It’s been a contentious talking point for some time.
How do you feel about breastfeeding in public? And what about putting it on the cover of a magazine?
ELLE Australia released two covers for their June issue, and the subscribers’ issue shows new mom Nicole Trunfio breastfeeding her four month-old son, Zion. And it’s reignited the discussion — we’ve been talking about it in the Studio, and we all think it’s beautiful. It’s so tastefully done, and feels like a real celebration of motherhood. Trunfio wrote about it on her Instagram, “’There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than motherhood… I’m so proud of this cover and for what it’s stands for.”
And I agree.
Being Australian, I’m just a little proud that this stride for mothers was made there.
But I also appreciate that not everyone would feel comfortable breastfeeding in public — but maybe that’s because we haven’t embraced it enough?
The magazine’s Editor-In-Chief, Justine Cullen, explained that it was an organic moment. Zion needed feeding halfway through the shoot, and the moment was spontaneously captured. And I don’t know how you feel, but I think that’s how it should be — being a mom shouldn’t hold you back from living your life or working your job…Even if that’s in front of the camera, right?
What do you think?
