Nicole Trunfio unleashed a worldwide tidal wave of a half dozen supportive Tweets and a brand new hashtag when she posed on the cover of Elle Australia with her naked baby sucking on her bare tit. The moment was completely uncontrived, as painstaking explained by the magazine editor’s to ensure you actually believe her:
This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion [Nicole’s son] needed a feed, Trunfio gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set. It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.
In the wake of this supremely uncontrived magazine cover moment, the hashtag #normalizebreastfeeding took off among the social media mommies fed up with the zero percent of people who aren’t pleased as punch when supermodels whip out their tits to feed their offspring. The naked baby is another matter. Where will the children go for their hashtag about leaving them out of your shit? I got your back, Zion. Gimme a little taste of that teat and I’ll help you to a onesie and a proper bottle.
