Black Women Do Breastfeed: Yaya Alafia Posts Breastfeeding Pic on Instagram

After the unbelievable social media dust up over NFL linebacker, Philip Wheeler’s girlfriend, Ashley Nicole posting a breastfeeding picture on Instagram, new mom Yaya DaCosta Alafia decided to post her own pics in solidarity. She wrote:

I know i’m mad late, but i haven’t been on the computer much lately. just heard about the uproar over @ash3nicole pic & had to post a copycat photo in solidarity. hope you don’t mind, beautiful sistren. i’m so proud of you and stand by you! #breastisbest#whattheyaremadefor #getoverit #mamasunite#movement. 

The 31-year-old new mom, actress and former Next Top Model runner-up gave birth to her first child, son Sakara, with husband Josh Alafia, on September 12.

We support you Yaya and Ashley!!

As we work to normalize breastfeeding in our community, we know that celebrity role models matter. So do everyday, around-the-way role models. That’s why we love to feature both on this site.

To help shift the tide for improved health outcomes for our infants and to give more black mothers the preventative health benefits of breastfeeding, including a proven reduced risk of certain cancers, we need more mothers and all mothers to share positive and supportive messages about breastfeeding.  Join in !!

  1. You go Yaya! I love seeing other people of color breastfeeding. I’m getting so sick of hearing from random people that “we don’t do that.” That’s why I post pictures of me breastfeeding. I’m breastfeeding in my fb profile picture and I’m breastfeeding in many of my Instagram pictures. Raising awareness is key! We’re doing what nature intended. We’re not using a substitute. We’re using the best! Breast is best!

    Just a quick edit suggestion: “After the unbelievable social media dust up over actress and former Next Top Model runner-up, Ashley Nicole posting a breastfeeding picture on Instagram, new mom Yaya DaCosta Alafia decided to post her own pics in solidarity.” You can mention her partner later, if that seems relevant.
