Victoria's Secret model Doutzen Kroes is another hard working mom doing an incredible thing to help normalize breastfeeding. Doutzen took a gorgeous breastfeeding selfie and it's very inspiring. She's nursing her 10-month-old daughter Myllena, reminding moms that the bond that happens during breastfeeding really is magical -- it can serve as motivation for us to keep going.

I love that she captioned the pic #blessed. Motherhood certainly is a blessing. She and husband DJ Sunnery James are not only parents to Myllena, but they have a 4-year-old son named Phyllon.

On another photo, where Doutzen split-screened this image of her breastfeeding with one of her modeling a bra, she quoted Iris Marion Young: "Breasts are a scandal because they shatter the border between motherhood and sexuality."

I hope we can all clearly see the difference here. Breastfeeding is not sexual. It's simply beautiful. And this isn't the first time Doutzen was photographed breastfeeding -- she nursed her daughter when she was a newborn in the pages of Vogue magazine. She also had a breast milk pumping selfie on her Instagram a couple of months ago, too. I love her advocacy!

Models breastfeeding are a welcomed sight. Any mom breastfeeding is. We are all in this together -- we all need the support as well. And if something like Doutzen, or Gisele, or Alyssa Milano, or Nicole Trunfio on the cover of Australia's Elle magazine breastfeeding are images that people all over the world get to see, that is a big step to help make everyone realize that breastfeeding is normal and natural and should never be considered obscene.

And it's not just models who help -- it's every single mother who breastfeeds her child wherever and whenever they are hungry make a statement of support. Thank you! Great job, mamas!
