Remember when Gisele B├╝ndchen said she thought that women the world over should be required to breastfeed by law? The model mom is practicing what she preaches by proudly nursing her 1 year-old daughter, Vivian and sharing the image with her Instagram followers along with the caption and hashtags: “What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep? #multitasking #gettingready.” After the birth of her son Benjamin, now 4 years-old, B├╝ndchen told Harper’s Bazaar, ÔÇťI think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.” After receiving a great deal of flack for declaring her opinion, she later added on her personal blog, ÔÇťMy intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children… I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.ÔÇŁ

She may not be strutting down the catwalk or striking a pose for the camera, but we think the Brazilian icon is doing some of her best work in this photograph: modeling breastfeeding.
