Naked Breastfeeding Yoga Mom Denies Staging Viral Photo

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The image of a mom breastfeeding while practicing yoga naked went viral awhile back. Now, the subject of that photo, Amy, is speaking out in its defense.

Amy tells BabyCenter that the photo was not staged, like many thought it was. She really does do this regularly, and unapologetically at that:

"The truth is we were living on a small community in Hawaii where our land was clothing optional and yoga was/is a necessity!" Amy said.

"I was just doin’ my daily flow when the little sweet pea came to sneak a suckle."

Amy said she chose a "simple life" in her 20s, focusing on what she believes are core values and traveling with minimal commitments.

She still lives in Hawaii with daughter, Naia, and her partner, but says that the family will soon move to New Zealand for six months.

On her blog, Daughter of the Sun, Amy writes that yoga has been a very important part of her lifestyle and her daughter now loves practicing it, too.

She also clarifies that her family is not just a bunch of "hippies," a word that Amy finds outdated, negative and not fit to describe her lifestyle:

"I understand our family is not the stereotypical ideal," she said.

Amy notes, however, that while "we might look different to the mainstream world, the closeness and love we share is beyond ideal."

Its really not that big a deal. Even breast feeding self help guides tell you to always change the baby's position because the way the infant nurses may not always empty each of the glands under or on the side of the breast so hey why not incorporate it into your routine. Awesome idea. the milk glands are fully emptied and you get your exercise at the same time.

Whether it's staged or not...who cares?! It's her life, she can do what she wants with it. Why do people make a big deal about breast feeding but porn is okay?

I think people who find offense in this should just get off the internet. It's better than all that crap you watch on tv. Breastfeeding is NORMAL, maybe not in the position she is in, but it is much more normal than any of that 50 shades smut most read.

Looks like a pretty professional photo, for not being staged. Guessing she regularly performs yoga, nude, with a cameraman!?!

the picture doesnt look professional...are you dumb? look how grainy it looks. if you read the article she DOES regularly do this. her partner probably saw their baby crawl over to her and he thought it was cute so he snapped a picture. but even if it was staged why does it matter.
