Tia Mowry-Hardrict Breastfeeding Her Daughter, Cairo

In a photo of Tia breastfeeding her daughter, Ciaro, shared in honor of National Breastfeeding Week, Tia wrote: "#breastfeeding my son Cree was very challenging. I just didn't have enough milk and that was okay. However, with my daughter #cairo I was determined to try again and I'm so happy I did. I researched, looked to the #breastfeeding community for guidance and had an incredible breastfeeding consultant. I was able to #breastfeed #cairo for 13 months. Trust me, it was not easy. I had #mastitis in the first few months. Cairo also has a lip tie making it a little challenging. However, we did not give up! To all the #mothers who couldn't breastfeed. Don't beat yourself up. The most important thing is that your baby is feed, protected and loved."

"I'm laughing from both the joy and the excruciating pain of childbirth and postpartum. Bringing this little human into the world has been THE most difficult and painful thing my body has had to go through, but it has also made me feel like a freakin' warrior... ALL women are warriors! Now here I am, double nursing (not something I was planning on doing), to the sounds of beautiful diaper music 💩"

I wanted to be sure that I could give her my antibodies, feed her nutrients and give her enough of my milk to help prevent her from getting sick. Thankfully my worries were unwarranted," she wrote in the post. "Where breastfeeding with Aden was challenging, with Ariah it's been unbelievable. I can't fully express how it actually feels, but the bond it's building between us is amazing. I cherish every second I can sit down and feed her. It's our private time together, and I really find it so relaxing. It makes me feel good to know that I can give her everything that her body needs, and I plan to do so until she's one year. And women must do what's right for their baby–which can include bottle feeding of course."

Olivia Wilde Breastfeeding Her Son, Otis

Olivia Wilde had been careful about sharing photos of her second child, Otis. But when Glamour came calling, she not only included her son in the photo shoot, but decided to nurse him in the spread.

About the decision to do so, she said: "Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn't complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that. Breastfeeding is the most natural thing. I don't know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing — that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don't really look like that when I'm [typically] breastfeeding. And there's usually a diaper involved."
