I ran across this photo while trolling for breastfeeding info online a few weeks ago and it just makes me happy.
What doesn't make me happy? Blogland's commentary on this photo: "Maggie Gyllenhaal caught breastfeeding in public" (as if breastfeeding should be done in private), "This might freak some people out" (as if it should) and "I almost didn't post these pictures because of the whole breast feeding in public debate" (whether babies get to eat is up for debate?).
If more high profile women breastfed unashamedly, that might help to normalize breastfeeding in the public's eye.
Maggie Gyllenhaal: YOU RULE. I'm off to buy all of your movies now.
