25 Children’s Books That Depict Breastfeeding

It’s not a promising scenario:

According to The Collection at MoMA, images of women and children are frequent in the history of art, yet depictions of pregnancy are very rare. Even more rare are images of breastfeeding.

In reality, only 19% of women in the United States breastfeed at all. And when they do it in public, they are oftentimes asked to cover themselves. Even in New York City women still get kicked out of places because of this!

How are little girls and boys (and just PEOPLE in general) supposed to know what breastfeeding looks like, let alone is?

Well, with books like these – lets start building our own special library!
