Tired of Women Getting Shamed for Breastfeeding in Public, One Mom Shows That It's Okay to Nurse Anywhere
Caryn Canatella created a hilarious video to #NormalizeBreastfeeding
Canatella, who vlogs about parenting along with her husband Bryan, is seen breastfeeding her 6-month-old daughter Cecilia in increasingly ridiculous places, going from the expected (in the nursery) to what should be normal (sitting in the park with a friend) to the absurd (in outer space).
The video quickly racked up over 31,000 views, and joins the call to normalize breastfeeding.

“What’s with society putting so much pressure on women to breastfeed and then promptly pushing them into a bathroom or closet to do so?” Cantella writes in the description. “SERIOUSLY. Breastfeed wherever! WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL? I’m sick of being told to cover up or hide somewhere to do the simple act of feeding my baby.”
“Bottle or Breast – a healthy, fed baby is best!”
The Canatellas know a thing or two about making viral videos – their surprise pregnancy announcement earned over 692,000 views, and it looks like they’ve got another hit on their hands.
