This Breastfeeding Photo Has Caused War Among Mothers On Instagram

The issue of breastfeeding can be a contentious one and a photo shared by one woman on Instagram is causing a major stir this week.

The image, initially posted by mother Elisha Wilson Beach, shows her breastfeeding her child while sitting on the toilet and was later shared on Facebook with the caption 'Every parent knows this joy'.

However, the image has provoked a strong reaction from viewers on the site, with many berating Beach for her actions and others commending her on sharing a photo that "pretty much sums up mommyhood".

Beach has since hit back to say that she had no regrets about posting the image.

"I shared it on Instagram knowing that some people would think it's TMI but it's reality. Everybody complains that social media is full of people pretending to live picture perfect lives and I see so many mothers doubting themselves based on those photos," she said.

"Well this is reality and so many mothers are doing this exact thing right now. Motherhood ain't pretty but then that's what makes it so beautiful."
