Check Out - Olivia Wilde for Glamour

Check out these beautiful images of Olivia Wilde in Glamour's September issue. I love that she is casually breastfeeding her son in a restaurant, but makes a point to say that in real life she looks far from this when nursing. Even though these images are highly glamorized and edited, they still positively promote breastfeeding (which there is still taboo in North America). 
She says it perfectly when describes nursing and motherhood-

"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. Breastfeeding is the most natural thing. I don't know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing—that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don't really look like that when I'm [typically] breast-feeding. And there's usually a diaper involved."

I couldn't have said it better myself!
