Breastfeeding has been one taboo celebrities have often fallen for. However, Bollywood hottie Lisa Haydon bust the myth with a very informative Instagram post where she shared a pic of herself nursing her baby and explaining the perks of breastfeeding! Her post said, “I’ve gotten loads of posts asking about life after having my son… esp to do with weight and fitness. Seeing as it’s World Breastfeeding Week- time to give some credit where credit is due. Breastfeeding has played such a big part in getting back into shape after giving birth to my baby.

Look out for my blog post on mycityforkids.com on breastfeeding. Happy #worldbreastfeedingweek”." While she is the first Bollywood diva to take such a step and spread the awareness, here are 5 Hollywood celebrities who also took up this initiative to educate women about breastfeeding, by sharing pics of them nursing their babies!
