INSIDER Logo By Kayla Blanton of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 11:  Celebrities have the power to influence the opinions and perspectives of their fans, and that ability has strengthened tenfold since the dawn of social media.  Many celebrities have chosen to use that power to share information about topics and social issues that are close to their hearts. That includes celebrities who are also moms - many of whom are choosing to speak out and share photos that normalize breastfeeding. Breastfeeding, in public especially, has been demonized and sexualized for decades. A 2015 survey found that six out of 10  people who breastfeed feel the need to hide their breastfeeding in public settings, and one third feel embarrassed or ashamed to breastfeed at all outside their homes. Now, people around the world are encouraging each other to #NormalizeBreastfeeding by using the hashtag and sharing their stories on social media, and celebrity moms have joined the conversation. Here are some celebrities who have shared their truth about breastfeeding.
