We love how Candace Swanepoel is inspiring other mamas to breastfeed in public!

Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel is just like us, you guys! Check out the working mama taking a break from her fashion shoot in Rio for Vogue Brazil in order to nurse five-month-old son Anaca on the fly:

Pretty impressive, right? And while we may not all be supermodels who breastfeed our babes in exotic locales while decked out in skin-tight minis and elbow-length gloves, Swanepoel's impressive juggling skills are totally relatable to any multitasking mama.

"When you're a supermodel and give no f*cks about taking a break from a photo shoot to breastfeed," wrote RN Katie Vigos on the Empowered Birth Project Instagram page, where she shared the dynamic image. "This is incredible. Thank you for giving power and encouragement to #breastfeeding women everywhere."

Way to go, Candance! Of course, this isn't the first time the 28-year-old catwalker has been the poster child for public breastfeeding. Back in December, Swanepoel shared a brelfie on Instagram—a close-up photo of her breast with Anaca nursing—in order to make a bold statement about normalization.

"Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children," she wrote in the caption. "I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I've done in the name of art..? Breastfeeding is not sexual it's natural. Those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child."

So with you, Mama! Keep up the awesome inspiration!

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
