We just found out that we’ve got to majorly step up our breastfeeding yoga game. That’s breastfeeding and yoga simultaneously, because timesaver! (Or, you know, because Instagram). This is quite a departure from the breastfeeding mom who originally caused a virtual ruckus with her headstanding/ baby suckling pic that went viral. The ante has been upped.
Instagrammer Carlee Benear is a Texas yogi mom who has taken on the mission of presenting the world with her unabashed breastfeeding yoga practice.
We are perplexed.
Admittedly, maybe a little confused.
This does not look easy. Or practical. And yet there’s something sweet about it, if not opportunistic and gimmicky. The kid seems surprisingly into it. Meanwhile, all the moms struggling with breastfeeding silently weep.
Not all the pictures are of yoga and breastfeeding. Carlee posts a lot of pics loving on her kids and of her own solo practice. But with the breastfeeding yoga pics the message she’s trying to send is certainly A message. We’re all for normalizing breastfeeding, being real with momhood, squeezing in yoga wherever possible and freeing the nipple! Maybe it’s a lot to take in all at once? In any case, it’s given our YD founder something to aim for*
