Controversy surrounding breastfeeding is nothing new, but one awesome photographer continues to try and end the stigma. Tennessee photographer, Nicki Kaylor, came up with a creative way to help normalize breastfeeding. In a series entitled Latched with Love, Kaylor asked nine moms to write down rude comments they have received while nursing. Kaylor then photographed the women feeding their children and holding up the signs.

"I put this series together because there's so much judgment against mothers nursing their babies in public," she said. "Absolutely no mother should be in public, feeling ashamed because her baby is hungry and she has to feed it. I did this as a movement."

"There's been a few people who comment rude remarks on the album but overall, nursing mothers love the series," Kaylor said. "Some referred it as 'refreshing to see' because they've had the same stares and comments as well." Hopefully, other women will see these photos and feel inspired by these strong, confident mothers.
