'Vogue' Features Victoria's Secret Model Breastfeeding (PHOTO)

doutzen kroes vogueFollowing in the footsteps of the greatest Victoria's Secret models who are natural minded mamas -- Gisele Bunchen, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, Natalia Vodianova -- is Doutzen Kroes who breastfeeds her baby in the latest issue of Vogue Netherlands. Because, breastfeeding (as we know) is totally in vogue.

I love how these models make breastfeeding seem so effortless. Because it is -- sometimes. Not all the time. But sometimes, it's pure bliss. It's those moments that we must remember. During the squirming, the fussing, the issues with latch, we have to think of the sweet calm that comes over our babies when they nurse and the incredible oxytocin that we moms cannot get enough of.

I'm thrilled Vogue -- ye of $3,000 pants called "steals" -- is showcasing the beauty of this natural-minded mama and her family. Doutzen is breastfeeding her 5-month-old daughter Myllena and daddy Sunnery James already has a tattoo in his sweet little girl's honor. I bet he has more ink on his other arm for his 4-year-old son, Phyllon. What a gorgeous family.

Photos of breastfeeding mamas who look "perfect" get moms riled up making some feel this is an unattainable goal. But the fact is that breastfeeding is beautiful no matter what -- and you don't have to be a Victoria's Secret model for it to be beautiful. You can be that mom who barely got two hours of sleep, hair in a rat's nest, eyes barely opened, breastfeeding a little one who keeps popping off and rooting in the wrong direction. That's beautiful, too. And I bet Doutzen has those moments as well. The true beauty lies in what all of us moms do -- we try to do the best for our babies. And showcasing this mom doing her best in Vogue magazine sure makes me happier than a 8-page spread on Spring fashions. Thanks, Vogue!
