New Breastfeeding Emoji 2017

There's Finally an Emoji For Moms Who Breastfeed

After much anticipation and an official request made to Unicode by Rachel Lee, a badass nurse, back in 2016, iOS's newest lineup of emoji features one new character for moms who breastfeed. That's right: a breastfeeding emoji is officially coming to your Apple devices on June 30!

While the discussion over whether or not breastfeeding in public is appropriate continues to spark debate, this new emoji should be considered a win for all moms who find themselves in need for the perfect graphic to represent their intimate feeding time with their little ones.

The emoji features a baby breastfeeding in "cradle hold," which according to Lee's proposal is the "the most popular method of holding a baby when breastfeeding." Other emoji coming this year: the hijab emoji, a hedgehog, and a giraffe (perhaps inspired by the viral hit April).
