One of the challenges that mothers who just gave birth face is being bombarded with advice, which is basically criticism in disguise. Especially, when it comes to breastfeeding or breast-pumping in public, there's always someone ready to nit-pick the mothers. However, it's wholesome to see some moms on the internet defying such negativity and inspiring many other women. Recently, Blake Lively made a strong point by posting a picture on Instagram where she sported a breast pump while having a fun time at Disneyland, Paris. Thousands of comments poured in with fans across the world lauding "The Age of Adaline" actress and many mamas felt inspired.

After months of posting bump pictures, the actress shared a photo of "Puppy Bowl Sunday" with her mom and Reynolds.

On New Year's Eve, the "Gossip Girl" actress posted an image carousel of her trip to Disneyland, Paris captioning, "2023 Highlights: Pumping at @disneylandparis. Cheers Remy." The second picture in the slider showed Lively wearing a casual t-shirt and jeans and donning a sorcerer Mickey headband to match the theme park's vibes. But what caught the internet's attention was that her outfit included a wearable breast pump. Keeping up with her mommy responsibilities while also enjoying her time at the theme park, the actress set an example for many moms out there.

People thanked Lively for normalizing breast pumping in public which is often frowned upon and criticized. "Thank you for pumping in public and helping to make a positive change for the next generation of pumping moms out there! I’m hoping that by the time my daughters become moms, they’ll live in a society where moms feel comfortable and empowered to take care of their babies wherever they are. The more people see women breastfeeding in public, the more normal it becomes, so thank you for being a part of that," commented @exclusivelyexpressing. "I’m in PR and you pumped during multiple interviews with media and that’s when I knew you were a true Queen," wrote @kristinaargento. "So lovely to see breastfeeding and pumping normalized. But for god sake, woman sit down and have a drink of water! Mind yourself," joked @alisoncitag
