Sarah Stage: Breastfeeding Photo Goes Viral, Empowered Mother Stands Up To Critics

Sarah Stage posted a breastfeeding photo on Instagram, and told her followers that anyone who didn’t like it can simply unfollow her. According to People Magazine, the lingerie model was nursing her 2-month-old son, James Hunter, in the picture, looking down at him lovingly.

“If you don’t like this pic, just unfollow me. No need to hate on a beautiful moment with my son #normalizebreastfeeding,” Stage wrote along with the photo below. Stage has always been pretty confident, and this picture proves that she isn’t going to back down on topics that she believes are completely fair game… and many people agree with her: Breastfeeding is “normal.”

Sarah Stage’s breastfeeding photo isn’t the first time that she has made headlines over a picture. The report indicates that Stage, 30, kept an incredibly fit physique while pregnant, maintaining a “clean eating and healthy body image,” which is something she spends a great deal of time promoting.

According to Mail Online, several people felt the need to voice their opinions about the picture, especially those who thought it was offensive. Although Stage was completely covered up save for some cleavage, people suggested that Stage shouldn’t have shared the picture at all, and that while it may be “natural,” it’s still something that should be “private.”

“I’m an advocate for breastfeeding and yes it is natural and has been done since the dawn of time, [but] I will never understand why women need to prove they know how to do it. Yes it’s natural… so is sex! Keep it between you and your baby [sic],” wrote one follower.

“I completely agree with breastfeeding and think it is great for children and mother’s alike! But I do not understand blasting it on social media – no one wants a picture of themselves on the internet sucking on their mother’s teet #toomuch [sic].” said another.

The Sarah Stage breastfeeding photo certainly isn’t the only one of its kind. Many celebrities take it upon themselves to post photos of this nature because they believe that breastfeeding is beautiful, and that they shouldn’t have to hide themselves to protect other people. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Doutzen Kroes posted a similar photo last week — and that picture also went viral.

“‘Breasts are a scandal because they shatter the border between motherhood and sexuality – Iris Marion Young,'” she captioned her snap.
