Olivia Wilde's Breastfeeding Photo Causes a Stir

Photo courtesy of Glamour

Gisele BundchenJaime KingGwen Stefani, and Miranda Kerr are among the celebrity moms who have helped glamorize breastfeeding recently — and now, with her buzz-inducing mom-and-baby photo image included in a spread for Glamour, cover girl Olivia Wilde has joined their proudly lactating ranks. “Breastfeeding is the most natural thing,” she told the magazine, regarding the pose in which she’s wearing a Roberto Cavalli dress and Prada shoes while nursing her naked infant son. “I don’t know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast.” Wilde added, ”Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that.”

I don't care if you are a model or it's for a magazine. That was stupid!

My infants always pooped while nursing. :D

Yeah, my natural child would have shat on my fancy dress and shoes.

If you read the rest of the article she says he's only natural for the magazine pose. She said he is usually in at least a diaper while nursing otherwise.

;) I figured. I just wrote my first thought. My luck, it wouldn't have mattered how brief the time was to take the picture, I would have been pooped on. Ha ha.

It really is an adorable picture.

I always wonder about the naked baby pictures. They are so cute, but inquiring minds want to know how much poop and pee was NOT shown in the pictures.

I'm glad that the concern about poop and her clothes are the issue and not the fact that she's nursing uncovered. :)

I'm glad it's causing a stir.  Maybe more young mothers will see it and decide to breastfeed their own infants.
