Have you tried this yet?
In case you didn’t know already, 2015 is the year of the #brelfie – the term coined to describe a photo taken whilst breastfeeding.
This new trend comes as mums everywhere have been busy posting their breastfeeding selfies to Facebook in solidarity for one mother whose photo was reported for nudity violations.
Mother-of-two Kaya Wright was surprised to receive a notification from the social media platform after posting a picture she took while breastfeeding her 16-month-old son Kayden in the bath.
The 32-year-old posted the photo to a closed breastfeeding mothers network on Facebook but was reported by a fellow user and pulled up for review.
This is not the first time these so-called “brelfies” have caused a stir either. Who could forget Alyssa Milano breastfeeding on her first day back at work? Or Miranda Kerr feeding baby Flynn while getting her make-up done?

In fact most mums will take “brelfies” but the majority of women will choose to keep them private, Rachel Burrows from Netmums says.
“Facebook may have tried to ban them, but we have found nine in 10 mums back them and one in five have taken their own snaps,” she said. “It’s a precious time in your life and it’s nice to have a momento.”
In regard to this, and many other instances of brelfies being reported to the site, Facebook released the following statement:
As more and more people (celebs included) continue to partake in this latest parenting trend, it's beginning to look like 2015 may indeed be the year of the #brelfie after all.
Have you shared a photo of you breastfeeding your bub to social media? Or do you think that is better for just you?
