Breastfeeding is a phase many women look forward to as it gives them the perfect time to bond with their babies. The world knows the importance of allowing the young ones to suckle at their mothers' breasts.
Being the ultimate nutrition for babies, there are many benefits embedded in breast milk when compared to formulas. Babies being breastfed are healthier and sharper than babies who do not have the opportunity.
In addition to this, breastfeeding also reduces death in children. Breastfeeding babies will help fight off infections and increase intelligence at the same time. The breastfeeding mothers also benefit from feeding their babies.
Women go through all sorts of challenges while breastfeeding their babies even though it is a natural and healthy process. Some people throw shades at them for breastfeeding their babies publicly while others criticise them for being too modern about it.
Regardless of the situation, women will always be judged for one thing or the other when they breastfeed their babies. The pictures displayed here show the awkward moments when mothers tried feeding their babies.
Women deserve to be praised for their tenacity when it comes to raising children. Some of them breastfeed the babies up to the point where the world starts to tease them about weaning the children.
See how these breastfeeding mothers took their breastfeeding game to a whole new level:
1. Breastfeeding with no cover
Olivia Wilde decided to breastfeed her son without having a breastfeeding cover. The celebrity wore a glamorous dress and held her naked baby to her breast. Motherhood could be as intoxicating as wine for some women.
2. The graduating mum
A graduation is a joyous occasion. This breastfeeding mother held her baby to her breast while she smiled for the camera. Even though she was showing a beautiful side of motherhood, the picture generated controversies as soon as it was dropped.

Mayim Bialik was spotted at a subway nursing her 4-year-old child. The Big Bang Theory star's action led to a series of reactions as people wondered why a child that old would be allowed to suckle at her mother's breast.
Ideally, she should have been trained on how to use the potty or the bathroom since children her age are already enrolled in schools.
4. Being attended to while breastfeeding
