Moms Nursing Newborns, 1946

I really wanted to share this photograph because it’s simply a beautiful scene from 1946. The only thing is these are French women, so their culture by this time probably (and in all honestly, I don’t know) was not dead-set against breastfeeding like here in America. It’s nice to see women embracing breastfeeding no matter where they live.
