Stunning Photos Of Moms Breastfeeding Outside Show Nursing In Public Is OK

Photographer Ivette Ivens wants to make public breastfeeding the norm. The Lithuanian-born Chicago resident takes highly stylized photographs of mothers breastfeeding outside to remind everyone that it’s “a totally normal thing.” 25-year-old Ivens is a mother of two, and breastfed her older son until he was three.

“I nursed them both anywhere I wanted. From church to parties, from farmers market to high-end designer stores.

Mothers do too. Strangers don’t know, so they shouldn’t care.”

Ivens recently held an exhibition in Chicago titled “I breastfeed my toddler”; later this year, she is releasing her photo-book, Breastfeeding Goddess. Ivens also specializes in family photography.
