It looks like Teresa is really enjoying motherhood!

The 28-year-old Warm Bodies actress and her husband, Mark Webber, welcomed their first child together, Bodhi Rain, on Feb. 17. Now that her son is just over a month old, Teresa has shared a photo of herself breastfeeding along with a super sweet caption about how much she loves being a mom.

“I love being a Mum. I love every part of it. I love the way I see myself differently now, as a Mother,” Teresa wrote. “My hands look different for they are soothing when I touch him, the crook of my elbow now is for his head to rest and my body feeds him whenever he needs.”

What a beautiful tribute from a beautiful mom.

Teresa is now a part of the endless celebrity moms who have no shame breastfeeding their children in public.

While many people remember when Mayim Bialik fed her then 3-year-old son on the subway in New York City, there are many other celebrity moms who have breastfed their kids in public while they were still babies.

Among the celebrity moms who proudly breastfeed are Selma Blair, Pink, Gwen Stefani, and Miranda Kerr.

Mayim has since spoken up about breastfeeding in public, reminding society that it’s not a sexual act.

“When I was nursing, I didn’t feel the need to be immodest, but I also feel like that’s going to vary from woman to woman,” Mayim explained. “I would try to be absolutely respectful and conscious of the community I was in. But I don’t believe you need to cover up a baby eating anymore than you need to cover a baby drinking a bottle.”

why is this “controversial” exactly?
people need to get over this idea that breastfeeding is some sort of sexual thing that needs to be hidden. THIS is what women’s breasts are intended for….to feed our babies! would you call it controversial if the picture was of her feeding her baby from a bottle? no of course not! it’s a baby eating….get over it!
