When you're a mom on the go, you sometimes gotta do what you gotta do. Nikki Reed's breast pump pic shows a common reality many breastfeeding mothers face. And as with all good things on the Internet, some of the new mom's "fans" couldn't help but throw a few stones Nikki's way -- including someone who feels she's setting "unhealthy ideals of motherhood." (Say whaaa?)

  • Nikki shared this pic on Instagram that shows how real the struggle can be to keep up with your child's breastfeeding demands.

    "On my way to present at @variety's #powerofwomen luncheon and this is my hot date," the 31-year-old actress writes in her Instagram post. "Kidding. I have another hot date. But this thing is definitely our third wheel."

  • If y'all don't let this mom live her best life ...

    Seriously, Nikki's post had no elements of bragging, unrealistic expectations, or shade toward her almost 3-month-old baby. Is it really this hard to relate to a celebrity??
