There is a lot of pressure on new mothers to make their bodies immediately spring back to their post-pregnancy shapes. With a lot of help - both with their bodies and their babies - celebrities often seem to get back in shape unfeasibly quickly. And one mother has just shared a picture of her breastfeeding her baby in the bath in a bid to encourage others to celebrate their bodies. The image shows year-old Emmy Waller, a mother of four, lying in a bath and cradling her week-old baby Alice as she breastfeeds. Women's bodies are strong and powerful, but I'm no superwoman. It's just something natural and this is how I look and I've inspired other women to feel amazing too. Nobody looks perfect at the end of the day but women have just got to embrace who they are. For Waller, simply the fact that Alice is breastfeeding is cause for celebration because Alice was born jaundiced and so was routinely taken away to be given antibiotics and found it difficult to feed. When I walk into the room, she hears me and her eyes light up. She gets cuddles from me, comfort from me, milk from me.

Intimate, bonding, comforting — yes. But sexual? Breastfeeding moms know the truth: the moment your nipple becomes a source of food for a hungry mouth, breasts are no longer even really breasts.
