Breastfeeding is the first step to sound and immune health of one's baby. It's a bond which binds the mother and her baby in the most pious way. It is must for a baby to be breastfed for at least a year. Even after well known with the importance of mother's milk, feeding baby in public is discouraged.

Ivette Ivens, a 25-year-old photographer, from Chicago, who considers breastfeeding in public a regular thing and expressed her thoughts through her photography series of Moms Breastfeeding in Public. She is a mother of two kids and believes a kid must be fed whenever needed. She has been feeding her older kid till the age of three giving no heed to whether being in a party, market or church.

She's planning to release her book Breastfeeding Goddess this year. She also held an exhibition in Chicago recently, titled 'I Breastfeed My Toddler'. Below are some of the family photographer's incredible photographs.
