Amy Woodruff, the hand-standing, breastfeeding mom pictured above is a blogger and a yogi.
On her blog, Daughter of the Sun, she explains the circumstances of the photo, which she posted back in April:
â€œThe truth is we were living on a small community in Hawaii where our land was clothing optional and yoga was/is a necessity! I was just doinâ€™ my daily flow when the little sweet pea came to sneak a suckle. Papa had her out in the grass with him and she just couldnâ€™t resist! This happens all the time by the way. When a breast is out and baby is around, they are going to try and get it anyway they can!â€
â€œI have read some pretty amazing quotes that people have posted about the photo. The best were people thinking i was actually hanging from the tree!? I did love the â€˜milk bongâ€™ quotes along with â€˜good till the last dropâ€™ and one of my favorite â€˜Mothersâ€¦. The ultimate multitaskers.â€™â€¦There are many out there who donâ€™t understand the breastfeeding yoga photo. This is a great opportunity for us to practice compassion with others as we are all unique with different experiences and different realities!!â€
Thatâ€™s definitely an unconventional way to breastfeed. You can see pictures of Naia(her daughter), who has weened off Amyâ€™s teat, developing her own yoga practice on Amyâ€™s Instagram.http://instagram.com/daughterofthesun
