22 Year Old Bride Proudly Breastfeeds Her Son in Public Throughout Her Wedding Day

A 22 year old African American bride Anecia Wright got married to her Army beau this January, while still making sure she was able to breastfeed their son even on her wedding day. She even took feeding him into account when picking her wedding dress.

She explained her decision to Black Women Do Breast Feed on Instagram –

“I would like to share my photo on your page of me breastfeeding my son on my wedding day. This picture is very important to me because at the age of 22 so many people doubted me and said I would give up on breastfeeding and here I am 4 months later and still going strong.

I enjoy nursing my son and I made sure when I chose my wedding dress I would be able to nurse throughout my entire night. And I was able to.

So I just want to share with women that no matter who doubts you or who turns their noses up to breastfeeding that it can be done. No one should make them feel embarrassed about feeding their child in the most natural way.”

      I don’t think we should be ashamed to breastfeed both in public and private. I will always advocate cover up not hide. Whether you are breastfeeding or not, please be decent.

    Ppl have made breastfeeding or choosing not to, a big deal. If you want, breastfeed, if not, don’t. All these arguments for and against me I don’t understand. Maybe cos I’m old school. If you are shy get a nursing cover. If not carry go. We see more boobs on the streets of Lagos and some weddings and blogs than on a woman breastfeeding so wetin sef???

      In the country she lives in, it is frowned upon so her making this a big deal is quite frankly, a big deal

      Yes she is. U think Akata hide their ages like some Nigerians does? Shes 22 and pretty. I see what u are trying to do here, but her baby is only 4months old. Whatever rock her boat. I would suggest covering with baby overhead tap tho ( thats just me)

      ATL’s finest, why do you always say bs and generalize? I have white friends who don’t necessarily hide their ages but won’t tell strangers. I don’t know where you get your inaccurate analysis’ from. You need to quit generalizing and stop making reports based on people you know; that doesn’t make up from Nigerians.

    Pls what is d whole biggie in breast feeding, something women have done since the beginning of humanity.
    I breastfed my son, but I never felt a need to take selfies while doing smthn naturally that my mum, grand Ma, and my entire lineage has done.
    I also never felt the need to up and bring out my boobies in public becos I want to nurse. Even if I nurse at a wedding or so, I’ll go to a private corner, use my nursing clothe and do my biz, return to d party.

    Talk about attention seeking, who cares what you do to your boobs? Something’s are not necessary, you might as well breast feed your child at the centre of time’s square. Always looking for a battle when there’s none. Nonsense

    I cannot relate to this as a Nigerian. Grew up in a society where women breastfed in public. I saw mothers boobs in church, in market etc. We just removed our eyes and faced our business. And the mothers didn’t have to sensationalize breastfeeding by having to always reiterate how proud they are to breastfeed, not only that but take a selfie and disturb cyberspace with their breasts. The whole wide world has to know you are breastfeeding. This just reeks of attention seeking. They even created an instagram page called ‘Black women do breastfeed’, lmao.

      Bush woman it is not frowned upon in obodoyibo okay!!. These days breastfeeding mums are welcomed in restaurants, parks, shopping malls etc. So don’t worry, if na validation from white people you need to okay breastfeeding you got it.

    I’ll rather see a baby breastfeed and have people hid under a tent when they want to stuff their faces with burgers and cake mtchewwwwwww. People so damned corrupt they can’t see breast without their brains linking and associating it to some unnatural nonsense they’ve viewed on porn Channel. That girl is attending to her baby’s needs promptly and appropriately. It’s called responsive parenting. Well done to her. She don’t need to cover up, you need to move your seat or look at something else.

    What a beautiful image! They both look content and happy, people who complain about women breastfeeding in public are no doubt the same people who have no shame ogling naked girls on IG.
    I breastfeed my now 3 years old daughter until she was 13 months and I will do it again with my 2nd child.

  18. I hear

    Yes she can breast feed – who cares. She can also cover up a bit – it’s called modesty. But nowadays, different types of breast be flying around in people’s faces – it doesn’t mean a thing anymore. Gone a the days when people cover up a bit to feed their babies. Very soon people will be going around topless in the name of breastfeeding and civilization. After all it’s their breast.

    “This picture is very important to me because at the age of 22 so many people doubted me and said I would give up on breastfeeding and here I am 4 months later and still going strong.”

    Blank effing stare!

    Why didn’t you just send the picture to those who doubted you? Whatever that means sef!

  20. i must talk

    Women should not be encouraged to breastfeed publicly i beg! i don’t care what anybody thinks. Soon you will see women pooping out their boobs (of different shades and sizes) in Church while praise and worship is going on to breastfeed. This madness should stop…… care to ask? i am a mother of 3!!!

    The nipple isn’t pointing invitingly at you. It is tuck safely in the mouth of her hungry baby. If she had her her breast out with nipples everything for no apparent reason then you can call modesty police. I have seen women in church with cleavage out there and grown ass men ogling them nobody call Chief Justice modesty. Y’all need to get over your ignorant selves smh.

    This is such a beautiful image! For those of us born and raised in Nigeria we may not see it as a big deal but in many places it is. Breasts have been so over sexualised and people get offended when they see a woman nursing. I breastfed my 4 children till they were almost 2 yrs old and even when they were under 1 I know the kind of comments I got “Hmm you are still breastfeeding this old man” “What happened to formula?”. but I thank God over the years breastfeeding mums are getting more encouragement.

    Bride, breastfeeding, should the two go together? Let’s return to the old path where marriage is honourable and the bed undefiled. If an error has occurred, God is merciful. On this special day, express enough milk, be a bride
