A couple of years ago - a photo of a mother breastfeeding her kid while standing on her head went viral on the internet.
A lot of folks believed the photo was staged, and so the mother Amy Woodruff gave an interview recently to set the record straight!
And she says the photo was totally NOT staged!
"The truth is we were living on a small community in Hawaii where our land was clothing optional and yoga was/is a necessity! I was just doin’ my daily flow when the little sweet pea came to sneak a suckle. Papa had her out in the grass with him and she just couldn’t resist! This happens all the time by the way. When a breast is out and baby is around, they are going to try and get it anyway they can! I have been blogging for years now and this photo was just a simple share of a beautiful captured moment.
My blog at this point had been set up so that we could share our travels and Naia with our families and close friends. When I posted the photo I had no idea it would be shared the way it was. There was no showing off intended, nor did I send this photo out to any websites to gain attention. A few close friends shared it on Facebook as a beautiful photo of a mama connecting with her child. It was shared again from there and so on and so forth."
Amy says yoga is very important to her family, and her daughter is now a regular practitioner of it, as well.
She also wanted to address those folks who call her and her family a bunch of hippies.
"I understand our family is not the stereotypical ideal. We might look different to the mainstream world, but the closeness and love we share is beyond ideal."
Can't argue with that! It's obvious this family is VERY close!!!
But hey - whatever works! No judging here!
