48 Beautiful Breastfeeding Photos

A controversy

It is 2022, and, unfortunately, breastfeeding photos are still a controversial topic on the internet, especially on social media. Being a photographer who captures those special moments between a mother and her child, it is difficult to find a safe space on the internet to share these incredible photos. People who report breastfeeding posts, and talk badly in the comments are a problem. It also took a long time since Facebook stopped censoring breastfeeding photos.

A special bond

Without a doubt, breastfeeding is a unique and special bond between a mother and her child. It creates a deep and intimate connection and is the most natural thing in the world. We asked our community member Yakaly Di Roma to share her breastfeeding experience with us to learn more about it.

Breastfeeding – An experience by Yakaly Di Roma

“I have been breastfeeding for nearly 5 years. I started back in April of 2014 with my eldest Hans for example and am now tandem feeding with my newborn, River. Breastfeeding for me is so special because It immediately created an unbreakable bond that I am able to share with my children.”

The calming effect of breastfeeding

“Hans is autistic and this is the one thing that comforts him the most, it makes him feel safe. Nothing else comes close to being able to calm and soothe him, the way I can when I feed him. He looks to me for security and love in particular, and it makes me so happy that I am still able to do this for him.”

The most natural thing

“There are many benefits to breastfeeding and extended breastfeeding. It is the most natural thing in the world for example and it should be normalized, celebrated even! It isn’t easy, it’s actually very difficult, it is exhausting, and it can be painful. However, all the sacrifice that comes with it, it’s completely worth it even more.

Photography is all about capturing special moments, celebrating milestones, documenting lives, capturing the bond we share with our loved ones! Getting to Hansito’s 4th birthday and knowing he still takes comfort from breastfeeding, is a milestone!

A new life

Giving birth to River and having the experience to breastfeed both of my boys together is a milestone. These are moments that I will cherish forever. Therefore I will document it and create my art, one day we will get to look back on my images and remember that amazing bond we shared.

A deep connection

“When I feed my babies, that is our time, it is the one thing I share with them that nobody else can, that is worth capturing, posed or unposed. I have received many negative and hurtful comments when I have shared my breastfeeding photos. While it can be upsetting sometimes, I try not to let it get to me. I know I am doing the best for my boys, and I will continue to do so in spite of all the negativity.

Creating memories

“I share my portraits to try and help normalize breastfeeding photos, to normalize something that is actually completely natural! I encourage all breastfeeding mothers to do the same, capture these moments while you can. Enjoy every ounce of your time feeding your babies. Create memories that will last a lifetime and help to normalize it!”

No reason for a controversy of breastfeeding photos

“Seeing a mother in public breastfeeding or a photo of a breastfeeding mother shouldn’t be a “shock” nor shouldn’t be something that causes controversy or attract negative comments. It should be normal!

The support

“I will continue to breastfeed my son’s for as long as they need in fact. Loving them both with all my heart and I will keep doing what is best for them in the end. I will keep sharing my breastfeeding photos and I am extremely thankful for all the support and love I receive as a result of that.” – Yakaly Di Roma
