother and child bond. Not only is the act of breastfeeding beautiful, it should be celebrated not because in our western society it's an act of activism or defiance but because it's the best thing mothers (should they choose to) can do for their children because of its incomparable, immediate, long-term and amazing health benefits for both mother and child. In light of the recent breastfeeding mania regarding Karlesha Thurman - a mother captured in a photo, breastfeeding her child on her graduation day, we've been inspired to curate a selection of photos showcasing women from different cultures feeding their child, to further celebrate this act rather then criticise it because after all...it is not only natural but necessary!

On a final note, I will quote Rebecca Schiller and concur that: 'This isn't a breastfeeding problem. It is an issue that feminists need to take up, especially those who haven't yet engaged with the inequalities women face when they become mothers.'
