Brooklyn Decker's latest Instagram pic is incredibly relatable.
Plenty of modern motherhood paraphernalia was made to be seen—think breastfeeding pillows that seamlessly blend into living room decor or diaper bags that look like stylish purses. The breast pump though, usually isn't on that list.
It's traditionally been used in the privacy of our homes and hotel rooms in the best case scenarios, and in storage closets and restrooms in the worst circumstances. For a product that is very often used by mothers because they need to be in public spaces (like work and school), the breast pump lives a very private life.
Thankfully, some high profile moms are changing that by posting their pump pics on Instagram. These influential mamas aren't gonna hide while they pump, and may change the way the world (and product designers) see this necessary accessory.
Sometimes you pump on a comfy couch. Sometimes, especially at work, you pump in a bathroom. If you're Pink, that bathroom is on a tour stop in Europe, not a typical office. But whether you're on tour or on your way back from Accounts Payable, working mom life often looks like this.
Last summer the singer posted this relatable mirror selfie wearing a contraption that you don't often see in public: A pumping bra.
"Thanks for sharing real life as a working mom! It helps me get through my own day!" a fellow mama commented on Pink's Instagram photo.The singer has previously said that that's basically the reason why she's so open about her experience of motherhood, to help other mamas know they are not alone.
We're thankful to these women for showing that breast pumps belong in public and in our Instagram feeds.
