Breastfeeding isn't always easy, a fact that Karolina Kurkova knows to be true. The model welcomed her second child, a son named Noah, in early November, and now she's sharing with her followers that breastfeeding her little boy hasn't been a walk in the park.

On Friday, Kurkova took to Instagram to share a beautiful photo of herself breastfeeding Noah, but it was the caption that really caught our attention. "Taking a moment today to give thanks for the gift of breastfeeding," she starts. "Nature had things figured out long before we did and I believe there is no better source of nutrition for our babies than a mother’s milk, when we are able to breastfeed. It’s not an easy process, but I encourage you to not give up! It was challenging for me at the start, but I am loving every step of this journey. I celebrate the women who have made this beautiful commitment!!"

The mother-of-two goes on to add that she wants her followers to share photos of themselves breastfeeding.

While there's much controversy over breastfeeding in public and breastfeeding photos on Instagram, Kurkova isn't the only celebrity in recent days to comment on the matter. Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian took to her blog to share her thoughts on the subject, saying that if someone feels comfortable breastfeeding in public, they should do it.
