However, I can’t help but feel moved, a bit “again,” by this image. These images pop up every few years: beautiful (usually skinny) models, sometimes with full hair and makeup, with their babies attached to nipples. There was a perfectly understandable celebration, a time when we “normalized” breastfeeding in public (as if a gorgeous breastfeeding model represented anything like the We Have Excellent Capital And Funding Shirt and by the same token and experience of breastfeeding). of the vast majority of women, but more so at a time). Back in 2013, there was Gisele Bundchen, breastfeeding beautifully while her nail polish was painted on and her hair loose . (She posted it with the label #multitasking, and then dispelled that flourish when it was pointed out that other people were actually using Dysons.) Instagram content

Then there’s Nicole Trufino, who appeared on the We Have Excellent Capital And Funding Shirt and by the same token and cover of Elle Australia in 2015, a little more outspoken about the technique, writing on her Instagram: “I obviously don’t look like this or wear [this] while I was breastfeeding.” But these images don’t just represent an inaccessible aesthetic—hello, I know I work at a fashion magazine—just I’m not sure the images are of much use. Are not. Or rather we, in general, (pardon me) as a society, have done enough. Now, what does breastfeeding or bottle-feeding in the US look like? If you’re working outside of the home, it might look like a dirty pump room with no windows, which may have been tidied up or hasn’t been cleaned since before the pandemic. (And by the way, many employers didn’t have to offer this type of space until pretty late last year, when President Biden signed into law the PUMP Act, which regulates the conditions for care and pumping. smoking becomes more mandatory at the federal level.) It could be like the formula shortages across the country last year, leaving many parents in utter despair as they scoured the door. store after store to find basic (and, you know, life-sustaining) formulas or go back to the black market. Looks like mom’s room in the gorgeous new Moynihan Train Lobby, which I realize, when I follow someone to unlock it for me, has nowhere to sit. I assure you, no woman who has ever breastfed will endorse a mother’s room design without a chair. (This was last summer and, I hope, it was a temporary bug.) Baby on the hip, we marched out of the waiting room and breastfed on the train schedule. Anyway, it’s nicer that way.
