Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel is ready to step back on the catwalk!
The 28 year old lingerie super model uploaded a photo with her adorable 3 month old son Anaca last week wearing a tiny bikini. “Happy 2017 from us,” Swanepoel wrote.
As if we had any doubt that the stunning blonde would snap back into shape in no time! The first time mum is loving her new role and has embraced it with a passion. Just last month the mum spoke out about the stigma that still exists with breast feeding your child in public.
“I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I’ve done in the name of art?” she wrote.
Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children. I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I’ve done in the name of art..? The world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to violence on tv…why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding? -Breastfeeding is not sexual it’s natural- Those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child and intern on society as a whole. ??? ?? #mothernature
Swanepoel voiced the opinions shared by many women about breastfeeding. The ridiculous double standard that exists when it comes to women’s breasts is just archaic. We don’t blink twice when seeing breasts used to promote everything from milk to cars and yet we complain when social media shows a photo of a breastfeeding mum using her breasts the way they are meant to be used. Just crazy.
We need more women in the limelight like Swanepoel to normalise breastfeeding in attempt to change the perception of people that believe feeing your baby in public is wrong and offensive- because it’s not.
