Image of Angelina Jolie breastfeeding on cover of W magazine

In spite of the fact that Angelina Jolie is a little over-made-up for these private "candids", this is a beautiful image of motherhood. I like how happy she looks here. I also like how you can see her baby’s tiny little hand. Altogether now: awwwww…

    Thank the Goddess that we’ve got a high profile celeb on the front cover of a magazine breastfeeding – and looking like an etheral Milky Earth Mother. It really brings sexuality and nurturing into the same frame – to see one of the world’s most photographed ‘sex idols’ in this beautiful nurturing photo.

    I hope it does for breastfeeding what Demi Moore’s 80′s nude pregnant front cover did for the way people thought about pregnancy. And coming on the back of last years Facebook/MySpace uproar about closing accounts of women who had breastfeeding shots – it makes it all look a bit passe now.
